Surprising Enterprise to Meet Global Vaccine Need



TESLA & CureVac of Germany - Could It Be a Gamechanger?
Tesla, the world's top electric vehicle manufacturer, is working with a German biotech CureVac to develop a COVID-19 vaccine.  CEO Elon Musk says, as a side project, he's building RNA microfactories for CureVac and possibly for other vaccine research groups.  On Twitter, Musk has said synthetic RNA has "amazing potential" as an approach to immunizing patients against COVID-19.

CureVac Credentials
CureVac is one of only 18 drug companies around the world with COVID-19 vaccine candidates in clinical testing.  The company is working with so-called messenger mRNA, which deliver instructions from DNA to the body's protein makers - ribosomes.  CureVac's approach is to customize mRNA to command ribosomes to make proteins that fight specific diseases like COVID or create antibodies to fight them.  Several other drug companies including Moderna and Pfizer are taki…

SPACE LAUNCH RIDESHARING & DARPA

DARPA's Blackjack Satellite Program on a Space Rideshare



Small Sats, Low Cost, Low Earth Orbit
Ridesharing is a growing megatrend in Space.  A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will fly on a ridesharing mission, early in 2021, carrying a Loft Orbiting satellite with a DARPA Blackjack Pit Boss mission system inside for a space demonstration.  Loft buys space buses (satellites) and rents space.  The US Defense Department's Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) will be flying onboard the SpaceX rocket with many other customer payloads.  DARPA's Blackjack programs aims to deploy low cost, small, low earth orbit satellites into operation for the US Military.

Space Experiment
DARPA's testing of Blackjack will commence in early 2021.  The experiment is called Sagittarius A.  It's designed to demonstrate any risks or problems before the main Blackjack satellites go into production and launch in late 2021.

Pit Boss
Pit Boss is the software mission management system that will enable the …

NEW ROBOT ON COVID TESTING DUTY

Image
Invented by South Korean Doctors





Collects Patient COVID Samples
Doctors and researchers at the Korea Institute of Machinery and Materials have invented a remote-controlled robot - the KIMM robot - that performs and collects COVID-19 tests from the noses of potential patients.  For medical personnel, there is no direct contact with the patients.  The robot performs the tests and collects the samples by being remotely controlled by a doctor.  This system reduces the risk of exposure to COVID for the medical staff.


Parallel Caregiving
The system is based on parallel caregiving where a doctor in one room tells the robot what action to take.  The doctor and patient are connected by audio and video and stay in constant contact.  This is part of a growing trend of robots being put on the front lines of the fight against COVID.  In Boston, Spot robots were used to screen patients remotely using iPads that enabled doctors to screen and visually assess them.  In Singapore, robots are being used to …

SPACE DISCOVERY: PLANET X or BLACK HOLE

Is It an Extremely Powerful Black Hole or a New Planet?



Celestial Mystery on Edge of Solar System
The space phenomena on the outer edges of the solar system is known as Planet X, Planet 9 and Planet Next.  And, global astronomers are baffled by it.  They are not even sure that it's a planet.  Some scientists speculate it's a grapefruit-sized extremely condensed and powerful Black hole.  It's gravitational pull is so strong that it's also called the Big Perturber.  Among the global astronomy community, opinion is divided.  Some believe it is the new Planet X that is 5 to 10 times more massive than the Earth.  Others think it is a powerful, extremely packed Black Hole with all of its explosive energy and mass inside a ball the size of a grapefruit.  Quite a difference of scientific space speculation!
