Robert Sansone’s research could pave the way for the sustainable manufacturing of electric vehicles that do not require rare-earth magnets

 

 

休日の今日の英語の習慣化の題材は...

高校生Engineerが電気自動車に使われる、新しいコンセプトのMotorを開発。既存のRare Metal (希少金属)を使わない画期的な開発に成功したと言う、良い話題です。

暑い折、Goodな話題でお楽しみください♪

 

Robert Sansone is a natural born engineer. From animatronic hands to high-speed running boots and a go-kart that can reach speeds of more than 70 miles per hour, the Fort Pierce, Florida-based inventor estimates he’s completed at least 60 engineering projects in his spare time. And he’s only 17 years old.

A couple years ago, Sansone came across a video about the advantages and disadvantages of electric cars. The video explained that most electric car motors require magnets made from rare-earth elements, which can be costly, both financially and environmentally, to extract. The rare-earth materials needed can cost hundreds of dollars per kilogram. In comparison, copper is worth $7.83 per kilogram.

The violent eruption of Tonga's Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apai volcano injected an unprecedented amount of water directly into the stratosphere — and the vapor will stay there for years, likely affecting the Earth's climate patterns, NASA scientists say.

The massive amount of water vapor is roughly 10% of the normal amount of vapor found in the stratosphere, equaling more than 58,000 Olympic-size swimming pools.

"We've never seen anything like it," said atmospheric scientist Luis Millán, who works at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Millán led a study of the water the volcano sent into the sky; the team's research was published in Geophysical Research Letters.

It might strike fear into most people but 93-year-old Betty Bromage has no trouble taking to the skies strapped to the wing of a plane.

The Gloucestershire pensioner has just finished her fifth daredevil challenge to raise money for a local hospice.

"I can't do a lot of things but this is something I can do towards charity, and it's helping other people.

"That's basically been my way of life, to try and help people."

今回は、Co-Pilotの不可思議な飛行中の死亡の件に触れています。

お目をお通しください♪

 

The National Transportation Safety Board said Tuesday that it has launched an investigation after the co-pilot of a small cargo plane died Friday after falling from the aircraft in North Carolina before it made an emergency landing.

CBS affiliate WNCN-TV reported that the body of the co-pilot, 23-year-old Charles Hew Crooks, was found in a backyard in the town of Fuquay-Varina, about 30 miles south of the Raleigh-Durham International Airport. He did not have a parachute.

The pilot made an emergency landing at the airport Friday afternoon after reporting that one of the wheels had come off the landing gear of the CASA 212-200 airplane. He was treated and released from a hospital with minor injuries.

We're setting the record straight on whether your plans are "cancelled" or "canceled"
Another day, another plan you might have to change. Flights are notoriously unreliable, mostly due to staff shortages—airlines and airports experienced considerable layoffs during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, and rehiring hasn’t kept up with the increased demand for air travel. In-person events, too, may be subject to change because of continued COVID-19 infections. As you roll with the circumstances and hope for the best, you may find yourself wondering how to write out any changes you encounter. Is “cancelled” or “canceled” the correct spelling for this turn of events?

As with other words that try to trip us up with variant spellings (we’re looking at you, “traveled” vs. “travelled”), there’s a clear-cut answer to your query—no gray (or is it “grey”?) area here. As you move toward (not “towards”) an understanding of the term and how it’s used, know it’s OK (or, perhaps, okay?) if you get it wrong once in a while.
