Turkmenistan wants to close the “Gates of Hell”

Published

on

Turkmenistan has announced plans to close the Gates of Hell once and for all. This is a gas crater in Turkmenistan called Darvaza. Locals and travelers call it the “Door to the Underworld” or the “Gates of Hell”.

The “Gates of Hell” appeared in 1971 when the crater was set on fire to prevent the spread of methane gas. Since then, no one has been able to put out the fire. The “Gates of Hell” are located about 260 kilometers from the capital of Turkmenistan. This crater attracts visitors from all over Asia and even from all over the world. It is considered one of the largest natural attractions in the country.

Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov says the Gates of Hell are burning large amounts of gas. It can be used for the prosperity of the country and its people. The goal is to stop this non-stop burning hole and use natural gas reserves for the good of the country.

In addition, the President of Turkmenistan states that the reason for closing the burning pit is also related to environmental and health issues. Clearly, gas emissions from this natural burning pit are of particular concern at a time when countries are trying to cut gas emissions and save the atmosphere. It is worth noting that the plans were discussed back in 2010.

The “gates of hell” serve as a natural habitat for extremophilic bacteria, which can withstand temperatures up to 400 degrees Celsius. According to George Curunis, a researcher at the Royal Canadian Geographical Society, these bacteria are not even in the DNA database. Some of them may consume methane. As a result, it is a very unusual and mysterious life form that lives in a place inhospitable to humans and ordinary living beings.

George Kurunis stated that putting out the fire could be a difficult task. It is not enough to just pour a pile of sand into the hole: “Even if you put out the fire by filling the hole, there is a good chance that the fire will find its way to the surface.”

The days of Ethereum mining are numbered. Vitalik Butering told when the network will switch to the Proof-of-Stake algorithm

The days of Ethereum mining are numbered Vitalik Butering told

The transition of Ethereum to the Proof-of-Stake algorithm, instead of the current Proof-of-Work supported by miners, has been talked about for a long time, but so far this has not happened. However, Proof-of-Stake is on the way. This was stated by Vitalik Buterin himself.

During the Shanghai summit, Buterin said that the transition of the Ethereum network to the Proof-of-Stake algorithm will take place in August. Previously, it was planned for the second quarter of this year (and before that it was postponed many times), but now a new date has been announced. In case of unforeseen circumstances, the update will be postponed for a month or two, but it is definitely not in the interests of the network to delay further implementation of Proof-of-Stake.

Thus, there is not much time left for cryptocurrency miners to mine ETH. There is an opinion that after the transition to the Proof-of-Stake algorithm, the cost of Ethereum may fall slightly, but then it will definitely increase. In the meantime, for 1 ETH they give less than $2,000.

I have an Android Galaxy Z Fold3 Bill Gates reveals

The former head of Microsoft does not use the company’s smartphones. Answering a question about his mobile device on the Reddit forum, Bill Gates told what kind of smartphone he uses.

I have an Android Galaxy Z Fold3 Bill Gates reveals

I have an Android Galaxy Z Fold3. I try different ones. With this screen, I can get by with a great laptop and phone and don’t need anything else.

Third-party sources, of course, emphasize that Gates could use the Microsoft Surface Duo 2, but, like the first generation, this device failed in sales and is inferior to Samsung’s foldable flagship on literally all fronts.

As for other smartphones or the laptop he chose, Gates, unfortunately, did not disclose the details.

Smart watches Google Pixel Watch can surprise you with the amount of memory: there will be more flash memory than in some smartphones

Smart watches Google Pixel Watch can surprise you with the

Google announced the smart watch ten days ago, but kept silent about the technical characteristics of the novelty. Therefore, details about the device have to be collected bit by bit. A previous leak said the watch would get Samsung’s rather old Exynos 9110 SoC, but the new data is encouraging: the Pixel Watch may have a fresher SoC.

Smart watches Google Pixel Watch can surprise you with the amount of memory: there will be more flash memory than in some smartphones

This scheme is not new, it has already been tested in a number of other wearable devices: a low-power SoC ensures that the device works for a long time with basic capabilities, and when all functions are supposed to be used to the maximum, a more powerful (and obviously more modern) hardware system is involved.

But even this is not interesting: Pixel Watch is credited with a lot of flash memory – as much as 32 GB. Such a volume for applications is clearly redundant, so it is suggested that Google will focus on the ability to download and store a large amount of music right on the watch. Which is good for sports. However, it will be possible to store podcasts right in the watch, for example. The amount of RAM will be “slightly more than the Galaxy Watch 4”. Samsung smartwatches have 1.5 GB of RAM, so it’s logical to assume 2 GB of RAM in Pixel Watch.

Finally, the Pixel Watch is said to be sensor-similar to the Fitbit Charge 5. This means that Google’s new product will provide the same vitals tracking capabilities. At a minimum, you can count on the monitoring of heart rate and SpO2, as a maximum – on the possibility of recording an ECG.

This concludes the new batch of details about the Google Pixel Watch. Recall that the novelty will go on sale in the fall.
