It’s been a hell of a week for Tesla CEO Elon Musk: federal investigations, allegations of drug trafficking, and a tearful interview with the biggest newspaper in the world. The interview, which MKBHD promoted as "the most important video probably ever on my channel," took place August 15th, a week after Musk’s fateful "funding secured" tweet about taking Tesla private. Toward the beginning of the 17-minute interview, Musk said he hoped to scale production at Tesla and lower their design...
According to documents published this week, the company has applied for a patent entitled "Blockchain Systems and Methods for User Authentication." The abstract to the patent describes the project in more detail, stating that computer-implemented methods and systems are provided for blockchain-mediated user authentication and going on to list potential applications of a user system, which will include verification messages indicating that the root system successfully authenticated the user and including an authorization code for receiving, from the root system,...
If you’re a certain age, it’s likely that you’ve never given a second thought to buying a municipal bond or the process of bond buying, even if you’ve intuited, rightly, that’s it’s an intentionally opaque business. Yet there could be a big opportunity for startups, and for people looking for places to invest, and for cities with crumbling infrastructures, in disrupting the status quo — if only everyone starts playing closer attention. Most people with hefty tax bills are benefiting...
This breathtaking new video illustrates why life on the International Space Station (ISS) is not suited to people who suffer from claustrophobia. Artemyev starts the route inside the Japanese storage module, which is in the furthest corner of the space station and finishes in the Russian part of the station. Artemyev is currently enjoying his third expedition to space, having reached the ISS travelling aboard the Soyuz MS-08 in April 2018. The International Space Station (ISS) is a $100 billion...
In May, CCN reported that Pricewaterhousecoopers, a "Big Four" auditor better known as PwC, acquired stake in the Chinese cryptocurrency with the intent of utilizing the VeChain IoT network to serve multi-billion dollar clients and conglomerates that rely on the services of PwC. The strategic partnership between PwC and VeChain in May was especially valuable because PwC acquired a small ownership interest in the VeChain network, with the plan of collaborating with the VeChain development team as an investor, not...
The idea of forming a "Space Force" as a branch of the military gets ridiculed in some circles, but for former Navy pilot and current NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine, it’s abundantly clear that America’s enemies see space as a potentially devastating avenue of attack. His comments came during a wide-ranging, exclusive interview with KRMG from his office in Washington, D.C.[Hear the entire interview HERE, or use the embedded audio player below] "Our very way of life in this country is...
But space is also unfathomably large, so even that infinitesimally small amounts of gas can be detected by astronomers as they peer back into the depths of our galaxy. That’s because as light from stars and galaxies passes through the gas, certain wavelengths of light can get absorbed by even sparse material, a signal that astronomers here on Earth can detect. Back when the universe was still young—a mere one billion years old—this gas was more opaque than it is...
A United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket launches NASA's Parker Solar Probe on its epic sun-studying mission on Aug. 12, 2018, from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. The Parker Solar Probe, which launched early Sunday morning (Aug. 12) from Florida's Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, is notching flight milestones according to plan, NASA officials said today (Aug. 17). [NASA's Parker Solar Probe Mission to the Sun in Pictures]In addition, the probe has been using its thrusters to...
Fred Chong, the Seymour Goodman Professor of Computer Science at the University of Chicago, will receive $3 million to lead the STAQ software team, bridging the gap between new architectures developed by the project and theoretical algorithms that apply quantum computing to chemistry, physics and other domains. Fred Chong’s contributions to STAQ will complement his leadership of the $10 million EPIQC (the Enabling Practical-scale Quantum Computation) project announced earlier this year. While the two projects share several researchers and a...
Journal of Power Sources – Demonstration of high current densities and extended cycling in the garnet Li7La3Zr2O12 solid electrolyte• Critical current densities as high as 6.0 mA cm−2 were demonstrated at 60 °C. • 702 mAh cm−2 total Li was plated at 60 °C with 3.0 mAh cm−2 per half cycle. By combining recent achievements in reducing interface resistance and optimizing microstructure, we demonstrate Li cycling at current densities competitive with Li-ion. LiLLZOLi cells are capable of cycling at up to 0.9 ± 0.7 mA cm−2, 3.8 ± 0.9 mA cm−2, and 6.0 ± 0.7 mA cm-2 at room...
