Also Jacqueline Freney has won her sixth gold medal in the 2012 Paralympics in swimming. Congrats!
Tonight I wanted to share this video from the University of Maryland. This vehicle is a Gamera II Human Powered Helicopter and the goals is to continue flight testing to achieve a 3 meter (10 ft) altitude as part of the AHS Igor I. Sikorsky Human Powered Helicopter Competition (‘The Sikorsky Prize‘). This is a very cool vehicle I would want to fly!
