Japan will build wooden satellites. They are to be fully ecological

It may sound bizarre, but the latest technologies make wood a material that will be stronger than steel. Futurologists even believe that humanity will return to the use of wood on a massive scale, e.g. in construction. In the next few years, skyscrapers are to be built of durable, safe and cheap-to-build wood in various parts of the world. Maybe there will also be time for cars ?!

ATLAS, Spot and Handle surprise with new tricks in the latest video posted on YouTube by Boston Dynamics. We remind you that last month the company became the property of the Korean Hyundai, which intends to further develop the projects of amazing robots, but with a view to using them in the army. The military spares no funds for such technologies, and it is on the battlefields that they can be adopted the fastest.

Elon Musk says the powerful wealthy will not flee to Mars before Earth's destruction

Commenting on the final episode of HBO's four-part Axios documentary series, the head of SpaceX admitted that the most influential people on the planet will not want to live there and create their first colonies. The process of creating the first habitats will be very slow and will take many decades, if not centuries. The billionaire is sure that the rich not only will not want to participate in it, but also will not be safer on the surface of Mars than on Earth, because man is not made to live outside our planet.

The artificial 3D avatars of people from Samsung will flood the world media next year

For the first time in action, they could see NEON technology almost a year ago at the CES in Las Vegas. Now it turns out that its creators, i.e. STAR Labs, want to offer it to the first producers of smart devices, as well as companies operating in electronic media, next year.

NASA has unveiled the latest images of strange vortices raging in Jupiter's atmosphere

Jupiter is a gaseous planet. There is no mainland on it. Instead, it has an extremely dense atmosphere in which incredibly dynamic processes occur continuously. As a result, cyclones appear there, the images of which are terrifying. Most of them are found near the north and south poles of the planet.

Matrix 4 and other blockbuster TV shows on release. HBO Max enters Poland

Of course, HBO cannot be accused of much in terms of the content of HBO Go, i.e. the materials available there, but in terms of quality, it is unfortunately a completely different league than the competition. It is enough to mention here that Wonder Woman 1984 will be the first movie broadcast by this streaming service in 4K quality, although for Netflix or Amazon Prime it has been standard for a long time (not to mention numerous problems of the application, which can be very irritating). It is true that we will wait a little longer, because the European HBO services will be replaced by the Max version only in the second half of next year, but this is undoubtedly great news.

Light-activated material is a breakthrough in energy storage

Light-activated material is a breakthrough in energy storage

Interestingly, the material can be activated with light and then release the collected energy on demand in the form of heat. Researchers began their work with organometallic structures (MOF - metal-organic framework), i.e. materials famous for their porosity and, consequently, their huge surface. This allows them to stick to a huge number of molecules, making them great at desalinating and filtering water, capturing carbon dioxide from the air, and delivering medicine to the body. In this new study, scientists from Lancaster decided to go a step further and see how MOF would handle energy storage.

It has now become clear what the purpose of many companies building e.g. robo-dogs. The quadrupeds will join the soldiers, will be equipped with weapons and will serve them on the battlefields. The first of them just appeared in the ranks of the American Marines. A robot called Vision 60 and Minitaur was designed and built by Ghost Robotics.

The newest images come from the new Solar Telescope. Daniela K. Inouye, which was established on the island of Maui in Hawaii. Heliophysicists boast that they will now be able to monitor the processes that determine cosmic weather live. It is of great importance for the functioning of our planet, especially for space installations in Earth's orbit and for manned missions, e.g. to the International Space Station.

The Chinese built an airplane drive that allows you to fly around the Earth in 2 hours

The Chinese have improved the jet drive with a supersonic combustion chamber, which is considered the future of aviation. Their invention is called the Sodramjet. Engineers managed to overcome the difficulties of its operation at supersonic speeds. Well, the special design of the engine allowed the use of sound booms to accelerate combustion, which increased the efficiency of the system accordingly.
