The next attempt to launch the Space Launch System (SLS) super-heavy launch vehicle with the Orion spacecraft to the Moon is postponed due to Hurricane Ian and can be made no earlier than November 12. This was reported by NASA.

The launch of the super-heavy American SLS rocket with the Orion spacecraft to the Moon is postponed until November

NASA decided to focus on preparations for the launch of the mission, taking advantage of the launch window, which opens on November 12 and closes on November 27. In the coming days, the management will assess the scope of work to be completed in the vertical assembly building [Vertical Assembly Building, VAB]and assign the exact date of the next launch attempt”, — noted in the text of the American space department.

On September 30, specialists at the John F. Kennedy Space Center in Florida conducted an initial inspection and found no damage that the hurricane could have caused to the equipment. It is noted that the decision to focus on the November launch window “will allow organizing additional verification activities that need to be carried out before [ракета] will return to the launch pad“.

An attempt to launch a rocket on September 27 was canceled due to weather conditions: Tropical Storm Ian was approaching Florida, from where the launch was to be made. Attempts to launch Orion on August 29 and September 3 were delayed after the discovery of a hydrogen leak while fueling the rocket.

The Artemis program project consists 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.

Tecno today introduced an unusual smartphone Phantom X2 Pro. He was the first in the world to receive a retractable portrait lens, and the camera module looks very unusual. Now, reviews and details have appeared on the Web.

A unique camera, autofocus on all modules, but also a lot of minuses.  Tecno Phantom X2 Pro Reviews Appeared

Since the camera is the main feature of the device, it is worth clarifying that the main feature here is the 50-megapixel ISOCELL GNV sensor, which was used, for example, in the Vivo X80. This is a very large 1/1.3″ optical format sensor using an RGBW pixel arrangement. The portrait camera is based on a 50-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL JN1 sensor in 1/2.76-inch optical format, while the wide-angle camera received a rare Samsung S5K3L6 in 1/3-inch optical format. None of the cameras have optical stabilization, but all have autofocus.

According to the GSM Arena review, in general, the smartphone’s cameras are quite good.

At the same time, the Phantom X2 Pro still falls short of many flagships from more famous companies. The novelty does not have water protection, the screen is far from the brightest and does not support HDR video, charging is not the fastest and there are no stereo speakers.

At the same time, the price of the novelty is far from low. So far, it is only known that in Saudi Arabia they are asking for about $ 930 for the device.

New research shows laser exposure to the brain improves memory

Researchers who are developing new non-invasive laser therapies to improve brain function have confirmed that people’s short-term memory can be improved using a laser. It stimulates the right prefrontal area in the brain. This is called transcranial photobiomodulation (tPBM).

New research shows laser exposure to the brain improves memory

The first studies were conducted on mice, and now scientists from the University of Birmingham and Beijing Normal University of China have conducted similar tests on humans. They were attended by 90 men and women aged 18 to 25 years. They were asked to memorize a series of items that were shown on a screen.

The experiments used a laser with a wavelength of 1064 nanometers. After 12 minutes of stimulation, short-term memory improved up to 10%.

So far, scientists do not know exactly why this effect works and how long it lasts. Therefore, more research is expected. However, in the future, it is possible that tPBM technology will become a solution for non-invasive and non-pharmacological treatment of ADHD (hyperactivity disorder) or other attention deficit disorders.

Experiments of this kind are being conducted not only with lasers, but also with electrical and ultrasonic brain stimulation. However, none of the technologies has reached the commercial level so far.
