Video: Drag. Thrust. Lift. Jet engines. Propellers. Wings. This animation breaks down just exactly how an aeroplane flies and it's pretty damn interesting. Each design element of the plane basically solves a law of physics and is part of the reason how an aeroplane can fly. Take the shape of a wing, for example. It produces lift from its special, slightly inclined airfoil shape. The airfoil shape of a wing deflects more air at the bottom of the wing, so when it's running down a runway, for example, higher pressure and more upward force is produced below the wing vs the lower pressure and less downward force above the wing. This creates lift. Which makes flying a lot easier.

Quantum computers are probably the most misunderstood of nascent technologies, which makes sense, because their very basics rely on the hardest-to-grasp concepts of physics. That’s led to people making some ridiculous claims, such as that they give you “god-like powers” and that they’re an “imminent threat”.
Slipping on the jeans, I was immediately ready to go door-knocking. “Have you heard the good news about ZOZO?” If you haven't, let me enlighten you.
