Quite the inspirational week this one with the complete set of JWST First Images. Loads of Starship and Starbase news. Last week I mentioned that it was fire time for Starbase, and…WOW… I was not wrong there. SpaceX’s Starship Booster 7 has gone for repair after explosion. Falcon 9 launches for both Starlink and finally CRS-25. We also had the very first launch of Vega C. Rocket Lab firing off another Electron, and more. So enough of this intro. Let’s crack on with it!

Nuclear fusion gets closer to reality with this new reactor

Posted by in categories: nuclear energy, space travel, sustainability

This article is an installment of The Future Explored, a weekly guide to world-changing technology. You can get stories like this one straight to your inbox every Thursday morning by subscribing here.

If nuclear fusion was a viable energy source, everything could be electrified. Electricity would be so cheap that projects that seem impossible now could be within our grasp, like commercial space flights, desalinating sea water, or direct air carbon capture.

Stephen Hawking’s Final Research Predicts The End Of The Universe And Existence Parallel Universes

Posted by in categories: cosmology, space travel

Two weeks before his death, famed scientist Stephen Hawking published a research article predicting parallel universes and along with the end of our own.

Hawking and co-author Thomas Hertog published their results in “A Smooth Exit from Eternal Inflation,” outlining how scientists may also be able to discover other universes using spaceships. According to Hertog, Hawking completed the work on his deathbed, leaving a legacy worthy of the Nobel Prize.

U.S. Government’s Office of Science and Technology Issues Call for Cislunar Strategies

Posted by in categories: government, policy, science, space travel, sustainability

White House asks the public for ideas on what to do when we return to the Moon and cislunar space.

The U.S. has plans to return to the moon by the middle of this decade through NASA’s Artemis Program. But going back to the lunar surface and cislunar space isn’t just about putting boots on the ground. That’s why the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy on behalf of the Cislunar Science and Technology Subcommittee of the National Science and Technology Council has issued a request for ideas (RFI) with a deadline of Wednesday, July 20, 2022, for interested parties to make submissions.

The U.S. government has defined cislunar space as the entire region beyond Earth’s geostationary orbit subject to the gravity of both our planet and the Moon. The RFI covers both orbiting and lunar surface activities.

Watch NASA’s SpaceX CRS-25 Launch to the International Space Station

Posted by in categories: climatology, space travel

SpaceX’s CRS-25 mission is set to lift off atop a Falcon 9 rocket from launchpad 39-A at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. Launch is targeted for 8:44 p.m. EDT (00:44 UTC), Friday, July 14. The Dragon spacecraft will deliver new science investigations, supplies, and equipment for the international crew, including an image spectrometer to be mounted on the exterior of the station to better understand how dust plumes affect our climate, and a study of immune aging and potential for reversing those effects. It also will carry an investigation from a team of students at Stanford University that will test the process of creating biopolymer soil composite, a concrete alternative, in microgravity.…highlights.

Humanity getting lost in the MATRIOSHKA Brain🤖

Posted by in categories: computing, finance, space travel

A Matrioshka Brain is a supermassive structure in space consisting of processors and connected to each other into a massive computer around a sun harnessing its energy completely. So far we haven’t built one as we don’t have the technology for it but when we do the question will be if people will be lost in the vast computing power of the Matrishka brain.
