Business Insider spoke to three experts to uncover the scientific, physiological, and ethical challenges of space colonization.Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.But neither men are content to talk about near-term goals.In terms of settlement, Elon Musk's gaze remains fixed on Mars, where he claims he wants to start building a human settlement by the 2050s and where he has said he would like to die (although, he noted, not on impact).A 2013 study of 35 astronauts found that on average they lost more than 10% of bone density after flying missions of between 120 to 180 days.That doubles down if you want to try raising children and anything that approaches an actual colony," said David Armstrong, an astrophysics professor at the University of Warwick.

Gamlingen Nissan Leaf är världens mest sålda elbil och är en av de främsta orsakerna till att allt fler människor kunnat börja köra elektriskt.Men konkurrensen från andra tillverkare hårdnar och “lövet” börjar bli gammalt, trots uppdateringar.Så frågan är hur klassikern står sig i Europaindex – och hur länge den kan hålla ut?Det var den första massproducerade elbilen från en stor biltillverkare och har bl.a.Under åren har Leaf utvecklats steg för steg och fått “prydligare interiör här, smartare teknik där” (Carmagazine).Här är några omdömen, från experter som testat Nissans storsäljare någon gång de två senaste åren:

We know that the federal government has been trying to freeze emissions and fuel economy standards at 2020 levels; that it wants to take away California's ability to set its own emissions standards; and that it claims to be doing so to make consumers safer and save them money.But what if the government's reasoning for freezing these standards is a bunch of malarkey?That's pretty much what a new study released on Wednesday by Consumer Reports is saying.It posits that not only will the freeze cost Americans billions of dollars in increased fuel costs, it will also hurt the auto industry by killing off millions of sales between 2021 and 2035.This move is naturally being opposed by not only the state of California and a bunch of other states that have adopted California's emissions standards, but also by several major automakers, including Volkswagen and Ford, that have allied with the Golden State.So, this has to make you wonder, who exactly is this rollback of standards for?

For the past three years, The CW has benefitted from a lucrative deal with Netflix in which full seasons of the network’s shows migrated to the streaming service just eight days after the respective season finale’s aired.As that deal has now lapsed—though it will continue to apply to all the “legacy” series currently airing on the network—The CW has set a new digital strategy for all its new series going forward, including Batwoman, Nancy Drew and Katy Keene.The CW has secured in-season streaming rights to all of its new series on its digital platforms, the network said today at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour in L.A. All episodes of those show’s current season will be available on CWTV.com and The CW app, which does not require authentication to use.Those full seasons will be available until 30 days before the start of the next season, at which point they will move off the platform.The series produced by Warner Bros. TV (Batwoman and Katy Keene) will move to HBO Max at that point, while the CBS TV-produced Nancy Drew will be available on CBS All Access.On Thursday, CBS Interactive president and COO Marc DeBevoise said that could evolve into a “long-term partnership” with all CBS TV-produced shows that air on The CW going forward.

The Nanoleaf Aurora has been a hot commodity since it first hit the market and transformed smart lights from functional and convenient into an interesting art form.The company expanded after its initial launch with products like the Nanoleaf Canvas and is now launching the HomeKit-based “Touch Actions.” This new functionality further expands the utility of the Nanoleaf Canvas to make it a smart button that can control different aspects of your home.Touch Actions transform a Canvas tile into a smart button that can control different aspects of the home.There are three different levels of control: A single press, a double press, and a long press.Each canvas square can be customized to perform a different action and control a different aspect of the home.This means users could create a room-by-room layout of their home on their bedroom wall and control all of the smart products in that room simply by pressing the corresponding tile.

Here’s a reminder that biology is oftentimes more complicated than headlines can make it out to be.In starfish, an oxytocin-type molecule seems to help them turn their stomachs inside out so they can eat.Oxytocin and its close molecular sibling vasopressin have gotten a lot of press and scientific attention over the years.Some studies have suggested that the production of these hormones in the brain might be important for healthy social functioning across a variety of vertebrate species, from prairie voles to humans.They might even have a similar role in simpler, invertebrate life forms like roundworms (at least, to the extent that worms can socialise and “want” to mate.)Oxytocin, in particular, has gotten the moniker of the “love hormone” or “moral molecule.” Some research has found that greater levels of it are released when people experience orgasm during sex or in the first exciting months of a new relationship.

The laptop market could soon be shaken up, with Lenovo unveiling 5G connected laptops with all-day battery lives by December 2019.This is according to 91mobiles, which apparently spoke to an anonymous Lenovo employee.Laptops that can connect to super-fast 5G mobile networks could be a real game changer, and if 91mobiles is correct, we hopefully won’t have long to wait.With 5G bringing much faster download speeds and lower latency, laptops with built-in 5G connectivity could access the internet – and make use of cloud streaming services – much faster, potentially revolutionising how we use them.According to this unnamed Lenovo employee, the company is also working closely with Intel and Qualcomm to produce laptops with all-day battery life.This means we could see Lenovo laptops included in Intel’s Project Athena, which aims to make Windows 10 laptops faster, thinner and with day-long battery lives.

