The Alaska Supreme Court ruled this week that people voting by mail will not need a witness to sign their ballots Katie Oh reported the Arctic Village Council and others had sued to block the signature requirement because of the covid nineteen pandemic. The Anchorage Superior Court ruled in their favor but the division of elections appealed it to the State Supreme Court Natalie Lander is with the Native American Rights Fund, and represented the plaintiffs. She told the court voters at a higher risk for the virus including Arctic village residents face a choice between their health and casting their ballots. It's not worth it to vote. I have to expose myself to this illness for another person and I think that's the problem, the unpredictability and the fear that we're putting voters. Now, the pandemic is not the state's fault but the requirement is.

Alaska's Saber Wolf
"Is Welcome to kids myths and Mysteries. I'm your host kid crumb today Mysteries of the Alaskan Wilderness when I began my research on the Alaskan triangle. I found there were so many months that I had to narrow it down to two categories vanishings and Monsters the monsters included the waheela were sabrewulf the Great Alaskan tiger the northern giant bear an acoustic on the vanishings were too numerous to track. So I went with the 1972 disappearance of then House Majority Leader Hale Boggs. Now a little history on Alaska wage. The largest state in the Union is twice the size of Texas 95% of which is uninhabited thousands of people vanish every year in Alaska since the state started keeping track in nineteen eighty-six over sixty thousand people of vanished all of the monsters in the vanishings have occurred in what is called the Alaskan triangle triangle goes from Anchorage to Juneau to Barrel wage. It makes a rather elongated triangle. I had my work cut out for me. So I started with the Hale Boggs who climbed into a twin engine Cessna 310 and flew out of Anchorage had it for June off. The plane was equipped with the latest tracking device in the pilot was considered one of the best and was known to be able to set a plane down in an emergency without injury to his passengers. At first. I am intrigued because twenty years later a plane on the same flight plan also vanished Without a Trace. However, I dismissed the bogs disappearance when I found out that he had made enemies with Richard Nixon and J Edgar Hoover and when the bogs case was reopened in the late nineties documents before and after he vanished were reviewed it became apparent that his disappearance may not have been an accident and this conclusion became even more suspect when it turned out that photos taken with infrared film from a special search plane had been removed from the case birth. So I dropped the vanishings to moved onto monsters at first. I scoffed at the idea of real monsters. I mean come on, but it was a town of Port walk and one of the monsters it made me a Believer. The town of portlock was essentially a fish processing Port conveniently-located fishing vessels brought in their catch, but the town was plagued with odd murders body of the missing were found dismembered in a manner that couldn't have been done by a bear our cat. There were also trackers and Hunters experienced from the town that ventured out and were never heard from again soon. People were leaving the town and The Cannery actually ran out of Manpower in the 1930s when incidents started to happen. Most of the Russian Elites actually moved out of the town for a year people running the Cannery basically begged their workers to come back and they set up armed guards for a short period of time tried to get their workers back in town. Monster or know people abandoned portlock in mass and it became a ghost town literally overnight. Well, one of the problems I ran into with my research is a few people I needed to hear from had computers. So there was no email and even less were interested in talking to me over the phone of the monsters one stood out the wahila of what the local call the sabrewulf. The reason for. This is a several years ago. I was researching Canada's nahanni Valley located in the Northwest Territories Deadman's Valley to be exact way. It was Untouched by the last ice age and was one of the last homes for the woolly mammoth and what the danai people called the wahila upon further research. I found that the native language of the danai is the same as the Navajo that live in the United States Southwest. I also discovered that their ancient oral history describes a gila the Navajo Nation actually home. An ancient charcoal sketch of the creature the last stop on that research was a complete skeleton of the wahila at a museum on the University of British Columbia Campus of the Alaskan triangle. There is certainly a lot of unexplored ground that could hide any number of unknown species and there is no end of local and Indigenous folklore about what I know without a doubt. It's just somewhere in that uninhabited ninety-five percent of the state of Alaska an animal lurks is science calls of a Gila and locals call a sabrewulf

The Haunting of the Juneau Hotel
"My investigation into the world or the paranormal metaphysical. I took us out to sea and looked at a haunted ship. Now I bring us back to the shores of Alaska and a haunted hotel. That has a history that dates back to the Alaskan gold rush the US bought Alaska from the Russian eighteen. Sixty seven just thirteen years after this in eighteen eighty Joe Juneau and Richard Harris discovered gold and Silver Creek Basin. Soon after the Alaskan gold rush began with a vengeance years later in nineteen thirteen mccloskey brothers who had struck it. Rich during the rush built a three story. Hotel near the steamship docks. The gold rush attracted an estimated. One hundred thousand people many came expecting to strike it rich and be able to return home were they would live out wealthy man's life. They brought what little money they have. Many selling everything they owned women from all walks of life joined the Klondike