The Chinese authorities should share information about the flight paths of their launch vehicles with other countries in order to avoid possible casualties and material damage. This opinion was expressed by the head of NASA Bill Nelson in connection with the entry into the Earth’s atmosphere of the spent stage of the heavy launch vehicle Long March-5B (CZ-5B), which helped launch the new Mengtian laboratory module to the China orbital station.

Once again, the People’s Republic of China is taking an unjustified risk with the uncontrolled re-entry of a Long March-5B rocket stage. They are [КНР] did not share specific trajectory information needed to predict impact areas [обломков ракеты] and risk reduction“, the head of the department said in a statement.

According to the head of NASA,this is the fourth uncontrolled entry [в атмосферу] PRC missiles since May 2020, each of these entrances was the largest in the past 30 years“. “It is essential that all space-faring nations be responsible and open in their space activities and follow established best practices, especially in the event of uncontrolled re-entry of large pieces of rocket body debris, debris that could well lead to severe damage or loss of life.‘ Nelson concluded.

The uncontrolled entry of a Chinese rocket into the atmosphere forced the temporary closure of the airspace of several Spanish airports on Friday, the General Directorate of Civil Protection of Catalonia said. The authorities of the kingdom did not report any incidents in this regard.

The first Tesla trucks with megawatt charging have been delivered

Tesla made the first deliveries of its Semi truck to customers on Thursday evening, five years after the unveiling. The online presentation showed trucks adorned with the liveries of Pepsi and Frito-Lay, a snack food subsidiary of PepsiCo.

Tesla Semi was shown as a prototype in 2017. Then Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced that production would begin in 2019. At the same time, during today’s presentation, Musk did not say how many trucks were delivered by PepsiCo and how many cars were produced in total.

The all-electric truck features an unusual design in which the driver sits in the center of the cab rather than on the side. Tesla boasts about the truck’s power, saying it accelerates much faster, even when fully loaded, than traditional diesel-powered trucks. During the presentation, a video was shown showing how a fully loaded Tesla Semi accelerates up a steep hill and overtakes other trucks.

Because the Tesla Semi doesn’t have a multi-speed transmission like diesel trucks, it’s also much easier to drive. According to Musk, the truck can travel 800 km on a single charge. It has three electric motors, one of which drives the truck most of the time, while the other two are used primarily for acceleration and hard traction. According to the Tesla leader, the truck can pull up to 37 tons.

The trucks were announced to support megawatt ultra-fast chargers, however it was not announced how long it would take to recharge the truck. These chargers will also be available for use by Cybertruck drivers when the Tesla pickup goes on sale, Musk said.
