Problem solving and its close cousin innovation need a mix of skills and backgrounds within teams to really fire. While policy attention is often on the technical or STEM skills shortage solid research supports the inclusion of HASS - humanities, arts, and social sciences to get better outcomes in creating commercial, economic, and social value. These capabilities complement in very important ways the other (technical) elements of the skills mix.Article by Dr John Howard:https://www.innovationaus.com/technical-skills-are-not-enough-for-sustained-innovation/
Bounce is planning an on-demand transport service using 100% electric minibuses, giving tech-savvy professionals a clean, convenient, and emission conscious commute to work.
They promise a premium service, at an affordable price along arterial roads within 10kms of the CBD. Launching 2023 in Sydney first.
By the early 2030s, the first operating Power Beaming prototypes could be in use and capture sunlight in orbit and then beam it wirelessly down to Earth. This solar energy would then supply cities, factories, households and eventually aeroplanes with electricity on Earth.
In geostationary orbit about 36,000 kilometres above Earth, a solar panel the same size as one of its counterparts on Earth can generate significantly more electricity.
The technology can be designed to prevent harm to birds or people flying in aircraft by spreading the beam out over a wide area.https://www.airbus.com/en/newsroom/news/2022-09-solar-power-beams-a-step-towards-cleaner-energy
