Japan Is Designing An Invisible Train To Be Launched By 2018

Posted by in categories: innovation, transportation

This extraordinary train is designed by train Kazuyo Sejima, who was recently awarded Pritzker Prize, which is given as a Nobel Prize of architecture. Sejima is an architect from a Japanese company Sanaa. He claimed that without a doubt the train will be not totally unseen but it will be super-reflective. It seems to be partially invisible because of its pure mirrored shell. This task was very challenging for the architects as well as for the engineers. After this successful mission, they have concluded that this design can be put on to the active trains as well.

Sejima has got authorization from the Seibu Railway Co, that for celebrating its 100th anniversary of Red Arrow express commuter train, they have to remodel the outer surface and inside of it. The invisible train is likely to be launched in 2018 and this express will travel over 178 km (111 miles) all over Japan. In an interview held last week, Sejima said “The limited express travels will pass through beautiful panorama like mountains of Chichibu. This will be a great reason for the passengers to travel on this train.”

The whole news about the partially invisible train is not revealed by the inventors but Dezeen magazine has published that its outer surface will have semi-transparent and mirrored panels, and its boxy shape created into a silver bullet. We already came through extraordinary bullet train designed by Japan and now this semi-transparent train seems really exciting. This will be the latest invention which we have not come through till now.

French President Macron launches tech visa to make France a ‘country of unicorns’

Posted by in category: government

France launched a technology visa on Thursday which aims to attract international talent, with newly-elected President Emmanuel Macron talking about the need to strip out regulation to become a “country of unicorns”.

Speaking at the Viva Tech conference in Paris, France, Macron outlined how his government would slash complex regulation, make it easier for foreign talent to work, and support start-ups with money, in order to create world-leading companies.

The visa is open to start-up founders, employees and investors and is a fast-track procedure to obtain a residence permit in France known as the “Talent Passport”. It’s valid for four years and extended to immediate family members.

A NASA rocket is going to blast colored clouds into space — here’s how to see them

Posted by in category: space

Sat 17 June…NASA rocket to blast colored clouds into space…similar to our 2017 SpaceApps Groups Idea :…er/project

  • NASA is launching a rocket that will create colorful clouds in space.
  • The rocket launch and clouds may be visible as far away as New York City.
  • Such clouds will eventually be used to probe two big holes in Earth’s magnetic shield, called cusps.
  • The launch will be live-streamed by NASA Wallops Flight Facility.

NASA is about to launch a rocket that will puff out highly visible clouds of red and blue-green vapor into space.

The rocket was supposed to launch on May 31, but bad weather and poor visibility pushed the mission back to Saturday, June 17, with a liftoff time between 9:05 p.m. and 9:20 p.m. EDT.

LEAF Panel: How to Promote Longevity? ft. Drs. Aubrey de Grey, Alexandra Stolzing, Oliver Medvedik

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

On the 9th of June we teamed up with the Major Mouse Testing Program (MMTP) for a live stream longevity panel on the MMTP Facebook page. The panel included Dr. Alexandra Stolzing, Dr. Aubrey de Grey, Dr. Oliver Medvedik, MMTP coordinators Steve Hill and Elena Milova, President Keith Comito, and one of the most active contributors Alen Akhabaev. The event was one of the rewards from the MMTP campaign launched on last year.

During the first section the panelists discuss the science and progress in the field, touching upon senescent cell therapy with senolytics, its progress and limitations, stem cells therapies and other promising interventions to slow down and potentially reverse age-related damage to health.
