Rocket Lab finally revealed its Neutron rocket, a medium-lift vehicle that CEO Peter Beck calls “a rocket of 2050”, and a lot of that has to do with its complete redesign of rockets through material science. The 131-foot rocket will be made out of a special carbon composite that is extremely durable and lightweight, and also feature a new type of graphite composite for added thermal protection. With all of its other upgrades, the Neutron will be a far superior product to anything else on the market - if everything goes according to plan.
Good thing CEO Beck has been working with advanced composites and materials since the start of his career at a New Zealand government research facility. Unfortunately for Elon, this may spell the end of Space X as it’s already at risk of bankruptcy due to supply chain issues
Things are looking grim for the Nvidia-Arm deal, as the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) sued to block the US chip supplier’s planned $75bn acquisition of British chip designer Arm. The FTC is worried the proposed vertical integration would give one of the largest chip companies control over computing technology and designs that competitors rely on to develop their own competing chips. The combined entity would “would have the means and incentive to stifle innovative next-generation technologies, including those used to run data centres and driver-assistance systems in cars”.
