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 4d
  •   astoncain I have a passion for #turbines! 4d
  •   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 ) 4d

  •   littlecoal @generalelectric As a teacher, I enjoy being able to share great quotes an examples of testing hypotheses with my students, so thank you! 3d
  •   generalelectric Thanks for sharing @astoncain! Glad to hear your enthusiasm! 2d

generalelectric Intricate hand welding is involved in nearly every step of the assembly process of a #GE Tier III locomotive. Footage shot by @cntalbot at our Manufacturing Solutions facility in Fort Worth, #Texas, where the most efficient heavy-haul #locomotive in North America are built. #engineering #tech 6d

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 1w

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 2w

generalelectric A view of a 2.5MW #GE wind turbine in motion at the Sares Facility in #Turkey. This photograph was captured by @seenewphoto outside the city of Canakkale, one of the country’s most extreme wind regions. Fun Fact: At maximum wind speeds, the blade tips can travel upwards of 180 mph. #windturbine #technology #power 3w

generalelectric What’s a #wind #turbine without a rotor? The rotor is made up of blades affixed to a hub, which allows for pitch adjustments. As the wind velocity changes and strikes the turbine blades, the hub rotates due to aerodynamic forces attaining a constant speed.

generalelectric Today, in honor of #InternationalWomensDay, we’re sharing this inspiring #quote by Marie Curie. Born November 7, 1867, Marie Curie was a Nobel-prize winning chemist and physicist who worked alongside her husband Pierre Curie on groundbreaking #research into radioactivity. She was not only the first #woman to win a Nobel Prize, but won two over the course of her life, becoming the first person to win in multiple #sciences. Here’s to increased understanding in the sciences and beyond. #inspiration #GE 3w

generalelectric Dr. Masako Yamada, a Data Analyst at #GE Global Research, studies the science of #love, comparing her #research to the process of a water droplet transforming into ice. It's a challenge to follow the changes in the millions of molecules during this process. Similarly, it's a challenge to detect the subtle changes that mark the difference between a normal encounter and one where two people are falling in love. She inputs data like heartbeat and breathing patterns into one of the world's most powerful supercomputers to try to find out how to quantify it. Learn more about the #science behind love by watching the latest episode of Invention Factory. Link in bio. #tech #future 3w

generalelectric Entrepreneurship, #innovation and creativity are at the heart of #ThomasEdison’s legacy. He influenced the world with inventions including the motion picture, the electric light bulb and the creation of the first extensive Research and Development facility. Edison may be a figure from the history books, but these words are at the crux of what #STEM is all about today. Here's to the next generation of innovators and creators. #Quote #WordsToLiveBy #Science #GE 4w
