They're both crazy, rare, insanely fast, insanely expensive, & stealth-like !
Absolutely amazing aerobatic maneuvers thanks to 3D Thrust Vector Control and fully functional canards - see how everything works at the end of the clip.

This week, Scott Pierce takes a look at a beloved universe in a galaxy far, far away and an undead disappointment.
The original F-22 is a highly agile fighter aircraft, but what this young guy does with his Indoor F-22 is just insane. Using thrust vector control, he can perform manoeuvres normal aerodynamic control would not permit.
The SU-37 is an all-weather, vector-thrusting air-superiority fighter produced for the Soviet airforce. Seen here being put through its paces at an airshow.

The F-22 airshow demo at the Sacramento Airshow was awesome! The pilot, Major "Max" Moga, talks about the Raptor's capabilities as the stealthiest and most capable fighter in the world today. From the vertical pull at takeoff, the show was a jaw dropper. The thrust vectoring nozzles allowed Max to perform maneuvers that seemed to defy normal flight.
(of note: a highly modified "cosmological constant" has now been added to general relativity equations to account for "dark energy")
Actually it is not surprising that a foundational discovery into science has a direct "Christian" connection, for, contrary to popular belief, almost every foundational breakthough in science can be traced to a devout christian.
Christianity and the Birth of Science
Excerpt: Of course, the cynics would claim these men were not *really* Christians. That is, they really didn't *believe* in Christianity, but they professed such beliefs because they did not want to be persecuted. This is the "closet-atheist" hypothesis. But it doesn't square with the facts.
Many of the founders of modern science were also very interested in theology. If you read Pascal, this is obvious. Mendel was a monk. Newton often said his interest in theology surpassed his interest in science. Newton did end his Principles with:
"This most beautiful system of sun, planets, and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful Being...This Being governs all things, not as the soul of the world, but as Lord over all; and on account of his dominion he is wont to be called Lord God."
As Charles Hummel notes,
"Newton's religion was no mere appendage to his science; he would have been a theist no matter what his profession."
Furthermore, many of these founders of science lived at a time when others publicly expressed views quite contrary to Christianity - Hume, Hobbes, Darwin, etc. When Boyle argues against Hobbe's materialism or Kelvin argues against Darwin's assumptions, you don't have a case of "closet atheists."

Formal Proof For The Transcendent Origin Of the Universe - William Lane Craig - video
"The prediction of the standard model that the universe began to exist remains today as secure as ever—indeed, more secure, in light of the Borde-Guth-Vilenkin theorem and that prediction’s corroboration by the repeated and often imaginative attempts to falsify it. The person who believes that the universe began to exist remains solidly and comfortably within mainstream science." - William Lane Craig
Inflationary spacetimes are not past-complete - Borde-Guth-Vilenkin - 2003
Excerpt: inflationary models require physics other than inflation to describe the past boundary of the inflating region of spacetime.
"It is said that an argument is what convinces reasonable men and a proof is what it takes to convince even an unreasonable man. With the proof now in place, cosmologists can long longer hide behind the possibility of a past eternal universe. There is no escape, they have to face the problem of a cosmic beginning."

Explaining Information Transfer in Quantum Teleportation: Armond Duwell †‡ University of Pittsburgh
Excerpt: In contrast to a classical bit, the description of a qubit requires an infinite amount of information. The amount of information is infinite because two real numbers are required in the expansion of the state vector of a two state quantum system (Jozsa 1997, 1) --- Concept 2. is used by Bennett, et al. Recall that they infer that since an infinite amount of information is required to specify a qubit, an infinite amount of information must be transferred to teleport. *******www.cas.umt.edu/phil/faculty/duwell/DuwellPSA2K.pdf

Intelligent Design - The Anthropic Hypothesis
In this Video F-22 Raptor goes vertically up just after take off and you see the thrust vector technology in action. That's some amazing thrust.
It's not until late in our cross-country test bash that the defining differences between the 2008 BMW 135i, 2008 BMW 335i and our long-term 2002 BMW M3 become crucial. We're vectoring along California State Highway 190 approaching Death Valley and climbing to the 4,963-foot summit of Towne Pass, and then the turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-6 engines of these 1 Series and 3 Series BMWs begin to carve out a decided advantage over the normally aspirated mill of the brilliant but aging M3.
The less frenetic acceleration of the current-generation cars becomes their most profound strength on this long, steep climb above 3,000 feet. Fewer gearshifts, more accessible power and a less demanding load on the driver are good when ripping across straight sections of desert road at barely sub-mach velocity.
But only a few hundred miles back, where the road was smooth and winding and the air was far denser, the M3 had been in its element. The question, then, is which is the better machine?
To find out, we drove these three cars on back roads and byways. We headed to the hills and to the desert and then on to the track — the 1.5-mile, 10-turn Radical Loop at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch in Pahrump, Nevada, to be exact. In between, we hit our usual test facility to gather standardized data for acceleration, braking and handling.
We also ran the 2002 BMW M3, 2008 BMW 135i and 2008 BMW 335i through our 28-point testing evaluation, quizzed each participating editor about his personal favorite and weighed the features of each carefully to determine a victor. May the best BMW win.
