Brightest and fastest-growing: astronomers identify record-breaking quasar



Using the European Southern Observatory’s (ESO) Very Large Telescope (VLT), astronomers have characterised a bright quasar, finding it to be not only the brightest of its kind, but also the most luminous object ever observed. Quasars are the bright cores of distant galaxies and they are powered by supermassive black holes. The black hole in this record-breaking quasar is growing in mass by the equivalent of one Sun per day, making it the fastest-growing black hole to date. The black holes powering quasars collect matter from their surroundings in a process so energetic that it emits vast amounts of light. So much so that quasars are some of the brightest objects in our sky, meaning even distant ones are visible from Earth. As a general rule, the most luminous quasars indicate the fastest-growing supermassive black holes. “We have discovered the fastest-growing black hole known to date. It has a mass of 17 billion Suns, and eats just over a Sun per day. This makes it the most luminous object in the known Universe,” says Christian Wolf, an astronomer at the Australian National University (ANU) and lead author of the study published today in Nature Astronomy. The quasar, called J0529-4351, is so far away from Earth that its light took over 12 billion years to reach us. The matter being pulled in toward this black hole, in the form of a disc, emits so much energy that J0529-4351 is over 500 trillion times more luminous than the Sun [1]. “All this light comes from a hot accretion disc that measures seven light-years in diameter — this must be the largest accretion disc in the Universe," says ANU PhD student and co-author Samuel Lai. Seven light-years is about 15 000 times the distance from the Sun to the orbit of Neptune. And, remarkably, this record-breaking quasar was hiding in plain sight. “It is a surprise that it has remained unknown until today, when we already know about a million less impressive quasars. It has literally been staring us in the face until now,” says co-author Christopher Onken, an astronomer at ANU. He added that this object showed up in images from the ESO Schmidt Southern Sky Survey dating back to 1980, but it was not recognised as a quasar until decades later. Finding quasars requires precise observational data from large areas of the sky. The resulting datasets are so large, researchers often use machine-learning models to analyse them and tell quasars apart from other celestial objects. However, these models are trained on existing data, which limits the potential candidates to objects similar to those already known. If a new quasar is more luminous than any other previously observed, the programme might reject it and classify it instead as a star not too distant from Earth. ...

Webb telescope spots hints that Eris, Makemake are geologically active

Active geology—and the large-scale chemistry it can drive—requires significant amounts of heat. Dwarf planets near the far edges of the Solar System, like Pluto and other Kuiper Belt objects, formed from frigid, icy materials and have generally never transited close enough to the Sun to warm up considerably. Any heat left over from their formation was likely long since lost to space. Yet Pluto turned out to be a world rich in geological features, some of which implied ongoing resurfacing of the dwarf planet's surface. Last week, researchers reported that the same might be true for other dwarf planets in the Kuiper Belt. Indications come thanks to the capabilities of the Webb telescope, which was able to resolve differences in the hydrogen isotopes found on the chemicals that populate the surface of Eris and Makemake.

Wi-Fi software found in many major laptops and smartphones has a major security flaw — here's what

Many of the most popular laptops and smartphones in use today could be vulnerable to two major security flaws that could result in identity theft, data exfiltration, business email compromise (BEC) and other risks, experts have warned. This is according to cybersecurity researchers at Top10VPN and Mathy Vanhoef, who found two separate vulnerabilities - one tracked as CVE-2023-52160, and another tracked as CVE-2023-52161. With the latter, a threat actor would be able to join an otherwise protected Wi-Fi network, and target other devices connected to it with malware or infostealers. The former, on the other hand, is found in the default software Android uses to handle logging into wireless networks and allows hackers to create a malicious clone of legitimate networks. If a victim gets tricked into joining this malicious clone, their traffic can be hijacked. Patches available While the vulnerabilities sound ominous, they’re not that easy to exploit. For the first one, the target’s Wi-Fi client needs to be configured not to verify the certificate of the authentication server. Furthermore, the attacker needs to know the SSID of the Wi-Fi network the victim usually connects to and needs to be close enough to be able to connect to it. "One possible such scenario might be where an attacker walks around a company's building scanning for networks before targeting an employee leaving the office," the researchers explained. CVE-2023-52161 was said to affect any network using a Linux device as a wireless access point. Most Linux distributions (Debian, Red Hat, SUSE, Ubuntu), have all released patches, and so has ChromeOS. An Android fix is still pending. "In the meantime, it's critical, therefore, that Android users manually configure the CA certificate of any saved enterprise networks to prevent the attack," Top10VPN said. Via The Hacker News

The Y Chromosome Is Vanishing. A New Sex Gene May Be The Future of Men.

