CGTN: Chinese astronauts’ talk with Earth from space

BEIJING, June 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The three Chinese astronauts, in China’s space station core module since June 17, made their first long-distance phone conversation with the Earth on Wednesday.

Nie Haisheng (56), Liu Boming (54) and Tang Hongbo (45) are now stationed at the core module Tianhe, some 380 kilometers above the Earth. This marks China’s longest manned space mission to date, and the first since 2016.

On Wednesday, Chinese President Xi Jinping sent out greetings to three astronauts via video link, congratulating their successful entering into the station while thanking them for their work.

“How’s life there,” Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission, asked the trio about their health, life and work, who had their feet temporarily strapped to the floor of the module during the conversation due to the zero-gravity situation in the outer space.

“Thank you for your concern, general secretary! We are in great physical condition, and our space work is going on smoothly,” said Nie, the mission’s commander.

Xi hails China’s space mission

“Building a space station is an important milestone for China’s spaceflight cause,” Xi said in the televised chat.

“This will be a contribution that opens new horizons for humanity’s peaceful use of space. You are the representatives of countless fighters in the new era of China’s spaceflight cause,” he said.

The longest stay in space so far by Chinese astronauts had been 33 days.

“In previous missions, we sent water and oxygen to space along with astronauts. But for a stay of three to six months, water and oxygen would stuff the cargo craft full with no room for other necessary goods and materials. So we installed the core module with a new life support system to recycle urine, exhaled breath condensate (EBC) and carbon dioxide,” Bai Linhou, deputy chief designer of the space station at the China Academy of Space Technology (CAST) told Xinhua in an earlier interview.

The Tianhe core module, where the three astronauts are currently stationed, has a total length of 16.6 meters, a maximum diameter of 4.2 meters and a takeoff mass of 22.5 tonnes. It is the largest spacecraft developed and launched by China.

It is set to help China’s aerospace engineers carry out the verification of key technologies, including flexible solar wings, in-orbit assembly and maintenance, and above all a new life support system.

With five launch missions done this year, China plans six more missions, including the launch of the Wentian and Mengtian lab modules, two cargo spacecraft and two manned spaceships, in 2022 to complete the construction of the space station.

Chinese officials say the new space station will not just be for Chinese, but to be open to the world.

Foreign astronauts and global cooperation on scientific experiments are most welcome to China’s space station, Hao Chun, director of China Manned Space Engineering Office, said in an interview with CGTN.

‫مؤسسة ترانسيد: انطلاق مبادرة للتشجيع على ارتداء خوذة السلامة بين ركاب الدراجات البخارية

نيروبي، كينيا 23 يونيو/حزيران 2021 /وكالة أنباء بي آر إن نيوزوير/ — تعتزم الجهات المعنية بجمهورية تأسيس اتحاد وطني لمرتدي خوذات الدراجات البخارية في إطار جهود ضخمة لتعزيز سلامة سائقي وركاب الدرجات البخارية ووسائل النقل الآلية ثلاثية العجلات (التكاتك). تستند المبادرة إلى ما أظهرته نتائج بعض الأبحاث من فوائد خوذات الدراجات البخارية في تقليل مخاطر الوفاة بنسبة 42% والحد من مخاطر إصابات الرأس بنسبة 69% في حوادث الطرق.

أُعلن اليوم عن المشروع الذي يأتي في إطار برنامج توفير خوذات أمان ميسورة التكلفة الذي أطلقه الاتحاد الدولي للسيارات (FIA) – والذي شهد تصنيع خوذة دراجات بخارية مبتكرة عالية الجودة تتوافق مع معيار السلامة رقم 22.05 المعتمد من الأمم المتحدة، كما أنها مريحة عند ارتدائها في الأجواء الحارة أو الرطبة، ويمكن الحصول عليها مقابل حوالي 20 دولار أمريكي.

