Solar solution for stratospheric flight At Xponential

Solar solution for stratospheric flight At Xponential
HALE (High Altitude Long Endurance) UAVs and HAPS (High Altitude Pseudo-Satellites) are massive aircraft, often with wingspans as large as a Boeing 747, that rely on solar power to remain aloft for multiple weeks, or even months, at a time. The stratosphere, at an altitude of 20km, poses engineering challenges to aircraft due to its harsh conditions.

The first image of a black hole

The first image of a black hole
This week, the world had a first view of the ground-breaking discoveries brought forth by Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) – an international scientific collaboration aiming to create a virtual Earth-sized telescope. The images of the event horizon of a black hole were constructed from data gathered by observatories all over the globe. Guest article written by Andreea Volosincu, Wind River.

The time u-blox took a trip to space

The time u-blox took a trip to space
For a few seconds, everyone at the SwissTech Convention Center (EPFL) held their breath as the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket of Spaceflight SSO‑A: SmallSat Express mission took off towards low Earth orbit from Space Launch Complex 4E (SLC‑4E) at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, USA. The rocket’s payload included a CubeSat nanosatellite designed by Astrocast, a prototype to test the 64‑satellite constellation the Swiss company intends to seed into orbit to provide a global communication satellite network for remote IoT and M2M applications.
