Telescoping nanotubes offer new option for nonvolatile memory

first_img Brewer Science, Nantero to commercialize carbon nanotube solution for nonvolatile memory As Kang and Jiang emphasize, getting the core nanotube to stay in contact with an electrode, even after removal of the electrical field, is vital for performance. This “bistability” requires balancing all the forces that act upon the sliding core nanotube, in an effort to obtain the correct collision time at a high speed. With platinum electrodes, the scientists’ simulation achieved switching times of around 10-11 seconds, and data erasing times of around 10-12 seconds—very competitive with top designs.“The demonstrated bi-stability, stable at two different telescoped positions, of this nanotube unit makes it feasible for the unit to behave as a switch, i.e., switching from one stable position to the other, and thus to serve as a non-volatile memory,” Jiang explained. Kang and Jiang’s research shows optimism for telescoping nanotubes, although the application is still in its early stages. For example, the scientists performed their simulations at the very low temperature of 1K, meaning further research must investigate the dynamics at room temperature.Overall, predictions vary widely in the field of next-generation nonvolatile memory technologies, especially regarding how long it will take for a fully mature and commercially viable type to accommodate a wide range of devices, and—in a more competitive spirit—exactly which technology(ies) that will be.“The prospects for the perceived revolutionary advancements have led to active research and development programs in many major corporations, such as Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Lucent, Motorola, Siemens, and Hitachi, etc.,” said Jiang. “It is likely that a functioning prototype of a molecular processor will be demonstrated in the next two to three years, but commercialization will face many challenges, such as the lack of infrastructure for mass production.”For more information on telescoping nanotubes, see Jiang’s Webpage: www.engr.ucr.edu/~qjiang/ .

All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed in whole or part without the express written permission of PhysOrg.com. Although nonvolatile memories are common today—from cell phone cards to CDs to hard drives and flash disks—scientists envision a nonvolatile memory whose high speed and power would take the place of Random Access Memory (RAM). RAM’s high-speed currently makes it responsible for displaying applications and data while the computer is on, but it is a volatile memory, meaning all data is lost when the power is turned off. A next-generation nonvolatile memory would combine the speed of RAM and nonvolatility—enabling computers to boot up as fast as you can turn on the TV, as well as eliminating the need for secondary storage devices (such as external hard drives).“Research and development on molecular-scale memory and electronics, including data storage and computing devices, are extremely vibrant in the worldwide research communities,” scientist Qing Jiang told PhysOrg.com. “One of the widely perceived advantages is revolutionary advancements in density and speed, compared to the current silicon technology.”During the past few years, scientists have investigated the telescoping motion of nanotubes for nano applications, opening up the possibility for data storage. Now, Jiang and Jeong Won Kang have designed a device that could provide both nonvolatile RAM and terabit solid-state storage based on these telescoping nanotubes. The scientists also analyzed their design’s dynamic characteristics using molecular dynamics simulations to narrow down the best possible design.In the set-up, the movable core nanotube can slide inside a stationary nanotube by varying the electrostatic forces. This “telescope” lies between two electrodes, which are neutral when at rest. But by negatively charging one of the electrodes and positively charging the core nanotube, the nanotube can overcome the van der Waals force keeping the inner and outer nanotubes together, and move toward the oppositely charged electrode. Alternatively, by positively charging the other electrode and negatively charging the core nanotube, the nanotube would slide the other way. High damping would send the core nanotube back in the center.The contact between the core nanotube and an electrode creates a conduction pathway, and can be determined by measuring the resistance in this area, which marks a junction. With three possible positions (right electrode contact, left electrode contact, and no contact), the device could occupy three states, and therefore write one of three bits. In the midst of a widespread and potentially highly lucrative search for next-generation nonvolatile memory, scientists from the University of California have put to use an interesting characteristic of carbon nanotubes. When one hollow nanotube is inserted into a second (slightly larger) nanotube, scientists can achieve a rapid telescoping motion that can be applied to binary or triple digit memory for future molecular-scale computers.

While previous research has shown that fullerene cages can be used to surround molecules, here the chemists also designed a way to close (and re-open) the cage to let a water molecule in and out. One of the keys was making the cap the exact size to allow a single water molecule to pass through, and modifying the classic carbon-60 form of fullerene accordingly. Due to its chemical properties, the phosphate moiety used for the cap can be easily removed and re-attached to the edge of an orifice in the fullerene cage, and can sufficiently lock a single water molecule inside.The tiny container could have applications in transporting small molecules or radioactive atoms for medical purposes and other uses.

