A Submarine that can fly

I was so amazed with the article about the idea of DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Project Agency) on creating a submarine that can fly… wow! Superbly! Amazing! Hehe..

Specifically, DARPA's strategic technology office wants a submersible aircraft that can reach a destination, whether it is 1,850km (1,000nm) away by air or 185km by sea or 22km traveling underwater, in less than 8 hours. Carrying a crew of eight and 910kg (2,000lb) of payload it would use a snorkel device to provide an air supply while submerged once at its target.

Wheew.. so excited with this one.. I do hope that this will really be made possible..
