In world first, Cuba starts coronavirus vaccinations for toddlers

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, habitats, internet

Cuba on Monday became the first country in the world to vaccinate children from the age of two against Covid-19, using home-grown jabs not recognised by the World Health Organization. The communist island of 11.2 million people aims to inoculate all its children before reopening schools that have been closed for the most part since March 2020. The new school year started on Monday, but from home via television programmes, as most Cuban homes do not have internet access.

Elon Musk says Starlink will transfer data close to speed of light

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, internet, satellites, sustainability

Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX just confirmed that Starlink will transfer data close to speed of light. According to Gizmochina, the speed will be close to 97% speed of light.

Starlink is a constellation of thousands satellites aiming to deliver high-speed internet to consumers anywhere on the planet. While the Starlink service is still in beta, the company has over 100,000 users in 14 countries so far, with over half a million orders or refundable deposits placed by potential customers.

As of today there are 1,700 satellites in orbit. SpaceX intends to provide satellite internet connectivity to underserved areas of the planet, as well as provide competitively priced service in more urbanized areas. The company has stated that the positive cash flow from selling satellite internet services would be necessary to fund their Mars plans.

NEOM is Saudi Arabia’s tentpole project in their Vision2030initiative to help move the Kingdom away from an oil-based economy and rely more on technology and tourism. It has some ambitious goals, like being 100% sustainable, moving all transport underground, and even glowing beaches. But the most noticeable thing about the project is the fact that the city will lie on a 100-mile line serviced by a hyperloop-style high speed train system.

SpaceX ends launch hiatus with cargo Dragon mission

Posted by in categories: internet, satellites

WASHINGTON — SpaceX performed its first Falcon 9 launch in two months Aug. 29 sending a cargo Dragon spacecraft to the International Space Station.

The Falcon 9 lifted off from Launch Complex 39A at the Kennedy Space Center at 3:14 a.m. Eastern after a one-day delay because of weather. The Dragon spacecraft separated from the rocket’s upper stage about 12 minutes after liftoff and is scheduled to dock with the station at about 11 a.m. Eastern Aug. 30 for an approximately one-month stay.

The launch was the first for a Falcon 9 since the June 30 launch of the Transporter-2 rideshare mission, the longest pause since a three-month gap between launches from August to November 2019. One reason for the hiatus was a delay in Starlink launches to equip those satellites with laser inter-satellite links; the majority of the Falcon 9 launches this year have been Starlink missions.

UIH Trains 40 Aspiring Developers

Posted by in categories: economics, internet, robotics/AI, virtual reality

Towards raising young developers across the Urhobo Nation, the Urhobo Innovation Hub has completed the training of 40 youths on Website design, Internet of Things (IOT), Robotics and Virtual Reality.

The boot camp training, which drew its participants from Urhobo youths within the age bracket of 13–38 years old, held at the Michael and Cecilia Ibru University, Agbaro-Otor, Delta State.

The Hub is a brainchild of the Urhobo Economic and Investment Summit (Ekpobaro) and was initiated to raise young entrepreneurs of Urhobo extraction who will key into the reality of the new normal and raise seasoned developers to make Urhobo Nation proud.

LG sets new record for 6G transmission of data at 100 meters

Posted by in categories: energy, internet

A team of researchers at Korea’s LG Electronics, working with a group at Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, has successfully sent data 100 meters over a 6G signal. Officials at LG have posted details of their test of the next step wireless transmission technology on their company news page.

As 5G networks for cellular service have slowly made their way around the globe, engineers at multiple have been hard at work on next-generation 6G . Moving to the new technology is expected to push data transmission speeds to 50 times faster than 5G. It is also expected to cut latency to just 10% that of 5G, making conversations sound more natural. And the new standard is also expected to improve the accuracy of the data sent. Together, these improvements could drive a wave of new “Internet of Everything” development, with new devices aimed at both the home and workplace.

Scientists have long recognized that achieving the next step in transmission technology will be more difficult than those that came before due to a major problem with 6G signaling; it is short-range due to loss of power as it is transmitted. For this reason, the global standards body for data communications has set its commercialization date for 2,025 while most in the field do not expect actual sales to begin until2029or later.

Elon Musk: ‘Bezos retired in order to pursue a full-time job filing lawsuits against SpaceX’

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, government, internet, satellites

Can this be true?


Elon Musk has criticized fellow centibillionaire and space cowboy Jeff Bezos for filing lawsuits against the former’s aerospace company SpaceX.

Earlier this month, Bezos’ space firm Blue Origin sued NASA after it lost a critical government contract to put astronauts on the Moon to SpaceX. This has had the effect of delaying SpaceX’s own work on the project. And now, this week, Amazon has urged the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to dismiss newly-submitted plans by SpaceX to launch another cluster of satellites to power its satellite internet service Starlink.
