Current problem in interplanetary travel: Getting out of the planetary plane. Current attempted solution: Brute force. But no rocket so far is able to reach escape velocity and orbit the sun the other way to the plane. - Proposing a solution: Swinging. Letting rocket's own inertia keep the speed until it starts falling, then turning around and accelerating for a while, and repeat. Proposing a better solution: Swinging behind a planet, to draw acceleration from its gravity, practically accelerating without fuel. Gravitational assist in this way is more complicated than along interplanetary plane where it is simply freefall to the destination. - Space is the next frontier of our flesh civilization, but the #FractalUniverseRevolution is the final frontier for all physics-based lifeforms!

https://www.tomshardware.com/news/ibm-quantum-computer-computing-53-qubit,40430.html The new computer will be the largest commercially available quantum computer yet when it's made available in mid October. It comes with more than twice as many qubits (53 total) than its previous generation (20 qubits) and supposedly with exponentially higher performance. IBM is not a fan of just chasing higher qubit counts, so they came up with their “quantum volume” formula, which takes into account both the number of qubits And the error rate. A high qubit number doesn’t mean too much unless the error rate is sufficiently small. But also, there is not much that can be done with a quantum computer that has merely a handful of qubits and zero errors. Both high number of qubits and low error rate are needed, and both of these metrics will get even larger improvements in the coming years, as we go from practical applications to changing history.

Tiny, circuit-like, PSU of up to 250W, 12V input, 94% conversion efficiency, $30. https://www.tomshardware.com/news/picobox-tiny-psu,40425.html Operates at 12V input exclusively, which means it needs a transformer to take charge from the wall socket, but also means you can hook it directly to your UPS, to your battery, having a huge chemical dampener to keep voltages safe, and cutting the middle-device of using stored energy for the computer for much better efficiency in case of power loss than any 'transform out, transform in' of regular UPS to PSU connection.

https://www.tomshardware.com/news/cerebras-wafer-scale-engine-department-of-energy-supercomputer-wse,40416.html A massive processor of 42,225 square millimeters, the largest in the world, with 1.2 trillion transistors at 16nm process, which is 56 times larger than the world's largest GPU (815mm2 with 21.1 billion transistors). The chip has 40,000 AI-processing cores and 18 GB of memory on-chip with up to 9 PBps bandwidth, and plenty of redundancy so the processor can keep working even if a bunch of cores or connections fail. Partnership with USA's 'Department of Energy' will help proliferation of the processor and development of software to best use it. Rem, Lik, Sub, chat, wir, #FUR mor'
