Giant potentially dangerous asteroid flew past the Earth

According to NASA, a giant potentially dangerous asteroid that flew past the Earth on Thursday, April 28. The asteroid, named 418135 (2008 AG33), ranges in size from 350 to 780 meters.

Flying past our planet, it moved at a speed of 37,400 km / h, that is, about 30 times faster than the speed of sound. At the same time, he passed at a distance of 3.2 million kilometers, which is about eight times the average distance between the Earth and the Moon. This may seem like a long distance, but space observers say that by space standards it is very close.

NASA labels any space object approaching Earth within 193 million kilometers as a “near-Earth object,” and any fast-moving object within 7.5 million kilometers is labeled “potentially hazardous.” Once objects are tagged, astronomers watch them closely, looking for any deviations from their predicted trajectory that could cause them to hit the Earth.

An approaching such an asteroid was first detected on January 12, 2008 by researchers at the Mt. Lemmon SkyCenter in Arizona. It passed Earth for the last time on March 1, 2015, approaching approximately every seven years. The next close flyby is predicted to occur on May 25, 2029.

But the asteroid 467460 (2006 JF42), which has an estimated diameter of 380 to 860 m and will move at a speed of approximately 40,700 km / h, will fly past us on May 9, 2022.

By the way, space agencies around the world are already working on ways to possibly change the course of asteroids that could threaten the Earth. On November 24, 2021, NASA launched the spacecraft as part of its Double Asteroid Redirect Test Mission, which plans to redirect a non-hazardous asteroid by knocking it off course.

AMD is indeed going to launch Ryzen Threadripper 7000 processors in the second half of this year. Previously, these were just rumors and leaks, and now this was announced by an Asus representative.

But Intel only managed to release competitors for the Threadripper 5000. Asus confirms that the Ryzen Threadripper 7000 will be released in the second half of the year

Interestingly, he mentioned this in a video demonstrating the work of the Intel Sapphire Rapids WS platform, the processors of which are currently competing with the Threadripper 5000, but soon they will have to compete with the Threadripper 7000.

Threadripper 7000 will switch to a new socket and a new Zen 4 architecture. This will bring them support for DDR5 memory, probably PCIe 5.0 interface. In addition, the top-end Threadripper 7000s are expected to be 96-core, just like their sister Epyc Genoa.
