For those who don’t know, Faustian bargain, a pact whereby a person trades something of supreme moral or spiritual importance, such as personal values or the soul, for some worldly or material benefit, such as knowledge, power, or riches. That’s a good trade bytheway but I won’t recommend doing that.
Let’s dive in some words about Grimes:
Claire Boucher professionally as Grimes, is a Canadian musician, singer, songwriter, and record producer. She was born and raised in Vancouver (later moving to Montreal), and Grimes began releasing music independently in the late 2000s. She released two albums, Geidi Primes and Halfaxa, in 2010 on Arbutus Records.
Her name made headlines when she started a relationship with Elon Musk. They both welcomed a sun in 2020, who they named “X Æ A-Xii”.
In early 2022, Grimes revealed that her relationship with Elon concluded by saying “Me and E have broken up ‘again’ but he’s my best friend and the love of my life, and my life and art are forever dedicated to The Mission now,” Since then, they interacts occasionally on Twitter.
SpaceX Starlink is working with New Zealand to support connectivity after Cyclone Gabrielle
New Zealand has been facing a severe outage of communication due to Cyclone Gabrielle and the SpaceX Starlink is coordinating with the government to support connectivity with its satellite powered network.
SpaceX wrote on Twitter “The Starlink team is coordinating with @NZcivildefence and other partners in New Zealand to support connectivity during recovery efforts after Cyclone Gabrielle
During the storm, while some users experienced brief outages as a result of ground station failovers, Starlink was able to maintain >99% network uptime across New Zealand”
On Tuesday, New Zealand declared a national state of emergency for only the third time in its history. The first one was announced during an earthquake in 2011 and the second one during COVID-19 in 2020.
While the latest disaster is causing havoc in the country including widespread flooding, landslides, and ocean swells is endangering people’s lives and forcing them to flee or strand on their roofs.
Prime Minister of New Zealand told “The severity and the breadth of the damage that we are seeing has not been experienced in a generation”
The situation is so serious and people are facing a severe shortage of power and consumables in parts of the affected area. About 225,000 people were left without electricity, while dozens of supermarkets closed, with Hipkins urging New Zealanders not to panic-buy supplies.
In this time of crisis, SpaceX could be a lifesaver to restore communication and provide essential information across the board as it doesn’t require much space to operate as well as energy.
