SpaceX’s historic mission returns to Earth

SpaceX founder Elon Musk tweeted that Crew Dragon Resilience, which spent three days in orbit, landed in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Florida.

Recall that on September 16, SpaceX launched four space tourists into space. This is the company’s first mission exclusively with civilians on board, dubbed Inspiration4.

The team included billionaire entrepreneur Jared Isaacman, founder of payment processing company Shift4 Payments, Hayley Arceneaux, 29-year-old physician assistant, Christopher Sembroski, data engineer at Lockheed Martin, and Sian Proctor, a geologist and former NASA astronaut candidate.

Both the Crew Dragon and the Falcon 9 rocket have been in space before. They were approved for launch after the crew carefully examined each of the ship’s systems, as well as ground support data from the launch pad.

This mission has become historic for a number of reasons, in particular, this is the first civilian manned flight into space. The youngest American traveled to space, as well as the first man with a prosthesis. The first black female pilot flew the spacecraft, while SpaceX flew three Dragon ships in space at the same time.

Here’s what can happen when using an iPhone 13 with a cheap, non-genuine cable. The phone began to beep and get very hot

Published

on

Gizchina reports that one iPhone 13 user used a new smartphone with a very cheap 30 cents charging cable and nearly burned his phone.

The user confirms that when charging with this cable, the smartphone began to beep and became very hot. It’s good that the owner of the smartphone immediately drew attention to this. Otherwise, it could lead, at best, to a cable failure or to a smartphone fire. This often happens when using cheap charging adapters and cables.

Apple warns that it is dangerous to use non-MFi-rated, non-MFi-certified accessories with its products, with the blame resting on the user.

On e-commerce platforms, you can find a huge range of chargers with a Lightning connector starting at less than a dollar. However, there are many accessories among them without MFi certification. This certification ensures that Apple has approved the use of the cable or charger with its devices.

Usually, the iPhone warns users when using a faulty accessory, in which case it is better not to risk it so as not to lose an expensive device.
