Scientists in China teleport first object 300 miles into space!

Scientists in China teleport first object 300 miles into space!

New Delhi: Terrestrial and space experiments are carried out around the world. With the race to reach zenith ever stronger by the second, innovative strategies to achieve the same are deployed by space agencies around the world.

In the most recent development, Chinese researchers have successfully teleported a photon with Earth’s orbit.

The photon has traveled all the way from the Gobi desert to a satellite under the name ‘Micius’, in orbit 500km in total.
Researchers owe their success to quantum entanglement, a process in which two particles react as no physical connection exists between them.

According to the Deccan Chronicle, “Micius” is described as a high sensitivity image receiver that is equipped with the ability to detect single photon quantum states thrown from the ground.

The satellite was developed to allow scientists to test with quantum entanglement, cryptography and teleportation.

“Long-distance teletransport has been recognized as a key element in protocols such as quantum networks and distributed large-scale quantum computing,” said the Chinese team in the MIT Technology Review.

“Past experience teleportation between distant places is limited to a distance of about 100 km due to the loss of photons in optical fibers or free terrestrial channels,” said Deccan Chronicle.

Quantum teleportation could be exploited to produce a new form of communication network, in which information is encoded in quantum states entangled photons, rather than strings of 0s and 1s.

The huge safety advantage would be that it would be impossible for a listener to measure photon states without disturbing them and revealing their presence.

According to The Guardian, Ian Walmsley, professor of experimental physics Hooke at Oxford University, said the latest work was an impressive step to fulfill this aspiration.

“This indicates palpably that the field is not limited to the scientists sitting in their laboratories thinking about strange things. Quantum phenomena actually serve a purpose and can really bring important new technologies.”

The advantage of using a satellite is that it particles light through space for much of your trip. Last month, the Chinese team has shown to send interwoven photons from space to Earth.

The latest work done the opposite: they sent photons from the base of the mountain to the satellite as it passed directly overhead, he told The Guardian.

At present, many similar analog satellites are being developed by various teams, including the European Space Agency and Canadian scientists. However, the latest results suggest that China opens the field.

Moon Express Set to Launch Robotic Lunar Spacecraft by Year-End

Moon Express Set to Launch Robotic Lunar Spacecraft by Year-End

A private company plans to use a robotic spacecraft to launch a series of commercial missions to the moon, some 45 years after NASA’s latest lunar landing, authorities said Wednesday.

Luna Express is developing a low-cost fleet of robotic spacecraft that can be assembled as Legos to handle increasingly complex missions, said Bob Richards, founder and CEO.

The initial spacecraft, known as MX-1E, must be controlled before the end of the year in a rocket-powered electron lab actuator, launched in New Zealand. Luna expressed the hope that the effort would receive a $ 20 million prize in Google, but Richards said victory was not essential.

Luna Express has raised more than $ 45 million from private investors to build its first spacecraft and purchase launch services.

“The Google Lunar X award wins … the cake,” said Richards.

Google offers a first prize of 20 million for the first privately funded team to land a spacecraft on the moon (about Rs 128 million rupees.); Ask him to fly, drive or jump at least 1,640 feet (500 meters) and transmit images and video to Earth. The second prize of 5 million.

The occupants until December 31 to launch their spacecraft.

Google also provides additional money for other measures, such as 5-km navigation (5.1 miles), touching near an Apollo landing site or searching for evidence of water.

Richards introduced the spacecraft design in Washington on Wednesday.

In addition to competing for the X Prize, Luna Express will conduct scientific equipment and payloads for at least three paying customers, including Celestis, based in Houston, which offers space-commemorative remains ashes.

Richards said the company would pay the initial mission, customers would finance them.

The company plans to establish a permanent robot base at the south pole of the moon to explore water and other materials. In 2020, the Moon Express plans to return lunar samples to the Earth for research and commercial sale.

The MX Series spacecraft can also be extended to move to other places, such as the moons of Mars. The company expects to complete the first spacecraft in September.

