Amazon founder Jeff Bezos reveals spaceship model and plans to put humans

first_img Short URL By Associated Press May 10th 2019, 9:19 AM Image: Patrick Semansky Friday 10 May 2019, 9:19 AM Amazon founder Jeff Bezos reveals spaceship model and plans to put humans on the moon Bezos said his space company Blue Origin will land a robotic ship the size of a small house on the moon. Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Image: Patrick Semansky 21,111 Views AMAZON FOUNDER JEFF Bezos has announced plans to send a spaceship and humans to the moon.Bezos said his space company Blue Origin will land a robotic ship the size of a small house and capable of carrying four rovers using a newly designed rocket engine, on the moon. It would be followed by a version that could bring people to the moon along the same timeframe as NASA’s proposed 2024 return.Bezos revealed a mock-up of the Blue Moon vehicle at a presentation on Thursday saying: “This is an incredible vehicle and it’s going to the moon”.The announcement for the usually secretive space company came with all the spectacle of an Apple product launch with a convention ballroom lined with shimmering stars.Astronauts and other space luminaries sat in the audience before Bezos unveiled the boxy ship.Bezos, who also owns newspaper The Washington Post, walked off the stage without providing details around launch dates, customers and the plan for humans on his rockets.Blue Origin Vice President, Clay Mowry, said 2024 was not a concrete goal for a mission with people and said that was more up to NASA as a potential customer.Former U.S. Representative, Robert Walker, a private space consultant who is working with Blue Origin, said it plans for a 2023 launch without people.In 2017, Blue Origin revealed plans to send an unmanned, reusable rocket to the moon.The company had a successful launch earlier this month, reusing one of its rockets for a fifth time.Race to the moonThe new moon race has a lower profile than the one in the 1960s.Private companies as well as a number of countries are aiming to secure the next big advance in space exploration. NASA has previously revealed details of a mission to place astronauts back on the lunar surface by 2024.While a $30 million prize for private companies to send robotic probes to the moon went unclaimed last year, one of the competitors, from an Israeli private nonprofit, crashed last month as it tried to land.China has landed a rover on the moon’s far side, SpaceX last year announced plans to send a Japanese businessman around the moon in 2023, and the Israeli nonprofit said it will give it a second shot.The first successful moon landing was by the Soviet Union in 1966 with Luna 9, followed by the US four months later.NASA put the first, and only, people on the moon in the Apollo program, starting with Apollo 11 in July 1969.“The next leap in space will be fueled by commercial companies like Blue Origin and commercial innovation,” said former Obama White House space adviser Phil Larson, now an assistant dean of engineering at the University of Colorado.

On Monday, the delegation visited Alimentos S. A. and Nutrica S.A., two businesses in Guatemala which buy substantial quantities of U.S.-processed soy flour from Decatur and Cedar Rapids and U.S. yellow corn to put a variety of blended foods on the market.They also compete for contracts to provide locally processed corn-soy blend to international food aid organizations, such as the World Food Programme, that distribute the products in Guatemala and the region.”We have seen, once again, Illinois soy protein sold to help feed the world, this time in Guatemala,” said Duane.  The group started the day with a briefing from Henry Schmick, USDA’s Agricultural Counselor for Guatemala, who reported that the U.S. exports approximately $1 billion of assorted agricultural products to Guatemala every year. Over the weekend, the team visited a Rotary Club-supported soycow, in partnership with the World Soy Foundation.last_img read more

Firefox Maker Mozilla Starts Testing Social VR Hubs

first_imgFirefox maker Mozilla wants to bring social virtual reality to the browser: The company unveiled a test version of a new social VR platform called Hubs Thursday, which allows users to chat with each other in virtual reality, even if they use otherwise incompatible VR headsets.“Because we are using web standards (WebVR and eventually WebXR) to deliver this content, we are able to support every single Mixed Reality headset,” wrote Mozilla chief R&D officer Sean White Thursday. “You can enjoy this experience with advanced hardware such as an Oculus Rift or an HTC Vive, or you can use alternatives such as a Daydream or cardboard viewer.”Hubs has been developed by Mozilla’s social VR team, which includes a few key former employees of AltspaceVR, the social VR company that was snapped up by Microsoft last year. And it’s not the only VR project coming it out Mozilla. The browser maker announced a dedicated browser for AR and VR devices dubbed Firefox Reality earlier this month. But while Firefox Reality will be limited to a handful of headsets at launch, Hubs can already be tried with numerous devices today. In fact, users don’t even need to have a VR device to join in. They can also access Hubs with a desktop browser, or a mobile device, to launch their own chat rooms or join existing rooms.“In the coming months we will continue to release new tools and features, as we learn together through use and iteration,” White said. “This includes kits to create your own custom spaces, powerful avatar and identity options, integrations with existing communications tools, and more.” ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Marvel Movies and Marvel TV Need to Cross Over

