Planets outside our solar system
Thousands flocked to Munich this week for a major gathering — not Oktoberfest, but GTC Europe. The conference, now in its third year, is a celebration of groundbreaking GPU-accelerated work across the region. Nearly 300 developers, startups and researchers took the stage, sharing innovative projects. Among them were some of the major science centers in Europe, spanning fields as diverse as particle physics, climate research and neuroscience. Understanding the Universe Técnico Lisboa, Portugal Nuclear energy today is generated through nuclear fission: the process of splitting apart an atom’s nucleus, which creates both usable energy and radioactive waste. A cleaner and more powerful alternative is nuclear fusion, the joining together of two nuclei. But so far, scientists haven’t been able to sustain a nuclear fusion reaction long enough to harness its energy. Using deep learning algorithms and a Tesla P100 GPU, university researchers at Portugal’s … [Read more...] about How Europe’s Researchers Are Using GPUs to Answer Science’s Biggest Questions
Marcia Dunn Associated Press Published 2:13 PM EDT Oct 3, 2018 Cape Canaveral, Fla. – Astronomers may have found the first moon outside our solar system. Two Columbia University researchers presented their tantalizing evidence Wednesday. Plenty of planets exist beyond our solar system, but a moon around one of those worlds has yet to be confirmed. The potential moon would be considerably larger than Earth – about the size of Neptune or Uranus. The planet it orbits is as big as mammoth Jupiter. This apparent super-size pairing of a gaseous moon and planet is 8,000 light-years away. Study authors Alex Teachey and David Kipping say they may be able to validate this particular candidate as early as next year, with more views from the Hubble Space Telescope. In the meantime, they’re encouraging other scientists to join in. Their findings appear in the journal Science Advances. … [Read more...] about Have astronomers found 1st moon outside our solar system?
If a premium Korean sedan drives through the California desert, does anyone hear it? The question circles my mind as I spin our Four Seasons Genesis G90’s Nappa-wrapped wheel away from Los Angeles and into the vastness of the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, a fitting move since I can barely hear any outside noises within the hushed cabin.Between the murdered-out G-Wagens and chrome-wrapped i8s, L.A. car culture can be an oppressive place for reflection. So for better or worse, I’m settled into a 22-way adjustable driver’s seat for a 2,000-mile quest to unravel the riddle of a certain $71,575 Genesis G90 3.3T AWD. Departing the city’s automotive battle royal is the most efficient way to strip away those twisted metrics and evaluate a vehicle for its merit, not its pretense. Context is vital. When viewed against the better-than-ever Mercedes-Benz S-Classes, BMW 7 Series, and Lexus LS 500s of the world, the oh-so-gray G90’s derivative styling wields all the … [Read more...] about A Trip Through the California Desert in Our 2017 Genesis G90
Current transportation systems are rife with problems that can lead to global warming, environmental degradation, health implications, and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Indeed, traditional modes of transportation that depend on fossil fuels contributed to 27% of overall GHG emissions in 2017, according to the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Sometimes the most important stories about green transportation and climate change aren’t as glamorous, sexy, or intriguing as those about fast cars or exclusive automotive auctions — but they may be more important than those that make the media headlines. So, for this edition of the “Gas2 Week in Review,” we’ll move from new data on transportation and climate change to stories about how a couple of companies are investing today in a vision of a zero-emissions future tomorrow. A Primer on Greenhouse Gas Emissions GHG emissions inventories identify and quantify a country’s primary … [Read more...] about Gas2 Week in Review, February 25: Green Transportation Is Essential and Often Complicated
