Astronomers Discover 16 Planet

Astronomers have discovered 50 new planets outside our solar system by using the HARPS planet hunters.

A total of 16 planets have a larger size than on Earth. One of the outer solar planet is orbiting at the edge of the habitable zone, where conditions could support life and home to living things on Earth.

Learning to do with the nature of all the planets discovered by HARPS, scientists revealed 40 percent of the stars is similar to the sun. But at least there is a planet that has a lighter weight than Saturunus planet.

"The discovery of HARPS has exceeded all expectations, and includes a vast population of the planet that has a size larger than Earth and have the same type beberpa Neptune, all the planets in general, are similar to the Sun," said Michel Major, President of HARPS, University of Geneva, Switzerland.

"While this is better than the results show the speed in terms of discoveries of planets outside our solar system," he added.

Quoted by TG Daily, on Tuesday (09/13/2011), one of the planet that has a 3.6 times greater than the mass of the Earth called HD 85512 b. The planet is at the edge of the habitable zone around a star that is likely to have water and almost the same as Earth. To which can then be used as human habitation in the future.

"This is the lowest-mass planet discovered by radial velocity method, the planet is potentially located in the habitable zone of stars and is the second low-mass planets have been discovered by HARPS in the habitable zone," said Lisa Kaltenegger an expert on the habitability of extrasolar planets.

According to local authorities, astronomers believe they have discovered planets are more likely to live to around stars similar to our sun.

"In ten or twenty years, which should have a list of potentially habitable planets in the solar neighborhood. This is an important thing to do," he said.

Former Rocket Capable Of Help The Colonization Of Mars

A private space agencies of the United States (U.S.), said the rocket used may help humans to colonize Mars.

Quoted by AFP on Saturday (10/01/2011), a private aerospace company called SpaceX Agnesi, is building a rocket that can be reused (reusable), to launch and return to Earth.

"The rocket of this type is expected to one day help humans colonize the planet Mars," said Elon Musk, SpaceX founder.

The rocket was later re-usable version of the Falcon 9 rocket, which last year used by SpaceX to put his space capsule in a low Earth orbit, in a series of missions last year.

SpaceX founder, said that by building a reusable rocket will be able to save millions of dollars, they also increase the likelihood of humans living on Mars.

"A reusable rocket system is needed, which can be used over and over. This may increase the likelihood of human beings to colonize the planet Mars," said Musk.

BlackBerry Games That Make Addicted

After months of July, RIM launched the BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) SDK (Software Development Kit), applications that make use of this fuel began to appear in the App World. There is an exception to games that use the fuel.

One of them is very interesting and very exciting playing is Caro. The application of this game was made by Louis Tang, a software developer in Vietnam. Caro has just published the August 22, 2011, and then, but users of this day is 250 thousand.

Caro TicTacToe game is similar to a larger grid that is 15x15. The winner is the one who can connect the symbols S or X to 5 points. The integration of this game with the fuel, allowing users to play this game with BBM contacts.

The way to start playing is to invite a contact BBM, which also has games of this Caro, after the main opponent accepts the invitation, then the game can begin.

Caro statistics record a victory, defeat, draw / set and level. These statistics are published in the standings ( In addition to integration with the fuel, Caro also be connected with your Facebook account that allows the installation of Caro on Facebook wall activity.

To play the game Caro, BlackBerry must meet the following requirements:

Google: The acquisition of Motorola caused Disaster

Google after the purchase of Motorola created a lot of envy of the vendors client users Android operating system, but the ambitious Internet giant is trying to avoid it.

As quoted from Total Telecom on Tuesday (09/27/2011), Eric Schmidt, Google Inc. CEO., Saying they will not contribute to the mobility Holdings Inc.. acquisitions after some time, fearing that such action could cause a negative impact on the global ecosystem Android.

Schmidt said Google is dangerous to alienate other software vendor, if Motorola helped to develop the field.

"If it does (Motorola) bothers me then that Allah, because if you do the result will be a disaster, and ruin the whole ecosystem," said Schmidt.

Some time ago, Google announced the acquisition of Motorola USD12, 5 million dollars. The move was seen by many observers as Google's efforts to increase its technology patents, and also the desire to add more devices are compatible with your operating system.

