Chinese Tesla break down, and the manufacturer blames ... the drivers and the road

Tesla cars are already so popular in some parts of the world, such as China, that although the company even has its local factory, ie Shanghai Gigafactory, which produces the Model 3s, it still has to export many units from the United States to this market. The Model S and Model X have long been brought to the Middle Kingdom in this way, but it seems that they are not models intended for local roads, because many of them have failed. So the Chinese forced Tesla to call for inspection nearly 30,000 units, produced between September 17, 2013 and January 15, 2018, due to potentially defective front and rear suspensions.

See how the autonomous Roborace crashed during a race on the track

In spring this year, this vehicle became the fastest autonomous vehicle in the world. The Robocar accelerated at the Elvington Airfield track in Great Britain to a dizzying speed of 281 km / h. He entered this historic feat in the Guinness Book of World Records. Roborace engineers have yet to say the last word.

6G network already in space. China launched the first satellite to succeed 5G

A few days ago, a satellite called Star Era-12 was in orbit. He was carried there by the Long March 6 rocket from the Taiyuan space facility. Scientists from the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China are behind the entire project. On board the satellite are test devices that will be used to conduct the first experiments with the network of the future.

Not only the Earth, but the entire universe is experiencing its "global warming"

Astronomers at Ohio State University have conducted extensive studies of various parts of the deep space. Their aim was to find out how the temperature of gas clouds has changed over the years. The research results surprised the scientists a lot and made them think.

The Dragon-2 capsule took four astronauts into orbit. This is a historic event

Originally, the launch was supposed to take place on November 15, but it was postponed by 24 hours due to unfavorable weather in the waters of the Atlantic Ocean. The SpaceX barge, Just Read The Instruction, had problems reaching the designated location where the first Falcon-9 rocket would try to land on it. We now know that this maneuver has been successfully completed.

See in the film the moment of the collapse of the famous Arecibo radio telescope

We remind you that the disaster occurred last Tuesday. Then a sad entry appeared on the Twitter profile of the American National Science Foundation (NSF), to which the Arecibo Observatory belongs. A 900-ton receiver platform, which hung 150 meters on it, fell onto the radio telescope's dish. The canopy was seriously damaged. Scientists have announced that the facility will not be rebuilt.

The new electrolysis device will allow the extraction of hydrogen and oxygen from the salt water of Mars

Consequently, engineers at Washington University in St. Louis decided to develop a new electrolysis device that would turn Martian salt water into oxygen for breathing and hydrogen for propulsion. Because, as many of us remember from school, electrolysis of water is the process of decomposing a water molecule under the influence of an electric current into hydrogen and oxygen, which can then be used for other purposes. Therefore, it should be a solution that allows astronauts on site to obtain oxygen for breathing and hydrogen fuel at the same time, but ... this solution does not work very well with salt water, which is exactly what is found on Mars.

A hacker broke into the settings of Tesla's autonomous vehicles and revealed interesting features

Well known to all Tesla fans, the hacker named Green decided to upload on his Twitter profile screenshots of his hacking into the internal settings of the Tesla autonomous system developer FSD (Full Self Drive).

Brand fans and potential customers have a completely different opinion.

These are the global "garbage collectors". See the ranking of companies that produce the most waste

Unfortunately, the leaders of the ranking remain unchanged this year. The first places are: Coca-Cola, Pepsico, Nestle and Unilever. It is the products of these concerns that most often do not end up in the bin, but end up wherever they can. In 2020, volunteers collected a total of 346,494 pieces of plastic packaging in 55 countries around the world.

The new hypercars accelerate to 530 km / h. Braking looks like a volcanic eruption

Bugatti recently announced that it has created the world's first solid piece of titanium brake caliper using a 3D printer. Now we can see how the disc and caliper heat up when braking from just 380 km / h. We are just writing because the 1750 hp SSC Tuatara braking system must withstand speeds of over 500 km / h.

We know when Virgin Orbit will launch a rocket from the plane. NASA missions will be on board

The first presentation took place in May 2020 at Edwards Air Force Base in California. Virgin Orbit has announced that the take-off, flight and landing of the Boeing 747 Cosmic Girl and the launch of the rocket suspended from the plane were successful. Unfortunately, her flight was unsuccessful. The explosion occurred shortly after separation and starting the engine. It was a partial success for the company and its employees. The team had to work on their technology a little more.
