The latest offering from the European commercial aircraft manufacturer, Airbus, has some interesting features.
On its very first flight in the USA it came to a screeching halt halfway down the runway because its onboard
computers thought the 3350 meter long runway was too short for a safe takeoff.

Oops!

If it does this on the ground imagine the possibilities in the sky.

------------------------------------------

The inaugural U.S. flight of one of Airbus’s newest aircraft models was supposed to be a big deal, showcasing the impressive new jumbo jet on its very first trip from New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport.

Instead, it was spectacularly terrifying and embarrassing fail. The high tech jet’s computer system aborted it’s own takeoff — because it deemed the runway too short.

Journalists and staff were among the passengers on the Airbus A350 for the chartered Qatar Airways flight that was supposed to travel 12 hours to Hamad International Airport.

The airplane even had screens on each seatback via which the passengers could watch the taxi and takeoff as it happened. Unfortunately, rather than watching the plane soar to 30,000 feet, it taxed, picked up speed — and then came to a startling and screeching halt.

According to The Points Guy Editor in Chief, Zach Honig, who was one 36 journalists and staff members on the charter flight, “About 18 seconds after we began rolling down JFK’s runway 22R, the aircraft self-aborted, bringing us from more than 100 mph to a loud, screeching halt in roughly 15 seconds.

“For a plane of this size and weight, stopping that quickly required a lot of force.”

If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Not computers such as these.
There are many different types of computers and the ones you're thinking of have been open to corruption by the oligarchs that own and rule the west.
No programmer of such computers really knows what's going on under the hood.

Moon

And people believe we made 6 flawless trips to the moon 43 years ago.
9/11 was an inside job.
No second plane.It was a bomb.Bomb in the other building.
You KNOW without a doubt the videos are fake,right ?!
Planes don't meld into steel and concrete buildings.They crash into them !!!!!!!
It's amazing how the building ate the plane !!!
Imagine those fragile wings cutting slots in massive steel columns !!!!!
How STUPID can they think the people are to believe that crap ??!!

So you think the oligarchs,  in their quest for profits, intentionally sabotaged their own computers to cause this plane to come to a halt,  an that somehow gains them money how?

I would think the oligarchs would want their plane to succeed,  that would generate sales an gain them profits.  All in pursuit of their never ending desire for more money an power of course.

An whats this new type of computer your claiming?  I didn't realize computers could now be built with a political ideology instead of electrical pathways.  

No programmer of any computer knows the whole code,  outside the smallest programs.  It takes thousands of people to program something the size of win10.  It would take millions to program a communist government for the whole world.  An said program would be just as open for abuse, bigotry, an favoritism as the people who were in charge of it.

Personally i prefer a computer that errs on the side of caution rather than one that takes risks.
