OneWeb limits the size of the future constellation of satellites

This post was originally published on this site

OneWeb says the size of a planned next-generation satellite constellation initially expected to have about 48,000 satellites is dramatically diminishing. “OneWeb requested approval to change a proposal filed in May proposing to deploy 47,844 satellites for its “Stage Two” constellation in a January 12 filing with Federal Communications Commission. The organization is considering a system of 6,372 satellites instead.

In a January 13 report, the revised constellation, OneWeb stated, “shows the determination and vision” of its current owners, the British government, as well as Indian telecommunications company Bharti Global, for “launching a cost-effective, accountable and innovative satellite network

This post was originally published on this site

As we know, 2020 was a fearful and horrible year due to the uncertainties caused by the coronavirus pandemic. However, things were different for the space enthusiasts since they gave only promising news amid the hardship time. For instance, SpaceX took astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS) two times. Also, NASA launched a rover to Mars and obtained a sample from an asteroid that was 200 million miles away. 2021 is likely to be an outstanding year full of good news. The following are some of the things that are likely to happen in 2021:

A collaboration in Renewables between Enel Green Power and Qatar Investment Authority

This post was originally published on this site

From now on, the Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) will be part of every renewable project developed by ENEL Green Power in Sub-Saharan Africa. That comes after the two get into an agreement to start financing, building, and operating the projects jointly in the future. The first phase will be about capacities around 800 MW. The total number of projects comprises two in operation and the other two under construction. Three are in South Africa, whereas one is in Zambia. The agreement means that QIA will acquire half of Enel Green Power’s stake in all of the projects.

What is the origin of the primordial black holes in the solar system?

This post was originally published on this site

The origin of giant primordial black holes has remained a mystery for quite a long time. Not even astronomers seem to understand anything about them. That’s understandable because black holes have existed for quite a long time as far as the cosmological record is concerned. Therefore, unless new physics is discovered, the existing one lacks information to explain how they came into appearance.

However, there is an exciting research proposal about their origin. It states that the stars are not the sources of the first black holes. On the contrary, they originate from clumps of gravitinos, particles that are super-hypothetical

The 2021 Mustang Mach-E

This post was originally published on this site

Just like other automakers developing electric vehicles, Ford is not left behind. It is increasing its multi-billion-dollar electric models with its recent electric SUV: The 2021 Mustang Mach-E. Mach-E is a fantastic beast that meets all the SUV standards. It has a tumbling roofline and curvaceous rear fenders similar to any sporty SUVs or Jaguar F-Pace. However, it is fair to say that Mach-E possesses minimal characteristics of Mustang, that is, the tail lamps and a galloping pony badge.

Mach-E is a clear indication of how far electric vehicles have come. The Ford is technically advanced, spooky, quiet, lighting

Barry Cinnamon is the Chief executive of the Cinnamon Energy Systems in California. When summarizing 2020, he said that “This was the year of nonstop horror, a year when we kept insisting that things could not get any worse, and it did. It was the year in which we were able to afford toilet paper for our few moments of real, unadulterated happiness.” Here are the 2021 predictions for the solar as well as storage as per Cinnamon Energy Systems in

The rapid shift to solar power in Wisconsin

This post was originally published on this site

As an increasing number of utilities created targets to go carbon-free by the year 2050, Wisconsin is experiencing a steady conversion to solar power. The expenditure comes given the threats raised by the pandemic of COVID-19. According to Solar Energy Industries Association estimates, new solar installations nationally are projected to rise 43% from 2019 to a peak of 19 gigawatts of power installed in the year 2020. Solar has accounted for 43% of all added ability to produce new power this year.

As per Michael Vickerman, policy analyst for the RENEW Wisconsin, the state now has Twenty solar farms under active construction that will produce over 2.2 gigawatts

The Space Development Agency again gave SpaceX a $149 million deal after a set of contract complaints, as well as L3Harris a $193.5 million deal to construct four spacecraft each to monitor and map ballistic as well as hypersonic missiles. The contracts were initially awarded to both firms on October 5. Still, after rivals Airbus and Raytheon lodged complaints with the Government Accountability Office opposing the awards, work had to be suspended. The Space Development Corporation decided to re-evaluate vendor bids to address the protests. The GAO rejected Airbus’ November 30 complaint. Two further objections were filed by Raytheon as well as

The rationale for electric cars in economic and environmental terms

This post was originally published on this site

Many energy sources are used to produce electricity, like fossil fuels such as natural gas as well as coal, nuclear power, and a range of renewable energy like solar, solar, hydropower, and biomass. That being said, for the transportation industry, electricity comes mostly from crude oil. In the year 2019, 91 percent of transportation industry power came from the crude oil, with the rest of the remaining coming from the compressed natural gas (CNG) as well as ethanol. The electric vehicle (EV) is composed of 1 percent of the two new transport systems, and the fuel cell vehicle (FCV) which is powered by hydrogen was well
