Geophysicist Hiroyuki Tanaka of the University of Tokyo put forward the idea of ​​simultaneously synchronizing clocks around the globe using cosmic rays. According to him, the principle is simple, and the technology to do this already exists.

Atomic clocks can keep accurate for decades, but they are expensive and difficult to synchronize in remote areas. Synchronization by satellite signals also has problems in the regions of the poles, under water and in the mountains.

Hiroyuki Tanaka proposed a new method – space time synchronization (CTS). It is based on the use of so-called extensive air showers arising from cosmic rays entering the atmosphere.

These rays create a “shower” of various particles, including muons flying towards the Earth at near-light speed and therefore reaching the earth’s surface at the same time. By recording their arrival, CTS devices can synchronize with each other in real time. “The principle is simple, and the technology, sensors and electronics already exist. So we can implement this idea pretty quickly.”, the author believes. According to him, clocks can be synchronized throughout the planet in this way, since showers of particles occur frequently.

The electric version of the best selling car in the US

Ford has finally begun shipping its F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck to retail customers.

The electric version of the best-selling car in the US.  Ford F-150 Lightning finally started shipping to retail customers

The company started production of the machines last month, and now the machines have begun to arrive to customers. The very first such lucky person is captured in the photo above.

A resident of Michigan booked a Platinum Trim Lightning package on May 20 last year, and he received the car on May 26 of this year, that is, almost exactly a year later. Interestingly, this person owns a Tesla Model 3, has already posted a Cybertruck deposit, and was considering buying a Rivian R1T.

Since the Ford F-Series is the best-selling car in the US, it’s no surprise that the company has amassed a huge amount of pre-orders for the electric version, and right now Ford can’t say exactly when it will be able to fulfill all these orders. This year, the company is going to produce only 40,000 cars, despite the fact that orders have been collected at least 200,000.

Including subsidies, the car in the US starts at $40,000.

Telegram Premium is getting closer the messenger will no

Since its global launch, the Telegram messenger has positioned itself as a “free forever” product. This message appeared when installing the program on Android. More precisely, the slogan was: “Telegram is free forever. Without advertising. No subscription fees.” But now it looks like things are about to change.

Telegram Premium is getting closer - the messenger will no longer be “free forever”

Developer Alessandro Paluzzi said that the text of the slide has changed in the section with translations for the client applications of the messenger. Now it looks like this: “Telegram offers free unlimited cloud storage for chats and media files.” Although there has been no official statement from the developers so far, it can be assumed that this is preparation for the launch of Telegram Premium.

In the fall of 2021, advertising appeared in the messenger: ads began to be displayed in large channels and groups. Premium features were also previously announced: in particular, paid account holders will receive a special badge next to their name, full-screen emojis and some other features will be available to them.

Thus, Telegram plans to improve the monetization of the product.
