Any One Interested To Have An Airborne Vacation?

Inside the nuclear-powered ‘flying hotel’ that can stay airborne for months

CGI designs for the Sky Cruise ‘floating hotel' (Hashtem Al-Ghaili/Tony Holmsten)

A video showing ambitious designs for a floating “hotel of the future”, which could host 5,000 guests and would remain airborne for years at a time, has divided the internet.

Depicting a hulking jet that looks somewhere between a mega-cruise-ship and a space station floating above the clouds, the CGI video of the “Sky Cruise” vessel was posted by animator Hashem Al-Ghaili on YouTube.

In the description, the designers say the cruiser would be powered by nuclear energy, piloted by artificial intelligence (AI), and have its own disc-shaped observation tower in which passengers could see incredible skyscapes from above the clouds.

The designers claim the floating vessel would stay airborne for years at a time, with passengers and supplies travelling to and from it via electric commercial or private jets, which could land on the top of the cruiser.

The video - with designs by Tony Holmsten and animation by Mr Al-Ghaili - claims Sky Cruise would have no carbon footprint, with 20 electric engines “providing clean, nuclear energy”.

“Thanks to nuclear energy, the hotel never runs out of fuel and can remain suspended in the air for several years without ever touching the ground,” claim designers.

It’s pitched as a leisure holiday destination much like a luxury cruise ship, with the voiceover in the video highlighting multiple bars and restaurants, swimming pools, viewing decks, cinemas and theatres and games rooms - as well as wedding venues on hand for couples to get hitched above the clouds.

Sky Cruise is a concept for a nuclear-powered sky hotel. This video rendering shows the aircraft designed to fly with 20 electric engines, housing over 5,000 guests in nearly nonstop flight [full video, Hashem Al-Ghaili: https://buff.ly/3Op8VrE]

Chernobyl, 3 mile island, Fukushima, Kursk submarine.

I will be saving up to send my MIL.

Planes always crash and nuclear power always leak.

:D

But aeroplanes go up and down frequently. This one stays up long long time.

This concept will never take off.

Even now you can only shower in a few planes.

Cannot even shower on most flights now and they want to put a swimming pool?

:D

Since supply planes can land on top of it, sewage tankers can be sent to clear the tank?

All planes dump your shit out a hole in the back of the plane.

That's why you should never have a picnic or bbq underneath a flying plane.

I hope you didn't stick your finger inside and lick it!

Also don't lick any ice balls that fall from the sky.

The blue color is not blueberry syrup.

What’s the Hole in Your Plane’s Tail? It’s the Little Engine That Could: The APU 

You may have noticed a strange phenomenon when looking at the rear of aircraft parked at the gate: they’re venting out exhaust from a little hole in the tail. Through that hole is the Auxiliary Power Unit — the little engine that could. As with everything in aviation, it’s primarily known by its acronym, the APU. Last week we explained how jet engines work, and this week we’ll talk about their little — but often indispensable — sibling at the back of the plane.

The APU is a turbine engine that sits in the tail of the aircraft. It provides no thrust. Like any jet engine, it takes in air, compresses it, adds a fuel mixture and ignites it.

Once started, the APU powers both an electrical generator and an air compressor, Plumb explained. The generator powers cabin lights and flight-deck avionics. (“Avionics” is an industry term for electronics used on aircraft.) So-called “bleed air” from the compressor powers air conditioning packs, providing either hot or cold air, and — importantly — enough compressed air to get the main motors started....