Android OS itself since it was first released in 2007, has been doing a lot of popularity amongst many smartphone users worldwide.

According to recent data published by Nielsen Mobile Insights, approximately 56 percent of users prefer to buy a smartphone based on Android OS handset.

'Lost City' Discovered in Turkey

A group of scientists and archaeologists from the University of Canakkale has found the remains of an ancient lost city, and even over the city of Troy, who is buried in the Dardanelles.

As quoted in the National Turkish, Wednesday (09/28/2011), a study led by Professor Rustem Aslan, found the remains of an ancient city in the region Erenkoy, Canakkale, Turkey. After getting the evidence, the research team continues to improve the intensity of research and found evidence of many other complementary ..

Based on research, the scientists concluded that the objects the results derived from an ancient city seven thousand years old. Then, from these results that also believe ba

"We are confident of pottery were found, it is estimated that the city was about 5,000 years before Christ. We also believe that culture on the coast of the Bosphorus and the Dardanelles had been buried under the water," said Professor Rustem Aslan.

"The things we found was 90 percent under water. This is what might indicate the water level of the Dardanelles in the past," he said.

The discovery of this ancient city is of vital importance to scientists and historians of Turkey, as it could be a source of funds for excavations that are next.

Hackers Iran lied to the International Internet Users

A recent study found that Trend Micro Internet users in 40 different networks of Internet providers and the University of Iranians turned out to contain fake SSL certificate issued by DigiNotar.

Providers and suppliers sites SSL certificate authority certificate in the Netherlands, was used to spy on Internet users in Iran on a large scale.

In theory, false certificates could be used to trick users into visiting a fake version of a Web site, or used to control communication with the actual site without the user noticing.

But the trick of a false certificate, a hacker must be able to direct Internet traffic routed through a server he controls. That's something only the Internet service provider, or government with a single command, and can do so easily.

Iranian state itself does not have a CA (Certificate Authority) itself. If they do, they can only issue a certificate naughty deceived. However, because they do not have to necessarily require an official certificate from a trusted CA as DigiNotar.

Trend Micro to see this rarity that makes the site an SSL certificate provider, DigiNotar under the mercy of hackers in Iran. So was launched through its official statement on Saturday (17/09/2011).

At this time about hundreds of thousands of unique IP addresses access to Iran calls using fake certificates issued by DigiNotar. Trend Micro detects thousands of unique IP addresses requested has been identified. On 4 August the number of requests to increase rapidly until a certificate is revoked on August 29.

The evidence was based on data collected from time to time, thanks to the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network is showing fake SSL certificate issued by DigiNotar, used to spy on Internet users in Iran on a large scale.

Most Dangerous Fighter Aircraft in the World

F-22 Raptor stealth fighter is made in the United States. The aircraft was originally planned to be used as air superiority fighter for fighter aircraft used against the Soviet Union, but the aircraft is equipped for ground attack, electronic warfare and signals intelligence. This aircraft through a long period of development, prototype versions were named YF-22, three years before it was officially adopted named F/A-22, and eventually was named the F-22A when it officially came into use in December 2005. Lockheed Martin Aeronautics is the prime contractor responsible for producing most of the airframe, armament, and the assembly of the F-22. Then his partner, Boeing Integrated Defense Systems manufactures the wings, avionics equipment, and pilot training and maintenance. 


Advanced Tactical Fighter (ATF) is a contract for the demonstration and validation program that made the United States Air Force to develop a new generation air superiority fighter to face threats from outside the United States, including the development of the Su-27 aircraft-grade Soviet era. 

In 1981, the United States Air Force to map the requirements to be met a new fighter aircraft that is planned to replace the F-15 Eagle. ATF planned to integrate modern technology such as advanced metal and composite materials, advanced control systems, high-powered propulsion systems, and stealth aircraft technology. 
Proposals for the contract was filed in 1986, by two contractor teams, namely the Lockheed-Boeing-General Dynamics and Northrop-McDonnell Douglas, which was elected in October 1986 for the demonstration and validation phase for 50 months, which eventually produced two prototypes, the YF -22 and the YF-23. 

