Astronomers have used careful measurements of star brightness originally gathered for spotting planets for a new purpose: guessing the age of our galaxy. After tracking star quakes, they believe a more accurate estimate is that the Milky Way is 10 billion years old.When NASA s Kepler satellite was scouring the skies for exoplanets, it found them by carefully watching a star s brightness for the telltale dimming caused by a planet passing in front of it. While Kepler s mission is complete, the data it collected keeps on giving: a team of scientists led by researchers at the Sydney based ARC Centre of Excellence for All Sky Astrophysics in Three Dimensions (ASTRO 3 D) have used the data to estimate star ages, and thus the galaxy s birthdate, too.

AWS CEO Andy Jassy, speaking at a press conference earlier today, said there are certain workloads like running a factory that need compute resources to be close because of low latency requirements. That;s where Outposts could play well, and where similar existing solutions in his opinion fell short because there wasn;t a smooth connection between the on prem hardware and the cloud. "We tried to rethink this with a different approach, " he said. "We thought about it more as trying to distribute AWS on premises. With Outposts, you have racks of AWS servers that have compute, storage, database and analytics and machine learning on them. You get to decide what composition you want and we deliver that to you, " he said.
