Early SpaceX Starlink beta customers say they are ‘Streaming 4K with zero buffering’

Posted by in categories: internet, satellites

A few days ago, SpaceX started to offer Starlink satellite broadband internet service in areas located in the northern United States and southern Canada. With approximately 888 internet-beaming satellites in orbit the Starlink network is capable of providing ‘moderate’ broadband coverage. Early Starlink customers have shared photographs via social media of the Starlink Kit that is utilized to receive internet connection from the satellites in space. The Starlink Kit includes: “Dishy McFlatface” which is a 19-inch dish phased-array antenna, a mounting tripod for the dish, and an oddly-shaped Wi-Fi router device, pictured below.

Quantum-computing pioneer warns of complacency over Internet security

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, encryption, internet, quantum physics

Quantum computers are now a reality, although they are still too rudimentary to factor numbers of more than two digits. But it is only a matter of time until quantum computers threaten Internet encryption.

Nature caught up with Shor to ask him about the impact of his work — and where Internet security is heading.

Nature talks to Peter Shor 25 years after he showed how to make quantum computations feasible — and how they could endanger our data.

Scientists Cloned the Most Endangered Horse in the World—From 40-Year-Old DNA

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, genetics

Li’l Kurt is a genetic marvel.

In an effort to increase genetic diversity among horses, scientists have gone sci-fi and used frozen 40-year-old cells to create Kurt, the very first clone of a Przewalski’s horse.

Ladakh temperature drops to sub-zero, focus shifts to countering Chinese Navy

Posted by in category: military

With the onset of first snow and sub-zero temperatures in East Ladakh, the Indian Army troopers, equipped with US-made blizzard masks, have settled down for the winter against the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), with the focus of national security planners now shifting to beefing maritime security.

While the four-nation QUAD multilateral exercises under Malabar begin next Tuesday, the Indian military planners have decided to give top priority to Eastern Naval Command and island territories of Andaman and Nicobar Islands, and Lakshadweep to counter any threat from PLA Navy in Indian Ocean. The Western Naval Command has also been asked to spread out its assets with Karwar base in Karnataka as focus.

The plan follows a security assessment that pitched concern around China’s PLA Navy way over the maritime threat from the Pakistan Navy.

A new spin on atoms gives scientists a closer look at quantum weirdness

Posted by in categories: computing, particle physics, quantum physics

When atoms get extremely close, they develop intriguing interactions that could be harnessed to create new generations of computing and other technologies. These interactions in the realm of quantum physics have proven difficult to study experimentally due the basic limitations of optical microscopes.

Now a team of Princeton researchers, led by Jeff Thompson, an assistant professor of electrical engineering, has developed a new way to control and measure that are so close together no optical lens can distinguish them.

Described in an article published Oct. 30 in the journal Science, their method excites closely-spaced erbium atoms in a crystal using a finely tuned laser in a nanometer-scale optical circuit. The researchers take advantage of the fact that each atom responds to slightly different frequencies, or colors, of , allowing the researchers to resolve and control multiple atoms, without relying on their .
