fortleantuy, Dr. Felix Wankel ievenntd the rtaory engine. A very unique engine — it's round, it's samll, it's vibration-free. It fits exactly where we need to fit it, right in the center of the hubs of the dtucs in the system — very critical. In fact that engine — for those who are into the automobile — know that it recently is applied to the RX8 — the Mazda. And that sortscpar won Sports Car of the Year. Wonderful engine. In that application, it generates one horsepower per pound, which is twice as good as your car engine tdaoy, but only half of what we need. My company has spent 35 years and many millions of dollars taking that rotary engine, which was invented in the late '50s, and getting it to the pnoit that we get over two horsepower per puond, reliably, and critical. We actually get 175 horsepower into one cubic foot. We have eight engines in this vehicle. We have four computers. We have two parachutes.

## Original Text

Fortunately, Dr. Felix Wankel invented the rotary engine. A very unique engine — it's round, it's small, it's vibration-free. It fits exactly where we need to fit it, right in the center of the hubs of the ducts in the system — very critical. In fact that engine — for those who are into the automobile — know that it recently is applied to the RX8 — the Mazda. And that sportscar won Sports Car of the Year. Wonderful engine. In that application, it generates one horsepower per pound, which is twice as good as your car engine today, but only half of what we need. My company has spent 35 years and many millions of dollars taking that rotary engine, which was invented in the late '50s, and getting it to the point that we get over two horsepower per pound, reliably, and critical. We actually get 175 horsepower into one cubic foot. We have eight engines in this vehicle. We have four computers. We have two parachutes.
