The newly deployed CHEOPS space telescope has completed its first observations of an exoplanet, uncovering some fascinating new details about an ultra-hot Jupiter known as WASP-189b.

Hot Jupiters are Jupiter-like exoplanets located in close proximity to their host stars, hence their name. Ultra-hot Jupiters are basically the same thing, but, as you’ve probably guessed, they’re even hotter. Back in 2018, astronomers using the ground-based WASP-South telescope in South Africa detected an ultra-hot Jupiter dubbed WASP-189b, unlike anything seen before.

Two years later, using the brand-spanking-new Characterising Exoplanet Satellite (CHEOPS) space telescope, astronomers have gazed upon this celestial wonder with new eyes, refining what we know of this unusual exoplanet, while at the same time affirming the tremendous potential of this European space telescope, which only began making scientific observations this past April.

Bloomberg hosts Future of Data Ecosystems virtual roundtable with Two Sigma and WeSure | Press

Two Sigma and WeSure: Harnessing data in investments and customer innovation 

Kenny Lam, CEO of Two Sigma Asia Pacific and Alan Lau, Chairman of Tencent WeSure.

 

Bloomberg hosted an exclusive virtual roundtable with over 30 C-suite executives in Asia to discuss the future of data ecosystems with Kenny Lam, CEO of Two Sigma Asia Pacific and Alan Lau, Chairman and CEO of Tencent WeSure.

 

Challenges in the data ecosystem

Speaking about the challenges in the data ecosystem unique to Asia, Lam said that there is a copious amount of data in the region, but not all data is useful and a lot of effort is spent to identify and make the data useful. “Nine out of ten times, you can’t use the data because of the way data is stored, and it’s impossible to go back in time to find another way to store it,” said Lam.

Published 5:30 p.m. ET Sept. 24, 2020

Syracuse coach Dino Babers didn’t see the big improvement he expected when his Orange dropped their second straight road game to start the season. He remains upbeat.

“We’re barely misfiring on stuff. It looks big to everybody else. It’s small to us,” Babers said. “We’ve got to take care of those little things. If you take care of the little things, the big things will take care of themselves. I’m looking for the day when we come out of the clouds, when we get out of the smoke, and everybody sees what we can do.”

Playing the first game inside the newly renovated Carrier Dome might provide that boost. Syracuse (0-2, 0-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) hosts Georgia Tech (1-1, 1-0) on Saturday in a rare trip north for the Yellow Jackets.

The game comes 40 years and six days after the first