Gold Rush of eighteen ninety seven ninety eight. Some were poor. Some were professional. Some wives joined their husbands. Other women left their husbands at home. A few women came from desperation to support themselves and families other sought out adventure and excitement for their boring routine life. These women face no ordinary circumstances most damn Peter's male or female. We're not physically conditioned for the strenuous life that was required. Some died along the way. Now there's turned back as dreams gave way too harsh reality. Some women found themselves in situation. Say Never Imagined. One of the few options they had was employment in the sex industry. Although there were man that took advantage of the sex trade many from the midwest eastward repulsed the types of work women were able to do in the Klondike full into three categories prostitution dancehall entertaining and respectable work. The majority of women worked in one or both the first two fields creating the wild west myth of the Klondike however many women worked in less scandalous positions. One thing all women share no matter what type of work they did was their style of dress whether they worked in the private or public sphere. They all wore. Clothes considered respectable for the Victorian Society. Red Light district work the last recourse woman could turn to. When she had exhausted all others was the most undocumented type of work despite its fame as the oldest profession that would be prostitution the first woman to follow men to the gold rush where prostitutes they knew the scarcity of women in the region would bring men to their doors in search of brief female companionship and pleasure and they would pay dearly for of the forty thousand. That actually reached Juno Dawson city. Only about fifteen thousand became prospectors and of those only around. Four thousand actually struck gold. The Legend states that a woman named Alice came to Juneau with her husband. Who put her up on Alaskan Hotel? He left telling her he'd return in three weeks but when after several months he hadn't come back she ran out of money and food. She became desperate alone. Not knowing a soul she became a lady of the evening but in a twist of fate her husband did return and was so enraged. Twenty found out what she had been doing dragged or ten to a room the back of the hotel and he shot her. The Alaskan hotel was purchased to nine thousand nine hundred eighty seven and renovated by new owners but they claim that ghostly activity has increased. One Ghost said to reside in the Alaskan hotel is named Alice. Staff have stated that they always felt an unearthly presence when in the back of the hotel and a recount. How towels and other items misplaced guests? Who Occupy Room to eighteen and to nineteen at the back of the hotel and have no prior knowledge of the murder of Alice often asked to be moved to another room. One that is less noisy. One visitor told staff that during his stay he felt waves on unhappiness.

The National Marine Fisheries Service. I grew up in Michigan Rural Michigan. And like a lot of people I came here is it as a young person and state I usually hunt alone. I almost always hunt alone and I appreciate being alone I really do. It's hard to describe the thrill I feel. I have my pack on my back my rifle my hands hands and I'm walking up some dally that I've never been before and then if I see track of a big buck deer and I know he's he's really close by that charges it even more and you hear a snap in the woods in you know he's coming in that sense the vent his reputation is very and then there's he steps into view and then there's the challenge of making making a clean kill. Am I good enough to hold the rifle steady and put the bullet where it's supposed to go and the skill that goes along with that because you've been practicing it and working on it since you were a kid and it happens and that is drilling a charge to watching watching the and we'll go down in the scope and then you walk up on the animal and his dead you and that's the deflated moment. There is there is a moment there when I think any any real hunter says.

"I'm Multidisciplinary poet Teaching artist and a community organizer. You're right now. We're sitting in my home in what I call the out the road of downtown Juneau so still walking distance but kind of away from the beaten path a little bit looking at the water you get the clouds clinging to the side of these pine covered mountains. I can't imagine ever getting tired of this view. Yeah I think things in our lives are generally a little bit cloudy so I'm a little bit of partly cloudy Weather Myself I grew up in. Juneau was born Korea but It was raised here moved a little for a little while. Went to school down South You know fell in love did that was there for a little bit and then return to Juno ten years ago you know I was pregnant so I think when you're a pregnant you just really want to go home and then when I got here I just immediately tried to start bringing back the parts that had felt home to me in Minnesota which is just come from so that I could have the best of both worlds in the same space. Kindred post is an idea the born out of the. What was the historically downtown post office space closing about six years ago? I'm the daughter of a lifelong postal. Employees actually retired as the postmaster. And so I've always had appreciation for the postal service. And I think so. You know when I really thought about what a post offices I feel like at the heart of it is connection right. It's about sending something to somebody else. And somebody else receiving it and so I opened kindred posts and we've continued to be a post office where we offer mail services by stance packages and all of that But but when I opened kinder- posts it felt like a really natural thing to also invite a lot of poetry events into the space. When you're Brown son tells you over dinner? He thinks he's ugly. mm-hmm when you stutter on your own memories when you reach for him a table and a canyon away.
