The time has come to come up with a wheel a new look at the world.

The wheel that we use up to this point was invented in the Bronze Age, at the end of the 5th millennium BC. Later, gearbox engines and other mechanical devices were added to the wheels.
The speeds and revolutions of the rotating elements from that moment have changed many times, but the approach itself has remained at the level of the end of the millennium BC.
What is very interesting, all these spinning objects, flywheel engines and even with ultramodern and innovative products like electric vehicles have one flaw
Which remained unnoticed by anyone and this is the gyroscopic effect of any untwisted object. If you don’t pull the owl for a very long time on the globe, then we can say that all units that have a rotation axis in the space where the vehicle turns, losses occur in the form of accumulated kinetic energy (minus efficiency) and the wear of shaft bearings and other rubbing ones also increases elements of aggregates.
Most importantly, no technical revolutions are required to eliminate this situation.
It is necessary to transfer the axis of rotation to the plane of the smallest change in position in space.
If you describe this clearly, then the engine in a car or motorcycle needs to be installed vertically upright with a shaft. As a result of this change, all turns when the vehicle is moving will no longer have such a strong effect on the untwisted engine, since the axis of rotation will not change its position in space.

Sakharov’s idea, which used a 100-kiloton nuclear charge to create a wave that could destroy coastal infrastructure. It was embodied in the form of unmanned underwater vehicles Poseidon "Status-6" entering the arsenal of the Russian army. Poseidon in the singular having these characteristics can already be called a weapon of retaliation or, as the Pentagon says, a weapon carrying a “serious strategic threat” for coastal military installations, ports, and aircraft carrier groups.
When using Poseidon not as a single charge, but as a chess composition or, more simply, in the form of a pack, where three explosions will take place first, and behind the descent of the waves towards the alleged enemy, two will explode to spur the wave and then the final one.
This flock of Poseidons will create Megatsunami capable of affecting not only the coastline, but also go much further where salt water could only be seen in a bottle of mineral water.

SpaceX has moved its plans for the first ever commercial launch using the Falcon Heavy rocket to Wednesday, 10 April at the earliest, provided the weather improves.

The Falcon Heavy will carry the Arabsat-6A satellite owned by Arabsat and the King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology. The launch will be SpaceX's fourth, and the first of two such Falcon Heavy launches in 2019.

While the launch was initially planned for 9 April, weather on the day wasn't conducive for the launch, which has now been moved to 10 April at 10.35 pm GMT (11 April 4.05 am IST).

"Now targeting Falcon Heavy launch of Arabsat-6A on Wednesday, April 10 – weather forecast improves to 80% favorable," SpaceX tweeted in an update on 9 April.

The launch will take place from the historic Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Spaceflight Centre. Once it begins, the launch window will remain open for roughly 2 hours.

Arabsat-6A

Falcon Heavy's payload is the 6,000-kilogram Arabsat-6A communications satellite for Saudi Arabian telecom giant Arabsat. It will be the Falcon Heavy rocket's second flight, and the first commercial one, after the test in February 2018.

Along with the Hellas Sat-4/SaudiGeoSat-1, the Arabsat-6A satellite under the Arabsat-6G program is the most advanced commercial communications satellites ever built by space technology company Lockheed Martin. It is based on an updated A2100 bus and uses a brand new solar panel technology.

Positioned in the geostationary orbit, Arabsat-6A is expected to last 15 years, provide television, internet, telephone, and secure communication services to the Middle East, Africa and Europe, according to Space.com.

The Falcon Heavy is the most powerful rocket in the world today. With three first-stage boosters akin to SpaceX's Falcon 9 rockets, the Falcon Heavy boosters, too, are designed to fly back to Earth and be reusable.

 

 

The Falcon Heavy's twin boosters made a simultaneous landing on pads at Cape Canaveral successfully during the test flight last year. The core booster wasn't as successful, missing its landing on the 'Of course, I still love you!' drone ship in the Atlantic by a very short distance.

A live stream of the launch will be available half an hour before liftoff on SpaceX's YouTube page.

Today, it’s not an easy task to find a person who lives completely out of touch with the modern world. Information inevitably reaches us in one way or another, whether it’s television, newspapers, radio, the Internet or word of mouth. Above all else, it’s almost impossible to avoid news about recent man-made disasters.
Despite the development of modern technology, alarm and security systems, ships continue to collide with each other, submarines sink, planes crash, trains go off the rails, cars go out of control and turn over. This is the harsh truth that can’t be denied.
Obviously, most of these disasters happen due to human error or the so-called ‘human factor’. However, the fact is that the operation of any vehicle is inevitably associated with two impeding factors: inertia and mass. Some disasters could’ve been completely avoided if the pilot or driver had the right tool to quickly stop the vehicle or change its path of motion to avoid the crash.
Just imagine, that instead of crashing into a bridge, beach or another ship, it would’ve been possible to triple the turning rate of the ship and avoid the disaster by doing so, or at least minimize the damage taken. This is particularly important for huge ocean liners. After all, these small floating cities carry the most expensive cargo in the world, namely human lives.

