This is the world’s most powerful rocket ever



Artemis 1 is the first stage of a series of missions designed to send astronauts back to the moon as part of NASA’s Artemis program.

Here’s what you should know about it

NASA is on a mission to return astronauts to the moon as part of the Artemis program.

Its inaugural Artemis I mission will be an uncrewed expedition around the moon and serve as practice for future missions to Mars.

‘’And it’s back to the Moon and then on to Mars.”

NASA administrator, Bill Nelson

Here’s everything else you need to know about Artemis 1

NASA’s mega moon rocket – the Space Launch System – is scheduled to lift off on August 29.

“Ladies and gentlemen, the world’s most powerful rocket ever right here.’’

NASA administrator, Bill Nelson

Sitting on top of the 322-foot-tall rocket is the Orion astronaut capsule.

It is designed to separate from the rocket in space, ferry humans toward the moon

and rendezvous with a separate spacecraft that will take astronauts to the lunar surface.

The Space Launch System-Orion cost $37 billion to develop, including ground systems.

For the Artemis 1 mission, the Orion capsule will launch atop the Space Launch System without any humans

and orbit the moon before returning to Earth 42 days later.

If all goes according to plan, subsequent Artemis missions will follow, sending astronauts around the moon and back.

Artemis I is a crucial, long-delayed demonstration trip to the moon for NASA.

The U.S. space agency hasn’t sent any humans to the moon since 1972, when Apollo 17 astronaut Eugene Cernan left the last footprints on the lunar surface.

“NASA’s Artemis program will pave the way for humanity’s giant leap, future missions to Mars. There’s no doubt that we are in a golden era of human space exploration, discovery and ingenuity in space, and it all begins with Artemis 1.”

Can new tech hires be sustained?



As technology companies continue to lay off staff, Australian research shows the future may be brighter

Australia has a target of delivering 1.2 million critical tech workers by 2030.

However, the sector has been battered by changes and layoffs since the pandemic came to light.

Kate Pounder is the CEO of the Tech Council of Australia, who said the pandemic changed the playbook for many companies across the sector.

“There is some evidence that there was a boom in job creation and company formation during the pandemic.”

The Tech Council of Australia recently revealed an 8 per cent increase in tech jobs last year.

It means Australia’s tech workforce is around 935,000.

“When there’s change in the labour market, you see people using that to start a business,” Ms Pounder said.

Despite the rapid layoffs across many major technology companies, Ms Pounder said for every job lost over the past quarter, 20 have been created.

“We are finding that the ease of people moving into jobs is getting a little better.

“It’s still challenging to find people in Australia, particularly for people in specialised roles,” she said.

Tech layoffs reach their highest point in over 20 years



There have been over 130,000 layoffs across the technology sector in the last five months

The technology sector was billed as the most exciting industry to work in.

Big offices, big dreams, big money were all part of the parcel for many companies attracting staff.

As many organisations caught onto the momentum of the pandemic, the same energy has not been particularly met on the other side.

Thousands of workers have since been laid off as the good times stopped rolling.

In fact, the technology sector’s layoffs are the highest since the dotcom bubble burst 22 years ago.

The BT Group is one of the latest companies cutting staff.

Fifty-five thousand have lost their jobs as part of a corporate restructure.

CEO Philip Jansen will freeze his £1.1 million salary until he retires, according to reports from Sky News.

The ground is also shifting as artificial intelligence takes hold and the economy worsens.

BT Group said it is laying off 11,000 staff because of the increased capacity for artificial intelligence in the workplace.

At the same time, companies like Apple and Goldman Sachs are among those restricting or banning the use of tools like ChatGPT amid privacy or data concerns.

Big tech crackdown on employees using ChatGPT



Apple and Samsung are among companies restricting or banning the use of ChatGPT

Some of the world’s largest technology companies, including Apple and Amazon have banned or restricted OpenAI’s ChatGPT.

The tool relies on artificial intelligence to produce responses to prompts entered by users.

However, major brands remain concerned around the privacy risks because of the data ChatGPT uses to improve its accuracy.

Samsung has previously reported employees unintentionally leaking confidential internal source code and meeting recordings through ChatGPT.

Meanwhile, Apple has banned the web-platform over concerns surrounding data leaks.
