From New Atlas:

Private space startup Astra reaches orbit for the first time

By Nick Lavars
November 21, 2021

A new player has joined the ranks of private spacefaring outfits
with the ability to reach orbit, following the successful
lift-off for startup Astra's launch vehicle. The achievement
comes just five years after the company was established, marking
a rapid emergence for the aspiring provider of small satellite
launch services.

The Alameda-based Astra was incorporated in October 2016,
launched its first rocket in July 2018, and then reached space
for the first time in December of 2020. This made it the fastest
privately-funded company to reach space.

With its own dedicated spaceport in Kodiak, Alaska, the company
then set out to reach orbit in August but came up short, with one
of its rocket's five main engines shutting down less than a
second after lift-off. The flight was ended after two and half
minutes, with the team investigating the cause of the failure
through a joint probe with the Federal Aviation Administration.

The team then set its sights on the LV0007 mission, with a test
payload for the US Space Force packed into the protective fairing
of Rocket 3.3, an expendable two-stage rocket designed to carry
500-kg (1,100-lb) payloads to altitudes of 500 km (310 miles).

Lifting off on November 20, Astra's orbital launch vehicle fared
much better this time around, successfully reaching its target
altitude of 500 km at an 86-degree inclination.

From Deutsche Welle:

Circular economy: Could rethinking design transform the world?

        Some argue that switching to a "circular economy" is crucial
        when it comes to climate protection and sustainability. But
        what would it entail? And can it work on a global scale?

Tim Schauenberg
22 November 2021

Whether it's islands of trash in the ocean or the 40 million used
tires in the Kuwait desert visible from space, signs that the
world is choking on trash are not hard to find. And this has
devastating consequences for the climate, ecosystems and human

We currently live in a linear economic system "designed to
extract raw materials, process them into usable goods, and then
ultimately either dump them in a landfill or incinerator, recycle
them, or dispose of them in nature," said Leyla Acaroglu, a
designer and sustainability expert.

A circular economy aims instead to create a system that avoids
waste as much as possible and reuse resources for new products.
The life cycle of a product

Achieving this requires a complete rethink in how design can
extend the life cycle of a product. Take disposable coffee cups:
Although made from cardboard, they are often covered with a layer
of plastic, which makes recycling challenging, and sometimes

And, when it comes to electronic devices, it is often more
straightforward and affordable to buy an entirely new product
than repair or replace parts in an old one. A circular economy
makes sure these considerations are embedded into the entire
design and production process.

Circular economy means more than recycling

At least 1 billion used tires are thrown away every year.
Because the rubber is made from crude oil that is very difficult
to recycle, tires are usually burned, or processed into
low-quality rubber mats. However, the goal of a circular economy
is to preserve the value of the product and avoid so-called

The German company Pyrum Innovations has spent the past few years
developing a technology that almost completely recovers the oil
from used tires. They say the demand for this process is now
increasing. "I can think of almost no country in the world from
which we haven't had an inquiry," said Pascal Klein, co-founder
of Pyrum. By 2025, the company plans to build 50 plants in Europe
and supply 100,000 tons of oil to chemical giant BASF.

The role of technology

Ninety-two million tons of old textiles end up in the trash every
year, only 1% of which is recycled. Furthermore, products in the
fashion industry that are recycled often lose their value.

A key missing aspect of textile recycling is detailed information
about the materials involved. That is why the Berlin-based
start-up is working on technology that
automatically recognizes and sorts textile fibers and gives them
a "circular ID." "This allows us to quickly calculate whether
reuse or recycling is best for this product," said Mario
Malzacher, co-founder of the company.

The concept of the circular ID, known at the European level as a
"product passport." is an essential aspect of the European
Union's Circular Economy Action Plan for a resource-saving
economy. The identification label contains information on the
origin, composition, repair instructions and end-of-life options
for a product.

Circular economy: No silver bullet

A study into the circular economy concept by Yale University
warns of the possibility of a "rebound" effect, in which more
efficiently designed and cheaper products could lead to more,
rather than less, consumption.

Key to recycling is that it uses fewer resources than extraction
and disposal - otherwise, it adds to, rather than reduces, the
carbon footprint. To prevent that from happening, they argue
research needs to continue and circular approaches need to be
carefully implemented.

Yet the transiation to a circular economy is still in its early
stages. Today less than 9% of the global economy reflects
circular principles, according to the Circular Economy Gap
Report. Resources are being depleted with increasing intensity,
consumption is rising, and little progress has been made in
dealing with products at the end of their life cycle.

Research suggests that the benefits of overcoming these
challenges could be significant.

According to the World Economic Forum, the switch to a circular
economy could have an annual global financial benefit of $4.5
trillion (€3.8 trillion). Research from the Ellen MacArthur
Foundation states that it could also reduce global greenhouse gas
emissions by one-fifth, making it a crucial tool in tackling the
climate crisis.
