Since 2015, reusable rockets have dramatically decreased the cost of transportation from Earth to orbit

Posted by in categories: space travel, sustainability

Such process is paving the path toward civilian space development and astropolitical uses of space as well, and is creating a growing interdependent relationship between life on and beyond Earth. 2015 can now be identified as a “turning point” in history, signifying a change of paradigm, from “traditional” aerospace to a “new space” age.

As soon as the U.N. 2030 Agenda [1] was published, some relevant criticalities appeared. The general criteria supporting the concept of sustainability developed by the agenda is an unquestioned limitation to the boundary of Earth’s atmosphere. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, was conceptualized during the traditional aerospace age: outer space was not considered, as a dimension that helps to increase the sustainability of development. Space science and technologies are supporting social and environmental goals on Earth, for many years. Yet that will not be enough, to warrant a really sustainable development. To allow a real sustainable development, it is indispensable and urgent to start civilian space development, outside Earth boundaries. Therefore the UN 2030 Agenda of the Sustainable Development Goals needs to be updated.

Bitcoin plunges more than 10% after Elon Musk’s SpaceX reportedly sold the cryptocurrency

Posted by in categories: bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, Elon Musk, space travel

The price of bitcoin plunged about 10% hours after it was revealed that Elon Musk’s SpaceX sold the cryptocurrency.

The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday that SpaceX, which first purchased bitcoin in 2021, wrote down the value of its bitcoin holdings by a total of $373 million in 2021 and 2022 and has sold the crypto.

The write-down coincides with a steep drop in bitcoin’s price, which crashed in late 2021, setting off a “crypto winter” that extended through most of 2022.

Mysterious New Warp Drive Patent Surfaces Online

Posted by in categories: quantum physics, space travel

😗😁 2021

After appearing for decades in science fiction, then moving into an actual theory, a new patent for an updated warp drive was published last year to no fanfare. Like many other false starts in cutting-edge research, the patent may represent the next step in the expanding theory, or it could mean the practical, real-world design of a functioning warp drive is on the horizon.

Cutting Edge Levitation Technologies Aim to Revolutionize Bioprinting and Space Travel

Posted by in categories: bioprinting, biotech/medical, space travel

A new project is using cutting-edge levitation techniques to make bioprinting heart models and other complex tissues a reality.

Dubbed PULSE, the project combines the recently developed techniques of acoustic levitation and magnetic levitation to manipulate individual components without actually touching them. It’s a process that the researchers involved hope will one day facilitate the bioprinting of organs and other human tissues in much greater detail and complexity than what is achievable with current techniques.

If perfected, the researchers also hope this type of bioprinting could even help on long-term space missions as more accurate organ models can create more accurate defenses against radiation and other stresses of space travel.