The sex of human and other mammal babies is decided by a male-determining gene on the Y chromosome. But the human Y chromosome is degenerating and may disappear in a few million years, leading to our extinction unless we evolve a new sex gene. The good news is two branches of rodents have already lost their Y chromosome and have lived to tell the tale. A recent paper in Proceedings of the National Academy of Science shows how the spiny rat has evolved a new male-determining gene. How the Y chromosome determines human sex In humans, as in other mammals, females have two X chromosomes and males have a single X and a puny little chromosome called Y. The names have nothing to do with their shape; the X stood for 'unknown'. The X contains about 900 genes that do all sorts of jobs unrelated to sex. But the Y contains few genes (about 55) and a lot of non-coding DNA – simple repetitive DNA that doesn't seem to do anything. But the Y chromosome packs a punch because it contains an all-important gene that kick-starts male development in the embryo. At about 12 weeks after conception, this master gene switches on others that regulate the development of a testis. The embryonic testis makes male hormones (testosterone and its derivatives), which ensures the baby develops as a boy. This master sex gene was identified as SRY (sex region on the Y) in 1990. It works by triggering a genetic pathway starting with a gene called SOX9 which is key for male determination in all vertebrates, although it does not lie on sex chromosomes. The disappearing Y Most mammals have an X and Y chromosome similar to ours; an X with lots of genes, and a Y with SRY plus a few others. This system comes with problems because of the unequal dosage of X genes in males and females. How did such a weird system evolve? The surprising finding is that Australia's platypus has completely different sex chromosomes, more like those of birds. In platypus, the XY pair is just an ordinary chromosome, with two equal members. This suggests the mammal X and Y were an ordinary pair of chromosomes not that long ago. In turn, this must mean the Y chromosome has lost 900–55 active genes over the 166 million years that humans and platypus have been evolving separately. That's a loss of about five genes per million years. At this rate, the last 55 genes will be gone in 11 million years. Our claim of the imminent demise of the human Y created a furore, and to this day there are claims and counterclaims about the expected lifetime of our Y chromosome – estimates between infinity and a few thousand years. Rodents with no Y chromosome The good news is we know of two rodent lineages that have already lost their Y chromosome – and are still surviving. The mole voles of eastern Europe and the spiny rats of Japan each boast some species in which the Y chromosome, and SRY, have completely disappeared. The X chromosome remains, in a single or double dose in both sexes.

Opinion: I’m an astronaut. Here’s what I can tell you about what you’ll experience in the Mars simul

NASA has put out a call for applicants to apply to be test subjects for an upcoming human space exploration Mars study that will last for a full Earth year. Is this something you would like to do? It’s a compensated position, but what’s a year of your life worth? That should be your first question. And there are lots of other details to work out before you disappear for a year. I know something about being deployed on a NASA vessel for months at a time. For my longest mission on the International Space Station (ISS), I was gone for 193 days, from October 2004 to April 2005. That doesn’t count the two months I spent in Russia to finish my training before the launch, and two weeks after my return to Earth before I was finally able to get back home to the US. This upcoming Mars simulator mission won’t require that you be astronaut-ready. In fact, the requirements are fairly broad: You need to be a healthy, non-smoking US citizen or permanent resident between the ages of 30 and 55 and proficient in English. You’ll also need to meet certain STEM requirements or have the requisite military experience or have 1,000-plus pilot flight hours. One thing to consider before you take part in simulating being on the Red Planet is what happens to your possessions back home as an Earthling. Who is going to take care of your stuff? Who’s going to help pay your bills? NASA doesn’t really help sort out those sorts of life issues. During my monthslong space mission, I was able to put everything on autopay on my credit cards or through my credit union. The grass at my home was cut by a lawn service — I paid them an average amount monthly and squared up with them after my return. It was all manageable. ...

