SpaceX begins construction of its next-generation Starship rockets

  SpaceX begins construction of its next-generation Starship rockets SpaceX's next-generation rocket, the Starship, is 50 meters long and powered by three Raptor engines, creating a whopping 12,000 kN of thrust. It is designed to haul large amounts of cargo and eventually passengers into space, for missions to the moon and potentially to Mars and beyond as well. After unveiling the design for the Starship Mk 2 last month, and also revealing an ambitious timeline for getting the craft into orbit, construction of three of the rockets has begun.As reported by CNBC, aerial video of the company's facility in Cocoa, Florida shows gleaming towers of stainless steel which will become the rocket bodies.

Hey, good morning! You look fabulous.

Yesterday, a SpaceX Starship split wide open, but the company says it's not really a big deal. Also, doctors are putting people in suspended animation, and Verizon's 5G coverage maps are very specific for a reason.

Straight out of science fiction.Human patient put in suspended animation for the first time

The idea that the functions of the human body can somehow be put on "pause" while life-saving medical procedures are performed (or a person is sent into space, a la Alien) has long seemed untenable -- until now. According to New Scientist, doctors have successfully placed humans in suspended animation for the first time, in a trial that could have an enormous influence on the future of emergency-room surgery.

New SpaceX Starship prototype pops its top during test... literally

  New SpaceX Starship prototype pops its top during test... literally The prototype rocket known as "Mk1" suffered an "anomaly" in Texas Wednesday.The early version of the next generation SpaceX rocket appeared to fail during a pressurization test, sending billowing clouds of gas and its hood miles into the air at the company's Boca Chica, Texas test site on Wednesday.

The Morning After : Motorola RAZR returns as a ,500 foldable phone. SpaceX has already moved on to manufacturing its next generation of 'Mk3' Starship frames, but the original model According to site watchers like LabPadre, the top flew some 500 feet in the air as cryofluid sprayed everywhere.

The technique is officially called emergency preservation and resuscitation (EPR) and is being tested at the University of Maryland Medical Center on patients that arrive with acute trauma, such as a stab or gunshot wound. With EPR, the patient is cooled rapidly by replacing their blood with ice-cold saline -- the heart stops beating and brain activity almost completely stops. With chemical reactions in cells slowed down, a surgical team has two hours to work on the patient's injuries before they're warmed up and their heart is restarted. Full results of the trial are expected to be announced by the end of 2020.

The original Starship Elon Musk stood in front of two months ago popped open during a "pressure test" at the company's Boca Chica, TX, site. According to site watchers like LabPadre, the top flew some 500 feet in the air as cryofluid sprayed everywhere. In slow-motion, it appears fluid started bursting from the sides first.

Watch SpaceX's Starship presentation at 8PM ET

  Watch SpaceX's Starship presentation at 8PM ET SpaceX is close to outlining the next chapter for its Starship program, and you can hear about it at the same time as anyone else. The company is streaming its presentation on the "design and development" of Starship at 8PM Eastern, with Elon Musk shedding light on the vessel at the launch facility in Boca Chica, Texas. It's not clear exactly what Musk will discuss, although there have been some clues. Musk has previously hinted that the event might show off the completed prototype ahead of its first suborbital flight. There's also a possibility that SpaceX will narrow down the time frame for that flight, which might happen as soon as October.

The SpaceX Starship is both the second stage of a reusable launch vehicle and a spacecraft that is being developed by SpaceX , as a private spaceflight project.

According to SpaceX, "The purpose of today's test was to pressurize systems to the max, so the outcome was not completely unexpected. There were no injuries, nor is this a serious setback. The decision had already been made to not fly this test article, and the team is focused on the Mk3 builds, which are designed for orbit."

PayPal has snapped up Honey, the popular money-saving service, in a deal worth $4 billion. It's the company's biggest ever acquisition, and Honey already has over 17 million users. If you haven't heard of Honey before, it tracks price changes on retailer websites but also automatically inputs coupon codes the service detects (or sees people using) when you checkout. If no coupons are available, Honey also has a loyalty point system that can result in gift cards if you're shopping a lot.

SpaceX's Starship halves comes together ahead of a big announcement

  SpaceX's Starship halves comes together ahead of a big announcement Ten days after we got a peek at the construction of SpaceX's first Starship in Texas, CEO Elon Musk tweeted out a picture of the craft's two halves coming together. It's a timely post, as Musk is planning a press conference Saturday evening with updates on the company's programs, including its Starships. Last year Musk revealed that Japanese billionaire will be the first lunar space tourist, so who knows what's in store now.This 10-story-high Mk1 will provide a perfect backdrop for his comments, but that's not all. It's also fitted with three of SpaceX's Raptor engines, that should be enough to power a test flight soon.

The top of SpaceX ’s Mk 1 Starship appears to have blown off during a pressure test of the prototype rocket. On a conference call organized by NASA earlier this week, SpaceX president and COO Gwynne Shotwell stated that the company could land a Starship craft on the Moon as early as 2022.

At I/O earlier this year, Google showed off how Duplex on the Web could take your Assistant requests and navigate through websites to make them happen. Now the technology has been switched on for buying movie tickets.

If you own an Android phone, simply tell the digital helper that you want seats to a specific movie or search for showtimes using the Google app. Assistant will then take care of working through any website, which makes it handy for ones that aren't optimized for mobile. It's even able to automatically input info you may need to complete a purchase.

Newly released cases for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max all include a dedicated camera button that can launch the Camera app, take a photo or (if you hold it) record video. The concept of a camera button on an iPhone case certainly isn't new, but this is an official option from Apple -- and it's hard to find a case that also extends your battery.

SpaceX Starship pressure test blows up Musk's Mars rocket prototype

SpaceX 's Starship rocket prototype experienced a major failure during pressurisation testing on Wednesday. A video from the scene in Texas showed the The US company bills Starship as an all-purpose transportation system of the future. It will be used to ferry people and cargo off Earth, and to

Video The Mk1 prototype of Elon Musk's Starship suffered what we're betting SpaceX will call an "anomaly" during a fuel tank test today. Viewers of a internet live-stream of the test were able to make out the top of the tank protruding from the Starsh** stage as SpaceX filled the thing with fuel.

Cases for all three models cost $129 and come in black, white and (for the 11 Pro/Pro Max) pink. That makes them more expensive than options like Mophie's $80 Juice Pack Access, and you're covering up the phone's built-in Lightning port where options like Mophie's offer access to both.
