Hydrogen Commercial Jets by 2030
Airbus Pushing Hydrogen Commercial Planes
Source: Hydrogen Plane Concept
European Union's Hydrogen Strategy
In Europe, there is growing consensus building around utilizing hydrogen as a primary, green, renewable energy source. The momentum is coming from the both the European Union and global aerospace giant Airbus. France-based Airbus believes that hydrogen fuel is the quickest means to turn commercial passenger jets into zero emissions passenger flights. Company leadership forecasts that hydrogen airliners could be flying in much greener skies by the early 2030's.
To develop and deploy hydrogen commercial jets by the early 2030's, Airbus Vice President for Zero Emissions Technology Glenn Llewellyn recommends utilizing and reconfiguring automotive and space launch hydrogen technologies that are already developed to create hydrogen commercial passenger jets. Toyota is a major developer of hydrogen fueled cars and the Japanese automaker also advocates for a hydrogen powered society. Hydrogen developed from renewable energy sources is clean, green and has zero emissions. In the space industry, the Vulcan 2 liquid fuel engine rocket is hydrogen powered. The rocket lifts the Airbus designed Ariane launcher into space for the European Space Agency.
Llewellyn's strategy is to jumpstart the development of hydrogen aircraft by utilizing proven, existing hydrogen technologies.
The European Union has developed a hydrogen strategy to move forward the production, use and distribution of hydrogen throughout the region. There are even proposals to create a hydrogen pipeline throughout the European Union by tying together existing gas pipelines and moving green hydrogen through it to major population and industrial centers for use as green fuel for everything from commercial hydrogen jets, hydrogen cars, hydrogen trains and more.
Superstar Robot Packers Superstar Customers
The Italian packaging company CMC in the medieval town of Citta di Castello has robot machines at the cutting edge of 2019 filling some very big orders for big clients and it delivers. The robotic packaging machine is called CartonWrap. It can box and seal 600 to 1000 items of every shape and size every hour, 24/7, including in tailor made boxes. Clients of the automated packaging machines include Amazon, Walmart and Gucci.
Big Business in Italy
CMC and CartonWrap are one of 630 companies in Italy making automated packaging machines. This is the new robotic, automated economy and it is one of Italy's fastest growing industries. In fact, the sector is accelerating 9X's faster than the overall Italian economy. It's another example of robotic technology cutting time, costs and in this case packaging waste and creating a whole new avenue of global business that's a disruptor.
1st Test for CTE, Sports-Related, Traumatic Brain Injuries in the Living
Breakthrough Research and Discoveries by Boston University Scientists
CTE is the danger for players inherent in any contact sport. Repeated hard hits to and rattling of the
head in the course of games taking a cumulative toll and resulting in traumatic brain injury CTE which is a fatal disease. Until now, there was no way to detect it in the living. The only reference points for doctors were changes in mood and behavior in the patient following a bad hit to the head and concussion.. But now, there is a brain scan test to detect the abnormal protein tau which is an indicator that the disease condition is present. It's an important breakthrough just announced by scientists at Boston University. For a great news blog, go to Important Innovations Collection: Breakthrough on CTE Brain Injuries from Sports: First Test for CTE in the Living Source: Stock Image Game-changing Discovery by Boston University…
New Invention: Tablet Toothpaste "Change Toothpaste" Potentially Cuts 900 Million Plastic Toothpaste Tube Throwaways Per Year
Tubes of toothpaste aren't something you think about but their impact on the global environment is hugely negative. 900 million toothpaste tubes are discarded into oceans and landfills globally every year. Importantly, it takes 500 years for them to breakdown, which means virtually every toothpaste tube created is still discarded someplace in the world. And, the tubes, which contain multiple layers of plastic, polymers and resins, can't be recycled. A company headquartered in Edmonton, Alberta Canada just came up with a solution in the form of tablet toothpaste.
"Paste with No Waste"
Entrepreneurs Mike Medicoff and Damien Vince are the inventors and founders of CHANGE Toothpaste. Their tablet toothpaste is an all natural vegan substance that works just like toothpaste but has no harsh chemicals. You pop the pill in your mouth, cr…
