(Conventional carbon fiber manufacturing requires pieces to be shaped and then baked in an oven to set, a longer and more labor-intensive process.) Fixes If Icon is a cautionary tale, another new airplane manufacturer could prove to be an inspiration for the eVTOL.
The remarkable thing about the hair-thin strands of optical fiber that Corning and other companies sell today is that any single strand of glass can carry many different beams of light at the same time, each beam wobbling at its own frequency and using its own method of encoding information.
