Tesla’s Autopilot mistakes the Moon for a traffic light | Digital Trends Spanish

The owner of a Tesla noted that the vehicle's autopilot mistook the Moon for the yellow light of a traffic light. The user posted a video on Twitter where the failure during assisted driving is clearly seen. "Hey, Elon Musk, you might want your team to deal with how the Moon tricks the autopilot system," Jordan Nelson wrote on Twitter. "The vehicle believes that the Moon is a yellow traffic light and wanted to continue slowing down," he added. Hey @elonmusk you might want to have your team look into the moon tricking the autopilot system. The car thinks the moon is a yellow traffic light and wanted to keep slowing down. 🤦🏼 @Teslarati @teslaownersSV @TeslaJoy pic.twitter.com/6iPEsLAudD & mdash; Jordan Nelson (@JordanTeslaTech) July 23, 2021 The problem is that, according to the reg...

Aldrin’s helmet allows him to reconstruct what he saw on the Moon | Digital Trends Spanish

It is one of the most remembered images of the Apollo 11 mission. It was taken by Neil Armstrong and shows Buzz Aldrin on the surface of the Moon. Now, an artist managed to recreate what the astronaut was seeing at that time through the reflection in Aldrin's helmet. Michael Ranger is a visual effects artist and Reddit user. It was precisely on this platform that the professional published a 360-degree panorama from the astronaut's point of view. “What makes this process exciting for me is the fact that it is real. If I have any indication that something like this is false, my interest in it completely evaporates. This is great because it's real! ”Ranger explains. POT.The iconic image was taken in July 1969. It shows Aldrin standing next to the leg of the lunar module. In the recrea...

Orbit of the Moon could cause major floods in 2030 | Digital Trends Spanish

A future rise in sea level off the coast of the United States could not only be due to climate change, but also to certain swings in the orbit of the Moon, according to a new study published in Live Science. Rises in sea levels result in flooding that, in certain parts of the United States, occurs frequently two to three times a month. However, this could increase to more than a dozen for the next decade, due to the action exerted by the orbit of the Moon; According to the study, the next cycle in which the satellite will generate tidal increases begins in 2030. And if the sea level continues to rise due to climate change, along with the action of the lunar orbit, the tides could become a problem more than just annoying. UnsplashThe study authors believe that, if no action is taken, t...

China will send androids to Mars before an inhabited base | Digital Trends Spanish

The director of the China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology (CALT), Wang Xiaojun, revealed his country's plans for a future mission to Mars. The announcement was made at the Global Space Exploration Conference (GLEX 2021), where a three-step plan for the Asian giant was revealed; this would include the construction of bases in addition to the dispatch of manned landing missions. What will this plan consist of? In the primary stage, or the technology readiness phase, androids will be launched targeting sample return and exploration of a base site on Mars. The next will be a manned mission to the Red Planet and a base will be built on its surface. Meanwhile, the third stage will consist of trying to move a large-scale Earth-Mars cargo fleet. According to the academy, the schedule for...

This will be the lunar base that China and Russia want to build | Digital Trends Spanish

China and Russia have jointly presented their plans to reach the Moon. It is a kind of broken sheet of what missions both countries will carry out and which should result in the lifting of a permanent lunar base in 2035. The plan was presented during the GLEX congress on space exploration, where the agencies of the two nations have expressed their idea of ​​enabling a special enclosure for their astronauts to live on the Moon. The ambitious project is based on three phases, each with multiple collaborative missions between China and Russia, but it also gives the possibility to other nations that want to join this plan. The first phase of this project is the one that is being carried out now, with the study of the surface where the lunar base will be installed. The second is the constru...

Surprising find about Europa, Jupiter’s moon | Digital Trends Spanish

A study carried out by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory claims that Jupiter's moon Europa can glow in the dark. The experiments were able to show that the type of ice that covers the moon's surface glows under radiation, which could help determine the composition of its frozen plains and underground oceans. The scientists warned that as Europa orbits Jupiter, it receives a continuous charge of electrons and other particles from the planet, which is "bathed" in high-energy radiation. These particles hitting its surface would also allow the moon to glow in the dark. “If you imagine that you are standing in Europe and you look at the glow under your feet, the glow would be similar to if you were standing outside in the light of a full moon and then looking at the ground,” explains Mur...

9-year-old boy won NASA space toilet challenge | Digital Trends Spanish

A 9-year-old boy from Malaysia became the winner of the Lunar Loo Challenge, a particular NASA contest to find a new design for space toilets. "Going to the bathroom" in space has become a challenge for NASA and, therefore, has allocated millions of dollars for its manufacture. As it intends to send a manned mission to the Moon in 2024, the special agency needs a suitable solution for astronauts' bodily waste. And it seems that the idea of ​​Zy Shun Kang met the requirements that the US space agency was looking for. The boy's proposal surpassed nearly 900 applications from 85 countries submitted at the junior category. How the space toilet works The third-year elementary school student has designed technology that fits inside a spacesuit, creating a vacuum that sucks up liquid de...

They record the volcanic impact of a moon of Jupiter | Digital Trends Spanish

Images obtained by the Atacama Large Millimeter / submillimeter Array (ALMA) show for the first time the effect of volcanic activity on the atmosphere of Jupiter's moon Io. With 400 active volcanoes that expel sulfur gases, Io is the most volcanically active moon in our Solar System. Precisely, these gases stain it yellow, white, orange and red when they freeze on its surface. The atmosphere of Io can give us important information about the volcanic activity of this unique satellite, as well as its interior and everything that happens under its crust. In order to distinguish the processes that give rise to Io's atmosphere, a group of astronomers used ALMA to obtain images of the satellite as it passed inside and outside of Jupiter's shadow. "As it passes through Jupiter's shadow an...
