Well, I suppose it might be that the feathers are the visible sign of a much more active management of the control surfaces, made possible by increased computing power: birds do seem to manage more...

I suppose one way you could try to make a parallel hybrid work would be to have an ICE running at a constant power output, set to be just a little above cruise power. Surplus power would be...

How does a hybrid aircraft work out, in terms of power budget? A hybrid road vehicle is good for urban use, because there's a lot of deceleration which can be used to recharge the battery, but for...
