World’s biggest rocket. How would you feel about going to Mars? Or maybe an asteroid? Take a ride on the new SLS built by Boeing and ignite your human spirit
A Boeing airplane painted with the 2014 Mundial colours. I am not sure if I like it! What about you?
The raw metals, the decoleration after the extreme heat and the shiny composite parts. Nice shot!
Yes, I love engineering! Ok, let me set it a little bit more clearly. I really really love engineering! In any kind or form of expression that it is available on this world! From aerospace and electronics, to automotive and civil.
No matter what it is the base of origin, no matter what problem is trying to solve during this period of time, no matter anything. It is an amazing entity by its own means! And this is more than enough for me! You don’t have to be a geek or a nerd or any other fancy (and fashionable these days) word that is rising to the surface. You just have to be a honest human being!
And if you don’t believe me look at the pictures! Non of those are from a single engineering project. Is a small collage from a variety of designs, concepts and hard work transformed into real object of desire. And despite that, every single one is capturing what I am trying to present here
The mathematics and science. The craftsmanship and precision. The many different raw material transformed and shaped in forms and figures that go against their normal nature. Every single centimetre is there because it has to be. Every single decision is taken after testing, prototyping and work around the clock. Everything for a solution to a problem. No matter if this oriented to pure science, medical or even day to day life.
And the end result? Well, look around you. Look on your screen of your smart phone and tablet or even outside the window. Take a walk and admire everything. From the cars that crossing the street, to the cup that holds your hot coffee in your hand, to the notification that just came to your phone, to the airplane that is crossing the sky, to everything…
If it is not nature then it is engineering. And the sad truth? The word that you admire and want to live in, is not made by fashion idols and TV personalities. Nor from politicians and poets! It is made from geeks and nerds around you that will become scientist, doctors and engineers! So, the next time you will cross one of them on the street say a thank you to them! You don’t know why… but maybe he will be the one that will cure cancer one day!
Around the globe and around the clock, Boeing employees do amazing things. No matter if a project is outside the atmosphere or below the ocean surface, our team demonstrates the passion to build a more exciting tomorrow.
For years Boeing was on of the top commercially oriented plane manufacturing company in the world. The most iconic model of the brand is the 747 and for more than 40 years was the indisputably queen of the air! But recently the crown was lost by the most high tech design out there, the Airbus A380. In this National Geographic documentary (from the Megafactories series) Boeing is trying to decrease the gab and take its crown back with the 747-8
Improving fuel efficiency, even by one percent, on the world’s most popular plane makes a huge difference. This is the story that drives this Boeings concept design! After achieving success with the first 737 winglet, the engineering team was challenged with finding ways to make the 737 MAX even more efficient.

This is a Rockwell B1 Lancer airplane (now Rockwell is part of Boeing) and at this photo is with full power and wing tips at the highest distance, a common configuration during take off procedure. The B1 is a four-engine supersonic variable-sweep wing type aircraft capable of reaching Mach 2 speeds. Of course with a sufficient range and payload to replace the Boeing B-52
This is a nice video focused on the people of Boeing, especially the ones worked at 777 program! The official video is titled “Precision Craftsmanship” but personally I don’t think that it is the appropriate one. Of course Boeing demands precision craftsmanship but this one is kinda dedicated to the every individual that worked and put the effort to make 1000 of these faster than any other wide-body airplane in history. So, “The Makers” it is!
