The Orion spacecraft took impressive photographs of the moon during its closest approach. Recall that the ship launched to the moon as part of the NASA Artemis I mission flew closest to the satellite of our tablet on Monday, November 21, but the photos were published at the end of the week.

The ship flew just 130 km above the lunar surface and took a series of pictures. These black and white images were taken by the onboard optical navigation camera of the Orion spacecraft on day 6 of the mission. The spacecraft is due to splash down in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of California on December 11th.

Orion took a series of photographs of the Earth and Moon in different phases and at different distances to test the performance of its optical navigation camera under various lighting conditions. This should make it easier to orient the spacecraft during future crewed missions, according to NASA’s description.

Artemis 1 is the first mission designed to test the readiness of the Orion spacecraft and NASA’s giant Space Launch System (SLS) rocket for future Artemis program missions.

If all goes well, the rocket and ship could take astronauts to the moon as early as 2024 — for the first time since 1972 — during the Artemis 2 mission. About a year or two after that, the Artemis 3 mission is scheduled to land astronauts near the south pole of the moon.

One of the largest retail chains in India Reliance Retail

Major Indian retailer Reliance Retail has implemented support for digital rupee payments in one of its Freshpik stores and plans to expand this experience to all formats of the network.

One of the largest retail chains in India, Reliance Retail, began accepting digital rupees as part of a pilot project.

V Subramaniam, chief executive of Reliance Retail, noted that the adoption of a central bank digital currency (CBDC) is in line with the firm’s vision of providing “choice” to Indian consumers. The executive also emphasized that this initiative gives the firm the opportunity to offer an alternative payment method in its stores.

To make a purchase, customers only need to scan a QR code.

“Indians will get another efficient and secure alternative payment method” — said the top manager.

The deployment of CBDC was made possible through collaboration with ICICI Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank and Innovative Technologies.

Plans for the country’s CBDC were laid out by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on October 7, 2022. The country’s central bank has identified various factors, including the potential positive and negative impact of the digital rupee on the country. According to the RBI, one of the motivations for creating a CBDC is to reduce the operating costs of managing cash.

It seems that Samsung took into account the problems with the Galaxy S22 line of smartphones and did not repeat them in new devices when it comes to cooling systems.

Well-known insider Ice Universe has published a visual comparison of the approximate sizes of cooling systems in each flagship of the past generation and the new one.

As you can see, all systems have become noticeably larger, and in the younger model, instead of a graphite film, an evaporation chamber has appeared.

Whether this is enough for the new products not to overheat and not throttling so much, tests will show, but the performance, as we can already see, is really good. Recall that today we also saw a comparison of the Galaxy S22 Ultra and S23 Ultra cameras.

Ice Universe was the first to accurately talk about the new trend for smartphones with waterfall screens, about the notch in the iPhone X, about the new design of the iPhone 14 and about Samsung’s 200-megapixel image sensor.
