FEATURED: Pedro Paulet and the Peruvian rocket plane

May 18, 2010

Note: I spend time both in the US and in Peru.

Stuart at en Peru published a fascinating post about Pedro Paulet and the Peruvian rocket plane.

Here are a couple of excerpts:

“Little is it known that the technology that led to the landing of man on the moon, of faster than sound jet planes and intercontinental missiles… first saw form in the experiments of a Peruvian in the late 1800s early 1900s… decades before it was successfully tried again by the man recorded in history as the inventor. …”
“… It is important to note that while the Peruvian was designing vehicles to “traverse stellar space”, in the United States the Wright brothers were flying gliding planes. Paulet’s craft was to take passengers from Berlin to New York in a little over 2 hours. He was deadly serious about his ability to build them, it was just a matter of resources and time to perfect the technology.”
