Crypto nerds are trying to buy the U.S. Constitution, because of course they are


On Thursday, November 18, Sotheby’s is auctioning off “an exceptionally rare and extraordinarily historic” first printing of the U.S. Constitution. Only thirteen copies remain, besides the one located in Washington D.C.’s National Archives museum, from the original printing of 500 that the founders issued for submission to the Continental Congress. It’s the first time in 30 years that this one has become available for purchase, following the 1997 death of its last winner, New York real estate developer S. Howard Goldman. It’s expected to fetch between $15 million and $20 million in the auction—unless, of course, it instead fetches the equivalent in Ethereum.

Liquid-to-vapor-cooled cable beats the heat for 5-minute EV charging


Limiting how long electric vehicles need to be plugged in for before returning to the road is an important factor in driving their adoption, and much research focuses on reducing these charging times. A new advance leverages an alternative cooling technology to take the heat out of the charging cable, allowing it to handle the type of current needed to charge up an electric car in under five minutes.

Space Force satellite jammers would shut down enemy communications temporarily


WASHINGTON — U.S. military officials and analysts have warned that China and Russia are building an arsenal of weapons designed to interfere with space-based capabilities of the United States.

The United States meanwhile is building its own capabilities to counter enemies’ space assets. Most of those systems are classified but the Space Force has made public its plans to deploy advanced electronic jammers to disrupt enemies’ satellite communications signals.

Starbucks links with Amazon Go for first cashier-less cafe


NEW YORK, Nov 18 (Reuters) - Starbucks Corp's (SBUX.O) newest cafe lacks one element most customers are used to seeing: cashiers.

The global coffee chain on Thursday opened its first ever location in partnership with Amazon Go (AMZN.O), the e-commerce giant's brick-and-mortar convenience store, where customers can sit at a table with a latte or grab a sandwich from a shelf and walk out.

Visualizing the Race for EV Dominance


Tesla has reigned supreme among electric car companies, ever since it first released the Roadster back in 2008.

The California-based company headed by Elon Musk ended 2020 with 23% of the EV market and recently became the first automaker to hit a $1 trillion market capitalization. However, competitors like Volkswagen hope to accelerate their own EV efforts to unseat Musk’s company as the dominant manufacturer.

First electric autonomous cargo ship launched in Norway


Zero emissions and, soon, zero crew: the world's first fully electric autonomous cargo vessel was unveiled in Norway, a small but promising step toward reducing the maritime industry's climate footprint.

By shipping up to 120 containers of fertilizer from a plant in the southeastern town of Porsgrunn to the Brevik port a dozen kilometres (about eight miles) away, the much-delayed Yara Birkeland, shown off to the media on Friday, will eliminate the need for around 40,000 truck journeys a year that are now fuelled by polluting diesel.
