These recycled space shuttle parts are now powering Artemis I to space

Posted by in category: space travel

The Artemis I mission’s rocket engines and boosters have direct ties to Columbia, Challenger and each of the other shuttles, and even one of the original Mercury 7 astronauts.

Where And When To Watch NASA Launch The Most Powerful Rocket Ever Made As Artemis-1 Mission Looms

Posted by in category: space travel

Have you heard about the biggest rocket launch in human history? It’s getting almost zero press coverage, but before breakfast on Monday, August 29, 2022, NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket will make its maiden voyage.

It’s now on the launchpad in Florida.

Everything you need to know about timings and live coverage of NASA’s most impressive rocket launch since 1973 as the Artemis-1 mission sees the Space Launch System and Orion spacecraft go to the Moon.

The billionaire owns a small three-bedroom house

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, habitats, space travel

Billionaire Elon Musk is known for being frugal. In June of 2021, he tweeted about living in a tiny house, stating: “My primary home is literally a ~$50k house in Boca Chica / Starbase that I rent from SpaceX. It’s kinda awesome though.”

That home is so small that it does not even have space for his mom when she visits. As such, the matriarch has to sleep in the garage.

The Technological Singularity is Near

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, military, robotics/AI, singularity, space travel

This video will address the hypothesis that advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and neurotechnology could trigger a technological singularity. The singularity could involve the development of artificial intelligence (AI) that is superior to human intelligence, effectively blurring or perhaps removing the distinction between humans and machines.

There is no agreement on when artificial superintelligence will be achieved. Still, one thing is sure: we need to think about our collective goals before the alarming trend of technological singularity makes them irrelevant. Whether powered by AI or some other technical method, the singularity will result in a technological tsunami that will pose unprecedented challenges to human civilization and the physical world on all scales.

Inside Tesla’s Innovative And Homegrown “Dojo” AI Supercomputer

Posted by in categories: military, nuclear weapons, robotics/AI, space travel, supercomputing

How expensive and difficult does hyperscale-class AI training have to be for a maker of self-driving electric cars to take a side excursion to spend how many hundreds of millions of dollars to go off and create its own AI supercomputer from scratch? And how egotistical and sure would the company’s founder have to be to put together a team that could do it?

Like many questions, when you ask these precisely, they tend to answer themselves. And what is clear is that Elon Musk, founder of both SpaceX and Tesla as well as a co-founder of the OpenAI consortium, doesn’t have time – or money – to waste on science projects.

Moon exploration site preservation remains uncertain as Artemis era begins

Posted by in category: space travel

With NASA’s Artemis 1 mission launching to the moon this month, Space.com is taking a look at what we know about the moon and why we care. Join us for our Moon Week special report in the countdown to Artemis 1.

Lunar exploration is often described, even in the moment, with the lofty language of history books and the achievements of humanity. And with good reason — each new mission to the moon presents the possibility of ground-breaking discovery and historic firsts. But without care, lunar missions could also endanger the historic sites of prior human exploration.

The Artemis I mission launches NASA’s return to the moon, 50 years after the last moonwalk. Astronauts explain why it took so long

Posted by in category: space travel

NASA’s new Space Launch System had some technical issues, but astronauts say the real reason the US hasn’t returned to the moon is political.

The Daedalus Project

Project Icarus is an extremely fascinating initiative which aims to bring humanity closer to the stars. The latest theory proposed by scientists there is related to the development of system which could allow the harvesting of helium-3 gas from Uranus to fuel a possible interstellar mission. Uranus, then, seems to be a very resourceful planet, considering scientists believe it’s covered in oceans of diamonds.
