I, implanted an artificial eyeball, but the company that made it went out of business
Terry Byland, as the first visually impaired person in the world to have bionic eye implants in both eyes, Terry plays the role of the spokesperson of Second Sight to some extent. Over the years, he has given media interviews, participated in industry conferences, and spoke eloquently about how Second Sight's products gave him a second life—and, of course, sincerity.However, the countdown to Terry's day of seeing the light of day has come. With Second Sight going bankrupt, the bionic eyes of Terry and more than 350 other visually impaired people have been left unattended and will soon become a pile of scrap metal in their bodies, and the terrifying darkness will soon come again.
Time crystals, romance until the end of the world
In July 2021, Google and a group of scientists used their own sycamore quantum processor to realize a 20-qubit time crystal, and published the research results in Nature. Philip Frey and Stephen Rachel have made another major breakthrough based on Google research, designing the largest time crystal to date. The significance of this achievement is that it demonstrates the ability of quantum computers to simulate complex systems, transforming theoretical models that can only exist in the minds of physicists into objective entities.
What impact will Tonga's volcanic eruption have on the global climate and economy?
An island submarine volcano in the South Pacific island kingdom of Tonga began to erupt violently, creating a large amount of ash and triggering a tsunami. Satellite observations show that volcanic ash mixed with gas rises over the Pacific Ocean, forming a mushroom cloud with a diameter of 400 to 500 kilometers, and the volcanic ash reaches a height of about 28 kilometers above the ground. The USGS believes it triggered an earthquake equivalent to a magnitude 5.8.
Lawrence Edward Larry Page
Larry Page was born in 1973 in a Jewish family in East Lansing, Michigan, USA. His father, Carl Vinson Page, a Michigan State University computer professor with a Ph.D. in computer science, and his mother, Gloria Page Also a computer professor at Michigan State University (MSU) and a Jewish.
Steven Paul Jobs
Jobs' biological father, Abdel Fattah John Chandry, was a Syrian-born immigrant who believed in Islam and his mother was a housewife. Grandfather was a self-made millionaire. Abdul Fattah Chandry studied at the American University of Beirut in Lebanon and then at the University of Wisconsin for a PhD in International Politics. He met Jobs' biological mother, Joanna Siebel, while working as a teaching assistant in a class. Joanna was born on a farm in Wisconsin into a Catholic family. Abdul Fattah Chandry wanted to marry Joanna Sieber, but Abdul Fattah Chandry was a Muslim, and Joanna's father was adamantly against the marriage. Unable to get married, Joanna finally had to go to San Francisco, California to give birth to Jobs, and through a midwifery doctor arranged to be brought up by Jobs' later adoptive father Paul Jobs and adoptive mother Clara Hargopian.
To prevent humans from repeating the extinction of dinosaurs, NASA will launch a "cannonball" at the asteroid
And on Nov. 24, NASA will launch a mission-critical satellite. The success or failure of this mission will determine whether the fate of dinosaurs will one day be staged on humans again in the future.
Two drops of water, a piece of paper, how to generate electricity for one hour?
Data from the United Nations University shows that in 2019, about 53.6 million tons of electronic products were discarded globally. It is expected that by 2030, this number will be as high as 74.7 million tons. If this trend cannot be reversed, by 2050, it will even reach 1.1 million tons. million tons.
Astronomers discover a dormant black hole outside the Milky Way for the first time!
First explain what a dormant black hole is. Black holes themselves do not emit light. Those detected in the Milky Way usually have a companion star, and they are in a binary system. A black hole in a binary system can form an accretion disk around the black hole by accreting material from its companion star. The accretion disk can generate radiation, and the energy of the radiation will be concentrated in the X-ray band. This type of accreted black hole binary is called a black hole X-ray binary. The famous black hole binary system, Cygnus X-1 (CygnusX-1) is a black hole massive X-ray binary star in the Milky Way that is accreting material from a companion star to form an accretion disk and emit X-ray radiation.
What is the use of Musk's Starlink plan?
Solve the problem: 1. Internet Access Problems in Remote Areas In remote areas, more than half of the world's population (hundreds of billions of people) have no access to the Internet. Another example is a ship sailing at sea, a plane in the sky, and a deserted area. These scenarios have a strong demand for Internet access. There are also means to access the Internet, but the cost is expensive and the Internet speed is slow. , the consumer experience is lacking. And StarLink was born for such a scenario. In the future, the price of StarLink's access equipment after mass production can be controlled at US$200, with a diameter of about 20-40 centimeters and a thickness of about 2-3 centimeters. So it can be easily deployed in cars, boats or planes and in homes.
When humanity perished, plastic still slumbered on the ocean floor！
After entering the 20th century, with the emergence of a class of materials with strong plasticity, a wide variety and superior performance, human life has undergone profound changes. This material is plastic. Our lives are inseparable from plastic products. The alarm clock that wakes you up in the morning, the earphones inserted into your ears during lunch break, the beautiful new clothes you buy... Plastic products are everywhere, and some people even say that the era we live in is "the era of plastic." ". However, while bringing us convenience, plastic also brings a serious pollution situation.
