Israel, small on Earth, large in space tech!
In the Israel of the 1980’s, policymakers recognized and accepted that space related activities had the potential to contribute, not only to the Israeli economy and the country’s international standing, but also to the advancement of humanity in terms of research, agriculture, communications and the monitoring of environmental pollution.  As a result, The Israel Space Agency was founded by government in 1983 under the auspices of the Ministry of Science and Technology, and given a mandate to initiate and coordinate all activities of a civilian space program.

A new way to address the West’s ‘loneliness epidemic’
The state of New York will distribute Israeli robot companions to the homes of more than 800 older adults. The robots are not able to help with physical tasks, but function as more proactive versions of digital assistants like Siri or Alexa — engaging users in small talk, helping contact love ones, and keeping track of health goals like exercise and medication. Scientific studies suggest social robots do “appear to have the potential to improve the well-being of older adults,” but researchers say it’s hard to draw conclusions without wider trials. Should we trial it in Australia? Read more:  https://israeltrade.org.au/2022/05/27/ny-state-is-giving-out-hundreds-of-robots-as-companions-for-the-elderly/

Floating Solar Panels?
Israel lacks roughly 12,000 acres to meet its 30 percent share of renewable energy goal by 2030.But what if land wasn’t a limiting factor for solar energy? What if we could harness the unused surfaces of our lakes and various types of water reservoirs instead? This is the concept behind floating photovoltaics (FPV), otherwise referred to as floating solar––PV modules mounted on buoyant platforms that float on sunlit bodies of water where surface conditions are calm. Xfloat’s system has buoyancy tanks arranged in a grid of connected vessels that control the rotation of the PV tracking tables in unison. https://nocamels.com/2022/05/xfloat-mekorot-solar-panels-energy-floating/

Robot Hives to Keep Bees Buzzing
More than 70 percent of crops, including almost all fruits, vegetables, oilseeds, spices, coffee and cocoa are dependent on pollinators such as bees. They function as normal hives, but apiaries built at a kibbutz in Israel’s Galilee are decked out with high-tech artificial intelligence systems set to ensure longevity for these vital pollinators. The hives feature a multi-purpose robot that does everything from monitor the bees to adjust the habitat and provide them with care. The startup hopes to be producing its own honey for the first time — the “first honey in the world made with artificial intelligence” https://israeltrade.org.au/2022/05/19/robot-hives-in-israel-kibbutz-hope-to-keep-bees-buzzing/
