Boeing Becomes Sole Owner of Air Taxi Manufacturer Wisk Aero

Posted by in categories: futurism, transportation

As it contends with a slowdown in 737 Max deliveries at present, Boeing also has its eye on the future.

According to reports this week, the aerospace powerhouse is now the sole owner of Wisk Aero, the self-flying air taxi manufacturer it has been backing since 2019, alongside Google co-founder Larry Page’s Kitty Hawk Corp. Kitty Hawk ceased operations last year but continued to invest in the electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft developer.

Now, Boeing has reportedly acquired Kitty Hawk’s shares in Wisk, making it a wholly owned subsidiary, though Wisk CEO Brian Yutko said the air taxi enterprise will retain its independence. Yutko did not disclose the terms of the agreement.

Possible Life-Supporting Planet Found Orbiting Dying Star

Posted by in categories: alien life, futurism

The existence of life on planets orbiting stars akin to our sun doesn’t necessarily require these stars to be exceptionally powerful.

Scientists have uncovered a possible “giant planet” orbiting a dying star, which could potentially support life in the future.

Researchers from University College London made the “startling” discovery while studying a white dwarf, the glowing remnants of a star that exhausted its hydrogen fuel. Located about 117 light-years away, this star, known as WD1054-226, features a ring of planetary debris in its habitable zone, or Goldilocks zone, where temperatures might allow liquid water to exist on a planet’s surface.

Posted by in categories: futurism, policy

‘I don’t see how this pricing is anything based in reality or remotely reasonable.’

Apollo, the popular Reddit app for iOS, could face millions of dollars in fees as a result of Reddit’s new paid API model. According to an update posted by developer.

Reddit announced changes to its API policy in April, which allows the platform to put limits on the number of API requests made by a third-party client like Apollo. But now, we have more details on what exactly this means: Selig says Reddit plans on charging about $12,000 per 50 million requests.
