Mars: Nasa lands InSight robot to study planet’s interior
By Jonathan Amos BBC Science Correspondent, Pasadena 1 hour ago
US space agency Nasa has landed a new robot on Mars after a dramatic seven-minute plunge to the surface of the Red Planet.
The InSight probe aims to study the deep interior of Mars, and make it the only planet – apart from Earth – that has been examined in this way.
The touchdown confirmation came through shortly after 19:50 GMT.
It ended an anxious few minutes in which the robot radioed home updates on its descent.
Nasa’s mission control in California erupted into cheers when it became clear InSight was safe on the ground.
The probe put down on a vast, flat plain known as Elysium Planitia, close to the Red Planet’s equator. The agency had dubbed it the “biggest parking lot on Mars”.

The first picture from the probe came back very quickly. It showed a smudged, fisheye view of Elysium Planitia.
The image was acquired with the translucent lens cap still in place on the camera. The dust kicked up in the landing obscured much of the view.
Better pictures will be taken in the coming days.

Touchdown triumph for Nasa's Mars probe

bbc.com What happened in the landing?
Media captionThe touchdown confirmation was celebrated by Nasa staff in California
Like all previous landing attempts at Mars, Insight’s race to the surface – the first attempt since 2012 – was a tense affair.
Stage by stage and metre by metre, the robot reported back its progress.
It had entered the atmosphere faster than a high-velocity bullet, using the combination of a heatshield, parachute and rockets to bring itself to a gentle stop.
Key to InSight’s continued survival now on the harsh surface of Mars is the deployment of its solar panels, which were stowed for the descent.
The robot absolutely has to start generating power to operate its systems and to warm equipment in the sub-zero temperatures that persist on the Red Planet.
Only when these immediate concerns are taken care of can Nasa begin to think about InSight’s scientific mission.

 bbc.com What is different about this mission?
This will be the first probe to dedicate its investigations to understanding Mars’ interior.
Scientists want to know how the world is constructed – from its core to its crust. InSight has three principal experiments to achieve this goal.
The first is a package of Franco-British seismometers that will be lifted on to the surface to listen for “Marsquakes”. These vibrations will reveal where the rock layers are and what they are made of.
A German “mole” will burrow up to 5m into the ground to take the planet’s temperature. This will give a sense of how active Mars still is.
And the third experiment will use radio transmissions to very precisely determine how the planet is wobbling on its axis. Deputy project scientist Suzanne Smrekar uses this analogy: “If you take a raw egg and a cooked egg and you spin them, they wobble differently because of the distribution of liquid in the interior. And today we really don’t know if the core of Mars is liquid or solid, and how big that core is. InSight will give us this information.”

 Touchdown triumph for Nasa's Mars probe

bbc.com Why do we need to know this?
Scientists understand very well how Earth’s interior is structured, and they have some good models to describe the initiation of this architecture at the Solar System’s birth more than 4.5 billion years ago. But Earth is one data point and Mars will give researchers a different perspective on how a rocky planet can be assembled and evolve through time.
InSight chief scientist Bruce Banerdt said: “The small details in how planets evolve are what we think make the difference between a place like Earth where you can go on vacation and get a tan, and a place like Venus where you’ll burn in seconds or a place like Mars where you’ll freeze to death.”

 Mars InSight: Beating the odds

 bbc.com nSight Diary: Beating the odds and landing on Mars
By Tom Pike Imperial College London 4 hours ago
Image copyright NASA Image caption Artwork: It takes 6.5 minutes to go from the top of the atmosphere to the surface
Prof Tom Pike from Imperial College London is part of the science team on the US-led InSight mission to Mars. His group has supplied tiny seismometers that will enable the Nasa lander to detect “Marsquakes”, which should show us the internal structure of the Red Planet. Here, just hours before InSight makes its bid to reach the surface of Mars, Prof Pike reveals his feelings.
As a scientist, I find it difficult to think that chance might play a role in achieving a breakthrough.
Napoleon is supposed to have asked “I know he’s a good general, but is he lucky?”
Any scientist would cringe if they thought they would be similarly questioned.
As for engineers, it would be regarded as an insult if their bridges or tunnels had to rely on luck not to collapse or cave in.
However, as we now wait for the InSight lander to hit the top of the atmosphere of Mars, I’m hoping for a bit of luck.

