Hungriest of black holes among the most massive in the universe

Posted by in category: cosmology

O.,o O.O

We now know just how massive the fastest-growing black hole in the Universe actually is, as well as how much it eats, thanks to new research led by The Australian National University (ANU).

It is 34 billion times the of our sun and gorges on nearly the equivalent of one sun every day, according to Dr. Christopher Onken and his colleagues.

SpaceX’s reusable Falcon rockets have Europe thinking two steps ahead

Posted by in category: space travel

In a rare instance of some connection to reality, a European Union commissioner overseeing the space industry has acknowledged the elephant in the room, admitting that SpaceX has changed the game for commercial rockets and that the upcoming Ariane 6 rocket may already be outdated.

While slight, European Commissioner Thierry Breton expressed some level of urgency, stating that “SpaceX has redefined the standards for launchers.” “Ariane 6 is a necessary step, but not the ultimate aim: we must start thinking now about Ariane 7.” Ariane 6 is a new European Space Agency (ESA) rocket designed to replace the existing Ariane 5 workhorse and do some while cutting costs. However, the vehicle’s design and the strategy behind it were fixed in place before SpaceX began to routinely demonstrate Falcon 9 reusability, effectively creating a rocket optimized for a market that ceased to exist soon after.

First Operational CMV-22B Osprey delivered to the U.S. Navy

Posted by in category: military

The U.S. Navy’s first CMV-22B Osprey for operational use arrived at Naval Air Station North Island, June 22. The tilt-rotor aircraft configured for Carrier Onboard Delivery (COD) missions is replacing the C-2A Greyhound.
The aircraft is assigned to the “Titans” of Fleet Logistics
Multi-Mission Squadron VRM 30, the Navy’s first CMV-22B squadron. VRM-30
was established in 2018 to begin the U…S Navy’s transition from the
C-2A Greyhound to the CMV-22B Osprey.

The CMV-22B is designed to carry up to 6,000 pounds of cargo and/or
personnel and operate up to a range of 1,150 nautical miles. One of the
reasons the Navy selected the V-22 airframe to serve in the COD role is
because of its ability to carry the F135 engine power module used by the
F-35C Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter.