"So it was interesting engineering business since we worked for insurance we really crossed all industry verticals I mean I've worked cases in Nolan gas or cases in math in healthcare where cases and financial services really across the board what you find is the process same regardless of the industry and there's only a few different nuances as you as you get into it so I I like to say industry agnostic but there's definitely some places I've got more depth of knowledge and others for sure cool and what's your focus today are you consulting or training them yeah I'm working with a really good friend of mine here in San Antonio she's got a it's a major consulting and technology shop so were you know were basically helping people get more efficient leaning on technology obviously to these as the talent pool is shrinking and so figuring out how we can leverage technology not necessarily people and then also the management consoles the changing of the business processes result of that so and what got you into sales oh man playing golf really yeah yeah I was a I played college high school and College Golf and NFL professionally for a couple of years after I graduate school and was working part time at a club down in south Texas and got to know a member pretty well and he said he found out about a business marketing degree and he said I want to hire you into my engineering company and then I want you to learn what we do and then I want you to go sell it I said I'm Professional Golfer man forget all that business stuff and he just kept Africa back about six months later I finally caved and you know it's been a whirlwind ever since and what do you like about it you know I mean I love the business world because I ended up getting into the NBA at night when I was working full-time And so everything I look at now look at like a case study and so it's just I I look at everything objectively from Santa what in years broken what could be improved on what can we do to make people's lives better and then I just actively worked every day to try to make that happen and so it's fun for me because you know businesses really today it's all about the people and I think what I've found in my life is that there are too many people that just exists and they don't actually ever strive to achieve anything really special and I think what what it is incumbent upon us as leaders is who identify what's really cool and special about a person and build an environment where we can nurture and develop that talent to come out of it you know my favorite story is I I hired a guy at a curved it was a fire Marshall and that's all I can make you a Rockstar in Latin America and he didn't see for himself at the time but it took me about three and a half years and he's actually now my old CEO's when I sold I made him CEO by Mexican Company and so take a guy that was making thirty five thousand dollars years are Marshall impervious to now you know being the CEO of major international operation on a Mexico making a buck five that changes his world forever and so I believe that you know as a from a leadership perspective if we can have that sort of impact on people's lives they were be were blessed to be a blessing well we'll take us through that journey how did you get him from even probably not believing that he could do it too normally believing he could do it to doing it so I think first and foremost our I always relate to the idea of developing employees to just like raisin kids right so I've got the he was two at the time when we sold a now he's six I gotta level in like crazy they they have no that they can trust you they have to know that you have their best interest I parts and they have to see what you do every day in your actions that are designed to promote them and take them door they also wanna go and so you know my job was really just the cheerleader early on guys guys we got this incredible opportunity in Latin America it's untapped it's taking we gotta go is going to do it if you're willing to go with men I will I will make it happen for us and so it was never made saying hey you go get it done it was me saying hey guys let's go and I would fly down there with them we go meet with prospects early on absolutely we didn't have that much work yet we beat the drum we tell everybody you know here's what we're doing here's our here's our doing it and we started to pick you know we started generate some interest a lot of teaching and training early on because technologist on them that they need in Latin America but they don't have and frankly you know timing always works in mysterious ways now say got as planned for everything so I was down in Monterrey Mexico in the stories are right about my notebook is as meeting with this Rico which basically is a staff attorney for the large insurance company down there and he I was explaining to him back then it was in broken Spanish because I didn't speak Spanish very well back then he's doing what we do and he succeeded forensic Tana said yes sir said hold on a minute he comes back out with his file he shows me these pictures of this deadly and he says here's the story so we had this guy that divorced twice married a secretary bought a two and a half million dollar license insurance policy on her ten days later she slips falls and dies in the bathroom were the insurance company and of course we're suspicious with the medical examiner's report says the cause of death is undetermined so now we're on the hook for the two and a half million dollars can you help and I said you know I said it's really funny answered that's normally not exactly what we do said but I just happen to hire a guy that's a Puerto Rican orange near out of two million university in Louisiana and he speaks from Puerto Rico and I think we can probably work you know help you out on this thing so we fly down to Monterey we measure the bathroom we build reading model we start analyzing all the marks body and put them in you know where where he basically beater in the bathroom and so fast forward we testify and Mexican court that he killed his wife the judge rules in our favor which means insurance companies don't have to pay the policy the governor of New Wave Leone which is a state