China is preparing to launch a heavy carrier rocket Long March-5B Y3 (Long March-5B) from the Wenchang Cosmodrome on Hainan Island. China’s Manned Space Program Office (CMSA) announced this. The rocket will deliver the Wentian laboratory module for China’s Tiangong orbital station into orbit. The launch of Long March 5B will take place at the end of July.

With a mass of 23 tons, the Wentian will be the largest single module in the Tiangong. In fact, at the moment, Tiangong is represented by only one base module, Tianhe, but Wentian will soon join it. In October, China will send the third module, Mengtian, into orbit, after which the national station will acquire the final configuration and its completion will be completed.

“Wentian” didn’t just turn out to be so big. In addition to special equipment for conducting experiments, it has three sleeping areas, a sanitary unit and a kitchen. Its inclusion in the Tiangong will allow up to six cosmonauts to be placed on the station during a crew change.

As for the Long March 5B, it is noticeably different from the Long March 5. Thus, the Long March 5 is a high-orbital rocket, the spacecraft launched by it are sent to a distance of 30,000 to 40,000 kilometers from the Earth. For example, it was used to launch the Martian and lunar probes. Long March 5B is not capable of flying that far, but it is not required: the national station is about 400 km from Earth. Long March 5B is three meters shorter than Long March 5B, but the diameter is the same – 5 meters, and both are equipped with four liquid boosters (side).

WhatsApp users will be banned from taking screenshots of files

WhatsApp developers are working on a new feature that will prevent users from taking screenshots and capturing video from the screen when opening files for a one-time view. The innovation has already been implemented in the beta version of the messenger for Android.

WhatsApp users will be banned from taking screenshots of files for one-time viewing

So, in the future mobile version of WhatsApp, users will be notified before sending a file with a single view that the recipient will be able to open the photo or video only once and will not be able to resend it to anyone, save it, copy it or take a screenshot. There are no such notifications or warnings in the current version of WhatsApp. True, at the same time, nothing prevents the recipient from recording a video or photographing content on another smartphone.

Recall that recently the release of a full-fledged WhatsApp client for desktop PCs and laptops running Windows took place.

Naturally, this does not mean at all that all these models will immediately stop receiving software updates – fresh firmware for them will continue to be released for a long time, as beta versions are transferred to the release (final) status. However, we can already say that these models will not receive anything fresher than MIUI 13 (MIUI 14 will not be released until November).

Xiaomi also announced the recruitment of participants in the Android 13 beta testing group for the Redmi K50 Gaming Edition gaming smartphone – the test will be launched before the end of this month.
