A wildly ambitious design for a "flying hotel" that could carry 5,000 passengers billionaires

FTFY

The only possible purpose I can see for this thing is to attract the all of world's biggest assholes (Or billionaires. Whatever you want to call them.) to one convenient place where they can all be easily blown to smithereens.

Like the bastard lovechild of the Hindenburg and Chernobyl. This can only end well!

Nah, I wouldn't worry about this one getting to the first step of ending.

This gets closer to the mark, minus the billionaire toy factor.

I drew planes like that when I was 8 too.

"Concept"

I don't get why some people get paid big money and fame to make make believe stuff, yet my Warhammer 40K and Mario titan fanart gets a takedown notice from Nintendo and Gamesworkshop. It's bullshiat.

Nobody would build that, nobody would pay to ride around a plane to nowhere, no country would want it flying in their airspace.

You're mistake is believing this is anything other than a venture capital money generator.

"Powered by fusion"
Yeah, bc not only do you need to figure out fusion power itself but you also need to develop far enough to be practical in small enough form for this to work.

So someone did a Blender tutorial and decided to write an article around it?

How exactly are they ferrying passengers to it?

Is this the same guy who "designed" that top heavy, car-crushing monorail-mushroom?

I know some designs for doomsday fission jet engines, one of Feynman's jokes (because who the fark wants to build a doomsday weapon). But everything in fusion looks like an acid reflux, specifically the parts where they fuse to produce heat inside a magic cryogenic magnetic bottle. So, you're going to go from solar core to Pluto's taint to boil a kettle with neutrons? It's Bitcoin with major government funding, never going to do what they claim but make plenty of money in the process for people who don't have any moral scruples and should be flagged for deletion in case.

A bit of CG imagery is all it takes to convince reporters of anything these days. They're the most gullible people on the planet after Trump voters.

But how else is Feynman's estate going to collect patent royalties?

Guessing that designer doesn't know that turbulence occurs at all altitudes.

And they will make a movie about the flight continuing eternally after an apocalypse.  It will be called Cloudpiercer.

This does scream of a bad plot by the Master/Magneto/Luthor.

I'd settle for a good nuclear-powered passenger train.... with an on-board disco, of course.

What happens when aeronautical and nuclear engineering students work on a joint project. Emphasis on joint. And/or much beer.

Sky Cruise is a lame name. They should call it "Flytanic".
