NASA reported that the Hubble telescope made a spectacular spiral galaxy photography NGC 2903, part of the constellation Leo, 30 million light-years away from Earth.
About 75 percent of the galaxies in space are spiral. Milky Way has been reclassified into a spiral galaxy with a central part and spiral star-filled stars, as well as cosmic dust and gases.
The focus of NASA is currently focused on black holes, and spiral galaxies contain black holes that are once near the center. Hubble's research on spiral galaxies aims to uncover the connection between black holes and local galaxies.
Preparations for a huge asteroid called "The God of Chaos" have already begun, and according to NASA's calculations, it should pass near the Earth in ten years from now.
On April 13, 2029, people in the sky will be able to spot a small dot light passing over them, which will become brighter and faster with each passing moment. She will travel so fast that she will spend the entire length of the moon in just one minute and be bright as the stars in the sky.
It is an asteroid whose official name is Apophis, after the Egyptian god of chaos. The asteroid has a width of 340 meters and is one of the largest that ever passed near the Earth. NASA has already begun preparing for its arrival, which will be harmless as Apophis will pass to 30,000 kilometers from Earth.
The Apophis will pass far enough from Earth to cause damage to our planet, and close enough for NASA scientists to extract data from it. So far, NASA had a chance to observe smaller asteroids from a closer distance but never before had a larger asteroid been detected at this distance.
"The advent of Apophis in 2029 will be an incredible opportunity for science. We will observe the asteroid with optical telescopes and radars. Through the radars, we will be able to clearly see the surface of the asteroid, "said Marina Brozovic, a radar explorer and scientist at NASA.
The asteroid will be visible to the naked eye of the night sky above the Southern Hemisphere, passing through the east to the west coast of Australia. Then, Apophis will travel along the Earth, through the Indian Ocean to the United States. It will most likely come closer to Earth when it flies over the Atlantic Ocean, which will fly in just one hour.
The latest data from the space agency NASA confirm that the universe is spreading much faster than previously thought.
The Hubble Space Telescope has shown that the universe is about nine percent faster than astronomers have assumed, based on their calculations for the space movement that began shortly after the Great Explosion.
This mismatched growth has now reached a point that can not be ruled out as a coincidence. That's not what we expected, said Adam Rice, Nobel Prize winner and prominent professor of physics and astronomy at Johns Hopkins University.
The speed of expansion of the universe, known as the Hubble constant, is a central part of the physics and understanding of the universe. The new research confirms that detailed work is needed to explain the growth of the universe.
Rice points out that it is now clear that the speed of expansion was not in line with what they expected.
One is measuring how fast the universe is spreading today, and another is a prediction based on physics from previous measurements, Rice pointed out.
He did not explain why there is an accelerated expansion of the universe.
Some of the users who tested the new Samsung Galaxy Fold in a few days reported problems. Problems might have been avoided if Samsung had better explanations for users.
Problems with the new Galaxy Fold had a Verge journalist who had the opportunity to see the phone before others. Unfortunately, the likely reason for screen erosion is not enough to clear explanation. The journalist removed the "screen guard" of the device. Unfortunately, on this display, the protection cannot be removed.
Samsung has announced that it is already starting to check which is the cause of the malfunction in the devices, although the start of the sale is still scheduled for April 26.
"Several people who were checking reported that after removing the upper screen protection, there was damage to the screen. The main display of the Galaxy Fold must have protection, and it is part of the display structure. Removing the protection or adding adhesives can cause damage. We will surely ensure that this information is clearly visible to users, "Samsung told the Wall Street Journal.
It seems that the biggest problem with the phone is by removing the security, but not all have this malfunction on the device. The CNBC is left on the phone, but the screen of the phone, or rather the left side, flashes continuously.
Samsung will not delay the sale of the phone, but it seems that before the start, they will have to answer the question "What causes the Galaxy Fold screen?" Not so long ago the company had a fiasco with the release of the Galaxy Note 7. Then, due to the flammability of the battery, Samsung withdrew all the phones in this series.
During the expedition of the Antarctic, a team of scientists discovered a fossilized footprint of a dinosaur foot, about 200 million years old.
It is about an imprint left by an animal from the group of archosaurs, says the German Federal Institute for Geoscience and Natural Resources from Hanover. For the time being, it is not known exactly for what kind of dinosaur it is.
Scientists have discovered the fingerprint in 2016, but their findings have only been recently published in Polar Research. In addition to bones, scientists have also discovered fossil forest residues of about 1,700 kilometers from the South Pole.
"It shows that Antarctica about 200 million years ago was not an ice continent as it is today," says expedition leader Andreas Laufer.
