The world’s first biofuel booster. bluShift Aerospace Successfully Launches Stardust 1.0 Prototype

Published

Rocket fuel is different. Modern solutions are based on ammonium perchlorate, kerosene, liquid oxygen and so on. But yesterday one very unusual option was added to this list.

The young bluShift Aerospace successfully launched the world’s first biofuel booster yesterday. More precisely, it was a prototype called Stardust 1.0, which, despite a number of problems, managed to reach an altitude of over 1.2 km, and then returned to the ground with a parachute. This cannot be called a full-fledged launch of a carrier rocket, but we are still talking about testing a prototype.

In any case, for bluShift Aerospace, this is precisely a successful launch, proving the possibility of creating such a rocket.

Of course, a biofuel rocket cannot compete with the classic giants. Therefore, the Stardust 1.0 is a rocket with a height of only 6 meters with a payload of 8 kg. At the same time, the second prototype will be able to boast of a carrying capacity of 30 kg, and the design height will reach 55-100 km. In any case, we are talking about a very small rocket that can put very compact satellites into orbit.

The future serial rocket will be based on the Modular Adaptable Rocket Engine for Vehicle Launch (MAREVL), which was tested on the first prototype. It uses proprietary solid biofuels that are non-toxic, carbon-neutral, and the manufacturer claims can be purchased from farms across America.

If all goes well for the company, the next prototype – Stardust 2.0 – will be launched later this year.

The worlds first smartphone in Pantone Color of the Year

Motorola decided to be in trend and introduced the Edge 30 Fusion smartphone in Viva Magenta color.

Viva Magenta has been named Pantone’s Color of the Year 2023. The company’s specialists explained their choice by the fact that it is “an unusual red for an unusual time.”

It is worth noting that the Viva Magenta color has never been seen in smartphones before. Motorola’s novelty in this color, unfortunately, will be exclusive to the US market, but the company may well release its new flagship in the same color. It is also worth noting that the specified version of the smartphone will come with Moto Buds 600 ANC TWS headphones. True, the headphones will be of a different color, but even here Motorola decided to approach the issue from an unusual angle. The fact is that the headphones will be painted in Winetasting color, which was chosen by Pantone as an addition to Viva Magenta.