around Monterey reopened the criminals association and the Guy In jail so this all the newspapers in Mexico and we became almost celebrities overnight in the interesting because the insurance companies never win those kind of cases down there and so when I went to Mexico City a few months later they're like oh you're that guy and so we started this started this whirlwind for us and you know I was down there in Juneau five and October Hurricane Wilma hits Cancun and so the property Vice President calls me and says him what you know about segregating hurricane damage from pre existing damage because as everybody knows in the insurance business you know you'd let your property you don't do preventive maintenance on him you let him you know Kinda K into form and then when a bigger incomes you wanNA completely remodeled upon insurance money and that's not exactly how politics listen work and so he said well what do you know about separating out these types of they haven't Jessica what he said we'll come on down to Cancun so then we spent eight months in Cancun and so that started just our whirlwind journey back you know five of you know a bunch of were all over Latin America all through Minnesota. RT Colombia Chile I mean we did we did earthquake in Chile in twenty eleven on we did a bunch of other one off projects refineries in Uruguay and so it was just so much fun for me with the guys that are hired it really put them in the best position for them to be successful like the guy from curb ill- because he his family is actually from just outside a month today so he was perfectly bilingual and it really put him in a position we could maximize his talents and skills always say that for everybody just like in sales wherever your passion skills in profitability meat that's an ideal situation where you can draw circle around it and so that's what I try to do with people every they is what's really cool and unique about you and happen we build an environment and put you in a position to get you ultimately where we think you could be of most effects and what do you look for in people the people that you work for and work with well the nice thing about you know now being retired you know the pressures off so you can be very choosy I'll look for you know there's a there's a popular performance management out there that says the vast majority of people give eighty five percent oh they're hypotheticals I like people that are wanting to do something more than they are doing today that are willing to stretch and they're willing to be adventurous rightly said I had those guys went down a Latin America that was protein to build a company down there the unknown I mean you hear all the stories about kidnappings and how dangerous is down there and here I am six foot That speak Spanish you know going into a lot of these places so everybody always asks well we're scared it's like well no it was more for me it was an adventure I mean I had a bunch of life insurance on me and I had a five million dollars in policies. I really didn't have to worry about anything but it was like go down there and get it done you know I look for people that are adventurous in their soul in wanted wanted US something that they haven't already got you know when you're selling to clients what's your approach well you know it's funny I've taken probably he sticks or seventy oh sales training curriculums of course years the Challenger sale and spin sale ending and you know Barry Ryan selling to curiosity and you know Miller hyman method and all that good have to develop enough credibility where they're like okay you obviously know enough about our world that I can tell you what's really going on here so once you get to the truth of the matter you find that there's opportunity to this every day probably ninety four out of five that that beat something I can do for and so it just a total rethinking of how the how the sales engagement really should work but that's just the way that I believe well I I think it's good if you have that right and

Ellen Page claims Mike Pence's politics might have led to reported attack on Jussie Smollett
"So let's begin with Ellen page Ellen page. Famous actress in Juneau, she was in inception. And she is also very vocal advocate because she's a lesbian, and she was unstable Kobe show last night, and she's talking about the jussie smollet alleged attack jussie smollet alleged attack because we still have no actual evidence. Other than Jesse smell at saying things then attack ever took place right now. The original report was small at an actor on empire, gay and black. He says that he went out to some coffee shop in the middle of the night to AM, and he was walking on the mean streets of Chicago. When suddenly he was accosted by two men who proceeded to throw a rope around his neck throw bleach on him and shouted him that this was mad country. Now, the police only were called to the scene some forty minutes later after he was in his apartment when they arrived at his apartment. He was still wearing the rope around his neck. He his manager came forward and said, I heard the attack on the phone and the police said, okay? Well, can we look at your phone? So that we can even see whether you guys were on the phone at the time and smell it refused to turn over his phone. There's no report he originally reported that he broke his read. There's no report from any medical source that he actually in fact broke his ribs that are a lot of open questions about what whether this attack happened at all if it did what it was how it went down. There's video of him leaving the store where it was at two AM. There's video of him one minute later entering his building with the rope around his neck, but there is no actual video of any of these incidents in between despite the fact that there are apparently hundreds of cameras in the area. Chicago PD has been canvassing hundreds of hours of video. And so far they have found nothing nothing. So who's fault is this alleged attack, according to Ellen page? It is not the fault of the people who committed the attack if the attack indeed occurred the way small it said it happened again, no evidence that that's true. But if she let's assume the attack