I just love all the ship classes here. Not only do you get the tasty new designs of Sovereign, Akira, Steamrunner, Saber, and Norway, but you also get some continuity from the Defiant, Miranda, and Nebula classes also there. DS9 really over-used the Excelsior, so it is kind of nice not to see it here.
I tell you, seeing this scene for the first time in theaters was more nerd-gasming than the reveal of Darth Maul’s double-bladed lightsaber.
“♻ @17thSoulja4 When it comes to the success of the electric car, billionaire Elon Musk is viewed as nothing short of a miracle worker. But roughly 8,000 miles away from Tesla’s Palo Alto headquarters, #SegunOyeyiola has also managed to make something extraordinary on a smaller scale. The engineering senior at Nigeria’s Obagemi Awolowo University spent a year retrofitting a Volkswagen Beetle into a wind and solar-powered car, partly made of free scrap parts donated by friends and family. Everything else cost under $6,000.
There’s little question as to why Oyeyiola, who is taking his finals in the next two weeks, would devote so much of his extra-curricular time and resources to the project.
As he wrote in an email to Co.Exist: "I wanted to reduce carbon dioxide emission[s] going to our atmosphere that lead to climate change or global warming which has become a new reality, with deleterious effect: seasonal cycles are disrupted, as are ecosystems; and agriculture, water needs and supply, and food production are all adversely affected.” “Therefore, I came up of building a car that will use both winds and solar energy for its movement,” he continued. “This was my personal project because of the problem I’m planning to solve.”