Happy to inform you, that now there is such a tool!
Through joint efforts of the Russian and German engineers, we have developed a unique system, now known as “Gecsotor”. The system is aimed at improving the stability of heavy objects with a large inertial mass. The system has already made waves in the global scientific and technological community.
What are the advantages of the “Gecsotor” system?
An innovative control system;
Compatibility with both large objects and mechanisms, and smaller vehicles, such as motorcycles;
Ability to easily update old vehicle fleets, such as aircraft fleets, in order to achieve safer operation of such vehicles.
For road transport:
Improvement of road-holding ability for trucks and light motor vehicles;
Better vehicle handling during turns;
No turn-overs or skidding on icy roads.
For the water and underwater transports:
Tilting and turbulence decrease during storms;
Exclusion of the possibility of turn-over;
Increased maneuverability during the emergency;
Ability to navigate in ports without the help of towers.
For aircraft:
High flight safety in harsh climatic conditions;
Increased stability during takeoff and landing, decreased turbulence;
Lower airstrip length requirements;
Exclusion of the possibility of turn-over in any weather patterns;
Increased stability and torque compensation during aircraft nosing-up, tilting, and other emergency conditions.
On top of that, the “Gecsotor” system allows to change the path of motion without the use of the steering wheel, ailerons, engines with adjustable thrust vector and is a perfect choice for hypersonic flight.
The system drastically increases the reliability of aircraft with vertical takeoff and landing: convertiplanes, helicopters, drones;
Addition of the “Gecsotor” system to UAVs would provide the means to develop completely new devices, capable of withstanding seemingly impossible load and acceleration while being able to instantly change the path of motion.
The system has a wide range of applications in the space industry:
Optimization of satellite orbital positions;
Increased maneuverability of satellite stations;
Better launch vehicle control during the penetration of dense atmosphere layers;
Ability to lock the position of the object during coupling;
Giving space debris the desired direction of movement to burn it in the atmosphere;
Management and stabilization of used launch-vehicle stages or reusable launch-vehicles without using rocket fuel.
The invention is based on the interaction of the power systems and the vehicle body by means of storage, preservation, and subsequent use of the kinetic energy of the coupled flywheels in combination with the gyroscopic action. The system itself acts as a lever that allows the pilot to perform the necessary actions: rotation, locking position, and torque compensation regardless of environmental conditions and the coordinate system used.
The “Gecsotor” system opens up new ways to design and manufacture modern aircraft, road and water transport, as well as spacecraft. The high standards of safety and reliability of the “Gecsotor” system will significantly reduce the number of emergencies and save thousands of lives!

The Event Horizon Telescope, a network of telescopes on mission to observe supermassive black holes at the centres of galaxies, is set to release its first results in a public press conference next week.

We don’t know what the results will be—but they have the potential to be utterly worldview-changing.

“The event horizon of black holes represent the limits of our knowledge,” Priyamvada Natarajan, astronomy and physics professor at Yale University, told Gizmodo by phone this week. “For me, [the Event Horizon Telescope] is almost a precise piece of what the human mind is capable of. I’m having an emotionally excited reaction to all of this.”

Black holes are objects so compact and dense that they contain a region in their gravitational field, their event horizon, beyond which space is so warped that light cannot escape. We have tons of evidence that black holes exist, from bursts of radiation emitted from galactic centres to ripples through spacetime called gravitational waves. But we’ve never seen one up close.

That’s the goal of the Event Horizon Telescope, which operates under a principle called very long baseline interferometry, or VLBI. The “telescope” is actually a collaboration of telescopes around the world, from the United States to Chile to the South Pole, which all observe the same distant object at the same time. The data is brought together at a central location and then decoded to produce higher-resolution images than would be possible with a single telescope. It’s like turning the entire Earth into one large telescope. The resolution increase is mind boggling. Hopefully, the telescope will be able to resolve the center of the galaxy, a region over 25,000 light-years away that is only about the size of Mercury’s orbit around the Sun.

The targets of the telescope’s observing runs thus far have been Sagittarius A*, a radio wave-emitting region of our galaxy that looks a whole lot like a supermassive black hole with a mass 4 million times that of the Sun, as well as the center of the galaxy M87, where there is presumably another supermassive black hole, this one around 7 billion times the mass of the Sun and spewing a high-energy jet of matter.

This week, the National Science Foundation announced that it and the EHT collaboration would hold a press conference in Washington D.C., with simultaneous press conferences in Brussels, Santiago, Shanghai, Taipei, and Tokyo, to announce “a groundbreaking result.” Unfortunately, we don’t know what this result will be—and I’d otherwise prefer not to feed into the hype—but if the result is what we hope it is, it will be incredible, possibly showing the shadow that the black hole creates against the backdrop of the cosmos. It would become one of the most important images in scientific history.

For a taste of what I’m talking about, last year, Avery Broderick, associate professor at the University of Waterloo, sent us a a simulation of what a black hole observed by the EHT might look like:

If we can see the shadow, “that would be absolutely jaw-dropping,” Grant Tremblay, astrophysicist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics who was on a committee that approved an EHT upgrade, told Gizmodo by phone. “If we see a shadow the way we think it should, that’s going to be really exciting, a confirmation that although we don’t know how nature works, we’re on the right track.”

But we don’t know what it’s going to show, yet. If it shows something different from astronomers’ expectations, that would be exciting too. Whatever the result, scientists are excited for all of the questions and potential lines of research that will come out of the data release.

I’m trying to treat this all with cautious optimism, since, again, we don’t know what kind of images we’ll see next week. But when scientists call big, internationally broadcast press conferences like this, it’s usually because they have a big result.
