The moon arguably only shows us its good side.The half of our satellite that always faces Earth shows off wide, smooth basins, whereas the far side of the moon is dramatically different and marked up with numerous craters.Data gathered by NASA's Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory (GRAIL) mission in 2012 also revealed that the moon's far side has an inexplicably thicker crust and is covered by an extra layer of material.Scientists have been gathering data to piece together the mystery of the moon's two "faces" since the age of the Apollo missions and the latest evidence suggests that a massive, ancient collision could be to blame for the disparity.A new paper published in the journal JGR: Planets reports the results of 360 computer simulations on how a primordial impact between a dwarf planet and the moon could have led to the structure of the lunar crust seen today."The detailed gravity data obtained by GRAIL has given new insight into the structure of the lunar crust underneath the surface," lead author Meng Hua Zhu, of the Space Science Institute at Macau University of Science and Technology, said in a release.

The grant will fund the renewal of the 18-year-old Maine INBRE (IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence) program for another five years.The MDI Biological Laboratory, located in Bar Harbor, is the founder and leader of the statewide collaborative network of 13 educational and research institutions.Other INBRE members include the University of Maine and The Jackson Laboratory, as well as partner undergraduate institutions Bates College, Bowdoin College, Colby College, College of the Atlantic, Southern Maine Community College, the University of Maine Honors College, and the Universities of Maine at Farmington, Fort Kent, Machias and Presque Isle."The renewal will allow us to continue a very successful program to create biomedical research and research training opportunities across the state, and especially among our undergraduate partner institutions," said James A. Coffman, Ph.D., director of the Maine INBRE and associate professor at the MDI Biological Laboratory.The aim of the NIGMS IDeA (Institutional Development Award) program is to build research capacity in the 23 states and Puerto Rico that have historically low levels of NIH funding and lack a strong biomedical research infrastructure.The INBRE program focuses on creating a technically skilled workforce by providing biomedical research experiences and training to undergraduates and research support and mentorship to young faculty members to increase their competitiveness for independent NIH funding, and by improving the research infrastructure of the INBRE network through core facilities that provide state-of-the-art technology and technical expertise.

The seemingly harmless inhabitants of a remote Swedish village are harboring a terrible secret in Midsommar, a new film from Director Ari Aster, who brought us last year's chilling horror film Hereditary.The official synopsis describes the film as "a dread-soaked cinematic fairytale where a world of darkness unfolds in broad daylight."Aster is a longtime fan of the horror genre and kicked off his career with a controversial short film called The Strange Thing About the Johnsons, in which a son develops a taboo incestuous relationship with this father.Hereditary, his first feature, also rooted its horror in dysfunctional family drama, with themes of trauma and grief—right before turning into a bone-chilling nightmare.It was lauded by critics as the scariest movie of the year and likened to such horror classics as The Exorcist and Rosemary's Baby.Midsommar seems like it owes more to the 1973 horror/mystery, The Wicker Man, in which a police sergeant investigates a missing girl on the remote Hebridean island of Summerisle, where the inhabitants practice a form of Celtic paganism.

Researchers from Romanian security firm BitDefender have uncovered a troubling security vulnerability in Intel processors that could allow an attacker to access privileged kernel-mode information typically considered “off limits” for most applications.In 2018, researchers announced the discovery of two bugs, Spectre and Meltdown, which exploited vulnerabilities in modern speculative execution features in order to access parts of the memory.Both of those issues were resolved – or, perhaps more accurately, mitigated – with software tweaks and microcode patches.BitDefender says this recently-discovered issue can be resolved — at least, partially — with microcode patches.That’s where the good news ends, as BitDefender notes that a general fix is “impossible,” as the issue derives from a hardware design flaw.First, a bit of background.

Vad tänker du på om jag säger industri?En ganska enkel definition men som förmodligen de flesta kan skriva under på.Vi känner alla till de stora bolag som genom sin utveckling och storlek bidragit till denna bild.2018 stod verkstadsindustrin för hälften av tillverkningsindustrins produktion och drygt 45 procent av värdet av Sveriges hela export.Ökad konkurrens och helt nya tekniktrender kan sätta stopp för detta om vi inte gör någonting nu.Anledningen var att öka ambitionsnivån för utvecklingen av små och medelstora företag i Europa.

Anki, the San Francisco-based robotics company that specialized in making smartphone-controlled toys, is shutting down this week, reports Recode.The sudden news, delivered to staff today by CEO Boris Sofman, means the company’s staff of nearly 200 people will lose their jobs by Wednesday, with only one week of severance.Anki raised more than $200 million in venture capital funding to date.According to Recode, Anki ran out of money and could no longer “support a hardware and software business” that would enable it to achieve its “long-term product roadmap.” Last August, Anki said it had sold 1.5 million robot units to date, which appears to have included both its toy cars and personal robots.That wasn’t enough to keep the business going.“Despite our past successes, we pursued every financial avenue to fund our future product development and expand on our platforms,” a company spokesperson tells Recode.

