Space tourists stranded on the ISS delay sending NASA astronauts to the station

We already wrote that space tourists were stuck on the ISS: due to weather conditions, they will return to Earth only on April 23, and not on April 19, as previously planned. In this regard, NASA has postponed the flight of its astronauts to the ISS – the launch of the Crew Dragon spacecraft with them has been postponed from April 23 to April 26.

“Docking of the Crew Dragon ship called Endeavor [с космическими туристами] will release the docking port for the arrival of the Crew Dragon ship called Freedom, on board of which there will be another group of astronauts to work on the station. The next opportunity for a Crew-4 crew to launch is April 26 at 04:15 AM ET (11:15 AM BST). Additional start dates – April 27 and 28″– the agency indicated, specifying that NASA would like at least two days to pass between the splashdown of the Crew Dragon with tourists and the launch of Freedom, which are necessary to analyze flight data from Endeavor.

Tourists – former NASA astronaut Michael Lopez-Alegria and three businessmen from the United States, Israel and Canada – Larry Connor, Eitan Stibbe and Mark Paty – arrived at the ISS on April 9, it was assumed that they would spend eight days on the orbital complex. But we had to delay, because in the splashdown area, off the coast of Florida, there are now unfavorable weather conditions that could prevent us from picking up a crew in the ocean.

The Freedom spacecraft will launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida. NASA astronauts Chell Lindgren, Robert Hynes and Jessica Watkins, as well as European Space Agency representative Samantha Cristoforetti will go into orbit. This is the fourth rotation of the ISS crew from the American side as part of the program for delivering astronauts to the station with the help of SpaceX.

Everything ingenious is simple Samsung Galaxy S23 gets a charging

Samsung has implemented an ingeniously simple solution in its latest flagship Galaxy S23. There is an item in the menu called Pause USB Power Delivery. When activated, the phone’s battery will not be charged, instead the device will be powered directly from the power supply.

This battery bypass system has an advantage in cases where the phone is used for a long time under load. For example, in games. If you power the device and simultaneously charge the battery, then you need high power, which is accompanied by significant heating of the phone.

The experiment showed that in the game, when the phone is powered in the usual way (through the battery), the consumption is 17 W, and if the battery bypass system is enabled, the consumption will be only 6 W – three times less. Naturally, the phone will heat up minimally. Moreover, this technology allows you to extend the life of the battery, as the number of full charge and discharge cycles is reduced.

It is important to note that the technology works with a battery charge of more than 20%. That is, if the mains power is interrupted unexpectedly, no data in the game or application will be lost, as the phone will automatically switch to battery power.
