The spacecraft launched on an Antares 230 Rocket from the Virginia Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport's Pad 0A at Wallops on the company's 10th cargo delivery flight, and is scheduled to arrive at the orbital laboratory Monday, Nov. 19. Expedition 57 astronauts Serena Auñón-Chancellor of NASA and Alexander Gerst of ESA (European Space Agency) will use the space station's robotic arm to grapple Cygnus about 5:20 a.m. Installation coverage will begin at 4 a.m. on NASA Television and the agency's website.

This Commercial Resupply Services contract mission will support dozens of new and existing investigations as Expeditions 57 and 58 contribute to some 250 science and research studies. Highlights from the new experiments include a demonstration of 3D printing and recycling technology and simulating the creation of celestial bodies from stardust.

Recycling and Fabrication in Space

The Refabricator is the first-ever 3D printer and recycler integrated into one user-friendly machine. Once it's installed in the space station, it will demonstrate recycling of waste plastic and previously 3D printed parts already on-board into high-quality filament (i.e. 3D printer 'ink'). This recycled filament will then be fed into the printer to make new tools and parts on-demand in space. This technology could enable closed-loop, sustainable fabrication, repair and recycling on long-duration space missions, and greatly reduce the need to continually launch large supplies of new material and parts for repairs and maintenance.

The demonstration, which NASA's Space Technology Mission and Human Exploration and Operations Directorates co-sponsored, is considered a key enabling technology for in-space manufacturing. NASA awarded a Small Business Innovation Research contract valued to Tethers Unlimited Inc. to build the recycling system.

Formation of the Early Solar System

The Experimental Chondrule Formation at the International Space Station (EXCISS) investigation will explore how planets, moons and other objects in space formed by simulating the high-energy, low-gravity conditions that were present during formation of the early solar system. Scientists plan to zap a specially formulated dust with an electrical current, and then study the shape and texture of the resulting pellets.

Understanding Parkinson's Disease

The Crystallization of LRRK2 Under Microgravity Conditions-2 (PCG-16) investigation grows large crystals of an important protein, leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 (LRRK2), in microgravity for analysis back on Earth. This protein is implicated in development of Parkinson's disease, and improving our knowledge of its structure may help scientists better understand the pathology of the disease and develop therapies to treat it. LRRK2 crystals grown in gravity are too small and too compact to study, making microgravity an essential part of this research. This investigation is sponsored by the U.S. National Laboratory on the space station, which Congress designated in 2005 to maximize its use for improving quality of life on Earth.

The Cygnus spacecraft will remain at the space station until February before its destructive reentry into Earth's atmosphere, disposing of several thousand pounds of trash. This is the seventh flight of an enhanced Cygnus spacecraft, and the fourth using Northrop Grumman's upgraded Antares 230 launch vehicle featuring new RD-181 engines that provide increased performance and flexibility.

The spacecraft for this mission is named in honor of astronaut John Young. Young was selected for NASA's second astronaut class and flew during the Gemini, Apollo and Space Shuttle programs. He walked on the Moon during Apollo 16 in 1972 and commanded the first space shuttle mission in 1981. Young passed away in January.

The carbon nanotubes market is estimated to grow from USD 4.55 billion in 2018 to USD 9.84 billion by 2023, at a CAGR 16.7%.

The demand for carbon nanotubes has been increasing rapidly in applications such as field emission displays, integrated circuits, hydrogen storage, lithium batteries, solar PV cells, fuel cells, and drug delivery. Increasing commercialization; ramping up of installed capacities; and technological advancements to bring down prices, improve quality, and develop more advanced products are the trends in the carbon nanotubes market.

Currently, R&D is being undertaken for capturing new applications, including food materials, glass ceramic, structural steel, agriculture, and hair color. The constant increase in the feasibility of potential applications for carbon nanotubes will keep the demand ticking upward during the forecast period.

The carbon nanotubes market is segmented on the basis of on multi-walled and single-walled carbon nanotubes. The multi-walled carbon nanotube segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR in terms of value during the forecast period from 2018 to 2023.

MWCNTs are used in applications such as electrical conductivity, conductive transparent electrodes, conductive heating films, conductive nano inks, nanodevices, displays, chemical sensors, super batteries, supercapacitors, energy storages, solar industries, and thermal interface material. They are highly conductive when properly integrated into a composite structure. Only the outer walls of MWNTs are conductive, not the inner ones.