first_img ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Director Explains Thanos’ Faceoff With Captain America‘Marvels’ Expands Marvel’s Podcast Universe Stay on target We’re getting dangerously close to the release of Avengers: Infinity War, the first half of the final part of the climactic third phase of the first decade of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We’re so excited to witness mind-blowing team-ups never-before-seen on film. Iron Man and Doctor Strange! Thor and the Guardians of the Galaxy! Wakanda and White People!But as exciting as these crossovers will surely be, they also leave us feeling a little bittersweet because they still won’t be reaching their full potential. If Marvel and its intricate cinematic continuity really want to excite us again post-Infinity War and into Phase 4, now is the time to finally have Marvel movies and Marvel TV shows unite.Marvel movies and Marvel TV have always had a weird big-and-little sibling type relationship, but things started off somewhat close with the premiere of Agents of Shield back in 2013. It starred Agent Coulson and made his “death” in The Avengers a big mystery of the season. The pilot was directed by Joss Whedon while much of the show’s creative talent came from Whedon shows. Its plot took a bunch of cues from Captain America: The Winter Soldier in ways that made a lot of satisfying sense. Nick Fury and Peggy Carter even showed up.But as the show went on its connections to the movies just grew more tenuous and one-sided, like the show was begging for table scraps. We wrote a post years ago mocking these vague, embarrassing attempts to appear relevant. Plus, the huge, seemingly world-shaping events that did happen on Shield (Inhumans, Hydra’s alien connections, Ghost Rider) could only feel but so important because you just knew they would never come up during the movies.Meanwhile, we also have the sexy Marvel Netflix side of things. Despite their iffy quality, I think viewers generally appreciate the difference between this smaller, grimier shows versus the huge spectacle of the movies. But the interconnectedness is also key to the success of anything with Marvel slapped on it. And yet sometimes it feels like these TV people don’t even know a literal Viking god exists in their reality. You can give us a No-Prize, but the non-reaction breaks the illusion even more than said literal Viking god.The Defenders definitely followed the same model as The Avengers, establishing Daredevil and Jessica Jones and Luke Cage and Iron Fist as separate heroes before uniting. But there are other whole articles out there about the ways these New York heroes avoid directly referencing the 9/11-level Battle of New York between The Avengers and the Chitauri. Jessica Jones makes Spider-Man jokes like he’s a pop culture character and not a real thing, which he is in her world/city. And don’t hold your breath waiting for any Avengers to talk about that big fight between the Defenders and an ancient ninja death cult inside a dragon skeleton beneath a big hole in Manhattan.This problem is only going to get worse the more Marvel shows and movies there are. Sometimes it doesn’t even seem like the TV shows talk to each other. Despite introducing the concept, Agents of Shield did nothing with the short-lived Inhumans show. Will Runaways and Cloak & Dagger and Squirrel Girl be similarly locked to their own isolated corners of the universe? And what’s going to happen if, say, Thanos kills half of all life on Earth on the big screen? Will that even come up at all on these shows?The early Marvel movies had similar issues. Why didn’t Captain America care about the President of The United States of America being kidnapped in Iron Man 3? And things may get even more confusing depending on what happens with this fall’s Spidey spin-off Venom. But the consistency of the way in which the TV shows are marginalized, along with the inherently cheaper production value, makes them feel much lesser, almost bootleg and non-canon.We have somewhat of an idea why this is happening. First off, movies and TV operate on different schedules. It takes several years to write and film a movie whereas TV puts out up to 22 new hours of content every season. So coordination would be understandably tricky in ways normal viewers would not, and should not, be expected to understand.Also tricky is the thorny political situation inside Marvel’s corporate structure. Exciting! For years MCU mastermind Kevin Feige reported to (allegedly) awful Marvel boss Ike Perlmutter. But now Feige, and the movies he produces, report straight to Disney. However, since TV is still Ike’s domain, there’s apparently bad blood between the two silos, keeping them from fully cooperating. It’s why Alfre Woodard appears in both Luke Cage and Civil War as two different people, or why character Tilda Johnson was almost in Luke Cage and Black Panther played by separate actresses.But whatever is going on these millionaires need to get over each other, stop being babies, and play with their toys together. Fanboys rage at Fox’s holding onto X-Men rights as an obstacle to a complete MCU (until Disney just buys Fox), but Marvel movies and Marvel TV are having the same issue now despite being the same company. It’s even harder to justify!We want this to happen because we can’t help but think of the potential if Marvel fully leveraged its movies and TV divisions. Kingpin fights Spider-Man. Luke Cage takes a spiritual journey to Wakanda. Wanda Maximoff and Nico Minoru just be witches together. We just want an Avengers movie that finally has enough superheroes to cover up the sun and blot out the light.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Foursquares Dennis Crowley on Building a Massive Community

