There was no significant change in the outlook of pickup trucks for almost a century. The world became bored with nearly similar designed trucks decades after decades. Elon Musk, the visionary CEO of Tesla initiated a new era of electronic pickup trucks through unveiling Tesla Cybertruck on 22nd November, 2019.
Headquartered at Palo Alto in California, the American Automotive Company Tesla,inc. always tends to surprise the world with futuristic innovations - most notably all its vehicles run on electricity. Built with cutting-edge technology, Tesla Electric Cybertruck continues the trend of sleek design and top-grade performance from Tesla vehicles, notwithstanding the unfortunate incident at its launch. Let’s dig into what is the specialty of this vehicle.
The Tesla Cybertruck is a fully electric battery driven vehicle. This commercial vehicle aims to serve as a substitute for the fossil fuel powered pick-up trucks in the United States. Tesla Cybertruck offers a bunch of exclusive features in its three models.
Tesla Cybertruck shocks the world with its weirdly smart angular roof design. Its uniform exterior is blessed with elegantly smooth exterior. This vehicle steals the show with its metal built transparent glass. This ultra-hard armor glass includes polymer-layered composite, which makes it tremendously strong.
Besides the smart exterior design, the interior of Cybertruck features a flexible and convenient space design. Six people can sit comfortably inside a Cybertruck. You would love its 17-inch touchscreen controllable by high-end autopilot technology. Tesla Cybertruck also offers room for bonus storage space under the seats of its second row.
Don’t misjudge Tesla Cybertruck as a light vehicle due to its smooth looking exterior. Tesla Cybertruck features a heavy-duty chassis called ‘Exoskeleton’. It is built with Ultra-hard Stainless steel containing 30X Cold-Rolled alloy. Tesla applied the same material for building their Rocket. This high-end innovative construction technology makes Cybertruck damage resistant, dent proof, and nearly anti-corrosive.
While staying inside this vehicle, you are safe even if someone shoots you! Cybertruck’s sturdy outer shell is bulletproof which can resist 9mm ammunition. You can narrowly create a dent on its chassis even hitting with a large heavy-duty hammer. This next generation vehicle promises ultimate passenger safety with superb durability. It won’t be hyperbole to say that Cybertruck is the realistic version of fictitious giant vehicles we often see in science fiction movies.
What makes the Tesla Cybertruck unparalleled is the mind-blowing combination of its speed, distance and performance. After a single recharging session, Tesla’s Single motor Cybertruck RWD can travel 250 plus miles; whereas the Dual Motor RWD can run more than 300 miles. The Cybertruck tri-motor AWD model is the Pro of these three. This vehicle can travel over 500 miles. Tesla Cybertruck runs like a champ not only on paved roads but also on rough terrain.
All the 3 models of Tesla Cybertruck feature an amazing payload – total weight including passenger and cargo – capacity of 35000 pounds. It is no less than a mystery to the whole world that how Cybertruck runs so faster with its heavyweight structure.
Thanks to Tesla for building Cybertruck with greater strength. Cybertruck outperforms the present day pickup trucks with its superb towing capacity. Its three models offer different capacities. Single motor Cybertruck RWD can two up to 7500 pounds. The dual motor Awd is strong enough to pull 10000 pounds of weight.
The tri-motor Cybertruck AWD out wins its counterparts with an amazing towing capacity of 14000 pound weight. Cybertruck’s incredible strength of pulling heavy-weight mass would undoubtedly make it the first sought vehicle by leading industries around the world.
The consumer-friendly design of Tesla Cybertruck offers 100 cubic feet of storage capacity. Its 6.5 feet long storage space looks like a vault. This massive space can be used for storing cybersquad, equipment, toolbox, tire, even a motorbike. Certainly, Cybertruck’s capacious design has raised the style and standard of pickup trucks to a new altitude.
Are you thinking about how to charge this powerful vehicle? This Cybertruck comes with Tesla 14000+ Supercharger which capable of charging 250+ KW.
What is more? This all electric pick-up truck is equipped with 110-volt and 120-volt on-board power outlets. It’s hard to believe that Tesla Cybertruck itself can serve like a generator at the moment of need.
The chassis also includes air suspension technology coupled with autopilot standard. The on-board air-compressor makes this electric Cybertruck more potent.
On the whole, Tesla Cybertruck is a next generation invention in the realm of pickup trucks. It would take the current trend of light commercial vehicle technology thousand steps ahead. Cybertruck is a more genius vehicle than it is advertised. Tesla’s Cybertruck vehicles will be available on the market within a couple of years.
Brazil's President Jair Bolsonaro on Monday hailed the upcoming launch of Sino-Brazilian satellite CBERS-4A from a base in Taiyuan, capital city of northern China's Shanxi province.
"This coming 20th (of December), the CBERS-4A satellite, as well as the Floripasat nanosatellite, will be launched from China for diverse surveillance purposes," Bolsonaro said via Twitter.
The CBERS-4A, built in part with Brazilian technology, "is part of a cooperation agreement with China dating from 1988," the president added.
Floripasat is a miniaturized satellite, known as a CubeSat, which was developed by Brazil's Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC), Bolsonaro said.
Jointly built by Brazil's National Space Research Institute (INPE) and the Chinese Academy of Space Technology (CAST), the CBERS-4A arrived at the Taiyuan base on Nov. 5. It is the sixth satellite developed as part of the CBERS program, signed by the two governments in the late 1980s.
The satellite is programed to make 14 orbits daily around the planet, mainly to monitor deforestation and fires in the Amazon rainforest, and to supply agricultural data.
According to the INPE, the CBERS-4A will orbit at a lower altitude than the currently-functioning CBERS-4, so it can generate higher-resolution images.