The carbon nanotubes market is segmented based on method into chemical vapor deposition (CVD), catalytic chemical vapor deposition (CCVD), and high-pressure carbon monoxide reaction (HiPCO), among others. The CVD segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

It is the largest and fastest-growing method segment globally. CVD of hydrocarbons over a metal catalyst is a classical method that has been used by various manufacturers to produce carbon nanotube. It is also the cheaper method, and it is expected that the price will further go down globally.

The carbon nanotubes market is segmented based on application into electronics & semiconductor, advanced materials, chemical & polymers, batteries & capacitors, energy, aerospace & defense, medical, and others.

Lithium batteries are expected to have the highest market share during the forecast period. The demand for lithium-ion batteries is rapidly increasing in vehicles that require lightweight and high-energy density solutions. These batteries provide the highest energy density per weight and also used in cellular phones, notebook computers, and hybrid automobiles. OEMs have to adopt batteries which have high capacities and are also light in weight that provides them with the leanest production process and also reduces CO2 emissions.

Restraints

Increasing concerns over the environmental impact of carbon nanotubes have led to stringent regulatory constraints for carbon nanotubes manufacturers. High risk is identified for human beings and the environment from carbon nanotubes agglomerates. The toxicity of carbon nanotubes may affect human health, including increased risk of high blood pressure and kidney damage. Carbon nanotubes are fibrous in nature and may cause some health problems if inhaled.

NORTH CANTON, Ohio, Nov. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- A glimpse into the future of American innovation and emerging technological trends from the nation's brightest young inventors — from a steerable microcatheter to a reusable UV-radiation-measuring sensor — were recognized and honored today at the 2018 Collegiate Inventors Competition®, an annual Competition for college and university students and their faculty advisors.

"We stand on the cusp of truly historic times for science and technology," said Andrei Iancu, Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). "The USPTO is proud to host this Competition. The research and innovations of our greatest collegiate inventors will lead our nation to ever higher achievements."

Finalist teams (five Undergraduate and six Graduate), consisting of 29 students from 11 colleges and universities across the United States, received an all-expenses-paid trip to the final round of the Competition held at the USPTO's Madison Building in Alexandria, Virginia. The teams presented their inventions to an esteemed panel of final-round judges composed of the most influential inventors and innovation experts in the nation — National Inventors Hall of Fame® Inductees and USPTO officials.

"The Collegiate Inventors Competition, held at the United States Patent and Trademark Office, showcases the process of invention in our nation's greatest young innovators — leading through creative thinking, problem solving and determination," said National Inventors Hall of Fame CEO Michael Oister. "These teams had the opportunity to compete against the most cutting-edge collegiate inventors, and they also were inspired and mentored by the greatest minds and innovation game-changers in the world — the Inductees of the National Inventors Hall of Fame."

Established in 1990, the Collegiate Inventors Competition is a program of the National Inventors Hall of Fame. The Competition is sponsored by the USPTO, Arrow Electronics, LYCRA®, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, and Bridgestone Americas Inc.

2018 GOLD WINNERS

Undergraduate: Rhino, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Team Members: Elizabeth Bianchini, Kyler Kocher, Ann McInroy, Sam Resnick; Advisor: Warren Seering
Less Mortar Mess: Removing decaying, crumbling mortar from between bricks to subsequently replace it with new mortar is a messy, tedious and time-consuming job in the construction field. This process, joint raking, generates so much silica dust that workers must wear respirators and goggles for safety. Rhino is a masonry tool attachment that can be used with any traditional rotary hammer. It improves accuracy and safety of joint raking, allowing masons to cover 50 percent more area during a given time.

Graduate: PionEar, Harvard University
Team Members: Nicole Black, Michael J. Kreder; Advisors: Joanna Aizenberg and Jennifer Lewis
Clearing Your Hearing: Ear infections are a leading cause of healthcare visits worldwide, affecting more than 700 million people annually. Ear tubes, used to treat chronic ear infections, have several limitations. As many as 40 percent fail due to issues including clogging, bacterial adhesion, premature extrusion and the inability to effectively transport fluids out of the middle ear space. PionEar uses a bioinspired combination of novel 3-D printed designs and a liquid-infused material to combat these issues with the goal of reducing unnecessary revision surgeries to replace failed ear tubes.

