Crypto’s Next Big Thing: Decentralized Finance Takes On Wall Street

Posted by in categories: bitcoin, business, cryptocurrencies, finance, internet, space

What would a world without banks look like? The answer may lie in decentralized finance.

Decentralized finance is an emerging ecosystem of financial applications and protocols built on blockchain technology with programmable capabilities, such as ethereum and solana. The transactions get executed automatically through smart contracts on the blockchain, which includes the agreement of the deal.

Space Force grappling with aging infrastructure used to operate satellites

Posted by in categories: government, military, satellites

WASHINGTON — The ground stations and tracking antennas the U.S. military relies on to communicate with its satellites — known as the Satellite Control Network, or SCN — are decades old and short of the capacity needed to keep up with the projected growth in space activities.

There are seven SCN sites located in the United States and around the world. About 15 large dish antennas at these sites command more than 190 military and government satellites in multiple orbits.

“Certainly the Satellite Control Network is a venerable system that’s been around for a long time. So we have multiple efforts ongoing to ensure that it’s ready for the future that we now find ourselves in,” Lt. Gen. Stephen Whiting, commander of the U.S. Space Operations Command, said last month at the 36th Space Symposium.

Layered Graphene with a Twist Displays Unique Quantum Confinement Effects in 2-D

Posted by in categories: computing, particle physics, quantum physics

Understanding how electrons move in 2-D layered material systems could lead to advances in quantum computing and communication.

Scientists studying two different configurations of bilayer graphene —the two-dimensional (2-D), atom.

An atom is the smallest component of an element. It is made up of protons and neutrons within the nucleus, and electrons circling the nucleus.

Elon Musk pledges $50 million to Inspiration4 fundraiser for St. Jude, exceeding $200 million goal

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, Elon Musk, space travel

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk helped achieve the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital fundraising goal of the Inspiration4 spaceflight, just hours after his company returned the crew from orbit.

The main goal of the Inspiration4 mission, which launched on Wednesday and splashed down on Saturday, was to raise $200 million for St. Jude.

Inspiration4 commander Jared Isaacman, a billionaire entrepreneur who purchased the flight from SpaceX, donated $100 million personally to St. Jude. The Inspiration4 mission had raised another $60.2 million in donations, before Musk pledged to contribute $50 million himself – pushing the campaign’s total raised to more than $210 million.
