Surpass the Egyptian pyramids. Saudi Arabia will build a skyscraper 120 km long and almost 500 m high

Saudi Arabia has unveiled a $1 trillion Mirror Line skyscraper project that will be taller than the Empire State Building (381 m) and will be more than 100 km long, made of mirror glass.

The Mirror Line will become part of a city called Neom, roughly the size of Massachusetts, which Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud announced in January 2021. He decided to create such an iconic and timeless building project that would surpass the Egyptian pyramids.

The Mirror Line will consist of two 487m high buildings that will run parallel to each other through 120km of desert, coastline and mountain landscapes. Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud wants the Mirror Line to be ready by 2030, but engineers say construction could take up to 50 years.

The city will be powered by renewable energy sources. The prince insists that the buildings will be completely carbon neutral and safe for the local environment. A high-speed train will pass through the city, which will deliver from one end of the city to the other in 20 minutes.

Mirror Line will create thousands of jobs. Once built, the city will be able to accommodate 5 million people, who will partly feed on vertical farming. Under the plan, residents will pay a subscription for three meals a day.

The Mirror Line will also include a sports stadium which will be 300m above the ground. Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud hopes that Neom will allow the country to stop being so dependent on oil.

The Neom city project has already faced criticism when it became known that local tribes were forcibly expelled from the area, and a resident was allegedly shot by security forces.

Environmental planners say the Mirror Line will disrupt migratory bird flight patterns, and the building’s mirrored glazing could further confuse them.

“The sale of SIM cards is really becoming more expensive and meaningless,” MTS will reduce sales of SIM cards and the number of communication stores

The sale of SIM cards is really becoming more

MTS President Vyacheslav Nikolaev said that the company plans to move towards reducing sales of SIM-cards, as well as reducing their points of sale.

It seems to me that now, when the cost of SIM cards has increased by an order of magnitude, it’s time to heal this market. Therefore, from the point of view of sales of SIM cards, it seems to me that the sales volume can now be reduced, especially since for us, ecosystem effects provide very serious advantages in reducing the outflow – this also allows us to take sales more calmly.

“The sale of SIM cards is really becoming more expensive and meaningless,” MTS will reduce sales of SIM cards and the number of communication stores

Nikolaev noted that an increasing number of customers are also moving online, which also allows, in terms of telecom, to reduce the number of their own points of sale.

From the point of view of telecom, it seems to me that this is a very timely issue, and perhaps the right actions will be taken by the entire market. At least we will go in this direction. We hope that colleagues will not be far behind, because selling SIM cards is indeed becoming more expensive and pointless.

As we have already reported, MTS may sell its tower business.

The SpaceX Starship interplanetary spacecraft has not yet made a

One of Asia’s largest telecoms and pay-TV operators, Japanese company Sky Perfect JSat, has announced that it plans to use the SpaceX Starship interplanetary spacecraft to launch its Superbird-9 telecommunications satellite into geosynchronous orbit in 2024. The details of the deal were not disclosed.

The situation is noteworthy in that Starship has not yet made a single orbital flight: Elon Musk promises to launch Starship on a test flight into orbit almost every month for about a year, but it is delayed each time. However, there is no contradiction that an interstellar spacecraft to launch a payload into orbit: in concept, Starship should replace all of SpaceX’s current rockets, including the workhorse Falcon 9, which goes into space every week.

Hackers cracked the latest Pentagon technology

Hackers at the DEF CON 2022 event in Las Vegas managed to break into a new technology of the US Department of Defense – local autonomous electrical networks (microgrids) at military bases.

Hackers cracked the latest Pentagon technology

The Pentagon has tested the technology to look for vulnerabilities. Many of the more than 1,700 DEF CON members have successfully shut down a dummy network that mimics the one being prepared by the Pentagon. So, one of the hackers found out that microgrids work on the Kelvin temperature scale, which does not use negative values. As a result, he put negative numbers in the forecast model, which caused the system to crash.

The Pentagon said they also plan to launch a full-fledged program to further test the microgrid and find gaps. A microgrid is a technology for dividing one power system into sections. Each cell is able to work autonomously if necessary and actively uses alternative energy sources.
