SpaceX is indeed planning to be the first in the new history of space exploration to land its spacecraft on the moon.

NASA and SpaceX are going to land the Starship Human Landing System space module on the Moon in a year

As part of a press conference dedicated to the return of the Orion spacecraft to Earth, NASA administrator Bill Nelson announced that SpaceX plans to land the Starship Human Landing System lander on the Moon at the end of 2023. At the moment, it is he who is the only device approved by NASA for the Artemis program, so it is he who will return people to the moon in 2024 or 2025. Next year, SpaceX plans to land an unmanned version of the module on our natural satellite.

I ask Jim Free all the time if the Starship is up to each of the benchmarks, the timelines, and I get a positive response, and in some cases the ship exceeds expectations. I’ve been to Boca Chica. This is a spectacle. How they assemble these starships and then a big booster. And their plan is that they are going to do some test flights there. And once they have the confidence, they will bring the missions to the cape, and until they get their permanent pad on the cape, they will launch from the one they are building right now, which is the outer perimeter of site 39A. You know, you are developing a new car, a new rocket. You can expect some delays, but so far I’ve been told they are on schedule.

Their plan is to make an unmanned landing in 2023, at the end of 2023, that is, in a year! And then make a crewed landing at the end of 2024. Misses are always possible because it’s a brand new system, but what they did with other systems was quite impressive.

In addition, Nelson shared the first data on the state of the Orion spacecraft after it splashed down.

As for reentry contingencies, I don’t track any issues related to separating the crew unit and service module, reorienting the ship to the reentry interface position, getting aerodynamic lock, and so on. As far as I remember, we had two long blackouts, each lasting about six minutes. After we get the capsule back to shore, we’ll have to go through the post-mission data loggers to see if anything was connected to it. But the car flew into the atmosphere without problems. As Howard had previously pointed out, the reentry guidance system was aimed precisely at the landing point. We descended within sight of the rescue ship and the car was clean after splashdown. All operating bags protecting in case of capsule overturning inflated and the machine was successfully shut down without any engine leaks, hazards or anything like that.

The team did decide, as part of their flight test objectives, to leave the ship on for two hours after splashdown to collect thermal absorption data; as we passed through the Earth’s atmosphere, the temperature outside was close to 5,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Everything was in order, all parachute openings were in order

One of the largest retail chains in India Reliance Retail

Major Indian retailer Reliance Retail has implemented support for digital rupee payments in one of its Freshpik stores and plans to expand this experience to all formats of the network.

One of the largest retail chains in India, Reliance Retail, began accepting digital rupees as part of a pilot project.

V Subramaniam, chief executive of Reliance Retail, noted that the adoption of a central bank digital currency (CBDC) is in line with the firm’s vision of providing “choice” to Indian consumers. The executive also emphasized that this initiative gives the firm the opportunity to offer an alternative payment method in its stores.

To make a purchase, customers only need to scan a QR code.

“Indians will get another efficient and secure alternative payment method” — said the top manager.

The deployment of CBDC was made possible through collaboration with ICICI Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank and Innovative Technologies.

Plans for the country’s CBDC were laid out by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on October 7, 2022. The country’s central bank has identified various factors, including the potential positive and negative impact of the digital rupee on the country. According to the RBI, one of the motivations for creating a CBDC is to reduce the operating costs of managing cash.

Overtaken by TikTok ChatGPT has become the fastest growing online

The ChatGPT neural network turned out to be the fastest growing online service in the world. It took only 2 months to reach an audience of 100 million people a month, Reuters reported. A similar figure for TikTok was reached in 9 months. The very same public version of ChatGPT was launched on November 30, 2022, and not even in all countries.

Note that other online services, social networks or platforms have reached such a figure in only a few years.

Also today, OpenAI introduced ChatGPT Plus, a paid version of the chatbot for $20 per month. However, it is only available in the US and by appointment only.

And Microsoft plans to add a new GPT-4 language model to its Bing search engine, which hasn’t even been announced yet. In addition, the ChatGPT mobile application and a neural network for generating video by text queries are expected.

It seems that Samsung took into account the problems with the Galaxy S22 line of smartphones and did not repeat them in new devices when it comes to cooling systems.

Well-known insider Ice Universe has published a visual comparison of the approximate sizes of cooling systems in each flagship of the past generation and the new one.

As you can see, all systems have become noticeably larger, and in the younger model, instead of a graphite film, an evaporation chamber has appeared.

Whether this is enough for the new products not to overheat and not throttling so much, tests will show, but the performance, as we can already see, is really good. Recall that today we also saw a comparison of the Galaxy S22 Ultra and S23 Ultra cameras.

Ice Universe was the first to accurately talk about the new trend for smartphones with waterfall screens, about the notch in the iPhone X, about the new design of the iPhone 14 and about Samsung’s 200-megapixel image sensor.
