China has created a prototype helicopter for flights on Mars

Published

on

Yesterday, the website of the National Center for Space Sciences (NSSC) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences published a report that on August 20, several developments in the field of space exploration, carried out under the NSSC’s “incubator of new ideas” program, passed the final acceptance. Among them is a prototype aircraft for an expedition to Mars.

Externally, the prototype is similar to the Ingenuity helicopter developed by NASA. However, this is quite expected, because the devices are designed for flights in the same environment and the developers had to take into account almost the same restrictions.

The NSSC said in a press release that the helicopter could be a tool for future Mars exploration, but there are no details in the text.

Recall that in May, the first Chinese rover arrived on Mars, where by that time the American Ingenuity helicopter had already made its first flight, delivered to the Red Planet along with the Perseverance rover in February.

Geely founder sets up a smartphone manufacturing venture

Published

on

Chinese carmaker Geely, which owns Volvo, has announced that its chairman Eric Li, also known as Li Shufu, is setting up a new company that will make premium smartphones.

Founder Zhejiang Geely Holding’s new venture will aim to launch its first smartphone by 2023 and sell 3 million units in the first year.

Lee had previously made futuristic bets on ventures such as flying cars and helicopter taxis. In a smartphone market that is no longer growing in China, the new company will have to compete with Apple, Xiaomi and other established manufacturers.

Notably, smartphone makers are looking to enter the electric vehicle market, realizing that the smartphone boom is coming to an end. However, Geely is the first car manufacturer to try to move in the opposite direction.

The company said in a statement to Reuters that the new company will be called Hubei Xingji Shidai Technology Co Ltd and that it has already signed an agreement with the Wuhan Economic and Technological Development Zone to establish a headquarters in the central city of Wuhan. Li owns 55% of Xingji Shidai. The project will be financed with an investment of $ 1.55 billion.

MSI has unveiled the MEG CoreLiquid S series of liquid cooling systems developed in collaboration with Asetek. The series includes two models with aluminum radiators 280 mm and 360 mm long. The radiators are equipped with low-noise MSI MEG Silent Gale fans that turn on only when needed, and a 2.4-inch IPS display is built into the pump cover. The 7th generation Asetek pump features improved leakage resistance and increased durability.

The blades of the aforementioned fans are made of Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP), a dense plastic with a low coefficient of thermal expansion. Their shape ensures maximum airflow. The rotor is supported by a hydrodynamic bearing to reduce noise and increase service life. Anti-vibration bushings are pressed in the corners of the fan frame. The rotation speed is adjustable in the range of 0-2000 rpm. The maximum speed corresponds to a flow of 95.54 m3/ h and a noise level of 22.7 dBA.
