New iPhone Price Specs, Colors

  • Apple announced its latest class of iPhones during a livestream event this afternoon, debuting the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone Pro Max.
  • The most significant new feature of any of the phones is the addition of 5G compatibility, which promises to bring more speed, less latency, and better features.
  • Outside of that context, and the new colors, you could almost mistake most of these phones for the iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro Max—so you probably don’t need an upgrade.

    If 2019 was a blowout year for the iPhone—with the advent of a new triple camera array, support for wireless charging, and Apple Arcade—2020 has been a comparative yawn.

    During a virtual announcement this afternoon, Apple announced its new class of smartphones, including the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Mini. Generally, you’ll want to think of these devices as slightly slicker versions

    Jeff Bezos’ rocket tests Nasa Moon landing tech

    New Shepard launch
    Tuesday’s launch took place from Blue Origin’s test facility in West Texas

    A rocket built by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos’ space company has tested technology designed to return humans to the Moon in 2024.

    The New Shepard rocket, developed by Blue Origin, can land vertically on the ground after returning from space.

    The rocket was carrying sensors, a computer and software designed to help space vehicles perform precision landings on other planetary bodies.

    Nasa wants to see how it performs here on Earth before it’s sent to the Moon.

    Tuesday’s test launch was the seventh for Blue Origin’s New Shepard vehicle, which is designed to carry space tourists on short “sub-orbital” trips.

    It will eventually take passengers up to around 100km (60 miles) above the Earth, allowing them to experience microgravity. They will be carried up in a crew capsule mounted on top of New Shepard.

    This pressurised capsule features

    Bezos’ Blue Origin launches unpiloted New Shepard capsule to edge of space

    A Blue Origin New Shepard rocket boosted an unpiloted crew capsule to the edge of space Tuesday in the company’s 13th sub-orbital test flight, reaching an altitude of 66 miles and giving on-board experiments about five minutes of weightlessness before a picture-perfect parachute descent to Earth.

    The capsule’s booster, meanwhile, carried out a rocket-powered landing on a nearby pad while experimental NASA sensors were put through their paces as part of a project to develop safer, more accurate guidance technology for upcoming moon landings in the agency’s Artemis program.

    It was the seventh successful flight in a row for the rocket and capsule and the 13th overall for Blue Origin, owned by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, as the company gears up to begin launching space tourists, researchers and other paying customers on up-and-down sub-orbital spaceflights.

    Jeff Bezos’ space company Blue Origin on Tuesday conducted the latest test flight of its rocket New Shepard at its facility in the West Texas desert.

    The mission did not have passengers on board, although New Shepard launches with a capsule on top that is designed to carry as many as six people for a mission. Known as NS-13, this mission was the 13th test flight of the system – as well as a record seventh consecutive launch for the rocket booster carrying the capsule, as it has landed six times after prior missions.

    NS-13 was originally scheduled to launch on Sept. 24, but an issue with the rocket’s power supply delayed the mission.

    New Shepard is designed to carrying people on a ride past the edge of space, with the capsules on previous test flights
