  • FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb told Business Insider he is "100% certain" that it will be settled before he leaves the job in a few weeks. Gottlieb gave notice this month that he's resigning to spend more time with his family. 
  • The change "will effectively mean that they're not going to be sold in convenience stores in the way they're being sold right now," Gottlieb said. 

The US Food and Drug Administration will soon announce broad restrictions on where flavored e-cigarettes are sold, in an effort to prevent young people from taking up vaping.

The crackdown is intended to combat the surge in popularity of vaping devices like Juul among the under-18 crowd, and will be finalized before FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb steps down in the next few weeks, he told Business Insider during an interview about his departure from the post. He also hinted at "some other changes" aimed at curbing youth vaping. 

The change "will effectively mean that they're not going to be sold in convenience stores in the way they're being sold right now," Gottlieb told Business Insider. He didn't provide additional details on the plan.

"It's something that I will get settled before I leave the position," Gottlieb said. "I'm 100% certain that I'll get this settled before I leave."

The idea was first proposed in mid-November of last year, and Bloomberg News previously reported that the FDA would officially propose limits on sales of some flavored e-cigarettes this week. The original proposal would not affect flavors like tobacco, mint or menthol, in an effort to keep them available for adult smokers who may be trying to quit. 

Juul, an e-cigarette startup that is now partially owned by Marlboro maker Altria, banned retail sales of its fruit, creme, and mango flavors last fall, just before the FDA announced its intention to crack down on flavored e-cigarettes. The flavors are still available online, where customers have to verify that they are 21 or over.

In November, FDA also proposed the idea of banning menthol cigarettes and flavored cigars, which research suggests can also be a common on-ramp to smoking.

Gottlieb, who is a father of three, announced his resignation last week, saying he wanted to spend more time with his young family. He gave a month's notice. 

Advocates worried that Gottlieb's departure could undo progress on public health issues like youth vaping. E-cigarettes are seen as a way that young people get addicted to nicotine.

But Gottlieb told Business Insider on Tuesday that he was "very confident" that restriction on where e-cigarettes are sold would get out. 

He said he was also "very confident we’re going to be making some other changes to address the youth epidemic of e-cigarettes."

          Drug-price-comparison site GoodRx has quietly started listing startups that prescribe and ship pills alongside CVS and Walmart      Cache   Translate Page      

Pills

  • GoodRx, a website that helps consumers shop around for lower cash prices for their prescription drugs, quietly started offering online pharmacy options in its price comparisons.
  • GoodRx shows prices for your prescriptions at stores like CVS, Walgreens, and Walmart. Now, users might also see options to get their prescription through online healthcare startups like Hims or Roman, which can prescribe and ship medication to your door. 
  • The company is still experimenting with the model, but GoodRx CEO Doug Hirsh told Business Insider that the move has been popular so far. 

GoodRx, one of the oldest websites that lets people compare prices for prescription drugs, is adding in online upstarts to its list of prices. 

Alongside options to pick up prescriptions at pharmacies like CVS, Walgreens and Walmart, people shopping around for lower cash prices for their medications via GoodRx may have started to see an option to get their prescription delivered by mail.

GoodRx CEO Doug Hirsch told Business Insider that the reason it added online options is to help consumer get a better picture of all the ways they can get their medicine.

"We spend a lot of time trying to decrease the cost of healthcare," Hirsch said. "But if someone can make available more convenient and affordable ways to get prescriptions, that’s music to our ears."

GoodRx is best known for its work pulling together cash prices for medications at different pharmacies so those who don't have insurance or have to pay high prices out of pocket can have a cheaper alternative. Three years ago, it started reaching out to some of the startups that are prescribing medications online to see if they could work together. As more startups have entered the market, the number of partnerships has grown. 

GoodRx's move to include online, mail-order pharmacies happening at a time when consumers are getting more and more used to shopping online for everyday items like groceries and clothes. In 2018, Amazon acquired online pharmacy PillPack, cementing itself in the market. At the same time, seemingly overnight a crop of companies have sprung up that can prescribe and mail you medications like birth control and Viagra, creating a market for people looking to get a particular medication without going to an in-person doctor's visit.

Displayed alongside retail pharmacy prices, GoodRx users might see "mail order" options. For instance, a search for the generic form of Viagra in New York turns up three options at different price points, denoting which services can connect users to a doctor for a prescription. The idea is to present options side by side in a marketplace so consumers can make their own choices.

Screen Shot 2019 03 11 at 1.43.55 PM

Hirsch said GoodRx has been working with companies like Lemonaid, Nurx, Hims, Roman, HealthWarehouse, mailmyprescriptions.com, and Truepill.

In some cases, the outside companies are able to prescribe medications by connecting patients to doctors, while in the cases of Truepill and mailmyprescriptions.com, a prescription from an outside doctor is required. Truepill is the pharmacy that also powers many of the on-demand healthcare startups like Hims and Nurx.

While the program is still in the experimental phase, Hirsch said it's been catching on. 

"It's been very popular," Hirsch said. "We're driving traffic to each of these players now."

Otra precuela del 'Gran Apagón': la tormenta solar que sacudió el mundo el 660 a.C. hoy tendría consecuencias gravísimas#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Las auroras iluminaron América desde el norte de Canadá hasta Colombia, "el mar se convirtió en sangre" y las piedras de la playa, reflejando esa luz terrorífica, parecían ascuas en una hoguera. Si aquella semana de abril 1859, cuando ya sabíamos tanto sobre la naturaleza y sus misterios, muchos pensaron que había llegado el fin del mundo, no quiero imaginar el terror que sacudió el planeta durante la gran tormenta del 660 antes de Cristo.

En 2017, un grupo de investigadores identificaron un pico repentino de carbono-14 en varios árboles milenarios. Según sus conclusiones iniciales, algo había ocurrido en torno a ese año. Pero la evidencia era elusiva, encajaba con varios escenarios desde las señales de una supernova a una enorme tormenta solar.

Como seguro que habéis deducido, era esto último. Y de qué manera. "Si esa tormenta solar hubiera ocurrido hoy, habría tenido gravísimos efectos en nuestra sociedad tecnológica", explicaba Raimund Muscheler, profesor de Geología de la Universidad de Lund y autor principal de la investigación.

La gran tormenta del 660

Hubert Neufeld 568747 Unsplash

Muscheler tiene experiencia en estos temas, ya había colaborado en los trabajos para identificar la existencia de otras dos megatormentas solares sucedidas en los años 775 y 994 (después de Cristo). Así que, para darle sentido a ese pico de carbono-14, el equipo analizó unos enormes núcleos de hielo en Groenlandia con hielo formado durante los últimos 100.000 años.

Hemos hablado muchas veces de este tipo de eventos. El Sol emite de forma habitual gran cantidad de partículas cargadas, pero nuestro campo magnético nos protege de la mayor parte de ellas. A veces, cuando una tormenta supera cierto límite, el campo terrestre no es suficiente.

Es entonces cuando aparecen los picos de carbono-14 en los anillos de los árboles y cuando los bloques de hielo acumulan grandes cantidades de berilio-10 y de cloro-36. Por eso, Muscheler y su equipo estudiaron el hielo virgen groenlandés

¿Estamos preparados?

Spacex 71874 Unsplash

Allí, en las profundidades del hielo nórdico, encontraron efectivamente picos de berilio-10 y cloro-36 datados hacia la misma época que los picos de carbono-14. Es más, según sus conclusiones, se trata de una de las mayores tormentas solares de las que tenemos noticia: diez veces más potente que la de 1953, la única que hemos podido registrar con instrumentos modernos.

Es justo ahí cuando empieza la preocupación. En primer lugar, porque no está muy claro cómo de habituales son estos eventos. Y en segundo lugar porque ahora somos especialmente vulnerables a ellos. No solo es que nuestra tecnología pueda deshacerse ante una tormenta lo suficientemente grande, es que toda nuestra sociedad está construida sobre ella y cada vez tenemos menos sistemas de respaldo.

Cuando en 2008, la Academia Nacional de Ciencias de Estados Unidos estudió las consecuencias de un evento mucho menor que este del que hablamos, las conclusiones fueron bastante siniestras: conllevaría una interrupción sin precedentes en el metabolismo social, político y económico del mundo. Ahí es nada.

En los últimos años tanto EEUU como la Unión Europea han iniciado programas para evitar la catástrofe ante un "cisne negro" como este, pero estudios como el de Muscheler nos ponen de nuevo ante el espejo y nos obligan a reconocer que aún no hemos hecho lo suficiente.