Thankfully, there's a fee-free option: For a limited time, and while supplies last, Newegg has the RemoBell S Smart Video Doorbell for $89 with promo code NEWEGGCNET2.You can also get the RemoBell W for $149 with promo code NEWEGGCNET1.That's a savings of $50, and while it's arguably the better of the two products, I'm going to focus on the S, because it's the one I've been testing for the past couple weeks.The RemoBell S is an attractive, hardwired doorbell (much better-looking than the W, actually), designed to take the place of your existing bell.It takes just two taps to access a live video feed on your phone or tablet, and I was impressed at how quickly the feed appeared.While puttering in my basement one day, my phone pinged when someone rang the doorbell, and within about four seconds I was able to see who was there and carry on a two-way conversation.

"I spy with my little eye" lyder beskrivningen under CIA:s första bild på Instagram.En arbetsplats med ett skrivbord fyllt av olika föremål på huvudkontoret Langley i Virginia skulle många kunna tro att det är.Men CIA har varit kreativ i valet av första bild, som ger följarna en utmaning.Bakom flera föremål döljer sig nämligen hemliga meddelanden, säger en talesperson för CIA till CBS News.Bland annat finns en klocka som står på 8.46 vilket är tiden då det norra tornet av World Trade Center attackerades den 11 september 2001.En karta över Kina, en peruk och en bild på CIA-medarbetaren Tony Mendez, som under täckmanteln filmskapare räddade sex amerikanska diplomater som undkommit gisslandramat i Iran 1979, är andra detaljer som brittiska BBC listar.

A KAIST research team identified the intrinsic control architecture of brain networks.The control properties will contribute to providing a fundamental basis for the exogenous control of brain networks and, therefore, has broad implications in cognitive and clinical neuroscience.Although efficiency and robustness are often regarded as having a trade-off relationship, the human brain usually exhibits both attributes when it performs complex cognitive functions.They employed an interdisciplinary approach that spans connectomics, neuroscience, control engineering, network science, and systems biology to examine the structural brain networks of various species and compared them with the control architecture of other biological networks, as well as man-made ones, such as social, infrastructural and technological networks.In particular, the team reconstructed the structural brain networks of 100 healthy human adults by performing brain parcellation and tractography with structural and diffusion imaging data obtained from the Human Connectome Project database of the US National Institutes of Health.The team developed a framework for analyzing the control architecture of brain networks based on the minimum dominating set (MDSet), which refers to a minimal subset of nodes (MD-nodes) that control the remaining nodes with a one-step direct interaction.

Samsung has confirmed reports from earlier today that it is postponing the release of its $2,000 Galaxy Fold foldable phone only days before it was originally scheduled to go on sale.Earlier today, The Wall Street Journal reported that the Fold won’t hit shelves until sometime in May at the earliest, but Samsung is giving itself plenty of leeway with its non-committal timeframe.The company’s US carrier partners, AT and T-Mobile, have yet to comment or offer guidance to preorder customers.The Galaxy Fold’s durability has come into question after several review units failed in quick succession due to issues with their displays.But in other cases (such as The Verge’s own), the Fold catastrophically failed after just a day or two of normal use.In Dieter’s case, debris seemingly made its way into the hinge and underneath the inside.

Fresh from an $8.8 billion profit last year, much-maligned Chinese tech giant Huawei is touting yet more growth.The firm said today that revenue in the first quarter of 2019 grew 39 percent year-on-year to reach $26.78 billion, or 179.7 billion CNY.The company claims it is owned by its employees — although a recent academic paper challenged that.While it isn’t listed publicly, it declares quarterly and yearly business figures, the latter of which is audited by KPMG.For Q1, Huawei didn’t reveal a net profit but it said that its net profit margin was eight percent which is “slightly higher” than the same time in the previous year.During the quarter, Huawei said it shipped 59 million smartphones while it added that, as of the end of March, it had signed 40 commercial 5G contracts and shipped over 70,000 base stations to support 5G networks worldwide.

It's difficult to dominate that space long enough to become the catch-all term for a broad suite of devices competing for time and money.Depending on the year, they could be referring to my Sega Master System, the SNES or even my Nintendo 64.Over a 10-year period it would go on to sell almost 120 million units.At a guess I might have been 9 or 10 years old, spending endless hours playing -- obsessed with video games in the worst way.He'd broken his leg and his mother bought him the handheld to soften the blow.Months later, after a sustained harassment campaign, my parents relented.
