Headline is a little misleading, but a guy found that there's some old credits in a BMP file from Windows 1.0
https://www.pcgamer.com/this-windows-10-easter-egg-managed-to-stay-hidden-for-nearly-37-years/

>Brooks discovered the secret, a credits list of Windows developers and a "congratulations" message, buried in the data of a smiley face bitmap file that came with the OS. The data for the credits was encrypted, and according to Brooks, the tools he needed to extract the data didn't even exist at the time of the OS' release.

The SEGA arcade in Akihabara is now rebranded "GiGO", marking the end of the SEGA arcades.

"Sega revealed that it would be selling the remaining 14.9 percent of the shares in its arcade business to Genda back in January. Sega had previously sold 85.1 percent of these to Genda in 2020 over concerns that customers would be avoiding its venues on account of the global pandemic. Genda has been planning to rebrand all of its newly acquired arcades to GiGO since the sale. The process began with its locations in Tokyo."

Interesting. I was watching a video recently about how the US has long since fallen out of scientific preeminence with regards to particle physics, notably conceding the research lead to Europe. One major failure was the government botching the Superconducting Super Collider project due to government expenditure cuts under Reagan massively hampering the agencies ability to function, as well as inter-governmental bureaucracy killing things further. Ultimately, the project was a reaction to CERN discovering the W and Z bosons.

That said, it's been very interesting that in the last few years FermiLab has been playing a more prominent role. Just last year FermiLab was at the center of a widely reported Muon G-2 experiment which had experimental results that disagreed with the predicted results. And now they're at it again with potentially showing that the W Boson has a higher mass than expected.

I hope this trend of discovery continues. It's been too long that the US has been out of the limelight in scientific discovery. Hopefully this encourages more funding towards education and research at the very least.

 No.1478

>>1473
I dunno. The article seems really quite negative and dismissive of nuclear reactors while also playing up the potential dangers of having them in conflict areas.

I really hope nuclear gets more and more popular. There's been a small renaissance online of people recognizing how great of an energy source it is. I wish the same would happen for hydrogen vehicles... Lithium is just too expensive, polluting, unstable, and rare for it to be a practical replacement to fossil fuel powered vehicles. Meanwhile... there's a veritable limitless source of renewable energy that the Earth is blanketed in: water, which can easily (albeit energy intensively) be cracked into hydrogen and oxygen, and used for fuel which then harmlessly turns into water.

he presents himself like that for a reason, people in el salvador are tired of that two main political parties which represent the old military regimes and and old revolutionaries. The military regime party is what you would expect from that sort of thing but the revolutionary party have also become corrupt and too established to connect with their former base in addition to doing a bad job of stopping gang violence and actually making it worse with their iron fist approach.
Then this guy comes along and tells a nation disillusioned with democracy that he will do whatever it takes to get stuff done, he runs his political campaign through twitter, and he presents himself as a young hipster type. The strategy pays off and hes won a massive majority while also starting to show authoritarian tendencies, hes less a imageboard teen and more a classic latin american dictator in disguise.

About the New German tank, the Panther, there are quite a few interesting details about the Panther on the Rheinmetall website. Even a brochure.

It has an auto loader as well as many of the features that a new tank would want to have, all of the buzz words about things like being fully digitalised and able to connect to all kinds of networks and it has things like 'optimised shooter to sensor links' and the ability to command the tank from any of the four positions in the tank. Yes it still has 4 seats, one is for an optional specialist.

It's a bit lighter than a Leopard 2 at 59 tons, I found that a bit surprising, it's still a big tank and even if it has an auto loader it;s still got a big turret and it's covered in god knows what. Speaking of some of that god knows what, it has a Natter 7.62 weapons station which has all kinds of advanced targeting abilities, it's odd to have a .50 co ax but then a 7.62 RWS, though Rheinmetall do sell a .50 Natter as well so that could be used if it was wanted. It also has an inbuilt drone launcher which I suspect is a large driver behind keeping the fourth crewman.

Don't use magnets to wipe data off meteorites!
https://www.science.org/content/article/magnets-wipe-memories-meteorites-erasing-billion-year-old-data

>In a new study, Foteini Vervelidou, a planetary scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and her colleagues have documented the destructive power of the hand magnets, which are often made from rare-earth metals such as neodymium and are typically about 10,000 times stronger than Earth’s magnetic field. When brought within a few centimeters of a rock, the researchers found, the magnets overwrite vestigial fields contained in iron-based minerals such as magnetite and reset them to the higher strength and orientation of the magnet. In an instant, a unique view into the heart of distant rocky bodies can be erased. Black Beauty, for example, is the only known meteorite old enough to “remember” Mars’s magnetic field before it started to disappear about 4 billion years ago.
