SpaceX has lost the fourth consecutive Starship spacecraft prototype

Published

on

SpaceX is still having difficulty completing Starship test flights. The SN11 prototype was lost approximately six minutes after the start of the test flight at altitude. It is unclear what exactly happened, but the image from the camera attached to the prototype disappeared after one of the engines restarted for landing. Soon, debris from SN11 fell to its intended landing site.

Elon Musk noted that the second engine had problems both when lifting and landing. More details are expected to emerge after SpaceX investigates the wreckage.

The source recalls that this is the fourth test in a row, which ended in failure. But in previous cases, prototypes at least landed entirely.

However, this incident is unlikely to affect the behavior of SpaceX, which builds every next Starship prototype in just a few weeks.

Rostec introduced an electric motor for drones

Roselectronics Holding, a member of Rostec, presented a synchronous electric motor for a wide range of applications at the Army-2022 forum. Due to its low weight, efficiency and reliability, the development can be used to create helicopter-type unmanned aerial vehicles.

Rostec introduced an electric motor for drones

Among the advantages of a synchronous motor over an asynchronous one are a greater power and efficiency factor, a wider range of speed adjustment, high operational reliability, and better weight and size indicators. The mass of the product is 3 kg, the engine, developed by the Kaluga Electromechanical Plant of the Ruselectronics holding, can be used in helicopter-type drones.

Our UAVs have proven themselves well in real combat conditions. This technique is also in demand in the civilian market. Now the industry faces a big and important task of import substitution of many components, including power plants. I am sure that the new domestic compact electric motor will help UAV developers in solving this problem.”, – said Oleg Yevtushenko, Executive Director of Rostec.

Synchronous motors are also used in industrial ventilation and air conditioning systems, pneumatic systems and motor vehicles.

Tickets bought Berries. Aviasales bought the yagodki.rf domain and set up a redirect from it to its website

Tickets bought Berries Aviasales bought the yagodkirf domain and set

Today we already wrote that the retailer Wildberries filed an application for registration of the Yagodki trademark – the company renamed its official website to Yagodki for just a day as part of a marketing campaign, but this became the most discussed event of the week. It was logical to assume that Wildberries also had plans for the corresponding domain, but here everything clearly did not go according to the marketplace scenario: “berries.rf” is already registered and leads to a very specific resource.

Tickets bought Berries.  Aviasales bought the yagodki.rf domain and set up a redirect from it to its website

After Wildberries changed its name to “Berries”, Aviasales, in the wake of the Internet hype, renamed itself “Tickets”. But the air ticket search engine went even further – it bought out the yagodki.rf domain and set redirects to its main site. So now, by going to “berries.rf”, you automatically get to the main Aviasales (which will obviously be called “Tickets” for a long time). It turns out that whoever is first, he ate the “berry”.
