Este es el cráter de impacto más grande sobre la Tierra y tiene 300 kilómetros de diámetro
Cada día, la Tierra recibe alrededor de 100 toneladas de materia extraterrestre en forma de granos de polvo. El 99 % de esos granos tienen un tamaño aproximado de entre 0,05 y 0,5 milímetros. De vez en cuando caen objetos mucho más masivos. Como el que originó el mayor cráter de impacto del que tenemos constancia sobre la Tierra…

Hubble finds far-away planet vanishing at record speed

Hubble finds far-away planet vanishing at record speed
The illustration shows a giant cloud of hydrogen streaming off a warm, Neptune-sized planet just 97 light-years from Earth. The exoplanet is tiny compared to its star, a red dwarf named GJ 3470. The star’s intense radiation is heating the hydrogen in the planet’s upper atmosphere to a point where it escapes into space. The alien world is losing hydrogen at a rate 100 times faster than a previously observed warm Neptune whose atmosphere is also evaporating away…

The speed and distance at which planets orbit their respective blazing stars can determine each planet’s fate—whether the planet remains a longstanding part of its solar system or evaporates into the universe’s dark graveyard more quickly.

VMware Paid $550M for Heptio to Boost Its Kubernetes Portfolio

VMware Paid $550M for Heptio to Boost Its Kubernetes Portfolio
VMware paid $550 million for its recently closed acquisition of 2-year-old Kubernetes-focused startup Heptio. That amount was a substantial premium over what Heptio had raised from investors and other similar deals in the Kubernetes space. According to filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), VMware’s purchase price of Heptio included both cash and the assumption of unvested equity awards. Seattle-based Heptio was founded in late 2016, and had raised $33.5 million in total funding. Heptio’s investors included Madrona Venture Group, Accel Partners, and Lightspeed Venture Partners…

Supermicro: We told you the tampering claims were false
Computer manufacturer Supermicro is still trying to lay to rest reports that the Chinese government tampered with its equipment to spy on Western cloud users. The San Jose-based company published a letter this week claiming that independent tests had cleared its equipment of any compromise. Supermicro sells data centre computers to Western customers using components made by contractors in China. It has spent the last two months denying that Chinese subcontractors have been secretly embedding microscopic chips onto its motherboards that enable it to remotely control the computers’ operating systems and watch what they’re doing…
