It turned out that the Curiosity rover is very close to the place where there may be extraterrestrial life. This is indicated by methane

Scientists were able to determine the likely locations of methane emissions on the surface of Mars, and it turned out that the Curiosity rover is very close to one of them.

Over the past five years, on the Red Planet, Curiosity has recorded methane emissions six times, but scientists did not know where the sources were. Now it was possible to do this, and it turned out that the nearest source, if the calculations are correct, is located several tens of kilometers from the rover.

Methane is one of the possible signs of life, as it is emitted by numerous bacteria. Moreover, methane can exist in the atmosphere in a fixed form for only 330 years, after which it will completely collapse under the influence of sunlight. This means that if bacteria emit methane on Mars, then they should be on the planet now.

However, methane can also have a different origin, so the very fact of its detection does not reliably say anything. It is also worth keeping in mind that in all its nine years on Mars, Curiosity traveled only 25 km, so that several tens of kilometers to the alleged source of methane is hardly achievable for a rover.

According to Counterpoint analysts, the Indian smartwatch market grew by an incredible 312% in the second quarter. How much it is in quantitative terms, unfortunately, is not reported.

And the leaders here are almost never found companies that are leaders in many other markets or globally. Moreover, in just one year, the smartwatch market in India has changed a lot.

The leader here now is Fire-Bolt with 27.7%, while a year earlier it occupied only 8.9%! Noise moved to second place with 26%, Boat rounded out the top three with 19.5%. All other companies have not even overcome the threshold of 4%. The top five also includes Samsung with 3.3% and Dizo with 2.5%.

If we talk about other companies, Realme increased sales by 76%, but fell to seventh place. Apple came in eighth with a 197% increase in sales, and interestingly enough, Pebble watches, which is now owned by Mensa, are in ninth.

Of course, the above data is exactly that, because the source refers to smart watches all activity trackers that are made in the appropriate form factor. The lion’s share of them is not a full-fledged smart watch with an operating system.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra will indeed get a 200MP camera.  Samsung allegedly confirmed this to its partners

The source claims that Samsung has already confirmed this information to its partners. Recall that we have heard such rumors before. At the same time, it is not yet clear which sensor the Korean giant will use, but rumors said that this would be a solution that has not yet been announced.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra will be the only flagship device with such a camera, but that’s to be expected, as the latest generation S2x Ultra models have always had a different camera than the younger versions. At the same time, it is possible that the Galaxy S23 / S23 + can get 108-megapixel sensors, previously reserved for Ultra versions.

Recall, the other day Motorola introduced the first smartphone with a 200-megapixel camera. The Moto X30 Pro features the first of its kind Samsung ISOCELL HP1 sensor.
