From the Voice of America:

Virgin Galactic Plans to Build Next Generation Supersonic
Commercial Aircraft

VOA News
4 August 2020

Entrepreneur Richard Branson's aerospace company, Virgin
Galactic, announced Monday that it is working with British engine
manufacturer Rolls-Royce to develop an aircraft that can travel
three times the speed of sound.

According to a release, Virgin Galactic says its new aircraft
will be designed to carry between 9 and 19 people and will be
able to "integrate into existing airport infrastructure."

The company released images of designs of the aircraft, which is
fashioned similarly to the Concorde supersonic aircraft, which
Rolls-Royce also worked on in the 1960s. Concorde was retired in

Virgin Galactic said it completed its Mission Concept Review
(MCR) and received authorization from the U.S. Federal Aviation
Administration's (FAA) Center for Emerging Concepts and
Innovation. The MCR describes a plane that can travel more than
3,700 kilometers per hour at altitudes higher than 18,000 meters,
literally to the edge of space.

Earlier this year, Virgin Galactic signed what it called "a space
act" agreement with the U.S. space agency, NASA, to encourage
commercial orbital space flight to the International space
station, and to collaborate on high speed technology for lower
orbit travel.

The company says it is also working on developing "sustainable"
aviation fuel for the aircraft.

From New Atlas:

New Zealand to trial world-first commercial long-range, wireless
power transmission

Loz Blain
3 August 2020

A New Zealand-based startup has developed a method of safely and
wirelessly transmitting electric power across long distances
without the use of copper wire, and is working on implementing it
with the country's second-largest power distributor.

The dream of wireless power transmission is far from new;
everyone's favorite electrical genius Nikola Tesla once proved he
could power light bulbs from more than two miles away with a
140-foot Tesla coil in the 1890s - never mind that in doing so he
burned out the dynamo at the local powerplant and plunged the
entire town of Colorado Springs into blackout.

Tesla's dream was to place enormous towers all over the world
that could transmit power wirelessly to any point on the globe,
powering homes, businesses, industries and even giant electric
ships on the ocean. Investor J.P. Morgan famously killed the idea
with a single question: "where can I put the meter?"

It has taken 120 years, but New Zealand company Emrod appears to
have finally convinced a major power distributor to have a crack
at going wireless in a commercial capacity. Powerco, the
second-biggest distributor in New Zealand, is investing in Emrod,
whose technology appears to be able to shift large amounts of
electricity much more efficiently, between any two points that
can be joined with line-of-sight relays.

"We're interested to see whether Emrod's technology can
complement the established ways we deliver power," said Powerco's
Network Transformation Manager Nicolas Vessiot. "We envisage
using this to deliver electricity in remote places, or across
areas with challenging terrain. There's also potential to use it
to keep the lights on for our customers when we're doing
maintenance on our existing infrastructure."

Emrod currently has a working prototype of its device, but will
build another for Powerco, with plans to deliver by October, then
spend several months in lab testing before moving to a field
trial. The prototype device will be capable of delivering "only a
few kilowatts" of power, but can easily be scaled up. "We can use
the exact same technology to transmit 100 times more power over
much longer distances," said Emrod founder and serial
entrepreneur Greg Kushnir. "Wireless systems using Emrod
technology can transmit any amount of power current wired
solutions transmit."

The system uses a transmitting antenna, a series of relays and a
receiving rectenna (a rectifying antenna capable of converting
microwave energy into electricity). Each of these components
appear in these images to simply look like big ol' squares on
poles. Its beams use the non-ionizing Industrial, Scientific and
Medical band of the radio spectrum, including frequencies
commonly used in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Unlike Tesla's globally-accessible free power dream, the power
here is beamed directly between specific points, with no
radiation around the beam, and a "low power laser safety curtain"
immediately shuts down power transmission before any object, like
a bird, drone, power thief or helicopter, can touch the main
beam. There will be no difficulties this time working out where
to place the meter.

Emrod says it works in any atmospheric conditions, including
rain, fog and dust, and the distance of transmission is limited
only by line of sight between each relay, giving it the potential
to transmit power thousands of kilometers, at a fraction of the
infrastructure costs, maintenance costs and environmental impact
a wired solution imposes.

Indeed, Emrod sees wireless transmission as a key enabling
technology for renewable power, which is often generated far from
where it's needed. This kind of system could be terrific for
getting the products of offshore and remote renewable energy
generation into the city grids without the need for giant storage
batteries and the like.

It'll also be handy in certain unplanned outage events; a truck
can be fitted out with a rectenna, and then driven anywhere in
visual range of a relay to create a temporary wireless power

The company has been liaising with the Radio Spectrum Management
authorities in New Zealand throughout its development process,
with a view to meeting every safety standard even once the
technology scales right up to high power levels, a process
Kushnir says has also helped Emrod develop guidelines for the
companies that will be using the technology.

We've contacted Emrod to ask more about efficiency, the size,
shape and state of the current prototype, future plans and what
indeed would happen if you stuck your hand in the middle of the
beam, and will bring you more information when we can.

"......The history of the 45 RPM record adapter starts in the 1950's, after advancements in record technology in the late 40's. With the modern record came an interesting story of two rival companies and a period of time when there was a heated competition between two types of new record formats: the 45 RPM single song record vs. the 33 1/3 RPM Long Playing album. In music history it was known as ' The Battle of the Speeds'. ........"
