[The Epoch Times, Rhagfyr 03, 2022](The Epoch Times) NASA’s (NASA) mission to study life in space continues. Its recently launched BioSentinel (BioSentinel) satellite has successfully flown over the moon.
The mission of NASA’s Bio-Sentinel satellite is to study the effects of interplanetary space radiation on yeast.
As humans resume the moon landing program and space exploration becomes more and more intensive, information such as the effect of space radiation on life becomes more and more important.
On November 16, 2022, BioSentinel is one of 10 CubeSats that will be launched along with NASA’s Artemis I unmanned lunar lander rocket.
Shortly after launch, BioSentinel successfully sent back a signal, and successfully flew past the moon on November 22, 2022, continuing its journey into deep space.
The BioSentinel carries microbes in the form of yeast and studies the effects of space radiation on microbes with a tri-color and color LED sensing system that provides a readout of yeast cell activity. ◇
Flintshire County Council authorizes SpaceX to begin deployment of next-generation Starlink satellites
(The Epoch Times) The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently authorized Musk’s SpaceX to launch up to 7,500 next-generation “Starlink” satellites.
SpaceX’s Starlink program has been approved to launch up to 12,000 satellites and has applied to place another 30,000 second-generation Starlink satellites in low-earth orbit.
Current and potential SpaceX competitors, including companies such as Viasat, DISH, and Amazon, have submitted objections to SpaceX’s second-generation Starlink program to the FCC.
However, the FCC did not fully approve SpaceX’s request, instead limiting the number of its second-generation satellites to “address concerns about orbital debris and space safety.”
SpaceX was asked to coordinate with other satellite operators, as well as NASA and the National Science Foundation, to conduct scientific observation missions of the night sky and radio astronomy, respectively.
SpaceX sends thousands of Starlink satellites into low Earth orbit, and provides Internet services to end users on earth through these satellites. SpaceX has launched 3,500 first-generation Starlink satellites and has 500,000 users worldwide. ◇
Apple enters virtual reality, iOS welcomes new member xrOS
(The Epoch Times) Although Apple has never revealed its head-mounted AR/VR display device, although it “still holds the half-hidden pipe”, there are signs that Apple has decided to make its AR display / VR mounted on the head. system, called “xrOS”.
According to Bloomberg, this is an update to Apple’s original RealityOS or rOS, and the new xrOS system is said to be very powerful.
“XR” stands for Augmented Reality, and is about augmented and virtual reality.
Apple’s headset is said to support augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) functions, which may be similar to “mixed reality” like Microsoft’s Hololens.
Apple’s xrOS is said to include new versions of existing apps, such as Maps and Info, optimized for AR/VR experiences.
During the development process, Apple referred to the headset’s operating system as “rOS” internally, but the name “xrOS” may make the features of Apple’s headset more obvious. There is no indication yet when the headset will be launched. ◇
Musk can conduct brain-controlled human trials in 6 months
(The Epoch Times) Brain control technology is undoubtedly one of the most controversial cutting-edge technologies. On the one hand, it has seriously challenged human ethics and morality, because it requires experiments on living animals or human beings; on the other hand, more and more Chinese people have come forward to accuse the CCP of using mind-controlled weapons to secretly carry out persecution.
Neuralink, Musk’s brain-computer interface company, plans to advance this technology and begin human trials of brain-controlled technology “in about six months.”
Not long ago, Elon Musk announced at Neuralink’s Fremont, California headquarters that he plans to begin human trials of brain-computer interfaces within six months, and is currently awaiting approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. US.
According to Neuralink, its brain-controlled devices use tiny electrodes placed in the brain to “read” signals from nearby neurons, and software then decodes those signals into commands or actions, such as moving a cursor or an arm robotic.
Neuralink aims to create a device that can be implanted in the brain and used to control a computer.
In fact, in April 2021, Neuralink released a video of a monkey playing an electronic table tennis game with its mind, showing its technological achievements to the public.
