I am getting all Microsoft updates on my Windows 10 Home edition but they never touch the drivers I am getting from nVidia through Geforce. I regularly check MS updates on Control Panel, Maintenance, View Reliability History. My GTX 1050 Ti is working fine both on SETI@home and Einstein@home GPU tasks.

LIGO includes two interferometers, one in Louisiana and the other in Hanford,Washington State.The fourth event was also observed by VIRGO, a French Italian joint venture in Cascina,Pisa. Ron Drever from UK would also have deserved the prize, but he died this year.

I am running an Opteron 1210 on my SUN workstation since January 2008. Recently it started crashing and I checked its 8 GB DDR2 RAM (four modules) via the SuSE Tumbleweed ISO disk which has a RAM tester. One or more modules were failing, so I bought 4 Corsair DDR2 modules for 105 euro. Apart from this, I only changed its hard disk, which had started at 160 GB and is now at 1 TB. I also installed an Audigy sound card and a GTX 750 Ti GPU board, for which SuSE Linux gave me the 384.69 driver. All the rest is just the same of 2008. I had paid 780 euro for it. I have always liked SUN computers, now they are Oracle.

You cannot launch a manned mission to Mars in the hope it finds enough fuel to get back. You must be sure it has fuel to get back and this can be done, IMHO, with a nuclear propulsion system.

NASA simulates Mars missions in the Johnson Space Center. The last one, HERA XIII, lasted 45 days. As far I can see from photos, the 4 crew members are all male. Does this means that NASA is not planning to send women on a Mars mission? This is a rather a controversial subject.

It seems that Musk wants to go to Mars with a 31 boosters Falcon rocket. But will it come back? I remember a forecast made by Wernher von Braun. You need to put 30 thousand tons in Earth orbit to go to Mars and come back. Even with improvements made to rocket propulsion, this is too much. The NASA-ESA-ROSCOSMOS plan to build a lunar space station as a start step seems more realistic.

Italian newspapers run a story about a NASA-ROSCOSMOS agreement to build a space station orbiting the Moon. Maybe Musk wants to be a partner in that enterprise. The agreement was announced at Adelaide, Australia.

It is difficult to live without electricity. Since the whole electric power system in Puerto Rico was obsolete, maybe a solution could be found with the installation of photovoltaic panels on each building. But this requires a lot of money, and should be provided by the state. I am not sure what Puerto Rico is in political terms, a state of the USA or what else. But America should find the money to help those people, as it has done with the Marshall plan in Europe after WW2.
