Inside Singapore’s huge bet on vertical farming

From the outside, VertiVegies looked like a handful of grubby shipping containers put side by side and drilled together. A couple of meters in height, they were propped up on a patch of concrete in one of Singapore’s nondescript suburbs. But once he was inside, Ankesh Shahra saw potential. Huge potential. 

Shahra, who wears his dark hair floppy and his expensive-looking shirts with their top button casually undone, had a lot of experience in the food industry. His grandfather had founded the Ruchi Group, a corporate powerhouse in India with offshoots in steel, real estate, and agriculture; his father had started Ruchi Soya, a $3 billion oilseed processor that had been Shahra’s training ground.

By the time Shahra was introduced to VertiVegies founder Veera Sekaran at a friend’s party in 2017, he was hungry to make his own entrepreneurial mark. A previous attempt had involved sourcing organic food from around

iPhone 12 last-minute leak just revealed huge camera upgrades

Up until now, most of the iPhone 12 rumors have centered around the sizes, prices and key specs like the A14 Bionic chip and storage. But now the iPhone 12 camera upgrades are coming into focus, and there’s a lot to break down. 

According to leaker Max Weinbach (@Pineleaks), the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro Max will both offer plenty of camera enhancements, from a much better zoom on the regular iPhone 12 models to an improved Night mode on the iPhone 12 Pros. Here’s everything you need to know.

As first spotted by vMacRumors, Weinbach says that the “digital and optical zoom will be getting a massive boost this year.” Because the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 won’t feature a telephoto lens, they’ll have to rely on software. But you can expect “significantly extended digital zoom, both quality and distance wise.”

North Korea showcased a new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) Saturday as part of a military parade celebrating their Workers Party’s 75th anniversary.

North Korea has not broadcast a live military parade on television since 2017, when leader Kim Jong Un heightened U.S. tensions by showing off several large ICBMs. The country showed off its “new strategic weapon,” which analysts described as a much larger, liquid fuel ICBM complete with an 11 axle transporter erector launcher.

The first hint of the new weapon came earlier this week when South Korean officials relayed surveillance of thousands of North Korean soldiers in march formation as they displayed what was possibly a new

Seventy-million light-years away in the scenic spiral galaxy NGC 2525, a white dwarf exploded and the Hubble Space Telescope witnessed its last days. NASA and the European Space Agency, which jointly run Hubble, released a rare time-lapse of the supernova’s fading brightness. 

The space telescope first started watching the supernova, named SN 2018gv, in February 2018. The time-lapse covers almost a year of Hubble observations.

The supernova initially outshone the other stars in its host galaxy. “When a star unleashes as much energy in a matter of days as our sun does in several
