^Yeah, that technology will be very useful for both low speed and high speed flight. They want it for fixed wings on supersonic aircraft and also on the rotors of helicopters. Although, I'm not sure they'd be exactly the same in both circumstances.

And thats the beauty of it truly, the metal changes to adapt to different situations, I'd imagine this is simply another situation in which the metal can adapt and be used differently, I would love to know how you can find these videos, otherwise you can certainly count on me jumping into these threads each day to pester you about it. But then again human interaction is what makes us well... human.
Now we can dissect this possible innovation and look at it not only from the"what it will be like" standpoint but also from an economic standpoint, social standpoint, moral standpoint, etc.
From an economical standpoint what would be the possible cost of this machine? Would it be allowed to fulfill different roles which would change warfare forever by making specified planes lost forever to a forever changing and adaptable single plane that can be manufactured?
How will society view this new innovation? What does this metal have to offer on the social impact of life? How will the metal affect people's view of the military or future? Can machinery in the civilian world find a potential use for this metal once the millitary "releases" it to the public for use or if it releases it to the public for use?
How will this machine of death impact the ethical viewpoint of war? Will less pilots have to give their lives because now America has a do it all plane so we dont need specified pilots for specified roles (bombing, fighter pilots, interceptors, etc.)?
So many ways to digest and view these new technologies, it certainly is rather exciting, and this is what I personally love about innovation, its never close minded, it affects life in so many different ways. And these are the questions we as humanity need to ask.
I'm not sure if pilots receive specified training for different planes, I'll look up on that before I start spouting things out of my !@#, it's always good to be informed as Hylozoist has shown me.
