Distant object at edge of Solar System is an ancient relic from 4.5 billion years ago

Distant object at edge of Solar System is an ancient relic from 4.5 billion years ago It's a rather uninspiring object, with no moons, rings or dust clouds in orbit around it; nor is there any evidence of an atmosphere. But this distant space rock at the far edge of our Solar System is actually an ancient relic that's remained largely untouched – even by the heat of the Sun – since its formation roughly 4.5 billion years ago, a new study said. The unassuming, 20-mile-long object, which looks like a snowman that's been flattened like a pancake, is informally known as "Ultima Thule." Thus, it preserves clues about the early history of the Solar System.

Hyundai has revealed a new solar roof charging function for the Sonata Hybrid. It’s the first model from the firm to feature the technology, although it will not be coming to Europe or the UK.

The solar charging system comprises a roof-mounted solar panel and a voltage controller that converts the energy generated by the solar panel into a useable format. Hyundai claims the system can recover between 30 and 60 per cent of the battery’s charge each day, providing an estimated 1,300km (around 800 miles) of extra range each year.

Three types of solar - charging system are being developed, the first generation for hybrid cars, the second for internal-combustion cars and the third for pure Hyundai hasn't yet revealed exactly which models the technology will first appear on, but it's slated to be available from some point in 2019.

Three kinds of solar roof charging systems are being developed. The first-generation system , which is set to be launched from 2019, is being developed for Hyundai said the third-generation system was undergoing testing. The idea is for it to be added to the hood and roof of battery electric vehicles.

The system will be offered with Hyundai’s 2.0-litre four-cylinder Smartstream petrol-electric hybrid powertrain which, for the Korean market, produces a combined output of 192bhp. The engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and offers claimed economy figures of 56.7mpg.

While the technology plays a supporting role with the new Sonata Hybrid, Hyundai has also hinted that it will develop the technology further, applying it to its future all-electric models as a more important method of energy generation.

There’s also the chance that Hyundai will offer a version of its solar technology on its conventionally powered models in the near future. Heui Won Yang, Senior Vice President of Hyundai Motor, said: “We are striving to further expand the application of the technology beyond our eco-friendly vehicle line up to vehicles with internal combustion engines.”

Astronomers snap photo of second known interstellar object.
The astronomy world received a rare treat last week when an object presumed to be from outside our own solar system was spotted for only the second time ever. At the time, very little was known about the interstellar visitor, but in the days since its initial discovery by an amateur skywatcher, high-powered telescopes have been directed at the object to get a better look. Now, the Gemini Observatory has released a stunning image of the object, which has been named C/2019 Q4 (Borisov). The object, which is now believed to be a comet, is easily identifiable thanks to its hazy, cone-shaped tail.
