“The era of 10 euro tickets is over.” The most famous low-cost airline said that ultra-cheap plane tickets are a thing of the past due to the rapid rise in the cost of aviation fuel

Irish low-cost airline Ryanair will no longer offer €1 and €10 flights. This was stated by the executive director of the air carrier Michael O’Leary on the air of the BBC.

The era of 10 euro tickets is over The most

There is no doubt that our tickets for 1 euro, 99 cents and even 10 euros were the cheapest on the market. I think over the next few years there will be no more such proposals. The era of 10 euro tickets is over‘, O’Leary said. He acknowledged that the rise in prices is due to the “rapid rise in the cost of aviation fuel.”

Ryanair is considered one of the cheapest air carriers in the world along with British EasyJet, Spanish Vueling and Hungarian Wizz Air. The price of flights between European cities for the company started from 10 euros and varied depending on the route, and for advertising purposes it was reduced down to 1 euro.

According to the head of the company, the average cost of air tickets now “will grow from about 40 euros last year to about 50 euros over the next five years“. However, he believes that such a dynamic “will not affect the number of passengers“.

Earlier, O’Leary noted that plane tickets will become more expensive in the medium term due to rising fuel prices, environmental fees and the consequences of Brexit. In an interview with the Financial Times, he called it absurd that “flight to [лондонский аэропорт] Stansted costs less than a train ride from the air harbor to the city center“.

Hyundai showed the concept of the K808 armored personnel carrier

Hyundai Rotem, Hyundai’s military vehicle division, has announced a new generation of armored personnel carriers and tanks at DX Korea 2022. Their feature will be the use of hydrogen power plants and artificial intelligence systems.

Hyundai showed the concept of the K808 armored personnel carrier with a hydrogen power plant.  The prototype is expected to be released in 2026.

The new armored personnel carrier bears the symbol NGWAV (Next-generation Wheeled Armored Vehicle, new generation armored personnel carrier), the tank – NGMBT (Next-generation Main Battle Tank, main battle tank of the new generation). They will replace, respectively, the K808 armored personnel carrier and the K2 MBT tank, which are in service with the army of the Republic of Korea.

Hyundai showed the concept of the K808 armored personnel carrier with a hydrogen power plant.  The prototype is expected to be released in 2026.

Hyundai Rotem notes that the novelties are being developed taking into account modern technologies – they will use AI, a fuel (hydrogen) cell power plant, an autonomous driving system, and next-generation weapons.

NGWAV will be based on the current K808 platform with a hydrogen power plant. The project started this year, the prototype should appear in 2026.

The company takes ten years to create NGWAV and NGMBT, while some characteristics of the promising armored personnel carrier are already known. Its weight will not exceed 30 tons, the maximum speed will be 100 km/h, the cruising range is 600 km. However, there may be some changes in terms of power reserve, since it all depends on how many fuel cells will be placed on board. Also, NGWAV will receive an uninhabited tower, a 40-mm cannon and a rocket launcher.

The Redmi smartphone costs just over 100 Redmi A1 render

The source published details about the Redmi A1 + smartphone. As the name suggests, this model will be an improved version of the previously released Redmi A1. And there will only be one improvement.

This is a fingerprint scanner. Redmi A1 does not have it, while Redmi A1+ has the corresponding sensor on the back panel. There will be no more differences between Redmi A1 and Redmi A1 +.

Redmi A1 + will receive a screen with a diagonal of 6.52 inches and HD + resolution, SoC MediaTek Helio A22, 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of flash memory (in the basic version), a 5-megapixel front camera and an 8-megapixel main camera (there will be a second image sensor , but its resolution is not reported), a 5000 mAh battery with support for 10 W charging. The device will run pure Android version 12. Other features include a standard headphone jack and a microUSB port.

The exact cost of Redmi A1 + is not called, but the source logically explains that the inclusion of a fingerprint scanner in the design will have a minimal impact on the price. If Redmi A1 is priced at 100 euros, then Redmi A1 + will be slightly more expensive than 100 euros (or $ 100).

Is there a meteorite? Chinese scientists believe that dinosaurs began to die out before the meteorite fell

Is there a meteorite Chinese scientists believe that dinosaurs began

Researchers from the China University of Geosciences, after examining more than 1,000 eggshell remains, suggested that dinosaurs were on the path to extinction millions of years before the meteorite fell.

Is there a meteorite?  Chinese scientists believe that dinosaurs began to die out before the meteorite fell

Fossilized eggshells and whole eggs of dinosaurs that lived two million years before the meteorite hit have been discovered in central China. Despite the huge number of remains, they belonged to only two different taxa – hadrosaurids and oviraptors. At the same time, the number of species has been constantly decreasing for all two million years. This may indicate that biodiversity was already extremely low then.

The decline in biodiversity has weakened the collective ability of dinosaurs to adapt after the impact of the asteroid Chicxulub that fell in Mexico. This means that the prerequisites for the mass extinction of dinosaurs were formed millions of years before the meteorite fell.

Low species diversity in the same period was also characteristic of North America, i.e., the decrease in diversity took place globally. Causes could be volcanic eruptions and climate change. Some studies suggest that dinosaur diversity may have begun to decline 10 million years before the meteorite impact. Opponents of this hypothesis believe that less than 20% of the dinosaurs were in decline before the meteorite fell, so it is impossible to explain their extinction only by “earthly” reasons. The authors emphasize that further research is needed on this topic.
