Scientists have found new evidence of possible life on Saturn’s moon

An international team of scientists has found new evidence in favor of the hypothesis of possible life on Enceladus, one of Saturn’s moons. Researchers led by geochemist Hao Jihua University of China have suggested that the ocean of Enceladus, covered with a layer of ice, may contain dissolved phosphorus, an element necessary for biological life. This was reported by the Xinhua news agency.

Phosphorus is an essential component of bones, cell membranes and DNA in humans and animals. Previously, scientists have discovered hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen and sulfur on the satellite – elements important for the emergence of life. But due to the lack of phosphorus, Enceladus was considered uninhabited.

Researchers led by Hao Jihua created a model of the interaction of water and rocks of the rocky bottom of the Enceladus ocean.

The ocean water on the planet turned out to be very alkaline (very salty) and devoid of oxygen, similar to the sparkling water that people drink on Earth.,” Hao Jihua’s agency was quoted as saying. According to him, in such a “soda” environment, phosphorus from rocks would take about 100 thousand years to dissolve in the ocean.

Hao Jihua noted that an ocean could have existed on Enceladus for more than 100 million years. Given this, scientists have suggested that the moon’s rocks could release a significant amount of phosphorus into the ocean during this time.

The research paper was published in the scientific journal Proceedings of the US National Academy of Sciences.

Lenovos first AI laptop will be very quiet but not

Lenovo has published a teaser dedicated to its first AI laptop – Xiaoxin Pro AI Ultrabook 2024. One of the main features of the device will be low noise level.

Lenovo's first AI laptop will be very quiet, but not always.  Details about Xiaoxin Pro AI Ultrabook 2024

The image shows the cooling system of the Xiaoxin Pro AI Ultrabook 2024. Everything here is pretty standard for a model that does not have a dGPU: two heat pipes and two fans. The creators say that the minimum noise level of the system will be only 17 dBA, and this is really low. But there is a nuance: we are talking about noise at the minimum fan speed in energy saving mode. And although Lenovo says that the laptop’s performance in this mode will be high, it will still be far from what the Core Ultra processor can show in maximum performance mode.

The official premiere of the new product, apparently, will take place this week – immediately after Intel introduces the CPU Core Ultra. Lenovo Xiaoxin Pro AI Ultrabook 2024 will receive 32 GB of RAM, a 1 TB SSD, an 84 Wh battery (the predecessor has 75 Wh) and support for 100-watt charging.

The iPhone 16 and Galaxy S24 lines will not receive

Samsung smartphones from the Galaxy S24 line and devices from the iPhone 16 line will likely retain the same RAM options that current models currently have.

The iPhone 16 and Galaxy S24 lines will not receive an increase in RAM compared to their predecessors, despite the hype around AI

Analysts at Mizuho Securities, cited by insider Revegnus, say that the growing demand for AI should, in theory, contribute to the growth of RAM in smartphones. We previously reported that thanks to the emphasis on AI, manufacturers may begin to actively equip their smartphones with 16-24 GB of RAM.

However, a significant increase in memory prices, as well as the still missing scenarios for local AI that will run directly on smartphones, will lead to the fact that next year manufacturers will not actively increase the amount of memory. In particular, Samsung and Apple can leave everything as it is now.

This means that the iPhone 16 and 16 Plus will each receive 6 GB of RAM, and the iPhone 16 Pro and 16 Pro Max will each receive 8 GB. Samsung’s new generation flagships will have 8 or 12 GB of RAM.

It is likely that other manufacturers will not rush to increase volumes, and this, in turn, may slow down the development of local AI on smartphones.
