Star Wars Mark Hamill explains the cut scene he misses

‘Star Wars’ Mark Hamill explains the cut scene he misses

In a video call on a screenwriting Mark Hamill has explained in detail why he misses Luke Skywalker’s original introduction to “Episode 4”. Which was indeed shot (you can see them on Disney +), but not used.

Whether it’s just the age or question his personality was, once an open question. Anyway, the 68-year-old Mark Hamill is one of those “Star Wars” -Schauspielern who share their thoughts on the film series comparatively open. On primewire you can watch all Star Wars movies online.

Hamill made no secret that he had problems accepting Luke Skywalker’s story in “Star Wars 8” – now he has spoken in a video talking about Luke’s first appearance in the saga, in which he misses something.

In “Star Wars 4: A New Hope” (1977) we learn the young Luke here know how he buys with his uncle new droid. However, turned director George Lucas yet another implementation, the hatch with his buddy Biggs (Garrick Hagon) and other young people of Tatooine shows (the scene found on Disney + in the film entry for “Episode 4” under Tools).

Mark Hamill understands that Lucas was this introduction too slow and it was therefore not used – but they lacked anyway.

Luke: An apolitical outsider

In the video interview series Russo Bros. Pizza Film School, which was established by the “Avengers 4” -Regisseuren to life, says Mark Hamill:

“There are some things in the scene showing Luke’s personality well. Number one: His people make fun of him. So he’s not particularly cool or funny. […] Then he meets Biggs Darklighter and you can see that we are good friends. He has participated in an imperial uniform and I say something like, ‘Wow! That’s great. I can not wait until I come down from this garbage dump of planet and connect me to you. ‘And Biggs takes me outside and tells me that he would join the rebels as soon as that is possible. ”

Hamill liked at the scene, especially that they show Luke as apolitical young man who would also join the empire, just to get away from Tatooine (where he later told Obi-Wan says that he hates the Empire).

it is also been the death of Luke’s buddy Biggs in the earlier version of the story, the hatch was motivated to eliminate the target control in the attack on the Death Star and to rely only on the power (Biggs was one of the other rebel pilots).

Only later Obi-Wan’s voice was added, calling on the hatch, the power instead to use an electronic sighting.

The entire conversation between Mark Hamill and Marvel creators you see in the video (there comes Hamill also like to mention another romantic scene between Luke and Leia, that would later be revealed as siblings):

In the opinion of video I explain why I Lukes introduction like very much and I do not need the extra scene:

A giant explosion in the center of SpaceX. The prototype of the rocket could not stand the test [VIDEO]

The most powerful rocket in the history of mankind is born in great pains. Another prototype Starship ship made history yesterday when exploded on the test bench in the Texas Boca Chica.

Tests carried out precisely in order to obtain valuable data and thus eliminate any defects which could later lead to tragedy. But sometimes everything goes according to plan, and the final result is surprising engineers. That’s what happened yesterday in the center of SpaceX MobileTech.

Prorotyp SN4 ship recently underwent a series of five successful tests of static, but yesterday, just after the last one, something went wrong and the vehicle exploded in a spectacular way. This is the fourth prototype destroyed. According to the latest information, it could be gaping liquid oxygen tank or fuel supply system. Fans SpaceX report that the explosion was so strong that it destroyed the whole of the test bed. We must bear in mind the fact that just before the outbreak of the tanks contained trace amounts of fuel in the form of methane. If the rocket was fully fueled the, the effects of the explosion would be much greater.

Although SpaceX is already working on the successor to SN4, SN5, however, soon we will not see in action. First, you will need to rebuild the post test. For some time, we all wondered whether SN4 will take flight. Now we have confidence that SN4 not fly anywhere, and soon this maneuver will be able to see in June in the case SN5.

Since the start of the construction of the ship Starship, exploded just four prototypes. The last eruption occurred on April 3rd and the SN3 concerned. Earlier explosions took place in the past year. SN4 had a few days to rise to a height of approx. 150 meters above the surface of the test facility at the Texas company SpaceX Boca Chica.

It is worth emphasizing that this explosion has nothing planned for today astronauts manned flight-2 Dragon capsule to the International Space Station. Starship ship building program, implemented by the company SpaceX, runs independently and its goal is to build a rocket that will take people to the moon and Mars.

Capsule Dragon-2 flew astronauts to the International Space Station [VIDEO]

Twice. On Saturday (30.05) has finally managed to shoot in the direction of the International Space Station Falcon-9 rocket capsule Dragon-2, in which there were two astronauts. Here is the beginning of the era of cheap flights into space smartuser.

The first time, last Wednesday (27.05), stormy weather thwarted the plans of NASA and SpaceX, owned by Elon Musk. The second time he was successful. On Saturday (30.05) promptly at 21:22 of the famous platform LC-39A, the same, from which more than 50 years ago, there were flights to the moon in the Apollo program, launched rocket Falcon-9 capsule Dragon-2.

