In case you haven’t been following us, we’ve been having fun over the last few weeks over on AtomicToasters exploring alternative modes of transportation. But when we talk about alternative transportation, we’re not usually talking about a bicycle. Which is not, of course, to say that we don’t adore the traditional four-wheeled variety, but you have to give credit where credit is due for some of the weird and wonderful ideas that engineers have come up with over the years… as well as some of the not-so-wonderful ideas.
We’ve explored nuclear-powered aircraft — two of them, in fact — and nuclear-powered ramjet missiles. We also looked at a sequence of seaplanes, which sparked our Giant F*ck-Off Aircraft Week. Have you come over to join us? If not, why not?