Brian, Do you think I don't know that ? The point I am making is that in many places in this vast land, a "hopper" is what you deposit excrement in. When things plans fail, they end up in "the hopper". Which leads to my original point, from a PR standpoint, it's a lousy name with negative baggage.

Hopper is referring to a grass hopper that hops, hence the original Falcon 9 first stag test vehicle tests in McGregor were short hops leading to progressively bigger hops. They just shortened Grass Hopper to Hopper is all.

马斯克火箭炸出神秘中企 其董事长曾想挖尼加拉瓜大运河-搜狐财经 猎鹰9号爆炸现场   SpaceX炸毁的卫星来自于以色列通信卫星运营商Space Communication(TASE:SCC)。就在爆炸前一周,来自中国的信威集团(600485)刚刚披露,拟以2.85亿美元的交易对价收购SCC公司100%股份。受爆炸影响,SCC的市值也出现缩水,这意味着收购的代价有望进一步降低。   来自路透社的消息,绝境中的SCC公司已对SpaceX发起索赔,要求其赔偿5000万美金,或者以一次免费发射作为交换。SCC同时对Amos-6号卫星的建造商发起赔偿,要求其建造商IAI(Israel Aircraft industries,以色列航空航天工业公司)赔偿预付的2.05亿美元。   在爆炸发生后的第二天,信威集团(600485)立即向上交所申请紧急停牌,并在9月5日旋即复牌。复牌后,信威集团的股价在9月5日微跌,但在9月6日又实现了小幅上扬,涨幅为2.45%。   爆炸事件是否会影响收购?信威集团投资者关系部门相关人士告诉澎湃新闻()具体信息将在不久后再发公告,目前可以公开的消息是交易尚未交割,且由于兼并协议中对 Amos-6卫星的发射情况进行了约定,所以这次发射损失并没有影响到信威集团的财务状况。   Facebook和信威为何同时看上SCC?拥有稀缺的卫星轨位资源   在爆炸发生前一周的8月24日,中国信威集团发布公告称,拟通过其旗下的全资子公司卢森堡空天通信公司在以色列设立大鸟项目有限公司,并将以2.85亿美元的交易对价收购SCC公司100%股份。   信威集团总部位于北京,是一家目前总市值五百多亿的中国民营科技企业,以研发通信技术标准起家。信威集团成立于1995 年11 月,原为大唐集团旗下核心资产,先后创造了SCDMA、TD-SCDMA和McWiLL三大国家和国际无线通信技术标准。其基于SCDMA研发的“大灵通”系统,曾帮助固网运营商推出了移动通信业务。   2007年至2009年信威集团连续亏损。2010年公司进行股权重组,大唐集团减持退出,当还不到四十岁的神秘富豪王靖豪掷数亿接盘,至此,信威集团由国有控股企业转身为民营控股企业。目前,信威集团注册资本22.67 亿元人民币,旗下企业四十多家。   2013年,信威集团第一次走入全球公众视野。当时信威集团董事长王靖宣布,他旗下的HKND公司(香港尼加拉瓜运河开发投资有限公司)要在中美洲中部尼加拉瓜开凿尼加拉瓜大运河,这条运河连接大西洋和太平洋,全长276公里,是另一条连接大西洋和太平洋的巴拿马运河长度的三倍。运河建成之后,HKND集团将拥有100年经营权。   然而,2015年11月,HKND集团却突然宣布尼加拉瓜跨洋运河项目的开工将被推迟。   除了连接海洋的事业,王靖对“天空”的兴趣来得更早。2010年,信威集团在改制重组完成后就低调地启动了空天信息战略,致力于打造低轨卫星星座系统。2014年,通过借壳中创信测,信威成功登陆A股市场,同年还成功发射了自己的首颗试验卫星。两年后,信威又拿下了尼加拉瓜通信卫星项目,迈出了卫星技术商用化第一步。   此次如果能顺利收购SCC,信威运营的卫星将覆盖95%的世界主要人口分布区域,成为为数不多的几乎覆盖全球的卫星运营商。   同信威一样,Facebook对空天信息领域的介入也由来已久。扎克伯格的Internet计划需要借助SCC公司的Amos-6号卫星,来拓展其在互联网基础设施落后的非洲地区的业务。除了看中SCC所能提供的Ka频段的宽带卫星通信技术可以使连接带宽成本极大降低之外,与SCC合作更吸引人的地方在于它所拥有的稀缺的轨道资源,这也是SCC同时得到Facebook和信威青睐的主要原因。   卫星轨道资源是一种有限的、不可再生的自然资源。由于卫星在运行过程中必须使用外层空间的某个轨道位置,故随着空间技术的发展和卫星应用的大量增加,卫星频轨资源日益紧张。卫星运行的轨道位置有位于赤道上空、距地面高度为35786公里的地球静止轨道(GEO),也有距地面几百到1000公里左右的低轨道位置(LEO)和距地面10000公里左右的中轨道位置(MEO)。不管是地球静止轨道位置还是其他轨道位置,资源都是有限的。相关的主题文章: 并干净利落轰单杆93分 温碧霞走出婚变 火车冲撞站台事故 403位 美国水兵南海失踪 收费员与司机僵持 Avoid Loss Of Data And Fatalities With Uninterrupted Power Supplies.

          NASA планирует отправить экспедиции на Луну в 2028 году      Cache   Translate Page      

"Бюджет NASA на 2020 финансовый год один из самых сильных за всю историю нашего агентства. Этот бюджет составляет $21 млрд, что на 6% больше, чем в прошлом году, и сформирован во время ограниченных ресурсов федерального правительства", - отметил Бриденстайн.

Половина из бюджета ($10,7 млрд) будет направлена на освоение Луны.

Агентство планирует до 2028 г. 14 коммерческих запусков кораблей SpaceX Crew Dragon и Boeing Starliner и 5 экспедиций астронавтов на корабле Orion.

Лунная экспедиция США стартует с Земли в 2028 г. Американские астронавты создадут базу на Луне и начнут ее освоение. Затем США намерены освоить Марс.

Это будет первый полет астронавтов США на Луну, с тех пор как 14 ноября 1969 г. состоялся запуск "Аполлона-12", и 19 ноября 1969 г. американцы во второй раз высадились на Луне.

"Мы отправимся на Луну в следующем десятилетии с инновационными, новыми технологиями и системами, чтобы исследовать больше мест на поверхности Луны, чем когда-либо прежде. На этот раз, когда мы отправимся на Луну, мы останемся. Мы будем использовать то, что узнаем, чтобы совершить следующий гигантский прыжок - отправку астронавтов на Марс", - подчеркнул глава NASA.

США планируют использовать собственные ракеты-носители и технологии.

"Этот бюджет базируется на наших успехах на околоземной орбите и позволит создать программу исследований, которая объединяет опыт NASA с опытом наших коммерческих и международных партнеров, - заявил Бриденстайн. - Мы впервые с 2011 г. запустим американских астронавтов на американских ракетах".

США разрабатывают сверхтяжелую ракету SLS, пилотируемый корабль Orion и лунную орбитальную станцию Gateway. Это базовые элементы освоения Луны и Марса.

Программа Gateway получит $821 млн, что почти вдвое больше, чем было выделено в 2019 г.

"Начиная с серии небольших коммерческих миссий на Луну уже в 2028 г., мы будем использовать новые корабли, роботов и в конечном итоге людей к 2028 г., чтобы проводить научные исследования всей лунной поверхности", - заявил глава NASA.

NASA также намерено отправить миссии на спутник Юпитера - Европу и космический телескоп Джеймса Уэбба, первую экспедицию на Марс.

Впервые космонавты высадились на спутнике Земли в 1969 г. - 16 июля стартовал корабль "Аполлон-11" с Нилом Армстронгом и Баззом Олдрином, а 20 июля они высадились на Луне.

Good morning! This is the tech news you need to know this Wednesday.

