    Esapekka Lappi does not lose hope of returning to the premier class of the WRC in 2022 with the arrival of the new hybrid ‘Rally1’ vehicles. For this reason, the Finnish driver not only wants to stay active and will compete with a Volkswagen Polo GTI R5 in the Arctic Rally, but aspires to be able to fill a test and development pilot position for one of the manufacturers that are developing these new hybrid cars for the next season. Lappi understands that this may be the shortest way to win a seat. and to be among the best drivers in the WRC again. The 2016 WRC2 category champion is without a seat after leaving the ranks of M-Sport, but he has a technical background that can be very interesting for brands. In fact, the own Esapekka Lappi highlights this circumstance: «I was involved in the development of the Skoda...
    The latest prototype of SpaceX's next-generation Starship rocket launched successfully on Tuesday but exploded on impact during an attempted landing after the company's latest development test flight. Starship prototype Serial Number 9, or SN9, aimed to fly as high as 10 kilometers, or about 32,800 feet altitude. The flight was similar to the one SpaceX conducted in December, when it launched prototype SN8 on the highest and longest flight to date.SpaceXThe rocket prototypes are built of stainless steel, representing the early versions of the rocket that CEO Elon Musk unveiled last year. The company is developing Starship with the goal of launching cargo and as many as a 100 people at a time on missions to the moon and Mars. CEO Elon Musk pivoted the company's attention to Starship in May, after SpaceX successfully launched its first astronaut mission. He's deemed Starship the company's top priority, declaring last year in an email...
    (CNN)Andrew Brooks, a research professor at Rutgers University who led the development of the first FDA-approved Covid-19 saliva test, died suddenly on January 23, according to a Rutgers statement.His sister, Janet Green, confirmed to CNN on Sunday that the cause of death was a heart attack. She called him "an intellect, an amazing scientist, an amazing father ... an amazing family man."Brooks, 51, was the chief operating officer and director of technology development at RUCDR Infinite Biologics, the lab that developed the saliva test. The test, which was approved in April 2020, was authorized for at-home use a month later. FDA authorizes Covid-19 saliva test for emergency useNew Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy referred to Brooks as "one of our state's unsung heroes" in a January 25 news conference, saying his work "undoubtedly saved lives.""We cannot thank Andy enough for all he did across his career," Murphy said. "He will be...
    SpaceX Starship is to fly up 41,000ft into the air above Texas later today in the first high-altitude test flight of the massive rocket, but it is unlikely to land safely.  The Starship two-stage-to-orbit heavy lift vehicle has been in development since 2012 and is designed to bring the cost of launch down by being more reusable. In a statement, SpaceX said the first test was expected to happen between 14:00 GMT and 23:00 GMT on Tuesday December 8, but that time could change . The flight is designed to test a number of features of the giant spaceship, that could take the first passengers to Mars as early as 2026, according to CEO Elon Musk. These tests include the vehicle's three Raptor engines, the overall aerodynamic entry capabilities including body flaps, and a 'landing flip manoeuvre'.  However, Musk tweeted that a 'lot of things need to go right' for it...
    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — As the lines for drive thru COVID-19 testing lengthen throughout L.A. County, there may be another solution on the horizon. The FDA on Tuesday approved a rapid at-home test that will give patients results in 30 minutes or less, without ever sending the results to a lab. The newest test developed by Bay-area company Lucira Health, would be the first to give results without sending the swab to a lab — making the test much more rapid and convenient. At-home COVID-19 tests are already available at regular pharmacies, including inside grocery stores. To buy a test, a questionnaire must be filled out online in advance, and the patient must have a prescription approved. Currently, the tests run around $150. However, the newest test developed by Bay-area company Lucira Health, would be the first to give results without sending the swab to a lab — making the test...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Major developments are in the works for rapid COVID testing, which experts say is crucial to reopening the economy safely. New tests promise to get results back within hours or even seconds, CBS2’s Dr. Max Gomez reports. We’ve said it before — tests that take days or weeks to give a result are useless. Too much spread or infection could happen in the interim. But companies ranging from Big Pharma to foreign start-ups have made tremendous strides in developing new tests that are simple and fast enough to possibly be used at restaurants, concerts, sporting events and even airports.

    It could be the next Amazon! Left-wing activists and their allies on the City Council are once again facing off against a coalition of unions, allied lawmakers and business groups over the fate of a proposed mega-redevelopment — this time, at Brooklyn’s Industry City. Boosters say the project would yield at least 15,000 new jobs at and nearby the complex that Gotham’s coronavirus-devastated economy desperately needs, while opponents argue it would cause more gentrification in Sunset Park. The project’s fate now rests in the hands of city lawmakers, putting Council Speaker Corey Johnson into the middle of another showdown between ascendant left-wing activists and stalwart Democratic Party constituencies as he weighs a 2021 mayoral campaign. “It’s a real tough one. There are no easy outcomes here. You have people who have legitimate concerns on one hand and 15,000 jobs on the other,” said one veteran Democratic strategist. “There are going...
    US researchers have warned that a shortage of monkeys could delay efforts to develop a coronavirus vaccine.  The Covid-19 pandemic has increased demand for the animals, which are challenging to source for primate research even under normal circumstances due to the cost and controversy surrounding it.  Rhesus monkeys are most commonly used in biomedical research, according to The National Primate Research Centers.  'We can't find any rhesus any longer. They've completely disappeared, Mark Lewis, the CEO of contract research firm Bioqual, said. Rhesus monkey pictured above  'Nationally, there is basically a big shortage,' Koen Van Rompay, of the California National Primate Research Centre, told The Atlantic magazine.  'We can't find any rhesus any longer. They've completely disappeared,' Mark Lewis, the CEO of contract research firm Bioqual, said.  The increased demand for the monkeys during the global pandemic has been coupled with a severe decline in supply from China. China provided 60...

    A woman holds a small bottle labeled with a "Vaccine COVID-19" sticker and a medical syringe in this illustration taken April 10, 2020.Dado Ruvic | Reuters Over 100 prominent scientists, including 15 Nobel laureates, are calling for healthy volunteers to be exposed to the coronavirus to see whether vaccines against Covid-19 actually work. The scientists signed an open letter to Dr. Francis Collins, the head of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the U.S., on Wednesday calling for human "challenge trials" that they say could "greatly accelerate" the development of a Covid-19 vaccine.  Challenge trials see healthy volunteers deliberately exposed to a virus, after being given a vaccine, to test whether the vaccine works to prevent infection. Such trials are not without controversy, but organization '1 Day Sooner' and other prominent experts insist the benefit of fast-tracking challenge trials outweigh the risks, and are calling on the U.S. government...