CRESST team finds new evidence of dark matter

first_img(PhysOrg.com) — In the never ending search for proof that dark matter really exists, new findings have emerged from a team working under a big mountain in Italy. The group, from the Max Planck Institute in Germany, have pre-published a paper on arXiv, and have also given a talk at the Topics in Astroparticle and Underground Physics conference in Munich where they describe how their CRESST II detector has recorded 67 events which they say cannot be explained by anything other than Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPS), a type of dark matter. Dark matter is of course, at least theoretically, the stuff that holds everything in the universe together. WIMPS are thought to be a kind of dark matter that doesn’t interact much with normal matter such as the stuff that we call the Earth and everything on it. Thus, such WIMPS wouldn’t have any trouble passing through the mountain above the detector, which is comprised of bunches of tungsten held very near absolute zero. The idea being that if a WIMP were to strike the tungsten, a tiny bit of light would be given off that could be observed and recorded. Of course regular old run of the mill cosmic rays can pass through mountains as well and collide with tungsten too. But those kinds of strikes are easily discernable and thus can be discounted; hence the excitement of team and their findings.The team using the CRESST II detector isn’t the only game in town, and the problem is, some of them aren’t able to obtain the same results. Other’s looking to discredit the whole notion of dark matter such as the CoGeNT project going on in Minnesota, wound up finding evidence of the opposite, as did the DAMA/LIBRA team, which has been running experiments for the past 12 years. Unfortunately, other teams such as XENON and CDMS II haven’t been able to find any evidence of dark matter at all.In addition to recording the strikes on their tungsten detector, the team also recorded the amount of energy released when such collisions occur, which can be used to calculate the mass of the particle that did the striking. In this case, the team found that they weighed somewhere between 10 and 20 gigaelectronvolts, which is lighter than researchers have expected. This new bit of evidence helps boost the idea that dark matter really does exist, though it doesn’t go far enough to prove it. As is the usual case, more science will have to be done before anything definitive can be declared.

Angloher et al., arXiv:1109.0702v1 [astro-ph.CO] arxiv.org/abs/1109.0702AbstractThe CRESST-II cryogenic Dark Matter search, aiming at detection of WIMPs via elastic scattering off nuclei in CaWO$_4$ crystals, completed 730 kg days of data taking in 2011. We present the data collected with eight detector modules, each with a two-channel readout; one for a phonon signal and the other for coincidently produced scintillation light. The former provides a precise measure of the energy deposited by an interaction, and the ratio of scintillation light to deposited energy can be used to discriminate different types of interacting particles and thus to distinguish possible signal events from the dominant backgrounds. Sixty-seven events are found in the acceptance region where a WIMP signal in the form of low energy nuclear recoils would be expected. We estimate background contributions to this observation from four sources: 1) “leakage” from the e/gamma-band 2) “leakage” from the alpha-particle band 3) neutrons and 4) Pb-206 recoils from Po-210 decay. Using a maximum likelihood analysis, we find, at a high statistical significance, that these sources alone are not sufficient to explain the data. The addition of a signal due to scattering of relatively light WIMPs could account for this discrepancy, and we determine the associated WIMP parameters.CRESST website: www.cresst.de/cresst.php One of the CRESST detector modules.

US Homeland Security reportedly set to deploy ultrasensitive spectrometer

first_img(Phys.org) — Online tech magazine, Gizmodo has stirred up a hornet’s nest of paranoid editorials across the globe by printing an article written by an unknown PhD student who claims that the US Homeland Security department is planning to deploy a new kind of scanning device that is so sensitive it will make all other security measures at airports moot; and worse will be able to do so at a distance allowing the process to occur without the knowledge of the person being scanned. This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. In the piece, the author, designated simply as NAC, says that the device has been developed by a private company called Genia Photonics, which is apparently chock full of physicists and engineers. It’s described as being able to pick up on the presence of mere molecules of suspicious substances (using apparently harmless, terahertz radiation) such as chemical weapons, gunpowder residue or even heightened levels of adrenaline in the bloodstream, all from a distance of up to 50 meters. What’s more it’s really fast, doing its work in picoseconds, and portable, meaning that DHS could set up the scanner at airports, train stations, border crossings or wherever else they believe a possible threat exists.What appears to worry some though, is the possibility of being mistakenly labeled as a suspect, criminal, terrorist, etc. People encounter many innocuous substances every day that could be construed as dangerous or even illegal. Stepping on a leftover marijuana stub without knowing it, could for example cause such a scanner to go off, as could applying fertilizer to the home garden prior to heading for the airport.Something else that seems to cause alarm is the fact that the technology behind the device appears to be sound, and in fact has apparently been done before. The difference this time is the speed at which it works; because of that, a single device could conceivably be used to scan every single person passing through an airport’s terminals, which means, that if deployed the days of singling out individuals for extra security measures would be over. If a person goes to an airport, they will be scanned, and most won’t even know it’s happened. The author of the article says an undersecretary at DHS has stated that the scanner will be ready for deployment within one or two years.

