Two cranes place a completed wind turbine blade on the lot for shipment. Crafting this blade takes orchestrated teamwork. For example, one team lays a mix of fiberglass fabric and balsa wood inside large blade forms, following a precise formula to mold the blade just right. At the same time, another team of inspectors monitors the process before passing the blade to the next group—and that’s just the beginning. Swipe to see the blade’s full length stretched across the Spanish landscape, and check out the link in our bio for more on this complex process. Photos by @nicanorgarcia#renewables#renewableenergy
This image, taken on the SIGNA Premier, shows the complex, interconnected fiber tracks of the brain. Scientists at the University of Wisconsin–Madison are using SIGNA Premier, a new MRI system, that can enable them to see the brain better than ever before with visibility of the smallest details. They can now map the complete structural and functional neural connections in the brain to better understand and treat disease.

Here’s the GE9X rigged to a test stand at our facility in Peebles, OH. During testing, its unique features are put to work. 3D-printed nozzles spray fuel inside the combustor. The engine shroud, built from a material called ceramic matrix composites (CMCs), captures and channels white-hot air at twice the strength of its predecessors. And 16 carbon-fiber composite fan blades spin inside the 11-foot fan. Watch the 9X endure testing at the link in our bio. #GE9X#Peebles#aviation#CMCs#3Dprinting
A night shot of the GE9X secured in a test cell at our facility in Peebles, OH. Its world record-breaking front fan spins 11 feet in diameter with 16 carbon-fiber fan blades. Air streams through the fan blades to the compressor, which operates at a 27:1 pressure ratio—no other commercial engine in service has a higher pressure ratio. Learn more about what makes this engine so unique at the link in our bio. #GE9X#aviation#aviationphotography#aviationlovers
Photographer @jeffreymilstein captures one of five GE Haliade 150-6MW wind turbines spinning at the Block Island Wind Farm. The powerhouse of this turbine sits in a component as large as a school bus. Its blades reach 27 tons, and its tower rises about 100 meters above the water. Together, these turbines generate enough energy to support 90% of the island’s electrical demands. #Haliade#BlockIsland#windturbine#renewableenergy#energy
