Nasa invents ‘incredible’ battery for electric planes

Nasa invents ‘incredible’ battery for electric planes Anthony Cuthbertson Mon, October 10, 2022 at 5:22 AM · Nasa  has invented a new type of high-performance battery that researchers claim could be used to power fully electric airplanes. The US space agency made the breakthrough following investigations into solid-state  batteries , which hold more energy and are lighter than industry-standard lithium-ion batteries. Solid-state batteries also perform better in stressful environments, as they are less prone to overheating, fire and loss of charge over time, however they typically cannot discharge energy at the same rate as li-ion batteries. Until now, this has made them unsuitable for powering large electronics, such as electric vehicles, as they require batteries capable of discharging their energy an incredibly fast rate. This issue was solved by researchers at Nasa’s Solid-state Architecture Batteries for Enhanced Rechargeability and Safety (SABERS) unit, who were abl

Deepfake Bruce Willis To Return To Movie Screens

Deepfake Bruce Willis To Return To Movie Screens BY TYLER DURDEN SATURDAY, OCT 01, 2022 - 04:00 PM   Bruce Willis retired from acting following a diagnosis of aphasia, which causes a person to have difficulty communicating with others, but a "digital twin" of the American actor using deepfake technology will live on in future films and commercials.  The Telegraph  reported Willis is the "first Hollywood star" to sell the rights of his digital twin in perpetuity. The actor will license his digital rights through a company called Deekcake, which specializes in artificial intelligence.  In a statement on Deepcake's website, Willis said: "I liked the precision with which my character turned out. It's a mini-movie in my usual action-comedy genre. For me, it is a great opportunity to go back in time. "With the advent of modern technology, even when I was on another continent, I was able to communicate, work and participate in the filming. I
