Russia has finally taken the wraps off its next-gen stealth fighter, which will not only compete head-to-head with the U.S. F-22 Raptor, but may also represent a more affordable purchase for other nations on the world market. The BBC reports that the T-50 PAK-FA jet was developed by the Sukhoi company in collaboration with India, and marks the latest modernization attempt by Russia to update its Soviet-era hardware.
The F-22 Raptor stealth fighter was designed to defeat any threat it might face on the modern battlefield. However, earlier today an even tougher fighter based out of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue shot down seven of the planes before they even got off the assembly line.
Testing high-tech products and fighter planes are only some of the dream jobs for engineers

While we take pride in informing you of the most disgusting, vile and otherwise detestable jobs in science, IEEE Spectrum takes a slightly different approach in its annual presentation of engineering dream jobs. The magazine just released this years selections.
