Around a month ago, SpaceX launched one of its Dragon cargo capsules into space, loading it up with supplies destined for the International Space Station. Now, it has made it safely back to Earth, splashing into the Pacific Ocean just after 6PM Eastern. SpaceX tweeted the capsule's progress throughout the day, noting its successful departure burns that separated it from the ISS and when to expect its arrival.
Its return completes the CRS-15 mission, which brought scientific experiments, crew provisions, equipment and other supplies to the ISS. NASA says it will take approximately two days for the capsule to be retrieved and brought back to port, after which the cargo and experiments it returned will be unloaded.
Commodore 64 Mini releases on October 9 with 64 built-in games
The Commodore 64 Mini is coming out on October 9. The plug-and-play version of the classic PC system is 50 percent smaller than the original. It comes with 64 built-in games (hooray for branding) and a joystick. The system has a built-in keyboard, similar to the original home computer from the 1980s.
Retro gaming machines are becoming a profitable business. The NES Classic Edition was such huge hit in 2016 that it was nearly impossible to find on store shelves. The SNES Classic Edition became another success when it release last year. The original Commodore 64 came out in 1982, and it was one of the first major home computers and helped pioneer the PC gaming market. While the Nintendo classic systems are based on hardware that’s a bit less old than the C64, other older systems like the Intellivision and Atari 2600 have been getting new life as plug-and-play machines.
The library of 64 games includes California Games, Winter Games, Impossible Mission II, Boulder Dash, Jumpman, Pitstop II, Speedball II: Brutal Deluxe, Street Sports Baseball, Summer Games II, Temple of Apshai Trilogy, and Uridium.

The system has two USB ports. You can plug in an extra joystick for multiplayer games, but you can also connect a keyboard and use the machine as a functional (albeit dated) home computer. You can even use the C64 BASIC computer programming language to create your own software. Thanks to faithful C64 fans, you can still find resources online to help you make your own games (or you can just copy someone else’s codes if you want to play them).
At an event before the New York Auto Show back in March, Waymo unveiled the first luxury vehicle it's adding to its nascent self-driving service's fleet: The new I-Pace, Jaguar Land Rover's answer to Tesla's Model X. The Alphabet company finally got its first handful of prototypes of the electric SUVs, and is testing them on Bay Area streets to gauge their performance for hardware and software design requirements. Eventually, the company will integrate the I-Pace into its forthcoming self-driving service, which is set to debut in 2020.
Waymoは3月に行われたニューヨークオートショー以前のイベントで、その新生自動運転サービス軍団に加えられる初めての高級車を披露しました。新しい I-Paceが、テスラモデルXに対するJaguar Land Roverの答えです。アルファベット社は最終的に、初のエレクトリックSUVのプロトタイプを手に入れ、ベイエリアの道路で試験をしています。それらのハードウェアとソフトウェアの設計要件に対するパフォーマンスを測るためです。最終的に同社はこの I-Paceを、自身の来たる自動運転サービスに統合するでしょう。それは2020年に予定されています。

Waymo projects up to 20,000 I-Paces will be built in the first two years of production, which could serve a potential one million trips every day, according to a press release. The SUVs will be the second vehicle in Waymo's upcoming self-driving service after the Chrysler Pacifica, which will make up the bulk of its nascent fleet after the company ordered 62,000 more of them back in March. After successfully testing the minivans in Arizona, Waymo started trying them out on the streets of Atlanta and San Francisco earlier this year.
