The first effective artificial sun in the US is to be ready in 5 years

Scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Commonwealth Fusion Systems said they are in the process of building an experimental artificial sun called SPARC. Their reactor is to be the first in the world to achieve a positive energy balance, which means that it will produce more energy during operation than it will use to keep the plasma heated.

Astronomers discover a supermassive black hole that traps 6 galaxies

The most recent supermassive black hole we have detected is located at the center of the SDSS J103027.09 052455.0 quasar. It has a mass of one billion times the mass of the Sun and such a powerful gravity that it traps as many as 6 galaxies closest to it. It should be emphasized that its gravitational tentacles extend over 300 times the diameter of the Milky Way. Interestingly, this black hole is a very old object that was formed only less than a billion years after the Big Bang.

The Poles will help build bases on the Moon and Mars and missions to foreign planets

Poles have the ambition to participate in even more groundbreaking missions that will be carried out by the American Space Agency or the European Space Agency in the coming decade. We are talking here, for example, about the construction of the Lunar Space Port, which will be a transfer point for journeys to the Moon and Mars. We must also carry out our mission to the surface of both objects and build the first human colonies there.

A 500-megapixel camera for surveillance of pedestrians has been developed in China

60 million Big Brother cameras in China rely on artificial intelligence technology to recognize passersby. This is important because the system detects criminals and records any illegal activities. The bottleneck of the entire technology, however, is cameras that record images in low resolution. If there is little detail in the images, then the artificial intelligence has a problem with quick and correct face identification.

Smooth skin like a child of any age? Scientists have discovered the elixir of youth

Researchers at Washington State University in a study published in eLife magazine describe a new factor that acts as a molecular switch in the skin of young mice that is turned off when the skin is formed. Interestingly, the researchers managed to turn it on again, which resulted in faster wound healing without scarring - the newly formed skin was even covered with fur and had the ability to contract the paroparous muscles located at the base of the hair follicles, i.e. the popular goosebumps. - We were able to take the innate ability of a newborn's young skin to regenerate and transfer it to the old skin. We have shown that, in principle, this type of regeneration is possible, explains Ryan Driskell, one of the authors of the study.

SpaceX missiles will transport nuclear weapons and military equipment for the Pentagon

Elon Musk is already 3rd on the list of the richest people in the world. Experts are sure that it will take him less than 2 years to reach first place. The US government itself and its latest projects, which are to ensure the United States further military domination in the world, will also help him in this.
