The US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has confirmed that two astronauts from Saudi Arabia will travel to the International Space Station (ISS) in the spring of 2023 on a private mission operated by Axiom Space. Speaking at a meeting of the NASA Advisory Board Committee on Human Flight, Angela Hart, manager of NASA’s commercial program for the development of presence in low Earth orbit, said that two Saudi specialists will be part of the Ax-2 mission. Their flight to the ISS on the Crew Dragon spacecraft will take place no earlier than May 1, 2023. Recall that in April this year, the first fully private mission Ax-1 set off for the ISS.

The names of the Saudi astronauts have not yet been announced, but Hart said they are already training hard – training began on October 17. The identities of the astronauts will be released after formal approval by the Multilateral Crew Management Board. Earlier, representatives of Saudi Arabia said that one of the two nationals of the country who will go to the ISS will be a woman. It is also known that the Ax-2 mission will last 10 days and its participants will conduct a number of studies on the ISS. Along with astronauts from Saudi Arabia, the mission’s crew will include former NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson, who will command the Ax-2, and racing veteran and investor John Shoffner, who will take over as pilot.

A photo of the device appeared on the Web, where you can see a giant block located in the center of the upper part and occupying a huge area of ​​\u200b\u200bthe back cover. In addition, he looks very unusual.

The image quality leaves much to be desired, and one might think that this is just someone’s imagination, but the fact is that back in October this device was listed in the FCC database with exactly the same design. Of course, this does not mean that the existing photo is not a fake, but at least this is the design that a smartphone should have, since the data in the controller database cannot be false.

Earlier, Tecno also said that this smartphone will receive SoC Dimensity 9000, that is, it will be the company’s first flagship-level device, at least based on the platform. The source also talks about a 6.8-inch curved 120Hz AMOLED screen.

Recall that Realme 9 Pro + is based on this SoC, that is, the new smartphone will not be better than the old one. True, in fact, the difference between the Dimensity 920 and 1080 is minimal, so in practice it can hardly be felt. But still, technically, we are talking about the fact that in some countries the Realme 10 Pro + will be worse than in others.

Recall that the smartphone is also equipped with a curved screen with a very thin frame, a 108-megapixel camera and 67-watt charging.