ومن المقرر أن يقدم الاتحاد الدولي للسيارات، مؤسسة خيرية عالمية مستقلة تهتم بسلامة الطرق، الدعم المستمر للمبادرة، كما كلَّف الاتحاد مؤسسة ترنسيد (Transaid) بمشروع أولى مدته 18 أشهر لتكوين شبكة محلية من الأطراف المعنية للعمل على لتعزيز سلامة الطرق والحد من الإصابات على المستوى الوطني. وتُعد ترانسيد إحدى مؤسسات التنمية الدولية التي تتمتع بخبرة واسعة في مجال أمن سلامة قيادة الدرجات البخارية ووسائل النقل الآلية ثلاثية العجلات (التكاتك).

ويذكر سام كلارك، رئيس قسم البرامج بالمؤسسة: “يحرص كل من الاتحاد الدولي للسيارات والمؤسسة التابعة له على نشر برنامج توفير خوذات أمان ميسورة التكلفة على نطاق واسع، إذ نؤمن إيمانًا قويًا بأن تأسيس اتحاد وطني لمرتدي خوذات السلامة سيساهم في تحقيق تغير جذري. سنعمل في مسؤولي الحكومة والشرطة والمستشفيات والقطاع الخاص وجمعيات النقل والمجتمعات المحلية لتطوير حلول تساهم في تعزيز سلامة الرحلات الكينية.”

بينما أوضح كيفين موبادي، رئيس رابطة بودا بودا للسلامة (Boda Boda Safety Association) في كينيا: “يشكل مجالنا عنصرًا حيويًا متناميًا في نظام النقل والمواصلات الكيني، إلا أن التحدي المتمثل في صعوبة الحصول على خوذات أمان مناسبة وميسورة التكلفة يهدد بزيادة أعداد إصابات الرأس الخطيرة بين الركاب.”

“نحرص على أن يكون لنا دور ريادي في تأسيس اتحاد مرتدي الخوذات الوطني، كما نرحب بالتمويل المقدم من مؤسسة الاتحاد الدولي للسيارات لتطبيق هذه النهج متعدد القطاعات الذي التوعية بزيادة الحرص على ارتداء خوذات السلامة لضمان سلامة القيادة على الطرق الكينية.”

يستخدم أغلب سائقي الدرجات البخارية في كينيا، البالغ عددهم حوالي 1.4 مليون*، خوذات “بودا بودا” – ورغم وجود قوانين تجعل ارتداء خوذات الدراجات البخارية أمرًا إجباريًا، إلا أنه ثمة تفاوت في تطبيق هذه القوانين، كما ينخفض معدل استخدام خوذات السلامة بين السائقين.”

في حين يذكر، سول بيلنجسلي، المدير التنفيذي لمؤسسة الاتحاد الدولي للسيارات: “لطالما انخفضت نسبة استخدام خوذات سلامة ميسورة وعالية الجودة وتوفرها في البلدان ذات الدخل المنخفض والمتوسط مثل كينيا، ما يهدد بتعرض السائقين لإصابات خطيرة، خاصة إصابات الرأس. إذ تتسبب حوادث الدرجات البخارية ثنائية العجلات ووسائل النقل الآلية ثلاثية العجلات (التكاتك) أكثر من ربع حالات الوفاة بسبب حواث الطرق على مستوى العالم، والنسبة في زيادة متسارعة.

ومن المتوقع أن يسهم تأسيس اتحاد وطني لمرتدي خوذات السلامة، بدعم من مؤسسة ترانسيد، تدارك الحاجة إلى زيادة الوعي بسلامة الطرق بين الركاب مع إرساء أساس للتعاون متعدد القطاعات والمشاركة الفعالة من جانب من مؤسسات المجتمع المدني والمجتمعات المحلية.”

[غدًا] يلتقي رئيس الاتحاد الدولي للسيارات بالرئيس الكندي أوهور كينياتا لاستعراض الخوذات الجديدة وبحث عدد من الموضوعات المتعلقة بسلامة الطرق.

تُعد كينيا حاليًا من بين البلدان التي تشهد أعلى معدلات وفيات بسبب حوادث الطرق على مستوى القارة، بواقع 12,463* حالة وفاة خلال عام 2018.

المصدر: طبقًا لما ذكرته دائرة التسجيل والتراخيص بهيئة النقل والسلامة الوطنية (NTSA)، بلغ عدد الدراجات البخارية المسجلة في كينيا 1,393,290 دراجة في فبراير عام 2018.