Apple says iPhone 15 battery lifespan is now doubled — but there’s a catch

Recently there was a rare occurrence in the world of smartphones as it appears that the battery lifespan of the iPhone 15 is actually better than was originally claimed by Apple. It is rare for details about a device to change after it has already been released, and even more so for it to be a particularly drastic change. However, it seems that the battery lifespan of the iPhone 15 is more than double what was originally claimed, although Apple has yet to mention what has caused this change to occur. According to a report from 9to5Mac, Apple has retested the batteries in the iPhone 15 and the iPhone 15 Pro and now claims that they can maintain at least 80 percent of their original capacity for 1,000 charging cycles, which is more than double the 500 cycles that they originally claimed. There is currently no mention if the change has happened for every model in the iPhone 15 lineup. When we tested the iPhone 15 series batteries we found them all to be relatively very long-lasting with both the iPhone 15 Plus and iPhone 15 Pro Max appearing in our best phone battery life list. When Apple mentions charging cycles they mean charging the phone up to 100% and then letting it naturally wear down to 0%. Batteries naturally decay over time and lose the amount of charge they can hold, despite saying 100% on the phone. This means that, over time, the phone won’t be able to run for as long. However, battery testing can be difficult and it is rare to get a concrete answer as many varying factors can change the result. The main question currently is how this occurred and why. Apple has yet to comment so we do not know if the battery is simply better than was originally stated, or if Apple has simply changed how it tests its batteries. Apple has had some issues over battery longevity. For instance, iPhone 14 users found their phones losing battery health after less than a year of use, and then there's the infamous “Batterygate” controversy that was settled this year. However, this is still great news for those who like to keep their iPhones for as long as possible before upgrading. ...

Stability announces Stable Diffusion 3, a next-gen AI image generator

On Thursday, Stability AI announced Stable Diffusion 3, an open-weights next-generation image-synthesis model. It follows its predecessors by reportedly generating detailed, multi-subject images with improved quality and accuracy in text generation. The brief announcement was not accompanied by a public demo, but Stability is opening up a waitlist today for those who would like to try it. Stability says that its Stable Diffusion 3 family of models (which takes text descriptions called "prompts" and turns them into matching images) range in size from 800 million to 8 billion parameters. The size range accommodates allowing different versions of the model to run locally on a variety of devices—from smartphones to servers. Parameter size roughly corresponds to model capability in terms of how much detail it can generate. Larger models also require more VRAM on GPU accelerators to run. Since 2022, we've seen Stability launch a progression of AI image-generation models: Stable Diffusion 1.4, 1.5, 2.0, 2.1, XL, XL Turbo, and now 3. Stability has made a name for itself as providing a more open alternative to proprietary image-synthesis models like OpenAI's DALL-E 3, though not without controversy due to the use of copyrighted training data, bias, and the potential for abuse. (This has led to lawsuits that are unresolved.) Stable Diffusion models have been open-weights and source-available, which means the models can be run locally and fine-tuned to change their outputs. As far as tech improvements are concerned, Stability CEO Emad Mostaque wrote on X, "This uses a new type of diffusion transformer (similar to Sora) combined with flow matching and other improvements. This takes advantage of transformer improvements & can not only scale further but accept multimodal inputs." Like Mostaque said, the Stable Diffusion 3 family uses diffusion transformer architecture, which is a new way of creating images with AI that swaps out the usual image-building blocks (such as U-Net architecture) for a system that works on small pieces of the picture. The method was inspired by transformers, which are good at handling patterns and sequences. This approach not only scales up efficiently but also reportedly produces higher-quality images. Stable Diffusion 3 also utilizes "flow matching," which is a technique for creating AI models that can generate images by learning how to transition from random noise to a structured image smoothly. It does this without needing to simulate every step of the process, instead focusing on the overall direction or flow that the image creation should follow. ...

