    TDRI Leads to Launch Design Collaboration between Taiwan and Japan for Emergency Kits and Disaster Prevention Teaching Aids

    TAIPEI, Dec. 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — To Taiwan and Japan, which are both island regions, and Turkey that has just been hit by a severe earthquake, disaster prevention has always been an important and highly regarded issue. Both Taiwan and Japan have extensive experience and professional know-hows in the area of disaster prevention, but the public still finds disaster prevention knowledge difficult and hard to understand. “Although disaster prevention is an important issue, a prevailing problem is that ‘its communication is difficult,'” said Vice Director Hirokazu Nagada of Design and Creative Center Kobe (KIITO).

    Nokia 9.3 PureView launch could be delayed again, now expected in 2021

    Nokia 9 PureView Review
    • Nokia’s Snapdragon 865 flagship may not launch this year.
    • The phone is apparently delayed till the first half of 2021.
    • Considering HMD Global’s erratic launch timelines, this isn’t really surprising.

    Call it the curse of the pandemic or plain old mismanagement, but it looks like the Nokia 9.3 PureView, or whatever the company’s next flagship is called, will not make it to market this year.

    According to tipster Nokia Anew, the successor to the Nokia 9 PureView has been delayed until next year, specifically the first half of 2021. The exact date or month of launch is still unknown, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it’s pushed even further or if HMD Global decides to skip the Snapdragon 865 flagship altogether.

    Nokia 9 3 delay rumor

    As per previous rumors, the so-called Nokia 9.3 PureView has been delayed several times this past year. A report in September pegged the launch of the phone for

    SpaceX Prepares Starship SN8 For Launch, But Elon Musk Gives 1-in-3 Chance Of Landing Intact


    • Starship prototypes SN5 and SN6 completed short hop tests in earlier this year
    • Elon Musk said a lot of things need to go right with this launch
    • Starship’s orbital launch will not be before 2021

    Elon Musk revealed on Tuesday that SpaceX could launch its latest Starship prototype as early as “next week.” 

    The Serial Number 8 Starship prototype, also called SN8, has already passed a test firing of its three engines. In its next launch, SpaceX is hoping the rocket will reach an altitude of around 50,000 feet, which would be quite a liftoff considering both the SN5 and SN6 flights only reached 500 feet.

    For Musk, the Starship mission has become SpaceX’s main focus, following the successful launch of four astronauts into space in its Crew Dragon capsule earlier this month.

    Musk has said that the Starship mission needs to be pushed forward “dramatically and immediately,”
