  • Bitcoin mining hash rate reaches a record as shift to renewables accelerates

    Bitcoin mining hash rate reaches a record as shift to renewables accelerates

    With Bitcoin’s (BTC) price struggling below $20,000, the asset’s mining activity appears to be thriving, with competition among miners continuing to grow. Consequently, this scenario has resulted in the Bitcoin mining hash rate hitting a new record high.

    Indeed, as of September 25, Bitcoin’s mining hash rate spiked to a new all-time of 226.633 quintillion hashes per second s based on the 30-day moving average. The hash rate has been surging steadily from the lows recorded in early...

    Patented Wave Energy Technology Gets Its Sea Legs

    New Technology Could Generate Electricity From Ocean Waves or Even Clothing, Cars, and Buildings

    Imagine this: Clothing that charges your smart watch as you walk, buildings that vibrate in the wind and power your lights, a road that extracts energy from the friction created by moving cars, and flexible structures that change shape in ocean waves to generate clean electricity for communities around the world.

    It is not science fiction. Someday, we could harness these naturally...

  • NASA’s DART Mission Hits Asteroid in First-Ever Planetary Defense Test

    NASA’s DART Mission Hits Asteroid in First-Ever Planetary Defense Test

    After 10 months flying in space, NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) – the world’s first planetary defence technology demonstration – successfully impacted its asteroid target on Monday, the agency’s first attempt to move an asteroid in space.

    The mission’s one-way trip confirmed NASA can successfully navigate a spacecraft to intentionally collide with an asteroid to deflect it, a technique known as kinetic impact.

    The investigation team will now observe Dimorphos...

  • Cisco Nightmare

    Cisco Nightmare

    Automation Friends,

    Please take a moment and insure that your Cisco equipment is secured. There is information that has been published on Reddit, Twitter and Medium that give step by step methodology for hacking this equipment. The information release is for Pentesting but could be used against network owners that are not aware or current.

    Recommendations:

    1) Make sure you are not operating using default configuration.
    2) Insure that responsible...

  • Webb vs Hubble Telescope

    Webb vs Hubble Telescope

    Webb often gets called the replacement for Hubble, but we prefer to call it a successor. Hubble's science pushed us to look to longer wavelengths to "go beyond" what Hubble has already done.

  • Mars Express orbiter finally gets a software upgrade, 19 years later

    Mars Express orbiter finally gets a software upgrade, 19 years later

    With our recent release of VTScada 12.1 prompting lots of upgrades and our love of starting the automation village with a Space story, I read with interest Jon Fingas’ article about the The European Space Agency upgrading its Mars Express orbiter's MARSIS (Mars Advanced Radar for Subsurface and Ioniospheric Sounding) software 19 years after its June 2003 launch.

    For context, the original code was created using a toolset built for Windows 98!

    The update promises to dramatically...

    Metaverse: Momentum is building, but companies are still staying cautious

    This edition of the Automation village is looking at emerging technologies Few, if any, receive as much hype as the metaverse.

    Such is the excitement that 40% more companies mentioned 'metaverse' in their company filing documents during the first quarter of 2022, according to researcher GlobalData.

    In its simplest terms, the metaverse is a network of 3D virtual worlds that uses technologies – such as virtual and augmented reality – to help people connect in richer ways...

  • Scientists Finally Create A Quantum Circuit At An Atomic Scale

    Scientists Finally Create A Quantum Circuit At An Atomic Scale

    In a world first, Australian quantum computing manufacturer, Silicon Quantum Computing (SQC), has today announced they have developed a quantum computing chip that integrates all the necessary components found on a classical computer chip but at the atomic scale, making up a functional quantum processor.

    This quantum processor was then put to the test by using it to model a small molecule in which each atom has multiple quantum states - something that traditional computers would struggle...

  • OPC UA Compliance for Industrial Interoperability

    OPC UA Compliance for Industrial Interoperability

    OPC UA is committed to compliance in order to realize “The Industrial Interoperability Standard”. Compliance activities are to check “whether the system is actually connected” and “whether it can be used in a reliable manner” so that a system can be built using a truly reliable product. As a supplier of OPC UA-equipped products, Omron also focuses on compliance.

    In this article, we will introduce you to the services for checking compliance, the certification test items,...