If you want to travel, you must be sure that you will be able to establish communication anywhere in the world. Inspired by this issue, Viber has introduced a new mobile application service that will be particularly useful for people who travel a lot.
The new feature of Viber will allow users to choose a local phone number from the country where they reside and through it to receive phone calls and messages at local rates.
The Viber Local Number service is currently only available in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. In fact, they can be used by all Viber users, but it is only available with phone numbers from these three countries. In the future, more countries will be added to the circle where this service is available.
Through the local Viber number, users will be able to receive an unlimited number of calls and SMS, which will be available to them at the rates provided by local operators.
For those who travel frequently, the Viber Local Number service is more than welcome, as it will make it easier for them to work in the travel planning process, booking hotels and lodgings, as well as other travel related obligations.

The US space exploration company, SpaceX, successfully completed the first operational mission for the triple landing of the three Falcon Heavy rockets, which are considered the most powerful rockets on Earth.
Two of the rockets landed on the platform of the Cape Canaveral Space Center in Florida, and the third was grounded on the SpaceX's private platform in the Atlantic Ocean.
For the first time in its history, SpaceX managed to put all three rockets on Earth. When Falcon Heavy missiles first flew in February last year, only two of them returned to Earth full and undamaged.
The problem was that one of them could not activate all three engines because there was not enough fuel. Instead of landing on the water platform, the rocket dived into the ocean at a speed of 480 kilometers per hour.
However, SpaceX has now succeeded in landing all three rockets whose advanced and improved versions are known as Block 5. This version of the spacecraft is made for reuse, which facilitates the SpaceX mission because the company can land them and then land them sent in new missions.
The first attempt to land a Falcon Heavy rocket occurred in 2015 when the rocket exploded on the landing platform. After that, SpaceX had several more attempts before it finally managed to land first, then three rockets at once.
Last year, Facebook spent $ 22 million on the safety of Mark Zuckerberg, CNN reports.
Zuckerberg, like many other wealthy executives, receives a salary of $ 1 a year. Last year, he did not receive any bonuses or rewards for the shares.
However, due to the increased security costs of the founder of Facebook and his family, the total payment is $ 22.6 million and is $ 9.1 million higher than the previous year.
Zuckerberg also spent $ 2.6 million on private jet costs, which the company says is also part of its security.
Facebook says the price has risen partly as a result of specific threats to Zuckerberg, as Facebook has recently faced a series of scandals when it comes to the privacy of users on this social network.
A few years ago, we talked about the tremendous advantages of the tenth version of the MiniTool Partition Wizard. This tool is a significant upgrade of the integrated tool in the Windows operating system. With MiniTool Partition, you can create, cancel, delete, copy, or modify partitions, and clone or convert discs. The benefits do not stop there and will not disappoint you if you want to check if there is a problem with a drive, perform tests, scan for lost or invalid partitions, and more.
The reason why we are writing again for the MiniTool Partition Wizard is that the eleventh version is significantly better than the previous one, both in terms of appearance and efficiency.
First, the MiniTool Partition Wizard Free 11 features a Disk Benchmark, a useful tool for gaining insight into your drive's performance by performing numerous tests for writing and reading data. The Space Analyzer tool will be found if you want to find out what the situation with your free space is and what files endanger its existence. Namely, start the scanning process and you will soon find out which files, folders, and applications use the most space.
These and all previous features are ready for activation through a visual-refreshed interface, behind which the hood is hidden and numerous bug fixes and irregularities that make it significantly more optimized for working in Windows 10 environment.
The MiniTool Partition Wizard is delivered in a free and billing version. For most users, the free version and how the work will end, but if you want more opportunities for dealing with lost partitions, as well as conversion tools, a one-time payment of $ 60 is required. Also, beware of the installation that you accept. If you choose, the installation package will attempt to impose unwanted, additional software tools.

Borderlands 3 has been announced and, so, does not move too far from the pre-determined template. For many, this is an extremely good thing, and the official trailer has managed to intrigue most fans.
As you can expect, Borderlands 3 continues the rogue shooting adventures not only of Pandora but also of several other worlds, with tons and tons of weapons. On this occasion, however, we will not talk about gameplay mechanics, but rather focus on the release of the game.
Borderlands 3 is released on September 13th. The date was already assumed by the few traces left with the first trailer, and the things fit perfectly with the celebration of the tenth anniversary of the first Borderlands game. Totally anticipated, the third game will have a seasonal pass. Traditionally, as with previous games, the seasonal pass will have four add-ons that will expand the campaign with a new story, weapons, and locations. Unconventional for this series, the troika will be the first game that will not be released on Steam. With the desire to attract as many profits as possible, Gearbox decided to sell the game exclusively to the Epic Store in half a year. Therefore, Borderlands 3 will appear on Steam until spring 2020.
