В связи с недавними крупными ДТП с участием пассажирского транспорта и большого количества жертв в Тверской области и Чувашии в Госавтоинспекции решили провести масштабную проверку перевозчиков по всей стране. Кроме того, с владельцами дорог прорабатывается вопрос об установке нового знака, который ограничит максимальную разрешенность скорость для автобусов. Эксперт «Газеты.Ru» рассказал, на что следует обратить внимание при выборе перевозчика.

UFO Shocker: $37 million in debt for Blink 182 ex-singer Tom DeLonge's 'aliens' project

Понедельник, 15 Октября 2018 г. 16:26 (ссылка)

Former Blink 182 frontman Tom DeLonge got involved in a shady UFO conspiracy business, where for a few hundred bucks, people who are afraid of aliens could learn "the truth" that “they” (the government) do not want you to know. The project is on track to lose $37 million this year, if we're reading their latest SEC filing correctly. Bummer, Tom.

We found this story in a deep-dive piece today by Eric Berger at Ars Technica, who describes how he's been following Tom DeLonge, the ex-Blink 182 singer, as his "aliens" jig evolved throughout the years.

DeLonge will apparently be losing a lot of money in what is at best a highly speculative project involving extraterrestrial life, and at worst, a scam.

Great headline, not gonna spoil it, you should click it, and read the whole thing.

The setup: A rich rock star buys into the idea that aliens are out there, and bad things will happen:

In other words, the evil government is covering all kinds of mysterious alien stuff up for its own nefarious purposes. And interested personages were invited to help the good guys. For a few hundred bucks, people could get a piece of an "A+ investment offering" from To the Stars, to assist its efforts to pull back the veil from the government cover-up and bring brilliant new technologies—such as beamed energy propulsion—into public view.


Anyway, here's the money stuff. A recent SEC filing shows that this aliens protection racket scheme is losing tons of money. Read the rest

Video: Fifty years ago today was the first Apollo mission to carry a crew to space

Четверг, 11 Октября 2018 г. 23:01 (ссылка)

On October 11, 1968, NASA launched the first Apollo crew into space. This mission, Apollo 7, opened the spaceways for the moon landing the following July. Apollo 7 had the following objectives: Demonstrate Command and Service Module (CSM) with crew performance; demonstrate mission support facilities' performance during a crewed mission and demonstrate Apollo rendezvous capability; demonstrate live TV broadcasts from space.

From NASA:

The Apollo 7 crew was commanded by Walter Schirra, with Command Module Pilot Donn Eisele, and Lunar Module Pilot Walter Cunningham. The mission consisted of an 11-day Earth-orbital test flight to test the Apollo command and service module. It was also the first time a crew flew on the Saturn IB rocket.

Although Apollo 7 was a complete technical success, it was born out of a tragedy. After the fatal fire that took the lives of the Apollo 1 crew—Gus Grissom, Roger Chaffee, and Ed White—the Apollo 7 crew took over the mission.

Apollo 1 was supposed to be the first crewed Apollo mission. During a launch rehearsal test at Cape Kennedy, an electrical fire broke out in the cabin. Because the cabin atmosphere was pure oxygen, the fire spread incredibly quickly. The fire also created intense pressure inside the cabin, and because the hatch could only swing inward, the crew was stuck inside.

All further crewed missions had to wait until NASA could determine the sources of the mishap—technical and organizational—and ensure that nothing like it would happen again. In the 21 months between Apollo 1 and Apollo 7, the Apollo spacecraft and spacesuits were redesigned to more safely fly crews to space.

Rocket failure forces emergency landing by joint American-Russian crew

Четверг, 11 Октября 2018 г. 21:31 (ссылка)

NASA astronaut Nick Hague and Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin were forced to make an emergency landing in Kazakhstan this morning during their attempted trip to the International Space Station. The duo were on board a Russian-built Soyuz rocket, launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan when, according to early reports from NASA, the rocket's booster failed minutes after liftoff.