and stroke, whose fault is it Ellen page has an answer. It's Mike Pence's fault. Now, I know you're sitting there going really vice president of the United States was out there in the middle of the polar vortex at three AM in Chicago in the middle of January attacking random black actor from show. He probably doesn't watch that makes perfect sense. Well, that's not what you means lets. She means that Mike Pence Pence's means of the gays, and because Mike Pence's means the gays that means other people are means of the gays and therefore Mike Pence must be okay. With other people actually committing an alleged hate crime against a gay black man now that sounds insane to you. That's because it is fully indeed crazy it is. It is totally nuts. And yet this was taken as a bit of gospel truth on Stephen Colbert, awful awful, late night show here is Ellen page making this case sales impossible. I feel this way right now president and the vice President Mike Pence who wish I couldn't be married. Let's just be clear. Connect the dots. This is what happens if you're in a position of power, and you hate people, and you want to cause suffering to them you go through the trouble, you spend your career trying to cause suffering. What do you think is going to

The The common common challenge challenge all all these these models models still still face face though though is is the the lack lack of of range range that that could could be be about about to to to source source change. However, it's difficult to increase the range on an electric motorcycle to achieve that you need a bigger battery capable of storing, more energy, bigger battery means bigger frame and easy equation that results in a bulky, electric power train. At this point you might as well throw in a few. Hugh more wheels for balance, steering wheel for good measure and call it now. I don't know a car, a group of engineering students from the university of Zurich in Switzerland has actually managed to produce a one off. Motorcycle with a staggering electric range of two hundred and fifty miles. In addition to the range, the bike has a built in quick charge system that can top off its battery in about an hour. The prototype was designed for a school project that challenged the fourteen students to experience all the steps of product development. The result is the all electric ethic. The design is pretty brutal, but it serves its purpose. The mono body unit is a quipped with a massive, lithium ion fifteen kilowatt hour battery. The group explains that the front wheel, braking, dissipate seventy five percent of the energy. So it addressed this reality by adding a front wheel hub motor that will recall. Operate the energy that's dissipated despite its minimalistic look and it's a labyrinth technology. The ethic does retain more classical motorcycle elements, including a lightweight to frame a proper swing arm and a trapezoidal fork out the front of it. Obviously, at this point, there is no talk of production, but the students in Genuity could definitely find some real world applications after all would be easy to market at electric. Motorcycle with the two hundred and fifty mile range, which is more than most gasoline models can travel right now. Hopefully we'll get to see this idea make its way to production. Just please let a design student have a go at it as well. Hyperloop transport faces, many, many hurdles, but until now, how cows can cross the track hasn't really been one of them, but that's going to change as Canadian company. Trans pod sets up its testing facility in a village deep in the French countryside. The current record for high-speed t GV trains could be shattered in the tiny commune of drove in central France. Last week. The company applied for planning permission, which it expects to be granted sometime this year. Hyperloop technology much publicized by Ilan. Musk's enthusiasm involves putting passengers or goods in capsules, which are then projected through depressurized tubes at up to twelve hundred kilometers an hour in their search for the perfect test zone. Transplants researchers hit on the Perez to Lou corridor, which. Has no high speed rail line, but they identified eight, three kilometers stretch of an old now, disused railway passing through farmland transplants, founder and chief executive told, euro news that the project has the backing of both residents and local authorities, but admits they've had to build some quirky demands into their planning application. For example, a farmer who has land on either side of the line wanted them to develop a pathway for animals as little. As you're ago Gendron the founder said that he doubted that anyone in Europe would want to invest in hyperloop technology. Now, investors have committed sixty five million euros transport. Also plans to build a research and development center in southern Italy got some spare time this weekend. Why not build yourself a working Rover from plants provided by NASA, the space Knicks at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory have all the plans. Code and materials for you to pursue and use. Just make sure you've got an extra twenty five hundred bucks and a bit of engineering know how this thing isn't made out of Lincoln logs. The story is this after curiosity landed on Mars, GPO wanted to create something a little smaller and less complex that it could use for educational purposes. So they created rove e. That's what they're calling it anyway. Traveled with GPL staff throughout the country and showed off what it was capable of unsurprisingly. Among the many questions asked was often whether a class group could actually built one of their very own. The answer unfortunately was no though far less expensive and complex than a real Mars Rover. Roe v was still too expensive and complex to be a class project. So GPL engineers decided to go back to the drawing board and build one that was less. Expensive. The result is the JPL open source Rover may set of plans that mimic the key components of curiosity, but are simpler and use off the shelf components. The OS are uses curiosity like suspension corner, steering and pivot differential, allowing movement over rough terrain and the brain is a raspberry pi.

