Three new vehicles were taken to Domodedovo airport in Moscow the other day: Boeing-747-8F Air Bridge Cargo, An -124-100 “Ruslan” an Il-76ТД-90ВД of “Volga Dniper” company.

Now they are building a new cargo terminal that is going to be put into service by the end of 2013.

    The way things are going in the petrol-chemical industries maybe we should be worried about developing better steam-ships and better rail roads instead of bigger aircraft. Just saying…

    Steam ships? that’s the most inefficient means of transport. Except you go nuclear, all other so-called renewable resources including solar PV consume more energy to produce than the potential energy saved from operation.

      You are basically correct. There has been no development work on making more efficient steam propulsion plants. However, you may not be aware of this, but steam locomotives were considered the most efficient machines humans have produced, not that different than a ship board steam plant.

      Have you heard of sub-critical nuclear reactors? One of these would be ideal for a ship board energy device. These reactors rely on microwave radiator to maintain the reactions rather than critical mass. There are some very nice things associated with the use of sub-crit reactors, first if they fail the microwave stimulation stops and they just quietly cool down, second they do not need or use material of weapons grade, and three their spent fuel is no more dangerous to handle than used x-ray machine cores.
