The BMW Group has proposed two micro-mobility concepts: electric bicycle and an e-scooter for city-use companions. The compact cargo tricycle concept is designed to achieve high maneuverability, flexible driving characteristics, and higher year-round applicability. According to BMW, the Escooter concept is ergonomically designed, suitable for daily use, provides stability while driving, and has an extremely compact packaging that is ideal for transportation in the trunk of a car.
Both concepts were developed to increase the range of electric vehicles based on the application. The battery can also be removed and recharged at home. Earlier this month, the German luxury car manufacturer launched a new two-wheel electric vehicles for the city.
NASA selects SpaceX to provide Earth’s first mission launch service to conduct detailed research on Jupiter’s moon Europa. The mission will use sophisticated scientific instruments to investigate whether the icy moon has suitable living conditions. High-resolution images of the European surface allow us to determine its composition, look for signs of new or ongoing geological activity, measure the thickness of the moon’s ice cover, search for underground lakes, and determine the depth and salinity of European oceans.
The Europa Clippers mission is scheduled to be launched in October 2024 using a Falcon Heavy rocket from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. According to the space agency, the total value of the launch service contract is approximately $178 million. The NISER satellite will use advanced radar images to make global measurements of changes in the earth’s surface, and will be launched in early 2023.
IBM and the University of Tokyo demonstrated the world’s most powerful quantum computer. As part of the ongoing collaboration to develop the IBM Quantum System One, Japan is now working for researchers from Japanese academic institutions and companies who have university-managed access. In addition, quantum resources are small. In addition to classical processing that allows users to safely execute algorithms that require repeated quantum circuits in the cloud, this is the second system built outside the United States, the first being in Germany after the recently launched system. Operated by the Fraunhofer Association. In a separate development, researchers at Toshiba Europe’s Cambridge Research Laboratory have shown that quantum information can be successfully transmitted over 600 kilometers of optical fiber.
