Hibernation artificially triggered in potential space travel breakthrough

Posted by in categories: innovation, space travel

In science fiction, space crews are often spared the boredom and inconvenience of long-distance space travel by being placed into a state of suspended animation. Now this goal may have come a step closer after scientists showed that hibernation can be artificially triggered in rodents using ultrasonic pulses.

The advance is seen as significant because the technique was effective in rats – animals that do not naturally hibernate. This raises the prospect that humans may also retain a vestigial hibernation circuit in the brain that could be artificially reactivated.

Before the Big Bang 11: Is the Universe a Time Machine?

Posted by in categories: cosmology, evolution, quantum physics, time travel

What happened before the Big Bang? In two of our previous films we examined cyclic cosmologies and time travel universe models. Specially, the Gott and Li Model and Penrose’s Conformal Cyclic Cosmology Recently Beth Gould and Niayesh Afshordi of the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics have fused these two models together to create a startling new vision of the universe. In this film they explain their new proposal, known as Periodic Time Cosmology.

Unlock The Power Of FinOps To Manage Data And Analytics Costs

Posted by in category: computing

I recently got a call from my IT department asking why I was driving a significant amount of Azure spending in the past month. Before we were in the cloud, this type of question never came up. Rather, it was me asking IT for more servers to run my workloads. Whether or not I was using our on-premise computing resources was irrelevant—that is, until I ran out.

My experience is not at all unique. In our modern, post-cloud world, every organization has gone from unmetered, unfettered access to compute resources to a metered, easy-to-inspect, pay-by-the-second cloud spending nightmare. What we gained in endlessly scalable, elastic compute, we lost in our ability to run workloads without anyone watching. This new reality demands an elevated level of fiscal responsibility and shared ownership, especially as it relates to analytics.

The cloud computing pay-per-use model means organizations can no longer run workloads without considering the costs those workloads generate. It’s now imperative that organizations manage their cloud spending to stay competitive.
