SpaceNews, citing Chinese sources, reported that China has successfully tested a nuclear reactor designed for spacecraft. The reactor was designed by the Chinese Academy of Sciences and produces 1 MW of power. Such an installation can be used both to power the power systems of the spacecraft and to power its engine.

China has successfully tested a nuclear reactor for spacecraft

The reactor passed a comprehensive performance evaluation by the Ministry of Science and Technology of China on August 25. Interestingly, since that moment, all reports or mentions of him on the Web have been deleted – and this despite the fact that no technical details were reported.

There is evidence that the development of a space nuclear reactor was initiated in 2019 as a key component of the national space research and development program. It should be noted that China is not alone in its desire to use a nuclear facility for advanced space missions – Roscosmos is following the same path with its Zeus nuclear tug. Solar panels are not suitable for deep space exploration, since at a considerable distance from the Sun they do not provide sufficient energy generation, for such missions nuclear power plants are created.

What will the Pixel 7 and iPhone 14 have in

It seems that the new generation of Pixel smartphones will differ little from the current models. At a minimum, according to recent data, this will affect the younger Pixel 7 model.

What will the Pixel 7 and iPhone 14 have in common?  New Google will be little different from its predecessor

According to insider Yogesh Brar, who at one time provided correct data about the Pixel 6, Pixel 7 will not receive any important differences from its predecessor. It will have the same 8 GB of RAM, the same 128 or 256 GB of flash memory, the same based camera with 50 and 12 MP sensors. The front camera will be new, but it’s an 11-megapixel sensor from the Pixel 6 Pro.

SoC Tensor G2 will also be new, but so far all data indicates that the processor part of this platform will be the same as that of the current Tensor, only with slightly increased frequencies. The screen will retain the resolution and frame rate of 90 Hz, but, unexpectedly, will become a little smaller: 6.3 inches versus 6.4 inches. Apparently, Google heard users and journalists who said that there is not much difference in size between the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, and both feel large. True, it is not a fact that reducing the screen will lead to a decrease in size.

As for the battery, its capacity will allegedly be 4700 mAh, which is only slightly more than 4614 mAh for the Pixel 6.

As a result, the situation with the Pixel 7 will be similar to the iPhone 14, when there are very few differences from its predecessor, and there are no serious ones at all.
