A geomagnetic field is generated in Earth's interior and extends into outer space to protect Earth from cosmic radiation and the charged particles of solar wind. The magnetic field is generated by the convection of charged molten iron fluids in Earth's outer core.
South Korea needs to join the “inner club of global space powerhouses” by developing unmatched space technology and becoming an attractive partner within the club, according to the first vice minister of the Ministry of Science and ICT. “There are areas where we need to stand on our own in terms of technology. But we can’t do everything by ourselves. For instance, we can’t do space exploration alone,” said First Vice Minister Oh Tae-seog in a recent interview
"The key issue is not 'human-competitive' intelligence (as the open letter puts it); it’s what happens after AI gets to smarter-than-human intelligence," Eliezer Yudkowsky wrote.
Intel's next-generation LGA 7529 socket which will be used by future Xeon CPUs with up to 512 cores has been pictured in insane detail. Intel LGA 7529 Socket With Support For Up To 512 Core Xeon CPUs Pictured On Engineering Motherboard Although we have already seen the Intel LGA 7529 socket in close-up shots, the […]
The M3 and A17 Bionic are expected to be Apple’s first 3nm chips, granting them incredible performance and efficiency-related properties. In both single-core and multi-core tests, the upcoming SoC that will seemingly power portable Macs is a force to be reckoned with, beating the M2 Pro and M2 Max in various categories. M3 apparently slower than […]
A loving tribute to the man behind Casablanca Records in the ’70s, "Spinning Gold" idealizes its subject and leaves out any real drama.
Over the past decade, vinyl records have made a major comeback. People purchased US$1.2 billion of records in 2022, a 20-percent jump from the previous year. Not only did sales rise, but they also surpassed CD sales for the first time since 1988, according to a new report from the
We asked some of the Google tracking data providers for data on the latest Google algorithm update.
Coronal Hole '30 Times Earth's Size' Hurls Solar Plasma Towards Earth NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory released a photo showing a massive coronal hole forming in the sun's atmosphere, ejecting a stream of fast-moving solar winds toward Earth. "The current coronal hole, the big one right now, is about 300,000 to 400,000 kilometers across," Alex Young, the associate director for science at NASA Goddard's Heliophysics Science Division, told Bussiness Insider. He said, "that's about...
Minnesota Timberwolves center Rudy Gobert and head coach Chris Finch were each fined for criticizing the officiating after their 107-100 loss to the Phoenix
Light is composed of electric and magnetic fields that oscillate perpendicular to each other. When these oscillations are restricted, say, along a plane, it results in polarized light. Polarized light is of great importance in optical communications, and can similarly revolutionize how information is stored.
A newly discovered asteroid will safely whiz by Earth this weekend, as the 115-foot space rock approaches us at a staggering 17,000 mph.