 InSight Steers Toward Mars

nasa.gov  NASA’s InSight lander has made its first course correction toward Mars.

InSight, short for Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport, is the first mission dedicated to exploring the deep interior of Mars.

The lander is currently encapsulated in a protective aeroshell, which launched on top of an Atlas V 401 rocket on May 5 from Vandenberg Air Force Base in Central California. Yesterday, the spacecraft fired its thrusters for the first time to change its flight path. This activity, called a trajectory correction maneuver, will happen a maximum of six times to guide the lander to Mars.

Every launch starts with a rocket. That’s necessary to get a spacecraft out past Earth’s gravity — but rockets don’t complete the journey to other planets. Before launch, every piece of hardware headed to Mars is cleaned, limiting the number of Earth microbes that might travel on the spacecraft. However, the rocket and its upper stage, called a Centaur, don’t get the same special treatment.

As a result, Mars launches involve aiming the rocket just off-target so that it flies off into space. Separately, the spacecraft performs a series of trajectory correction maneuvers guiding it to the Red Planet. This makes sure that only the clean spacecraft lands on the planet, while the upper stage does not come close.

Precise calculations are required for InSight to arrive at exactly the right spot in Mars’ atmosphere at exactly the right time, resulting in a landing on Nov. 26. Every step of the way, a team of navigators estimates the position and velocity of the spacecraft. Then they design maneuvers to deliver it to an entry point at Mars. That navigation team is based at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, which leads the InSight mission.

“This first maneuver is the largest we’ll conduct,” said Fernando Abilleira of JPL, InSight’s Deputy Mission Design and Navigation Manager. “The thrusters will fire for about 40 seconds to impart a velocity change of 3.8 meters per second [8.5 mph] to the spacecraft. That will put us in the right ballpark as we aim for Mars.”

Especially at the beginning of that cruise, navigators rely on NASA’s Deep Space Network (DSN) to track the spacecraft. The DSN is a system of antennas located at three sites around the Earth. As the planet rotates, each of these sites comes into range of NASA’s spacecraft, pinging them with radio signals to track their positions. The antennas also send and receive data this way.

The DSN can give very accurate measurements about spacecraft position and velocity. But predicting where InSight will be after it fires its thrusters requires lots of modeling, Abilleira said. As the cruise to Mars progresses, navigators have more information about the forces acting on a spacecraft. That lets them further refine their models. Combined with DSN tracking measurements, these models allow them to precisely drive the spacecraft to the desired entry point.

“Navigation is all about statistics, probability and uncertainty,” Abilleira said. “As we gather more information on the forces acting on the spacecraft, we can better predict how it’s moving and how future maneuvers will affect its path.”

Yesterday’s 40-second burn relies on four of eight thrusters on the spacecraft. A separate group of four is autonomously fired on a daily basis to keep the spacecraft’s solar panels trained on the Sun and its antennas pointed at Earth. While necessary to maintain orientation, these small, daily firings also introduce errors that navigators have to account for and counterbalance.

“Everyone has been working hard since launch to assess what these small forces have done to the trajectory,” said Allen Halsell of JPL, InSight’s navigation team chief. “People have worked lots of hours to look at that. For engineers, it’s a very interesting problem, and fun to try to figure out.”

When the spacecraft is just a few hours from Mars, the planet’s gravitational pull, or gravity well, will begin to reel the spacecraft in. At that point, InSight’s team will prepare for the next milestone after cruise: entering Mars’ atmosphere, descending to the surface and sticking InSight’s landing.

JPL, a division of Caltech in Pasadena, California, manages InSight for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington. InSight is part of NASA’s Discovery Program, managed by the agency’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. The InSight spacecraft, including cruise stage and lander, was built and tested by Lockheed Martin Space in Denver.