2018 SILVER WINNERS

Undergraduate: Radiex, Johns Hopkins University
Team Members: Jody Mou, Linh Tran, Kevin Tu; Advisor: Amir Manbachi
Extending Brain Surgery's Reach: During brain surgery, a retractor with metal blades holds brain tissue apart to maintain a working channel. Existing retractors hinder tumor removal and can cause further injury from pressure on brain tissue. Radiex's cylindrical, compact design allows surgeons to access the brain through the smallest point of entry. Once in place, Radiex has the flexibility to gradually expand, increasing the surgeon's area of visibility without added pressure to tissue.

Graduate: Neurotendo, University of California at San Diego
Team Member: Gopesh Tilvawala; Advisor: James Friend
A Brainier Approach: Unruptured aneurysms in the brain are found in one in 50 people in the United States. They potentially can be treated by minimally invasive surgery, but existing surgical methods are often ineffective. Neurotendo addresses the need for a controlled approach to navigation of brain arteries and treatment of cerebral aneurysms with a steerable microcatheter that translates a neurosurgeon's command into the motion of the catheter tip. This micro surgical medical device enables precise navigation, reduction of procedure times and a safer technique.

Neurotendo also was the winner of the 2018 Collegiate Inventors Competition People's Choice Award.

2018 BRONZE WINNERS

Undergraduate: CropDoc, Brown University
Team Members: Abigail Kohler, Jack Roswell, Eli Silvert, Alex Zhuk; Advisor: Chandra Madramootoo
Sensing Sick Crops: Pests and crop diseases kill 20 percent of all crops before harvest, causing an annual $990 billion loss in farm income. No current technology can identify specific diseases on farms. Using advanced optics and novel processing techniques, CropDoc provides farmers with actionable insights regarding the location and projected progression of pests and specific crop diseases — weeks before visual symptoms manifest.

Graduate: OSPRI, Case Western Reserve University
Team Members: Sanjit Datta, David Pfau, Eric Salomon, Charit Tippareddy; Advisor: Daniel Lacks
Color Your Water Clean: An inadequate supply of clean water accounts for 3.4 million deaths each year. Optimized Solar Purification with a Reusable Indicator, or OSPRI, was developed to address the need of low-cost clean water in the developing world. Used with solar disinfection techniques, OSPRI is a reusable UV-radiation-measuring sensor that changes color to notify a user that the treated water is safe to drink. OSPRI could increase access to clean drinking water worldwide, drastically reducing waterborne illnesses.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Customer demand for new energy technologies like electric vehicle (EV) charging and solar power has more than doubled since 2017. Utilities across the country, with an eye on creating new revenue streams, are increasingly launching EV charging and solar power offerings to meet this growing demand. While many consumers view utilities as natural providers for these offerings, utilities are quickly losing preferred provider status to non-utility third parties.

Overall customer preference for the utility as a solar power provider among interested customers has fallen from 68% last year to 47%. While preference for utilities as a provider of EV charging offerings remains flat, preference for third-party providers has increased by 66%. If preference for third-party providers continues to increase at this rate, they will overtake utilities in consumer preference in three years.

“Utilities are on the verge of one of the greatest marketing and revenue opportunities they have ever had,” said Chris Oberle, senior vice president at Market Strategies International-Morpace. “If they want to capture significant EV charging and solar power market share, utilities need to quickly build and defend their brands as trusted providers of new energy technologies.”

Our energy industry research shows customers with low brand trust in their utility have a very high preference for third-party providers, while the utilities with the strongest preference tend to have higher Brand Trust scores as well as strong support for being “trusted energy advisers.”

 
Provider Preference by Offering Category and Brand Trust

(Brand Trust is measured on a scale of 1–1,000)

         
    Low Brand Trust   High Brand Trust
Solar power offerings—prefer utility   38%   47%
Solar power offerings—prefer third party 29% 7%
Solar power offerings—no preference   33%   46%
EV charging offerings—prefer utility 38% 58%
EV charging offerings—prefer third party 28% 19%
EV charging offerings—no preference 44% 33%
 

Source: Market Strategies International-Morpace. Cogent Reports™. Utility Trusted Brand & Customer Engagement™: Residential study, September 2018.

Nationwide, 14% of utility customers say that they are likely to adopt rooftop solar, community solar, solar hot water or home battery storage within the next six months. While western states like California and Arizona are perceived to be the hottest solar markets, the greatest demand for solar offerings is actually in the South—stretching from Texas to Virginia. Similarly, customers in the South indicate the greatest interest in home or public EV charging offerings.