Hot Jupiter KELT16b offers unique opportunity for research

first_img Hot Jupiters are exoplanets that are roughly the size of Jupiter and that orbit their stars very closely. KELT-16b has been found to be within a radius of approximately 3 stellar radii above its host’s surface, and orbits its star in just .97 days—only five other transiting exoplanets have been found that orbit their star in less than one day. It has also been found to be approximately 2.75 times the mass of Jupiter and has an equilibrium temperature of approximately 2453 K. Such a short period, the researchers note, will allow scientists to watch and record a transit every day, providing a unique opportunity to learn more about the planet and others like it. Researchers are able to learn more about an exoplanet’s atmosphere when the exoplanet crosses its star—the starlight passing through can offer information not obtainable any other way. Also, the exoplanet’s large size should provide a relatively easy-to-study target.KELT-16b’s host star, KELT-16, is approximately 1,300 light-years from Earth and about 1.2 times the mass of our sun—it also has a companion red dwarf. The researchers also believe that its gravitational pull has coaxed KELT-16b closer for the past billion years, and likely will pull the exoplanet apart in as few as 550,000 years.The researchers believe study of the exoplanet by others working on different missions such as Hubble, Spitzer and the forthcoming James Webb Telescope will offer clues about such things as what happens at the boundary between day and night on such planets—such extreme temperature changes are likely to result in rain composed of vanadium and titanium oxide, for example. They also suggest that study of KELT-16b will help better understand how exoplanets evolve and move over time, including planet mortality.

DOI: 10.3847/1538-3881/153/3/97 , On Arxiv: https://arxiv.org/abs/1608.00618AbstractWe announce the discovery of KELT-16b, a highly irradiated, ultra-short period hot Jupiter transiting the relatively bright (V=11.7) star TYC 2688-1839-1. A global analysis of the system shows KELT-16 to be an F7V star with Teff=6236±54 K, logg⋆=4.253+0.031−0.036, [Fe/H] = -0.002+0.086−0.085, M⋆=1.211+0.043−0.046M⊙, and R⋆=1.360+0.064−0.053R⊙. The planet is a relatively high mass inflated gas giant with MP=2.75+0.16−0.15MJ, RP=1.415+0.084−0.067RJ, density ρP=1.20±0.18 g cm−3, surface gravity loggP=3.530+0.042−0.049, and Teq=2453+55−47 K. The best-fitting linear ephemeris is TC=2457247.24791±0.00019 BJDtdb and P=0.9689951±0.0000024 d. KELT-16b joins WASP-18b, -19b, -43b, -103b, and HATS-18b as the only giant transiting planets with P<1 day. Its ultra-short period and high irradiation make it a benchmark target for atmospheric studies by HST, Spitzer, and eventually JWST. For example, as a hotter, higher mass analog of WASP-43b, KELT-16b may feature an atmospheric temperature-pressure inversion and day-to-night temperature swing extreme enough for TiO to rain out at the terminator. KELT-16b could also join WASP-43b in extending tests of the observed mass-metallicity relation of the Solar System gas giants to higher masses. KELT-16b currently orbits at a mere ∼ 1.7 Roche radii from its host star, and could be tidally disrupted in as little as a few ×105 years (for a stellar tidal quality factor of Q′∗=105). Finally, the likely existence of a widely separated bound stellar companion in the KELT-16 system makes it possible that Kozai-Lidov oscillations played a role in driving KELT-16b inward to its current precarious orbit. (Phys.org)—A large international team of researchers has found that a hot Jupiter called KELT-16b is likely to offer a unique opportunity for research for many years to come. In their paper published in The Astronomical Journal, the team describes known characteristics of the exoplanet and why they believe it offers an opportunity to learn more about several aspects of exoplanet characteristics and development.