Is tourism harming Venice? | DW Documentary
DW Documentary
Published on Jul 2, 2018
Venice is threatened by mass tourism. Some 30 million visitors a year come to the city in Italy, making their way through the narrow streets. With an infrastructure more and more tailored to the needs of tourism, the city’s remaining residents feel left behind. During high season an influx of up to 130 thousand tourists a day means the city authorities have scant resources to cater for the more mundane needs of residents. A constant flotilla of small boats ferry passengers between city landing stages and giant cruise liners moored in the lagoon. Air quality in Venice is often worse than busy city centers. Within the last generation the number of residents has dropped by nearly a third. The Rialto Bridge and St Mark’s Square have become the main attractions in this Venetian Theme park providing locals with jobs in the tourist sector, but little else. Rents are sky high, Airbnb rules the roost. More and more historical buildings have been taken over by hotels. Shops, bars and restaurant cater almost exclusively to tourists. But residents are fighting back and now there are over 30 local initiatives trying to stem the tides of mass tourism. _____ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

Terms like friendship and love are complex as is and what if I brought a philosophy to understand them
PHILOSOPHY is the art of asking the right QUESTIONS and the answers will appear as good as your questions are. For some time now I have held that making friends was about TRAILS. Though this is still true, for after all we are friends with what is similar kind of human trash, it occurs to me what do you do to hold on to these friends. The concept of trail actually makes me a little SAD, for I had always held that making friends wasn’t about people who had done the same things and was the uninhibited joy of meeting and challenging minds.

It’s easy to understand how we get swayed by our own emotions unless we have a philosophy in place. We make friends based on our trails, things we have done, what we relate to and how we have encountered life. An interesting phenomena in trails is the Trails Criss cross or the meeting of trails from across the spectrum. When trails criss cross, the noises grow louder and it is time to make friends. The thought that looms large is what makes trails criss cross, is it contrived or a natural occurance.
The importance of simplifying things can’t be overstated, the genius is in knowing that you made an attempt for the moon and reached an asteroid midway ! : – ))

Little children, never give
Pain to things that feel and live;

Let the gentle robin come
For the crumbs you save at home;
As his meat you throw along
He’ll repay you with a song…

Today on the 29th of September 1901, Enrico Fermi was born. He was an Italian and naturalized-American physicist and the creator of the world’s first nuclear reactor, the Chicago Pile-1. He has been called the “architect of the nuclear age” and the “architect of the atomic bomb”.
He was one of the very few physicists in history to excel both theoretically and experimentally. Fermi held several patents related to the use of nuclear power and was awarded the 1938 Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on induced radioactivity by neutron bombardment and the discovery of transuranic elements. He made significant contributions to the development of quantum theory, nuclear and particle physics, and statistical mechanics.
He was known for

> Fermi–Dirac statistics
> Fermi’s golden rule
> Fermi paradox
> Fermi method
> Fermi theory of beta decay

“With the Thanksgiving holiday upon us, it’s a great time to reflect on the future of food. Over the last few years, we have seen a dramatic rise in exponential technologiestransforming the food industry from seed to plate. Food is important in many ways—too little or too much of it can kill us, and it is often at the heart of family, culture, our daily routines, and our biggest celebrations. The agriculture and food industries are also two of the world’s biggest employers. Let’s take a look to see what is in store for the future…”

From Ing-On Vibulbhan-Watts’s Google+ Community

The content of this post came from my Google+ site. I am thankful and appreciative of people who posted beautiful photographs and useful information in my community that I shared on my Google+ site. I decided to post the content from my Google+ site on the Blog page of my website, because the Google+ office had declared that the Google+ operation will be closed by August 2019. I am sorry it is happening because I just started to enjoy the fruitful contents posted by my community.
It has such a variety of knowledge, for example, Dirk Schonfeld posted, Street Art, from all over the world and he provides the information about the artwork that gives more meaning to the pictures in the posts. By doing so the viewers become students learning the different techniques and expressions from different countries. The people who posted their content then become teachers, providing knowledge to all the viewers.  

