The Chinese National Space Administration has received permission to send three unmanned vehicles to the moon within 10 years as part of the Chang’e space program, said Liu Jizhong, an official at the China Center for Lunar Research and Space Programs. This was reported by Bloomberg with reference to China Central Television (CCTV).

The announcement came a day after China’s Global Times reported that China had discovered a new mineral in the lunar soil during the Chang’e-5 mission. It is called “Change Stone” (Changesite-(Y)) is a colorless transparent columnar crystal containing helium-3, which is considered as a source of energy in the future.

This mineral was the sixth new mineral discovered by people on the moon. Our country became the third in the world to discover a new mineral”, — pointed out the national space administration of China. For China, this discovery on the moon was the first.

The Chang’e lunar program was established in 2004 and was named after the Chinese moon goddess. Recently, the missions of the program have been focused on collecting samples from the lunar surface. The Chang’e 7 mission will target the south pole of the moon, which scientists say is the best place to find water. NASA is also targeting this part of the moon, writes Bloomberg. China’s rampant ambitions in space put it in direct competition with the United States, the agency said. In addition, China intends to build an international research station on the moon.

10 year old Samsung Galaxy Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 received

Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 smartphones received Android 13, but not official – as part of the LineageOS project and LineageOS 20 firmware.

10-year-old Samsung Galaxy Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 received Android 13. True, unofficial

We are talking about an early assembly of LineageOS 20, in which a number of functions do not work: NFC, Bluetooth sound transmission during a call, memory card. Known issues are expected to be fixed as the firmware is updated.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 are ten years old, and you should not expect older devices running the latest Android 13 to run smoothly. Both smartphones had flagship specs for their time, but the 1GB and 2GB of RAM in the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 might not be enough for a full system at the moment.

Recall that the basic versions of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 were running Android 4.0.4 and 4.1.1, respectively. Android 4.3 and 4.4.4, respectively, were released as the final software versions for these smartphones.

The Radeon RX 6800 XT can be made as fast

The GeForce RTX 40 graphics cards are already presented and will soon begin to hit the market, and the Radeon RX 7000 will also be released towards the end of the year. But is it worth buying new ones if you can get by with the RX 6000 line, significantly speeding it up?

The Radeon RX 6800 XT can be made as fast as the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.  RMP application introduced

Renowned developer and enthusiast Yuri Bubliy (1usmus) created the Radeon Monster Profile (RMP) application, which allows you to significantly increase the performance of current generation AMD adapters. From the name it is clear that in fact we are talking about overclocking profiles, but not everything is so simple. The author describes his brainchild as a combination of unique settings and voltage parameters. Thanks to RMP, the performance of RX 6000 cards can be significantly improved.

As you can see, for example, Yuri took the RX 6800 XT, the core frequency of which, thanks to the settings, increased by 300 MHz, which provides an increase of 11-13% and allows this card to bypass the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti at least in 3DMark, which even now is almost twice as expensive. At the same time, the profiles are designed in such a way that the operating voltage is reduced by 6%, which allows you not to worry about excessive heating.

The application is expected later this year.

The smartphone was dismantled on the PBKreviews channel, while it received very good reviews for maintainability. After all, battery replacement is one of the most popular types of repair.

Samsung used standard Phillips screws. In addition, the 3.5mm headphone jack is on a separate module that is held in place by a screw. It takes some disassembly to get to it, but it’s not soldered to the board. The USB-C charging port is on a separate circuit board, and there are spring contacts underneath it and below the speaker assembly.

At 9.9mm thin and 235g, the Samsung Galaxy Xcover6 Pro is thicker and heavier than most phones with 6.6-inch displays and 4050 mAh batteries for the sake of security and repair-friendly design.
