© Sputnik / Ramil SitdikovRussia's Space Agency Roskosmos Begins to Design Super-Heavy Carrier RocketIn April, S7 Space closed a deal to purchase the Sea Launch maritime space launch platform complex in Long Beach, California. It is used to launch Zenit carrier rockets, and in the future, a new Russian Soyuz-5 rocket. The company has repeatedly criticized the Soyuz-5 project for the use of outdated technologies and insisted on the need to develop a reusable carrier. In the next 15 years, S7 Space aims to conduct some 70 launches. The company's proposal is being discussed in the government, and S7 Space is also negotiating with the UEC on the issue, he added. The total cost of resuming production of rocket engines is estimated at $300 million, Sopov said. © Photo: Youtube/Russian RT Russian Reusable Space Rocket Tests Scheduled for 2022 - Project Team LeaderThe construction of the plant and the … [Read more...] about S7 Space Mulls Restoring Production of Heavy Soviet Rocket Engines in Russia

According to a study by a team from Johns Hopkins University, published in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Planets, the disastrous explosions not only formed what is considered to be the largest volcanic deposit in the solar system, but also changed the planet's surface, atmosphere and hydrosphere.

USING a combination of freely available tools and code, some madman has created a playable Magic Eye poster out of the original Doom video game. Each frame of the game is generated as a random-dot autostereogram, the type of popularised in the 90s by Magic Eye books and posters. Created by a developer who goes by the name of blogum and uploaded to itch.io, OMDO features the first three maps of iD software's 1993 classic DOOM. As with all autostereograms they initially appear like static, or a random collection of coloured dots. However, if you use the correct viewing technique a 3D image will appear in place of the dots as things line up for you. This involves either focusing your eyes some distance in front of the image you're trying to view -- going cross-eyed, effectively -- or some distance behind it.