NASA reported in a tweet that the “...Soyuz capsule is returning to Earth via a ballistic descent, which is a sharper angle of landing compared to normal.” A search and rescue team was deployed to pick up the astronaut and cosmonaut from the capsule's landing site, approximately 12 miles east of Dzhezkazgan, Kazakhstan.

Roscosmos, the Russian space agency, will be conducting a formal investigation into what went wrong with their rocket.

Scary shit. Read the rest

Jeff Bezos's new lunar lander

Пятница, 05 Октября 2018 г. 19:23 (ссылка)

Jeff Bezos's commercial spaceflight company Blue Origin is developing a lunar lander to deliver Amazon packages to the moon. Well, the first part is true and I'm sure the last part eventually will be too. The lander, currently in the concept development phase, is called Blue Moon. From Blue Origin:

Blue has joined leading space companies and agencies to support the creation of The Moon Race, a non-profit working to launch a competition for teams looking for a ride to the lunar surface. The goal is consistent with our aim to land large payloads on the Moon that can access and utilize the resources found there. We’re supporting this initiative, along with ESA, Airbus, and other entities seeking to foster the next generation of lunar exploration – with Blue Moon and New Glenn (the company's commercial launch vehicle).

From Space.com:

According to the Moon Race website, teams will be able to sign up in 2019, with prototypes due in 2020 and technology development – including a test in a lunar-like environment – targeted for some time in 2021. That would set the stage for a moon mission in for 2024. Teams will have the chance to apply for parallel technology streams in manufacturing, energy, resources and biology, contest organizers explained.

"We're excited to be a part of an international collaboration to build a sustained presence on the moon. #BlueMoon and #NewGlenn will help us get back to the moon, and this time to stay," Blue Origin said in a statement on Twitter.

An astronomer's beautiful pastel drawings of the cosmos from the 19th century

Пятница, 28 Сентября 2018 г. 21:15 (ссылка)

In the late 19th century, artist/astronomer 'Etienne L'eopold Trouvelot (1827-1895) painted thousands of stunning works illustrating the beauty and science of the known planets, comets, and celestial phenomena. The Huntington Library near Los Angeles holds 15 of Trouvelot's chromolithographs that were published in 1882 in two portfolios, the Trouvelot Astronomical Drawings:

Initially, the Astronomical Drawings portfolios were sold to astronomy libraries and observatories as reference tools, but as early 20th-century advances in photographic technology allowed for more accurate and detailed depictions of the stars, planets, and phenomena, Trouvelot’s prints were discarded or sold to collectors.

Cassini probe spots dust storm on Titan

Вторник, 25 Сентября 2018 г. 14:38 (ссылка)

Earth, Mars and now Titan form an exclusive club among the solar system's celestial bodies: dust storms.

Titan is an intriguing world – in a way quite similar to Earth. In fact, it is the only moon of the Solar System with a substantial atmosphere and the only celestial body other than our planet where stable bodies of surface liquid are known to still exist.

There is one big difference though: while on Earth such rivers, lakes and seas are filled with water, on Titan it is primarily methane and ethane that flows through these liquid reservoirs. In this unique methane cycle, the hydrocarbon molecules evaporate, condense into clouds and rain back onto the ground.

Тест положительный: детей отдадут родителям с ВИЧ http://dalrate.ru

Среда, 19 Сентября 2018 г. 13:56 (ссылка)

ВИЧ-инфицированные или зараженные гепатитом С россияне смогут усыновить ребенка, который в силу сложившихся обстоятельств уже проживает с ними. Такие изменения в Семейный кодекс хочет внести Министерство просвещения. Эксперты «Газеты.Ru» убеждены — реформа не изменит положение дел. Она не позволит людям, зараженным ВИЧ, оформлять опеку над ребенком. А родственников инфицированные россияне усыновляют уже не первый год — в силу накопившихся в судебной практике прецедентов.