Anand Sarnkar, Fatima Sheikh posted Science and other subjects,  Danie van der Merwe posted, Green Tech and Environment, Greg Batmary Renewable Energy, Wasim Muklashy posted, Future Is Pretty Rad, Health and Wellness posted, Herbal Medicine, Neuroscience News, Medical News Today, NASA, and others posted about space tecnology. Viktor Elizarov posted photography subjects, Trey Ratcliff posted photographs from his travels, Michael Turtle posted photographs – Place that make you go WOW!, Candy Javier Sakai posted her photographs from Japan, Emily Moor posted Nutrition Basics, Terry McNeil posted food, funny subjects and others, Jean-Valentine Grigoras posted unusuael subjects, Manuel Caycedo posted Native American subjects, Birds of India- Bird World, and BackintheUSA posted Vintage American Images.
I contributed some of the posts of my Peace Project work, TED Talk, BBC News, and some of the technology programs on BBC Click, National Geographic, and, YouTube videos on different subjects.
Emma Elenusz posted My Country Romania and Others, Nick Mare, Malgorzata M., and from the, Wonders, site, Mohamed Saad, Jennny Loveva, Danne Wells, VNY, Peter H, Pradeep Shah, Elena “Ely” Roncoroni, Sally Elmakawi, Almas Ahmad, and a lot more people posted extra ordinary scenary from different countries, and adorable pictures of children and animals, especially cats and dogs. One of my favorite categories is, beautiful birds and gardens. Mrs. Roberta, our friend from Italy posted very educational photographs.
Johnny Stork and Ye Chen’s Blog post Philosophy comments, I also shared the posts of , Provocative Ideas, from Todd William’s site.
I apologize for those people whose names I did not mention, all of us contribute time and energy to make our community richer in a lots of ways.
I admire people who spend their time collecting all this information and pictures to post on the Google+ project. Everything comes and goes as time dictates, including us, humans. What remains is evidence of hard work that becomes history to record for future generations to understand and learn from our present generation.
Thanks to Google+ while it lasts. I am glad to know people from this country, USA, and other countries around the world through Google+. Hopefully we all will go on to operate our own websites, like mine, or go on to other new collective websites. We will not stop just because Google+ closes their operation. I hope we all will continue to do work in different ventures and find more enjoyable ways to contribute knowledge to society as a whole.

What does “Peace” mean to you? Comments
Organized by Heidi Russell
The following are some of the peace comments from the participants from the event:

- Peace is your choice. It’s what you make it.
- Peace is the light of the collective consciousness that shines from every human being and creature on earth.
- Peace is uplifting (heart shape).
- Peace ……… When words are not used,
When sitting still with another,
When hands soothe loneliness away,
When the bird sings,
When I sing a lullaby to a child

65 million people around the world fought in the war. Around five million of those were British.

Officially, you had to be 18 to sign up to the armed forces and 19 to serve abroad. However, the youngest British soldier was a 12-year-old who lied about his age.

8.5 million troops are thought to have been killed, including around 750,000 British servicemen.

21 million troops were wounded, of whom around 1.5 million were British.

12 million letters were delivered to the front every week. By the end of the war, two billion letters and 114 million parcels had been delivered.

 How technology can fight extremism and online harassment

 ted.com: Can technology make people safer from threats like violent extremism, censorship and persecution? In this illuminating talk, technologist Yasmin Green details programs pioneered at Jigsaw (a unit within Alphabet Inc., the collection of companies that also includes Google) to counter radicalization and online harassment — including a project that could give commenters real-time feedback about how their words might land, which has already increased spaces for dialogue. “If we ever thought that we could build an internet insulated from the dark side of humanity, we were wrong,” Green says. “We have to throw our entire selves into building solutions that are as human as the problems they aim to solve.”
This talk was presented at an official TED conference, and was featured by our editors on the home page.

This state of absolute cold is the zero-point on the Kelvin temperature scale, corresponding to -273.15 Celsius. Using lasers and magnetic fields, we’ve now managed to cool certain substances to less than a billionth of a Kelvin. Doing so has revealed some bizarre quantum states of matter. But quantum mechanics may also prevent us from ever reaching absolute zero. Understanding the limit to cold will lead us to an understanding of the nature of the quantum vacuum itself.

The road is long….but this poem is short

The road is long,
Singing my song,
Writing it down,
Hope you all,
Don’t frown,
Or maybe,
So,
Depends on,
My writing row
As long as it’s not,
Because it’s just,
So so,
Quiet birds,
Crackling lightning,
Is it a turd?
Got my fans,
A growing group,
Say Hi Ho,
Stay at the work,
Of spitting out,
Words that tork,
Your mind to me,
For just a second,
Thanks for the,
read.

I’m sure you’ve heard of the Camino de Santiago in Spain. But have you heard of the Shikoku Pilgrimage here in Japan?

In Japanese it’s called the ‘Henro’ and it’s a 1200km path that loosely follows the coast of Shikoku island and visits 88 Buddhist temples. Here in Kochi, I’ve seen a lot of people dressed as pilgrims in their white shirts and sedge hats.

I find it really inspiring and am thinking about doing the pilgrimage one day. Would you be interested in finding out more and maybe doing it yourself?