Ex-NASA Scientist, Businessman Held In Hyderabad Drug Racket

Ex-NASA Scientist, Businessman Held In Hyderabad Drug Racket

Hyderabad: A former NASA aerospace engineer was detained today with a businessman by authorities over the consumption of Telangana for his alleged involvement in a high-end narcotics racket ran here last week.

With the two new arrests, the total number of people detained in the painting was 12.

Aerospace engineer, Dundu Anish, a United States citizen, would have been found in possession of 16 units of LSD, a high-quality drug, authorities said the district ban and Special Taxes.

Anish had studied at Doon School, Dehradun, they said, adding that he previously worked with the US space agency NASA.

The probe revealed that the 29-year-old engineer had, in the last month, entered the ‘Darkness’ website at least eight times and ordered various amounts of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances or NDPS (such as cocaine, LSD, MDMA), officials have said.

In the information he gave, the Special Task Force of the department arrested Ritul Agrawal, a businessman in charge of steel. The 26-year-old student graduated in Business Administration with a major business school based in the city, they said.

“He (Angrawal) also found himself in possession of narcotics.” He and Anish would order the equipment online and pay with bitcoins / encryption currency. “The defendant said NDPS substances are delivered by mail Said officials.

With the arrest of Anish and Ritul, the number of people behind bars for their alleged participation in the racket arrested on July 2 has exceeded 12 years.

The racket is based on drug trafficking such as LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) and MDMA (methylenedioxy-methanethylem).

Five of them are B Tech graduates who had good jobs in multinationals.

The department had previously seized 800 “squares” of LSD, which each cost. Rs 3000 and 35 grams of MDMA over Rs. 1.4 lakh.

LSD, which is sold as a pill or liquid, is known to be one of the most potent chemicals in mood changes, while MDMA, commonly called “Molly” or “ecstasy” is mainly used as recreational drugs Or partial.

Trillion-tonne iceberg breaks off Antarctica, poses huge risk to ships

Trillion-tonne iceberg breaks off Antarctica, poses huge risk to ships

A billion tonnes of iceberg – one of the largest ever recorded – has moved away from Antarctica after many months of anticipation and can now pose a serious danger to ships across the South Pole, scientists said on Wednesday.

The birth of the 5800 square kilometer iceberg outside the Larsen C ice shelf reduced by more than 12% in the region and the landscape of the Antarctic Peninsula has changed forever.

Icebergs in Antarctica soak up the sun all the time, but because this one is particularly large, you have to be careful your way across the ocean as it could endanger sea traffic.

The event took place sometime between July 10 and today, researchers said they monitored the growing gap in the West Antarctic ice shelf for years.

Iceberg, probably called A68, weighs more than a trillion tons. Its volume is twice as large as Lake Erie, one of the Great Lakes.

The final advance of the fault has been detected in NASA MODIS MODIS instrument data, images contained in thermal infrared at a resolution of one kilometer and confirmed by the VIIRS Suomi NASA instrument.

The development of the fault over the past year has been monitored with data from Sentinel-1 satellite of the European Space Agency – part of the European Copernican space component.

Sentinel-1 is a radar imaging system capable of acquiring images regardless of cloud cover and during the current winter polar darkness.

Tone billions of icebergs from Antarctica Glacier The image published by the European Space Agency ESA shows a photo taken by the mission Copernicus Sentinel-1-July 12, 2017, when a piece of ice more than twice the size of Luxembourg has been Broken the Larsen, C platform of ice in Antarctica, causing one of the largest recorded icebergs and changing the outline of the Antarctic Peninsula ever.

Although the remaining ice shelf will naturally continue to push, “researchers have already shown that the new configuration is potentially less stable than it was before the crack.

There is a risk that Larsen C may follow the example of his neighbor, Larsen B, who disintegrated in 2002, following a similar failure of labor induced in 1995.

“We expected this event for months and we were surprised to see how long it took to her as the fault crosses the last kilometers of ice,” said Professor Adrian Luckman of Swansea University in the UK-a.

