Watch live Saturday: SpaceX launching Starlink satellites @ 10:54 am ET

SpaceX is targeting Saturday, July 11 at 10:54 a.m. EDT, 14:54 UTC, for launch of its tenth Starlink mission, which will include 57 Starlink satellites and 2 satellites from BlackSky, a Spaceflight customer. Falcon 9 will lift off from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
Falcon 9’s first stage previously supported Crew Dragon’s first demonstration mission to the International Space Station, launch of the RADARSAT Constellation Mission, and the fourth and seventh Starlink missions. Following stage separation, SpaceX will land Falcon 9’s first stage on the “Of Course I Still Love You” droneship, which will be stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.
You can watch the launch webcast here, starting about 15 minutes before liftoff. If you would like to receive updates on Starlink news and service availability in your area, please visit starlink.com.
The BlackSky Global spacecraft will deploy sequentially beginning 1 hour and 1 minute after liftoff, and the Starlink satellites will deploy approximately 1 hour and 32 minutes after liftoff. Starlink satellites will be deployed in a circular orbit, as was done on the first through fourth Starlink missions. Additionally, all Starlink satellites on this flight are equipped with a deployable visor to block sunlight from hitting the brightest spots of the spacecraft – a measure SpaceX has taken as part of our work with leading astronomical groups to mitigate satellite reflectivity.
Find out what the astronauts and cosmonauts aboard the International Space Station are up to by tuning in to the “ISS Live” broadcast. Hear conversations between the crew and mission controllers on Earth and watch them work inside the U.S. segment of the orbiting laboratory. When the crew is off duty, you can enjoy live views of Earth from Space. You can watch and listen in the window below, courtesy of NASA.
“Live video from the International Space Station includes internal views when the crew is on-duty and Earth views at other times. The video is accompanied by audio of conversations between the crew and Mission Control. This video is only available when the space station is in contact with the ground. During ‘loss of signal’ periods, viewers will see a blue screen.
“Since the station orbits the Earth once every 90 minutes, it experiences a sunrise or a sunset about every 45 minutes. When the station is in darkness, external camera video may appear black, but can sometimes provide spectacular views of lightning or city lights below.”

Nice Anti-Racism Campaigns, F1. Now Drop Baku and Bahrain

​Disclaimer
​Back
L
L
In light of the social uproar following the killing of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police, Formula One has been thrust into the spotlight by its only Black driver: Lewis Hamilton. The six-time world champion has been increasingly vocal about combating racism in the sport and in the world writ large, and he’s used the Black Lives Matter movement as inspiration for Mercedes-AMG’s new racing livery for the shortened 2020 season. In recent days, F1’s parent company Liberty Media also launched the “We Race as One” initiative and created a task force to “fight against any form of discrimination.”
It’s possible F1 is waking up a bit. But while the steps it is taking to advocate for social change are commendable, the sport needs to look within its own house and also address its own controversial races in places like Azerbaijan and Bahrain.
F1 is a complex thing, and how it makes its money is even more so. At the top, you have the circus owners, the likes of Liberty Media now (formerly Bernie Ecclestone, and a whole other essay could be devoted to him alone.) In the middle, you have the racing teams, and at the bottom, you have racing drivers who are willing to do almost anything to win. At a team level, drivers usually turn a blind eye to many questionable practices that ultimately fund the squads, such as sponsorships from corporate monopolies or less-than-desirable investors.


After all, getting two F1 cars and an entire team of people around the globe for the majority of a year isn’t cheap-it costs anywhere from $130 to $410 million per season.

At a sport level, however, things become more transparent, and therefore more bizarre. While it’s not that hard for a team like McLaren to hide individual sponsors behind corporation names, etc., it’s much harder for Liberty Media to hide the fact that it collects generous sums of money from some of the most corrupt governments in the world in exchange for hosting a race. How about Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Russia, China?
Chase Carey, Chairman and CEO of the world’s second most-watched sport, may claim that “Formula 1 needs to be more inclusive and diverse” and go as far as donating $1 million of his personal money to a foundation effectively established by his own company (how’s that for generosity?), but the truth is that he’s undermining all of these lukewarm initiatives by continuing to exchange money with some very dirty and bloody hands. Even worse, Liberty Media has yet to highlight the steps its initiative will take to improve diversity, or how exactly it will use the money it receives.

Outside of the track.
One of the newest jewels of the F1 season is the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, which takes place in the capital city of Baku. Azerbaijan is one of the world’s worst offenders in human rights. According to Human Rights Watch and other various reports, Azerbaijani authorities freely and frequently imprison and torture activists, journalists, political dissidents and anyone else caught speaking out against the regime. “While criticizing the increasing crackdown, Azerbaijan’s international partners have failed to set conditions for future cooperation that will help secure rights improvements,” the organization says.


Imagine if there were a big, lucrative sport that could apply such pressure. If only one existed!
Things aren’t any better in the Kingdom of Bahrain, where its human and civil rights situation is described as “dire” by the 2020 World Human Rights Report. The country’s long list of atrocities includes executing people who haven’t had a chance to undergo proper trials, jailing everyone who opposes the ruling regime, and outright banning all independent media.


While countries like Russia and China are slightly “less evil” to the naked eye, let’s not forget that billions of people live under constant fear and oppression under power-hungry and power-rich governments that threaten to take whatever little rights they have. Let’s not forget for one second that in these count…

Rimac C_Two Will Teach You How To Be A Better Driver Using AI

So you own a fantastic hypercar, drive it to your local supercar meets, maybe do some weekend trips with it, but you don’t actually have the chance to extract more performance out of it. A track day is too daunting, and some actual high-performance driving lessons can’t seem to fit into a busy schedule? Rimac is coming up with an amazing way that customers can actually communicate with their cars. No, we’re not talking about voice commands or digital assistants; we’re talking about actual feedback and encouragement. Pioneered by Rimac’s autonomous driving division, “Driver Coach” is essentially an artificial intelligence that analyzes tons of data to give you the best way to extract performance on the track. The best part? It can also drive for you.


Rimac’s upcoming C_Two has some breathtaking numbers – 1,887 horsepower and a sub-2 second 0 to 62 mph time. There’s a lot of power there to get you into trouble in the wrong hands, but there’s also a lot of potential to get the most out of your hypercar experience. Top Gear has been talking with Sacha Vrazic, director of Rimac’s autonomous driving team, about this interesting concept. “What we are building is a system where AI plays a key role in teaching the driver how to perform on racetracks, at the maximum vehicle performance,” Sacha explains. “Not all of our customers are professional drivers, but we want them to really enjoy the car and have fun with it.”
The system uses a supercomputer to analyze and store six terabytes of data every hour, gathered from nine onboard cameras, LIDAR, radar, and 12 ultrasonic sensors. Algorithms take care of all the number-crunching to give drivers the most dynamic and personalized experience. Heck, it can even determine if the driver’s fear takes over at a braking point after a very long and fast straight, and recommends a new approach by maybe braking earlier to reduce that anxiety, or being able to take over and show the diver how it’s done. All of this while it talks to you as it learns the track, and keeps you safe by correcting any driving errors as they happen on the fly.


Also, the system is able to react to other vehicles and objects in real-time, unlike autonomous GPS track cars that are programmed at specific points. “We used professional drivers of course, to help us understand the ideal lap, but the AI can compute a perfect lap as well,” Sacha tells us. “Then we put the pro driver lap and what we consider as our (the AI) lap on top of each other, and see the difference. That’s a big part.”
All of this will be standard on the Rimac C_Two when it is finally launched.
