Although the focus is on the automobile, the truth is that there are many other scenarios where autonomous electric vehicles could be much more necessary and effective. One example is freighters that have been taking routes that have been predefined for years, which have virtually the same methods for every journey and can transfer many of these skills to autonomous navigation technology. The proof is on and the world’s pioneering autonomous electric freighter has completed its first voyage.

This advance in technology will save 1,000 tons of carbon emissions per year.

Brown dwarfs are celestial bodies whose size is between that of giant planets like Jupiter and small stars. These stars are not big enough to initiate hydrogen fusion in their core and have a low luminosity. However, as they have a mass greater than that of a planet, but not as massive as that of a star, these celestial bodies are considered failed stars. However, Dwarf Reid 1B is rich in lithium.

After it was found, astronomers discovered that this ancient star has deposits of intact “white gold” that are 13,000 times the amount found on Earth.
