China's New Space Reactor 'Will Be 100 Times More Powerful Than a Similar Device NASA Plans To Put on the Surface of the Moon by 2030'

Hmmmmmm writes: China is developing a powerful nuclear reactor for its moon and Mars missions, according to researchers involved in the project. The reactor can generate one megawatt of electric power, 100 times more powerful than a similar device Nasa plans to put on the surface of the moon by 2030. The project was launched with funding from the central government in 2019. Although technical details and the launch date were not revealed, the engineering design of a prototype machine was complet...

Have Scientists Disproven Google's Quantum Supremacy Claim?

Slashdot reader AltMachine writes: In October 2019, Google said its Sycamore processor was the first to achieve quantum supremacy by completing a task in three minutes and 20 seconds that would have taken the best classical supercomputer, IBM's Summit, 10,000 years. That claim — particularly how Google scientists arrived at the "10,000 years" conclusion — has been questioned by some researchers, but the counterclaim itself was not definitive. Now though, in a paper to be submitted to a scienti...

China brought the first moon rocks back to Earth in 45 years. They hint at mysterious volcanic eruptions.

Lunar samples from the Chang'e-5 mission at the Institute of Geology and Geophysics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing, October 15, 2021. Jin Liwang/Xinhua/Getty Images China's Chang'e-5 mission brought rocks from the moon to Earth for the first time in 45 years. The rock samples are the remnants of ancient lava flows and date back 2 billion years. That's nearly 1 billion years later than scientists thought the moon could have had volcanic eruptions. Volcanoes on...

Earth tipped over on its side 84 million years ago and then righted itself, new study finds

A photo of Earth taken by NASA's Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC). Reuters/NASA Earth tipped over on its side and back between 79 million and 86 million years ago, a study shows. The planet tilted by 12 degrees - which would've moved New York City to where Florida is right now. Earth's crust can shift like this depending on how weight is distributed across planet's surface. See more stories on Insider's business page. If you'd been able to stare at Earth f...

Aluminum may affect climate change by increasing ocean's carbon sink capacity

Researchers from the South China Sea Institute of Oceanology (SCSIO) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and their collaborators found that adding a small amount of aluminum to achieve concentrations in the 10x nanomolar range can increase the net fixation of CO2 by marine diatoms and decrease their decomposition, thus improving the ocean's ability to absorb CO2 and sequester carbon at deep ocean depths.