At Epic Store, the basic version of Borderlands 3 will be sold for $ 60. For $ 20 more, you have a Deluxe edition available, and for $ 100 you get the Super Deluxe edition. Both editions contain cosmetic values, as well as amplifiers for experiential points and elements. Super Deluxe is the version that comes with the seasonal pass. After exiting the game, the price of this edition will jump from 100 to 120 dollars. The four successive accessories will be sold well, but the price for such a thing is not yet defined.
Gearbox plans to offer an even more expensive edition. Diamond Loot Chest Collector's Edition costs $ 250 incredible, and besides all content from the Super Deluxe edition, there are several physical items available, such as a replica of a precious chest, ten figures with the game characters, a model from the Sanctuary 3 ship, four pendants keys, map, posters, and a box.
Intel introduced a new processor for the Xeon Platinum 9200 server. It is a true beast that comes with 56 physical and 112 virtual cores. The company announces that this processor is intended for users with the need for the highest performance. The new processors are part of Intel's second-generation scalable processors.
The CPU is of course intended for servers and data centers. This is the first processor with Cascade Lake architecture. Besides the number of cores, the new processor comes with Optane support, support for faster DRAM, new configurations and better specialization for different processors from the series. In addition to these processors, hardware support has been made to reduce the dangers of Specter and Meltdown. With this even though Intel did not change the micro-architecture compared to the previous generation, however, with greater security and better focus on implementation, Intel offers better processors in this series, says AnandTech.
Xeon 9200 comes with 1 MB L2 cache per core; maximum 38.5 MB L3 cache memory; support for DDR4-2933 with support up to 1 TB; Optane provides a speed of 45 TB per core. Additionally, the CPU has a power of 400 W. Some rumors say that processors could be on sale by Computex. The Xeon 9200 series has several processors:
Global research reveals how long gamers spend playing games. The company Limelight Networks conducted a survey that included at least 8 countries worldwide and released interesting results.
In the state of online gaming document, the company finds that the game is mostly spent by Germans and that people in Singapore, believe it or not, prefer eSport more than traditional sports.
More than 4,500 video game players from Germany, France, India, Japan, Singapore, Italy, the United Kingdom, and the United States participated in the research. All participants were older than 18 years old and in common, at least once a week, they spend more hours playing.
The survey reveals that the average player spends about 7.11 hours a day playing games. The Germans spend most of their time playing around an hour longer than the average player in this research. Then follow Americans and residents of Singapore. According to the data, gamers are older than 26 years and younger than 35 years, on average 8.21 hours.
Interesting is the fact that gamers want to watch other players while playing games and transfer it through Twitch or YouTube and through Facebook Live. 66 percent of respondents in Singapore regularly monitor online gaming for other players around the world. In the same country, eSport is popular with traditional sports, and nearly 40 percent of respondents want to engage in gaming professionally.
In the last few years, gaming companies have made spines in which players can play with their friends without any restrictions. The latest title of this type is "Wolfenstein: Youngblood".
Presented at the E3 fair, this spin-off of the popular franchise puts the player in the role of Blazkovich's daughter, who continues the fight against the Nazis in the most brutal possible way.
The madness after the Battle Royale games never stops. PUBG and Fortnite are not only still on the throne, but new games also tirelessly try to climb to the top and share a narrow place. No one expected Apex Legend. They came quietly, but they already managed to earn nearly $ 100 million. The dust from such a thing has not yet come off, and Dice began to tease with a unique attempt on the Battle Royale mode in Battlefield 5.
As you can see from the top demo, the game starts in a way that is characteristic of the BT genre. Everything falls from the sky and forces gather together to demand weapons and groceries. The circle narrows on a map that is estimated to be 10 times the largest map in Battlefield V - Hamada. Battle Royale in Battlefield 5 gives us the impression of a beautiful and extremely complex experience in which the vehicles are on the top of the cake. Vehicles play an enormous role, especially when you take into account the destructiveness of the buildings you are hiding. Unlike most BR games, BV's Firestorm mode will be constantly encouraged by the movement because one who has a tank can easily destroy buildings and everything that dares to hide there. Interestingly, you will be able to play with any of the soldiers of the standard network modes, but there will be no available capabilities that are unique to each class, but only their appearance.
In BR, the Dice mode is played in teams of four versus a total of 64 players. In addition to 17 vehicles that sow full destruction or give quick access from point A to point B, the infantry will easily find anti-tank artillery. On a huge map, there will be several secondary tasks that, if you do, you will get much better prey.
Battlefield 5 Firestorm is out, but not free. To play it, you need to have the basic Battlefield 5 game.
