Transfer of atomic mass with a photon solves the momentum paradox of light – Aalto University

http://www.aalto.fi/en/current/news/2017-06-30/ In a recent publication, Aalto University researchers show that in a transparent medium each photon is accompanied by an atomic mass density wave. The novel discovery solves the centennial momentum paradox of light.  If this theoretical finding is proven true with experiments, it can affect our understanding of universe: “Presently the Hubble’s law is explained

Launching Open Hardware Satellites – Hackster’s Blog

https://blog.hackster.io/launching-open-hardware-satellites-93813a1fe842 Created almost twenty years ago the CubeSat standard has lowered the barrier to entry to the point where you can put your own satellite into orbit for not much more than the price of a high end car. The 10 cm × 10 cm × 10 cm cubes have become so common that you can buy

ESA landed robot to Mars

ESA robotic exploration of Mars has landed.  There was a tense wait as ESA determines whether Schiaparelli probe has landed safely as no signal from it has been received so far- and just few minutes ago ESA’s mission control centre as spacecraft operators watched for the signal to return, there is now back-slapping, cheers and