  1. Google told dozens of employees in its laptop and tablet division to find new jobs at the company, raising questions about its hardware plans. The restructuring involves Google's "Create" division, which is responsible for developing and manufacturing the Pixelbook laptop and Pixel Slate tablet amongst the company's wider swath of "Made by Google" products.
  2. A leaked email revealed that Elon Musk must approve all new Tesla hires. The email also suggests that Tesla has introduced higher standards for hiring.
  3. Tesla laid off 150 recruitment workers as part of its broader cost cutting. The layoffs amounted to about one-third of the team, according a report from Electrek.
  4. Huawei got caught passing off a professional image as a photo taken with its new flagship phone. Images uploaded to Huawei's Weibo account seemed to show the P30's camera in action, but they were actually stock photos taken with a DSLR.
  5. Uber is paying $20 million to end a six-year legal battle with drivers. The drivers argue they should be considered employees rather than contractors, and are there fore eligible for benefits of full-time staff.
  6. President Trump responded to Sen. Elizabeth Warren's proposal to break up big tech companies like Amazon, Facebook, and Google. Trump said there was "collusion between the Democrats and these tech companies" during the 2016 election.
  7. Bernie Sanders renewed his war with Amazon over working conditions for its lowest paid employees. Sanders previously demanded that Amazon raise its minimum wage, which it did in November last year.
  8. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said society has a "Facebook problem" following reports that ads from Sen. Warren were blocked by Facebook. Facebook acknowledged that it had removed the ads and reinstated them, saying it had taken them down due to improper use of its logo.
  9. Netflix will "double down" on interactive content like 'Black Mirror: Bandersnatch' in other genres, like comedy or romance. "Bandersnatch" allowed viewers to make decisions throughout the movie, and had over a trillion unique story permutations.
  10. "Apex Legends" has banned more than 350,000 players for cheating during its first month online. Other popular battle royale games have had issues with third-party hacks and cheaters too; "Fortnite" sued a pair of YouTubers for selling cheat software last year.

          Próxima pessoa a pisar na Lua e a primeira a ir para Marte serão mulheres      Cache   Translate Page      

O único mundo além da Terra em que a humanidade colocou os pés até hoje foi a Lua — o que aconteceu somente com as missões Apollo no final da década de 1960 e até meados dos anos 1970. Desde então, tanto a NASA quanto as demais agências espaciais do mundo se dedicaram a estudar o restante do Sistema Solar, também lançando telescópios espaciais para estudar o restante do universo e também investindo pesado na presença de astronautas no espaço, especificamente na órbita da Terra com a Estação Espacial Internacional (ISS). Agora é hora de não somente retornar à Lua — com a NASA pretendendo levar pessoas para lá de novo no ano de 2028 —, como também levar a exploração espacial a um outro patamar fincando os pés em outros planetas, como Marte.

Não é de hoje que a NASA vem falando sobre seus planos de levar astronautas ao Planeta Vermelho, e é fato que isso ainda não aconteceu tanto por limitações tecnológicas e financeiras, quanto por ainda não sabermos exatamente quais são os riscos à saúde e à vida desses primeiros colonizadores espaciais. Mas também é fato que a ciência vem trabalhando incansavelmente para transformar esse sonho em realidade, e Jim Bridenstine, atual administrador da agência espacial dos Estados Unidos, está falando mais sobre o programa Moon to Mars, pelo qual a agência não somente retornará à Lua, como usará nosso satélite natural como uma "paradinha no meio da estrada" a caminho de Marte.

Em entrevista concedida nesta semana, Bridenstine garante que, nesta próxima ida à Lua, desta vez "não vamos deixar bandeiras e pegadas e depois não voltar por mais 50 anos", pois a ideia é que esse retorno lunar seja feito de maneira sustentável. Ele segue dizendo que "desta vez, quando formos, vamos para ficar, o que significa que precisamos de parceiros comerciais e parceiros internacionais". Bem, isso já está acontecendo, pois, além da NASA, agências espaciais como a europeia ESA e a chinesa CNSA também têm seus planos de levar astronautas à Lua, e há várias empresas privadas com planos ambiciosos em relação ao nosso satélite natural, dispostas a trabalhar em conjunto com as agências espaciais estatais — e uma delas é a SpaceX, que já é parceira da NASA no envio de cargas à ISS e acaba de realizar o primeiro voo de teste com a nave Crew Dragon, que no ano que vem levará astronautas à estação espacial no lugar da nave russa Soyuz. Ainda, a SpaceX tem foguetes reutilizáveis, que tornam os lançamentos mais baratos, o que será crucial para manter a presença humana constante no espaço.

Voltando ao retorno da humanidade à Lua, desta vez, pode ser que falar sobre "o homem na Lua" seja algo bastante equivocado, já que Bridenstine disse, na entrevista, que "é provável que seja uma mulher a primeira pessoa a retornar à Lua e é verdade que a primeira pessoa a ir para Marte provavelmente será uma mulher". Vale ressaltar que, no final de março, a primeira caminhada espacial feita apenas por astronautas mulheres acontecerá no exterior da ISS. "Estamos ansiosos pela primeira mulher na Lua", disse o administrador.

Bridenstine também falou sobre o Space Launch System (SLS), novo e poderoso foguete que a NASA vem desenvolvendo há vários anos e que, na verdade, já deveria estar pronto. Mesmo que com o orçamento previsto para o ano fiscal de 2020 somente seja possível construir a versão menos potente do SLS, ele ainda assim será mais capaz do que os melhores foguetes da atualidade. Contudo, ele não é reutilizável, e seu custo por lançamento é muito superior ao custo de voos com foguetes da SpaceX, que já virou especialista em foguetes reutilizáveis.

Sendo assim, a construção da estação Gateway, que ficará na órbita da Lua e será essencial para a presença constante da humanidade em nosso satélite natural, servindo também como pit stop para futuras viagens espaciais (como a para Marte, como parte do programa Moon to Mars), dependerá dos foguetes da SpaceX, provavelmente, com o SLS não sendo usado nessa empreitada. "Precisamos de um foguete poderoso para colocar isso em prática e precisamos da capacidade de reutilização para reduzir o custo e aumentar o acesso à superfície da Lua", declarou Bridenstine.


          O céu (não) é o limite | O que está rolando na ciência e astronomia (12/03/2019)      Cache   Translate Page      

O comecinho da semana passada foi marcado pelo Carnaval, e com o feriadão nosso resumo semanal de notícias científicas deu espaço para todo mundo curtir bastante as festas e bloquinhos de rua. Então, nesta semana decidimos fazer um apanhado com os principais acontecimentos da ciência e da astronomia que rolaram desde antes da festança popular, para que você fique por dentro de tudo o que importa nessas áreas que nos deslumbram e fascinam tanto.

Sonda soviética cairá na Terra

Em algum momento de 2019, mais tardar em meados de 2020, a sonda Kosmos 482 cairá na Terra. Enviada ao espaço pela União Soviética em 1972, a sonda tinha como objetivo estudar o planeta Vênus, mas falhou após o lançamento e nunca conseguiu sair da órbita da Terra. Contudo, o artefato vem sendo atraído pela gravidade do planeta gradativamente, e acabará, fatalmente, colidindo aqui.

A sonda era irmã da Venera 8, esta que conseguiu chegar ao planeta Vênus e completar sua rápida missão por lá. Partes da Kosmos 482 acabaram se soltando com o tempo no espaço e já entraram na nossa atmosfera, sendo queimadas ali mesmo e sem risco de colisão com o solo. Contudo, cerca de 500 quilos de material remanescente permanece na órbita, caindo em alta velocidade. É improvável que toda a quantidade de material existente na sonda seja queimada ao reentrar na atmosfera, pois o satélite foi construído com um escudo térmico reforçado (afinal, a ideia era que a sonda sobrevivesse à extremamente quente superfície de Vênus) — então, alguma coisa acabará, sim, se chocando contra a Terra, e ainda não se sabe se o choque acontecerá em terra firme ou no mar.

Primeiros satélites da OneWeb são lançados

A OneWeb pretende criar uma frota de quase 2 mil satélites na órbita da Terra com o objetivo de fornecer internet banda larga a pessoas em qualquer parte do mundo. E os seis primeiros satélites já foram lançados. De acordo com a empresa, 600 satélites serão suficientes nesta primeira fase do projeto, com o objetivo final de criar a frota completa com quase 2 mil unidades. A OneWeb está fazendo esses lançamentos em parceria com a Roscosmos (a agência espacial russa) e a Arianespace (empresa espacial privada), em um negócio que envolve quase US$ 1 bilhão.

Chip detecta câncer em uma gota de sangue

Um novo dispositivo de saúde está sendo testado, mas estudos iniciais já mostraram que ele é capaz de detectar se o paciente tem algum tipo de câncer apenas analisando uma gota de sangue. O chip detecta células e proteínas indicadoras de câncer no organismo e foi criado com nanoengenharia 3D, e a notícia melhor ainda é que o dispositivo, além de eficaz, tem relativo baixo custo.

