Another great day in America!!
I watched with fascination and envy as Branson and company took a joy ride into space.
Once again, an entrepreneurial spirit leads the world in exploration.
Behind the scenes it is the democracy that we live in that allows people with the right stuff (smarts and ambition) to take on unbelievably complex projects with staggering budgets and get it done.
I well remember Jeff Bezos and his little start up-Amazon selling books on line and a ton of people saying he’d never make it. Now look where they are. My Hats off!!!
By the way anyone that wants to contribute to my space ride, please contact me……..
A Virgin Galactic rocket plane carrying the company’s founder, Richard Branson, reached the edge of space on Sunday during a hotly anticipated and heavily publicized flight that made the British entrepreneur the ostensible winner of a new billionaire space race.
The launch had initially been planned for later in the summer, but it was moved up after Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, the world’s richest person, announced he would be heading to space on a rocket built by his company Blue Origin later this month. Branson has denied that there’s any competition between him and Bezos, but that hasn’t stopped the companies from quibbling over whether Sunday’s flight went high enough to count as going to space

New Sonar Survey Discovers Large Unsalvaged Sections of SB Pulaski, 1838
Jacksonville, FL, June 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire — Project partners Blue Water Ventures, Inc. (OTCPK: BWVI), Endurance Exploration Group, Inc. (OTCPK:EXPL), and Marex International, Inc. are pleased to announce the start of the 2021 Recovery season on the SB Pulaski-1838.
The M/V Blue Water Rose was deployed off the North Carolina coast in early June with specialized high resolution side-scan sonar equipment and tasked with conducting an intense, high resolution sonar imaging survey of the areas near the project’s most recently salvaged site of the SB Pulaski. The mission, led by project managers Mark Martin and Rodney Grambo, has now located and inspected several dozen additional debris fields believed associated with the SB Pulaski sinking. The debris, which includes large sections of the ship’s machinery and contents, is scattered along a drift-line of several miles. Most importantly, a new section of the wreck, believed to be the elusive stern section which has evaded us for several years, is now believed to have been located. This section includes what appears to be an approximately one-hundred-foot section of the ship’s wooden keel, and a very large concentration of shipwreck artifacts and material. The SB Pulaski’s stern section sank approximately one hour after the ship’s boilers exploded causing the ship to break into two pieces, spilling her machinery and contents while the two ship’s sections continued to float until sinking.

Apollo Future Mobility Group, Ltd. [HKSE: 0860]
Maintaining Buy Rating andTarget HK$1.50
Shift In Inverter Model Should Yield Higher Profits Starting In 2023
H1:21 Results Driven By Jewelry & The Ideenion Closing. AFMG reported first half Revenue of HK$241.1 million, beating our estimate due to much higher legacy Jewelry sales. Two IEs were delivered during the period, as expected, however Outsourced Engineering Revenue was weaker due to COVID-related delays and the Jinpeng business being booked through Ideenion, which only had roughly one month included in the period. Operating expenses were higher than expected, at HK$267.6 million, due primarily to HK$106.8 million in non-cash stock-based charges. Losses from JVs and Associates totaled HK$22.9 million. Net Loss for the period was HK$201.8 million.
Operations & Model Update. We made a number of significant changes to our model. We continued to spread out deliveries of the initial IE deliveries and pushed out EVO deliveries by six months, but added in 10 additional IE Roadster units to be delivered in the next 18 months. We also adjusted the Inverter from a license model to a product sale model, which had a significant impact on the model. Switching from a license model to an OEM model, including partnering with a European motor manufacturer for the electric motor, will push out Revenue for this product and reduce the gross margin. However, the Revenue and Net Margin from this product should be higher as compared to what the license model would have produced. We expect there will be immediate demand from OEMs to test the Inverter/Electric Motor later this year. We also made reductions to the Jinpeng JV due to COVID-related delays. The timing of EVO deliveries, Jinpeng sales growing, and commercial orders for the Inverter set up 2023 to be a big year for AFMG, and all of this still excludes the Shanghai JV, which could potentially deliver more than 1,000 Apollo-branded EVs in 2023; we will continue to hold off adding this to our model until greater detail is provided on the structure and plan for the proposed JV.
