A planned new European military transport plane could be jointly developed by Airbus and the Russian-Ukrainian company Antonov, Germany's defense minister told a meeting of his NATO counterparts Thursday. "We have given a green light for a joint project," said Volker Ruhe after talks held in the Netherlands. Involving Antonov in the project would help keep down costs, which would be prohibitively high if Airbus were to develop the plane on its own, Ruhe said. Eight European countries this summer agreed to re-launch a project to develop a Future Large Aircraft, or FLA, to replace U.S.-built Hercules and the French-German Transall starting from the year 2004. The project had been suspended for a year because of concerns that developing the new plane would be too expensive. Development costs were estimated at around $7 billion. The eight European countries involved in the project have indicated they will need a total of 291 new planes: 75 for Germany, 50 for France, 45 for Britain and 44 for Italy. The other countries involved are Spain, Turkey, Belgium and Portugal. The FLA is to be a four-engine plane with a capacity to carry loads weighing up to 32 metric tons, with a breadth of four meters, over distances of 4,000 to 5,000 kilometers at a cruising speed of 700 kilometers per hour. Eight Western European business groups are to be involved in producing the aircraft: the four members of the Airbus consortium Aerospatiale, British Aerospace, Daimler and Spain's CASA plus Alenia of Italy, Belgium's Flabel, OGMA of Portugal and Turkish Aerospace Industries. Theodore Benien, a spokesman for Daimler Benz Aerospace in Munich, confirmed Thursday talks are being held with Antonov but would not give further details. "Cooperation with Antonov on the development and production of the new generation transport aircraft is conceivable, but there are no decisions yet," Benien said. "We think [Antonov's latest aircraft model], the An-70, is a very impressive aircraft," he said, adding that the consortium had expressed its interest to Antonov even before the Moscow air show. ()

The toroids located inside the electrons and positrons, we called photons. By the way, scientists from the University of Washington created a high-speed camera capable of photonizing photons. The photograph shows a toroidal model of a photon. http://round-the-world.org/?p=1366 In our opinion, the quanta of an electromagnetic wave are electrons and positrons, which determine the length of an electromagnetic wave. Photons also control the wavelength of the photon itself, or the color emitted by the photon. Thus, a photon is a quantum of a color that is carried by one or another electromagnetic wave.

The unifying element of all interactions: gravitational, magnetic, electromagnetic, nuclear-strong, nuclear-weak is graviton. Gravitons are generated by atoms of atoms rotating at great speed. Graviton is a mini whirl of ether, which by its rotation generates the north and south poles of magnets. All matter of the universe is composed of gravitons and is surrounded by them. Attracted to each other by different poles, gravitons form graviton chains that form gravitational, magnetic and electromagnetic fields. Gravitons are also quanta of the gravitational fields of atoms and their nuclei.

A. Ampere's hypothesis about the nature of magnetism, based on the fact that the atoms of all substances, spinning around the nucleus of the atom, generate microcurrents that produce magnetism is not true. Magnetism is determined by gravitons - magnetic dipoles, from which the entire material world is composed.

Summary A new concept of electricity is needed primarily because the modern concept of electricity believes that the conduction current is the movement of free electrons with stationary ions. But Faraday two hundred years ago put an experiment that showed that the conduction current is a movement, both negative and positive charges In addition, the current concept of electricity is not able to explain, for example, how an electric current generates magnetism, how superconductivity is formed, how the current is rectified, etc. The new concept of electricity must begin with the realization that the ether is not only the medium of light propagation, but the environment in which natural and artificial electric currents are distributed. Key words: superconductivity, photoelectric effect, current, electron, positron, graviton.

Верующие в теорию относительности Эйнштейна не отличают объективную реальность от субъективной реальности. Конкретный стул, который можно поломать, это объективная реальность. Стул, как обобщающее понятие, нельзя поломать потому, что он существует только в нашей голове.