Raro caso de irmãos gêmeos semi-idênticos

Na Austrália, um par de gêmeos tem uma característica extremamente rara: eles são gêmeos semi-idênticos, compartilhando exatamente o mesmo DNA do lado da mãe, mas apenas uma parte dos genes do pai. Este é o segundo caso do tipo já descoberto, e o primeiro a ser identificado durante a gravidez.

Essa classe de gêmeos é chamada de gêmeos sesquizigóticos, um meio termo entre gêmeos fraternos e idênticos. Gêmeos fraternos surgem quando dois espermatozóides diferentes fertilizam dois óvulos diferentes, criando, então, dois zigotos diferentes na mesma gestação. Já gêmeos idênticos surgem quando um espermatozóide fertiliza um óvulo, mas o zigoto se divide em dois embriões, ambos compartilhando a mesma mistura genética da mãe e do pai. Neste caso raríssimo que aconteceu na Austrália, os cientistas teorizam que dois espermatozóides fertilizaram simultaneamente o mesmo óvulo. Esse tipo de fertilização normalmente resulta em abortos espontâneos.

Nave Crew Dragon voa pela primeira vez

A SpaceX realizou com sucesso o primeiro voo de teste, não tripulado, com a nave Crew Dragon, que chegou à Estação Espacial Internacional e voltará à Terra no final desta semana. O sucesso do lançamento e de sua acoplagem autônoma na ISS marca o verdadeiro início do Commercial Crew Program da NASA, pelo qual a agência espacial dos EUA transportará astronautas à estação espacial a partir do próximo ano. Desde 2011, a NASA depende dos russos da Roscosmos para esse transporte.

O primeiro voo tripulado com a Crew Dragon acontecerá em junho, caso o teste de aborto de missão também seja bem sucedido em abril. Outra empresa que está nessa jogada é a Boeing, que testará sua nave Starliner em abril sem tripulação, e com passageiros em agosto.

E Elon Musk, CEO d SpaceX, também quer que sua Crew Dragon seja usada no turismo espacial, sendo capaz de transportar até sete passageiros por viagem. A russa Roscosmos tem os mesmos planos para sua nave Soyuz, esta que, hoje, ainda faz o transporte de astronautas à ISS.

Dois pacientes curados do vírus HIV

Primeiro, a ciência revelou que um segundo paciente teria sido curado do vírus HIV em um momento histórico para a humanidade. Apenas dois dias depois, foi revelado que um terceiro paciente também havia sido curado.

O tratamento envolveu transplante de medula óssea e os pacientes não apresentaram mais traços do vírus em seu organismo após o procedimento, que ainda é experimental. Este terceiro paciente já está há três meses sem tomar os medicamentos antivirais que tomava anteriormente, e biópsias feitas com coletas de material do intestino e dos gânglios linfáticos dele não mostraram mais nenhum sinal da presença do vírus. Outros dois pacientes passaram pelo mesmo tratamento, mas ainda estão tomando os medicamentos — contudo, é possível que em breve sejam anunciados mais dois casos de "cura da AIDS", quando eles pararem de tomar a medicação e se seus exames também mostrarem que não há mais indícios do vírus em seus organismos.

De qualquer forma, é preciso cautela no momento antes de afirmar que o procedimento realmente elimina o vírus do sistema dos pacientes. É possível que os dois casos anunciados estejam ainda em remissão, e outros testes e exames serão conduzidos no futuro próximo para descobrir se o vírus realmente está sendo eliminado do sistema desses pacientes.

Base de Alcântara será usada para lançamentos comerciais

Depois de quase 20 anos de negociações frustradas, enfim o Brasil bateu o martelo com os Estados Unidos para que a nossa base de Alcântara, no Maranhão, seja usada também de forma comercial, sobretudo no lançamento de satélites, aproveitando a localização privilegiada da base — o que permite economia de dinheiro em lançamentos.

O acordo prevê proteção de tecnologias norte-americanas, mas isso não significa que os EUA controlarão a nossa base, pois esse espaço continua sendo de jurisdição brasileira. Ainda, o Programa Espacial Brasileiro poderá usar recursos obtidos pelo uso comercial da base em seus projetos futuros. O novo acordo tem duração de um ano e deve ser firmado de maneira oficial quando o presidente Jair Bolsonaro se encontrar com Donald Trump nos EUA, o que vai acontecer no próximo dia 19 de março.

          Nave israelí Beresheet se tira el primer “selfie” espacial en su trayecto a la Luna      Cache   Translate Page      

La primera sonda espacial israelí, Beresheet, ha marcado otro hito importante: el primer selfie de una nave espacial.

“En la foto de la Tierra, tomada durante un lento giro de la nave, Australia es claramente visible”, escribieron los miembros del equipo de la misión en una descripción de la imagen ayer 5 de marzo. “También se ve la placa instalada en la nave, con la bandera israelí y las inscripciones ‘Am Yisrael Chai’ y ‘Small Country, Big Dreams’”.

La frase hebrea “Am Yisrael chai” se traduce como “La nación de Israel vive” o “El pueblo de Israel vive”.

Beresheet también tomó otra selfie casi al mismo tiempo. Esta otra foto muestra una pequeña franja de tierra que se asoma por encima del cuerpo de la nave espacial.

Este proyecto del grupo sin fines de lucro SpaceIL y de la compañía Israel Aerospace Industries, lanzó a la órbita terrestre sobre un cohete SpaceX Falcon 9 el 21 de febrero. El módulo de aterrizaje ya realizó dos quemaduras de motor, empujando su camino más cerca de la luna.

Varias de esas maniobras están programadas en un futuro próximo. Si todo va según lo planeado, Beresheet, que significa “al principio” en hebreo, será capturado en la órbita lunar el 4 de abril y luego descenderá suavemente sobre la superficie de la luna el 11 de abril.

          Watch: SpaceX Crew Dragon Splashes Down In Atlantic Ocean      Cache   Translate Page      
Updated at 10 a.m. ET The SpaceX Crew Dragon hit its splashdown time of 8:45 a.m. ET right on target Friday, landing in the Atlantic Ocean after undocking from the International Space Station and re-entering Earth's atmosphere. The successful test and splashdown is "an amazing achievement in American history," said NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine, who called the SpaceX flight the "dawning of a new era in American human space flight." The splashdown was closely monitored at SpaceX's mission control in Hawthorne, Calif., where parachute deployments and other developments brought whoops of celebration. The yells then turned into roars of cheering applause after Crew Dragon finally hit the water safely and well within sight of its recovery boats off the Florida coast. The Atlantic Ocean landing is the first in nearly 50 years for a capsule that was designed for humans, NASA says. The last such incident: the Apollo 9 splashdown on March 13, 1969. Here's NASA's order of events for Friday
          The latest yield curve inversion is yet another warning in the bond market — an expert says it's one of 'four horsemen' predicting recession      Cache   Translate Page      

traders

  • The five-year US Treasury note yield has been lower than the three-month Treasury bill yield since March 7, a key recessionary signal if it stays this way for a full quarter. 
  • Its part of a model which sees four leading indicators of recession align, alongside weakening CFO confidence, increased market volatility, and greater protectionism. 
  • Recessions are expected to occur every 58 months but it has been 118 since the last recession, increasing the likelihood of a downturn in the US economy. 

The alarm in the bond market first rang in December, when the US three- and five-year Treasury yields "inverted" a signal from credit markets than can often predict recessions. 

Now, there's another alarm: The five-year US Treasury note yield has been lower than the three-month Treasury bill yield since March 7. If that persists for a quarter, it could spell trouble. 

"This is a measure that empirically leads to other economic information," Campbell Harvey, professor of finance at Duke University's Fuqua School of Business, said in an interview with Business Insider.

The latest curve inversion is what Harvey calls one of "four horsemen" predicting potential recession. Here they are:

  • Weakening CFO confidence
  • Increased market volatility
  • Higher anti-growth protectionism
  • A quarter-long inversion in the three-month and five-year Treasury yield curves

What's so worrying about a yield curve? A flat or negative yield curve suggests investors believe keeping your money in short-term bonds is more uncertain than bonds that pay off much later. If the long-term horizon looks riskier than the short-term one, it's a sign something's amiss in the economy.  

The a key recessionary signal if it stays this way for a full quarter.

