The mission of the AIM (The Aeronomy of Ice in the Mesosphere) spacecraft, launched by NASA on April 25, 2007 using the Pegasus XL launch vehicle, is being completed.

NASA says goodbye to the AIM spacecraft.  His systems stopped responding to commands from Earth.

On Thursday, the US space agency said the spacecraft had stopped responding to commands from Earth due to a battery failure. In general, problems with the AIM battery began to be recorded back in 2019, but the probe continued to send “significant amounts of data” to Earth. But after a recent battery drain, the AIM system stopped responding. The project team will monitor the satellite for another two weeks in case it suddenly comes to life, but, apparently, this will not happen. However, it was initially assumed that AIM would work for only two years. So it has already exceeded its service life by seven times.

NASA launched the AIM mission to study noctilucent clouds, also called mesospheric clouds or night glowing clouds. They can exist for hundreds of years in the upper layers of the Earth’s atmosphere. The AIM spacecraft has proved invaluable to scientists, with data collected by it featured in 379 peer-reviewed papers.

NASA is terminating the AIM mission two months after the ERBS mission was terminated.

Intels ambitious new goal shipping 100 million AI PC processors

Even processor manufacturers are increasingly talking about artificial intelligence. So Intel said it has set an ambitious goal: to deliver 100 million AI PC processors to the market by 2025.

In this case, apparently, this means by the end of 2025, since Intel clarifies that 40 million will be delivered this year and another 60 million next year.

Let us remind you that Intel currently only has an NPU unit for working with AI in Meteor Lake mobile processors. This year we are also expecting Arrow Lake and Lunar Lake, which will also have corresponding blocks. AMD, recall, has an NPU unit in the Ryzen 7040 and the new Ryzen 8040.

At the same time, from a software point of view, all this is still relatively useless for the average user, since there is practically nowhere to use these hardware resources.

Today, pre-sales of the new Toyota Land Cruiser 250 SUV have started in China. The car is offered in four trim levels with designations atypical for Toyota – UN, ALR, ADV and LUX, prices – from 65.3 to 80 thousand dollars. That is, the Land Cruiser 250 turned out to be about 5 thousand dollars more expensive than the larger and more powerful Tank 700 Hi4-T. If we compare the cost of the Toyota Land Cruiser 250 with its American Land Cruiser (this is the same model, but they are called differently due to regional characteristics), then the “Chinese” turned out to be 10 thousand dollars more expensive.

The full premiere of the Toyota Land Cruiser 250 in China will take place during the Beijing Auto Show, which starts on April 25. Then retail prices will be announced, and they will most likely be slightly lower (the Chinese like to inflate prices at the pre-order stage). And deliveries of finished vehicles will start only in the middle of the year – July 16.

In China, as in the United States, the Toyota Land Cruiser 250 will be available with two design options – with round headlights, reminiscent of the classic Land Cruisers of the 60-70s of the last century, and with more modern rectangular lighting equipment. The dimensions of the car, let us remind you, are 4920 x 1980 x 1860 mm with a wheelbase length of 2850 mm (Land Cruiser Prado 250 has almost grown in size to Land Cruiser 300).

Like the American Land Cruiser, the Chinese car has only one power plant – a hybrid based on a 2.4-liter T24A-FTS turbo engine, producing 330 hp. All-wheel drive with two locks (interaxle and rear interaxle) is included in the base.
