How Would We Get Over Forty Thousand SpaceX Starships

The SpaceX Starship will be fully reusable and could be used for point to point transportation of cargo and people on Earth, flights to space and as habitats in space. There are 25,000 passenger planes for moving people and cargo. There are another 14000 military jets. Passenger travel around the world will triple the demand…

South Korea Makes Progress to Lithium-Oxygen Batteries With Ten Times Higher Energy Densities

Researchers have presented a novel electrode material for advanced energy storage device that is directly charged with oxygen from the air. Professor Jeung Ku Kang’s team synthesized and preserved the sub-nanometric particles of atomic cluster sizes at high mass loadings within metal-organic frameworks (MOF) by controlling the behavior of reactants at the molecular level. This…

September 15 Tentative Date for Tesla Battery Day

Tesla Battery is September 15. Tesla will show off its own battery cell production line. Tesla will likely announce: * longer life-cycle the million-mile batteries * lower-cost batteries and probably lower price cars * the new battery production will likely have implementation of some Maxwell dry cell battery technology * higher charging capacity rate Tentative…

The Singularity Will Not Be a Problem

There are concerns that a Technological Singularity and Artificial General Super Intelligence (AGSI) will change the rate of progress goes beyond human comprehension. There are concerns that humans will be dominated and be at the mercy of true artificial superintelligence. I will say that things are not on track for key details of AI becoming…

Discovery of Dark Matter or Tritium Contamination

Xenon Experiments have detected a bunch of energy events in the 1-7 kilovolt data, which could be an indication of dark matter or contamination of their experiments. There are three possibilities for the readings: It could be axions which are particles that theoretically make up dark matter; It could be neutrinos which are particles that…

Artificial Intelligence is Able to Code Python

OpenAI created a language generator. They trained it on Github code. It used unsupervisored learning to learn to generate python code. Software code generators have been around for over fifty years. It is unclear how capable and flexible the new deep learning code generators are and will become. OpenAI previously created language generators to write…
