Watch NASA test the world’s most powerful rocket ever on Saturday

NASA is going to light up the most powerful rocket it’s ever built Saturday (Jan. 16), though it won’t go anywhere. The test, scheduled for sometime between 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. EST, will be the first test of the core of the Space Launch System (SLS). That’s the rocket NASA hopes will one day […]

NASA will soon fire up the most powerful rocket ever built

NASA plans to ignite the most powerful rocket it’s ever built on Jan. 17 according to a statement from the agency. It will be the first firing of the Space Launch System (SLS), the long-awaited (and delayed) rocket ship that NASA plans to use for non-commercial human space flight. It’s the centerpiece of NASA’s Artemis […]

Powerful cyclone makes landfall in India

Residents walk along a deserted road as Cyclone Nivar approached the southeastern Indian coast in Puducherry on November 25, 2020 A powerful cyclonic storm hurtled into India’s southern coast early Thursday, uprooting trees and packing strong winds and rains as tens of thousands of people took refuge in shelters. The centre of Nivar made landfall […]

Prototype tech shrinks AI to deliver brain-like functionality in one powerful device — ScienceDaily

Researchers have developed artificial intelligence technology that brings together imaging, processing, machine learning and memory in one electronic chip, powered by light. The prototype shrinks artificial intelligence technology by imitating the way that the human brain processes visual information. The nanoscale advance combines the core software needed to drive artificial intelligence with image-capturing hardware in […]
