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.