The aircraft is planned to be the most advanced U.S. aircraft at the beginning of the 21st century, therefore, this aircraft is the most expensive fighter aircraft, at a price of U.S. $ 120 million per unit, or U.S. $ 361 million per unit when added to the cost of development. In April 2005, the total development cost of this program is U.S. $ 70 billion, causing the number of aircraft planned to be made down to 438, then 381, and now 180, from the initial plan of 750 aircraft. One of the factors causing this reduction is due to the F-35 Lightning II will have the same technology as the F-22, but with a cheaper unit price. 


F-22 production version was first delivered to Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada, on January 14, 2003. Final testing and evaluation conducted on October 27, 2004. At the end of 2004, there have been 51 Raptor is sent, with 22 more booked in the fiscal 2004 budget. Destruction of the first production version occurred on December 20, 2004 at the time of takeoff, the pilot ejected safely after a few moments before it crashed. Investigation concluded that the fall of power interruptions when shut off the engine before takeoff causing damage to the control system. 

F-22 Armament 

F-22 is designed to carry air-to-air missiles are stored internally in the fuselage so as not to interfere with the ability silumannya. Missile launch was preceded by opening the valve arms and missiles is driven downward by a hydraulic system. This aircraft could also carry bombs such as Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) and Small-Diameter Bomb (SDB) is more recent. In addition to internal storage, this aircraft can also carry weapons on four external points, but if it is used will greatly reduce the ability of stealth, speed, and agility. For backup guns, F-22 carrying automatic cannon M61A2 Vulcan 20 mm stored in the right side of the aircraft, the gun was carrying 480 rounds, and will be discharged if fired continuously for about five seconds. Nevertheless, the F-22 can use this gun when the fight without being detected, which will be needed when the missile is up. 

Stealth capabilities of the F-22 

Modern fighter aircraft are wearing contemporary Western features that make them more difficult to detect on radar than previous aircraft, such as the use of radar absorbing material. In the F-22, besides the use of radar absorbing material, shape and form F-22 is also designed, and other details such as the hook on the aircraft and the pilot's helmet also been assembled for tersembunyi.F-22 is also designed to emit infra-red more difficult to be tracked by a missile "heat seekers". 

However, the F-22 does not depend on the radar absorbing material such as the F-117 Nighthawk. The use of this material could raise the issue because it is not resistant to bad weather. And unlike the stealth bomber B-2 Spirit that require special hangars, the F-22 can be given regular maintenance on the hangar. In addition, the F-22 also has a system called "Signature Assessment System", which will indicate when the aircraft radar footprint is already high, until eventually require repairs and maintenance. 

Afterburner usage also makes aircraft emissions more easily captured by the radar, it is thought the reason why the F-22 is focused to have the ability supercruise. 

This Is The Wrong Aircraft Design ?

This aircraft design that I think is unique, what do you think?

JEANS PC: Glasses Can Make You Work Longer Hours At The Computer

When viewed from the lens design is J! NS PC (read: JEANS) is no different with the glasses hanging out, but you are wrong because these glasses that one can make your eyes do not tire quickly due to work on the computer too long. NS J! PC is claimed to reduce blue light (known as the Blue Light) to 55% issued by a monitor and this light usually causes rapid eye fatigue.

In theory, with these glasses you can work longer hours at the computer of origin willing to pay 3990 yen for this PC J! NS. A more interesting type is J! NS Moisture ie glasses that will reduce the rapid dry eye.
Its design is quite unique because on the side there is a small box filled with water to keep your eye so that moisture does not dry quickly.
 J!NS Moisture is also sold at the same price of 3990 yen

Woman Paying 180 Dollars For A iPad From Wood

A woman thinks she has won a bargain after getting an iPad cheaply in McDonald's parking lot.

But was surprised Ashley McDowell (22) after arriving at home, instead of getting advanced tablet, iPad bought $ 180 worth are just a piece of wood painted with the Apple logo.
Ashley told the Spartanburg County Sheriff's office in South Carolina that he was duped by two men on Monday night, which offers cheap iPad him.

