This 17-Year-Old's Invention Prevents Spread of Germs on Planes

  This 17-Year-Old's Invention Prevents Spread of Germs on Planes If it feels like you get sick every time you travel, there's a scientific reason for that: planes are prime breeding grounds for germs. With so many passengers sharing the same air for hours, chances are high that one traveler's bacteria will find its way to someone else. But according to 17-year-old Raymond Wang, this doesn't have to happen. To prevent people from sniffling through their trips, he's created a fan that reduces air-sharing – and, consequently, disease-catching – on planes.Typically, air circulates throughout plane cabins before it leaves.

Both planes were returned to their respective gates so passengers could deplane. The incident prompted a delay of about six hours for passengers on both flights. New aircraft were eventually brought in to operate the American flight to Dublin and the Delta flight to Seattle.

Citing an airline mechanic who examined photos of the damage, Forbes reported the American plane could be out of service for as long as a week. However, the Delta aircraft is likely to require less work.

Tuesday's collision comes less than two months after two planes clipped wings at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport and six months after a pair of planes collided at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, causing a fuel leak.

The Shortest Flight in America Is Only 16 Minutes Long .
There’s actually a flight so short that you end up spending more time on the taxiway (taking off, landing, and driving on the runway) than you do in the air. The total route is 62 miles long and in total takes about 45 minutes (that includes the time spent on the ground in the plane as well). If you were to drive from San Francisco to Santa Rosa it would take you about an hour and ten minutes with no traffic, so flying definitely has its perks. (Follow these golden rules to take the stress out of air travel.