These and other findings can be found in the Cogent Reports™ 2018 Utility Trusted Brand & Customer Engagement™: Residential study by Market Strategies International-Morpace. The study measures the market dynamics of over 65 offerings and customer shopping behaviors of 18 customer segments.

About Utility Trusted Brand & Customer Engagement: Residential

Market Strategies-Morpace conducted surveys among 52,486 residential electric, natural gas and combination utility customers of the 130 largest US utility companies (based on residential customer counts). The sample design uses a combination of quotas and weighting based on US census data to ensure a demographically balanced sample of each evaluated utility’s customers based on age, gender, income, race and ethnicity. Utilities within the same region and of the same type (e.g., electric-only providers) are given equal weight in order to balance the influence of each utility’s customers on survey results. Market Strategies-Morpace will supply the exact wording of any survey question upon request.

Today CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™, the largest CEO-driven coalition to advance diversity and inclusion within the workplace, announced three key actions at its second annual CEO Closed-Door Session. This includes the launch of the new “Check Your Blind Spots" unconscious bias mobile tour with experiential elements and online resources to give people the opportunity to learn about and explore ways to mitigate unconscious bias in their everyday lives.

"The bold actions announced today will help leaders draw on our collective power to drive change," said Tim Ryan, US Chairman and Senior Partner of PwC and chair of the CEO Action steering committee. "Together, we have made unprecedented progress, but we must continue to challenge ourselves in new ways to foster more open, inclusive and diverse workplaces and communities."

The three actions announced today include:

  • Launching the new "Check Your Blind Spots" unconscious bias mobile tour with experiential elements and online resources to give people the opportunity to learn about and explore ways to mitigate unconscious bias in their everyday lives. The tour will make 100 stops across the country and engage one million people.
  • Initiating the "I Act On" pledge, in conjunction with the unconscious bias mobile tour, individuals can commit to action through a personal pledge to mitigate any personal unconscious biases, and act on driving more inclusive behaviors in their everyday lives. Individuals can also take the pledge via ceoaction.com/pledge.
  • Hosting a "Day of Understanding", the largest conversation about diversity and inclusion in the business community and beyond. More than 150 signatories will come together to take bold action and host a day of candid conversations within each of their respective companies surrounding race, gender and age in order to further embrace differences in our organizations.

In addition to discussing the new actions, CEOs and presidents will collaborate during working sessions and hear from employees about their real-life experiences at signatory companies. Speakers Earvin 'Magic' Johnson and Van Jones will also offer their perspectives on key diversity and inclusion topics.

The coalition will also release "Beyond the Bottom Line", a five-part landmark series featuring conversations between CEOs and their employees, unpacking diversity and inclusion issues confronting the workplace today hosted on the Huffington Post's Purpose + Profit platform, and sponsored by PwC.

"The collaborative sessions, direct CEO-to-CEO engagement and the new actions announced today are tangible examples of how CEO Action realizes the significant role individual CEOs can play in continuing to advance diversity and inclusion," said David Taylor, Chairman, President and CEO of The Procter & Gamble Company. "As leaders in our industries, organizations and communities, creating positive change and making an impact is our responsibility."

With research showing that 78 percent of Americans want companies to address important social justice issues, the actions outlined at the second annual Closed-Door Session will help the coalition's more than 500 signatories, representing 85 industries and 12 million employees, glean ideas and opportunities to drive additional progress within their companies and organizations around diversity and inclusion.

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--kWh Analytics, the market leader in solar risk management, today announced that it structured a Solar Revenue Put for a portfolio of 4,000 projects totaling approximately 35 MW DC of capacity located in the Northeast U.S. The facilities are being developed and managed by IGS Solar, a residential and commercial solar provider. The IGS Solar portfolio is being funded by a commitment from Ares EIF, the power and infrastructure strategy at Ares Management, L.P. (NYSE: ARES), a global asset manager, and a term loan commitment from ING Capital LLC (“ING”), a financial services company. Swiss Re, a leading global corporate insurer, is providing capacity for the Solar Revenue Put. Marathon Capital acted as exclusive financial advisor to IGS. This was the first US residential portfolio financed with the support of the Solar Revenue Put.

