A climate scientist from Tohoku University (Japan) Kunio Kaiho called the approximate date of the next mass extinction. His work has been published in the journal Biogeosciences.

We'll still live.  Climatologist called the approximate date of the sixth mass extinction

Over the past 540 million years, the Earth has experienced five mass extinctions, often accompanied by climate change. Kaiho assessed the stability of the average temperature of the Earth’s surface and the biodiversity of the planet, as a result, a pattern was discovered: the greater the change in temperature, the greater the extent of extinction. “In terms of global cooling, the largest mass extinctions occurred when temperatures dropped by about 7°C. If we are talking about warming, then mass extinctions occurred when the temperature rose by 9 ° C‘ Kaiho said.

By the end of the century, the temperature on Earth is expected to rise by an average of 4.4°C. “Global warming of 9°C will not occur until at least 2500 under the worst-case scenario‘, predicts Kaiho.

According to the scientist, today the climate is changing much faster for anthropogenic reasons. This could lead to the fact that the sixth mass extinction will take away with it many more species than before.

Perhaps more species will become extinct this time on Earth, not because the scale of warming is so great, but because the changes have happened so quickly that many species have not been able to adapt.“, the scientist explained.

SpaceX Falcon Heavy rockets approved to launch top secret US satellites

The US Space Force has approved the use of SpaceX Falcon Heavy rockets equipped with reusable boosters to launch top-secret reconnaissance satellites. This was reported by Bloomberg.

SpaceX Falcon Heavy rockets approved to launch top-secret US satellites

In general, SpaceX has previously launched American spy satellites into orbit using the Falcon 9 rocket, but its capabilities are not enough to launch heavy satellites into orbit. Approval was received in June, but it became known about it only now. The first launch of the Falcon Heavy is expected between October and December – SpaceX will deliver a National Reconnaissance Agency satellite into orbit.

As noted, the use of Falcon Heavy not only brings SpaceX closer to the state customer (Bloomberg focuses on strengthening relations between Elon Musk and the Pentagon), but also saves federal budget funds through the use of reusable boosters. The US Space Force has already calculated that the use of reusable Falcon 9 rockets has saved more than $64 million on GPS satellite launch missions.

Photo spies filmed a camouflaged SUV on the roads of China. According to the source, these photos show a promising electric car of the new Interstellar brand, behind which stands the industry leader, BYD. It will be a very expensive car with outstanding off-road potential.

There are not as many details about the project as we would like, but it is reported that the car will receive motor-wheels and a fully controlled chassis (4WS) – both the front and rear wheels will turn. The cross-country ability will be no worse than that of some Cybertruck, high power and very good dynamics are also promised. It is expected that the car will receive the Huawei platform, on the basis of which the functions of the autonomous driving system will work (two lidars are attributed at once).

The premiere of the new Interstellar brand may take place as early as August, and the first car (the one in the photo, but already in commercial form) in the fourth quarter of this year. Sales of new items should start in the first half of 2023. The price of an SUV is also called – from 120 to almost 240 thousand dollars.
