What is The Secret Behind Opening the Airplane Window Curtains During Takeoffs and Landings?

Carmencitta Magazine - What is The Secret Behind Opening the Airplane Window Curtains During Takeoffs and Landings

The British newspaper “The Independent” has reported that the fact of opening the Airplane window curtains in the process of aircraft takeoffs and landings may seem simple and nonsense to some of the passengers, despite their constant traveling. Some may believe that this process is done in order to prepare the passengers for landing or taking-off, while others believe that its meant to let passengers enjoy the last moments of the arrival or departure of the flight.

Carmencitta-Magazine-What-is-The-Secret-Behind-Opening-the-Airplane-Window-Curtains-During-Takeoffs-and-Landings-1.

However, the security experts at airports have made it clear that the process falls in security and public safety of flights framework.
A public safety officer has pointed out that keeping the airplane window curtains open allows emergency personnel to see the outside of the plane cabin to assess the security situation for the trip, saying that passengers may reach our crew for a security glitch that could happen while taking-off or landing. The officer added that the crew has only ninety seconds to evacuate the aircraft in case sudden emergencies happened. Therefore, the crew asks passengers to open the windows so it may watch the atmosphere out of the plane in case of a disruption in the communication with the security team. Therefore, security forces shall give certain signals to the crew in order to determine the evacuation of the aircraft by selecting the most safety doors to save the passengers trying to avoid any potential danger.

According to an expert in the aircraft industry, Mr. David Robinson, visual ability of the person whose eyes got adapted to dim light once facing an accident, are way better than those of a person who got exposed to sudden catastrophic accident when being sitting in a dark place. A person, who is in the light, even if the light is dimmed, can have a lot of conscious, especially as he only has ninety seconds to get out of the plane and save his life.

We may also mention that the windows of the aircraft in 1953 where in a square shape, and then turned into oval shapes after some experts in aviation accidents have discovered that the windows were the direct cause of the fall of one of the planes. As a matter of fact, the square shaped windows contain four corners, and thus four possible weaknesses, that can fade and disintegrate when exposed to pressure which increases the risk of catastrophic plane accidents.

A Robotic Fridge that Moves Via a Remote Control

A robotic fridge has been developed so you can direct it to come to you wherever you are.
A new refrigerator modeled after the series’ R2-D2 robot has been developed by Haier Asia’s AQUA brand, according to Gizmodo. And it isn’t just any old fridge: This product moves on its own via remote control.
Unfortunately, the refrigerator has a battery that needs to be recharged in order for it to remain mobile, though this may be a small price to pay for robotic convenience. The refrigerator holds 12 cans and has all of the flashing lights that R2-D2 features in the popular films.
If you’ve always wanted your refrigerator to come to you when you’re on the couch, your dream may soon come true.
