NASA announces date for when it begins its journey back to the Moon

Jak Connor | Science, Space, Health & Robotics | Sat, Oct 23 2021 3:45 AM CDT

Yesterday, NASA officially announced when it will begin the first mission of its Artemis lunar program that aims to take humans back to the Moon as early as 2024.

On October 20, engineers successfully stacked the crew capsule on top of the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket that is slated to be the means of transportation to the Moon. The first step on getting humans back on the Moon is Artemis 1 - an uncrewed mission that will test the Orion spacecraft, the SLS rocket and ground systems at Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. Artemis 1 will send the Orion spacecraft 280,000 miles from Earth - farther than any human spacecraft has ever flown before.

Throughout its journey, the NASA spacecraft will separate from the Interim Cryogenic Propulsion Stage (ICPS) about two hours after launch and begin deploying small satellites over several days called CubeSats, which will be used to perform several experiments and technology demonstrations. On its way to the Moon, engineers on the ground will be testing all of Orion's systems to make sure everything is operational for when humans embark.

'First-ever free flying commercial space station' locks in launch date

Nanoracks, along with partnering companies, has announced the launch date window for its first-ever free-flying commercial space station named Starlab.

Starlab is set to become the world's first free-flying commercial space station, which means that it won't be locked into one orbit position, separating itself from the likes of the International Space Station. The new space station will feature a 12,000 cubic feet habitat module that will have the capacity to house four astronauts. Additionally, Starlab will feature a laboratory to conduct research, a large external robotic arm for servicing payloads and cargo, as well as a payload capacity of 776 cubic feet - similar to the ISS.

Jeffrey Manber, CEO, and Co-Founder of Nanoracks, said in the press release, "Since the beginning, Nanoracks has sought to own and operate a private space station to fully unlock market demand. Our team has spent the last decade learning the business of space stations, understanding customer needs, charting market growth, and self-investing in private hardware on the ISS like the Bishop Airlock. Nanoracks and our team are excited to work with NASA and our friends across the world as we move forward with Starlab."

Here's why you should be terrified for NASA's newest space telescope

Jak Connor | Science, Space, Health & Robotics | Sat, Oct 23 2021 2:32 AM CDT

NASA has released a new video that details the launch of its highly-anticipated James Webb Space Telescope - the telescope that is said to replace the Hubble Space Telescope.

NASA and many contractors have been working on the JWST for many years and have experienced numerous delays attributed to technology challenges, the COVID-19 pandemic, and many other issues. But now, the space agency is nearing the end of the road for the telescope as it gears up for launch.

In the new video posted to the JWST YouTube channel, Webb's Mission Lead System's Engineer, Mike Menzel, explains that Webb has "300 single-point failure items, and they all have to work right. When you're a million miles from the Earth, you can't send someone to fix it".

Apple TV+ sitcom goes gold, Mythic Quest renewed for Season 3 and 4

Anthony Garreffa | TV, Movies & Home Theatre | Fri, Oct 22 2021 10:51 PM CDT

If you haven't watched Mythic Quest and love comedies, you really should -- it is an Apple TV+ series that is based in the gaming industry, with a fictional game developer and their triumphs and struggles -- and now it has been renewed for two more seasons.

Mythic Quest S2 aired this year, with the third season now dropping in 2022 and the fourth season most likely dropping in 2023 at this rate. The announcement of Mythic Quest being renewed for two more seasons on Apple TV+ was fantastic in its own way -- co-creator Rob McElhenney (who also plays Ian Grimm on the show) announced the news with Jason Sudeikis (from the also-fantastic Ted Lasso, also on Apple TV) and even Anthony Hopkins. Hopkins was featured for narrating the "Everlight" episode of Mythic Quest.

As for the show itself, Ubisoft is a big part of Mythic Quest as a co-producer on the Apple TV+ series. This gives the show one of the best feels of "this sounds real" in the game development and tech worlds, versus a bunch of jargon that was pulled down from Wikipedia and YouTube.

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition has DLSS on PC

Anthony Garreffa | Gaming | Fri, Oct 22 2021 10:00 PM CDT

Rockstar announced the Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition just hours ago, dropping on November 11 for virtually all of the consoles and of course, the PC.

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition on the PC will have support for NVIDIA DLSS, with DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) offering its usual modes (Quality, Balanced, Performance) for the GTA trilogy in its best form yet. Rockstar has overhauled virtually everything with the GTA trilogy remaster,

Because you're not going to be as strained running the Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition at 4K as you would a brand new AAA game made in 2021, if you've got the GPU horsepower you could use Quality mode and enjoy even better-looking graphics without the performance hit.

Digital World Acquisition Corp stock skyrockets 1000%+ thanks to Trump

Anthony Garreffa | Business, Financial & Legal | Fri, Oct 22 2021 9:11 PM CDT

If you purchased Digital World Acquisition Corp. (DWAC) a week ago... hell, just a couple of days ago, you'd be laughing all the way to the bank right now.

Digital World Acquisition Corp stock skyrockets 1000%+ thanks to Trump 01 | TweakTown.com

President Donald J. Trump announced his new social media company, TRUTH Social, in the last 24 hours or so, and was announced that Trump Media & Technology Group and Digital World Acquisition Corp. have entered into a definitive merger agreement that makes TMTG into a publicly listed company, subject to regulatory and stockholder approval.

Between then and now, just 24 hours or so, Digital World Acquisition Corp. stock has skyrocketed from around $10 or so, through to a huge $105 representing an increase of 1000% or more. We're talking crazy manic meme-level crypto gains, but in the "real-world" of stock trading. DWAC stock skyrocketed 357% just today, which is crazy.

MSI MEG Z690: 'CPU Force 2' BIOS OC diagnostic tool for Alder Lake CPU

Anthony Garreffa | Motherboards | Fri, Oct 22 2021 8:16 PM CDT

MSI is going to be offering something special on its MEG Z690 motherboards with a new feature called CPU Force 2, which will assist you in your journies overclocking your new Intel 12th Gen Core "Alder Lake" CPU.

The next-gen MSI MEG Z690 motherboards will have both CPU Force 2 and Memory Force overclocking tools, which will help you with overclocking your Intel Alder lake CPU and DDR5 RAM. How does CPU Force 2 work exactly? Once you've installed your new 12th Gen Core "Alder Lake" CPU into the MSI MEG Z690 motherboard, you'll start with a score of 100, and CPU Force 2 will detect your settings and see how they fit, and then adjust the score.

The lower the score, the better -- so CPU Force 2 will detect your settings and provide a lower score, which means you'll have better stability and overclocking headroom in your new Alder Lake processor. If you've made adjustments and CPU Force 2 doesn't like them, then you'll get a higher score. This will come in handy with power consumption and voltage running through Intel's new Alder Lake CPU, but it's not a one-button OC tool that does it for you.