Messaging services like WhatsApp face increased pressure from governments to let spies infiltrate private conversations, undermining the promise of end-to-end encrypted chats.In a press statement following the summit UK home secretary Priti Patel and US Attorney General William Barr signalled that they had encryption in their sights.The UK's spy agency GCHQ has previously suggested a feature which would force encrypted apps to create systems capable of secretly inserting government agents into private chats.The two-day summit brought together the US, UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, and was hosted by the UK's home secretary Priti Patel on Monday and Tuesday.Representatives from tech firms also attended, including WhatsApp's parent company Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Roblox, Snap and Twitter.According to a Home Office press statement, "ministers stressed that law enforcement agencies' efforts to investigate and prosecute the most serious crimes would be hampered if the industry carries out plans to implement end-to-end encryption, without the necessary safeguards."

Back in 2018, an exploit was found in the Nintendo Switch that would allow users to run outside code.While that’s of course led to some piracy, it’s also let modders and coders have some fun with the console, up to and including getting Android running on the system, with all the features and tricks that brings along with it.As this video from xdadevelopers shows, by running Android – off an SD card, you don’t actually install it on the system itself – you can transform your Switch from a Nintendo games console to a multimedia and internet device that will also play a tonne of older games via emulation.Joy-Cons work natively, which is cool, but even cooler is the way the systems seamless docking doesn’t just work for Nintendo titles, but will also work for Netflix as well, running in the dock on your TV and then instantly resuming on the Switch’s screen if you pick it up.Now for the drawbacks: there’s obviously no GPS, mic or camera, so a lot of Android apps won’t work properly.And there are a few bugs (this is just the very first release version!)

Maybe you’ve been thinking of going ultra-wide with your next monitor, and you fancy a really big screen to boot?In that case, this 49-inch Samsung monitor could be ideal – particularly given that it currently has almost a quarter knocked off the asking price at Amazon.Amazon normally sells Samsung’s CHG90 QLED Gaming Monitor at £999.99, but you can currently grab it for £759.99.So yes, that’s still far from cheap, but it represents a major discount, and a high quality 49-inch monitor is never going to be all that affordable, let’s face it.For the money, you get a 49-inch curved HDR screen with a resolution of 3,840 x 1,080 – so yes, that means you’re getting an ultra-wide aspect ratio of 32:9.And this means that not only can you pull off the usual ultra-wide tricks like getting a wider field of view in shooters, for example, you can even have the monitor act as two distinct 16:9 (normal widescreen) Full HD displays.

It’s not often you find some genuine innovation coming from a company whose products are targeted at kids.Toymakers tend to stick to minor feature upgrades or simple cosmetic improvements to make existing products feel new again.A quick demo revealed some truly impressive self-balancing capabilities.It’s not perfect, but watching this scaled-down bike balance on two wheels all by itself is kind of magical.Before you jump into the comments to set me straight, I realise that remote control motorcycles are far from a new idea.When they slow down and stop, they fall over and rely on arms protruding from either side of the bike to remain partially upright until they accelerate again.

Early 2017 was the last time we saw Huawei introduce a full-blown Wear OS smartwatch, and it seems the company may soon be ready to bring another similar device to market.According to a new rumor, the Huawei Watch 3 may be just around the corner and it’s likely to be a big upgrade over the Huawei Watch 2.May launch at around £329 ($299, AU$450)Huawei Watch 3 release date and priceThere are no clear clues as to when we’ll see Huawei introduce its next Wear OS smartwatch, but IFA 2019 - a big tech conference held in early September in Berlin, Germany - would be an obvious choice.Bluetooth filings are the clearest hint we’ve had so far of the device existing, and usually their existence means a product is at most a few months away, as it’s a relatively last minute piece of documentation needed when making a new product.

Back in 1982, the twin powers of George A. Romero and Stephen King teamed up for Creepshow, a gruesomely funny anthology film packed with five (six, if you count the frame story) tales of terror.Now, horror streamer Shudder has a 12-story, six-episode TV series on the way from The Walking Dead’s Greg Nicotero – and the first trailer has arrived, with a confirmed release date to boot.In keeping with the anthology format, the trailer is a montage of freaky images, gruesome scares and screams, juxtaposed for maximum alarm and a bit of humour.A creepy dollhouse segues into a tortured wraith; people with haunted eyes explain that things are just the way they’re supposed to be.“You know it’s okay to be scared, right?” a voice intones over the early footage.And everything has a nice comic book theme, which is a pleasure to see.

Individual operating systems tend to have their own quirks when coding for them, and testing how everything works once your software is built can be a real challenge.In order to highlight some of the specific issues that can develop, and what can be done about them, I asked a panel of 13 entrepreneurs from YEC the following question:When creating software for multiple platforms and OSes, what is one problem beginning developers may not know about?Be aware that 100 percent code sharing across platforms is a fairly unreachable goal.To stay consistent and reduce design cycles, build out a “design system” that codifies the appropriate use of colors, fonts, textures, button styles etc.– Jordan Edelson, Appetizer Mobile LLC
