Sick Day Part 2: More Sick Child, More Unreleased Content

My boy is sick yet again today, so it’s time for some more unreleased content in lieu of not being able to get out there and find some scoops for your fine people of southwest Florida.

Today, I present to you the unreleased PSA video I created a few month’s back in my graduate program for ThinkProgress.org. What follows is a one-minute piece on the expensive failure, the Avrocar: A joint top-secret U.S. and Canadian military flying saucer built in the 1950’s and 60’s.

Despite it’s failure to ignite a new fleet of cold-war era saucers, the lifting fan prototype designed for the Avrocar found it’s way into the future Lockheed X-35 fighter jet in order for it to vertically land, as described by MIT Technology Review back in August 2015.

My point? Fail to go forward. And despite the loftiness and hyper-inspirational public domain imagery of this video, I still think the sentiment resonates with me.

Hope you are all having a great Thursday!

See you tomorrow, hopefully with a healthy child.

-Alex
