By analyzing wind noise on Mars, scientists were able to understand what is below the surface of the planet.

Swiss scientists presented new results of the analysis of data received from the NASA InSight lander. As you know, earlier with the help of the probe it was possible to measure the size of the core of Mars, but the apparatus is not able to directly study the structures under the surface of the planet. In the meantime, it would provide a more complete picture of how the planet was formed. According to a publication in the journal Nature, they have now managed to get the first detailed idea of ​​what lies just below the planet’s surface and trace its history back several billion years. And all this – listening to the Martian winds.

More specifically, they analyzed the background noise (in the absence of earthquakes) collected by the InSight seismometer. On Earth, similar seismic noise is generated by the ocean, human activities and winds, but on Mars, only the third of these factors is at work. The Swiss Seismological Service (SED) has developed methods for analyzing ambient noise data to determine geological structures here on Earth, and it is these methods that SED scientists, together with their colleagues at ETH Zurich, have used to analyze data coming from InSight.

According to the results of the analysis, the top three meters in the area where InSight sat down is composed of sand, and the next twenty meters is formed by loose volcanic rock, shattered by meteorite impacts. Beneath this sand and rocks lie streams of solidified lava, separated by sediments that formed when the planet was cold and dry. Researchers believe that the uppermost lava flows formed about 1.7 billion years ago, and the deepest – 3.6 billion years ago, during a period of much greater volcanic activity.

The platform – fortunately or unfortunately – is also typical of Huawei and Honor smartphones: it’s Snapdragon 778G 4G. Both models will be presented in two versions – 8/128 and 8/256 GB. You should not count on the presence of 12 GB of RAM in these devices.

nova 10 Pro will receive a 6.67-inch OLED screen with a resolution of 2652 x 1200 pixels and a frame rate of 120 Hz. The display of the younger model corresponds in size and frame rate, but its resolution is slightly lower – 2400 x 1080 pixels.

The screen of the nova 10 Pro has a stretched oval notch that will house two sensors: the main one with a 60-megapixel sensor and an ultra-wide angle lens and an additional 8-megapixel one with a portrait lens. The embedded front camera in nova 10 has a familiar look, since it has only one module – with a 60-megapixel sensor.

The main camera in these models is represented by three modules: the main one with a 50-megapixel sensor with an RYYB pixel layout and two additional ones – an 8-megapixel one with an ultra-wide-angle lens and a 2-megapixel one for analyzing the depth of the scene. Apparently, there will be no optical stabilization system.

The battery capacity of Huawei nova 10 Pro is 4500 mAh, the device will support 100 W charging. nova 10 will receive a 4000 mAh battery with support for 66 W fast charging. The thickness and weight of the nova 10 Pro is 7.88 mm and 191 grams, while the nova 10 is more compact and lighter at 6.88 mm and 168 grams. Both models will run HarmonyOS 2.0.1.

Americans may lose Starlink SpaceX warns of the dangers of

SpaceX has warned that its Starlink broadband network will become unusable for most Americans if a proposal to use the 12GHz band for terrestrial 5G networks is approved.

US satellite broadcaster Dish Network is seeking permission to operate 5G networks in the 12GHz band, which is part of the Ku-band spectrum used by Starlink, OneWeb and other satellite operators to connect to user terminals.

In a letter to the Federal Communications Commission, SpaceX said that tests it conducted in Las Vegas show how this will cause very strong interference to Starlink users in more than 77% of cases, up to a complete loss of communication.

As a result, far fewer Americans will be able to connect with next-generation satellite services, and those who remain will experience degraded service and regular network outages.

SpaceX has claimed inaccuracies in earlier interference studies commissioned by RS Access, a holding company that, like Dish Network, holds licenses for the 12GHz band it wants to use for 5G networks in the United States.
