Mitsubishi SpaceJet

The Mitsubishi SpaceJet known as the Mitsubishi Regional Jet, or MRJ for short, is a twin-engine regional jet aircraft seating 70–90 passengers manufactured by Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation, a partnership between majority owner Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and minority owner Toyota Motor Corporation with design assistance from Subaru Corporation, itself an aerospace manufacturer. The SpaceJet will be the first airliner designed and produced in Japan since the NAMC YS-11 of the 1960s, produced at a loss; the first flight of the MRJ was in November 2015. After several delays, deliveries were scheduled to start by mid-2020 delayed again in late 2021 or in 2022. In 2003 the Japanese government started a five-year, ¥50 billion research program to study an indigenous regional jet for 30 to 90 passengers, led by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. In 2004 MHI was focused on a 2m high by 2.8m-wide, four-seat-abreast cabin, seating 30 to 50 passengers, was hoping to fly a prototype in 2007 and deliver the first aircraft in 2010.

In 2005 it switched to a larger 70-90 seat category. MHI launched its concept at the 47th Paris Air Show in June 2007, showing a full-scale cabin mock-up and aiming to be the first regional jet all-composite airframe, with certification targeted for 2012. Mitsubishi formally offered the MRJ to airlines in October 2007 - the first Japanese airliner since the NAMC YS-11 production stopped in 1974 - after being the first airframer to select the Pratt & Whitney PW1000G geared turbofan offering a 12% reduction in thrust specific fuel consumption, rated at 15,000 lbf thrust on the 70- to 80-seat MRJ70 and 17,000 lb thrust on the 86- to 96-seat MRJ90, projecting a ¥150 billion development cost. MHI launched the Mitsubishi Regional Jet Program on March 28, 2008 with an order for 25 aircraft from All Nippon Airways, targeting a 2013 introduction. Mitsubishi is targeting a 20% share of 5,000 sales forecast in the 70-90-seat bracket over 20 years. Flight testing was scheduled for late 2011 and the $1.9-billion programme necessitates 300-400 sales to recoup its cost.

In September 2009 Mitsubishi unveiled extensive design changes, using aluminium instead of carbon fibre composites for the aircraft's wings and wingbox. The cabin height is increased by 1.5 in to 80.5 in and the fuselage height is increased to 116.5 in, giving a rounder cabin and higher than its competition. The program was delayed six months with final design frozen in mid-2010, first flight delayed to the second quarter of 2012 and deliveries to early 2014. Maintenance intervals are 750 flight hours per A 7,500 flight hours per C check; as the MRJ90 MTOW of 39.6 t is above the US regional carriers scope clause of 39 t, SkyWest and Trans States Holdings could convert their MRJ90 orders for 100 and 50 to the 1.4 m shorter MRJ70: 67% of the 223 firm MRJ90 orders. But the MRJ70 seats only 69 in two classes and attain the 76 seats scope close limit only in all-economy: Mitsubishi wants to increase seating within its fuselage to compete with the compliant Embraer E-175 and Bombardier CRJ900. Mitsubishi is working on a three-class, 76-seat design, with more premium seating than the MRJ70 but still within the scope-clause 86,000 lb MTOW, to be unveiled at the June 2019 Paris Air Show.

The reworked MRJ70 will be called the Space Jet M100, its type certificate is expected in 2022 and Mitsubishi considers U. S. production. Program cost is expected to reach ¥800 billion by the 2020 debut of the SpaceJet M90. On 15 September 2010, the Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation announced that it had entered the production drawing phase and was proceeding with the manufacturing process. Assembly of the first aircraft began in April 2011 with construction of the emergency escape for the cockpit. In April 2012, first flight was delayed to 2013. In December 2012, the MRJ90s delivery was scheduled for 2017. In early 2013, Pratt & Whitney delayed the PW1200G certification to the "latter half" of 2014, after the MRJ first flight scheduled for late 2013. On 22 August 2013, Mitsubishi announced a third delay to the program, that the first flight would take place in the second quarter of 2015 instead of end-2013, while the first delivery to launch customer ANA would take place in the second quarter of 2017 instead of 2015, due to parts delivery problems including Pratt & Whitney engines.

On 7 September 2013 were exhibited a prototype of the left wing and four aluminium sections: forward fuselage, front mid fuselage, aft mid fuselage and aft fuselage, to be assembled in October 2013. Mitsubishi has hired foreign experts to help with relations with suppliers, ground tests, flight tests, certification. Pictures of the first assembled MRJ90 were available on 26 June 2014. An official rollout occurred on 18 October 2014; the maiden flight of the MRJ90 took place on 11 November 2015. On 24 December, Mitsubishi announced a one-year delay for the first delivery of the MRJ, to mid-2018; the delay was attributed to insufficient wing strength and the redesign of the landing gear for better safety. Much of the flight testing for the MRJ90 will take place in Moses Lake, Washington, at the Grant County International Airport, due to the crowded airspace in Japan causing scheduling difficulties. Static strength tests were completed on November 1, 2016 and confirmed that the airframe could withstand 1.5 times the maximum load.