Bambu Lab is recalling every A1 3D printer — don’t use them until you read this



Bambu Lab is officially recalling all A1 3D printers (not counting the A1 Mini). The company “strongly” urges owners to stop using it for safety reasons after it was alerted to “unstable temperature readings” that it first traced to a faulty heatbed cable last week, as reported by Tom’s Hardware. After further investigation, Bambu says “less than 0.1% of all the A1 printers sold” are affected by the problem, but it can’t say with 100 percent certainty what the cause is, so it’s offering a full refund to any A1 owner who wants it. The company isn’t recalling any other printers in its lineup, so if you own an X1 series, P1 series, or the A1 Mini that our own Sean Hollister called “almost the easy button” of printers. Here’s a TL;DR of what’s going on: Last week, Bambu Lab found that the design of the A1 3D printer’s heatbad cable could lead to kinks and possible short circuits. This week, it says there may be a separate issue causing heat problems in some printers. In the interest of safety, the company is recalling all A1 3D printers that it has sold, and Micro Center is no longer selling them — Bambu is offering full refunds, $80 vouchers for choosing a replacement, or a $120 voucher for its store if you choose to fix it yourself with free repair parts. And some more detail: The company wrote last week that it hadn’t properly designed the heatbed cable’s strain relief — the fatter part of the cable meant to prevent kinking where it connects — making it too easy to damage and possibly short circuit. But Bambu now believes another, yet unknown issue could be at play for some printers, leading it to its decision to recall the A1. Bambu Lab says that it will take up to 15 business days to process each refund, but if you want to apply the refund to one of its other printers instead, it will give you an $80 voucher to use towards that purchase — or towards a redesigned A1 printer when they’re available “around May.” Alternatively, you can choose to repair the A1 yourself when new heatbeds are ready around the end of March and receive a $120 voucher to use for anything in Bambu’s online store (provided self-repair is legal in your country). Bambu uploaded a video of the replacement process and detailed it in a written tutorial to help you decide if you’re comfortable going the DIY route.

iPhone 15 Pro Max Beats The Galaxy S24 By The Skin Of Its Teeth In The Latest Competitive Speed Test



The Galaxy S24 Ultra might have been able to last longer than the iPhone 15 Pro Max in a previous battery drain test, but Apple’s top-end flagship retains its title of being the speed test king by beating Samsung’s latest and greatest flagship. However, both handsets were ‘neck and neck’ against one another, and it could have been anyone’s day. Galaxy S24 Ultra narrowly misses victory against the iPhone 15 Pro Max by barely three seconds The iPhone 15 Pro Max and Galaxy S24 Ultra represent the very best in flagship smartphone technology, with PhoneBuff returning with a speed test between the two premium competitors. Even with Samsung limiting its titanium-touting titan to just 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM, it appears that it made some software improvements to its OneUI because at no point does the handset show any sign of stutter or slowing down as it maintained its pace with the iPhone 15 Pro Max. RELATED STORY Galaxy S24 Ultra Uses An Inferior Titanium Variant Compared To The Grade 5 That Apple Employed Last Year, Reveals New Teardown Unfortunately, some apps are more optimized on iOS than they are on Android, so it is unfair to lay blame on Samsung when it not only used a slightly powerful version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 to compete with the iPhone 15 Pro Max’s A17 Pro but also houses other high-end specifications to complete the package. Similar to the first lap, the Galaxy S24 Ultra managed to stay locked with its latest rival in the second lap, and at no stage does the flagship have to re-open any app, showing Samsung has improved memory management here. Unfortunately, there can be only one winner, and on this occasion, it was the iPhone 15 Pro Max, which finished with a total time of 2 minutes and 54 seconds, with the Galaxy S24 Ultra in close pursuit, finishing the same test with a time of 2 minutes and 57 seconds. While there will be continuous rants from the Android camp, there is a silver lining too. Earlier, we reported about an internal storage benchmark comparison performed between the two smartphones, with the Galaxy S24 Ultra featuring internal memory that was up to 75 percent faster than the iPhone 15 Pro Max, even though the latter uses NVMe onboard storage, so there is something to cheer about.