“We will continue to monitor both the impact of this birth event on the Larsen C ice shelf and the fate of this huge iceberg,” said Luckman, principal investigator of the MIDAS project that oversees the crack.

The iceberg is one of the largest recorded and future developments are difficult to predict.

It can remain in one piece, but is more likely to break into fragments. Some of the ice can remain in the region for decades, while parts of the iceberg can move northward into warmer waters.

Samsung Galaxy On Max quick review: Galaxy J7 Max version 2.0 for online buyers

Samsung Galaxy On Max quick review: Galaxy J7 Max version 2.0 for online buyers

Amsung launched the Galaxy J7 Max (and Pro J7 Galaxy), followed by the Galaxy Prime J5 last year (J7 and Galaxy Prime), India in June. The Galaxy J7 Max is part of the ever expanding universe of the Galaxy J Samsung series.

The Galaxy J7 Max, like all Samsung J Series phones, is only available offline. Just to make sure that online shoppers do not feel left out, Samsung has now launched the Galaxy is Max.

The Galaxy is Max, for all practical purposes, can be considered a Galaxy J7 Max 2.0 version for online shoppers. It is exclusively for your purchase in the Flipkart for Rs 16,900 Rs or 1 000 less than the original Galaxy J7 Max for obvious reasons.

One normal day, the Galaxy J7 Max happens as the Samsung series phone. But again, even the Samsung Series phones received a pretty drastic improvement over time, bringing it closer to the company’s S-line range.

Samsung has finally decided to give its J series, the accelerated procedure last year and with the Galaxy J7 Max, continued with the trend. The Galaxy is Max looks very similar to the Galaxy J7 Max, which means it looks (and feels) very high quality.

It is nice to see Samsung maintain a level of consistency in terms of design and construction materials in a large “chunks” of their phones that cost less than Rs 20,000, a segment that has seen Samsung make unique in full plastic mobile.

Like the Galaxy J7 Max, Max is the Galaxy also features an entirely metallic monocoque design – the upper and lower ends being plastic with polished metal finish to accommodate antennas – with a 2.5D glass curved forward.

It comes with front-mounted physical host buttons that work like a fingerprint scanner. Like the Galaxy J7 Max, Galaxy One Max phablet is also a 5.7 inch.

The Galaxy Samsung Max is directly involved in the Moto G5 Plus, especially in the camera department

I know all metal means that the Galaxy In Max has a non-removable back cover and obviously a non-removable battery. This is nothing more than a small price to pay for what you get. Like the Galaxy J7 Max, Galaxy’s Max also uses a 1080p display (IPS and not AMOLED), which should work for most users.

The phone has just the right amount of pixels, without having to go to the board, which means it is pleasantly sharp – if a little on the dark side – with good viewing angles. However, the screen is a bit reflective, which affects to a certain extent the external legibility.

In terms of hardware, the Galaxy En Max is powered by an Octa-Core MediaTek P25 Lite processor equipped with 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage, also extensible. It runs the TouchWiz UI based on nougat, supports dual-SIM and 4G LTE (VoLTE compatible) connectivity.

Samsung is in charge of both functionalities, instead of three, to sell their new Galaxy phone is: Pay Mini, a camera that is – as it has an aperture of 1.7 – supposedly large in low light conditions and social camera.

While Samsung Pago Mini is compatible with Samsung Pago card for less credit / debit card, social camera is essentially a camera feature that allows users to beautify and filter on the fly while taking pictures and sharing them simultaneously on the media channels Social, from the application of the camera itself.

GST rollout: Cracks in Oppn widen as NCP, SP, BSP join JD(U) at midnight session

GST rollout: Cracks in Oppn widen as NCP, SP, BSP join JD(U) at midnight session

On Thursday, 17 opposition parties gathered to celebrate a joint presidential candidate. Only a week later, barely hours to reach the GST projection of midnight in Parliament, his unit crashed.

