NO.3 NASA seeks a more economical solution to return Martian samples

On the 15th, NASA said that it will seek a faster and more economical solution to return samples collected from Mars to Earth. The Mars sample return project will be temporarily shelved until a suitable solution is found. In order to return critical samples to Earth earlier and at a lower cost, NASA has asked its subordinate agencies to work together to develop a revised plan that utilizes innovative and mature technologies. In addition, NASA will also solicit suggestions from industry on how to return samples. The agency hopes to return at least some of the collected samples to Earth in the 30s of this century, and control the cost within $7 billion.

Commentary: NASA's search for a more economical solution to return Martian samples demonstrates the importance of cost-effectiveness in space exploration.

NO.4 Samsung launches 10.7Gbps LPDDR5X DRAM optimized for AI applications

Samsung recently announced that it has developed its first LPDDR5X DRAM (Dynamic Random Access Memory) that supports up to 10.7Gbps. It uses a 12nm process technology and is also the smallest chip size among Samsung's existing LPDDRs. According to Samsung, the product can adjust and optimize the power supply mode according to the workload frequency, expand the low-power mode frequency band, improve energy efficiency by 25% compared to the previous generation, and improve performance by more than 25%. 

Commentary: The launch of Samsung's new generation DRAM heralds a significant improvement in the performance of AI applications.
