The University of Luxembourg and the European rocket manufacturer ArianeGroup have signed a collaboration agreement to advance research in the area of rocket propulsion.Cryogenic propellants such as liquid oxygen and liquid hydrogen are widely used in space propulsion systems because they are more efficient and less toxic than other propellants.These fuels need to be stored at extremely low temperatures in order to maintain their liquid state.The rocket engine, its valves and feeding lines must however be able to operate properly when in direct contact with the extremely cold fuels.After the valve has completely cooled down, it can be safely opened and the propellants are supplied to the engine for ignition."There are currently no accurate models to predict this cryogenic heat transfer process.

Astonishingly, this expectation was set out after several fatal crashes in Arizona, Writes David Emm, Principal Security Researcher at Kaspersky Lab.It was developed for exchanging information between different micro controllers.The main issue here, is that these networks weren’t built with security in mind, as it was not a key concern back then.As time has gone on, modern-day functionality has been layered on top of existing functions, all connected to the CAN.While there are no real-world hacks that have been executed this way, it has been proven possible.It is an example of emerging technologies being layered on top of old infrastructure, without fully considering the security implications.

It’s not long now before we see the next iPod Touch, a device we’ve not seen refreshed since July of 2015.Word from rather reliable sources suggested this week that a three-device reveal schedule was set for this week, including a new set of iPads, a new iMac, and a new iPod Touch.The last date at which any other iPod was available through Apple was July of 2017.It’s clear that the schedule for iPod releases is a bit changed here in 2019 – as well it should be.VIA analysis from Ming-Chi Kuo quite recently, and word from a source speaking with MacRumors earlier this month, it’s iPod Touch 7 time.Here in 2019, it’s likely the new iPod touch will have increased base specs, including internal storage.

For years, design software programmers have dreamed of ways to give digital design that pen-to-paper feel.But the latest way to sketch inside Adobe Illustrator uses an actual pen to paper.The Moleskine Paper Tablet – Creative Cloud Connected, announced on Tuesday, March 19, is connected to Adobe’s cloud service to add the sketch you draw on actual paper to Illustrator, stroke for stroke.The key to having your sketch and digitizing it is the Moleskine Pen Plus Ellipse optical pen.Used with the Paper Tablet, the pen records each movement, copying each stroke to Adobe Illustrator in real time, Adobe says.The integration also allows artists to undo brush strokes on the digital file (not on the actual paper, of course).

The folks at Google responsible for Inbox by Gmail are likely just as bummed about their work’s fate as those that made Google Plus.That’s the social network Google made, and the Gmail suite of services – a new interface for the email service – that’s proved itself less-than-necessary.Google started notifying users via Gmail and Inbox (inside of which there is Gmail) that Inbox is going away on April 2nd.According to the notification from Inbox, “this app will be going away in 15 days” and users can find their “favorite Inbox features in the Gmail app.” Most of the features that seemed above-and-beyond and extra when the Inbox app first launched are now in Gmail proper.We’ll likely now need to download whatever Google’s got in store for Beta releases of Gmail to get advanced features.And the bundling offered with Inbox isn’t in the mix, for now.

Quantum computers are designed to process information using quantum bits, and promise huge speedups in scientific computing and codebreakingCurrent prototype devices are publicly accessible but highly error prone: information can 'leak' into unwanted statesComputer program designed and run by University of Warwick physicists can tell when a quantum computer is 'leaking'Results will inform the development of future quantum computers and error correction techniquesA new computer program that spots when information in a quantum computer is escaping to unwanted states will give users of this promising technology the ability to check its reliability without any technical knowledge for the first time.Researchers from the University of Warwick's Department of Physics have developed a quantum computer program to detect the presence of 'leakage', where information being processed by a quantum computer escapes from the states of 0 and 1.

It’s been a busy couple of days for Apple.Yesterday, the company introduced a new iPad Air and a new iPad mini, opting to forgo the reveal event it typically hosts for product announcements and revealing them instead through a press release.Today, it’s doing the same thing once again, but this time around, it’s the iMac that’s getting a refresh.Unlike yesterday’s iPad reveals, this iMac refresh isn’t quite so dramatic.Essentially, Apple is simply updating the iMac with a new CPU and GPU for 2019, but beyond that new silicon, nothing else is really changing.The familiar iMac design is being left untouched, as are the displays and their resolution.

It will add support for the visual feature to a number of GPUs from its Pascal GTX-10 series generation, as well as the recently unveiled GTX 16-series cards.Although they won’t be as good at it as the RTX 2000-series, the most powerful of them should still be able to adopt some of the fancy lighting features which were previously limited to Nvidia’s high-end Turing GPUs.Performance takes a huge hit with ray tracing enabled, and even with deep learning super sampling helping to alleviate that, the end result can sometimes look and perform worse than if both technologies were disabled.While improvements have been made with game optimizations and driver releases, we have to wonder how well non-RTX cards will be able to handle the intensive technology.Nvidia at least appears confident it will do so with ease — even if it has taken this opportunity to highlight how much more capable its RTX graphics cards are.In its announcement, Nvidia detailed that all Pascal GPUs from the GTX 1060 6GB up would receive ray tracing support.