BEIJING, June 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — China Media Group (CMG) and Kuaishou held a joint press conference officially announcing a short video strategic partnership on Tokyo 2020 Olympics Games and the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics. Kuaishou now holds the official broadcasting rights for Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics. Kuaishou is the first short video and live-streaming platform globally to become an official broadcaster of the Olympics Games.

Su Hua, CEO of Kuaishou Technology, emphasised at the conference that Kuaishou remains true to its beginning aspirations of recording and sharing life stories. He also notes that it’s an honor for Kuaishou to be able to document and enjoy the Olympic Games with all users. As a pioneer since 2011,  Kuaishou has provided internet users globally the opportunity to record and share their life stories. The platform witnessed the growth and development of various aspects of society and gradually became a base for modern day social media platforms. Presently Kuaishou has 1 billion monthly active users from all around the globe. People from different countries of varying ages and diverse lifestyles get to interact with and learn from each other. Kuaishou was chosen as its principles and communities are in alignment with the spirit of the Olympic Games.

Su also mentioned that Kuaishou’s multiple successful partnerships with CMG has allowed for Kuaishou to explore new ways to allow users to enjoy a more convenient participation experience for large scale events.

For the Olympic Games partnership, Kuaishou announced plans to make use of its unique product capabilities and technological expertise to create a series of interactive features that can allow users to participate virtually as part of the Olympics. At the same time, Kuaishou is committed to improve its promotional methods of the games, to explore different angles of capturing the games and ensure full coverage of all events.

‫تُقدم شركة Space Perspective الرائدة أول تجربة رحلات فاخرة إلى الفضاء في العالم حتى تُعيد تخيل إثارة استكشاف الفضاء

يعرض الإطلاق التجريبي لسفينة الفضاء نبتون وان في فلوريدا مناظر خلابة من الفضاء ويُنذر بفرصة لحجز مقعدك الآن لعام 2024

نيويورك, 23 يونيو 2021 /وكالة أنباء PR/ — تقديم حقبة جديدة في تجارب السفر الفاخر: Space Perspective هي الرحلة الأكثر جمالًا في العالم إلى الفضاء. يمكن لمغامري السفر الآن حجز مقعد على سفينة الفضاء نبتون والاستمتاع بإطلالات بزاوية 360 درجة تطل على كوكب الأرض من ارتفاع 20 ميلاً/ 30 كم في رحلة فاخرة مدتها ست ساعات. يمكن لما يصل إلى ثمانية ضيوف الاستمتاع بكبسولة مجهزة بشكل جميل، ومزودة بـ بار وحمام، مقابل 125,000 دولار لكل منهما.

Dazzling views of Earth are now possible with the world's first luxury spaceflight experience from Space Perspective: image from successful inaugural test flight taken 18 June. Commercial flights on Spaceship Neptune depart from NASA's Kennedy Space Center from late 2024. Space Explorers will enjoy 360-degree views of our planet in total comfort on a gentle six-hour journey. Space Perspective is on a mission to invite more people than ever to ride the wave of space history.

عبر اتباع بنات أفكار خبراء السفر إلى الفضاء جين بوينتر وتابر ماك كالوم، تريد Space Perspective  أن يختبر المزيد من الأشخاص مناظر تغير الحياة من الفضاء والتي لم يكن الوصول إليها متاحًا حتى الآن إلا لرواد الفضاء – مما يجعل ذلك ممكنًا من خلال تطبيق تقنية الطيران التي تستخدمها ناسا على نطاق واسع لسنوات عديدة .

هذه الفرصة التحويلية، التي تتيح الحجوزات الآن للرحلات الجوية في وقت قريب في أواخر عام 2024، توسع من إمكانية استكشاف الفضاء لقطاع أكبر من الجمهور مما كان ممكنًا تاريخيًا. وللأشخاص الفضوليين حول استكشاف الفضاء الذين كانوا يعتبرون الأمر محفوفًا بالمخاطر أو باهظ التكلفة يمكنهم الآن تجربة سفر مليئة بالفرح إلى الفضاء بصعود آمن ولطيف. وتتمكن المركبة الفضائية الغير مسبوقة نبتون والتي تعمل بالضغط من نقل الركاب برفق إلى الفضاء لتعرض مناظر خلابة أثناء دورانها في منحنيات الأرض.

