During the Czech Space Week, Xtend Design unveiled the Luniaq lunar rover, inspired by the Skoda Enyaq.
This electric rover will be able to carry up to four astronauts. Luniaq will be built on the NASA MMSEV (Multi-Mission Space Exploration Vehicle) platform, which has already been used to build other lunar rovers.
The Luniaq will receive large windows that allow it to assess the situation with a 180-degree viewing angle. Moreover, the windows are made not of glass, but of transparent aluminum, which is also more resistant to micrometeorites than glass. Layers of polyethylene add extra protection against radiation, and a lower front window allows drivers to view the moon’s surface directly in front of the vehicle.
The Luniaq will be equipped with stereoscopic cameras to scan the area and acquire 3D images, allowing for remote control of the vehicle. Michelin Tweel technology will be used to make large soft wheels.
Sustainable development can enable us to keep moving forward and expand the biosphere to other places in space. We would like to inspire people on how we could continue to progressively develop our technologies and one day live and travel in places other than Earth. Humanity is technically advanced enough that it becomes just a matter of our motivation and funding. A new era of electric mobility could continue throughout the solar system and beyond.

Mozilla is developing a Firefox browser for iOS that violates Apple’s requirements
Mozilla is working on a Firefox browser for iOS that will be based on the Gecko engine rather than the traditional WebKit platform. This is similar to the Google project, where they develop their Chromium browser based on Blink.

The browser code was found in the Mozilla GitHub repository, but it is not in the App Store, because such a browser violates the rules of the store. Apple forbids browsers from using any engines other than WebKit.
In a comment to the media, a Mozilla spokesperson said the company is following Apple’s policy and is only doing research to understand the technical issues for Gecko browsers on iOS if that policy changes.
“We hope that the day will come when people can freely decide to use the browser of their choice, including the ability to choose the engine that underlies it,” the company said.
Note that the Google developers also stated that their application is only an “experimental prototype that is being created in order to understand some aspects of performance on iOS.”
Journalists, on the other hand, believe that Apple may begin preparations for changing the rules of the store, which is why the companies began working on new versions of browsers. Details about this can be told at the WWDC conference in early summer.
Under lock and key: Google Chrome will ask for biometrics to access the password manager
Google has released an important security update for its Chrome browser.
Google Password Manager is pretty versatile as it allows you to sync all your saved passwords across mobile and desktop devices. Until now, the Chrome desktop browser used PINs and passwords to authenticate users before exposing stored data.
Now, if your computer (Windows and macOS) has an external or built-in biometric authentication system, such as a fingerprint scanner or a face scanner, you can use it to access data stored in the Chrome password manager.
It works pretty much the same as it does on Android tablet phones when accessing saved passwords in Chrome. Once authenticated, the user will be able to copy the saved password or edit the entry.
Get your tinfoil hats out: how much more Windows 11 “spy” compared to older Microsoft OS
Many have heard claims that Windows 11 is heavily “spying” on users. As a recent YouTube video on The PC Security Channel shows, Windows 11 does send massive amounts of data to its own and third-party servers.
Worst of all, the OS does this before the user even installs or opens their first app. The author of the channel used the Wireshark application to analyze network activity on two “clean” versions of Windows.
The first was the brand new Windows 11, and the second was the good old Windows XP. A quick analysis revealed that Windows 11 connects to many third-party servers and services, most of which do nothing but track for ads. And it’s worth noting that all of these actions take place on every Windows 11 computer out of the box, without prompting the user and before he tries to use the Internet.
