The launch will take place on September 3, the window will open at 2:17 pm EDT [21:17 по московскому времени]”, – said Sarafin.

It was previously planned that a new attempt would be made on September 2, but due to the weather forecast, it was decided to adjust the date, Sarafin explained. SLS program manager John Honeycutt added that the hydrogen leak detected on Monday was not related to the operation of one of the engines, as engineers feared. “We didn’t find any specific issues with the third engine.“, he noted. The launch of the Artemis 1 mission was canceled Monday morning EST due to technical problems.

Since April 2021, NASA engineers have been assembling the rocket that will be launched as part of the Artemis 1 lunar mission. On board the Orion spacecraft, as part of the test flight, there will be three dummies, which are also used to measure the level of radiation during the flight. In the spring of 2019, NASA announced the draft Artemis program, which will consist of three phases. The first of these (Artemis 1) provides for an unmanned flight of Orion around the Moon and its return to Earth. The second stage (Artemis 2) is a flight around the Earth’s natural satellite with a crew on board. In the third stage of the mission (Artemis 3), NASA expected to land astronauts on the Moon in 2024, and then send them to Mars approximately in the mid-2030s.

In the United States created a refrigerator for third world

Engineers have created a cooling device that does not require electricity to operate. An article about this was published in Cell Reports Physical Science.

In the United States created a refrigerator for third world countries that does not require food

The device was invented by scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Outwardly, it looks like a thick pizza box wrapped in foil. The “box” is made of three layers of material. At the bottom is a reflective foil, in the middle is a porous material based on hydrogel with a large proportion of water, on top is airgel, a very light material, 99% air. When heated, water evaporates from the hydrogel, cooling it, and enters the airgel, where it is additionally cooled by infrared radiation. In addition, the airgel cap serves as an insulator and reflects light as well as the bottom layer.

The device must be placed above what needs to be cooled. It can reduce the temperature of an object by 10 degrees compared to the environment. According to the developers, the system is able to increase the shelf life of food products by 40% in conditions of high humidity, or three times if it is hot and dry outside. First of all, such a refrigerator is in demand in hot third world countries, where there are problems with electricity.

There are no external differences between them – only the inscriptions in the camera blocks are different: 108 MP for Xiaomi 12T and 200 MP for Xiaomi 12T Pro. Both models are expected to have 6.67-inch AMOLED screens with a resolution of 2712 x 1220 pixels, and screen protection will be provided by tempered glass Gorilla Glass 5. Xiaomi 12T Pro will be based on Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 SoC, Xiaomi 12T hardware platform – MediaTek Dimensity 8100. The devices are also credited with 5000 mAh batteries with support for 120 W fast charging.

Physicists set a record by cooling matter to the lowest temperature in history. An article about this was published in Physical Review Research.

Scientists set a record by cooling matter to 220 microkelvins

The behavior of matter at temperatures close to absolute zero is very different from what people are used to. Some substances pass into a superconducting or superfluid state, and at extremely low temperatures, the quantum properties of elementary particles appear, which can be used for calculations.

Physicists at the University of Basel have cooled a tiny copper circuit on a silicon chip to 220 microkelvins, the lowest temperature ever achieved in such experiments. This was achieved using a cryostat and a magnetic field: the spins of the copper atoms in the chip were aligned, due to which they cooled more strongly.

In the future, scientists hope to cool quantum processors and conventional semiconductor electronic components using this technology.
