Scientists push for NASA to explore Uranus



Scientists are pushing for more trips to space saying that missions to Uranus need to be prioritised

The planet is known as an “ice giant” and is the seventh in our Solar System only having been visited once before in 1986.

Researchers are calling for the US space agency NASA to conduct an in-depth study of Uranus to provide a better idea of similarly sized objects around other stars.

The US National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine made the recommendation known as a “Decadal survey”.

The document is a summary of what scientific questions the American Research Community thinks are important and need to be focused on.

NASA has abided by these recommendations previously.

The last survey asked for a rock-collection mission to Mars and a mission to Jupiter and its moon Europa – both of which are being completed.

Scientists have been calling for further exploration of Uranus of Neptune since the last missions were made on the Voyager-2 spacecraft.

With more planets being discovered around other stars the need for these missions is growing.

Researchers have emphasised that it is still unclear as to how planets the size of Uranus form.

More research is needed to understand “how a world can start to grow and grow and not just carry on to become Jupiter-mass in size”.

Big tech companies are struggling in the markets this quarter as interest rates rise to battle inflation

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has devalued tech stocks causing further supply chain disruptions and sending the broad S&P 500 index down about 5 per cent.

Rising interest rates triggered more severe plummets with the S&P dropping another 16 per cent and the Nasdaq Composite index by 22 per cent.

Tesla’s stock took a huge hit sinking to nearly 38 per cent its largest decline since 2010.

Amazon saw similar results falling by 35 per cent the most in over 20 years.

Google to pay millions to app developers



App developers are accusing Google of tempting users into making in-app purchases.

The lawsuit relates to money that was made by app creators for Android smartphones.

The lawsuit was filed in a San Francisco court, where the 48,000 app developers are believed to have been affected.

“Following our win against Apple for similar conduct, we think this pair of settlements sends a strong message to big tech: the law is watching, and even the most powerful companies in the world are accountable when they stifle competition.”

Steve Berman, ATTORNEY FOR the Android developers.

Google says the settlement’s funds will support developers who have made less than USD $2 million in revenue between 2016 and 2021.

“A vast majority of U.S. developers who earned revenue through Google Play will be eligible to receive money from this fund, if they choose,” the company says.

Google says it will charge developers a 15 per cent commission on their first million in revenue.

The court is yet to approve the proposed settlement.
