9 Things We’d Like to See Powered by the World’s Most Powerful Jet Engine
The GE90-115B is the world’s most powerful jet engine. If it’s powerful enough be the driving force behind Boeing’s 777 aircraft, then just imagine all the other things it could power. GE’s said that their engine would turn the Titanic into a speedboat, and we say go for it! Make a Titanic speedboat. The sheer might of the GE90 has us dreaming of a better, faster, and more powerful world filled with things driven by jet power. Why limit that power to planes? We’ve compiled a list of 9 things we’d like to see upgraded with the GE90-115B jet engine.
How powerful, exactly, is the GE90-115B? According to GE, it can put out up to 127,900 pounds of thrust. For the sake of comparison, the rocket that took the first American, Alan Shepard, to space only hit 76,000 pounds on thrust. That’s a whole lot of power.
