US government is renting out GPU power at half price for a limited time

TL;DR: Private companies are in desperate need for additional GPU computing capabilities to train their new generative AI services, yet they are encountering significant challenges in obtaining them. In contrast, researchers involved in US supercomputing projects currently have access to potent Nvidia GPU nodes at a substantial discount, albeit for a limited time.

NASA will test laser communication to speed up data transmission in space

Forward-looking: The US space agency will soon send a new, experimental laser communication technology into space that is expected to show potential data transmission rates that are 10 to 100 times the speed of current state-of-the-art radio systems. The device is installed aboard the Psyche spacecraft, which is scheduled to launch no earlier than October 5, 2023.