On board were astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley, who on Sunday (31.05) afternoon arrive on board the International Space Station, where until September will be able to enjoy breathtaking views of the Blue Planet from space. A few minutes after takeoff rocket Falcon-9, the mobile platform floating on the Atlantic Ocean defects, landed successfully main member of the rockets. It will be used in subsequent projects. Thanks to this mission was incomparably cheaper than those from the time of the shuttles, and even the recent, conducted by the Russian Sojuzy.

Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley are the first astronauts on the station reaching from the United States for nine years, so since the end of the shuttle era, and the first in history, who flew into space aboard a capsule built by a private company. In the meantime, astronauts could fly only on the Earth’s orbit Soyuz ships belonging to the Russians. They took off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

Another start-Falcon 9 rocket is scheduled for September. This time capsule on board the Dragon-2 will be four astronauts will also be aimed at the International Space Station. In the shadow of a successful manned flight-2 Dragon capsule to the ISS, SpaceX is building a much more powerful transportation system for astronauts.

This refers to the ship Starship. It will transport astronauts, not only between the surface of the Earth, the moon, as well as Moon Port Space (the successor to the International Space Station) and the surface of the moon. Elon Musk has recently announced that there will also be a modified version of the Dragon capsule with a note XL. According to the plan, the vehicle has to deliver supplies to the Moon Spaceport.

In addition to SpaceX, a manned capsule Boeing builds yet, and a small shuttle Sierra Nevada Corporation. NASA will also have your vehicle in the form of Orion. The commercial success of the first manned flight means that the Americans regained independence flights on the Space Station. It is also the first step to launch low-cost flights for all of us, eg. For the space hotels, which in the future are formed on Earth’s orbit.

See historic launch of the Dragon-2 capsule with astronauts in great quality 4K [VIDEO]

Surely most of you were disgusted poor quality video from the first start of the US astronauts in a capsule belonging to a private company. Now NASA and SpaceX is rehabilitated.

In the end, we can see the entire record of this historical event in the great quality 4K. And the movies made in a variety of shots, which are not shown during transmission. NASA and SpaceX all carefully documented in the best quality, but at the time of the broadcast audience was so large that we all had to settle for a hard-fetched HD quality. As always, everything was guilty of inefficient servers.

Astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley for a few days longer on board the International Space Station. Apart from them, the locals are: Christopher Cassidy (USA), Anatoly Iwaniszyn (Russia) and Ivan Wagner (Russia). Astronauts will remain there until September.

Another start-Falcon 9 rocket is scheduled for late August and September tech smart. This time capsule on board the Dragon-2 will be four astronauts, including three Americans and Japanese, whose purpose will also be the International Space Station.

We have found similar to the planet Earth, which revolves around the sun-like star

About this amazing discovery, astronomers inform the Max Planck Institute in Germany. These are the most faithful copies of the Earth and the Sun, which so far observed. Perhaps there is life there.

Humanity since space surveillance discovered more than 4,000 alien planets. Only some of them may be suitable for life. Scientists believe, however, that in the whole universe globes similar to Earth may be billions. The discovery of the most interesting letter appears to be only a matter of time.

Every day we are approaching the moment of detection of a second Earth, where they prevailed ideal conditions for the flourishing of biological life that we know well. Although the journey there is not yet possible for hundreds of years, it is important that we have already spare planet on which we could settle in the future for fear of a global cataclysm.

This may all seem like fiction, however, we have no other choice. Now you need to develop technologies and take steps that will allow us to adequately protect faster against the upcoming disaster. Astronomers believe that it can not be avoided, it is only a matter of time. Earth 2.0 also looking for another reason, a more existential link network. Since the dawn of time, we want to get the answer to the question of whether we are alone in the universe.

Excellent in this respect the system is going to be a star Kepler-160 and exoplanets KOI-456.04. They are 3000 years light from Earth. Lies in the so-called exoplanet. ecosphere, which means that there is a high probability of occurrence on the rocky globe filled with atmospheric oxygen and water in liquid form, i.e. the key elements necessary for the development of life.

Interestingly, recent studies show that the system Kepler-160 may be more planets. So far discovered two, and now talking about the next two. Perhaps there is intelligent life out there. Research icy moons of Jupiter and Saturn have shown us that simple forms of life can function in the most extreme conditions. This fact should still under consideration in their missions for a second Earth.

It is now certain that diet and exercise can cure more than 60% of diabetics

Over the years, the topic of diabetes treatment conducted so many tests, it is easy to get lost in all this, but the latest of them, on diet and physical activity should dispel all doubts.

