Mars: ‘Life On The Red Planet Is 99% Certain’ As 1976 Samples Taken By Nasa’s Twin Viking Landers Are Revisted

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on April 13, 2012

 

New analysis of soil samples taken on a Mars mission in 1976 have revealed evidence of life, a report claims.

The samples, collected by Nasa’s twin Viking Mars landers, were initially thought to show proof of geological activity, but not biological evidence.

But new analysis by researchers at the University of Siena and California’s Keck Institute believe the original experiments may have been flawed and that there was proof of microbial life.

“On the basis of what we’ve done so far, I’d say I’m 99 per cent sure there’s life there,” said Joseph D Miller, associated professor of cell and neurobiology at the University of Southern California’s Keck School. Read the rest of this entry »

Channel Tunnel Deal To Enable Mobile Phone Reception Under The Sea In Time For Olympics

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on March 3, 2012

 

Soon Eurostar passengers will be able to make mobile phone calls 250 ft under the sea, after a deal between tunnel managers and mobile phone operators.

Pioneering developments in technology by French company Alcatel-Lucent has enabled operators to create links with mobile phone signal even under the sea, allowing reception throughout the Channel tunnel.

Four mobile phone companies, including France Télécom Orange and Free Mobile are reportedly involved in the deal with transport operators Eurotunnel.

The Channel tunnel mobile reception will also be “3G and 2G enabled” and is to be launched in time for the London Olympics, a spokesperson for French Industry Minister Eric Besson told the Telegraph.

The deal will reportedly be signed next month, with phone companies SFR and Bouygues Telecom also involved in the developments. Eurotunnel did not confirm or deny the deal, however a spokesperson told AFP:

“Customers demand mobile telephones wherever you go these days”

“So we want to make sure that we provide as many good services as any other travel organisations. We are looking at that right now.”

Previously there was a 23 mile blackout between Folkestone and Calais, as the train travelled deep below the sea bed. Read the rest of this entry »

Looking to the Stars: NASA Touts ‘Beautiful’ Meteor Shower Wednesday

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on January 3, 2012

By JOE JACKSON

NASA / MEO / B. COOKE False-color image of a rare early Quadrantid, captured by a NASA meteor camera in 2010.

Heads up for stargazers: an annual meteor shower early Wednesday morning promises a “brief, beautiful show” worth waking – or staying – up for this year.

The Quadrantids, a little-known meteor shower named after an extinct constellation, should peak for a few hours after 3 a.m. on Jan. 4. The agency has billed it as “an excellent chance for hardy souls to start the year off with some late-night meteor watching.” (Alas, it will only be visible from the northern hemisphere.)

VFTS 102: The Fastest Rotating Star Discovered

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on December 7, 2011

Astronomers have found the fastest rotating star ever spotted.

Young and very bright, VFTS 102 is rotating at more than two million kilometres per hour – more than three hundred times faster than the Sun.

It is around 25 times the mass of the Sun and about one hundred thousand times brighter.

The super star lies in the Large Magellanic Cloud, about 160 000 light-years from Earth.

VFTS 102 is spinning so fast that it has almost reached the point where it could be pulled apart by centrifugal forces.

European Southern Observatory astronomers think that it may have had an unusual and violent past, which saw it ejected from a double star system as its companion star exploded.

“The remarkable rotation speed and the unusual motion compared to the surrounding stars led us to wonder if this star had had an unusual early life. We were suspicious.” explains Philip Dufton of Queen’s University Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK.

Dufton and his team suggest that the if the two stars were close, gas from the companion star could have streamed over VFTS 102, making it spin extraordinarily fast.

After ten million years, the companion could have exploded as a supernova. The clue to that is a supernova remnant found nearby.

The explosion and collapse of the companion star could also have caused this star to turn into the pulsar spotted by ESO.