سيصعد مستكشفو الفضاء الذين يصنعون التاريخ في سفينة الفضاء نبتون من منصة الإطلاق في مركز كينيدي للفضاء الشهير. وسيُحلق ثمانية ضيوف، برفقة طيار، فوق 99٪ من الغلاف الجوي للأرض ثم ينحدرون لمدة ساعتين للاستمتاع بتجربة فريدة بالمحيط الحيوي لكوكبنا من نوافذ المشاهدة الواسعة للكبسولة المريحة.

على عكس الصواريخ الفضائية الشاقة والمكلفة ماديًا، تعيد المركبة الفضائية نبتون كتابة قواعد اللعبة الهندسية: فهي لا تستخدم الدفع الصاروخي ولا تسارع قوة الجاذبية.  تبعث على البهجة بحد ذاتها، هذه التجربة تدعو إلى منظور مختلف تمامًا عندما تأخذك خلال طبقات الغلاف الجوي، مؤطرًا بالخط الأزرق الرفيع أدناه وسواد الفضاء أعلاه. هذا التذكير العميق بمدى ارتباطنا مع جميع الكائنات الحية – وفقًا لمعظم رواد الفضاء الذين جربوه – يغير الحياة بشكل عميق؛ ويعمل على تلاشي الحدود والاختلافات.

سيتم تنظيم كل رحلة بشكل شخصي من خلال برامج توفر تجارب حسب الطلب من البداية إلى النهاية، بدءًا من لقاء رواد الفضاء المشاهير وحتى اصطحاب حفلات الزفاف إلى آفاق جديدة.

Space Perspective هي أول شركة إطلاق مركبات فضائية تطير من Space Coast Air وميناء فضائي، ويقعا بالقرب من مركز كينيدي للفضاء التابع لناسا في فلوريدا. بدأت رحلة اختبار نبتون وان الافتتاحية لبرنامج اختبار مكثف يجعل من سفينة الفضاء نبتون طريقة آمنة للغاية للسفر إلى الفضاء. تضمن Space Perspective السلامة من خلال تطبيق تكنولوجيا الطيران التي استخدمتها ناسا والهيئات الحكومية العالمية لعقود من الزمن، بدعم من طاقم عالمي تم اختياره بعناية كجزء لا يتجزأ من جميع رحلات بالون الفضاء البشرية على مدار الخمسين عامًا الماضية.

تسعى جين بوينتر وتابر ماك كالوم، الزوجان وراء فكرة Space Perspective، في مهمة لدعوة المزيد من الناس – بما في ذلك العلماء والفنانين –  لركوب موجة تاريخ الفضاء وتحويل وجه التاريخ من خلال رؤية أرضنا الجميلة من الفضاء.

 يعزي الفضل إلى الزوجين في الكشف عن بعض الإنجازات الأكثر بروزًا في مجال ابتكار واستكشاف الفضاء في العشرين عامًا الماضية: إتقان التقنيات التي شوهدت في محطة الفضاء الدولية، والعمل كمستشارين تقنيين في رحلات الفضاء البشرية التابعة لـ إيلون ماسك قبل تأسيسه لشركة سبيس إكس، وتحقيق الرقم القياسي العالمي للمدير التنفيذي لشركة جوجل آلان إيوستاس لرحلات الفضاء البشرية – 136,000 قدم مدفوعة بواسطة بالون فضاء في عام 2014.

السفر إلى الأماكن التي لم يسبق لها مثيل من قبل بإطار يُتيح الوصول إليها بالكامل، تضع Space Perspective معيارًا جديدًا في تجارب الرفاهية خارج هذا العالم. يُرجى زيارة لحجز مقعدك.

