‘We may need new physics’: Astronomers don’t know why universe is expanding so fast [ but the universe is not expanding, this is just an illusion ]
For the first time ever, supermassive black holes have been used to measure the growth of the universe. In a new study published to Nature Astronomy, astronomers have found the universe is expanding faster than previously thought. [ As we said before, there is no expansion, because the red-shifting is not caused by galaxies moving away from us, it is caused by the gravity of the Universe behind these galaxies, which pulls the light which came from them, because the Cosmos is much bigger than we thought, and hence, there is no Big-Bang, no extra 21 dimensions, there is no dark energy, dark matter exists, but it is not something “exotic” it is made of black holes, because the Universe is much older, and then it had time to make enough supernovas, and then, there is no need of “exotic” physics: Simple Eh?…

AMD, Nvidia GPUs at Risk as TSMC Halts Production Amid Chemical Contamination

AMD, Nvidia GPUs at Risk as TSMC Halts Production Amid Chemical Contamination
A chemical contamination at semiconductor maker TSMC’s Fab 14 B has resulted in the creation of at least 10,000 defective wafers, Taiwanese news site ETtoday reported today. TSMC has ceased production in response, which will allow it to investigate the extent of the problem, but it could also lead to significant delays for the company’s many customers…

Pay More for Less With the Intel Core i9-9900KF

Pay More for Less With the Intel Core i9-9900KF
In an ideal world, a product lacking a certain feature should cost less than a full-fledged version that comes with all the bells and whistles. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case with the upcoming Intel Core i9-9900KF processor, which lacks integrated graphics yet has been priced higher than the Intel Core i9-9900K…

World’s largest digital sky survey issues biggest astronomical data release ever

World’s largest digital sky survey issues biggest astronomical data release ever
The Pan-STARRS Observatory is a 1.8-meter telescope located at the summit of Haleakalā, on Maui, Hawaii. For four years beginning in May 2010, the Pan-STARRS observatory surveyed the entire three-quarters of the sky visible from Hawaii many times in many colors of light. One of the survey’s goals was to look for moving objects and transient or variable objects, including asteroids that could potentially threaten the Earth…

World’s largest digital sky survey issues biggest astronomical data release ever
The Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) in Baltimore, Maryland, in conjunction with the University of Hawai’i Institute for Astronomy (IfA), is releasing the second edition of data from Pan-STARRS—the Panoramic Survey Telescope & Rapid Response System—the world’s largest digital sky survey. This second release contains over 1.6 petabytes of data (a petabyte is 1015 bytes or one million gigabytes), making it the largest volume of astronomica…

Curiosity snaps a selfie before heading off to new adventures
NASA may be on the edge of its seat as it waits to see if its aging Opportunity rover will wake back up from its extended downtime, but it’s not the only piece of scientific hardware on the Red Planet. The trusty Curiosity rover is still going strong, and after spending over a year at its current location on the Vera Rubin Ridge, it’s ready to move on…

Space Travel May Increase Astronauts’ Susceptibility to Cancer

Space Travel May Increase Astronauts’ Susceptibility to Cancer
Lengthy space missions such as a journey to Mars may take a serious toll on astronauts’ immune systems, a recent study suggests. Researchers analyzed blood samples from eight astronauts who served roughly six-month missions aboard the International Space Station. They found significant negative impacts on “natural killer” (NK) cells, a class of white blood cell that knocks out cancer cells. “When we look at the function of the astronaut samples during flight compared to their own samples before they flew, it goes down. When we compare them to controls who stayed on Earth, it still goes down,” study lead author Richard Simpson, an associate professor of nutritional sciences at the University of Arizona, said in a statement. “I don’t think there’s any doubt that NK-cell function is decreasing in the spaceflight environment when analyzed in a cell culture system.”…

The Hubble Telescope’s Deep View of the Universe Is Now Even More Astounding!

The Hubble Telescope’s Deep View of the Universe Is Now Even More Astounding!
One of the Hubble Space Telescope’s most famous images peered even deeper into the cosmos than scientists had thought. That photo is the Hubble Ultra-Deep Field (HUDF), which combines hundreds of images taken by the space telescope over multiple years into the deepest view of the universe ever created. The composite pic of a small patch of sky contains a whopping 10,000 galaxies, astronomers have estimated. (The HUDF also refers to that patch of sky, not just imagery of it.). Now, researchers have painstakingly reprocessed the iconic image, recovering lots of additional light, a new study reports…

AMD EPYC Rome 64-Core CPU Brings The Pain To Xeon Platinum In C-Ray Benchmark Demo
Competition is a good thing, and AMD sure is bringing it to Intel these days, and not just on the budget end of the spectrum. Zen has proven a capable architecture, and just as importantly, it’s serving as a long-term foundation to compete with Intel across the board. The latest example of this is another demo AMD posted showing a single second-generation Epyc “Rome” CPU beating a pair of Intel Xeon Platinum 8180M CPUs in the C-Ray benchmark…

Volcán prehistórico disparó el calentamiento global en Escocia

Volcán prehistórico disparó el calentamiento global en Escocia
El calentamiento global es un tema de preocupación en la actualidad. Pero resulta que fue también un punto crítico para el equilibrio de los ecosistemas del planeta hace 56 millones de años. Y ese balance habría sido fastidiado entonces por un volcán prehistórico. Un nuevo es interesante estudio, publicado en la más reciente edición de Nature; bajo el nombre de A large explosive silicic eruption in the British Palaeogene Igneous Province; narra la investigación de un grupo de científicos para comprobar este hecho…
