Our planet could have been a Super Earth or not even existed



If we look at the Saturn’s rings, we see that they present a flattened shape Due to the centrifugal force exerted by the materials around it. The Sun, in the early days of the Solar System, also had rings around it. And this influences why the Earth is not bigger.

The earth is he largest rocky planet in the Solar System, but without becoming a super land. The calls “super lands» are terrestrial planets that orbit around the stars and that are larger than our planet, and that form around the 30% of exoplanets rocks that have been discovered so far.

Pressure zones, keys in the creation of the Earth

However, our planet did not reach such a large size due to small pressure areas in those early solar rings, as detailed in new research published in the Nature Astronomy. The team behind the research, including members from Rice University, the University of Bordeaux, the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colo., and the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy in Heidelberg, ran hundreds of supercomputer simulations to recreate the formation. Of the solar system.

In it they found three high pressure bands in the early solar accretion disk, which may explain the composition of the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter and the formation of the kuiper belt beyond Neptune. They can also explain the nearly circular orbits of the four inner planets, their composition, and their various sizes.

Solar system

These high pressure areas can concentrate powder and act like planet factories as material accumulates. To simulate this, they used first dust, then planetesimals, and finally planets. According to their proposal, they claim that the pressure spikes produced deposits of material in the inner and outer zone of the solar system, and regulated the amount of material available for the planets to grow in the inner zone.

Earth might not have existed

If the disk had been uniform in its composition, the present solar system could have been very different from the present one, since the dust particles they would have gone to inner zone and they would have been lost in the Sun. Therefore, there had to be something for them to become planets.

At those high-pressure points, the gas is denser and gas particles move faster, helping to slow down heavier material like dust and rocks, helping them accumulate into planets.

The fact that we don’t live in a super earth is good, since a Super Earth with a size 10 times larger would have a grave 10 times larger. If you weigh 70 kg on Earth, on that planet you would weigh 700 kg, which would have considerably changed the type of life that formed on Earth. With such high gravity, a magnetic field may not have formed to protect us from ultraviolet radiation, and the solar winds would have destroyed any type of atmosphere, as is the case on Mars, for example.

With these conditions, the astronomers they have more information when it comes to identifying possible planets that can harbor life, since excessively large planets present problems such as the one we mentioned, of being able to maintain an atmosphere around them.

Foxconn simultaneously asked employees to leave “iPhone city” for $1400 and stay for even more rewards



Foxconn simultaneously asked employees to leave iPhone city for 1400

Foxconn, also known as Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., said over the weekend that it will increase to more than $1,800 per month in December and January for permanent employees, including those who joined the company in November.

Foxconn’s generosity comes from the company’s desire to restore assembly as quickly as possible after weeks of Covid restrictions, culminating in last week’s riots. The Zhengzhou campus, which has more than 200,000 employees, assembles the vast majority of iPhone Pro models.

As we reported, the company offered each protester about $1,400 to quit and leave the plant. A Reuters source familiar with the situation confirmed that more than 20,000 workers agreed to Foxconn’s offer.

Foxconn simultaneously asked employees to leave

Apple said it is working closely with Foxconn to restore production to its previous pace, and both companies have expressed their commitment to keeping workers safe.

Earlier this month, analysts at Morgan Stanley slashed their estimates for the current-quarter iPhone Pro release by 6 million units. In a worst-case scenario, if extended lockdowns affect assembly in Zhengzhou, Foxconn risks losing up to 36% of iPhone revenue, or 20% of total sales for the quarter.

Previously known insider Ben Geskin posted a video showing clashes between workers and security at the Foxconn plant.

A few hours earlier, Ice Universe published a new image of the flagship smartphone Xiaomi 13, which will receive a flat screen with a narrow frame around the entire perimeter. On the sides and top, the width of the frame will be 1.61 mm, and at the bottom of the screen it will have a width of 1.81 mm. In this case, the effective display area will be 93.3%.

Ice Universe was the first to accurately talk about the new trend of smartphones with waterfall screens, the notch in the iPhone X, the new design of the iPhone 14 and Samsung’s 200-megapixel image sensor. Recently, he was the first to accurately report that Redmi Note 12 Pro + will receive a 200-megapixel main camera. Exclusive information about new products is leaked to him by sources in the research and development department of the South Korean giant.