Both men mengatkan that they buy computers in bulk and sell them at a discounted price of each $ 300 below the regular list price of $ 499.

Although Ashley said she had only $ 180, both men readily agreed to give an additional discount, and he immediately paid in cash without first checking the contents of the box.

Arriving home, Ashley immediately opened the package and found a painted board, framed with black ribbons and icons web browser, email inbox and iPhoto are deliberately placed. Even a Best Buy sales receipt in a box is also false.

Scientists Create Anti-bullet Skin

Jalila Essaidi, scientists from the Netherlands, making a unique innovation by creating bulletproof skin. Innovations were made in the project named "2.6g 329m / s", based on the weight and speed of a .22-caliber long rifle bullet.

Bulletproof skin is made by first harvest spider silk proteins from genetically engineered goat milk. Proteins were collected and woven so as to produce the material as strong as steel. Then, coupled with human skin cells cultured in a way.

Culture results showed bulletproof skin tissue. In a YouTube video, as shown by Essaidi under this article, artificial skin was successfully stop a bullet, though not the caliber and high-speed.

The development of this innovation is still needed, but Essaidi've got a lot of wishful thinking. "Imagine a bulletproof vest with spider silk that could catch a bullet in the modern period with an arrow Genghis Khan," said Essaidi.

Even crazier, he said, "Imagine that we replace the keratin, the protein responsible for skin hardness, with spider silk. It is possible to insert genes spider silk makers in the human genome so as to create bulletproof man."

Aka science fiction only a fantasy? Probably yes. However, if the aim is only bulletproof vests, even now already exists. Creating bulletproof man is a more revolutionary goal. We wait for further research developments.

For those who want to see, leather bulletproof successfully created Essaidi is now on display at the National Museum of Natural History Naturalis, Leiden, The Netherlands, until January 8, 2012 to come.

Processor Made Of Sand

Sand, a quarter of its parts formed from silicon, which is the most abundant chemical element on earth after oxygen. Sand (mainly quartz), has a high percentage of silicon in the form of Silicon Dioxide (SiO2) and sand is the main ingredient for producing semiconductor. 

After obtaining mentahan of sand and separates the silicon, the excess material removed. Then, purified silicon gradually until it reaches the quality of 'semiconductor manufacturing quality', or so-called 'electronic grade silicon'. Purification resulted in something very powerful where 'electronic grade silicon' can only have one 'alien atom' in every one billion silicon atoms. Once this stage is complete purification of silicon, silicon smelting phase. From the picture above, we can see how the large-sized crystals that arise from the melted silicon. The result is a single crystal of the so-called 'Ingot'. 

Single crystals 'Ingot' is formed from 'electronic grade silicon'. Big one 'Ingot' roughly 100 Kilograms or 220 pounds, and has a high purity silicon up to 99.9999 percent. 

After that, 'Ingot' entering the stage of shredding. 'Ingot' in thin slices to produce a 'silicon discs', called 'wafers'. Some 'Ingot' can stand up to 5 feet. 'Ingot' also has a different diameter depending on how large the 'wafers' are required. CPU nowadays typically require 'wafers' with size of 300 mm. 

Once sliced, 'wafers' polished until absolutely perfectly smooth, mirror-like surface into a very, very smooth. In fact, Intel does not manufacture its own 'Ingots' and 'wafers', but Intel's purchase of the companies 'third-party'. Intel processors with 45nm technology, using 'wafers' with a size of 300mm (12 inch), whereas the first time Intel makes chips, Intel is using 'wafers' with a size of 50mm (2 inch). 

Blue liquid as seen in the picture above, is 'Photo Resist' as used in 'Movie' in photography. 'Wafers' are played in this stage so that the layers can be uniformly smooth and thin. 

Within this phase, 'Photo Resist' lit 'Ultra Violet'. Chemical reactions that occur in this process is similar to the 'film' camera that happens when we press the shutter (Click!). 

The most powerful area or stand in the 'Wafer' be flexible and fragile due to the effects of the rays 'Ultra Violet'. Lighting to be managed by using protective functions like a stencil. When exposed to light 'Ultra Violet', a protective layer to make the circuit pattern. In the manufacture of processors, it is very important and key to repeat this process repeated until the layers above the layer below it, and so on. 

