Elon Musk was a bad predictor. His predictions almost never come true.

Elon Musk loves to make predictions and promises, but they are far from always accurate or even come true. The source decided to check seven predictions of the head of Tesla, and in five of them – absolute misses.

Elon Musk was a bad predictor.  His predictions almost never come true.

For example, Elon Musk promised full autopilot in Tesla electric vehicles “next year.” The first such statement was made in 2014, and then repeated almost every year. In fact, there is still no full autopilot in Tesla. As the authors of the note joke, “next year will never come.”

In 2019, Elon Musk made a prediction that in a year (that is, already in 2020), Tesla will release a million robot taxis that will compete with the Uber and Lyft services that are popular in the US. In reality, not a single robotaxi has yet been released. Tesla’s latest financial report said that robo-cars without pedals and steering wheels will appear in 2024.

Elon Musk also predicted that by the end of April, new cases of COVID-19 would practically cease to be recorded in the United States, in reality, about 20,000 of them are recorded per day.

Elon Musk is not only the head of Tesla, but also of Neuralink. He promised that Neuralink chips would be implanted in humans by 2020. In fact, clinical trials on humans have not yet begun. And the fact that monkeys with Neuralink chips play computer games … some scientists point out that such experiments have been carried out for 20 years.

The prediction, which is still difficult to verify, is about a million people living on Mars by 2050. As the authors of the note jokingly point out here, “it all depends on how many people die along the way.”

In general, despite Musk’s unconditional visionary thinking, in his statements and forecasts one should always take into account the fact that reality is often more complicated than thoughts in a person’s head. Even so smart.

Rostec introduced a portable radar system to protect against drones

Ruselectronics holding, part of the Rostec State Corporation, has developed a portable radar station (RLS) to protect critical infrastructure from small drones. This was stated in the press service of Rostec.

Rostec introduced a portable radar system to protect against drones

“The device can detect small-sized drones at a distance of more than 1,000 m, including at ultra-low altitudes. The radar was created on a domestic element base, weighs only 5 kg and can be used as a wearable device.– said the press service.

They noted that the station is capable of detecting even inconspicuous drones that are in hover mode by rotating the propellers. In addition, the device can be used to search for ground objects: the radar is able to detect a car at a distance of more than 10 km.

As part of the Ruselectronics holding, the development of the radar is carried out by the Rybinsk Instrument Engineering Plant. “The radar can simultaneously track up to 32 targets, and also work in conjunction with other radar monitoring systems. To date, the station has already passed preliminary tests.– Andrey Komogortsev, General Director of the Rybinsk Instrument-Making Plant, described the novelty.

Rostec is creating a line of various means of combating UAVs. Among them are the Rat multifunctional mobile complex with a laser destruction system, the Ataka-DBS anti-civil UAV complex and electromagnetic guns.

The GeForce RTX 3050 can now also be almost fully used for Ethereum mining. Nvidia LHR v3 security cracked 90%

The GeForce RTX 3050 can now also be almost fully

A couple of weeks ago, the LHR protection in Nvidia graphics cards was cracked, which allowed everyone to use accelerators for Ethereum mining at full capacity again. But in fact, then the protection of LHR v2 was cracked, but not LHR v3.

The GeForce RTX 3050 can now also be almost fully used for Ethereum mining.  Nvidia LHR v3 security cracked 90%

The LHR v3 version is present in Nvidia’s latest releases: RTX 3050 and RTX 3080 12GB. And it is still not completely hacked, but now the NiceHash miner is able to use 90% of the performance of these cards when mining cryptocurrency. It’s not a complete hack yet, but it’s getting very close.

Fortunately, at the moment the cryptocurrency market is in a state of decline, so it hardly makes any sense to buy the same RTX 3050 for mining, which means that gamers need not worry for now.

By the way, a large article has been published on our website with an analysis of methods for cracking Nvidia protection.

The first domestic mission to the Moon in 46 years will take place in September: the launch of the Luna-25 apparatus will take place from the Vostochny Cosmodrome

Alexander Mitkin, deputy general designer for electrical systems at NPO Lavochkin, said earlier that the launch of the first domestic mission to the moon in 46 years from the Vostochny cosmodrome is scheduled for August 22. Even earlier it was planned that the automatic station “Luna-25” will go to the Earth’s natural satellite in July. Rogozin later clarified that the launch is scheduled for the third quarter of 2022.

The main task of the mission will be to develop the basic technologies for soft landing in the circumpolar region and conduct contact studies of a given area of ​​the south pole of the moon.
