world's first space hotel

The world’s first space hotel will accommodate 400 people

The Gateway Foundation has released the design of the world’s first commercial space hotel. The hotel will be able to accommodate 400 people at a time. The hotel will also have a basketball court and trampoline of low gravity.

Construction of this hotel will be completed in 2025 but it has now been ranked as the world’s first space hotel.

In an interview, the hotel’s designer, Tim Altor, claimed it would be more luxurious than any cruise ship. “There will be a lot of things that you see in the cruise ship,” he said. There will be restaurants, bars, musical concerts, movie screenings, and educational seminars.

The company plans to send 100 people to the hotel every week at its launch in 2025. By 2030, there will be two such stations in space. Where 500 people will stay permanently and 200 tourists  will visit there every week

Chandrayan 2

Modi government drowns 978 crores of poor Indians on Chandrayan 2

The mission station “Chandrayan 2” sent to the opposite side of the moon by the Indian Institute of Space Research (ISRO) has been crashed on the surface of the moon just before the landing.

The mission is believed to have failed. The mission cost the Indian rupees 978 crore which equates to 2130 Pakistani rupees.

According to the details, the Chandrayan 2 mission continued to work well throughout its journey, but when its moon lander “Vikram” started to rise to the surface of the moon, the contact with the ground was disconnected. Since then, Chandrayan 2 has been disconnected. It is estimated that the Chandran 2 mission has failed.

The moon rotates around the Earth in such a way that it always has only one direction towards us, while the other is hidden from our eyes. This phenomenon is called “Tidal Lock” in scientific terms.

The purpose of the Chandrayan 2 mission was to descend on this part of the moon and examine it, which is in the opposite direction from the Earth and is not visible to us. That is why it would be difficult to say anything about the failure of this space mission.

Apple is expected to introduce three smartphones as they introduced the last year which are iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR.

The selfie camera may also have a 12fps slow-motion video recording option. Pro models are said to have a reverse charging feature for the AirPod case.

The new iPhone may not have revolutionized the screen case. All three phones will be the same size and resolution as their predecessor.

The A13 chip will be added to the new phone. Heptech Touch will replace 3D Touch. Consumers will have to wait for 2020 for 5G connectivity.

brain-controlled video game

Scientists have developed a brain-controlled video game

Scientists in Switzerland have developed a technology that allows people to play video games with their brains.

According to reports, this technology is designed for people who cannot move due to severe physical disabilities. With this technology, such people will be able to play a video game.

With this technology, they want to create a system that helps people with disabilities move, scientists say.  By this, we can create wheelchairs that can be controlled with brain signals.

space stations

India planning tiny space stations after 2022

India is planning to build new tiny space stations and send them in space in the next decade.

India says this is for the advancement of Indian technology and to keep pace with the progressing world and help the world to explore space more easily.

ISRO chief K. Sivan said on Thursday that the ambitious project would follow successful launch of a manned space flight scheduled by 2022.

A space station is capable of hosting crew members for years on end and provides facilities for experiments and support vehicles to dock.

Google’s self-driving car company escalates battle with Uber

A self-driving car company founded by Google is presenting new evidence to support allegations that a former manager stole technology sold to Uber to help the ride-hailing service build its own robot-powered vehicles.

Waymo, a project hatched by Google eight years ago, wove its tale of deceit in sworn statements filed Friday in a San Francisco federal court.

The documents try to make a case that former Waymo manager Anthony Levandowski conceived a scheme to heist key trade secrets before leaving the company early last year to launch an autonomous vehicle startup that he had been discussing with Uber.

It’s the latest salvo in a battle that started last month when Waymo sued Levandowski and Uber for alleged theft of the technology for “LiDAR,” an array of sensors that enable self-driving cars to see what’s around them so they can safely navigate roads. Experts say an effective LiDAR system typically takes years to develop.

After leaving Waymo, Levandowski started a self-driving truck company called Otto that Uber bought for $680 million to accelerate an expansion into autonomous vehicles.

Uber brushed off Waymo’s claims as “a baseless attempt to slow down a competitor.”

Waymo is mounting its attack with the help of one of Levandowski’s former colleagues, Pierre-Yves Droz, the leader of Waymo’s LiDAR project.

In a sworn statement, Droz said Levandowski confided in January 2016 that he planned to “replicate” Waymo’s technology at Otto. A Google forensics expert said he determined that Levandowski began downloading thousands of files containing Waymo’s trade secrets in December 2015, according to another sworn statement.

Levandowski had previously acknowledged to Droz that he began discussing self-driving cars with Uber in 2015, according to the documents. Levandowski, “told me that it would be nice to create a new self-driving car startup and that Uber would be interested in buying the team responsible for the LiDAR we were developing at Google,” Droz said in his declaration.

Then, again in January 2016, Levandowski said that he had been at Uber’s San Francisco headquarters seeking an investment in his startup, Droz said.

Waymo also filed papers seeking a court order to block Uber from using any of the technology that it believes Levandowski stole.

If a judge grants that request, it could force Uber to halt its current tests of self-driving cars in Pittsburgh and Phoenix. It’s unclear how much of the technology targeted in Waymo’s lawsuit is being used in the Uber self-driving cars that are currently picking up passengers in those cities.

Levandowski wasn’t alone in his alleged betrayal, according to Waymo.

Other sworn statements filed Friday identified two other former Waymo employees accused of stealing technology in July 2016 shortly before they joined Uber. They are: Sameer Kshirsagar, Waymo’s former global supply manager, and Radu Radutu, an engineer in Waymo’s LiDAR department.

The dispute between Waymo and Uber highlights the high stakes in the race to build self-driving cars that promise not only to revolutionise the way people get around but also the automobile industry. Waymo and Uber are two of the early leaders, while long-established car companies such as Ford, Toyota and General Motors are scrambling to catch up.

Waymo now operates as a subsidiary of Google’s corporate parent, Alphabet Inc.

Facebook says its data can’t be used for ‘surveillance’

Facebook is prohibiting developers from using the massive amount of data it collects on users for surveillance. This includes using such data to monitor activists and protesters.

The company said Monday that it is making an existing policy “explicit.” Facebook says it has already taken action against developers who created or marketed tools meant to be used for surveillance.

It says it wants to “be sure everyone understands the underlying policy and how to comply.”

Last fall, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) obtained records that Facebook and its Instagram service provided user data access to Geofeedia, which develops a monitoring product marketed to law enforcement.

The ACLU said at the time that while both Instagram and Facebook cut off access after finding out about this, Facebook did not have a “public policy specifically prohibiting developers” from taking user data for surveillance.

The new prohibition states that developers — who get access to user data from Facebook to create apps — should protect “the information you receive from us against unauthorised access, use, or disclosure. For example, don’t use data obtained from us to provide tools that are used for surveillance.”

The ACLU report says the data the companies provided to Geofeedia included only public posts, not those that users restricted to just friends or in some other way.

But such access to Facebook data is still valuable to third parties because it would be very difficult to collect and comb through all the stuff on their own.

According to the ACLU, Facebook had provided Geofeedia with access to a data feed called the “Topic Feed API,” which is supposed to be a tool for advertisers.

But Geofeedia could use it to obtain a feed of public Facebook posts that mentioned a specific topic, place or event — for example, “monitor hashtags used by activists and allies, or target activist groups as ‘overt threats,'” Matt Cagle, attorney for the ACLU of Northern California, wrote last October.

Facebook terminated this access nearly a month earlier after being notified about it by the ACLU.
