One ripping panel is fitted, which is situated on the top of the envelope towards the nose.
"British Airships, Past, Present, and Future" by George Whale
The captain got one panel ripped too soon and the others not soon enough.
"The War in the Air" by Herbert George Wells
The door tottered inward from the top, ripping, tearing, smashing hinges, panels, and jamb.

In news:

I use a scrap board to test the setting and adjust the rip fence so the beveled edge of the panel ends up slightly less than 1/4 in.

In science:

The middle panel shows that even though dark energy dominates at large redshifts for the (Big Rip, Phantom) kind of dark energy models (blue line), it does not accelerate the universe at early times.
Parameters and pitfalls in dark energy models with time varying equation of state
We notice that the dark energy density decays with redshift, except for the model ‘Big Rip’, which had significant early dark energy (cf lower panel Fig. 1).
Parameters and pitfalls in dark energy models with time varying equation of state
It is interesting to note that even for the ‘Big Rip’ where dark energy density is significant at early times, the universe is decelerating before a redshift of 2 because its EoS (Blue solid curve in the upper panel of Fig. 1) keeps increasing.
