The first impact of mankind on an asteroid, as we know, was successful. Now there are new details about exactly how much.

The first impact of mankind on an asteroid knocked out up to 10,000 tons of rock from the last

The DART spacecraft, when hitting the asteroid Dimorph, knocked out at least 1000 tons of rock from the latter. Calculations show that the maximum value could be 10,000 tons. Recall that the impact allowed to reduce the orbit of Dimorph around the larger Didyma by 32 minutes, or about 5%.

The large amount of material that knocked out the probe on impact allowed scientists to understand the structure of the asteroid. Dimorph is not a single piece of stone, but rather a huge lump of boulders and small stones held together by gravity. This is a fairly common type of object.

It is because of the structure of the asteroid that the impact of the probe ultimately led to such a significant change in orbit. The fact is that if the Dimorph was a solid piece of stone, during a collision, the probe would practically not knock out fragments from it, because of which the Dimorph would acquire the same momentum that the probe had. That is, the coefficient, which is called beta, would be equal to 1. However, the huge mass of matter that was ejected outside the asteroid eventually led to the beta being 3.6, that is, the momentum received by the asteroid from the ejection of matter was greater than directly from the DART impact.

Of course, despite the very useful data obtained as part of the DART mission, it is meaningless to say that now humanity can confidently repel any space threat in this way. Needless to say, the Dimorph is only about 160 meters in diameter, and is actually a large pile of rubble. If we are talking about a piece of stone an order of magnitude or two larger, the situation will be completely different.

Windows 11 build released with 2 GB of RAM and 8 GB of storage space. It was not created by Microsoft

Windows 11 build released with 2 GB of RAM and

Third-party company NTDEV has unveiled a modification of Windows 11 called Tiny11. This is a light version of Windows 11 Pro 22H2, from which everything superfluous was removed, including the Microsoft Edge browser. At the same time, it left a calculator, notepad, Paint, terminal, Microsoft Store and features for people with disabilities.

The main feature of the assembly is reduced system requirements. If the regular Windows 11 Pro 22H2 requires 4 GB of RAM and at least 24 GB of disk space (official requirements say 64 GB), then the lite version is 2 GB and 8 GB, respectively. That is, it will work fine even on relatively weak PCs and laptops.

At the same time, the developers of the modification stated that this is not a hacked version, for activation you need to buy a license key from Microsoft or official partners. You can download the assembly here.

Microsoft has not yet responded to such experiments, so it is unclear whether they will prohibit such modifications.

Earlier it was reported that the company began to “spam” ads for Windows 11, displaying it in full screen, and it is difficult to refuse the installation.

Camera comparison Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra vs Galaxy S22 Ultra

The authors of the GSM Arena resource compared the photo capabilities of the latest Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra with its predecessor. Unlike the previous comparison, this time we have shots in high enough quality that allow you to compare the details. However, unfortunately, there are not many photos.

To begin with, it is worth noting that in low or poor lighting, the new model really shows itself better. True, this is partly due to the sharpening of images, which not everyone likes.

As for the comparison in good lighting, there is no particular difference, except that the pictures on the new smartphone are less contrasting and saturated in colors.

If we compare photos in 200 and 50 megapixel modes, we can note not only higher detail in the first case, but also increased contrast.

Sony in their repertoire In the first photo the flagship

Sony may present its next-generation flagship smartphone at the end of this month at the MWC 2023 event, but today the first photo of the Xperia 1 V has hit the Web.

Sony in their repertoire.  In the first photo, the flagship smartphone Xperia 1 V is very similar to the previous several generations

As you can see, Sony will continue to use the same design that they switched to with the Xperia 1 II in 2020. Compared to the current model, there are some changes in the design of the camera, but they are minor. It also seems that the module itself has become larger, although compared to some modern devices, it is still very tiny.

You can also see that the lower camera, as in the current generation, will be a periscope module. According to the leaks, the Xperia 1 V will receive a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, which is logical. Given the parameters of past models of the line, we can also expect a large amount of memory and not the largest screen by modern standards.
