This out-of-this-world ale is a galactic blast from the glass, a Citrus supernova in the sky, jettisoning lupulin lusciousness through the cosmos and cross the universe of your palate. Enter its bitter orbit and we'll all float on, okay' Cheers!
Be inspired by the sounds of Supercluster to write something larger than life. Make music with a lone asteroid while the drone of a nebula flows behind. Write with the beautiful ambience emitted by the core of our galaxy, enhanced by the strange howling voices of our little moon. Counterpoint the roaring flares of red giants and the desolate hum of a white dwarf. Compose with the planets, Jupiter, Neptune, and Venus, hear them sing as you combine their eery atmospheres with the haunting harmonies of solar winds. Let the sounds of the universe guide and influence your music to create something remarkable.
Without air or another medium, sound cannot travel in space. But, Electromagnetic radiation emits waves, which we can then convert to soundwaves. After transposing these waves up to the range of human hearing, we get Supercluster: a galactically cool collection of ambient sounds, straight from outer space to Soundpaint. From the darkest collisions to the most gorgeous nebulae, Supercluster is your direct path into the universe.
Supercluster is a Euro-based studio founded by individuals equipped with curiosity and a zest to create. We form a cluster of professionals determined to offer Super-Service to our Super-Clients. We believe that every client, be it a small start-up or a big international, deserves to shine their best. Our team works with every one of them with equal passion, attention to detail and dedication. The final product of our professional effort is either beautiful design or cutting edge development solutions that project our clients light-years ahead of their competition.
On the largest cosmic scales of all, planet Earth appears to be anything but special. Like hundreds of billions of other planets in our galaxy, we orbit our parent star; like hundreds of billions of solar systems, we revolve around the galaxy; like the majority of galaxies in the Universe, we're bound together in either a group or cluster of galaxies. And, like most galactic groups and clusters, we're a small part of a larger structure containing over 100,000 galaxies: a supercluster. Ours is named Laniakea: the Hawaiian word for "immense heaven."
As time continues to pass, and we cross from hundreds of millions of years to billions of years in our measurement of time since the Big Bang, galaxies gravitate together to form the Universe's first galaxy clusters. With up to thousands of Milky Way-sized galaxies in them, massive mergers form giant elliptical behemoths at the cores of these clusters. At the modern extremes, galaxies like IC 1101 can grow to quadrillions of solar masses.
But the Virgo cluster itself is just one of a large number of galaxy clusters, themselves collections of hundreds to thousands of large galaxies, that have been mapped out in the nearby Universe. The Centaurus cluster, the Perseus-Pisces cluster, the Norma cluster and the Antlia cluster represent some of the densest and largest concentrations of mass close to the Milky Way.
They conform very well to this idea of the cosmic web, where "strings" of galaxies and groups exist along the filaments connecting these large clusters, and with giant voids in space separating these mass-containing regions from one another. These voids are tremendously underdense, while the nexuses of these filaments are excessively overdense; it's very clear that on cosmic timescales, the underdense regions have given up the majority of their matter to the denser, galaxy-rich clusters.
This is the collection of matter that we refer to as Laniakea: our local supercluster. It links up our own massive cluster, the Virgo cluster, with the Centaurus cluster, the Great Attractor, the Norma Cluster and many others. It's a beautiful idea that represents structures on scales larger than a visual inspection would reveal. But there's a problem with the idea of Laniakea in particular and with superclusters in general: these are not real, bound structures, but only apparent structures that are currently in the process of dissolving away entirely.
If there were no dark energy, Laniakea would most certainly be real. Over time, its galaxies and clusters would all mutually mutually attract, leading to an enormous grouping of 100,000+ galaxies, the likes of which our Universe has never seen. Unfortunately, dark energy became the dominant factor in our Universe's evolution approximately 6 billion years ago, and the various components of the Laniakea supercluster are already accelerating away from one another. Every component of Laniakea, including every independent group and cluster mentioned in this article, is not gravitationally bound to any other.
All superclusters that we've ever identified are not only gravitationally unbound from one another, but they themselves are not gravitationally bound structures. The individual groups and clusters within a supercluster are unbound, meaning that as time goes on, each structure presently identified as a supercluster will eventually dissociate. For our own corner of the Universe, the Local Group will never merge with the Virgo cluster, the Leo I group, or any structure larger than our own.
This supercluster was formed and is managed by forward looking municipalities interested in preparing their infrastructure for new technologies that look set to provide better, more equitable services at lower cost. It explores the opportunities provided by first and last mile vehicles including shared, low speed and autonomous. It explores the opportunities for building vibrant communities around transfer points and mobility hubs and it addresses how these vehicles and hubs can play a role in the last mile delivery of packages and other freight. To support these opportunities the supercluster works with teams developing new and advanced transportation models and environmental sensors that allow both the prediction of probable outcomes and the measurement of actual outcomes of introducing these technologies. Finally, the supercluster works with teams implementing a smart citySDK to ensure the portability and interchangeability of solutions and propose regulatory and policy changes that support the safe deployment of these technologies.
The cities of Kansas City, Missouri and Bellevue, Washington are teaming with 20 other cities and several corporate partners including Cisco and XAQT to lead the GCTC City Platform Supercluster. We believe that the heart of a Smart City is data. We believe that technology can make a city cool, but data (its collection, analysis and integration into a decision support platform) makes it smart. We are seeking to discover the common set of things we all measure and understand how we can standardize that list. By agreeing on what we measure, all cities can then apply the data in a manner that allows each of us to address our unique challenges regardless of the size, governance or location of our municipality.
The Basque Government, through Spri Group, in collaboration with the two main energy companies in the Basque Country, Iberdrola and Petronor, and the support of the 16 industrial clusters, is promoting an industrial "super cluster" that aims to accelerate the path to net zero emissions in the Basque Country, fostering energy supply decarbonization and energy efficiency in the industrial sectors and creating market opportunities based on the scale-up of the new technologies and innovative services.
Clusters are areas of intense business activity made up of companies, academic institutions and not-for-profit organizations that boost innovation and growth in a particular industry. Silicon Valley is an example of well-known cluster, and there are many more around the world.
Over the next 10 years, Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED) will be measuring the success of Canada's clusters. This monitoring will help to ensure that clusters reaches its goal of creating 50 thousand jobs and $50 billion in Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
asterix * The Global Innovation Clusters are investing nearly $2 billion over ten years. This includes $950 million announced in Budget 2017, an additional $60 million announced in Budget 2021 of which $20 million each was allocated to the Digital Technology, Protein Industries and Advanced Manufacturing clusters, and the $750 million announced in Budget 2022.
The government supports the strategic use of intellectual property (IP) to help businesses grow. As companies come together to work on projects through the clusters, they can generate IP assets, such as inventions, technologies, software, proprietary information, brands, etc., all of which can be protected with certain IP rights.
That's why one key feature of the Cluster program approach encourages the strategic management of IP, and it is built into the framework of the program. For example, each cluster must set out an IP strategy, hire an in-house IP manager, and create an IP database for its members. In addition, partners must develop an IP agreement for each collaborative technology leadership project.
MarkLogic Server allows you to group multiple databases into a super-database in order to allow a single query to be done across multiple databases. Databases contained in a super-database are called sub-databases. Sub-databases can be distributed on different storage tiers and on different clusters (collectively called super-clusters). A sub-database can be either active (
