The first flight of the ABL Space Systems RS1 launch vehicle turned out to be a failure. The rocket failed to reach orbit during launch on 10 January.

The company chose not to broadcast the launch online, instead publicizing the process via social media. More than 20 minutes after the scheduled launch, the company announced the failure.

After launch, RS1 encountered an anomaly and shut down prematurely. The team is working on our anomaly response procedures with PSCA and the FAA.

In subsequent updates, the company reported that nine engines in the first stage shut down at the same time, causing the rocket to hit the pad and explode. The company did not say how long after the launch the engines turned off and at what height the rocket was.

As expected in this scenario, the startup installation is corrupted. All personnel are safe, the fire has been extinguished. We will plan our return to flying once the investigation is complete. Thanks to stakeholders and the space community for their support.

“This is not the result we were hoping for today, but the one we were preparing for,” the company added.

The RS1 is a small launch vehicle being developed by ABL capable of launching up to 1,350 kg into low Earth orbit. The two-stage rocket has nine E2 engines in the first stage and one E2 engine in the upper stage, using kerosene and liquid oxygen. The missile is designed to be launched from facilities with minimal infrastructure. During its first launch, RS1 carried two small OmniTeq satellites.

Earlier, Virgin Orbit’s LauncherOne rocket encountered an anomaly during launch.

Twitch launched an endless series in the style of sitcoms

On the Twitch platform, they launched the series Nothing, Forever in the style of sitcoms of the 80s. It is notable for the fact that it is completely created using neural networks. Replicas for the series are “invented” by ChatGPT, and DALL-E, Stable Diffusion and Azure Cognitive Services generate a picture, which is then played using the Unity game engine. For voice acting, a speech synthesizer is used.

The series is constantly being created and developed based on the feedback of the viewers. At the same time, even very good jokes sometimes come across, although often the characters speak out of place or even simply remain silent. There are also animation bugs.

Overall, the visuals are similar to the first 3D PC and console games, and the scenes are fairly repetitive.

The series is based on the 1980s sitcom Seinfeld. The series can be watched here. In the future, the authors intend to create other similar projects to compete with Netflix series. They will also be endless, or at least very long.

There are currently two versions of the plugin available: $10 and $25. The first is limited to short responses of two paragraphs and uses only the ChatGPT language model. A more advanced one is devoid of such restrictions, it uses all OpenAI models. You can install the plugin through the Office Add-in Store.

In addition, the developers promise an early release of similar plug-ins for all applications from the Microsoft package: Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote. After the release of the add-on pack, users who have already purchased the plugin for Word will receive a discount.

According to Patrick Husting, who developed Ghostwriter, Microsoft will most likely disable Ghostwriter in the future when its own implementation of ChatGPT support is ready. However, this option can still be used.

Earlier it was reported that Microsoft has already added support for the GPT-3.5 model to Teams Premium, which will allow the neural network to listen to conversations, draw notes and plans based on the results. Microsoft also plans to add ChatGPT to the Bing search engine, but there, according to rumors, there will already be GPT-4.

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra vs iPhone 14 Pro Max in

Despite the fact that there are still two weeks before the start of sales of Samsung Galaxy S23 smartphones, full reviews of the camera of the older novelty have already been published on the Web.

Unfortunately, although the comparison is voluminous, it is far from being as informative as it happens on some other channels. However, there is still a lot of information.

As you can see, in low light, the brainchild of Samsung shows a wider dynamic range and detail. This is true for all cameras, including the ultra wide and tele cameras. But when shooting video at night, everything is not so clear. At least the Korean smartphone has a lot more noise and slower autofocus.

Of course, Samsung easily wins in the comparison of cameras, because it has two of them at once. Already at 10x zoom, the difference is very noticeable, and the iPhone cannot offer more than 15x at all.

Cinematic Mode on the iPhone clearly looks better, in addition, we can note a fairly significant difference in color reproduction, both in the photo and in the video.