Recent studies summarizing clinical tests confirm that proper diet and exercise is the main front of struggle with type 2 diabetes, which allows up to two thirds of ailing achieve remission after 12 months of lifestyle changes. It is true that for a long time, we know that proper nutrition and physical activity are crucial not only for diabetics, but all the other people who want long to enjoy good health, but have not we all want to believe that it is possible an effective fight against diabetes without any medication. The new research provides hard evidence that has been obtained from 150 diabetics participating in the tests (they were all up to 3 years from diagnosis and the average age was 42 years).

The subjects were randomly divided into two groups, that is controlled, typical of his illness care, and second, who received a special program of diet and exercise. This initially assumed 12-week low-calorie diet known as the Cambridge Weight Plan, followed by 12 weeks of changes in the generally accepted healthy diet, but set inside a fixed limit calories. What’s more, this group also had to spend a week at least 150 minutes of physical activity and making a recommendation received at least 10,000 steps a day.

After 12 months, it turned out that a person with a statistical group on a healthy diet and exercise lost weight on average 12 kg, while in the control group were only 4 kg. But what is most surprising, after 12 months, 61% of study participants from the first group could no longer be called diabetics, because their disease was in remission, that is, we are talking about the same level as in patients treated with the standard. Partly responsible for this, of course, weight loss, because as we know from many other studies, obesity has a major impact on the risk of developing diabetes.

According to Taheri Shahrad of Medicine Weill Cornell-Qatar, which in 2017 conducted a study to see how diabetes affects the weight loss itself – it seems to be a real game-changer in terms of approach to type 2 diabetes Shows that if the patient lose weight at an early stage of the disease, can completely get rid of the disease and at the same time bonding with her health problems and difficulties in everyday life PREMIUMART. Similar conclusions were reached by British scientists in 2018, who achieved complete remission of diabetes in 46% of patients who have introduced strict weight control. It should be noted that while diet and physical activity are essential for diabetics of all ages, the sooner we implement them, the better the results we achieve. There is therefore nothing else but hope that soon we will see a change in the approach to diabetes from both physicians and patients.

View of the Russian accident flying motorcycle for police officers in Dubai [VIDEO]

Valfajr is a Dubai police for several years testing a futuristic means of transport, which would allow officers to quickly and efficiently take part in actions against criminals. Unfortunately, not everything goes according to plan.

Flying motorcycle from Hoversurf resembles a water scooter Batman. Is made of lightweight materials, therefore, it weighs only 112 kg. It is equipped with four electric motors that allow the user to take your cargo weighing up to 100 kilograms. The vehicle can travel at speeds up to 100 km / h.

Scorpion is equipped with a powerful rechargeable batteries. Engineers from Hoversurf ensure that, under normal conditions, the police will be able to take flights lasting up to 25 minutes. It is enough to fall off during a patrol of the city and a large part of both the street level, as well as with a bird, see if everything is ok.

Valfajr is a Dubai police vehicle tests from 3 years with varying degrees of success. Unfortunately, just the network appeared in the movie, where we can see what we are afraid of everyone interested in such inventions. During the tests the crash. Probably there was a failure of one of the engines. As a result, the test pilot fell from the vehicle to the ground from a height of several meters.

Although the case seemed quite scary, the operator nothing serious had happened. The same can not be said about the vehicle, which is no longer suitable for further use. Rapidly rotating rotors could yet tear apart the remote control. Well, the Russian company will still have to work a bit on his invention, not to constitute a threat to police officers, citizens and tourists tech stream.

Japanese Space Agency astronaut wants to replace the robo-avatars [VIDEO]

Recently, space agencies are increasingly willing to send robots on board the ISS, which will be better than the astronauts perform complex tasks in standalone mode or with the help of operators located on Earth.

Such plans fully implemented successfully already the Russian Space Agency, the European Space Agency and the American Space Agency. The Russians sent home to the cosmic humanoid named FEDOR, robo-bees Americans and Europeans focused on spherical astrobocie called Cimon. Now with such favors you want to use the Japanese Space Agency.

As that with the implementation of new large space missions to the Moon, Venus and Mars, as well as plans to start mining the cosmic and human presence in space will become something natural and universal. Agents think therefore wyręczeniu astronauts in the toughest work of advanced robots.

The catch is that currently work, even the most advanced, there are still clumsy, find it difficult to perform the simplest of tasks rather quickly and it will not change, engineers view to developing projects robo-avatars, which will perfectly imitate the movements of the operators.

Recently announced the X-Prize competition for the first futuristic robo-human avatar PREMIUMLINKS. Teams of engineers that decide to participate in the contest and try to help in the realization of this incredible vision for the best concept can receive up to $ 10 million.

Foundation wants to work-avatars can be remotely controlled using the VR technology, at a distance of at least 100 kilometers and their operators are able to use them to pick up various items, carry heavy loads, feel the temperature is to see and hear everything that happens around the machine.

