Civilizations at the End of Time: Dying Earth

Posted by in categories: habitats, media & arts, quantum physics, space

A trip deep into the far future, to the End of Earth.
Visit our sponsor, Brilliant: https://brilliant.org/IsaacArthur/
For most of human history, the end of Earth, the Universe, and Time itself were all identical, now we know the world will end in 4 billion years, long before the Universe begins to wind down. Today we will ask how we can extend that, and keep Earth around for far longer.

The Tragedy of Droids in Star Wars

Posted by in categories: media & arts, robotics/AI, space

It’s not really a Star Wars story unless there’s a lovable or memorable droid stealing the spotlight. But, when you really stop and think about it, there’s also something profoundly tragic about the role artificial lifeforms play in the Star Wars universe.

The US Space Force’s secretive X-37B space plane: 10 surprising facts

Posted by in categories: military, robotics/AI, space

The U.S. Space Force has a mini-fleet of two robotic X-37B space planes, which have been flying secret missions since 2010.

The most recent mission, called OTV-6, launched in May 2020 and is ongoing. As that name suggests, it’s the sixth flight for the robotic X-37B, which is also known as the Orbital Test Vehicle (OTV). The other five OTV missions launched in April 2010, March 2011, December 2012, May 2015 and September 2017.

We’ve assembled 10 surprising facts about the military space plane for you. Just click the arrows to launch to the next page and enjoy.

The Gold In Our Galaxy May Be 10 Billion Years Old, Say Scientists

Posted by in categories: physics, space, supercomputing

The hundreds of gold-rich stars discovered in our Milky Way galaxy may have come from smaller galaxies that merged 10 billion years ago, according to new simulations by a supercomputer.

Using the ATERUI II supercomputer in the Center for Computational Astrophysics at the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan, scientists at Tohoku University and the University of Notre Dame developed new simulations of galaxy formation with the highest resolution yet.

The paper was published this week in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.
