Intel has come up with a new storage chip and they say that it is tougher and faster than what any of the competition has to offer and it is in production. 3D Xpoint is 1,000 times faster than NAND architecture which is seen in the majority of solid state drives and flash memory. It doesn’t have transistors and instead it relies on bulk material property change in order to switch bits from low to high resistance states. The memory cells then go into an intricate 3D checkboard pattern that is layered and which has 10 times the density of […]

Naturally Occurring Nuclear Reactor Found In Oklo, Africa By Perrin In 1972

While Americans pride themselves on unlocking the secrets of the atom for military purposes as well as sustainable energy, it seems that the mother nature is still able to solve even the most complex problems well before us. In 1972, French physicist Francis Perrin made an interesting discovery in Oklo, Africa. While mining uranium ore, he discovered that the concentration of uranium 235 was less than what is typically found in uranium ore samples. Uranium 235 can be found to make up 0.720 percent of any given uranium sample but samples taken in Oklo showed a decrease to 0.717 percent. With […]