Fingers are now designated the main opposition of Congress, which has reduced and delayed the decision to attend the session, which led to key allies such as PNC, SP, BSP and JD (S).

The JD (T) had already indicated that he would attend the session.
Congress was not alone, parties TMC, Left, RJD and DMK kept away from case to the central hall, but the cracks in the opposition group were exposed. And that too, at a time when it strives to make strong competition for the elections to the vice presidency.

In fact, even those who had not openly declared their position as TRS and BJD, attended the midnight screening.

The PNC, an all-time ally to Congress in Maharashtra, said the senior partner has been slow to do so, while party leader Sharad Pawar and his daughter Supriya Sule and MP attended the function.
The JD (S) receives a similar complaint. The election of the assembly in Karnataka is due within one year and the presence of Prime Minister Deve Gowda H D in the event organized by the NDA Government could now be open to interpretation.

The Samajwadi Party, which first decided to boycott the event, took a somersault and attended the function in a setback for Congress – the party representing Ram Gopal Yadav and Naresh Agrawal.

Speaking to The Indian Express, leader Tariq Anwar PNC said that Congress had contacted Pawar after announcing the decision to stay away Thursday. “It was sent to them that we can not make the decision in the last step, as it will not be appropriate. They should talk earlier,” he said.

Anwar shares the opinion of Congress that the event was a publicity stunt. “The GST bill was passed unanimously in Parliament.” We had also argued, but there was no need for this function, and we condemn the attempt to stage it by organizing a midnight event, “he said.

But Anwar said the party decided to participate because it had “supported the GST from the beginning.” “It’s a turn of the BJP and Narendra Modi … they had opposed it, and now they celebrate, they always showed double standard,” he said.

Anwar also emphasized that the unity of the opposition would remain intact. “It’s not a big problem … We also oppose the early implementation of the GST,” he said.
The opposition leader in the Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad also asked former Prime Minister Gowda and told him that he should not attend the event for a larger opposition unit. At that time, it was too late.

Sources said Finance Minister Arun Jaitely spoke to Ram Gopal Yadav and used his personal relationship with the SP leader to persuade him to change his position.

“When Parliament passed the law, why not be here?” The two sides met and passed the bill, “Yadav said.
In defense of his party’s position, senior congressional leader Anand Sharma said: “Every political party has its own point of view.”

“Congress has made a decision … Other opposition parties have made their decisions – TMC has decided, given the DMK and made its decisions It is not a matter of controversy in Congress had not presented any condition before anyone Of the parties, “Sharma said.

“When we talk about not approving or participating in the banality of serenity and the gravity of the midnight screening in the Central Hall, we do not consider that GST is rejected.

We have argued, we facilitate. But that does not mean that we are, as a serious political party, a party in violation of traditions and dignity and institutional sanctity, “he said.

India, Bhutan urge China for status quo at tri-junction

India, Bhutan urge China for status quo at tri-junction

A statement issued on Friday after days of silence, the government said: “India is deeply concerned about recent Chinese actions and sent the Chinese government that such a construction would represent a significant change of the current situation, with serious security consequences for the India “.

The statement from India comes days after the Chinese spokesman showed an uneasy wrath in his official statements. India maintains a conciliatory tone, but it is clear that Indian troops would not allow China to change the status quo on the ground in this area.

So far, the situation remains “tense, but civilians” between the troops on both sides. At the highest levels of the Indian government, we are determined not to let China Modify the determination of tri-union.

But Kailash Mansarovar Yatra Nathu La was arrested because it is a “punishment” that China wants to impose on India. However, the border trade continues and Lipulekh route to Kailash remains open.

However, due to the fact that the current stagnation situation is not only bilateral, but involves Bhutan, India should play with much more care. National Security Adviser Ajit Doval has interrupted his visit to the United Kingdom, where he led a strategic dialogue to witness this development, while Foreign Minister S Jaishankar who leads the diplomatic exchange with China and Bhutan. At present, the authorities in Beijing and New Delhi are in “constant contact” to calm the situation.

