NASA’s newest space station crew is launched into orbit by SpaceX

Early on Thursday, Elon Musk’s rocket business SpaceX sent a four-person crew into orbit on its way to the International Space Station. Two NASA crew members were joined on board by a Russian cosmonaut and an astronaut from the United Arab Emirates.

At 12:34 a.m. EST (0534 GMT), the SpaceX launch vehicle, which consisted of a Falcon 9 rocket atop an autonomous Crew Dragon capsule dubbed Endeavour, blasted out from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida.

The 25-story-tall spaceship was seen soaring from the launch tower on a live NASA livestream as its nine Merlin engines roared to life in billowing clouds of vapour and a reddish fireball that illuminated the night sky before dawn.

The launch attempt was scrubbed early on Monday in the closing seconds of the countdown due to a stoppage in the flow of engine ignition fluid, which delayed the mission by 72 hours. According to NASA, the issue was resolved by changing the blocked filter and purging the system.

The rocket’s top stage sent the Crew Dragon into a first orbit about nine minutes after Thursday’s launch as it raced through space at a speed of more than 20 times the speed of sound. As this was going on, the reusable lower-stage Falcon booster returned to Earth on its own and made a successful landing on the “Just Follow the Instructions” recovery ship, which was cruising in the Atlantic.

If you enjoyed your flight, don’t forget to give us five stars,” a SpaceX mission control manager was overheard radioing to the crew only moments after the capsule entered orbit.

NASA astronaut Stephen Bowen, the crew’s commander, replied over the radio, saying, “We’d like to thank you for the excellent voyage to orbit today.”

Spotify Without Loss There May Be A New Pro Subscription Plan Available For Hi-Fi Music: Learn More

Spotify has been touting its lossless music benefits for a long time, and individuals are still holding up to see it made official. It appears that day is not as distant absent presently, at least going by the most recent bits of gossip.

The company seems to include an unused Music Master membership that will offer the much-awaited lossless sound quality along with other highlights. Be that as it may, the music professional is impossible to come by cheap; in reality, individuals will be made to pay more than what the stage charges for its normal premium version.

The Music Master arrangement from Spotify is likely to offer superior sound quality than what Apple Music clients get, though that one is a portion of their standard arrangement. Spotify may offer its substance in Hi-Fi quality for podcasts as well, which was proposed in 2023.

The modern subtle elements, plus conversation, are approximately extraordinarily wired, and remote earphones support upgraded highlights. You might also get the alternative of mash-up and altered tracks, which is interesting. But the benefits are impossible to conclude with highlights like Sound Experiences, Earphone Tuner, Library Professional, Playlist Professional, and Studio Sound; moreover, they seem to be included in the master arrangement, as we had said prior.

This unreleased arrangement seems to be a curious expansion, particularly if Spotify can meet the requests for which it is going to charge a premium. The most recent report does not discuss the conceivable Music Master cost, but prior, we had seen the Premium arrangement recorded with a cost of $19.99 (approximately Rs 1600) per month, which, as per the subtle elements shared, has a parcel of unused highlights that the stage considers merits a higher cost tag. At this month-to-month cost, individuals might never feel persuaded about the highlights on offer, and that may be one huge reason why Spotify has postponed its accessibility for so long.

Elon Musk Plans AI Candidate Winning US Elections in 2032

Billionaire Elon Musk stated that he thinks a candidate using artificial intelligence (AI) might run for president of the United States in 2032. In 2024, who will be the President of the United States? was a question posed to Elon Musk during a conversation during the 10th annual Breakthrough Prize presentation. The CEO of Tesla then laughed heartily and answered, “Who do you think will win the White House in 2032? What kind of artificial intelligence? Diffusion or transformers?”

Elon Musk previously stated that “if AI is smart enough, it could undermine democracy” about the impact of AI on elections. He also said that artificial intelligence (AI) might surpass human intelligence by 2026 and that the availability of electricity would limit technological advancements. “I think it’s probably next year, within two years,” he stated, defining AGI (artificial general intelligence) as intelligence greater than that of the smartest human. The billionaire further claimed that a shortage of processors is impeding the training of Elon Musk’s AI project, xAI’s Grok 2, which was unveiled as a competitor to OpenAI’s ChatGPT.
