Investing in undersea internet cables has been a big part of data strategy plans for tech giants in recent years.Now Microsoft and Facebook are teaming up for the mother of all cables: A 4,100-mile monster that can move 160 Tbps, which will make it the highest capacity cable on Earth.Last year, Microsoft first announced it would need to lay such a cable to help funnel the ever increasing flood of customer data that s stored in the cloud.Were some kind of disaster — say nuclear attack, earthquake, or even a ship s anchor, no joke — to hit the region, it could wipe many of them out.Telecom companies like AT and Sprint have traditionally helped finance these types of cables, but they re quickly being outpaced in both length and capacity by tech companies.Although several cables are longer like the 24,000 mile SEA-ME-WE-3 which connects two dozen countries , MAREA has eight fibre pairs where many cables only have two.

SpaceX has been having an incredible run of rocket launches lately.Not easy.This evening, it will attempt one of its most complicated landings yet.Let s watch and see what happens at 21:40 UK time.Before both of its two previous, successful drone ship landings on the Of Course I Still Love You barge, SpaceX predicted that the rockets would come close to hitting their mark, but that they wouldn t stick it.Musk et al are taking no chances, the launch was scheduled for the same timeslot last night but was postponed to this evening due to a "tiny glitch".