In 2004, the CBERS program initiated an open-data policy, allowing research institutions, universities and private-sector companies to benefit from the free use of images captured by the satellite.

The enhanced X-Ray Timing and Polarimetry mission (eXTP) could set an example of good cooperation between the Czech Republic and China, said Czech scientists attending an international workshop on Astronomical X-Ray Optics which closed here on Friday.
The eXTP is a China-led cutting-edge satellite observatory that aims to explore still mysterious celestial bodies, such as black holes and neutron stars.
The project, to be launched by 2027, has reached out for cooperation with scientists from more than 20 countries, including Italy, Germany,and France.
Chinese researchers in the past relied mainly on interpreting data from other space programs, noted Prof. Vladimir Karas, director of Astronomical Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences.
But he stressed that the eXTP would change the trend as Chinese astrophysicists become more important in the international scientific community.
The eXTP project also spells closer economic cooperation between China and Europe. The satellite will carry four payloads - two developed mainly by China and two by Europe.
China will supply a Spectroscopy Focusing Array (SFA) and Polarimetry Focusing Array (PFA), while the European side will develop the Large Area Detector (LAD) and Wide Field Monitor (WFM).
The Czech team, composed of scientists from the Astronomical Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences and Silesian University in Opava, will contribute in cooperation with the Czech industry.
Czech scientists will participate in measurements of X-rays from the closest neighborhood of black holes and neutron stars.
"These satellites are extremely complicated and expensive, so it turns out that one country, one academy, or one space agency has finite resources to produce one satellite," said Karas, who is also Co-Principal Investigator of the Czech project for the eXTP.
"But these satellites don't last forever. They fly a few years, and they need to be replaced... no country is able to repeat this many times. There needs collaboration," Karas added.
Karas said his team's collaboration with Chinese researchers began about 10 years ago at an astrophysics conference in Spain, where he and a Chinese researcher from Shanghai found shared research interests.
Since then, Karas has co-signed research papers with Chinese physicists and saw the launch of the Hard X-ray Modulation Telescope (HXMT) in China two years ago.
Formal relations between the Chinese and Czech space programs began in the early 1990s. The Czech Academy of Sciences and Chinese Academy of Sciences both finance student exchanges and allow researchers to visit each other's academies.
The Czech Republic, through the European Space Agency (ESA), is also formally collaborating with the Chinese Academy of Sciences on other projects such as the Solar wind Magnetosphere Ionosphere Link Explorer (SMILE).
So far, the Czech Republic is part of the main consortium on SMILE and providing "top-level participation" during the project's finalization.
"SMILE is already in the manufacturing process, everything is fixed, and it's official," said Prof. Rene Hudec, the Czech team's lead from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University.
However, the ESA has yet to sign on to the eXTP project officially.
"I hear that they will somehow support or join the mission so that everything should be on the right track," said Karas. "For us, it would be a big help because the Czech Republic is a small country and we are involved in the ESA."
Social media companies are failing to stop manipulated activity, according to a report Friday by NATO-affiliated researchers who said they were easily able to buy tens of thousands of likes, comments and views on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram.
Most of the phony accounts and the activity they engaged in remained online weeks later, even after researchers at the NATO Strategic Command Centre of Excellence flagged them up as fake.
The center, an independent group based in Latvia that advises the military alliance, said the findings contrast with statements from tech companies that say they've been working harder on stamping out manipulation.
"Overall social media companies are experiencing significant challenges in countering the malicious use of their platforms," the report said.
Online manipulation emerged as a major issue for tech companies after the 2016 U.S. election, when Russian influence efforts came to light. The researchers found that most fake social media activity is bought for commercial, not political, reasons. It can include Instagram influencers trying to pump up their profiles to make more money from their brand contracts.
Fake accounts are still used for political means, though it's a minor slice of the industry and aimed at "non-western" pages, the researchers said, noting they were used to buy engagement on hundreds of political pages and dozens of government pages.
To carry out the study, the researchers turned to the "manipulation service provider" industry, which is expanding to feed the growing demand for phony clicks and likes. They used 16 companies, most based in Russia, to buy fake online engagement for 105 posts on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram. They spent just 300 euros ($330) to purchase 3,530 comments, 25,750 likes, 20,000 views and 5,100 followers.
To avoid influencing real conversations, they only bought clicks for posts that were at least six months old and carried neutral and non-political messages, such as "Hello!" and "Thank you!" on New Year's greetings from European Union commissioners.
Four weeks later, 80% of the fake activity remained online, the researchers found, as they sought to gauge whether the sites were independently detecting misuse. They then reported 100 of the accounts as fake, but found about 95 remained active three weeks later.
Some companies were better than others, the report said.
YouTube was the easiest site on which to create fake accounts but the best at countering artificial likes and video views. Manipulating Instagram is easy and cheap because the site is was largely unable to detect and stop it, while Twitter was best at detecting and removing manipulation.
Facebook was best at stopping fake accounts, but any that got through were more successful because they faced little further scrutiny, and their comments and views weren't removed. Facebook says it disabled 2.2 billion fake accounts in the first quarter of this year.
"Fake engagement tactics remain a challenge facing the entire industry," Facebook, which also owns Instagram, said in a statement. "We're making massive investments to find and remove fake accounts and engagement every day."
YouTube said it takes any abuse of its systems seriously and has invested in technology to prevent the artificial inflation of video view counts.
"While no anti-spam system will ever be perfect, our teams work very hard to manage spam views to less than one percent of all views," it said in a statement.
Twitter said it has "invested significant technical resources to this issue and are committed to improvement."
