World Second richest man investing one billion per year in his reusable rocket company  

Jeff Bezos wants to see the space industry expand to the scale of today's internet industry, creating a "completely new world." Bezos founded Blue Origin, a reusable rocket company to achieve his childhood dreams of space colonization. One of the company's rockets, New Glenn, will cost at least $2.5 billion to develop.The Blue Origin is where Bezos sells about $1 billion a year of Amazon stock and uses it to invest in Blue Origin.Amazon stock went up and increased Jeff Bezos

Lockheed's Cislunar space station proposal  

Lockheed Martin is studying the capabilities needed to support human pioneering in deep space. Habitats, known formally as "exploration augmentation modules," are essential for the exploration of the outer bounds of space."The habitat will support missions in the proving of deep space exploration," said Bill Pratt, Lockheed Martin's program manager for the habitat study. "Basically, the habitat would be located just far enough away that astronauts couldn't easily turn around and c...

New version of the Boeing F18 would work with F-35s  

Boeing is developing a new Block III version of its F/A-18E/F Super Hornet to complement the Lockheed Martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.The most important upgrade is long-range IRST system—which is designed to be a counter-stealth sensor, Gillian said. The Navy considers this essential to countering new enemy stealth aircraft such as the Chinese J-20 and Russian PAK-FA. Gillian added that Boeing and Navy solved many of the traditional issues associated with infrared sensors—but didn't go in...

A new graphene based electrode created by RMIT University researchers could boost the capacity of existing integrable storage technologies by 3000 per cent. Theoretical analysis using an analytical equivalent circuit model shows that the enhancement of the areal capacitance is up to 300 times for Hilbert BFE electrodes compared to its planar electrode counterpart. The graphene-based prototype also opens a new path to the development of flexible thin film all-in-one solar capture and storage, bri

They charged 10% less than an unused rocket.The space shuttle was reused but the space shuttle was much more expensive than disposable rockets."The SSMEs were reusable," Dan Dumbacher, former NASA deputy associated administrator for exploration systems development, said of the space shuttle main engines.
