A close-up of Jupiter and Saturn through the lens of a probe orbiting the Moon

While many amateur astronomers have succeeded in making far better images of the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn from the surface of our planet than what you will see in a moment, this project is extraordinary in itself. We are talking about a probe that was designed to photograph and study the surface of the moon, and not to distant objects traversing the solar system.

We haven't seen such a well-preserved Ice Age wolf yet

The mummified little she-wolf - in perfect condition - was discovered by people involved in gold mining in Canada in 2016, but only now have we learned the secrets it holds. \u201cHe's the most complete Ice Age wolf we've ever found. All her soft tissues, her hair, her skin, and even her tiny nose are there. It's just complete. And that's very rare, explains study author Julie Meachen of Des Moines University. The specimen underwent a number of highly detailed analyzes, including radiocarbon dating, DNA sampling, and measurements of oxygen isotope levels. Thanks to this, we know exactly when the puppy died, and we know its age at the time of death, which was only 7 weeks.

He criticized the government and disappeared. Where is the Chinese billionaire and founder of Alibaba?

It all started when Jack Ma missed the November talent show he had funded himself - he was replaced by another representative of Alibaba, and a photo of the company's founder disappeared from the show.

Local legislators initiated proceedings in connection with Alibaba's alleged practices violating antitrust law, and moreover introduced provisions blocking the Ant Group's IPO, i.e. Jacek Ma's empire, which amounted to approx. USD 37 million (in the backstage, it is said that including the Chinese president himself).

A small chip instead of a bariatric surgery? So now we will fight obesity

For some people, gastric reduction surgery has so far been the only chance to reduce weight and recover, which is why many people underwent it, although convalescence is not easy and pleasant. Patients are forced to introduce new products to their diet very slowly and carefully (which takes place in five stages), as well as be careful about the amount of food consumed, because initially one meal cannot contain more than 1/4 of a cup with a volume of approx. 150 ml! Moreover, the operation itself is a very serious procedure that carries many risk factors, so scientists are working on an experimental alternative that can produce similar effects in an easier way.

Mobileye from Intel is growing fast. Tesla has cause for concern?

We regularly hear about successive successful tests of autonomous cars in various cities around the world, as well as new functionalities of Tesla brand vehicles, which are becoming more and more independent with each update. However, it seems that the Elon Musk concern must be careful, because Intel's Mobileye brand is growing in strength and announces technologies that may slightly confuse the market, and eventually even change the balance of power in the industry. Interestingly, although companies are their greatest competitors, they have adopted completely different tactics (mainly in terms of recognizing and reacting cars to obstacles on the road) and investment models, which makes their competition even more interesting.
