I always found his stories about working with cruise missile engines very interesting and slowly started to realize that Engineering would be a great career path for me to pursue. There are many new issues and developments being worked on by current engineers just like the projects that my dad worked on during his time with the government. Some of the issues and problems that are currently

Petrous being worked on by engineers today include are Tomahawk Cruise Missiles the best weapon of choice for the US military, what type of alternate energy is the most effective and cost efficient how important will the development of electric cars be in the future? One of the issues that currently that is currently being discussed is whether or not the Tomahawk Cruise Missile is the best weapon of choice for the government. Some key factors that make the cruise missile so effective are that the cruise missile is very accurate and can travel long distances. It flies at a very low altitude trajectory. By flying at a very low altitude it is very