In January 2017, a further two-year delay was announced, pushing the expected first delivery to mid 2020. This resulted from moving the avionics bay and wiring looms and in March the flight certification program was exten

Jewellery chain

Fine metal chains are used in jewellery to encircle parts of the body, namely the neck and ankles, they serve as points to hang decorative charms and pendants. Unlike industrial or chains for other purposes, jewellery chains or body chains are designed for aesthetic purposes. Jewellery chains are made from precious metals gold and silver. Platinum and steel may be used; these metals are used because they are not reactive, keep both their intricate shape and their strength, require only minimal maintenance to keep their shine. Small lever mechanisms called findings serve as fastenings to enable the chain to be undone and redone. Belcher: This is similar to the trace, a belcher chain link is wider than its thickness; the links are round, but the shape of the link can vary. Prince Of Wales: This chain consists of a twisting chain made of small circular links, where each single link has no less than four others joining into it. Spiga: Spiga is formed of small figure-eight links which form a 3D chain that feels square, looks as though the wire has been plaited.

Anchor: The anchor chain copies the style of the chain that holds large anchors on ships, an oval link with a dividing bar through the middle. The interlinking sections may trace style. A version called Maritime where only every other link is an anchor link. Snake: Snake chain is a tight-linked chain that has a round or square cross-section and has links that create a slight zigzag look. Bead: Bead chain is formed of small balls of metal joined by small lengths of wire, not longer than each bead in between. Has its own'snap over the first link' fastening. Larger steel versions are more used to hold ID cards than in jewellery, but finer ones may be found for the purpose. Fancy: A "fancy" chain can be anything. Many fancy chains are variations of the standard styles, for example a trace chain formed of heart-shaped links or a curb chain with every other link set with a gemstone. Manin gold chain

Aleksandr Lazutkin

Aleksandr Ivanovich Lazutkin is a Russian cosmonaut. Lazutkin received a mechanical engineering degree, he was selected as cosmonaut on March 3, 1992. His first spaceflight was Soyuz TM-25. Lazutkin has said. Lazutkin was aboard the Mir Space Station when a collision occurred with the unmanned Progress M34, its supply craft, piloted by Vasily Tsibliyev while on the Mir; the collision, considered the worst in the history of the space age, knocked out the Spektr's solar panels and took the Mir out of its alignment with the sun causing it to lose power. It caused the cabin to decompress. Quick action by the three crewmen managed to stave off immediate disaster. Lazutkin and fellow crewman Michael Foale severed the connecting cables with the module and sealed off the hatches to the module, saving the rest of the station. Lazutkin managed to cut some of the wires connecting the Mir and the Spektr using a tiny dinner knife. A few days after the collision and Lazutkin were ordered to attempt to repair the Mir.

Foale was ordered to the Soyuz-TM escape pod. The station was secured safely

Gandzieli-Gegelia

Gandzieli was a noble family of Dukes and of Marquesses in the Kingdom of Georgia, in the period between 1083 and 1727. According to an extensive study of the surnames of Georgian nobility by Prince Vakhushti Bagrationi, Gandzieli's held the dukedom in Gandza Armenia part of Azerbaijan. Gandzielis lost their dominance over the Armenian duchy in 1727, as a consequence of the "lowering of the Kingdom of Armenia" and moved to Principality of Ksani, Georgia. However, due to the failure to sustain power in Gandza, the Georgian monarch Vakhtang VI of Kartli lowered Gandzielis to the rank of Aznauri, equal to that of Marquess at the time. In Ksani, Gandzielis assumed the title of the Royal Aznauri of Ksani, the highest of all the Aznauri degrees and led the court of the Principals of Ksani alongside other noble families. Gandzielis have been mentioned in the Treaty of Georgievsk as the Royal Aznauris of Ksani Principality alongside several other noble families. However, Gandzielis moved to the Kingdom of Imereti where their surname changed to that of Gegelia.

This occurred "due to the linguistic traditions" of the Imereti people as Bagrationi reported in his study. One branch of the Gegelia family of Aznauris moved to the Kingdom of Odishi, the late Samegrelo, where they governed the marquisate of Martvili and Taleri until the Communist Red Army invasion of Georgia in 1921. Gegelias nowadays reside both in Samegrelo regions of Georgia. Dukes of Gandza Royal Marquesses of Salkhino and Taleri His Ducal Serene Highness His Nobleness Georgian Genealogy Martvili Monastery
