    [quote=]The Wärtsilä RT-flex96C is a two-stroke turbocharged low-speed diesel engine designed by the Finnish manufacturer Wärtsilä. It is currently considered the largest reciprocating engine in the world, designed for large container ships, running on heavy fuel oil. It stands at 13.5 metres (44 ft) high, is 27.3 m (90 ft) long, and weighs over 2300 tonnes in its largest 14-cylinder version — producing 109,000 brake horsepower (81,3 MW).[/quote]

  • In this photograph from 1962, President John F. Kennedy attends a briefing given by Major Rocco Petrone during a tour of Blockhouse 34 at the Cape Canaveral Missile Test Annex. Also in attendance are Vice-President Lyndon Johnson and Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara.

    The center was renamed in honor of Kennedy, the nation's 35th president, following his death. His vision to land astronauts on the moon within that decade inspired and challenged the agency.

  • I wonder what he's drinking? Gin & Juice?

    To capture this feat, multiple camera angles were needed. For the film crew (and myself) to avoid aviation authorities and fly below the 1,500-foot minimum flight limit, the paddlers had to set off across the crocodile- and hippo-infested waters above the falls before sunrise. The paddlers approached the edge of the mile-wide, 350-foot-high falls to scout the rapids below. This moment was captured from a helicopter circling 500 feet above the falls, battling with mist and wind blowing up from the narrow canyon. Challenges included extreme air turbulence and constantly having to wipe water from the spray off of the lens. I had initially planned to shoot wide at 15 mm, but a last-second in-air lens change in these conditions rewarded me with this shot.

    Even today most heavy oil engines are based on the Doxford (sunderland) designed/built engine. At uni my 1st year halls (lower quality than the average 1950s prison) were built on the forge site :(


    at work I have this exact same machine :) Everything is still bang on with it, and its at least 40/50years old.

  • ^ imagine if you drilled a hole in the wrong place on that casting :) I love that type of heavy engineering great photos

    .... some of them certainly were real ones
