Race around the World (TV Series 2007) - IMDb

Russia could soon dispute the title of the Falcon 9 missile. The Angara 5 should be completed by the end of 2015 at the latest and be able to carry a payload of 24.4 tons. That is almost twice the load capacity of the Falcon-9. At the same time, the Roskosmos is already working on the even larger Angara A7V, which is supposed to transport 40.5 tons into earth orbit.

So that you can keep track of the constantly changing epidemiological situation, we show you all the relevant statistics on new infections, the rate of positivity, hospitalizations and deaths in the Swiss cantons and in an international comparison:

Care should be taken that no safety standards are neglected. The global effort for a vaccination is unique in this dimension, but not for the first time. There were also global research activities in the veterinary field, for example vaccination against rinderpest.

ESA transports its satellites into orbit with the Ariane models. Generation five is still in use, but will soon be replaced by the next generation. The Ariane 5 carries a maximum payload of a little more than nine tons into geostationary orbit and is thus behind the Falcon-9 Heavy.

Conquering space is a dream of mankind. Astronauts want to advance further and further into orbit. Stronger missile systems are required for this. FOCUS Online introduces you to the most powerful rockets in the world

In the USA there was little willingness to spend a lot of money on such fantasies, as they were of no use from a military point of view or seemed too utopian. Wernher von Braun's concept for a satellite launch with existing Redstone missiles from the army, put forward in 1955, was rejected by the navy and the air force until the Sputnik success. [8]

The Italian Sergio Canavero wants to be the first to transplant a human head. In China. There was no scientific basis.

The German-British journalist, publicist and writer Sebastian Haffner compared the emotions in Russia after Gagarin's space flight with those in Germany after winning a football world championship and at the same time emphasized the sporty character of the race in space: Reason enough to be happy in Russia such joy, which was felt in Germany when the German national team won the football world championship in 1954. But this sporting success says nothing about the superiority of the Russian (or German) government and economic system, nor about the human historical value of manned space shooting (or football). [39] Through the metaphor of a sporting race, a completely different vocabulary could be developed than if the competition in space had been reported as a political-military confrontation. This made a gentler, peaceful choice of words possible, which was important for the media staging. [2]: 169 The whole race into space was a prestige duel in the Cold War, in which a lot of value was placed on a peaceful image. The choice of language was, alongside the stylisable protagonists of the race into space, the heroes, one of the reasons for the popularity of space travel in the 1960s. This choice of language enabled a broader audience to be addressed, making a highly political topic readable and thus prepared for the broad masses. [2]: 168173 [40]

An American startup has developed a system that turns seawater into drinking water. It produces 11,000 liters a day. It takes the energy it needs from the movements of the waves.

American space travel received proportionally more attention in the western media landscape than the Soviet one, which is mainly due to the strict secrecy on the Soviet side. Unlike the US, the Soviet Union did not announce mission goals and launch plans in advance. Statements during the missions were made by astronauts (e.g. one small step for a person, one big leap for mankind, Houston, we have a problem) and cosmonauts ( e.g. Gagarin's Pojechali) are world famous.

Graphics illustrate the individual steps. We will not comment on the ethical aspects of the procedure because they have already been dealt with exhaustively elsewhere, according to the contribution by Sergio Canavero, Ren Xiaoping and six other Chinese authors. Regarding further plans, it is stated that the next stage is a test operation on brain-dead donors with a beating heart

The documentation explores the question of how our world is being reshaped and redesigned by the new technologies of artificial intelligence. Their development is compared with other upheavals in human history: with the industrial revolution or the discovery of electricity. Both have had a decisive impact on human history.

According to Unicef, around 2000 children under the age of five die every day from diarrhea, which is almost always caused by dirty drinking water, poor hygiene and a lack of sanitary facilities.

At that time there were only a few press reports about an almost simultaneous comparable Soviet program, but these ebbed away. The plans had been abandoned because it was unclear whether an atomic explosion would have been easily perceptible on Earth due to the thin lunar atmosphere; [30] moreover, the technical challenges were enormous. In October 2017, Matthias Uhl, a historian at the German Historical Institute in Moscow, published documents from the Russian State Archives on the Soviet project for the first time. [31]

The data collected were used to prepare for the next two missions: Change-2 started on October 1, 2010 and was largely identical to the previous model. However, it had a modernized camera and also flew in a lower orbit around the moon.