Bacteria found to produce compounds that activate sweet taste receptors in the

first_img More information: Robert J. Lee et al. Bacterial d-amino acids suppress sinonasal innate immunity through sweet taste receptors in solitary chemosensory cells, Science Signaling (2017). DOI: 10.1126/scisignal.aam7703AbstractIn the upper respiratory epithelium, bitter and sweet taste receptors present in solitary chemosensory cells influence antimicrobial innate immune defense responses. Whereas activation of bitter taste receptors (T2Rs) stimulates surrounding epithelial cells to release antimicrobial peptides, activation of the sweet taste receptor (T1R) in the same cells inhibits this response. This mechanism is thought to control the magnitude of antimicrobial peptide release based on the sugar content of airway surface liquid. We hypothesized that D-amino acids, which are produced by various bacteria and activate T1R in taste receptor cells in the mouth, may also activate T1R in the airway. We showed that both the T1R2 and T1R3 subunits of the sweet taste receptor (T1R2/3) were present in the same chemosensory cells of primary human sinonasal epithelial cultures. Respiratory isolates of Staphylococcus species, but not Pseudomonas aeruginosa, produced at least two D-amino acids that activate the sweet taste receptor. In addition to inhibiting P. aeruginosa biofilm formation, D-amino acids derived from Staphylococcus inhibited T2R-mediated signaling and defensin secretion in sinonasal cells by activating T1R2/3. D-Amino acid–mediated activation of T1R2/3 also enhanced epithelial cell death during challenge with Staphylococcus aureus in the presence of the bitter receptor–activating compound denatonium benzoate. These data establish a potential mechanism for interkingdom signaling in the airway mediated by bacterial D-amino acids and the mammalian sweet taste receptor in airway chemosensory cells.Press release Bitter taste receptors regulate the upper respiratory defense system, research shows Explore further Citation: Bacteria found to produce compounds that activate sweet taste receptors in the sinuses allowing infections (2017, September 7) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2017-09-bacteria-compounds-sweet-receptors-sinuses.html © 2017 Phys.org Researchers have found that as many as 10 percent of the people living in America suffer from chronic sinus infections, leading to suffering due to the pain they cause and burdensome health care costs. Current treatments generally involve using antibacterial agents and/or drugs that reduce inflammation. But as the researchers note, such remedies are not always effective, and they do not prevent reoccurrence. Health scientists would prefer to find a way to prevent such infections rather than fighting them once established. To that end, research is ongoing regarding the nature of such infections and why some people are more susceptible to them than others. In this new effort, the researchers focused on interactions between bacteria and taste receptors, which are similar to those on the tongue, but which also exist on the surfaces of sinuses.Prior research has shown that when bitter taste receptors in the sinus are activated (when sensing the presence of bacteria), the immune system kicks in and starts fighting the bacteria. In contrast, when sweet taste receptors are activated, the opposite occurs.To learn more about what happens when Staphylococcus bacteria, frequently responsible for sinus infections, make their way into the sinuses, the group enlisted the assistance of patients with chronic infections, taking nasal swabs from each. The mucus from the swabs was then cultured in a lab where the bacteria was tested to see which types of amino acids it produced. The team found two sweet amino acids—D-Leu and D-Phe. The team did the same with Pseudomonas aeruginosa and found that neither of the two acids were produced. This suggested the two acids were used by the Staphylococcus bacteria to dampen an immune response. The team next grew human sinus cells in a petri dish and treated them with a chemical that stimulated the bitter taste receptors—they then added D-Leu and D-Phe. The team found that the acids prevented the receptors from sending out an alarm to instigate an immune response. They conclude by suggesting that Staphylococcus bacteria use the two sweet amino acids to dampen an immune response, allowing them to thrive in the sinuses.center_img Journal information: Science Signaling Credit: CC0 Public Domain (Phys.org)—A team of researchers affiliated with several institutions in the U.S. has found that a certain type of bacteria produces compounds that cause sweet taste receptors in the sinuses to activate—this in turn shuts off an immune response allowing the bacteria to thrive.

