It's powerful when the time comes to look for new funding.
Like any other site, this site is about that what the editors choose. Not the people consuming the information. It is the case for any type of media... why would you believe it is any different with this one?
You are always free to write your thoughts to the editors or to the editor who accepted the submission. Ranting about it is probably the least helpful thing one can do.
"[...] because it clearly denotes in human language places that you've spent enough time to use the Wi-Fi."
I though driving by an open hotspot on the highway was enough time to use it. At least they would know on which Highway I drove.
Although alternative spelling may be current, there is only one correct spelling. Ignoring the correct spelling, doesn't make the common alternative spelling suddently correct.
No. The correct spelling is "voilà".
No, but in front of a rear-view mirror...
That's why the car is filled with other systems doing the feeling and adjusting for the driver, systems such as the ESP. it becomes essential in cars where de driving feeling disappears.
But its Mercedes... I drive regularly fully equipped E class Mercedes. It's awful. Its full of systems driving for you and taking decisions for you... It can go as far as breaking you on the highway. These cars are at 90 degrees of the "driving feeling" concept.
They all work this way. Doing a high speed train without such a system is not practical because it limits the speed for a lot of curves. The ICE 3 was the first to implement it to my knowledge.
I bet it would sell, a car that considerably leans outwards... "Feel the weightlessness in those curves".
But you wouldn't get it through the telemetry data feed. You'd have to have an separate analog transmitter just for the video feed. I'd say that it would be worth it if the video feed was critical. I doubt it is... it's most likely only a nice to have feature.
The technical challenges of running a telemetry link with something falling through the sky from a moving aircraft has little to do with that of plugging two televisions together over a wired network. I'd expect the bandwidth for the video to be, in fact, comparable to that of a dial modem, especially considering that the bandwidth is shared with a lot of other housekeeping data which are probably much more important and useful than the video feed.
Don't like what A said about B? Take it up with A.
I don't know in what world you live, but in the real world, there are so many hurdels to that process that it's in many case impossible (Understand, for example, no juridical basis or not affordable).
It has long been known that what you post online[...]
How about what is online and you didn't post yourself? Oh yeah, take it up with A.
I find your view of the world quite naive. I am not convinced that the solution requested by the European Court the best is, but it's a step in the right direction.

They are not using helium as refrigerant, but as pressure transfer medium in a pulse tube for the Stirling cooler. It allows you to decouple the compressor from the cold finger and avoid the need of mechanical piston on the detector side. These detectors typically run between 40 and 80 K, too cold to use nitrogen as transfer gas, hence the use of helium. In any case, the operation range is far from the super cooled case.
No they don't. Thermal imagers typically work around 50 K (based on HgCdTe sensors). This is easy to reach with a portable device, but isn't anywhere close to super-cooled. Higher performance thermal imagers may run at 3 to 4 K, cooled with liquid helium. There you are already far away from the portable solution, and again not even close to super-cooled.
To reach super cooled temperatures (we are speaking of mK, if not uK or nK), you'll need a truck to move the stuff around. Just the ultra high vacuum vessel and the turbo pumps, allowing you to reach vacuum better than in orbit at 200 km altitude, are enough... and you haven't started to cool yet.
