Today on Engineering Newswire, we’re driving 270 miles per hour at Kennedy, in a car, engineering face melting metal, and saving lives in a flying donkey. This episode features:

Engineering Meets Metal: Rather than playing traditional instruments, engineer and musician Tristan Shone uses a pile of Arduino-powered machines to create his unique brand of heavy metal.

Venom Goes 270 MPH at Kennedy: The Venom GT recently set a new world speed record for 2-seat sports cars by reaching a top speed of 270.49 mph at Kennedy Space Center’s Space Shuttle landing runway.

AirMule Is a Flying Donkey: From Israel-based Urban Aeronautics, AirMule isn’t the prettiest airborne vehicle you’ll ever lay eyes on, but it is unique in its ability to lift payloads up to 500 kilograms.
