Vancouver has the highest market share of ZEVs in Canada, at 15%, followed by Montreal at 10.7% and Toronto at 4.3%. The market share of internal combustion engine vehicles in Canada, based on new vehicles registrations, fell from 94% in 2019 to 88% in 2021, while ZEV registrations increased from 4% in 2019 to 11.8% in 2021. Despite the challenges of getting delivery of a new car of any kind, due to the legacy of supply chain problems, the market share of zero emission vehicles in Canada ticked up in 2021 to 5.6%, with B.C. The challenges in these markets are different, and we have been laser focused on understanding the challenges of mid/last mile across the value chain, including the delivery personnel making 100+ deliveries a day.
Another billionaire self-funded a historic, three-day mission Прощавай, моя “пташко” — український бізнесмен віддав за ۱ долар усі свої акцій aboard a SpaceX orbital capsule that flew higher than any human has traveled in decades. It’s springtime and the deployed primary mirror of NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope looks like a spring flower in full bloom. In this photo, NASA technicians lifted the telescope using a crane and moved it inside a clean room at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.
This new 100,000 sq ft facility will support Axiom Space’s mission to provide access to low Earth orbit and assemble the first commercial international space station. NASA is also working to develop the infrastructure for a lunar base, and it’s partnering with private companies on science missions to the Moon. A company called Astrobotic will carry 11 payloads to a large crater on the near side of the Moon, including two mini-rovers and a package of personal mementos gathered from the general public by a company based in Germany. The Astrobotic lander will also be carrying the cremated remains of science fiction legend Arthur C. Clarke – as with Shatner’s flight into space, it’s an example of science fiction turned into fact. Another company, Intuitive Machines, plans two trips to the Moon in 2022, carrying 10 payloads that include a lunar hopper and an ice mining experiment.
But a federal judge delivered a major blow to Blue Origin in November by ruling in favor of NASA and SpaceX. That put the future of the Bezos-owned company’s plans to build a lunar lander into question. Playing out in the background of all the space tourism hype was a tense battle pitting the two wealthiest people on the planet against each other. Still, all the billionaires-in-space news generated plenty of backlash, including from high-profile figures such as the United Nations secretary general and Prince William. Blue Origin, meanwhile, has faced its own controversies, though none that have indicated specific safety issues with its rocket or spacecraft.
The James Webb Space Telescope is the scientific successor to NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope. Webb is an international project led by NASA with its partners, ESA and the Canadian Space Agency. As it prepares for the demonstration flight of Terran 1, the world’s first entirely 3D printed rocket, in 2022, Relativity will also accelerate production for Terran R, its fully reusable and entirely 3D printed rocket. Combined with the company’s new 1MM+ square-foot factory headquarters, this fourth generation Stargate printer allows Relativity to take its production to new heights, scale, and quality. With in-process monitoring, Relativity’s Stargate printers analyze the prints in real time, detecting any quality issues and using predictive capabilities to print fuselages to aerospace dimensional tolerances.
Nishank Khanna, chief marketing officer at Clarify Capital, said a commercial lease agreement is a legally binding contract between a landlord and a business tenant.

Space Force and Space Systems Command on integrating commercial and military space capabilities. The collapse of the commercial real estate market in the District during COVID-19 has some property owners looking to convert empty downtown office buildings into housing. “Opportunities are everywhere, but our progress is somewhat muted though we are fairly new in terms of privatising the space sector.
Nanoracks, a Voyager Space Company, is the world’s leading commercial space services provider. Nanoracks owns and operates private hardware on the International Space Station and has launched over 1,300 research experiments, deployed over 300 small satellites, and installed the Bishop Airlock. Today, Nanoracks leverages over a decade of experience to develop new commercial space systems in direct response to customer needs. These space systems include converting commercial launch vehicle upper stages into functional secondary platforms, building new habitable space stations, supplying payload and crew airlock systems and services infrastructure, and more. Together, these companies bring unparalleled experience in commercial space utilization, engineering design and performance, technology innovation, and investment strategy. The launch marks an important transition in crewed space travel for NASA, shifting the government space agency from having complete control over U.S. launches to being just another customer of a private space flight company.
The firm envisions holographic video walls comprised of these smaller panels, with upward of 245 billion pixels. Sierra is also developing a space habitat called the Large Integrated Flexible Environment which it intends to launch with Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin and form a commercially developed, owned and operated space station called Orbital Reef in low Earth orbit. The intention was to gain knowledge and spread it for the sake of humanity. Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin is developing the New Glenn and New Shepard rockets as well as engines and the Blue Moon lunar lander. In addition to carrying payloads, Blue Origin also plans to take tourists into space and is developing its own constellation of satellites for internet service. SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket routinely carries payloads into space for NASA, the Pentagon as well as other governments and companies, while its Falcon Heavy has launched commercial and government payloads.
