A new analysis of the surface of Venus hints the planet might be geologically active

Scientists have performed a new analysis of the surface of Venus that has revealed evidence of tectonic motion. That evidence comes in the form of crustal blocks that have jostled against each other like broken chunks of pack ice on Earth's lakes and oceans. Researchers say that the movement of those blocks could indicate that Venus is geologically active and give insights into exoplanet tectonics and early tectonic activity on Earth.

Radio signals coming from the nightside of exoplanets could reveal planetary details

Radio signals coming from the nightside of exoplanets could reveal planetary details

So far, in the search for exoplanets, scientists have been unable to detect radio signals coming from those planets. However, they believe that radio signals from distant solar systems could give astronomers valuable information about the characteristics of the planet they emanate from. A research paper published by Rice University scientists has outlined a better way to determine which exoplanets are most likely to produce detectable radio signals based on activity within the magnetosphere on the nightside of the planet.

Peloton made a free feature subscription-only to address safety concerns

The sudden obsession over indoor fitness, especially during the pandemic, has catapulted Peloton's name into mainstream media. Unfortunately, it stayed under the spotlight not because of its success but because of the accidents and even death related to the super-expensive exercise equipment. Initially refusing to recall its products, Peloton eventually announced a voluntary recall of its Tread+ and Tread treadmills. Now it is taking one step further by locking what used to be a free feature of the treadmills behind a monthly subscription in a move that some have characterized as effectively bricking the equipment.

AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution takes on NVIDIA DLSS from a different angle

Computer hardware is getting more powerful but not everyone has access to the latest and greatest technologies. High-end graphics cards are, of course, expensive and are now even harder to find, thanks to a global chip shortage. Unlike consoles with fixed hardware, PC gamers have a variety of combinations to try out, both in hardware and game settings, to find the best compromise between quality and performance. AMD's new FidelityFX Super Resolution tech, thankfully abbreviated to FSR, claims you don't have to choose between performance and high resolutions. In fact, you don't even have to choose between AMD and NVIDIA cards if it comes down to it.

Microsoft Store Cyberpunk 2077 refund policy ends next month

What should have been CD Projekt RED's crowning glory quickly became its albatross. Much-anticipated and repeatedly delayed, Cyberpunk 2077's disastrous launch became one for the gaming history books. Sony yanked it off completely from the PlayStation store while game distribution channels made exceptions for the game in their return and refund policies. The controversy around Cyberpunk 2077 has seemingly died down by now, at least enough for Sony to bring the game back to its shelves and for Microsoft to end its generous refund offer for the title.