When the yield curve inverts – meaning short-term interest rates are higher than long-term rates for at least a full quarter – recession tends to occur within 12 to 18 months.

The same happened with three- and five-year spreads for the first time in 11 years in December. Concerns about global growth slowing and higher interest rates, coupled with simmering trade-war tensions, are thought to be behind the inversions.

The yield curve inverted between the two- and 10-year yield before the recessions of 1981, 1991, 2000, and 2008. It has preceded all nine US recessions since 1955.

Another horseman is CFO confidence which indicates to greater recessionary fears according to the latest Duke-CFO survey. The study found that half of CFOs are planning on a recession at the end of 2019 or first part of 2020. 82% believe a recession will start by the end of 2020.

"CFOs are planning capital expenditure and other investments many quarters in advance and market uncertainty will impact their thinking," he said.

Growing anti-growth protectionism, in the form of the US-China trade war and Brexit, are other key markers as is increased market volatility over the past 12 months. The VIX, a leading market fear barometer, spiked in December but has subsequently declined in recent months. 

Recessions are expected to occur every 58 months in the modern era, according to Harvey, but it has been 118 since the last recession increasing the likelihood of a downturn in the US economy. The yield curve inversion needs to stay in place until the end of June to indicate a recession will occur in the following nine to 18 months.

          10 things you need to know before the opening bell (SPY, SPX, QQQ, DIA, BA, TSLA)      Cache   Translate Page      

Brexit

Here is what you need to know.

  1. 2 key Brexit votes are coming. Prime Minister Theresa May plans to hold two important votes this week — Wednesday's will ask MPs whether they support a no-deal Brexit and Thursday's will ask whether they support delaying Britain's exit from the European Union by extending Article 50.
  2. The UK would get rid of 87% of its tariffs in the event of a no-deal Brexit. The UK would also waive checks at the Irish border, the government confirmed Wednesday.
  3. Trump's tax cuts are actually doing what they were intended to do. President Donald Trump's tax cuts have received criticism for giving US corporations cash to buy back their own shares, but Goldman Sachs says companies are also using that money to invest in growth.
  4. Boeing has lost $40 billion of market value this month. Shares have sunk nearly 15% from their March 1 close, with 11% of that coming after Sunday's Ethiopian Airlines disaster — the second crash involving a Boeing 737 Max 8 in five months.
  5. One expert has formulated the perfect risk-free hedge for Boeing's stock. Vinay Viswanathan, a derivatives strategist at Macro Risk Advisors, recommends a capped-risk-reversal options strategy to limit further losses in Boeing shares.
  6. Elon Musk approves all Tesla hires. Leaked emails seen by Business Insider said that "all headcount requests from the business must get Elon approval."
  7. A private-equity exec was put on leave after being charged in the college-admissions scandal. The private-equity firm TPG has placed Bill McGlashan, the founder of its TPG Growth and the Rise Fund, on leave after he was indicted by the FBI in connection to a scheme to get students into elite colleges.
  8. Stock markets around the world are mixed. China's Shanghai Composite (-1.09%) trailed in Asia, and France's CAC (+0.19%) led in Europe. The S&P 500 was set to open up 0.15% near 2,796.
  9. Earnings reports trickle out. MongoDB reports after the closing bell.
  10. US economic data keeps coming. PPI and durable-goods orders will cross the wires at 8:30 a.m. ET, and construction spending will be released at 10 a.m. ET. The US 10-year yield was up 1.8 basis points at 2.62%.

          Brexit is a shambles and here's all the damage that's already been done      Cache   Translate Page      

City of London

  • Banks and financial firms that make up about 6.5% of Britain's GDP have already taken precautionary measures to prep for Brexit, meaning a lot of damage is already done.
  • Banking is just the tip of the iceberg with many other industries also making irrevocable decisions

The damage to the economy from Brexit is already afoot — so much so that the act of leaving the EU itself is, at this point, increasingly irrelevant.

Uncertainty mounted with Prime Minister Theresa May's landslide defeat on her Brexit deal on Tuesday. But even before that, leaders of companies with UK operations haven't been taking any chances. The latest wound: Nissan announced Tuesday that it will stop manufacturing its premium Infiniti model at its plant in Sunderland later this year.

It follows a decision earlier this year by Nissan to cancel plans to build its new sport utility vehicles at the plant. The original decision would have created 740 new jobs. 

Honda also announced last month it would close its plant in the UK by 2021 causing the loss of around 3,500 jobs. 

Brexit is increasingly fraught with uncertainty after the UK's parliament rejected Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal for the second time Tuesday.

The impact on the City of London could be especially damaging — financial services, heavily concentrated in the capital, account for 6.5% of Britain's GDP.

Read More: The closer the UK gets to Brexit the more the country regrets it, polls show

The winner so far has been other European banking hubs. A Frankfurt lobby group has claimed that between €750 billion to €800 billion ($911 billion) in financial assets and claims 10,000 jobs will move to the German city by the time Britain leaves the European Union on March 29.

These moves won't be undone, even if Brexit were somehow cancelled. 

"I don't believe Brexit can be a trigger for a financial crisis or a banking crisis," Sergio Ermotti, CEO of Swiss investment firm UBS, told Bloomberg back in September. "But it could undermine investments, and trigger maybe a slowdown in the economy. That's clear."  

Here's a roundup of the financial exodus so far: 

  • US bank giants Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan, Morgan Stanley, and Citigroup have moved 250 billion euros ($283 billion) of balance-sheet assets to Frankfurt because of Brexit
  • Bank of America is spending $400 million to move staff and operations in anticipation of Brexit, and is trying to persuade London staff to move to Paris. 
  • Barclays last week won permission to shift assets worth £166 billion ($216 billion) to its Irish division. Barclays is set to become Ireland's biggest bank
  • France's BNP Paribas, Credit Agricole, and Societe Generale have opted to transfer 500 staff out of London to Paris. 
  • UBS has chosen German financial center Frankfurt for its new EU headquarters. 
  • Swiss peer Credit Suisse is moving 250 jobs to Germany, Madrid, and Luxembourg among other EU 27 countries as well as $200 million from its market division to Germany. And in December Credit Suisse told its wealthiest clients to hurry and move their money out of the UK before Brexit.
  • Germany's Deutsche Bank is also considering shifting large volumes of assets to Frankfurt as part of its Brexit plan.
  • HSBC, Europe's biggest bank, has shifted ownership of many of its European subsidiaries from its London-based entity to its French unit.
  • Australia's largest bank by assets, Commonwealth Bank of Australia, has set in motion plans to base around 50 staff in Amsterdam, and has applied for a banking licence in the country.
  • Other Australian lenders Macquarie, Westpac, and ANZ are also in talks to move operations to Dublin and continental Europe. 
  • Europe’s biggest repo trading venue, called BrokerTec, is being moved to Amsterdam from London, meaning a $240 billion a day repo business is leaving the UK. 
  • More than 100 UK-based asset managers and funds have applied to the Irish central bank for authorization in Ireland.

The impact of these changes will see less tax revenue for the government, fewer jobs, and a dent in dealmaking, taking a shine off the City's luster.

And that's just financial services.

A British parliamentary report also recently announced that the UK had lost out on €5 billion ($5.7 billion) in infrastructure funding in the past year. 

Schaeffler, a car parts company, is closing two UK factories because of Brexit, leading to 570 fewer jobs. 

Among others: There's a "Brexit-busting" ferry that sidesteps UK trade routes, drug companies are stockpiling medicine, and investors in the once-vibrant UK tech scene are drying up. (A great Twitter thread by a self-described 48%-er in Cambridge lists a wide array of industry impact. You can read it here.)

          Boeing's stock has gone rogue as scared traders flee — but one expert has formulated the perfect risk-free hedge      Cache   Translate Page      

boeing nyse

  • Boeing's stock has gotten whacked this week after its best-selling 737 Max aircraft was involved in two deadly crashes.
  • Traditional hedging measures have been thrown for a loop as Boeing's idiosyncratic moves have left it historically uncorrelated with major indexes.
  • Vinay Viswanathan, a derivatives strategist at Macro Risk Advisors, outlines a risk-free Boeing hedge that struggling traders should consider employing to guard against further losses.

If you were an owner of Boeing stock prior to its 11% dive over just a two-day period, you either sold into the weakness, or you're still stuck, looking for relief.

It's an unenviable position to be in. And given the recent issues around Boeing's best-selling 737 Max aircraft, it's not altogether surprising.

