Dealmaster: The best non-Amazon deals if Prime Day doesn’t matter to you

Ars Technica - July 16, 2018 - 4:08pm

Greetings, Arsians! The Dealmaster is back with another round of deals to share. Today, as you may have heard, Amazon Prime Day begins—it's the annual sales event/advertisement/sunk cost celebration in which Amazon discounts thousands of items for members of its Prime subscription service.

While more than 100 million people now subscribe to Prime, the event still leaves a big chunk of would-be bargain hunters out in the cold, and the recent price hikes to the service don't make it any more welcoming. Naturally, this has left the door open for competing stores to swoop in and try to capitalize on the Prime Day buzz with alternative deals of their own.

Below we've rounded up a preliminary list of tech deals from non-Amazon retailers that have surfaced alongside Prime Day. The list includes discounts on Google devices, laptops, game consoles, the Apple Watch, and more. We'll update this post throughout the next couple of days as more planned sales from other retailers go live, so be sure to check back regularly.

To make Curiosity (et al.) more curious, NASA and ESA smarten up AI in space

Block Island, the largest meteorite yet found on Mars and one of several identified by the Mars Exploration Rovers. (credit: NASA)

NASA's Opportunity Mars rover has done many great things in its decade-plus of service—but initially, it rolled 600 feet past one of the initiative’s biggest discoveries: the Block Island meteorite. Measuring about 67 centimeters across, the meteorite was a telltale sign that Mars' atmosphere had once been much thicker, thick enough to slow down the rock flying at a staggering 2km/s so that it did not disintegrate on impact. A thicker atmosphere could mean a more gentle climate, possibly capable of supporting liquid water on the surface, maybe even life.

Yet, we only know about the Block Island meteorite because someone on the Opportunity science team manually spotted an unusual shape in low-resolution thumbnails of the images and decided it was worth backtracking for several days to examine it further. Instead of this machine purposefully heading toward the rock right from the get-go, the team barely saw perhaps its biggest triumph in the rear view mirror. "It was almost a miss," says Mark Woods, head of autonomy and robotics at SciSys, a company specializing in IT solutions for space exploration that works for the European Space Agency (ESA), among others.

Opportunity, of course, made this near-miss maneuver all the way back in July 2009. If NASA were to attempt a similar initiative in a far-flung corner of the galaxy today—as the space organization plans to in 2020 with the Mars 2020 rover (the ESA has similar ambitions with its ExoMars rover that year)—modern scientists have one particularly noteworthy advantage that has developed since.

Britain joins the microlaunch space race with a new rocket and spaceport

Ars Technica - July 16, 2018 - 2:10pm

Orbex/Anders Bøggild

The United Kingdom has entered the race to develop low-cost, high-volume rockets for small satellites. Orbex, a British-based company with subsidiaries and production facilities in Denmark and Germany, announced Monday that it has raised $40 million from public and private sources to develop what it is calling the "Prime" launch vehicle.

The company intends to launch Prime from a new spaceport—also just announced—that will be located in Northern Scotland. This facility would be the first commercial vertical launch site in the United Kingdom and represents a significant investment in rocket infrastructure by the British government after decades of dormancy.
