generalelectric Look out for the tumbleweed! Photographer @VincentLaForet chases GE’s Tier 4 #locomotive as it races down the Transit Test Track at the Transportation Technology Center. Over its lifetime, this locomotive will travel approximately 3.4 million to 4.8 million miles. #GETier4 #tech #badass #machine 2d

generalelectric A behind-the-scenes look at photographer @VincentLaForet as he takes to the air to capture #GE’s Evolution Series Tier 4 #locomotive. Powered by GE’s 12-cylinder engine, this machine is making history as the first mainline locomotive to meet the EPA’s Tier 4 emission standards, which call for the single-largest emission reduction in rail history. #GETier4 #tech #innovation 4d

generalelectric The video above is from one of Thomas Edison’s early films from 1894. The 23 second film features two #cats boxing, complete with custom-made gloves and boxing ring. According to the Library of Congress, the footage was filed by Raff & Gamon, Edison’s distributors at the time, under the description, “A very interesting and amusing subject.” #tbt #throwback #vintage #history 1w

generalelectric Considered one of the fathers of industrial research, Willis R. Whitney founded #GE’s Research Laboratory in the early 1900s. Here, Willis led a team of gifted scientists, including Nobel laureate Irving Langmuir. This group of researchers worked on some of the most important projects of the time, including X- ray technology and the wireless telegraph. The laboratory gained worldwide reputation for the quality of its work, proving the value of organized #research. Whitney’s influence extended far beyond GE as he inspired generations of researchers, encouraging them to remain curious. #quote #inspiration 1w

generalelectric The front end of a GE90 engine is looking good at #GE #Aviation’s testing facility in Peebles, OH. Fun Fact: For take off power, the #GE90 uses about 3,600 pounds of air per second. That would suck out all the air out of Madison Square Garden in just seconds. #Stayfly with @GEAviation. #badass #jetengine #avgeek 2w

generalelectric McLean’s Mountain Wind Farm on Manitoulin Island in #Canada is home to 24 Internet-connected #GE 2.5MW #wind turbines that bring renewable #energy to the world’s largest freshwater island. These intelligent turbines provide data insights 24/7, leading to proactive maintenance, less downtime and a more efficient wind farm. #tech #windturbine 2w

generalelectric “Science is a great game. It is inspiring and refreshing. The playing field is the universe itself.” These words were once spoken by Nobel-prize winning physicist, Isidor Isaac Rabi who is recognized for his development of the resonance method for recording the magnetic properties of #atoms. His method provided the basis for all molecular experimentation and precise measurements for the guidance systems of missiles and satellites, lasers and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) that researchers still use today.

generalelectric The #GE90 powers the Boeing 777 and holds the world record for the ‘Most Powerful Jet Engine.’ It boasts outputs between 110,000 to 115,000 pounds of thrust and uses composite carbon fiber fan blades making it the lightest and most durable blades ever produced. Fun Fact: The GE90 is so powerful that it would turn the Titanic into a speedboat! #Stayfly with @GEAviation. #GE #jetengine #avgeek 2w

generalelectric If it weren't for the world's scientists, engineers, tinkerers and pioneers, our knowledge of how the world works would be vastly limited. So, unleash your inner scientist and don't forget these words from #AlbertEinstein. There is nothing to be lost from experimentation, but everything to be gained. #quote #inspiration #science 3w

generalelectric Hey #AVGeeks! @GEAviation is now on Instagram to keep you up-to-date on the latest aviation news!

A #GEnx jet engine hangs overhead as it undergoes testing at #GE's #aviation facility in Peebles, Ohio. The fastest-selling engine in GE Aviation history, this badass machine utilizes advanced GE propulsion #technology to reduce weight, improve performance and lower maintenance. It offers up to 15 percent better fuel consumption, which means 15 percent fewer CO2 emissions. The GEnx is the world’s first commercial jet engine to host both a front fan case and fan blades made of carbon fiber composite material. Not only is it the quietest, most passenger-friendly engine, but it’s redefining aviation history. #tech #science

generalelectric These words were once spoken by Irish writer and poet Oscar Wilde. Born on October 16, 1854, Wilde was one of the most prominent playwrights of the Victorian Era. Known for his sharp wit and agile mind, he’s remembered for the way he illustrated his life through his plays and the beautiful words he spoke. He reminds us that #success is a #science. So keep testing your hypotheses, keep experimenting, and never be afraid to fail. #OscarWilde #quote #GE #motivation 3w
  •   yassershazli I think success is more a result @generalelectric than conditions, it means the same somehow, but its realisation is very relative specially if we talk about long term success or real success when we absolutely are not including marketing tricks or fake impressions. Criteria is like what you mean with conditions under which circumstances that makes it thrive. For the most people success is manipulation. And if you're a rebel that refuses manipulation of genetic manipulated false majority and become a dictator, is also manipulation. The subject of power is not out of the question which means one difference whether good or bad dictatorship in this situation. And that would be the path to freedom or the famous word exodus ( in the jungle ) 3w

generalelectric Intricate hand welding is involved in nearly every step of the assembly process of a #GE Tier III locomotive.

generalelectric ZeeWeed, pictured above, is a low-energy solution for both cities and industries to filter out solids, bacteria, viruses and other pathogens in water. It uses seaweed-inspired membranes punctured with thousands of tiny holes 400 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair. These perforations let water molecules through, but capture the bacteria and algae nutrients. Every day, #GE water purification technology like the #ZeeWeed enables one billion gallons of wastewater to be reused worldwide. #WorldWaterDay 1mon

generalelectric Energy and water have an interdependent relationship: every kWh of energy delivered demands 25 gallons of #water. In honor of #WorldWaterDay on Sunday, we're celebrating the cleanest clean #energy source. According to a U.N. report, wind energy is the most sustainable renewable energy source because of its low impact on greenhouse gas emissions and water conservation.

generalelectric Do you ever ponder the mysteries of the #universe? Astronomer, Carl Sagan was one of the world’s most notable #scientists in the late twentieth century, widely known for his award-winning 1980 television series “Cosmos." Sagan served as our guide to the planets during the golden age of #solarsystem exploration and helped teach a generation to appreciate the universe. He taught us to embrace humanity and #dream of one day going beyond the #stars. #Quote #WordsofWisdom 1mon
