This is how the launch of the probe from the surface of the moon and the flight into orbit looks like in the movie

The next stage of the historic mission of the Middle Kingdom to the moon was perfectly successful. Now the last stage remains, but the most difficult in the whole undertaking. The orbiter is about to embark on a perilous journey to Earth, on board with valuable samples. The landing of the capsule in the Middle Kingdom is to take place between December 15 and 16 this year.

Yesterday, the Arecibo Observatory was completely destroyed. See it in photos

Yesterday, the Arecibo Observatory was completely destroyed. See it in photos

Yesterday on the Twitter profile of the American National Science Foundation (NSF), to which the Arecibo Observatory belongs, there was a sad entry about another disaster at the famous facility. This time, a 900-ton platform with a receiver fell onto the canopy of the radio telescope, which hung 150 meters on it. The destruction is so extensive that there is no hope of rebuilding this historic building.

A mild history of CoVID-19 increases the risk of mental illness

A mild history of CoVID-19 increases the risk of mental illness

It is worth emphasizing that the research did not involve questioning people who had had Covid-19 (which could give false results because many people do not want to admit to strangers that they have mental problems), but a huge database of patients. They show that convalescents report anxiety, depression or insomnia twice as often as people suffering from other diseases. "Many people feared that Covid-19 survivors would be at increased risk of developing mental illness, and unfortunately our large and detailed research suggests that they are," explains study author Paul Harrison.

Poland is one of the few countries in the world with the cheapest fiber optic cable

Poland is one of the few countries in the world with the cheapest fiber optic cable

So far we have lagged behind the countries of the world in terms of quick and cheap access to the global network, but this is the past. Despite the fact that Poland is not a rich country, like the countries of Western Europe, whose economic development after World War II was not artificially inhibited, now we are no longer behind them in terms of the Internet, and even in many respects we are superior to them.

Special plates from a 3D printer will fight for the biodiversity of the edge bands

The most problematic in such situations are the small sea creatures living in the coastal zone, which like to hide in nooks between stones or cracks in the walls. There, it is much easier for them to get food, hide from predators or wait out the scorching sun at low tide. Unfortunately, artificial barriers are usually flat cement walls, which are not able to replace the natural ones, or at least this has been the case until now, because scientists came up with an idea how to prevent it.

Here is an innovative malaria test. Just stick a patch and we have the result

Here is an innovative malaria test. Just stick a patch and we have the result

Malaria is the most common infectious disease in the world, affecting over 220 million people every year - for example, in 2018 it was 228 million cases, which led to 405,000 deaths. Cases outside the endemic areas of this disease (it is worth noting that Poland once belonged to them too) are relatively rare, so as you can easily guess, there are regions where it is a real plague. And that's exactly what happens in Africa, where we see 93% of all cases and 94% of deaths. As with many diseases, quick action is key, but unfortunately testing for malaria means taking a blood sample, testing it in a laboratory, and evaluating doctors.

Poles discovered the smallest planet traversing the galaxy alone

Poles discovered the smallest planet traversing the galaxy alone

There would be nothing unusual about this discovery, because we know many such exoplanets, were it not for the fact that it is the smallest such object known to us. Amazingly, the planet is the size of the Earth. Until now, astronomers believed that there were no such small objects of this type in our galaxy. Now we know that there may be more.

Samsung and Stanford University announce a groundbreaking OLED display for VR

Samsung and Stanford University announce a groundbreaking OLED display for VR

When Won-Jae Joo was visiting Stanford University in 2016-2018, he heard about an innovative idea there, i.e. ultra-thin solar cells that have the chance to mess up a lot of renewable energy, which immediately lit a few lamps in his head. After the presentation, it quickly became clear that Samsung would not miss such an opportunity and the units decided to cooperate, which resulted in a new architecture of organic light emitting diodes (OLED), significantly increasing the pixel density. This is a real breakthrough that can provide virtual reality with a whole new opening, deepening immersion to an unprecedented level.

Meet Loyal Wingman, the first fully autonomous aerial killing drone

Meet Loyal Wingman, the first fully autonomous aerial killing drone

DARPA and Boeing are jointly implementing another amazing project that is to change beyond recognition future air combat and the implementation of even the most daring missions. It is about Air Combat Evolution (ACE), i.e. a system of cooperation between pilots, drones and artificial intelligence. The Pentagon wants to ultimately eliminate pilots, but before that happens, it wants to support them with the latest artificial intelligence systems and use the advantages of each side and give them an advantage in all conditions and over each enemy.
