Huge black holes might hide behind clouds of gas and dust in our cosmic backyard, writes British newspaper The Independent. Astronomers have found evidence of the existence of black holes in extremely high center of two galaxies surrounding the Milky Way: NGC 1448 and IC 3639. Now they are increasingly convinced that the biggest galaxies have black holes means such, but they are hidden. The two galaxies emit strong radiation and are considered active, but is far from Earth, one in 38 million light years, and is the other 170 so huge black holes are not yet a threat to our planet. How does a black hole A black hole forms when a massive star runs out of fuel and collapses into it. Then it produces a supernova, throwing into space part of the star's matter. The gravity of this "death st
A German firm has achieved international distinction "Home of the Future" for a heating system based on ice. New technology made the company Huf Haus and designed in collaboration with Viessmann was fired experimentally in a house presentation Wezbridge, Surrey (UK). Ice storage system offers a renewable energy source to heat or cool a building and for obtaining hot water. The system includes one or more tanks equipped with extraction technology and heat recovery that are filled with 10 cubic meters of water and installed in the ground. During the transformation of water into ice, the heat is captured and accumulated. A pool of this size generates heat equivalent results in about 100 liters of fuel. This innovative method based on a pond with ice and a solar panel, a source
The resolution to grant sophisticated robots with a high degree of autonomy, the legal status of being considered "electronic persons" was adopted by the Committee on Legal Affairs of the European Parliament, reports The Independent . #robotics Report adopted by Parliament includes a debate on the imposition of taxes for this type of robots. The report comes from the Luxembourg parliament Mady Delvaux and includes rules for defining of these individuals electronics, including interaction with humans. proprietors robots need to remember a hard and fast of guidelines that forbid any kind of damage finished to humans. "A robotic might not damage humanity, or, by means of inactivity, permit humanity to come back to harm," is the status of the robot. Delvaux also proposed a design that does
Blind people in the capital will be able to travel more easily by public transport, after 500 transport RATB will be made accessible using transmitters special will be transmitted via a mobile application, license number that comes into the station, informs Mediafax . The application that will allow blind people moving easier by public transport is developed within the project "Smart public transport" by Tandem Association in partnership with Vodafone Romania Foundation. Under the project, 500 vehicles of urban transport will be made accessible using special transmitters, called iBeacon sites, which will be transmitted via a mobile app, the number of means of transport arriving at the station. In this way, people with visual impairments in Bucharest can move around more easily by publi
Ten patients totally blind because of a genetic disease, retinitis pigmentosa, agreed to be implanted a bionic eye, an innovative technology that restores partial sight, writes "The Guardian". If the test is successful, the device, called the Argus II, could be widely used, changing thus people's lives. The procedure involves installing a camera in a pair of glasses, connected to a minicomputer which transmits signals directly to the nerves that control. A prosthesis is implanted on the retina which consists of an antenna, an electronic box and a set of electrodes. How does this work For starters, the patient wearing glasses fitted with cameras that record what's happening. The images are sent "computer" portal, where they are converted into instructions. They go wireless, to an ant
Head of the Chancellery of the Prime Minister, Dragos Tudorache, announced Wednesday that the level of Government, the Office of the Prime Minister, will appear post of coordinator for information technology. "There is a new position in the landscape of government, namely the coordinator for information technology. There was much talk in recent months on the coherence of investments in IT made in Romania in the space of the central government in recent years. Our finding, after studies made to the Ministry of Communications and coming from business: it is clear that many of these investments have been ad hoc, without a consistency of purpose that we define the purpose for which it's made that investment, the benefits of those systems iT bring to actually be the administration must w...
Sometime Earth had a completely different look than now: the continents of today, with their contours of which we are so familiar, did not exist. The entire land made up one huge meal: a supercontinent. Then it broke into pieces under the action colossal tectonic movements from the depths of the planet, and the pieces, moving away from each other, made up, finally, the current configuration, which recognize anytime on maps and globes. But what's more interesting is yet to come: some scientists say that this did not happen just once, but several times, especially going to happen. A few hundred million years, continental geography of the planet will be completely different than today and would come again supercontinents time ... So fragmentation supercontinents followed the movement a
Long before The Empire Strikes Back (Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back) before the United Federation of Planets (United Federation of Planets), Isaac Asimov created the Foundation (Foundation), epic story of the decline and fall of the Galactic Empire (Galactic Empire ). Asimov's Empire encompassed 25 million planets, traveling between them is performed using elegant spacecraft that crossed the galaxy. How do these spacecraft to travel huge distances between the stars? Moving through hyperspace, of course, as even Asimov Foundation explains: "Driving through ordinary space at speeds that did not exceed the speed of light could continue ... which would have meant that travel time to the nearest habitable stellar systems were of the order. Hyperspace, unimaginable region
Attract visitors and increase conversion are the main goals of the many who run a business online. Gabriel Shaoolian (founder of Blue Fountain Media, a company specializing in online marketing) believe that the first step to achieve online success starts with implementing a search engine optimization, combined with a effective strategy of choice keywords.