But you don't have to accept your fate as a shareholder in a company that looks to be in free-fall. You can fight back in the options market and hedge against further losses.

There is, however, one important catch: Boeing's recent sell-off has rendered traditional hedging mechanisms nearly unusable.

For instance, you might think that simply shorting the SPDR Industrial Select Sector ETF — in which Boeing carries a 9.4% weighting, the biggest of any company — would be an effective approach. But, in the wake of Boeing's idiosyncratic stock decline, the company is actually trading independently of the underlying ETF to a degree not seen in two years.

That's according to Vinay Viswanathan, a derivatives strategist at Macro Risk Advisors, who made the following chart:

That same correlation uncoupling has also occurred in the ETFs tracking the Dow Jones industrial average and the Dow Jones Transportation Index. What that ultimately means is that they're poor hedging options, since there's very little guarantee they'll trade in the same direction as Boeing.

So why not simply arrange an options trade around Boeing shares specifically? If only it were that easy. Viswanathan notes that single-stock hedges have become prohibitively expensive. In other words, everyone has the same idea, and it's driving prices up too much.

Luckily for those still trapped in Boeing's flagging stock, Viswanathan has concocted a handful of single-stock options trades designed to provide relief.

His Boeing-specific suggestion is the money trade here, since it's a downside hedge without basis risk. He recommends traders replace stock positions with capped risk reversals in order to limit risk of further losses, while profiting from the recent premium being paid for Boeing put contracts.

Here's the trade in full: Sell BA April 370/360 put spread to buy 435 call for $0.15 credit. (Note: Boeing's stock closed Tuesday at $375.41.)

Viswanathan offered the following profit-and-loss chart to show the potential payouts that could result:

Screen Shot 2019 03 12 at 4.45.33 PM

But Viswanathan didn't stop there. He also thinks traders should consider going long on two of Boeing's suppliers: United Technologies (UTX) and Honeywell (HON).

Here are the specific trades he suggests around those stocks:

  • Buy UTX April 115 puts for $0.60
  • Buy HON April 145 puts for $1.00

  • On Wednesday, federal regulators proposed broad new limits on sales of flavored varieties of e-cigarettes like the Juul.
  • The move comes just a week after FDA chief Scott Gottlieb announced he was stepping down from his post after just under two years in the job.
  • Gottlieb told Business Insider in an interview that he wanted to enact the rules before he leaves his position in a few weeks.
  • Gottlieb has been a vocal critic of e-cigarette startups such as Juul, which he has repeatedly slammed for targeting young people.

On the heels of news of his prompt departure as chief of the Food and Drug Administration, FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb announced a plan on Wednesday to crack down on flavored vaping products.

In accordance with the new plans, the FDA will focus on curbing the sale of any flavored e-cigarettes sold at the following locations:

  • Places where "minors are able to enter at any time," such as gas stations, pharmacies, and convenience stores
  • Stores and websites that previously were found to be selling to minors
  • Websites that don't limit the quantity that a customer can purchase at one time
  • Websites that don't use independent age-verification software.

Once the policy — which is currently in the draft-stage — is finalized, flavored options sold at these locations could be pulled from the market. Companies like Juul that want their flavored varieties to be available in these locations will have to submit applications for their products to the FDA by the summer of 2021, a year earlier than the previous policy suggested.

The move revisits a policy that Gottlieb first outlined at the start of his time at FDA which allowed flavored e-cigarette products like the Juul to be sold without federal oversight through 2022.

The agency will revoke those plans and replace them with a new policy that could drastically limit the sale of flavored e-cigarette varieties like mango from manufacturers like Juul.

"Ultimately, we expect these steps designed to address flavors and protect youth will dramatically limit the ability of kids to access tobacco products we know are both appealing and addicting," FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said in a statement.

"Our pledge to reduce youth use of e-cigarettes is deeply rooted and has broad support within the Trump Administration," he added. "Nobody wants to see children becoming addicted to nicotine."

Like the steps the FDA outlined in the fall, the latest proposal doesn't apply to tobacco, mint, or menthol-flavored e-cigarettes. The new proposal also includes restrictions on flavored cigars, including mint and menthol flavors, out of concern that teens might switch from e-cigarettes to those products. The proposal is open for comment for 30 days. Once it is finalized, the FDA will start enforcing it 30 days later.

The moves come on the heels of Gottlieb's sudden announcement last week that he would resign, after just under two years on the job. Advocates had worried that the anti-smoking push might falter without Gottlieb at the helm of the FDA.

'Most scientists believe flavorings are used to target teenagers'

Gottlieb has been a harsh critic of Juul, an e-cigarette startup that is now partially owned by Marlboro maker Altria, and has said he believes the company's sleek devices and sweet flavors helped drive the recent surge in teen vaping. Juul currently represents 80% of the e-cig market, according to Nielsen data. The company's 6-month launch campaign — which anti-tobacco groups and public health researchers have called irresponsible — featured images of young models and included parties and promotional events. 

Juul banned retail sales of its fruit, creme, mango and cucumber flavors last fall, just before the FDA announced its intention to crack down on flavored e-cigarettes. The flavors are still available online, where customers have to verify that they are 21 or over.

The start-up said in a statement on Wednesday that it is "committed to reducing youth usage while preserving our opportunity to eliminate combustible cigarettes, the number one cause of preventable death in the world." 

"We support category-wide action including the responsible, restricted sale of flavored products and will review today’s draft guidance as we continue to work with FDA, state Attorneys General, local municipalities, and community organizations as a transparent and responsible partner in combating underage use," the statement said. 

Still, the new FDA proposal could pose a particular threat to Juul because it allows the FDA to remove any e-cigarettes targeting young people or that will likely promote vaping among the age group, Jefferies analyst Owen Bennett said.

"This to us, could raise a risk of all pod products being removed, and especially raises the risk for Juu," Bennett said. 

The FDA is also having the makers of many flavored e-cigarettes put in applications that show their products meet a public health standard by mid-2021.

That's a year earlier than the deadline the agency had previously given e-cigarette manufacturers, and Gottlieb described it as an "important change." The regulator plans on taking enforcement action against the companies that haven't submitted those applications by the deadline, according to the new proposal.

Both the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network and the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids described the new measures as falling short, even as they said that Gottlieb and the FDA deserve credit for focusing on youth use of these products.

Matthew L. Myers, president of  the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, called for faster and more forceful action from the regulator, and criticized the latest step for not focusing on Juul specifically or applying to menthol and mint e-cigarette flavors.

"With Juul and other mint- and menthol e-cigarettes still widely available, it is doubtful the FDA’s new policy will stem the tide of youth e-cigarette use," Myers said. 

Flavors have been at the epicenter of much of the debate around young people and e-cigarettes, leading the city of San Francisco to ban flavored e-cigarettes (and menthol cigarettes) last summer.

Experts say sweet, fruity, and even candy-like e-cigarette varieties are designed to hook teens on nicotine. In young people, nicotine appears to blunt emotional control as well as decision-making and impulse-regulation skills

Gottlieb and others believe those sweet flavors are partially responsible for the troubling 78% rise in e-cigarette use outlined in data published by the Centers for Disease Control last November. The report analyzed teen e-cig use between 2017 and 2018. Gottlieb has also said he believes the increase has been driven largely by Juul, although their devices do not come in packages that resemble things like candy or hot sauce, like hundreds of other e-cigarettes do.

"Most scientists believe flavorings are used to target teenagers into becoming users," Ana Rule, a professor of environmental health and engineering at Johns Hopkins University who was an author of a recent study on e-cigs and teens, told Business Insider last summer.

The FDA also considered changing its approach to hookah products, another type of tobacco product that many young people use, the new guidance document said. Ultimately, though, the regulator wasn't sure how getting rid of flavors might affect use of hookah products, and the products are also not as easy as e-cigarettes to use in places like schools.

          The first all-female spacewalk in history will feature women astronauts, flight directors, and mission controllers. NASA says it's a scheduling accident.      Cache   Translate Page      

female spacewalk astronauts anne mcclain christina hammock koch international space station iss nasa 2x1

  • The first all-female spacewalk is scheduled to occur on March 29 outside the International Space Station.
  • Astronauts Anne McClain and Christina Koch will work together in spacesuits while female mission controllers on Earth provide support.
  • NASA said the historic first "was not orchestrated to be this way" and is a result of scheduling changes and the changing makeup of its agency.
  • The goal of the spacewalk is to upgrade the space station's power system with new batteries.

