Solar thermal energy refers to the technology of collecting solar energy in the form of heat and making it useful, for example, by converting it into electricity or heating homes. Huge solar thermal towers are being installed in sunny places around the world to convert the suns heat into electricity via turbines powered by hot air. With this kit, you can build your own simple solar thermal updraft towers to collect the suns energy and use it to spin colorful turbines. Test the solar turbines in various configurations and compare the results from two different towers. Learn about thermal updrafts and solar thermal energy.
The Me 262 was one of the world's first effective jet aircraft. Its airspeed far exceeded that of its piston-powered contemporaries, allowing it to attack and withdraw with relative impunity. When flown by experienced pilots, these aircraft were very effective, frequently achieving four-to-one kill to loss ratios. But it was too late to accomplish much against the gargantuan bomber flights pouring out of England. This kit features an access panel with four 30mm guns, a detailed engine, two bombs and standing pilot and ground crew figures.

Twin nuclear power plants enable these craft to operate at unlimited range for up to twenty years without refueling. The class can deploy their air wings to nearly anywhere in the world. Now you can enjoy building the veteran USS Nimitz which has supported nearly every conflict the U.S. has been in since its introduction in the 1975.

These and many more details have been faithfully executed in this 1/6th scale model.

On October 4, 1957 at 10:28 Moscow time, a rocket carrying the worlds first orbiting satellite roared into space, signaling a new era in human history and the beginning of the so-called space race - an epic rivalry pitting the technological know-how of the Soviet Union against that of the United States. Despite some highly publicized failures, the USA managed to answer the Russians with the successful launch of Explorer 1 in January of 1958. The next major milestone would be to put a human into orbit, a goal that defined the USAs Project Mercury. After a long series of test launches including a sub-orbital flight with the chimp Ham on board, Mercury astronaut Alan Shepard became the first American in space. On May 5, 1961 Shepard rode a Redstone rocket into space for a sub-orbital flight that lasted under 16 minutes. Nine months later, John Glenns Friendship 7 capsule was launched into space atop an Atlas booster, and Glenn became the first American to orbit the earth. Glenn remained in space for nearly five hours and circled the planet three times. While these flights represented enormous achievements neither was an outright space race victory: cosmonaut Yuri Gagarins orbital flight of April 12, 1961 earned him the title of first man in space, and first man to orbit the Earth. Designed by brilliant engineer Max Faget and a team at NASA, the Mercury space capsule represented an entirely new class of vehicle. Just large enough for a single astronaut, the joke about the cramped capsule was that it was worn, not ridden. Despite reports otherwise, the capsule could be and was flown by astronauts who had attitude control thrusters at their disposal and a window for viewing. The capsule also boasted manual re-entry controls. Created by NASA and contractor McDonnell Aircraft, this Familiarization Manual explains all the systems aboard the Mercury space capsule including cabin controls, environmental and stabilization controls and systems, launch and re-entry sequence procedures, and navigation and communications equipment and procedures. Dating from June of 1962, it represents a late revision of documents created at the beginning of the Mercury program. Originally restricted, this manual has been declassified and is presented in its entirety, running nearly 400 pages.