A slice of nature on canvas

first_imgIt isn’t everyday that the city gets to see the works of masters who are no longer among us. However, the works of one such, Gopal Ghose — widely known for his sketches of the infamous man-made famine of 1943 — is now displayed in the Capital’s National Gallery of Modern Art. Gopal Ghose, the exhibition, has been organised in association with Akar Prakar gallery, Kolkata to commemorate his birth centenary. Born in Calcutta, Ghose spent his childhood and adolescence shifting between Shimla, Benaras and Allahabad, since his father was recruited in the army. It was his father who spotted his artistic talents and gave him John Ruskin’s Elements of Drawing. Ghose’s pictorial language is inspired by Deviprosad Roy Chowdhury, under whom he studied at the Government School of Art, Madras. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’He later shifted to a more contextually relevant pictorial diction during his association with the collective Calcutta Group. Ghose’s 1947 exhibition at the Exhibition Hall, Parliament Street, was appreciated by then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru.‘To a Bengali, the name Gopal Ghose is certainly not alien. However, he is usually identified by a signature style that is marked by brilliant passages of pure hue and the elan of flourish in the calligraphic line. That this is but one aspect of his creative self, would be apparent through the range of  works in the present exhibition, which in itself is a selection from what is a much larger body spread out in various collections,’ says curator Dr Sanjay Mallik. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixGhose’s pictorial language was was initially inspired to a great extent by the Bengal School diction, but his personal language transformed during the 1940s. His sketches of the infamous man-made famine of 1943 and the paintings executed during his association with the collective Calcutta Group testify his shift to a more contextually relevant pictorial diction that was oriented towards a boisterous exploration of the chromatic. However, in the decades that followed, Ghose’s works were more profound and had a serene note to them. ‘In the 1970s, the inward gaze crystallised further, as locale-specificity increasingly made space for the visionary, while his final paintings from 1980 returned once more to the flourish that transfixed fleeting impulsive impressions into momentous images,’ adds Mallik.Take a look at the paintings.

Abhimanyus bravado comes to Capital stage

first_imgHow well do you know Abhimanyu, the character from the epic Mahabharata? If not well, here is your chance to learn and watch him live on stage. The play Arjun Ka Beta, is a poetic rendition of the braveries of the warrior Abhimanyu, the son of Arjun and Subhadra.Directed by Atul Satya Koushik and organised by The Films and Theatre Society, the theatrical saga is of one hour 15 minutes duration. ‘The epic of Mahabharata, its characters and the hidden philosophies and interpretations behind its different incidents have always attracted the attention of young writers as well as its elements of this finds a tangible presence in today’s world,’ says Atul. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The play narrates the 13th day of the battle of Mahabharata, where Abhimanyu, inspite of being a skilled warrior gets killed while breaking and finding his way out of the chakravyuh. Later it goes on to show a dialogue between king Yudhisthira and the great warrior Bheeshama along with how Bheeshma’s inability to face Arjun who is unaware of his son’s death.How challenging was the part to create the mythological drama on stage along with precise sequence of activities and scheme of thoughts? Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with Netflix’It was a feat in itself. The actors did not have any scope of improvisations since the whole play has poetic verses instead of dialogues. The actors had to learn all the parts of poems by heart. Second, we had to understand the essence of Mahabharata through very limited resources and references avaialable in folk lores and texts. Third, portraying the characters with their typical behaviours and aura was a challenge too,’ Atul points out.The play also has a philosophical value to it with respect to how the chakravyuh is presented. ‘The chakravyuh is not only instrumental in killing Abhimanyu but it is metaphorical too. It depicts our life and our continuous striving through it. The chakravyuh is a circle of life and the only way out is to fight constantly untill you are dead,’ says Atul.Arjun ka Beta has been performed before in July 2011 in Mumbai and is now gearing up for Delhi audience to watch. ‘Mythologies definitely have an interest value to them and I am hoping that we will see a grand audience for it. Though I still have to take this play far and wide with its reach,’ concluded Atul.DETAILAt: Sri Ram Centre, Safdar Hashmi Marg, Mandi HouseWhen: 6 AprilTimings: 7 pm onwardsTickets: Rs 300, 200, 100 and 50last_img read more

Darjeeling feels left out in Union Budget says GJMs Binay faction

first_imgDarjeeling: Darjeeling failed to get a piece of the general Budget pie, despite heavy expectations. The Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (Binay Tamang faction) has pulled up the BJP government for skipping out tea and tourism industry, the economic backbone of this region.”Raju Bishta, the newly elected MP from the Darjeeling constituency had assured all round development of this region in his election manifesto. He even won with a huge margin of 4 lakh. However, there is nothing for this a region in general and Darjeeling in particular. The record margin victory failed to pay off,” stated Anit Thapa, General Secretary, Gorkha Janmukti Morcha. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataThapa stated that a few days ago, Bishta had announced that Darjeeling would get a Central University, but there was no such mention. “The government has decided to develop 17 world class tourism points. Darjeeling has failed to make it to the list also. With election over their commitment to this place is gone also,” alleged Thapa. “However, this is nothing new. In the past also the BJP has time and again failed to live up to its commitments,” he added. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateIt is sheer betrayal, feels the GJM. “Yet again they have betrayed Darjeeling. When they can’t even ensure development, will they be able to carve out Gorkhaland?” questioned Thapa. Even the tea industry feels let down. “The government’s decision to levy 2% TDS on cash withdrawal exceeding Rs 1 crore annually will come as a major letdown for the tea industry. There are many tea gardens where more than a crore has to be disbursed in the way of wages,” said Sumanta Guhathakurta, president, DBITA. Ram Avatar Sharma, president of the Dooars Chapter of the Tea Association of India, said: “The government should have brought tea under Ministry of agriculture from the present ministry of commerce and industries. The Union government should give more impetus and help in the export of tea.”last_img read more

