Technology can be beautiful. Lovely shot, Ryan!

Thanks Marilyn! This is the most powerful engine ever built. It's hard not to be impressed by that, but it's also got so many shapes and patterns to offer I could have just looked at these for hours. Ryan

Yes, you're right, it even has a kind of peacock green color. Thanks Nicolas!

Very impressing shot, Ryan! It's amazing how beautiful an engine can look! Greetings, Anne

Thanks Anne! I agree, it's a perfect example of form and function. There's something really pure about it (and the fact that it generates a million and a half pounds of force is just cool).

Greetings, Ryan
