Boeing has published a short footage on the global network where we can see a reusable mini-shuttle located at a research and outer space facility.

While in orbit, the cargo bay doors open and the panel system unfolds.

Sony discovers all cards - there are Polish prices and release dates. Any surprise?

During yesterday's Sony network conference, we got to know not only new games aimed at PlayStation 5, but also the missing pieces of the puzzle, i.e. prices and the release date of the new console. According to earlier reports, the Japanese manufacturer has prepared two versions of its console, i.e. the classic with a drive and the Digital Edition without a drive, which were priced at $ 499 and $ 399, respectively. And although the price of the traditional model looks the same as in the case of the Xbox Series X, Polish prices differ slightly and Sony has used a less attractive conversion rate, which translates into PLN 2299 and PLN 1849, respectively. It should be noted, however, that unlike the Xboxes, the drive or its absence is the only difference between consoles.

The world's first bionic 'eye' enters human testing

Work on creating a fully functioning bionic eye is currently underway in many institutions around the world (we know of at least 12!), Because restoring eyesight to blind people is high on the list of scientific priorities. Interestingly, some of them have even implanted patients with appropriate devices, but a lot depends on the cause of the loss of vision and the specific technology. In the case of Australia's Monash University, we are talking about a comprehensive bionic vision system designed for people with damaged optic nerves because it works by bypassing the damage that blocks the transmission of key signals that normally travel between the retina and the brain's visual center.

Elon Musk: The sun can power an entire civilization. We're going to build a Dyson sphere

Elon Musk said we should appreciate our day star more because it is a slow fusion reactor from which we can draw a virtually unlimited amount of energy. The sun can easily satisfy the energy needs of all mankind, and even dozens of such civilizations, because every second it converts 4 million tons of its matter into pure energy.

This is how the amazing crab mode works in the new electric Hummer

The Hummer EV will accelerate to a hundred in just over 3 seconds and will accelerate to 200 km / h. However, the most important aspect for off-road enthusiasts is the driveability of this monster. The company says they are amazing. Interestingly, Hummer is to leave behind its competition in the form of the Cybertruck from Tesla.

The UK is starting with vaccine trials that will intentionally infect willing CoVID-19

... tests with the use of deliberate infection of those willing to verify the effectiveness of the action - this is a controversial method that in most cases is not approved, but it seems that this time it will be different. Scientists from the UK have informed that they will start such a program in January next year and will initially only invite young and healthy volunteers to participate in it to verify how small doses of the virus lead to the acute course of the disease. As we well know, under normal conditions, vaccine production takes a very long time and only at the last stage larger groups are vaccinated to verify the effectiveness - only in a very specific way, because the vaccinated people simply return to normal life and are monitored for many months, and then the number of infections is compared between this group and the unvaccinated placebo group.