A Soviet Space Probe Reached and Crashed into the Moon 10 Years

first_imgThe Space Race, a turbulent competition between the U.S. and the Soviet Union, officially started on August 12, 1955, when the Soviets declared that they would launch functional satellites into low Earth orbit before the Americans. Since the day when the competition began, a manned mission to the Moon was the ultimate goal of both sides: both governments invested astronomical amounts of money in space exploration and spacecraft development programs in hope of becoming the first nation in history to set foot on the Earth’s only natural satellite. On July 20, 1969, when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin placed the American flag on the surface of the Moon, the U.S. became the official winner of the competition. However, although the Americans were most definitely the first nation to send men to the Moon, they weren’t first to reach it. In September of 1959, only four years after the beginning of the Space Race and a whole 10 years before the first manned lunar landing, the Soviets became the first nation to land a man-made object on another celestial body.Luna 2 Soviet moon probe.Luna 2 was a spherical space probe, somewhat similar in appearance to Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite successfully launched into low Earth orbit. The probe was equipped with a number of research instruments, including Geiger counters, a magnetometer, and a micrometeorite detector, and its only mission was to crash into the Moon. At the time the probe was launched, the Americans were certain that it would simply miss the Moon: they knew that the Soviet space program had developed powerful rockets which were undoubtedly capable of traversing the distance between the Earth and the Moon, but they thought that the Soviet guidance systems were faulty and would never be able to precisely calculate the complex trajectory that was necessary for an intentional crash landing.Luna 2 site is near the right of the image, close to the Apollo 15 landing site. Photo Oaktree b C BY-SA 3.However, the Americans were wrong. Luna 2 successfully reached the Moon and subsequently crashed into its surface somewhere in the lunar region known as the “Mare Imbrium.” During its approach, the probe transmitted valuable information back to the Soviet mission control on Earth: its measurements proved that the Moon has no magnetic field and that the radiation levels on its surface wouldn’t pose any threat to a future manned expedition.The copy of the Soviet pennant sent on the Luna 2 probe to the Moon, at the Kansas Cosmosphere Patrick Pelletier CC BY-SA 3.0Furthermore, aside from being a breakthrough in space exploration, Luna 2 was a powerful political move. Namely, along with the scientific instruments, the probe carried a ball made of pentagonal stainless steel plates. Each plate was engraved with a Soviet coat of arms and a Cyrillic inscription “U.S.S.R., January 1959.”Luna 2, the first human-made object to reach the surface of the Moon (left) and Soviet Moon rover Lunokhod 1 Photo:Petar Milošević – BY-SA 3.0The center of the ball was fitted with a small explosive device that was programmed to detonate upon impact. Therefore, when the probe crashed into the surface of the Moon, the ball exploded and scattered the pentagonal plates all around the crash-landing site. Some of the plates were surely destroyed in the explosion, but a number of them undoubtedly remain scattered in the lunar dust.Alan L. Bean, Lunar Module pilot for the Apollo 12 mission, starts down the ladder of the Lunar Module (LM) “Intrepid” to join astronaut Charles Conrad, Jr., mission Commander, on the lunar surface.This means that, in a way, the Soviets marked the Moon as “conquered” 10 years before Armstrong and Aldrin walked on its surface and set up the American flag. Two weeks after Luna 2 crashed into the Moon, the then-Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev visited the United States and used the opportunity to rub the mission success into the face of Americans. One of the gifts that he brought to President Dwight Eisenhower was a replica of the stainless steel ball from Luna 2. At that time, such gift a was deemed a provocation because it openly symbolized Soviet supremacy in the Space Race.Related story from us:47 minutes of sinister silence: During the Apollo 11 mission, astronaut Michael Collins orbited the dark side of the Moon completely aloneStill, in the long run, even though the first orbital spaceflight was conducted by Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, the Americans were more successful in the competition as they were the ones who sent the first people to the Moon. Nowadays, Eisenhower’s replica of the Luna 2 steel ball can be seen at the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum in Abilene, Kansas, where it remains as a reminder of a time when humanity began venturing into the unknown.last_img read more

