21 ianuarie 1976. Ziua in care renumitul Concorde s-a desprins pentru prima oara de la pamant. E drept ca n-a durat mult aventura dar boom-ul sonic a ramas pana in ziua de azi. Si lucrurile pare-se ca revin cumva in actualitate.Acum doi ani Emirates se lauda ca din 2022 va arunca iar in aer faimoasele Concorde, zboruri supersonice cu un inceput fulminant si un sfarsit la fel. De la 2022, lucrurile s-au mai lungit pana in 2023 pare-se. Dar merg inainte si povestile supersonice se vor intampla in ceruri, normal ca la preturi pe masura. Deci, si dimensiuni ale aeronavei mai mici. Pentru cei putini cu buzunarul larg. Cel putin in primii ani. Mai mici, mai bune, mai rapide, calatori mai alesi pe spranceana. De la Londra la New York in doar 3 ore jumatate.Zboruri supersonice la un preț de clasa business” este, desigur, mantra startup-ului Boom Supersonic si a jetului sau “Overture” , conceput pentru a transporta doar 55 de pasageri într-o cabina de clasa business.Jetul Overture Boom isi propune sa atinga viteze de pana la 2.2 Mach, de peste doua ori viteza sunetului si de aproape trei ori cea a unui Airbus A380.Asadar, pregatiti-va-ti urechile pentru Boom. Soon.

The moment I reinvented myself, these were the words that seemed to fit-Travel Man. To see and feel became more important than to have and use. And then I started my journey. Me and my camera. And what I discovered I shared with others, in my own words. And I like to think that because of my journey,someone somewhere discovered the world,walking on my path. And if that really happened, it is the greatest reward for the efforts and adventures of my travels. At the end of the road, the only thing you still carry with you on the Greatest Journey is just... your memories. To gather stuff, to buy houses, cars,refrigerators, to indulge yourself with an extra pair of shoes, beside the other 6 you already have, to get another bank loan, to build another pool.... Such human actions, simple, routine, normal. So earthbound. And so farther from the sky. Because, let's be honest, how many of us, busy and head down tracing the worldly goods, remember to look up to the sky, watching in awe a murmuration of starlings, listening to the perfect whistle of the blackbird, how many of us still feel the thrill of a sea gull's cry, how many still bow when admiring a colony of penguins hatching their eggs at -50 C? We cannot but bow before nature and, as small creatures that we ourselves are, learn from fellow creatures, feathered, furred, with claws or fangs. We should better stay afar and watch, we should not bend nature to fit our modest dimensions. We should better watch and learn and respect their space, we should admire nature's wonders and do that today. Not tomorrow. Because tomorrow might already be too late. For them, but most of all for us. The only form of movement is the journey. View more posts
