The facility is Türkiye’s largest joint project with Russia. “With the delivery of nuclear fuels by air and sea to our power plant, Akkuyu has now gained the status of a nuclear plant,” Erdogan proclaimed during a ceremony that he and Russian President Vladimir Putin attended remotely. Erdogan praised “how meticulously our engineers and workers” labored to complete the $20 billion, 4,800 megawatt plant, which survived a pair of devastating earthquakes in February without sustaining any damage.

- As the pandemic raged two years ago, the term “Metaverse” went mainstream, conjuring dystopian images of Lifelight and various Black Mirror episodes in my mind. The hype exploded in October 2021 when one of the world’s tech giants, the company formerly known as “Facebook,” opted to change its name to “Meta,” signaling the entry of a new digital age. Suddenly, every company faced a decision: launch a Metaverse division or risk being left behind. Mark Zuckerberg invested billions into his company’s “Horizon Worlds,” a virtual reality designed for communal meet-ups. Nike built Nikeland on Roblox’s platform to let fans meet, socialize, and take part in a wide array of brand experiences. And of course, the “Metaverse” became intertwined with “Web3” when platforms like Decentraland launched, allowing users to buy digital plots of land as NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain. Banks like JPMorgan Chase published 17-page research memos breaking down “Metanomics” for curious investors, athletes changed their profile pictures to $100k JPEGs of monkeys, venture capital firms launched $600M funds to invest in the Metaverse, and corporate brand Twitter accounts began communicating in the cringe-heavy jargon of Web3.
- FBI Director Christopher Wray has claimed that Chinese hackers outnumber US cybersecurity agents by at least “50 to 1.” He alleged that the People’s Republic operates a larger cyber program than all other world powers combined. Addressing lawmakers during a House Appropriations Committee hearing on Thursday, Wray outlined the bureau’s recent cybersecurity efforts and its funding needs, stating the hackers are capable of inflicting “greater damage than ever before,” while placing special emphasis on the “China threat.” “The scale of the Chinese cyber threat is unparalleled. They’ve stolen more of our personal and corporate data than all other nations, big or small, combined,” he said, adding that Washington is struggling to keep up with Beijing in the cyber realm.
- Kenyan police have arrested another pastor to face criminal charges relating to alleged mass deaths among his followers, after the similar detention of a ‘starvation cult’ leader last month. Ezekiel Odero, leader of the New Life Prayer Center at Malindi, a coastal town around 120km northeast of Mombasa, was detained on Thursday following “allegations of the deaths that have been occurring at his premises,” regional commissioner Rhoda Onyancha told reporters. The lawyer for the televangelist, whose church is said to draws large crowds and can seat 40,000 people, claimed there is no evidence to back up the allegations against his client.
- A new report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has found that a quarter of US high school students identify as homosexual, bisexual, or ‘questioning’, a figure that has more than doubled since 2015. Girls were more likely than boys to place themselves in all three categories. The CDC noted that the increase “might be a result of changes in question wording,” explaining that answers like “I am not sure about my sexual identity” or “I describe my sexual identity in some other way” were not included in its previous questionnaires.
- Microsoft is trying to maintain its presence in the Russian market and is trying to continue cooperation with companies that are not subject to the US sanctions, Russian media reported on Friday, citing sources in the IT industry. “Microsoft does not want to lose Russian customers, so it does not close its legal entity in Russia is trying to find ways to continue to support software and release updates,” a source told the newspaper. According to the report, about 1,000 companies received letters with an offer to extend the software licenses.

- UAE astronaut Sultan Al Neyadi will become the 1st Arab astronaut to take a spacewalk as he and NASA astronaut Steve Bowen work outside the International Space Station a 6.5-hour spacewalk to upgrade the ISS exterior.
- The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has imaged seven galaxies that comprise a massive galactic cluster in the early stages of its evolution. The galaxies make up the youngest so-called “protocluster” ever seen by astronomers. The protocluster will eventually grow in mass and size by incorporating galaxies, forming a galactic cluster that resembles the Coma Cluster, which NASA describes as a “monster of the modern universe.” The observation of these seven galaxies could therefore help scientists better understand how the cosmos has evolved over its 13.8-billion-year existence to take the form we see in the local universe today.
- Among the thousands of deep space ‘alien’ radio signals detected here on Earth, 25 new ones have been identified from repeating sources by a collaboration of scientists. The sources of the repeating fast radio bursts – FRBs – were discovered among events detected by the Canadian-led CHIME/FRB Collaboration between September 30, 2019, and May 1, 2021, according to the new research published in the Astrophysical Journal. The astronomers were able to find every repeating source detected so far. The fact that 25 were from repeating sources out of an overall number of 50 appeared to confirm the theory that FRBs may eventually repeat. “Most of the thousands of FRBs that astronomers have discovered to date have only ever been seen to burst once, but there is a small subset that have been seen to burst multiple times. One of the big questions is whether the repeating FRBs and those that don’t repeat have similar origins,” said the collaboration. They are confirmed to be emanating from outside our Milky Way galaxy.

Balls carved out of stone 5,500 years ago have been discovered in an ancient UK tomb. Archaeologists found the baseball-sized spheres on near a beach in the Orkney Island of Sanday, north of mainland Scotland. The balls were previously suspected to have been used as weaponry but most researchers now now agree they were designed as for art, to perhaps signify a person’s status or an important phase of their life. Vicki Cummings, of the University of Central Lancashire in England, who led the excavations of the tomb, told Live Science: “They would have taken quite a long time to make, because it is quite time-consuming to polish a stone … You’ve got to sit there with some sand and some water and a stone, and basically put the work in.”
Stone balls were first discovered in the UK, Ireland and even Norway, they are a puzzle to archaeologists.