PM Modi meets with Chinese President Xi Jinping during a meeting of the BRICS G-20 margin in Hamburg next week. But it is not yet clear whether there will be a bilateral “withdrawal”.

In September 2014, when the Chumar attack occurred, Modi and Xi had the opportunity to discuss in a bilateral context in New Delhi. However, the current situation is different, the bilateral environment is more tense.

The problem is China’s modus operandi: Chinese troops are steadily advancing, changing the status quo and using later to change the terms of the negotiation, often using the “old time” to justify their actions.

India urged that “all stakeholders had the utmost restraint and respect their respective bilateral agreements do not unilaterally change the status quo.”

In 2012, the special representatives of India and China have a written understanding that the tri-crossing border of India, China and other countries will be finalized in consultation with the countries concerned. Any attempt, therefore, to determine unilaterally tri joining points are in violation of this understanding. ”

On the spot, on June 16, a PLA construction party came with engines and other heavy equipment to build a road in the Doklam region. A message from Bhutan came close to the object, but the Chinese are numerically far superior. Indian soldiers came out to support the effort of Bhutan and stopped stopping the activity of road construction.

“In coordination with the Royal Government of Bhutan, Indian staff, who were present in the general area of ​​Doka, addressed the Chinese construction group and urged them not to change the status quo.

Indian troops will not leave, because any sign that India tolerates Chinese construction activity could endanger the safety of India in the Siliguri corridor, popularly known as the “chicken neck” and could reduce the Northeast Of India, in case of haste.

On 20 June, Bhutan filed a formal complaint with the Chinese embassy in New Delhi, saying that the raid was a “direct violation of the 1988 and 1998 agreements between Bhutan and China and affect the demarcation of the border between the two countries A return to the status quo before June 16, 2017. “

Chicago police, federal officials to announce gun violence ‘strike force’ on eve of July 4th weekend

Chicago police, federal officials to announce gun violence ‘strike force’ on eve of July 4th weekend

Chicago police and federal authorities on Friday announced an effort to punish firearm offenses in the city swollen by violence.

Authorities say that this effort by police, state soldiers, federal and state agents federal and state prosecutors to target illegal weapons and recidivists combined, Chicago authorities have always stressed that causes blood in the city.

The announcement comes on the weekend early Friday, July 4 typically one of the deadliest periods in Chicago, which in recent years has battled violent abuse.

On Friday morning, hours before the announcement, President Trump has issued a statement on Twitter saying that violence has “reached such epidemic proportions as sending federal aid.”

Chicago had 762 homicides last year, more than the combined number associated with the Death Weapon of New York and Los Angeles, the only two cities in the United States, and the number of visits has remained high this year.

Trump insisted on blood in Chicago, weighing heavily during the election campaign and since he took office. In January, Trump has criticized federal “sends”, which caused some uncertainty in Chicago, where important federal resources were already on the ground and regularly collaborate with the police.
“We’ve always been there,” said David Coulson, spokesman for the Division of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Chicago. “We are working closely with the Chicago Police Department.”

[Trump says he can send “federal” in Chicago. Federal agents are already present.]

Trump’s past town comments have criticized local police and other local officials, including their suggestion in January that violence is “very easy to adjust” and local authorities “did not work”.

His comments bright responses were set up by local police. After mentioning the violence in Chicago in February of Eddie Johnson – the city’s chief of police – he said he expects the Trump administration to “finally meet” local requests for assistance.

Last year, after candidate Trump suggested that violence in Chicago could be disrupted days, Johnson said police would welcome “magic” Trump.

Local officials, in response to previous comments by Trump, said they had asked their government to get more arms control of illegal aid and more federal firearms lawsuits.

On Friday afternoon, local and federal authorities announced what they call the “Chicago Strike Force Strike Force,” which they say will focus especially on people who repeatedly commit crimes against fire and white targets. The illegal weapons in the city.