WalMart supercenter really isn't much fun, but what if you could do it from the comfort of your own home through virtual reality, the world's biggest retailer wants to find out according to filings with the US patent and trademark office. The company has applied for two patents that detail a virtual showroom and fulfillment center that would connect shoppers clad in VR headsets and censor packed gloves to a three dimensional representation of a WalMart. Store customers could wander digital aisles from home and grab items, which would be immediately picked up and shipped from a fully automated distribution center. The filing is part of WalMart's recent push into virtual reality and area that holds promise for brick and mortar retailers struggling with the massive costs associated with store upkeep and labor. This could be a godsend in February the retailer acquired spatial land a startup that makes software tools to create virtual reality experiences. Spatial land is housed inside walmarts in house tech incubator store number eight, which last year hosted a v. commerce gala in Los Angeles, Agadi affair by WalMart standards that celebrated the five Witters of WalMart competitions to find the best ideas in the space. WalMart is moving aggressively into the digital realm at the same time that Amazon and other technology. He companies are looking to establish a brick and mortar presence. Amazon acquired whole foods market last year and is also opening cashier 'less stores. While Google is planning a retail flagship store in Chicago. WalMart has filed more than a dozen virtual reality patents. But it's focus has shifted from using VR for internal business, say virtual conference calls to more external shopper focused applications. You used any of the portable bluetooth speakers on the market? A have gone through several over the years myself, but they all left me fairly unimpressed with both be sound and their battery life. I've had all portable bluetooth speakers in the same category. It's a great way to share your music on the go, but they're only slightly better than the mono speaker phone on most smartphones. Now I'm revising that thought in recommending the j. b. l. flip Ford. Not only does this compact portable bluetooth speakers sound also, but it has a rock in battery life that seems to keep getting better with testing on top of that. It's completely waterproof and I don't mean water resistant. No, I'm talking dunk. Your head underwater, sit there with a snorkel and submerge your speaker to enjoy all your favorite music is heard by dolphins waterproof. This thing is absolutely incr-. Credible. I was a radio engineer for several years and win. I needed speakers. I always turn to JBL. Their sound is always exceptional with base. You can feel even in their smallest monitor speakers for studios. The flip four holds true to the JBL sound even with its microscopic size. It's smaller than your insulated coffee mug, but weighs in at one point, one pounds. It has a three thousand middle amp hour battery that JBL says, can last for twelve hours. Now intesting I was able to use it for thirteen to fifteen hours depending on how loud it was. And the performance seemed to get a little better. Each time I recharge the device with the first test going just twelve and a half hours thirteen on the second and fifteen on the third. Now, it's very hard to test a speaker at full volume with for twelve hours, especially when you're married and have the kid. But I would. -magine if you did play the flip four at full volume that it would actually last, it's twelve hours specified. world. world.

Juno Becomes World's First Graphene Skinned Plane
"The recent Farnborough airshow 2018, aerospace engineers from Britain's university of central land casher presented what they stayed is the world's first graphene skinned aircraft known as the Juneau the three point five meter wide unmanned plane could be a sign of things to come developed in partnership with the Sheffield, advanced manufacturing research centre, the university of Manchester's national graphing institute. And hi, Dale graphing industries, judo additionally, features graphing based batteries and three d. printed components. It's skin, though is where the real action is consisting of one atom thick layers of linked carbon atoms. Graphene is not only the world's strongest man made material, but it also is high. Highly conductive both thermally and electrically because it's so strong. An outer covering of it adds strength to conventional fuselage material, which then allows for less of those materials to be used leading to significant wheat reductions. And as a result aircraft, incorporating such skins could carry heavier payloads without using more fuel or fly for longer distances on a given amount of fuel. Additionally, because graphing thermal conductivity allows heat to spread throughout the material. It's not prone to ice build up. And finally, the electrical conductivity of graphene causes the energy of lightning strikes to be dispersed throughout the surface of the fuselage as opposed to causing damage throughout localized heating in one area. Not much else is known at this time except engineers planned to conduct tests flights of Juneau over the next two months. And of course keep you updated. As soon as I hear
