“We didn’t foresee this.” Mars rover Perseverance damaged

Published

The Perseverance rover landed on the Red Planet in February 2021. It carries a weather station called the Mars Environmental Dynamics Analyzer (MEDA). This instrument includes two wind sensors that measure speed and direction, as well as several other sensors that read weather indicators such as humidity, radiation, and air temperature.

A rock kicked up by strong gusts of wind on the Red Planet recently damaged one of its wind sensors, but MEDA can still track the wind in the Jezero crater landing area, albeit with reduced sensitivity, MEDA Principal Investigator José Antonio Rodriguez Manfredi told Space.

Currently, the sensor’s capabilities are limited, but it still provides speed and heading values. The entire team is now reconfiguring the search procedure to get more accurate readings from an undamaged sensor.

The two wind sensors are surrounded by six separate sensors that should give accurate readings from any direction. Each of the two main wind sensors is attached to an arm that can deploy to move the sensors away from the rover as it moves. .

Like all instruments on Perseverance, the wind sensor has been designed with protection systems. But, of course, everything has a limit. A much stronger gust of wind than expected lifted a large stone that caused damage.

We didn’t foresee this. Neither the forecasts, nor the experience we had gained during previous missions, foresaw such strong winds, nor such a large amount of loose material of this kind.

Perseverance landed on Mars on February 18, 2021 and, along with the Ingenuity helicopter, is exploring an ancient river delta that may have been rich in microbes billions of years ago.

Lenovos first AI laptop will be very quiet but not

Lenovo has published a teaser dedicated to its first AI laptop – Xiaoxin Pro AI Ultrabook 2024. One of the main features of the device will be low noise level.

The image shows the cooling system of the Xiaoxin Pro AI Ultrabook 2024. Everything here is pretty standard for a model that does not have a dGPU: two heat pipes and two fans. The creators say that the minimum noise level of the system will be only 17 dBA, and this is really low. But there is a nuance: we are talking about noise at the minimum fan speed in energy saving mode. And although Lenovo says that the laptop’s performance in this mode will be high, it will still be far from what the Core Ultra processor can show in maximum performance mode.

The official premiere of the new product, apparently, will take place this week – immediately after Intel introduces the CPU Core Ultra. Lenovo Xiaoxin Pro AI Ultrabook 2024 will receive 32 GB of RAM, a 1 TB SSD, an 84 Wh battery (the predecessor has 75 Wh) and support for 100-watt charging.

The iPhone 16 and Galaxy S24 lines will not receive

Samsung smartphones from the Galaxy S24 line and devices from the iPhone 16 line will likely retain the same RAM options that current models currently have.

The iPhone 16 and Galaxy S24 lines will not receive an increase in RAM compared to their predecessors, despite the hype around AI

Analysts at Mizuho Securities, cited by insider Revegnus, say that the growing demand for AI should, in theory, contribute to the growth of RAM in smartphones. We previously reported that thanks to the emphasis on AI, manufacturers may begin to actively equip their smartphones with 16-24 GB of RAM.

However, a significant increase in memory prices, as well as the still missing scenarios for local AI that will run directly on smartphones, will lead to the fact that next year manufacturers will not actively increase the amount of memory. In particular, Samsung and Apple can leave everything as it is now.

This means that the iPhone 16 and 16 Plus will each receive 6 GB of RAM, and the iPhone 16 Pro and 16 Pro Max will each receive 8 GB. Samsung’s new generation flagships will have 8 or 12 GB of RAM.

It is likely that other manufacturers will not rush to increase volumes, and this, in turn, may slow down the development of local AI on smartphones.

Button island Exynos 1280 AMOLED screen 120 Hz 50 MP

Samsung today introduced not only the Galaxy A15, but also the Galaxy A25. This model is built on the proprietary SoC Exynos 1280, and its design feature is the so-called “button island”. This is the elevation of the side frame in the area of ​​the power and volume keys.

Galaxy A25 received an AMOLED screen with a diagonal of 6.5 inches, Full HD+ resolution, frame rate of 120 Hz and maximum brightness of 1000 cd/sq.m. Interestingly, unlike the younger model, there are versions with both 8 GB and 6 GB of RAM (the Galaxy A15 has strictly 8 GB), the flash memory capacity is only 128 GB.
