The next step in data security

Hoy queremos rendir homenaje a los miembros españoles del equipo de la misión Low Orbit Helium Assisted Navigator (LOHAN) - un avión de alta tecnología que pretendemos lanzar a la estratosfera con un motor de cohete.

Sumario grafico de la mision LOHAN

Hace tres años, con el apoyo de estas personas desinteresadas, lanzamos el famoso Vulture 1 (Buitre 1) desde Avila, y siguen echándonos una mano para que el Buitre 2 tenga tanto éxito.

Así que, la "nariz" del Buitre 2 y los estabilizadores "canard" representarán la bandera española:

The final Vulture 2 colour scheme

Hemos empezado a pintar el Buitre 2, y aquí está dicha nariz, mostrando los colores nacionales de España:

Mientras tomamos un par de pintas en honor a nuestros amigos españoles, podéis disfrutar de más sobre LOHAN aquí (en inglés), si os atrevéis a usar el Google Translate. Un saludo y cheers. ®
