SpaceX founder is the world’s wealthiest individual today

Elon Musk has just become the world’s wealthiest man, pushing fellow space mogul Jeff Bezos from the top. The founder and Chief executive Officer of SpaceX is now worth over $185 billion, as per media estimates, due mainly to the continuing increase in the share price of his electric vehicle business, Tesla. As per CNBC, Bezos, who operates Amazon.com and the Blue Origin spaceflight company, is reportedly worth $184 billion. Since the year 2017, Bezos has owned the world’s most-rich title.

Musk ended with $27 billion in 2020 then padded his pocketbook throughout the year in unprecedented fashion, CNBC reported. “Musk’s assets rise over the last year represents the quickest rise to prominence of the wealthy list in history — as well as being a dramatic monetary transformation for the famed businessman, who just 18 months ago would be in the spotlight for Tesla’s fast cash burn as well as his personal control against the firm’s stock,” CNBC reported. “Tesla’s soaring share price — that has risen far beyond nine-fold over the last year — together with his lucrative pay package have contributed over $150 billion to his current net worth.” SpaceX that is not a publicly held firm, unlike Tesla Company, had a major 2020 as well.

All told, 26 flights were launched by SpaceX in the year 2020, more than any other it has ever done in a single year. In Starship’s production, the transportation vehicle it is designing to carry people to space, Mars, and even beyond, the business has taken significant steps. Musk has already stated that back in the year 2002, he created SpaceX specifically to help mankind colonize Mars, and so to help make this possible, he intends to dedicate a significant portion of his growing money.

“About 50% of my money is meant to support Planet issues and a half to support create a self-sustaining town on Mars to ensure the continuity of life (of all the species) if Earth is struck by a meteor such as the dinosaurs or the WW3 and we kill ourselves,” Musk twitted in 2018, that he had pinned to the top of his account in Twitter.  “Blue Origin states that to maintain Earth, our home, for our descendants, we need to go to orbit to access its limitless resources as well as energy,” the core mission statement of the organization reads, in part. “Just like the Industrial Revolution paved the way to economic abundance, new communities, trade and high-speed transportation — our path to space unlocks to the gate to the endless and yet unthinkable future subsequent generations might experience.”

NASA to modify solar arrays for the space stations

NASA will begin improving the International Space Station’s solar arrays this year to guarantee that the station has adequate electricity to remain working at least until the end of the current decade. The agency reported on January 11 that it would launch the first set of updated solar arrays on the SpaceX Dragon cargo spaceship, housed in the unpressurized trunk portion of the spacecraft, to station scheduled later this year. Two other sets of arrays would fly on subsequent Dragon cargo missions, but NASA Agency did not announce a timeline for them. The arrays will be mounted on top of six out of the station’s eight current solar arrays.

Using so enables the entire arrays to be using existing arrays’ monitoring and power delivery systems, reducing the number of new devices required. In order to plan the position where arrays will be mounted, and to do the implementation itself, every array will need two spacewalks. This installation implies that the existing arrays, occupying a little more than half of every array, will slightly shadow the existing ones. However, by shielding the old arrays, the current arrays are more effective; generating more power than what would be lost.

NASA predicts that 215 kilowatts of power will be produced by the total power system if all 6 additional arrays are built, relative to 160 kilowatts associated with the current arrays. A technique named Roll-Out Solar Arrays (ROSA), created by the Deployable Space Systems will be used in the latest arrays. In a canister, the solar arrays are folded and either unfurled or stretched out, while in space. In 2017, the ROSA system was evaluated on the ISS and has now been integrated into other spacecraft, like NASA’s lunar gateway Power and Propulsion Element.

From the year 2000 to 2009, NASA built the current set of 8 arrays on space missions. As anticipated, the efficiency of the arrays is steadily deteriorating. The ISS Advisory Committee described the deterioration in the year 2018 as one concern for ISS’s long-term future. NASA is officially approved to service the ISS by 2024. Still, many proposals have been made in Congress to explicitly allow operations to be expanded by the end of the current decade.

The Agency aims to transition to the commercial space stations ultimately. Still, a lack of funds has slowed its low Earth orbit modernization program, including only $17 million in the financial year 2021 relative to its $150 million proposals. Boeing, the main contractor of NASA’s ISS, is hopeful that the station will run with new solar panels for coming years, as well as many other projects on its power grid and improvements to its communications program to expand its bandwidth.

Startup creates an AI system to fix the battery of electric vehicles

Artificial hardware, which is intelligence-driven, has been developed by a startup PURE EV that is incubated in IIT Hyderabad to optimize the detection and fix of defects in electric vehicle lithium-ion batteries. The next decade’s technology removes the need for consumers to attend repair centers to fix battery defects. Artificial Neural Network-based algorithms have been developed by PURE EV researchers for the device named ‘BaTRics Faraday’ that recognize the battery faults in different series and automatically repair them to the benefit of the cells’ electro-chemistry potential.

The hardware completely automates this process, and there is no manual operation needed all the way until complete restitution of capacity. BaTRics Faraday’s thorough fieldwork has also been done. For any of the five 2-wheeler models introduced by PURE EV (Etrance, Egnite, Epluto 7g, Etrance Neo, and Etron+), this device can be used. During the first quarter of the year 2021, this system will be phased out.

“The most important aspect of electric vehicles is lithium batteries. They include several lithium cells welded to attain the required voltage as well as ampere-hour (Ah) potential in series and parallel configurations. In the event of any battery failures in any of the cell sequences, the EV users will have substantial downtime. In addition, the trend of user behavior and Indian environmental circumstances put more strain on the batteries. As such, it is a very challenging job for the OEM battery to repair the defects by diagnosing and removing the faulty sequence of cells,’ stated Nishanth Dongari, founder of the PURE EV and an associate professor of IIT-Hyderabad, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. 

In such a situation, any breakthrough that offers certainty on the lower delivery period to prospective consumer stakeholders would dramatically raise their level of interest in this technology’s advent. Innovative technologies such as ‘BaTRics Faraday’ must be advertised for electric cars to become popular, meaning that the battery does not switch into an idling resource for EVs owners.

“The need for an hour is to create an intelligent hardware system that, by an external curing mechanism, fixes battery faults. PURE EV has created AI-driven hardware that, via an externally connected system to the battery, performs the evaluation and repair of faults in the rechargeable batteries. This saves valuable man-hours usually spent on replacing cell series as well as minimizes the “turn-around time” battery,” he said.
