Elon Musk Just Gave The Most Revealing Look Yet at The Rocket That’ll Fly to The Moon And Mars

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, space travel

Elon Musk has provided several new, rare, and telling glimpses into how his rocket company, SpaceX, is building a spacecraft to reach Mars.

On September 17, Musk announced that SpaceX would fly Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa around the moon on the company’s Big Falcon Rocket or BFR. During that event, Musk showed off new renderings of the launch system, along with a few photos of the work going on inside SpaceX’s spaceship-building tent at the Port of Los Angeles.

These were the first new details about SpaceX’s rocket construction we’d gotten since April, when Musk posted a photo that revealed SpaceX was building the spacecraft using a 40-foot-long, 30-foot-wide cylindrical tool.

Google, JPMorgan Chase & Co, IBM, Other Key Companies To Attend White House Quantum Computing Meeting

Posted by in categories: quantum physics, robotics/AI, transportation

Quantum computing ‘will enable us to predict and improve chemical reactions, new materials and their properties, as well as provide new understandings of spacetime and the emergence of our universe,’ the White House said.

Google, IBM, JPMorgan Chase & Co., and other key U.S. companies are set to attend a White House quantum computing meeting to be held on Monday, Reuters reports.

A groundbreaking technology still in its infancy, quantum computing could have a major impact on transportation, healthcare, communications, weather forecasting, artificial intelligence, and other areas. Quantum computing could, experts claim, revolutionize our society.

The Looking Glass — Um Display Holográfico Interativo

Posted by in category: futurism

Esse é o “The Looking Glass”, que clama ser um display holográfico interativo. Apesar de achar que o mesmo é um display 3D volumétrico e não um holograma real, isso não tira a graça dele.

Study of one million people leads to world’s biggest advance in blood pressure genetics

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, genetics

Over 500 new gene regions that influence people’s blood pressure have been discovered in the largest global genetic study of blood pressure to date, led by Queen Mary University of London and Imperial College London.

Involving more than one million participants, the results more than triple the number of gene regions to over 1,000 and means that almost a third of the estimated heritability for pressure is now explained.

The study, published in Nature Genetics and supported by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), Medical Research Council and British Heart Foundation, also reports a strong role of these genes, not only in blood vessels, but also within the adrenal glands above the kidney, and in body fat.