Currently, one of the pioneers in this topic Meltin is a Japanese company, which presented its robot avatar named MELTANT-α. In an extremely precise manner mimics the operator. Engineer interaction with the robot takes place in real time, with the help of controllers and VR goggles.

Man feels his own body all the movements of the robot, as well as the generated load. Presented on film you can see how incredibly precise movements can be realized with it. It’s all thanks to special polymer fibers, which are designed to mimic human tendons.

Robot avatar already in the form of surprises, let alone going to happen in a few years, when will be greatly improved. View of footage and imagine a future in which each of us will have your digital avatar and with his help we will be able to explore outer space without any restrictions.

Update Google Maps help in time travel CoVID-19

The American company has decided to update its services again, so we’ll find out, for example. How are crowded public transport or places to which we can not go due to transport limitations.

Google Maps from the beginning of the pandemic coronavirus are a very useful tool because it first appeared in the warning messages are related to CoVID-19 that appear at medical facilities, when a user searches for them. We find out then that if you suspect coronavirus infection at home, we should before going to the facility to perform there the phone to inform you about your symptoms and get tips proceedings. Then the company has published reports on the movement of the population during a pandemic for 131 countries, including Polish, from which we can learn about the number of people appearing in such places as parks, pharmacies and shops.

You also can not forget that thanks to Google Maps we check the traffic in specific stores, including the days of the week and specific hours to choose a less frequented, and then extended them for a list of restaurants available during a pandemic (delivery and self-acceptance), we They can safely order something to eat. Today, it turns out that this is not the end of the new functionality, because Google wants to improve the safety of our traveling during the pandemic, which is why Google Maps again been enhanced.

As of right now new functionalities are not available in all countries, but as is usually the case with Google in the end probably will go everywhere games art movies. A question of notifications showing the restrictions on movement during a pandemic or information about how crowded is currently in a variety of public transport. If you select the target and the road leading to it, the Google Maps inform us of the necessity of wearing a mask, designated checkpoints or other unusual difficulties arising from the pandemic.

As reported in a special Google blog post, this information is collected from local, state and federal offices and their websites. So far alerts operate in Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Colombia, France, India, Mexico, the Netherlands, Spain, Thailand, United Kingdom and the United States of course, but extend the availability is only a matter of time. What’s more, the people of Indonesia, the Philippines, South Korea and the United States can count on special reports, if you indicate that choose to point testing CoVID-19 to make sure you meet all the requirements.

Musk confirms that the Roadster package SpaceX will be equipped with “rockets”

Elon Musk and Jay Leno recently Cybertruckiem drove up to Los Angeles. TV presenter asked the head of SpaceX Roadster. Musk once again announced that it will be equipped with “rockets”.

During the first presentation of the Roadster, Elon Musk announced that the new incarnation of the athlete will be extremely fast. This is to be the best accelerator mass-produced electric vehicle in the world. Shortly after the presentation, the first lucky can a test ride a red roadster and were delighted with how powerful acceleration features.

Musk revealed that the basic production version is to achieve a hundred in 1.9 seconds and to 160 km / h will be scrambling in just 4.2 seconds. The maximum speed is expected to be 402 km / h. In the ¼ mile race car you have to be able to achieve a result below 8.9 seconds.

While all those numbers look impressive, yet the Roadster package SpaceX has to be faster. Reportedly it will be equipped with “missile system”, which means the athlete will not only be able to accelerate to hundreds in 1.6 seconds, but also faster and more efficiently inhibit overcome sharp turns.

In fact, it will be set approx. 10 boosters in the form of high-pressure tanks COPV. They are to be arranged around the car. In this version, you can not travel on the rear seats, simply because there will be a place for them, but no loss, because and so they look like child seats.

Roadster will have a futuristic glass cleaning system webtricks. Engineers want to take advantage of the latest power lasers. With the application we find out that some lasers will be installed in different parts of the Tesla vehicles. The purpose of the cameras will detect, and laser system quick and efficient removal of all kinds of pollution. It may seem that lasers do not give advice, but if they are literally on the fly burn or repel insects and floating dust, this idea may prove to be very practical.

Elon Musk tweeted, half-jokingly, half-seriously, that the Roadster package SpaceX will be able to even fly. If you believe his words, most likely on board will also rotating nozzles, which will raise the vehicle on a certain height. Maybe it will not look as if DeLoreana from Back to the Future, but as recently could see it in the case of rising motorcycle Lazareth LMV 496 (see here), so that it is used in jet turbines.

We shall see what this time come up with this crazy billionaire. At the Roadster they will have to wait two more years, because now a priority for the company is Cybertruck, been waiting for more than half a million people. Either way, the athlete from Tesla will be the cheapest and the fastest-selling series supercar on the planet and the bank will enjoy the cosmic interest, so it is worth the wait a little longer.
