Virgin Hyperloop hits an important milestone: the first human passenger test

Virgin Hyperloop announced that for the first time it has conducted a test of its ultra-fast transportation system with human passengers.

The test took place on Sunday afternoon at the company’s DevLoop test track in the desert outside Las Vegas, Nevada. The first two passengers were Virgin Hyperloop’s chief technology officer and co-founder, Josh Giegel, and head of passenger experience, Sara Luchian. After strapping into their seats in the company’s gleaming white and red hyperloop pod, dubbed Pegasus, they were transferred into an airlock as the air inside the enclosed vacuum tube was removed. The pod then accelerated to a brisk 100 miles per hour (160 km/h) down the length of the track, before slowing down to a stop.

It’s an important achievement for Virgin Hyperloop, which was founded in 2014 on the premise of making Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk’s vision of a futuristic transportation system of magnetically

Virgin Galactic planning to launch suborbital test flight this month

Virgin Galactic will reach space again just two weeks from now, if all goes according to plan.

Virgin Galactic aims to launch its VSS Unity space plane on its third piloted test flight to suborbital space between Nov. 19 and Nov. 23, according to an update the company released on Thursday (Nov. 5). 

The upcoming flight will tote some revenue-generating payloads via NASA’s Flight Opportunities Program, the update notes. The planned mission will mark Unity’s first trip to space since February 2019 and its first-ever spaceflight from Virgin Galactic’s commercial hub, Spaceport America in New Mexico. 

“This will be the first-ever human spaceflight conducted from New Mexico,” Virgin Galactic CEO Michael Colglazier said in the update.

LONDON (Reuters) – Facebook Inc and Twitter Inc flagged some of President Donald Trump’s posts on the U.S. election as votes were still being counted, in a real-time test of their rules on handling misinformation and premature claims of victory.

The two companies have been under fierce scrutiny over how they police rapidly spreading false information and election-related abuses of their platforms. In the weeks before Tuesday’s vote, both vowed action on posts by candidates trying to declare early victory.

Twitter hid a Trump tweet that claimed “we are up BIG, but they are trying to STEAL the Election” behind a label that said it was potentially misleading. The company also restricted users’ ability to share the post.

Here’s how the Pentagon will test industry’s counter-drone tech for an enduring capability

WASHINGTON — Beginning early next year, the Pentagon will host the first opportunity for industry to demonstrate counter-drone technology aimed at small systems, the next step in a plan to test out new capabilities twice a year at common test ranges, according to Army officials in charge of the effort.

Pentagon leaders approved in late September a set of requirements to help counter small drones, laying a path for how industry can develop technology to plug into a single command-and-control system.

The Joint Counter-Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems Office, or JCO, kicked off the pursuit with an industry open house Oct. 30.

The defense secretary delegated the Army in November 2019 to lead the effort to consolidate the wide range of counter-small unmanned aerial system, or C-sUAS, capabilities into a select group of interim systems. Those systems have now been chosen, with the JCO turning its sights toward establishing an enduring

SpaceX will stream potentially fireworks-filled Starship test flight


SpaceX assembled the shiny pieces of its planned Starship orbital prototype in late 2019. This wasn’t a launch-ready version, but it shows what the spacecraft will probably look like when it’s finally ready for testing.


The latest prototype of Elon Musk’s planned Mars rocket has been coming together at the SpaceX development facility in Boca Chica, Texas. SN8 looks more like an actual rocket than previous iterations, and it could be the first to make an actual high altitude flight, though Musk has been quick to lower expectations.

Previous versions have managed a few short “hops” of nearly 500 feet (150 meters) in altitude before making controlled landings not far from where they lifted off. Now Musk hopes to fly SN8 to over 9 miles (15 kilometers) high, but he also isn’t guaranteeing it’ll make it far off the launchpad.

Alibaba-backed autonomous car firm AutoX to test in four more cities

SHENZHEN/SHANGHAI (Reuters) – Chinese autonomous vehicle startup AutoX, backed by Alibaba Group Holding Ltd, said it is preparing for tests in four more cities and will soon test its technology with FCA’S Pacifica minivan.

The four-year-old firm is also in talks with prospective investors to fund fleet expansion and development, Chief Executive Xiao Jianxiong told Reuters, without elaborating.

Automakers and technology firms are investing billions of dollars in autonomous driving, aiming to take an early lead in what many consider the future of mobility. To attract deep-pocketed partners, startups seek to test their technology with different production vehicles in a variety of cities.

Shenzhen-based AutoX has modified a number of vehicles from various manufacturers and tested them in Shenzhen, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Wuhan and Wuhu. In July, it became the second firm after Alphabet Inc’s Waymo to test a vehicle on California’s public roads without a safety driver in the front.
