ADIFO – A Revolutionary, Fully Functional Flying Saucer Just Like A UFO

For many decades, UFOs were more a chimera of the mind of a science fiction filmmaker than anything else. But now, Romanian engineers Razan Sabie and Iosif Taposu managed to create a flying object in the form of a flying saucer. The name given to this device is ADIFO, whose acronym means Object flying in all directions.

It has propellers that allow it to take off and land properly. In turn, it has a propulsion system in the rear that makes it accelerate. If we combine the two things, we realize that the dish is so maneuverable that it is possible that it even turns around.

As for the possibility of creating a UFO of this type with dimensions similar to those used in science fiction, the creators are cautious: “It would be a revolutionary new flight paradigm.”

ADIFO can not only fly, but it is also useful to the extreme because it can take any direction through its design. In addition, it is extremely manageable because its dimensions do not exceed one meter in diameter.

“The aerodynamics of this aircraft is the result of more than two decades of work and is very well argued, confirmed by computer simulations and wind tunnel tests,” says Razan Sabie. The flying device works in a manner very similar to that of a drone and, to develop it, its creators have spent years working. For their creation, they were based on the posterior cross section of the body of a dolphin. It has also been tested in the wind tunnel.

Tokyo University Builds A Model House As If It Were A Balloon In Space

A model residence where people can live inflating like a balloon in space, the Space Colonies Research Center of the Tokyo University of Sciences and the main general contractor Shimizu Construction, Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXAJaxa) made a prototype and they launched it on the 30th at the Onoda Campus (Noda City, Chiba Prefecture).

The model housing is made of polyester fiber fabric and folds up to 1 meter long and 50 centimeters thick so that it can be easily launched with a rocket before use. When it is inflated with air, it becomes a habitable space shaped like a kamaboko that is approximately 8 meters long, 5 meters wide and 2.5 meters high.

The interior is now empty, but in the future, experiments such as vegetable cultivation and water purification will be carried out. In the future, participants from other universities and private companies will be invited to establish new technologies such as energy supply and food production.

Chiaki Mukai, director of the research center and astronaut, said: “It is difficult to compete with Russia, the United States and China with rockets and satellites, but I think Japan can win in the field of clothing, food and housing.” Was.