Cam Newton got benched over a tie and Carolina got benched by

first_imgRivera’s decision was the right call….if he was coaching a high school or college team. It doesn’t make a ton of sense when you’re the head coach of a 4-8 NFL team and might be coaching for your job as your season spirals out of control.For “Riverboat Ron”, apparently ties are more important than wins. The football world was left collectively scratching its head last night when Carolina back-up quarterback Derek Anderson took the field for the first drive of their Sunday night game against Seattle.Anderson threw a pick on the first play of the game, which proved to be an omen of where the night was headed for Carolina.rpmsports18: Derek Anderson in over Cam Newton to start the game.

James Harden winning MVP would confirm the award is a joke

first_imgJames Harden winning MVP would confirm the award is a joke The Rockets are headed home after dropping Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals to the Warriors, and MVP favorite James Harden was unable to get it done for the second game in a row without running mate Chris Paul. Colin thinks it’s obvious at this point that Harden is a regular season star that shrinks in the postseason, and thinks anyone that can argue with a straight face that Harden is more valuable to his team than LeBron is to the Cavs is beyond help.If Harden wins the MVP it will prove, again, how irrelevant and meaningless the award really is. Also:– Chris Paul is the unluckiest player in NBA historyGuests:Richard Jefferson – Current Nuggets and former Cavs forward on Warriors/Cavs NBA Finals; and if LeBron has any chance to take down Golden State.Chris Broussard – FS1 NBA Insider is in-studio talking Warriors/Rockets Game 7, and why Philly makes the most sense for LeBron this offseason.Jason Terry – Bucks Guard and NBA World Champion joins the show to discuss Warriors/Rockets Game 7, and Cavs/Warriors NBA Finals.Jason McIntyre – Founder of The Big Lead is in-studio talking Western Conference Finals Game 7 and preview the NBA Finals. These Warriors aren’t on Jordan’s Bulls level as a dynastyThe Warriors beat the Rockets to advance to their fourth straight Finals, where they’ll be favored to win their third title in four years. Even as heavy favorites to win another ring, Colin thought the Rockets were the better team in the Western Conference Finals and only lost the series because they lost Chris Paul to injury. For most of the series, the Warriors were pushed all over the court and looked atrocious late in the fourth quarter in two close losses.The Warriors are the greatest collection of offensive stars ever assembled on one team, but they lack the nastiness of Jordan’s Bulls teams. Even if they win another title, Colin won’t place them above Jordan’s Bulls in the dynasty hierarchy.last_img read more

Congress Is Trying To Pump the Brakes On Hackers Who Can Control

first_img Hackers have long reigned as the ultimate predators of our online world. But as more of the objects, devices and gadgets we use every day are connected to the Internet, hackers are becoming ever more powerful and are able to extend their reach into every corner of our life, including your car.Imagine driving down the road and your car no longer responds to your commands, not because the function is broken but because the car is responding to someone else’s command overriding anything you do.  Related: Smart Devices Are the Cause of Distracted Driving — But They’re Also the SolutionAs one WIRED journalist found out, that can be pretty scary.  Senior writer Andy Greenberg voluntarily put himself in a Jeep Cherokee and invited hackers — located in a basement 10 miles away — to mess with him and the car he was driving. Here’s a list of what those hackers were able to do to Greenberg’s car:Blew cold air at maximum levelSwitched the radio stationTurned up the music volumeSwitched the windshield wipers onEjected wiper fluid onto the windshieldPut their picture on the digital dashboard displayCaused the accelerator to stop workingKilled the engine (only if the car was going slowly)Steered the car (only if the car is going slowly)Related: Companies Need to Take Responsibility for Protecting Sensitive User DataThis is all possible because automakers are building connected cars before they have a way to protect them. The consumer vulnerability is getting attention of U.S. lawmakers.  Just yesterday, Senators Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), two members of the Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, introduced a bill that would require the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to create federal standards to protect driver’s privacy. Further, the legislation would require the government to create a ratings system to inform consumers how secure their car automobile is from hackers.“Rushing to roll out the next big thing, automakers have left cars unlocked to hackers and data-trackers,” said Senator Blumenthal, in a statement announcing the legislative push. “Security and safety need not be sacrificed for the convenience and promise of wireless progress.”This isn’t the first time U.S. legislators have taken notice of the wireless carjacking. Back in February, Markey commissioned a report that discovered that almost 100 percent of vehicles on the market with wireless entry points (WEPs) are vulnerable to hackers.Related: The Next Place Hackers Will Find You?