Lens in the middle serves to shrink the light into a smaller focus. 

From the picture above, we can picture what if one 'Transistor' we see with the naked eye. The transistor acts like a switch, controlling the flow of electric current in the 'Chip' computers. Intel researchers have developed transistors so small that about 30 million 'Transistor' can be lodged at the end of the 'Pin'. 

Once exposed to light 'Ultra Violet', 'field Photo Resist' absolutely devastated. The picture above reveals a pattern 'Photo Resist' created by the protective layer. This pattern is the beginning of 'transistors', 'interconnects', and matters relating to electricity begins from here.

Although the field is destroyed, a layer of 'Photo Resist' still protect the material 'Wafer' so it would not be in the sketch. The part that is not protected will be etched with chemicals. 

Once etched, the layer 'Photo Resist' is removed and the desired shape to appear. 

'Photo Resist' re-used and irradiated with a beam of 'Ultra Violet'. 'Photo Resist' which tersinari then washed before stepping to the next stage, the washing process is called 'Ion Doping', the process by which ion particles and bang it 'Wafer', so that the chemical properties of silicone modified, so the CPU can control the electrical current. 

Through a process called 'ion implantation' (part of the process of ion doped) silicon area on the 'wafers' shot by the ions. Ions implanted in silicon in order to change between silicon with electrical power. Ion driven to the surface 'Wafer' at high speed. Electric fields accelerate ions with a velocity of more than 300.000 Km / h (about 185.000 mph) 

After the ion implanted, 'Photo Resist' is removed, and green colored material that is now embedded in the image 'Alien Atoms' 

This transistor is almost complete. Three holes have been tersketsa in the insulating layer (reddish purple), which is above the transistor. Three holes will be filled with copper, which serves to connect the transistors to other transistors. 

'Wafers' entering the stage of 'copper sulphate solution' at this level. Copper ions are stored in a transistor through a process called 'Electroplating'. Copper ions runs from the positive terminal (anode) to the negative terminal (cathode). 

Copper ions have a thin layer on the surface of the 'wafers'. 

Mashed excess material, leaving a very thin layer of copper. 

Well already started complicated. Much is made of metal layers to interconnect the various transistors. How is this connected series of relationships, it is determined by the architectural engineering and design teams that develop the capabilities of each processor. Where computer chips look very flat, it actually has more than 20 layers to create complex circuits. If you look with a magnifying glass, you will see a complex network of circuits and transistors that looks futuristic, 'Multi-Layered Highway System'. 

This is just a super small sample of the 'Wafer' is going through a phase of the first test capability. At this stage, a test pattern is sent to each chip, then the response of the chip will be monitored and compared with 'The Right Answer ". 

After test results showed that the 'Wafer' pass, 'Wafer' is cut into a section called 'Dies'. Try the skipper can see, the process was really complicated, but the result was a small talaga. In the leftmost picture that there are 6 groups 'Wafer'. 

'Dies' which passed the test, will be included into the next stage of the 'Packaging'. 'Dies' which does not pass, thrown away. 

This is a picture of the 'Die', which had been cut earlier in the process. 'Die' in this picture is the 'Die' from the Intel Core i7 Processor. 

Undercoat, 'Die', and 'heatspreader' fitted together to form the 'Processor'. Green bottom layer, used to form electrical and 'Mechanical Interface' for the processor in order to interact with a PC system. 'Heatspreader' is 'Thermal Interface' in which the cooling solution is applied, so that the processor can remain cool in operation. 

'Microprocessor' is the most complex products in the world. In fact, to make it require hundreds of stages and which we described earlier is just that important.

During the last test for the processor, the processor in the test characteristics, such as power usage and maximum frequency.

Based on previous test results, Processor Processor grouped with the same abilities. This process is called a 'binning', 'binning' is determined from the maximum processor frequency, then the stack Processor divided and sold in accordance with the specification stable. 

Processor that has been packaged and tested, go to the factory (eg for using that Toshiba laptop) or retailing (eg in computer stores)
