The Voyager 1 spacecraft suddenly began sending strange data to Earth

The Voyager 1 spacecraft sends strange signals to Earth. NASA has published a message stating that the telemetry data of the apparatus does not reflect what is happening with the ship.

The Voyager 1 spacecraft suddenly began sending strange data to Earth

For now, Voyager 1 is operating normally, receiving and executing commands from Earth, and collecting and returning scientific data. But readings from the Probe’s Articulation and Attitude Control System (AACS) don’t reflect what’s actually happening on board.

The AACS module controls the attitude of the 45-year-old spacecraft. Among other tasks, it keeps Voyager 1’s high-gain antenna pointed exactly at Earth, allowing it to send data back home. All signs point to AACS still working, but the telemetry it returns is invalid. For example, the data may appear to be randomly generated or not reflect any possible state that the AACS may be in.

The issue did not trigger any of the onboard fail-safe systems that are designed to put the spacecraft into “safe mode” — a state in which only essential operations are performed, giving engineers time to diagnose the problem. Voyager 1’s signal has also not weakened, indicating that the high-gain antenna remains in the prescribed orientation relative to the Earth.

NASA writes that scientists will closely monitor data from Voyager 1 until the nature of the problem becomes clearer.

Voyager 1 is currently 23.3 billion kilometers from Earth, and it takes 20 hours and 33 minutes for the signal to travel that distance. Now the device is the most distant object from the Earth, produced by mankind.

Solar powered bitcoin farm launched in the US

Aspen Creek Digital Corporation (“ACDC”) has announced the launch of its first bitcoin mining facility. We are talking about a high-performance computing center with a capacity of 6 MW, equipped with a solar farm with a capacity of 10 MW.

The company’s first hosting client was Galaxy Digital.

“Recent market volatility has demonstrated the importance of our core strategy: power control as a major contributor to bitcoin mining,” said ACDC CEO Alexandra DaCosta.

ACDC uses S19 generation miners for mining in a data center in Colorado. Adjacent to the facility is a 75,000 square foot R&D and execution center.

The second ACDC facility will be a 30 MW data center capable of accommodating 10,000 ASIC miners. This data center will be combined with an 87 MW solar power plant, which will be commissioned this summer.

The third project that ACDC is working on is a 150 MW data center that will work in conjunction with a 200 MW solar farm.

Official Huawei will unveil its second car on July 4th

Previously, Huawei announced that the official premiere of the nova 10 series smartphones would take place on July 4, and now it has become known that the company will also introduce its second car, the Aito M7, on the same day. With one shot, Huawei will kill two birds with one stone, however, they say that this day there will be much more new products.

Aito M7 is a hybrid crossover. In terms of dimensions, it will be noticeably larger than Huawei’s first car, the Aito M5 hybrid crossover. The company has released several new teasers that suggest the Aito M7 will be positioned as a large family travel car.

The capacity of the traction battery will be approximately 40 kWh – on pure electricity, the crossover will be able to travel about 150 km, and the average fuel consumption will be about 7 liters per 100 km. There will be no lack of power: a 177 hp electric motor mounted on the front axle will be combined with a 272 hp engine. on the rear axle.

The power consumption of the Radeon RX 7000 series graphics cards will not be as huge as that of the GeForce RTX 40

The power consumption of the Radeon RX 7000 series graphics

Rumors are actively attributing huge power consumption up to 600 W and even higher to GeForce RTX 40 video cards. Radeon RX 7000 cards will also consume more than the current generation.

The power consumption of the Radeon RX 7000 series graphics cards will not be as huge as that of the GeForce RTX 40

AMD Senior Vice President Sam Naffziger revealed some details about the RDNA 3 architecture and products based on it. He also touched upon the topic of energy consumption.

The demand for gaming and computing performance is increasing, while at the same time the development of technical processes is slowing down quite sharply. Thus, the power level will only increase. We now have a multi-year roadmap with very significant energy efficiency improvements to offset this curve, but the trend is there.

Performance is critical, but even if our designs are more energy efficient, that doesn’t mean we won’t raise power levels if competitors are doing the same. They’ll just have to raise them much higher than us.

Thus, the Radeon RX 7000 line, despite the previously stated 50 percent advantage (over the RX 6000) in power efficiency, will stand out for its high power consumption simply because of the huge performance boost. At the same time, AMD is confident that Nvidia will have to increase power consumption even higher.

For now, the RX 6000 line is more power efficient than the GeForce RTX 30, although the difference isn’t huge. Previously, there were rumors that the top-end RX 7900 XT will consume 450 watts versus 600 watts in the case of the RTX 4090, but so far these are just rumors.
