SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk on his Twitter page named the two main goals that he set for himself and his companies for this year.

First, it intends to carry out the first orbital launch of the giant Starship rocket. And secondly, to make the Tesla FSD autopilot system available to all owners of compatible cars. So far, this system is being tested by a limited circle of users.

There are, of course, many other goals, but these are the two main tasks. It will take an insane amount of work from many super talented people. If anyone can do it, it’s only them. It’s an honor to work with such wonderful people.

He also added that details about the Neuralink chips that will be implanted in people will be announced on October 31, Halloween.

Tesla continues to cut back on its vehicles. Ultrasonic sensors are now being removed from Model 3 and Model Y

Tesla continues to cut back on its vehicles Ultrasonic sensors

Tesla is removing ultrasonic sensors from Model 3 and Model Y vehicles, the next step in CEO Elon Musk’s plan to use only cameras and software to support its advanced driver assistance system and other active safety features.

Starting this month, all Model 3 and Model Y vehicles produced for North America, Europe, the Middle East and Taiwan will no longer be equipped with the 12 ultrasonic sensors that were previously installed on the front and rear bumpers of vehicles. Ultrasonic sensors, which measure distance using ultrasonic waves, are commonly used as parking proximity sensors.

Tesla announced the changes about 17 months after it said it would remove the radar from its vehicles. The decision to ditch radar or ultrasonic sensors runs counter to the approach of the rest of the industry, which is adding rather than removing sensors from its vehicles to support self-driving systems.

Automakers typically use a combination of radar and cameras, and some even a laser rangefinder, to provide adaptive cruise control, which adjusts the vehicle’s speed to the surrounding traffic, as well as allowing you to keep lane and change lanes.

Tesla began its so-called Tesla Vision plan in 2021 when it removed the radar from Model 3 and Model Y vehicles made in North America, followed by the Model S and Model X in 2022. Earlier this year, Tesla expanded it to include into it Model Y and Model 3 in Europe and the Middle East.

Tesla said it will begin removing ultrasonic sensors from Model 3 and Model Y vehicles. They will also be removed from Model S and Model X in 2023.

China successfully tested a hydrogen oxygen engine for the super heavy Long

China has successfully tested a new engine for its Long March 9 super-heavy launch vehicle, which is set to play a key role in lunar exploration and deep space missions.

According to the South China Morning Post, Chinese scientists have managed to overcome technical difficulties in creating a prototype of the YF-79 rocket engine, which is intended for the third stage of the rocket. Experts have successfully carried out three ground tests of it, according to the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC).

Frame from ground tests YF-79

The 25-ton YF-79 is a hydrogen-oxygen engine with an expansion thrust cycle. The first stage of the Long March 9 with boosters will be powered by four YF-130 oxygen-kerosene engines with an additional combustion cycle. A pair of YF-90 hydrogen-oxygen engines is provided for the second stage of the rocket. New YF-79 engines are developed for the third stage, there are four in total.

It is expected that the “Changzheng-9” will be able to launch up to 140 tons of payload into low Earth orbit, from 15 to 50 tons to the Moon, from 12 to 44 tons to Mars.

Maserati GranTurismo Folgore: electric, powerful, very low and outwardly does not betray its electric essence. The car is valued at $170,000

Maserati GranTurismo Folgore electric powerful very low and outwardly does

Maserati has shared details about its first electric coupe called the GranTurismo Folgore.

Maserati GranTurismo Folgore: electric, powerful, very low and outwardly does not betray its electric essence.  The car is valued at $170,000

Folgore, according to the statement of the company itself, will be the lowest electric car in the world – 135 mm.

The machine is equipped with three electric motors with a total capacity of 760 hp. This allows the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 320 km/h. At the same time, some sources talk about 1200 hp, which is also true. The fact is that the power of each electric motor is 300 kW or about 1207 hp, but the installation never works at such a power, giving a maximum of about 760 hp.

The battery capacity is 92.5 kWh, and it can be charged at stations with a capacity of 270 kW. The power reserve is declared equal to 450 km according to the WLTP cycle, but for such powerful electric vehicles this is a very conditional indicator. From the rest, we can note a mass of almost 2270 kg, a trunk of 270 liters, three screens (a 12.2-inch digital instrument panel, a 12.3-inch infotainment system screen and another 8.8-inch screen, but it is not yet clear Where it is located).

For those who still would like to hear the characteristic sound of the engine, Maserati offers a corresponding function, when recordings of its own V8 engines are played from the speakers in accordance with the nature of the movement. In addition, the company focuses on the fact that the design of the car practically does not give out an electric car in it.

It remains to add that for the car they will ask from 170,000 to 215,000 dollars. Sales will begin in the summer of 2023.