NASA is about to stumble into human spaceflight history with the first-ever all-female spacewalk.

Spacewalks, formally called extravehicular activities or EVAs, are routine yet risky operations. During a spacewalk, a pair of astronauts put on bulky spacesuits, step outside the International Space Station (ISS), and work together in the unforgiving vacuum of space.

On March 29, NASA plans to have two female astronauts — Anne McClain and Christina Hammock Koch — perform a spacewalk to replace some old batteries. Meanwhile, two women on the ground in Mission Control — lead flight director Mary Lawrence and spacewalk flight controller Jackie Kagey — will lead support of the operation and guide the astronauts every step of the way.

There have been more than 210 spacewalks over the space station's 18-year history, and two female crew members have lived aboard the ISS several times before. But this will be the first all-female, women-led spacewalk operation ever conducted. Plus, this one happens to be scheduled during Women's History Month.

Kristen Facciol, a female aerospace engineer, astronaut trainer, and mission controller, will also be involved.

"I just found out that I'll be on console providing support for the FIRST ALL FEMALE SPACEWALK with @AstroAnnimal [McClain] and @Astro_Christina [Koch] and I can not contain my excitement!!!!" Facciol tweeted on March 1, later adding that she hopes "this will be the norm one day."

For its part, though, NASA says the historic first is a scheduling accident.

"It was not orchestrated to be this way," Stephanie Schierholz, a NASA representative, said in a statement to Business Insider, noting that this particular spacewalk was originally slated to take place in the fall of 2018. And given the ongoing hiring strategy of NASA, all-female spacewalks may not be rare for long.

Why the first female spacewalk is likely a coincidence 

soyuz ms 10 rocket launch flight photographers expedition 57 crew nasa reuters 2018 10 11T091619Z_1854069770_RC17A46851B0_RTRMADP_3_SPACE STATION LAUNCH.JPG

The goal of the upcoming all-female, 6.5-hour mission — along with another spacewalk happening on March 22 — is to replace critical yet aging batteries outside of the space station.

The ISS has a three-person crew that rotates roughly every six months, and spacewalks require two astronauts to buddy up for safety.

But the spacewalks initially planned to take care of the battery fixes hit multiple delays. First, the launch of the new batteries aboard a Japanese-built cargo ship was pushed back by two weeks. Then the launch of NASA astronaut Nick Hague — who was slated to perform the spacewalks in October — and Roscosmos cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin failed, forcing the two men to do an emergency landing.

Read more: A Russian rocket failed with 2 people on board, and the moment was recorded on video. Here's what it shows.

A safety system blasted their Soyuz space capsule off the doomed rocket, then parachuted the crew back to Earth uninjured. Hague and Ovchinin will attempt to launch to the space station again this Thursday, but this time they're also flying with with NASA astronaut Christina Koch.

That means the three US astronauts who will be on the space station for the rescheduled battery replacement are Hague, Koch, and McClain (who launched on December 3) — one man and two women.

Hague and McClain are slated to perform the first of the two spacewalks on March 22, then Koch and McClain will do the second on March 29 — the all-female outing.

All-women coincidences will be increasingly likely going forward, given the future composition of NASA's new batches of astronauts and its human spaceflight division.

"All three NASA astronauts who will be on the space station are from the 2013 astronaut class that was 50% women. And the most recent class of flight directors was 50% women," Schierholz said.

Why NASA needs a battery swap

international space station iss nasa

The space station is powered by four sets of expansive rectangular solar cells. But because the football-field-size laboratory stays afloat by zooming around Earth at 17,500 mph (it circles the planet about once every 90 minutes), it's in darkness roughly half the time.

To keep the power flowing during orbital night, batteries store up excess solar energy. But those batteries are now more than 12 years old, and not getting any younger.

NASA is in the midst of replacing four sets of 12 batteries — one per set of solar cells. The newer batteries are lithium-ion types store about twice the energy, so six will be swapped in instead of 12. The spacewalks this month will mark the second set of replacements, according to CBS News.

A robotic arm moves the batteries into position for the spacewalks, but the fine coordination of human hands is required to unbolt the old batteries and swap in the new ones. Hague, Koch, and McClain will also attach adapter plates to enable the reduction from 12 to six batteries.

Training for a spacewalk

Astronauts practice for months and even years ahead of such operations.

"We train for spacewalks in a giant pool that's called the Neutral Buoyancy Lab. It's a pool that's large enough to fill a full-scale mockup of the International Space Station," Koch said in a NASA video.

Training is so intense because spacewalks, though routine, are very risky. In fact, NASA officials often say that donning a suit and working in the vacuum of space is "one of the most dangerous things we do as a program," primarily because there is very little to protect an astronaut if anything goes wrong.

Spacewalks can go south for a number of reasons. If an astronaut makes a incorrect move, he or she can poke or cut a spacesuit, allowing air to escape. Micrometeoroid debris — such as pieces of asteroid and comets, or space junk like flecks of paint and bits of metal — also pose a grave threat. Plus, there's a risk of mechanical problems or failures; during a July 2013 spacewalk, for example, a water leak threatened to drown Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano in his helmet.

Read more: A space junk disaster could cut off human access to space. Here's how.

christina hammock koch astronaut sokol spacesuit nasa AP_19051316275400Koch and McClain, for their parts, appear more than ready to risk these and other dangers in order to maintain humanity's ongoing presence in space.

During Koch's interview to be an astronaut, she said one person on her interview committee was a personal hero: Peggy Whitson, the NASA astronaut who's spent the most time in space. Koch said Whitson — who has performed 10 spacewalks and seen her share of close calls — asked a memorable question about Koch's love of rock-climbing.

"She looked at me, and she said, 'when you rock climb, have you ever been scared?' And I felt like she was seeing right to my soul when she asked that question," Koch said. She confirmed that she has indeed been scared.

"That's when I found that ... turning that fear that you might be having into focus is so important," Koch added.

How to watch the first all-female spacewalk live

NASA TV plans to broadcast Koch and McClain's spacewalk starting at 6:30 a.m. EDT on March 29. You can watch the operation live at that time using the embedded YouTube player below.

The operation should last nearly seven hours, beginning with Koch and McClain depressurizing an airlock. They'll then open the hatch, step outside, make their way to the truss with the batteries, and get to work.

NASA's broadcast should show live views from cameras on the space station as well those from the astronauts' helmets. Radio communications between Koch, McClain, and Mission Control at Johnson Space Center in Houston will also be heard.

 

But NASA says the historic all-female spacewalk depends on the successful launch of Hague, Koch, and Ovchinin on Thursday. If there are any delays or issues with that launch, NASA would inevitably delay its two upcoming spacewalks once again.

The new crew members — a combination of space station Expeditions 59 and 60 — are scheduled to launch to space from southern Kazakhstan at at 3:14 p.m. EDT on March 14 (12:14 a.m. local time on March 15). About seven hours later, they hope to meet up with McClain, Canadian astronaut David Saint-Jacques, and space station commander Oleg Kononenko, a Russian cosmonaut. NASA TV (above) also plans live-broadcast the launch and docking attempts.

McClain, for her part, has consistently embraced her role as a model for women in science and working mothers — she even included her 4-year-old son in a NASA photo shoot before flying to the ISS.

"I think that my career and perhaps me being on the International Space Station can really show women and girls and everybody that hey, we're not just sitting at the table, we're leading the table. And there's no excuses: You can accomplish whatever you want to," McClain said during a live broadcast of a phone call to the space station on International Women's Day. "You just got to throw your hat in the ring. You've got to get out there and do it."

Geopolitical Monitor

OPINION - March 8, 2019

By Alessandro Bruno

Today, if a new entrepreneur wants to understand why the banks rejected a loan application for his start-up, or if a young graduate wants to know why the large corporation for which he was hoping to work did not invite her for an interview, they will not be able to discover the reasons that led to these decisions.

Both the bank and the corporation used artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to determine the outcome of the loan or the job application. In practice, this means that if your loan application is rejected, or your CV rejected, no explanation can be provided. This produces an embarrassing scenario, which tends to relegate AI technologies to suggesting solutions, which must be validated by human beings.

Explaining how these technologies work remains one of the great challenges that researchers and adopters must resolve in order to allow humans to become less suspicious, and more accepting, of AI.  To that effect, it’s important to note what AI is not. The very term AI conjures up images of sentient robots able to understand human language and act accordingly. While it may one day reach that point, for the time being, in the vast majority of cases AI refers to a complex software, programmed to make decisions based on the inputs it receives.