The Solar Revenue Put is structured as an insurance policy on solar production and revenues, which serves as a credit enhancement for financial investors. Using its proprietary actuarial model and risk management software (“HelioStats”), kWh Analytics developed the Solar Revenue Put to drive down investment risk and encourage development of clean, low-cost solar energy.

“We started IGS Solar because we believe in the value of developing alternative sources of energy,” says Mike Gatt, Chief Operating Officer of Distributed Generation at IGS. “To support us in this growth, we were pleased to have found efficient and reliable execution with our partners, ING, Ares, and kWh Analytics. The Solar Revenue Put enables us to both enhance our returns and reduce our downside risk.”

“Starting with our initial investments in 2013, we have continued our leading role as a lender to the residential solar space,” says Scott Hancock, Director at ING. “We are pleased to have incorporated the Solar Revenue Put to support this financing for IGS and Ares.”

A recent survey of the solar industry’s most active lenders indicates that more than 40% of active lenders value the Solar Revenue Put as a credit enhancement. Solar portfolios ranging from thousands of residential rooftops to more than ten utility-scale plants have utilized financing structures supported by the Solar Revenue Put. Portfolios supported by the Solar Revenue Put are securing debt sizing increases of 10% on average.

Swiss Re Corporate Solutions provided the risk capacity for the Solar Revenue Put. Brian Beebe, Head of Origination North America Weather and Energy, Swiss Re Corporate Solutions, says, “Swiss Re is committed to managing carbon-related sustainability risks and supporting the transition to a low-carbon economy. We are actively building our business to support the renewable energy that will power our global future. The Solar Revenue Put represents a new, multi-billion dollar insurtech category.”

BRÜSSEL, November 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

Die Aid Innovation Challenge wurde von Yolk gewonnen, einem in Südkorea ansässigen Start-up-Unternehmen, das damit am 14. November 2018 in Brüssel auf der AidEx 2018 für seine Erfindung "Solar Cow and Milk Power" ausgezeichnet wurde. Es handelt sich um eine solarbetriebene Kuh, die Kinderarbeit in Angriff nimmt und dabei gleichzeitig die Bildung und Stromverteilung mit kuhförmigen Powerbanken verbessert.

Die Erfindung wurde vor über einem Jahr entwickelt, als die Mitbegründerin Sungun Chang die bestehenden Solarlampen für ineffizient hielt und eine einfache Lösung für mehrere soziale komplexe Probleme bereitstellen wollte.

Informationen zum Gewinner 
Die Solarkuh ist ein Social-Engineering-Projekt, das Eltern in Form einer Stromquelle positiv bestärkt, ihre Kinder zur Schule schicken.

Wenn die Kinder morgens in der Schule ankommen, müssen Sie lediglich ihre Batterien an den Euter der Solarkuh anhängen. Und am Ende des Schultags können sie mit ausreichender Stromversorgung nach Hause gehen.

Familien können so 10 bis 20 % ihres Einkommens sparen, das sie sonst für das Aufladen ihrer Handys ausgeben müssten. Dies bedeutet einen Anreiz für die Eltern, ihre Kinder in die Schule und nicht zur Arbeit zu schicken, um kostenlosen Strom zu bekommen.

Yolk erhielt erstmals Anerkennung für sein "Solarpapier" das in Millionenhöhe verkauft wurde, als das Start-up-Unternehmen auf der Kickstarter-Plattform 1 Million USD in Spenden übertraf, das sind 3% der Finanzierungssumme. Zudem war York das erste koreanische Unternehmen, das über eine Million hinaus erfolgreich war.

Chang meinte zum Gewinn des Preises:

"Ich freue mich sehr, an AidEx teilzunehmen und den Wettbewerb zu gewinnen. Der Event ist eine großartige Plattform, um unsere Produkte in der gesamten Community für humanitäre Hilfe und Entwicklung bekannt zu machen und somit die Lebensbedingungen von Familien in Entwicklungsländern zu verbessern."

Und zu dem, was das Produkt auszeichnet, meinte Chang:

"Kinderarbeit, Bildung und Stromverteilung sind allesamt sehr komplexe Probleme und werden daher einzeln angesprochen. Mit der Solarkuh können wir all diese Probleme gleichzeitig lösen und darin liegt die Stärke von "Solar Cow and Power Milk".

Informationen zu AidEx
AidEx ist der weltweit größte Event für Experten in den Bereichen humanitäre Hilfe und Entwicklung, der alljährlich in Brüssel und Nairobi stattfindet.
