Back to the Future 1:1 Scale Hoverboard

Time traveling to 2015 and back is only the beginning of the adventures found in Back to the Future Part II. The coolest part…was finding the hoverboard! And now the future is finally here and you can have a hoverboard of your own! This replica prop is an exact recreation from the one seen in Back to the Future II. Sure, it doesn't truly hover (come on scientists!) but carrying it around will let everyone know that you've just come back... from the future! Just don't try to use it on water!

Sentinel 2 B Satellite Launch on March 6th - Techwie

LAUNCH OF SENTINEL 2 B ON MARCH 6TH


Sentinel 2

LAUNCH OF THE SENTINEL 2 B SATELLITE 

Sentinel 2 LAUNCH IN A NUTSHELL:

  • After the launch of the Guiana Space Center, the motor phase of the first three stages of Vega will last 6 minutes, 32 seconds.
  • After this first phase, the third stage of the launcher will separate from the upper composite.
  • Which includes the upper stage AVUM, a payload adapter and the satellite.
  • The three lower stages will fall into the sea.
  • The upper stage AVUM switches on its engine for the first time, operating for about 7 minutes.
  • Followed by a ballistic phase of about 40 minutes.
  • The AVUM stage will then restart its motor for about 2 minutes.
  • Before releasing the Sentinel-2B satellite about one minute after the engine stops.

Advantages:

  • Sentinel-2B will serve a wide range of terrestrial surface and coastal zone applications.
  • This mission provides information on agricultural and forestry practices.
  • To help manage food security.
  • Satellite images will be used to determine various plant indices
  • Such as the chlorophyll content of the leaf area and the water content indices.
  • This is particularly important for efficient prediction of yield and applications
  • And related to the vegetation of the Earth.
  • In addition to monitoring plant growth, Sentinel-2 can be used to map changes in soil cover.
  • And to monitor the world’s forests.
Examples of applications:
  • Monitoring of land cover change for environmental monitoring.
  • Agricultural applications, such as crop monitoring and management to support food security.
  •  Detailed monitoring of vegetation and forests and generation of parameters eg: leaf area index, chlorophyll concentration, carbon mass estimates.
  •  Observation of coastal areas monitoring of the marine environment, mapping of coastal areas.
  • Inland water monitoring.
  • Monitoring of glaciers, mapping of ice extent, monitoring of snow cover.
  •  Flood management and mapping, risk analysis, loss assessment, disaster management during floods.
  • The Sentinel Monitoring Web application provides a simple way to view.
  • And analyze land changes based on archived Sentinel-2 data.