The big leap occurred when such software moved beyond being able to play and win at chess against humans (Google’s DeepMind) to being able to approve or deny credit such as Lenddo. In other words AI now largely consists of software, based on decisional algorithms. The self-driving apps that Apple, Google, and Tesla are developing are based on the same principles. Similarly, many humans come literally face to face with AI every day when they ask Siri, Alexa or Google Assistant to help them with a search or in finding a good restaurant.

AI, therefore, for most people, is a decisional system that produces results based on the data that feed a given algorithm. And while we’re discussing the subject of AI explainability, algorithms (derived from the IX century Baghdad mathematician al-Kharawazm who first recognized these) are procedures that resolve a specific problem through an established number of basic steps.

In a sense, explainable AI offers a solution to enable the relevant humans to understand how an AI algorithm made a particular decision. Why does anyone need to know this? Because the algorithms take decisions with serious ethical and legal ramifications. Therefore, in order for AI to advance and spread, it can only do so in a context of ‘explainability.’ Let’s consider self-driving cars. In case of an accident, the obvious question is ‘who is responsible?’ The issue of repairing the damage, to a vehicle, person, or property begs to be asked. Legal systems have been slow to adapt, even as automated systems are making decisions in situations, which not even the human algorithm programmers can predict.

The issue of self-driving vehicles may be the most obvious.

Who is responsible? Insurers and lawyers are already debating the issue. And despite the fact that related experimental vehicles have driven millions of miles in tests on actual roads, before drivers will be allowed to exploit the full potential of self-driving technology, legal knots will have to be worked out. And in order for that to happen, the AI algorithms will have to be able to explain how they make their decisions.

Until then, humans will have to take responsibility for decisional processes. And this limits the potential of AI.

Therefore, the future of ‘AI explainability’ is the future of AI itself.

AI will also need to explain itself, given its enormous philosophical implications.

In the Bible, the Creator asked Adam and Eve not to eat the fruit from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. The Creator offered no explanation for the demand; and his two most valuable creations, Adam and Eve, defied the command. In the Bible, God expelled the two from eternal life. Mankind will not have this luxury. AI technology, like all other technology before it, cannot be expelled from the world-no matter how hard luddites may try. Yet, the ‘forbidden fruit’ story does pose two crucial A.I. problems:

Will AI systems also become independent enough to think for themselves and defy human orders (as many fear and as science fiction has suggested)? And why should humans abide by decisions taken by AI systems?

Of the two, the one that must be addressed first is the latter question.

In the opinion of many, including unlikely sources involved in selling AI dependent technologies – such as Elon Musk of Tesla Motors and SpaceX – artificial intelligence suffers from excessive opacity. Artificial intelligence technologies have generated programs that peruse curricula, cover letters, medical diagnostics or loan applications. Nevertheless, these programs make decisions in ways that seem arbitrary. Or, rather, they make decisions that neither the humans in control nor the programs can explain. Programmers and users simply cannot track the multitude of calculations that the AI program has used to reach its conclusion.

AI technology—if we can even use that plebeian term to describe something that’s as revolutionary as the discovery of fire—will be a turning point for humanity, not just the economy, making our lives better. It’s on the brink of devising systems, whether machines or processes, that can think, feel and even worship their creators…humans. Indeed, humanity has truly reached an Olympian moment. It has evolved to the point of having reshaped the world physically, it has now reached a stage where it can literally play ‘God’. If humans are now in a position to create ever more sentient ‘machines’, there are no guarantees that the machines will be happy to serve and obey their creators all of the time.

Updated at 10 a.m. ET The SpaceX Crew Dragon hit its splashdown time of 8:45 a.m. ET right on target Friday, landing in the Atlantic Ocean after undocking from the International Space Station and re-entering Earth's atmosphere. The successful test and splashdown is "an amazing achievement in American history," said NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine, who called the SpaceX flight the "dawning of a new era in American human space flight." The splashdown was closely monitored at SpaceX's mission control in Hawthorne, Calif., where parachute deployments and other developments brought whoops of celebration. The yells then turned into roars of cheering applause after Crew Dragon finally hit the water safely and well within sight of its recovery boats off the Florida coast. The Atlantic Ocean landing is the first in nearly 50 years for a capsule that was designed for humans, NASA says. The last such incident: the Apollo 9 splashdown on March 13, 1969.

          Trump ger finansiering för permanent månstation - Mars nästa steg      Cache   Translate Page      
“We will go to the Moon in the next decade in a way we have never gone before. We will go with innovative new technologies and systems to explore more locations across the surface than was ever thought possible. This time, when we go to the Moon, we will stay. And then we will use what we learn on the Moon to take the next giant leap - sending astronauts to Mars. ” —NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine
Om president Donald Trumps begärda budget går igenom får Nasa finansiering för att etablera permanent närvaro på månen. Detta ska ses som ett steg för utveckling av förmågor att ta mänskligheten till Mars, även om det inte ingår i finansieringsförslaget.
Rymdskytteln Enterprise på USS Intrepid-museumet i New York.
Trump vill alltså finansiera amerikansk återvändo till månen, denna gång initialt med en permanent bemannad rymdstation Getaway runt månen. Om budgetförslaget går igenom kommer Getaway att byggas. Tidsplanen är att rymdstationen ska vara på plats till 2024.

Stegen därefter är att skicka robotar till månens yta, för mer och mer avancerade ändamål. Eventuellt kan det också bli en fråga om en permanent bas på själva månen och Nasas chef säger att man kommer sätta människor på månen nästa decennium.

Målet är att utveckla teknikplattformar för nästa steg, vilket skulle vara att skicka människor till Mars, vilket förstås ligger betydligt längre framåt i tiden.

Huruvida budgetförslaget accepteras av representanthuset/kongressen/senaten (eller vilken kombination det nu är som ska klubba den) är en annan fråga.

Se även Nasas sajt för Moon to Mars. Tidplanen är astronauter på månen via Gateway 2028 och på mars under 2030-decenniet.

Mänsklighetens långsiktiga öde ligger förstås i rymden, och tids nog i andra solsystem. Förr eller senare dör vår egen sol, och utan närvaro i andra solsystem kommer de enda spåren av mänskligheten och allt vårt kämpade att vara allt svagare radiosignaler, allt längre bort. Månen och mars är två små steg på vägen mot en annan framtid där vi inte bara förvandlas till radiosignaler, som sakta dör ut.

För övrigt sägs uttryckligen att kommersiella aktörer ska användas för  försörjningen av Getaway. Man kan räkna med en fjäder i hatten åt Elon Musks SpaceX. SpaceX är dock inte börsnoterat, vilket kanske är bra för att undvika kvartalskapitalism kring något med väldigt långa tidshorisonter och skyhöga säkerhetskrav. Dock kan vi inte kolonisera rymden om vi inte accepterar att egna människoliv kommer spillas, likt när europeerna koloniserade Nord- och Sydamerika. Avkastningen måste vara värd risken.

          SpaceX hangar packed with Falcon Heavy Block 5 boosters for early April debut      Cache   Translate Page      

For a company that rarely reveals anything without explicit intent, a February 28th video posted by SpaceX during the lead-up to Crew Dragon’s launch debut featured a surprise cameo: two Block 5 side boosters meant to support Falcon Heavy’s commercial debut and second launch ever.

          Илон Маск: Украина сыграла главную роль в космонавтике СССР      Cache   Translate Page      

Основатель SpaceX отреагировал на слова собеседника о том, что после распада СССР РФ "не совершила революции и использует старое советское наследие", передает Техно сотня с ссылкой на LIGA.net.

По мнению главы компании SpaceX Илона Маска, в мире пока еще нет равных действующему российскому ракетному двигателю, однако в развитии космической отрасли СССР и, соответственно, РФ "главную роль" сыграла Украина. Соответствующий твит он разместил незадолго перед отстыковкой корабля Crew Dragon от МКС и его приземлением.

Один из пользователей соцсети написал под заявлением бизнесмена о "лучшем из ныне использующихся двигателей", что (со слов Маска) "великолепное российское ракетостроение" происходит из ракетостроения СССР, которое, в свою очередь, зиждется на работах украинских ученых и инженеров.

Реагируя на заявление собеседника о том, что "за 28 лет последних лет Россия не совершила космической революции и до сих пор использует старое советское наследие", глава SpaceX написал: "Украина действительно сыграла основную роль".
