Trees began to grow on Earth about 370 million years ago. Currently, about 100,000 grow on Earth. tree species. Of which 8,000 species are threatened with extinction, and almost 1,000 are in critical condition.
The forest presents a unified and connected system, capable of communication and mutual assistance. The trees communicate with each other. They help and provide each other with missing ingredients.

Aston Martin Valkyrie – Fastest street car in the world

Aston Martin Valkyrie – Supercar was created as a result of cooperation between three giants. Aston Martin, the Red Bull Racing team and Adrian Newey, a British Formula 1 technical specialist. Initially, the project was known as the Nebula (producers acronym). Ultimately, however, it hit the market as Valkyrie. Continuing the brand’s tradition, that’s why the names of subsequent models start with the letter „V”. Related to high performance vehicles.
Vehicle has already been recognized as the fastest street car in the world. Its uniqueness is also demonstrated by the limited number of copies. Only 150 Valkyrie will be created (and 25 in a special racing version). Each of them will cost $ 3.2 million.
And each will be equipped with a Cosworth’s 6.5-liter V12 naturally aspirated engine, with power 1130 HP. Such is enough to accelerate the vehicle to 100 km / h in just 2.5 seconds. The engine supports an additional 160 HP from the battery system. This in turn makes Valkyrie one of the most powerful hybrid vehicles.
Interior of Aston Martin Valkyrie is highly personalized. The seats are created by 3D scanning. So that they best fit the shape of the driver. By using carbon fiber, it was possible to achieve a very low vehicle weight. Valkyrie weighs „only” 1030 kg.
One of the 150 copies of the superauto was sold in the Aston Martin salon in Warsaw. For a record amount of over PLN 15 million. So Valkyrie is the most expensive car in history, bought in Poland.

Fuel cell vehicle – Mode of action and possibilities

Fuel cell vehicle – Mode of action and possibilities of Hyundai Nexo. – So that the car can be fueled with the most ecological of fuels, hydrogen (from the exhaust pipe is extracted only steam). It must be provided with a compressed gas tank. For example, Hyundai Nexo, available on many European markets, has 156 liters of hydrogen. Which gives him a range of about 660 kilometers on one refueling.
The gas is supplied by cable to fuel cells . Where it is mixed with oxygen from the air. As a result of the reaction that followed. Electricity is produced and – as a by-product – steam. The resulting current drives the motor. Which in the case of the Nexo model generates up to 120 kW and allows a speed of 179 km / h.
