Chinese Scientists Discover Water Reservoir on the Moon

Posted by in category: space travel

Due to its potential for in-situ resource utilization by future lunar exploration missions and other space missions, lunar surface water has attracted significant attention.

Now, a research group led by Prof. Sen Hu from the Institute of Geology and Geophysics (IGG) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) has found that impact glass beads in Chang’e-5 (CE5) lunar soils contain some water.

Detailed studies show that these glass beads are likely a new water reservoir on the Moon, recording the dynamic ingress and egress of solar wind-derived water and acting as a buffer for the lunar surface water cycle.

Marine Permaculture project selected as a milestone winner for Elon Musk’s XPRIZE carbon removal competition!

Posted by in categories: climatology, Elon Musk, sustainability

Year 2022 Permaculture once a sorta outcast of the science world is now seen as the forefront of carbon capture for climate change 😀 😉

Since late 2021, WSP has been supporting the Climate Foundation in an exciting project to develop a prototype design for Marine Permaculture Arrays.

What If EVE Online Becomes Our Future?

Posted by in categories: biological, economics, entertainment, military, space travel

Play EVE Online:

In this video, we explore the fascinating prospects of humanity becoming a proper interstellar civilization, up to Type III on the Kardashev scale. However, this transition process presents our species with a bunch of physical limitations, as well as societal and even biological implications. Many of them are quite unwanted or even ugly! We explore this vast topic by using the latest scientific models as well as the best science fiction worlds from books, TV shows, and even games. Speaking of which, to help us visualize this space-faring future with much-needed scale and fidelity, we turned to CCP Games — the creators of the massively multiplayer online game EVE Online. It is set in a rich sci-fi universe, where players can create their own character and explore a vast and complex virtual world built according to the well-thought set of consistent in-world rules The game is known for its intricate economy, politics, and warfare mechanics, where players can engage in a variety of activities, including mining resources, trading, building structures, and participating in battles. Quite frankly, the game feels like a real simulation of all those future endeavors humanity will face on the way to becoming a true interstellar species!

Does GPT-4 Really Understand What We’re Saying?

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

One question for David Krakauer, president of the Sante Fe Institute for complexity science where he explores the evolution of intelligence and stupidity on Earth.

Does GPT-4 really understand what we’re saying?

Yes and no, is the answer to that. In my new paper with computer scientist Melanie Mitchell, we surveyed AI researchers on the idea that large pretrained language models, like GPT-4, can understand language. When they say these models understand us, or that they don’t, it’s not clear that we’re agreeing on our concept of understanding. When Claude Shannon was inventing information theory, he made it very clear that the part of information he was interested in was communication, not meaning: You can have two messages that are equally informative, with one having loads of meaning and the other none.

The Periodic Table Has Been Sonified And Every Element Sounds Unique

Posted by in categories: chemistry, energy, space

The unique radiation emitted by heated or electrified elements has been converted into sound, enabling us to hear the distinctive chord each element produces. Although the idea has been tried before, advances in technology have now made it possible for a far more complete and subtle sonification of the periodic table.

When elements are energized electrons can jump to higher energy levels. Eventually, they return to their ground state, releasing a photon in the process. The wavelength of the photon depends on the size of the energy gap between the excited state and the ground state – more energy produces higher frequency/shorter wavelength light.
