Outlandish Mars One project goes bankrupt before reaching Red Planet

first_img Share your voice 32 Photos 2 Mars One Project = Interplanetary Fyre Festival.— Matthew Inman (@Oatmeal) February 11, 2019 Humans on Mars: An atlas of plans to land on the Red Planet An artist’s visualization of the Mars One base on the Red Planet. Mars One The greatest journey in human history won’t be financed by the most ambitious reality show ever. That’s because the for-profit arm of the audacious venture known as Mars One has been dissolved by a civil court in Switzerland.The brain child of Dutch engineer and entrepreneur Bas Lansdorp, Mars One initially hoped to send test missions to Mars in 2018 to pave the way for human visitors in 2025. The whole adventure was to involve volunteer astronauts selected from the public via an “American Idol”-style public elimination process. The project’s ever-growing mix of funding sources included advertising from the television show that would follow the process, crowdfunding and more traditional investments.Almost from the start, Mars One struggled to raise funds and astronaut candidates reported the selection process was anything but rigorous.The craziest part of the plan was that selected Mars colonists would have no way of returning home. Mars One astronauts would be explicitly agreeing to live out their remaining days on Mars. And according to some students at MIT who took a close, critical look at the venture’s mission plans, Mars One volunteers would be lucky to make it more than two months once they arrived.

Here’s what happens. Tags Lansdorp and Mars One refuted the criticism, but over the past four and a half years the initiative seemed to flail, making no visible progress toward a test mission of any kind. The bankruptcy ruling came on Jan. 15, according to a Swiss commercial register entry spotted by a Redditor. However, the social media accounts for Mars One remain active and Lansdorp told Engadget the non-profit Mars One Foundation remains open but in need of funds and he is working “to find a solution.”Mars One and Lansdorp did not immediately respond to requests for further comment.Meanwhile, Mars One looks to be the first official casualty of the mid-2010s craze to get to the Red Planet, which Elon Musk and NASA, among others, are still pursuing in earnest.Cartoonist Matthew Inman summed up the scheme’s demise best with the apt and timely comparison on Twitter that “Mars One Project = Interplanetary Fyre Festival.” Comments Spacelast_img read more

Vodafone Idea merger New entity to change the pecking order of Indian

first_imgShares of Idea Cellular jumped as much as 29 percent after Vodafone Group confirmed that it’s in merger discussions with India’s third largest telecom operator. At the same time, shares of Vodafone Plc on the London Stock Exchange were trading 4 percent higher in early trade.Reliance Jio vs incumbent telcos: Idea Cellular’s high-speed wireless broadband to become fully operational in 2017Any merger, if it happens, would drastically change the pecking order in the Indian telecom industry. According to a report by global brokerage house CLSA, the combined Vodafone-Idea entity would have 43 percent revenue share in the market by FY2018-19 against 33 percent of Bharti Airtel and 13 percent of Reliance Jio. “Such a merger will help Vodafone India improve its position in the mass market, while Idea Cellular would gain from Vodafone’s strength in the metro circles. Finally, the merger would create a new leader in the mobile/data industry, challenging both Bharti Airtel and Reliance Jio and further intensify the competition,” CLSA said in the report.  Vodafone India said the company was exploring merger plans with the Aditya Birla Group, which operates Idea, for an all-share merger of Vodafone India and Idea. However, this excludes Vodafone’s 42 percent stake in Indus Towers. The Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) has sought a clarification from Idea Cellular on January 30 with reference to the merger news appeared in a business daily. At the time of writing this report, any financial terms and conditions of the possible merger were not clear. According to the most recent filing to the BSE by Idea, promoters hold a 42.45 percent stake in the telco. At around 2 pm on Monday, shares of Idea were trading at 26 percent higher at Rs 98. Shares of other Aditya Birla Group companies listed on the exchange also spurted on the possible merger talks. Shares of Aditya Birla Nuvo traded at Rs 1,455, up 6.32 percent, while Grasim stock was up 6 percent at Rs 984.  BloombergOn the consolidation talks in the sector, all telecom stocks were buzzing in trade on Monday. India’s largest telecom operator Bharti Airtel’s stocks were up 8 percent at Rs 349, while Reliance Communication (RCom) traded 10 percent higher at Rs 34.10. Such a deal could boost the merged entity’s Ebitda by 25-30 percent, led by savings in network and SG&A (Selling, General and Administrative) costs and a lower net debt-to-Ebitda ratio at 3.3 times, according to a report by the Economic Times.last_img read more

Chevys New Electric Car to Compete With Tesla But Will Cost Much

Register Now » Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. 3 min read LAS VEGAS — The CES show is feeling more and more like a car show. The first press conference of the event was for Faraday Future, a company showing off a next-generation concept electric car, and Volkswagen took the stage Tuesday evening to officially kick off CES and show off an electric car of its own, a concept of its all-electric version of its iconic VW bus.Wednesday Chevrolet joined the conversation, unveiling its highly-anticipated 2017 Bolt EV. The car, which is expected to go into production toward the end of the year, will be capable of traveling up to 200 miles on a single charge and is priced at $37,500 ($30,000 after tax credits), making it within reach of average consumers. (Tesla’s vehicles start at $70,000.)“It was less than a year ago that we revealed the Bolt EV concept and promised to deliver a long-range electric vehicle attainable by the masses,” GM Chairman and CEO Mary Barra said in a statement. “The Bolt EV is capable of using the latest mobile app technology to enable car sharing, advanced GPS routing and gamification, all designed to enhance the ownership experience now and into the future.”Related: What To Expect From CES 2016We had the opportunity to briefly drive a prototype of the vehicle at CES, and walked away very impressed. It is compact, making it a great fit for city drivers, but also has enough room inside (and trunk space) that you don’t feel like you’re tooling around in a clown car. Features include a 10.2-inch color touchscreen display; a rear camera mirror, which provides a wide-angle view of what’s happening behind the vehicle; and surround vision, a technology that allows drivers to see a bird’s eye view of the environment around the vehicle. That view can be super useful for those trying to squeeze into that tight parallel parking space and need to know how close they’re getting to the curb.Image credit: ChevroletEach one of those features has a little something that makes it standout from some of the other options out there. For instance, the touchscreen can be customized with widgets that you want access to – be it energy stats, Pandora radio or what have you. And the rear cam is actually displayed on the rearview mirror rather than the center console, making it easier to see while you have the car in reverse.Related: BlackBerry Is Getting Into Self-Driving CarsBluetooth low energy will allow the car to get to know individual drivers of the vehicle, and make adjustments to their specifications as they approach the vehicle. For instance, if you’re 6’ 2”, the car might recognize you’re approaching and automatically adjust the seat to fit your height after your shorter spouse finishes driving. The feature can also do things like set a specific temperature and adjust other features.That gamification details is an interesting one. Chevy will ultimately be offering Bolt EV owners the opportunity to compete with other owners, to compare driving styles and determine who among the group is driving the most efficiently.With a 200-mile range and innovative features, it’s definitely a game changer in the world of electric cars.Related: Faraday Future Shows Off Its Wild Electric Car Concept January 7, 2016 Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goalslast_img read more