The Latin American mobile heavyweight América Móvil has agreed to acquire its competitor Nextel in the Brazilian market for $905 million.The other 30% of Nextel is owned by AI Brazil Holdings, the local operation of Access Industries, an American private company whose portfolio includes natural resources, telecoms, internet services, as well as Warner Music, among other media interests.The nature of the deal, “cash free / debt free”, will let NII and AI Brazil keep all the cash while América Móvil will not assume Nextel’s debts.Although the total transaction value is less than 1.5 times of Nextel’s annual revenues in 2018 ($621 million), it represents almost four times NII’s market capitalisation on its latest trading day on NASDAQ ($229 million), indicating the buyer’s relatively strong confidence in the business prospect.Brazil is a highly competitive market.According to research by Ovum, by Q4 2018, Vivo (owned by Telefónica) led with one third of the total mobile market, while TIM and Claro (América Móvil’s existing operation in Brazil) were vying for the second place, each serving about a quarter of the total mobile subscribers.

Sure, the world of smart speaker chips isn’t as argument-inducing (or as exciting to the general public) as video game graphics cards or even smartphone processors, but it has a massive impact on the way you interact with and enjoy our favorite music, podcasts, and various other smart devices in your home.Without the right chip, asking Siri, Alexa, or Google to tell you the weather or play your favorite artist would be a futile task.Well, smart speakers, soundbars, and more are about to get a massive IQ bump thanks to a new chipset developed by Qualcomm called the QCS400.Designed from the ground up, the new chipset includes faster voice processing with better background noise filters, lower power consumption, and built-in support for object-based audio technology like Dolby Atmos and DTS:X.That means that any speakers with the new chip installed will be able to integrate more easily into modern home theater systems and that smart soundbars are about to get a lot easier to integrate into various multiroom smart speaker setups.That, plus faster audio processing onboard means that streaming music will be easier and more reliable than ever, and should enable manufacturers to focus even more on improving audio quality in smaller devices using advanced digital signal processing.

Croydon, schools, Brexit, the Queen, poo – hey, it's a royal flush of terrible news itemsA high school in the picturesque London borough of Croydon has been gratefully lumped with a lifetime supply of loo roll after Her Majesty the Queen turned down a donation from a cheeky German company.Some reckon the UK, being a large importer of toilet paper, could be in the shit in more ways than one if it crashes out of the European Union without a deal on 29 March.Cue a chance to score points at home for Dusseldorf-based Hakle, which on Monday shipped 90 packs of "Dream Soft" bog roll to Buckingham Palace "to ensure the monarch has access to one of life's necessities in case of a 'no deal' Brexit shortage", the Sutton & Croydon Guardian reported.Of course the delivery had to be turned away on grounds of "security", though we suspect it wasn't up to scratch for the Royal Wee.But as chance would have it, a staff member's brother works as deputy head of Woodcote High School in Coulsdon – and the TP was sent there instead.

Facebook said no users reported the video of the New Zealand mosque shootings while it was still live.This was disputed by a reporter for Right Wing Watch, who said he was alerted to the live video and raised the alarm immediately.The shooter streamed the attack on Facebook, and despite copies of the video spreading like wildfire, the company said the live broadcast was viewed fewer than 200 times.Facebook has provided further details of its response to the video of the mosque shooting which left 50 people dead in Christchurch, New Zealand, on Friday.The attack was streamed live on Facebook via what is thought to be a body-mounted camera.A link to the stream was posted on 8Chan, an imageboard site known for a being a hotbed of far-right extremist views.

So why don’t we have pain medicines designed just for men or women?Drug development begins with studies on rats and mice, and until three years ago, almost all that research used only male animals.Although they are remarkably effective in relieving the sudden pain of a broken bone or pulled tooth, they don’t work as well for people with persistent pain that lasts three months or longer.Some 50 million people struggle with pain most days or every day, and chronic pain is the leading cause of long-term disability in the United States.Women are more likely than men to have a chronic pain condition, such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, or migraines.About 17,000 people die each year from prescribed opioids as clinicians write almost 200 million opioid prescriptions, or more than one for every two American adults.

It's entirely possible to go to SXSW and have a completely different experience from someone else.Over the course of 10 days, a lot happens -- sessions, world premieres, interactive experiences, show cases, satanic nuns breaking into song outside the convention center -- and the event covers a broad range of topics like film, tech and music.My run this year included the world premiere of Jordan Peele's Us and a visit with Wisconsin cheese, where I maxed out my dairy intake for the next month.Or, at least, its upcoming limited series on the topic, Good Omens.At SXSW, we got to visit the Garden of Earthly Delights, with its pen of adoptable hellhound puppies and beer-and-prophecy-dispensing tree.The nuns, in particular, wished anyone who passed by a Merry Apocalypse.
