15,000-Square-Foot Las Vegas Doomsday Wellness Bunker For Sale For $18 Million

Slashdot - Thu, 06/11/2020 - 06:00
CIStud writes: The 1.05-acre lot near the Las Vegas Strip houses a 5,000-square-foot home built in 1978. Beneath the five-bedroom, six-bathroom home across the entire property is a 15,000-square-foot subterranean concrete and steel rectangular-shaped doomsday wellness bunker outfitted with an array of lighting control that highlights a pool, spa, waterfall, trees, guest house, barbecue, fountain and 500-linear feet of floor-to-ceiling illuminated murals. While the home's lighting mimics dawn, dusk, day and night, CE Pro notes that it's not automated or tied to an astronomic clock. "In order to change from day to night to dawn to dusk, the user has to physically flip the lights switches on multiple banks of fixtures, each one containing four separate colored fluorescent tube bulbs," the report says. The home has been for sale for nearly two years at a price of $18 million. All furnishings and one year of caretaker and upkeep are included in the price.

Eurasian regulatory filings list upcoming iPhone 12 models and likely redesigned iMac

9to5Mac - Thu, 06/11/2020 - 05:52

Apple’s latest updates to the Eurasian Economic Commission database have hit today, with a handful of new model identifiers to theorize about. After a leaker indicated that a new iMac model was coming at WWDC, the EEC database now lists a new desktop Mac with model identifier ‘A2330’, running macOS 10.15. This is adding more fuel on the fire that a new generation iMac is just around the corner, expected to end a decade-long run of the current iMac’s industrial design.

There are also EEC listings for the expected iPhone 12 lineup, nine new model identifiers in total …

James Webb Space Telescope Will 'Absolutely' Not Launch In March

Slashdot - Thu, 06/11/2020 - 03:00
The James Webb Space Telescope, NASA's follow-on instrument to the wildly successful Hubble Space Telescope, will not meet its current schedule of launching in March 2021, according to the chief of NASA's science programs. Ars Technica reports: "We will not launch in March," said Thomas Zurbuchen, the space agency's associate administrator for science. "Absolutely we will not launch in March. That is not in the cards right now. That's not because they did anything wrong. It's not anyone's fault or mismanagement." Zurbuchen made these comments at a virtual meeting of the National Academies' Space Studies Board. He said the telescope was already cutting it close on its schedule before the COVID-19 pandemic struck the agency and that the virus had led to additional lost work time. "This team has stayed on its toes and pushed this telescope forward at the maximum speed possible," he said. "But we've lost time. Instead of two shifts fully staffed, we could not do that for all the reasons that we talk about. Not everybody was available. There were positive cases here and there. And so, perhaps, we had only one shift." NASA and the telescope's prime contractor, Northrop Grumman, are evaluating the schedule going forward. This will include an estimate of when operations can completely return to normal -- Zurbuchen said telescope preparation and testing activities are nearing full staffing again -- and set a new date for a launch. This schedule review should conclude in July. "I'm very optimistic about this thing getting off the launch pad in 2021," Zurbuchen said. "Of course, there is still a lot of mountain to climb."
