Turbocharger Compressor Wheels

I've been spending my time binge watching turbo videos. These guys have a great series if you are interested in things turbo

So it's got me thinking - is there any difference with aviation turbocharger compressor design compared to land based applications. Apart from size.

Ball bearing turbos are a no-no in aviation, they fail very quickly, journal bearings are the only approved type.

Got to pass the lockdown hr somehow.