Space Perspective

Space Perspective هي تجربة السفر للفضاء الأكثر رفاهية في العالم. وهي تدعو أشخاصًا أكثر مما سبق على مدار التاريخ لتجربة منظور جديد ومثير للدهشة يعمل على توسيع أفاق الوعي البشري – عبر الصور البانورامية المبهجة بشكل لا يصدق وحجم الأرض من الفضاء. يمتد غلافنا الجوي لمئات الأميال في الفضاء، وتطير المركبة الفضائية نبتون لتغطي 99٪ منه.

تثبيت قدم جديدة في التجارب المثيرة خارج هذا العالم، بحلول أواخر عام 2024، سترافق Space Perspective مستكشفي الفضاء في رحلة سلسة إلى الفضاء داخل كبسولة نبتون التي تعمل بالضغط ويتم دفعها ببالون فضاء عالي الأداء ولا تعتمد على استخدام وقود الصواريخ، وسيتمكن المستكشفون من مشاهدة العالم من آفاق جديدة من خلال نوافذه الواسعة. تعيد الرحلة المريحة للغاية التي أصبحت في متناول الجميع والتي تستغرق ست ساعات تحديد معنى السفر إلى الفضاء والعجائب التي سيتمتع بها المسافر العصري.

انطلاقاً من مركز كينيدي للفضاء، سيقود رحلة Space Perspective جين بوينتر وتابر ماكالوم، النجمان البارزان في هذا المجال، وطاقمهما الخبير الذي كان جزءًا لا يتجزأ من جميع رحلات بالون الفضاء البشرية في الخمسين عامًا الماضية. أطلق على بوينتر وماكالوم لقب “سادة طبقة الاستراتوسفير” من قبل  بلومبيرغ بيزنس ويك، وشغل ماكالوم منصب رئيس اتحاد رحلات الفضاء التجارية.

Conformis, Inc. Announces Exclusive Distribution Agreement in China

New Agreement expands Conformis’ global reach and brings patient-specific knee replacement systems to the largest market in the Asia-Pacific region

BILLERICA, Mass., June 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Conformis, Inc. (NASDAQ:CFMS) today announced the execution of an agreement to enter the Asia-Pacific market through an exclusive distribution relationship with XR Medical Group (Hong Kong) Limited (XR Medical).

Under the distribution agreement, XR Medical will have exclusive rights for the sale, marketing, and distribution of Conformis’ patient-specific iTotal® CR & PS total knee replacement systems, iTotal® CR & PS patella devices, and iUni® and iDuo® partial knee replacement systems. Other products, such as Conformis’ recently approved Identity Imprint™ knee system and its hip portfolio of products, may be added in the future.

XR Medical’s sales team will provide sales and support exclusively to top-tier facilities in Hainan’s Boao Lecheng International Medical Tourism Pilot Zone (Pilot Zone) on behalf of Conformis. The region is a major center of medical tourism for dozens of countries.

“This distribution agreement is another example of progress as we execute our overall growth strategy. We are confident that our unique product portfolio will serve to accelerate Conformis’ international growth. And we are pleased to partner with XR Medical, which has an impressive track record of success in China,” said Mark Augusti, President and CEO of Conformis. “What is particularly attractive about XR Medical is its strong performance in the Pilot Zone. With access to patients visiting the region for treatment, this creates an opportunity to introduce a broad audience to the clinical benefits of Conformis technology. We believe that starting in the Pilot Zone positions us well and we anticipate that this relationship will serve as a model for future expansion opportunities in mainland China.”

The Pilot Zone is located on Hainan, a large island off China’s southern coast. It was established in 2019 to attract affluent Chinese citizens who might otherwise go abroad for their medical care. This region of China has developed top-level medical treatment facilities in a popular destination. Currently, medical tourists from dozens of countries, including those in Southeast Asia, are permitted to visit Hainan for a 30-day stay without visas.

The global market for knee joint reconstruction is projected at more than $9 billion. Of this total, the knee joint reconstruction market in the Asia-Pacific region is currently estimated to exceed $1.7 billion. Fortune Business Insights predicts a high growth rate for knee replacements in the region due to the combination of the increased prevalence of knee disorders, booming medical tourism, increased disposable incomes, and improved healthcare infrastructure.
