It's been called "black magic": an engine that can push a plane from 0 to Mach 3.2 without breaking a sweat. Here's how it works.

I remember when the secret came out. The afterburner section was fed by supersonic ram air. Not only did that create a very efficient secondary combustion but, when extra fuel was added, you got a lot more power than in a normal afterburner. That being just dumping in more fuel into the exhaust which is lower in usable oxygen.

People can be extraordinarily clever.... I am looking forward to getting away from the faster than light drives, and going into the "Time Drives". Have you seen this documentary? The Evolution of Time (Directors Cut) https://www.mgtow.tv/v/CBTQvQ . Some people take acid and go wow.... I watch this and go "Wow - I can't cope - this is just too far out". I have watched it about 10 or 12 times so far and it takes some quite a great deal of adjustment to understand - like catching farts in a jar from another continent. How do you talk to an astronaut in the ISS who is (exaggerating somewhat) say 1/2 a second behind you because of his velocity and time dialation, and yet ..... this is too much like tripping badly stone cold sober.

@Life_N_Times_of_Shane_T_Hanson: I don't even think time exists. There is only the here and now. Time measures the beginning and end of a thing. Excluding objects, once an action is done, it no longer exists in space. Even object cease to exist in their present form. There is no time to go back to and rediscover the thing or action. This is why George Orwell talked about how The Party is able to control the Past and remake it into whatever they say happened. Have you noticed the half-life of websites and web pages getting shorter and shorter before they disappear? It's getting too easy for the (((TPTB))) to rewrite history and claim something different than what we remember. And we'll have NO WAY OF DISPROVING IT because the internet archives will be fully stripped of any contrary evidence.