Secure Your Startup Against Phishers With These 3 Tips

first_imgJune 2, 2016 5 min read Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Phishers — unscrupulous Internet lurkers who try to get your username, password, credit card number and other sensitive information by posing as trusted sources — know there’s a big pool of money out there. And, more often than not, to get it, all they need to do is cast a line and wait for prey to bite.Related: How to Identify 5 Common Phishing AttacksEven Mattel, that household-name manufacturer of children’s toys, took the bait in a recent high-profile phishing scam. When an unnamed executive at Mattel received an email (ostensibly from CEO Christopher Sinclair) requesting a $3 million bank transfer, she approved it without a second thought.Had the executive not made an off-handed remark to Sinclair later that day about the transfer, Mattel would have been on the hook for those millions. Phishing may be the oldest trick in hackers’ playbooks, but — as demonstrated by Mattel’s recent snafu — it’s remarkably effective. In fact, phishing cracks the door for more than 90 percent of hacking attacks.The most devious of these phishing attacks are spear- phishing attempts such as the kind perpetrated on the toy company. A clever variation on traditional phishing, spear phishers collect information about a target’s network to create email bait that appears to be from a trusted source. And while most companies think they’re equipped to handle these advances, more and more businesses are being tricked by phishers into releasing confidential information.Little fish make big markets.According to FBI data, business email-compromise schemes, such as phishing, cost companies $1.2 billion in 2015. And while one might assume that these low-tech, high-yield scams take disproportionately from the pockets of corporate giants, data shows small businesses to be the primary prey.In 2015, the National Cybersecurity Institute found that 38 percent of spear-phishing attacks targeted companies with fewer than 250 employees. In comparison, just 25 percent of attacks were perpetrated against companies with more than 2,500 employees.The reason? Hackers know that small businesses are more worried about getting off the ground than spoofed emails or international scammers. Essentially, entrepreneurs don’t expect to be targets.Entrepreneurs who utilize two-party authentication of transfers are somewhat protected, but even that security measure couldn’t save Mattel from a clever attack. The only way entrepreneurs can truly prevent phishers from snagging them is through cultural awareness and communication.Related: The Phishing Expedition You Want to Avoid This SummerGet phishers’ lines out of your pond.No matter how much training employees receive, a specious sender can still slip under the radar. Entrepreneurs, here’s how to create a secure environment that keeps phishers out:1. Step away from the inbox.As soon as a request for classified information or a wire transfer hits an employee’s inbox, his or her first step should be to pick up the phone. This applies in particular to commonly targeted departments, like accounts payable or account services.And if anyone, regardless of the department involved, receives a request for passwords or credit card information — the proverbial “keys to the business” — he or she should contact the supposed sender immediately to verify the request.For example, when my CFO received an email asking for approval of an invoice, he Slacked me to check that I had indeed sent the invoice. Upon investigation, we discovered the invoice to be a phishing attempt, and, worse, it was loaded with a Trojan virus. Our double-check system paid off, and the invoice was deleted.Related: Related: 4 Ways Your Small Business Can Better Prevent Cyber Crime2. Trust, but verify.The recent DocuSign scam was a huge wake-up call for business and individuals. Even when working with a trusted third party, check that the browser’s “http” has switched to “https,” which signifies a safe, encrypted connection. When you’re in Google Chrome or Internet Explorer, a lock icon in the URL bar verifies you’re in safe territory.It may seem like wasted time, but a minute spent verifying a software request in your inbox is better than explaining to your team how you let a scammer steal $3 million. If in doubt, show the request to an IT professional; these are people who’ll never fault you for being cautious.3. Make caution your guide.If something seems amiss, it probably is. For instance, if you receive an email from your office manager who writes that she “forgot her password,” don’t just fork over the information. Until you’ve investigated, assume it’s a scammer in disguise.Think back to your playground days: Even if the man with the candy seemed nice, your mom told you to assume he was out to get you until you learned otherwise. So, be cautious: Make a phone call to the organization, individual or help desk. The extra work was worth it when you were a kid; it’s worth it now.Related: How to Identify 5 Common Phishing AttacksNo one wants to be paranoid, but with so much on the line, it pays to pay attention. When in doubt, get out of the inbox and on to the phone, watch for insecure connections and trust your gut about fishy requests. Don’t get hacked; get smart.