first_imgJuly 20, 2012 Enroll Now for Free min read Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. If you’ve “checked in” to an urban hotspot, say thank you to Dennis Crowley, the 36-year-old co-founder of location-based social tool Foursquare.Using Foursquare’s smartphone app, users can discover local businesses and places to go, and share their discoveries and whereabouts with friends — often while earning badges and saving money through special offers. Foursquare says it has 20 million registered users and works with more than 750,000 businesses, large and small.In 2010, about a year after launching Foursquare, Crowley turned down separate acquisition offers from tech giants Facebook and Yahoo!. Foursquare’s most recent round of financing — $50 million last year from Andreessen Horowitz, among other groups — reportedly valued the company at $600 million.We sat down with Crowley to discuss what makes a tech startup great. What follows is an edited version of our conversation:Related: HTC’s Cher Wang on Innovation and the ‘It’ ProductEntrepreneur: What sets apart successful startups that attract millions of consumers from those that never really get off the ground?Crowley: Whether it’s Google or Twitter or Facebook, they all add something to the way that I share content or solve problems in my everyday life.We built Foursquare literally for ourselves and for our group of 10 friends. And it turns out that when you build things that 10 of your friends like, their friends like them and their friends like them — and then you suddenly get to millions of users.Entrepreneur: How do you generate ideas and figure out which ones to pursue?Crowley: I’ve worked at companies where the ideas come from the top down, and you build what you’re told to build. That probably works for some companies.We’re different because we’ve hired so many rock stars. No one wants to be the guy that just sits there and is executing on someone else’s ideas. We have to think up these different ways of allowing people to get their ideas out there.Entrepreneur: How does an entrepreneur know when to sell? Did you make the right call by not selling to Facebook or Yahoo?Crowley: I got some advice a while ago that, if you can’t see where the ride is going to end, then you don’t want to get off of it. We have our own vision of what the finish line looks like and what the product looks like a year from now. That idea is different from what Google is chasing and different from what Facebook is chasing.That’s the thing that we can do better than anyone else: execute on our ideas. That’s the focus that we need to have to be successful.Related: From $200 Million to $500K: Lessons from Digg’s Slow DemiseEntrepreneur: What’s your advice for tech entrepreneurs who want to build something big?Crowley: For a long time, we had these ideas for things we wanted to build, and we listened to people tell us that the ideas were silly or stupid or weren’t going to work.You can’t listen to them, and you really have to build this stuff on your own. Prove to yourself that it’s either a good idea or it’s not. …You have to be totally fine with throwing things away and realizing you might have to throw away five before you find one good thing.last_img read more

Thousands of Invisibles march for equal rights in Costa Rica

first_imgOne of the directors of the march, from a megaphone, shouted “Costa Rica is one of the last confessional states in the world. What an anachronism – I demand a secular state.”While common in the Middle East, countries with an official state religion almost have disappeared from the western hemisphere, although Costa Rica remains a Catholic country.“We are here so that they know that we exist, that we deserve the same rights,” said marcher Ester Molina. “In the country, there is a decline in human rights.”Lawmakers Carlos Gómgora, Carmen Muñoz and Manuel Monestel joined the movement. They helped scrub the walls of the Legislative Assembly with sponges and soap as marchers chanted about the alleged dirtiness and corruption taking place inside the assembly.Online social networks sparked the movement, almost 15,000 people signed a petition online called Protesters want Orozco to resign after he referred to homosexuality as a “strange practice” and called it “a sin that has a cure.”Sexual Diversity Movement President Marco Castillo announced that his organization will report Costa Rica to the international human rights commission for what he considers an “insult” to the rights of the gay community.Orozco also said that he opposes in vitro fertilization – Costa Rica is the only western hemisphere country to prohibit the practice. The legislator said that only high-income individuals would benefit from the technique because infertility is a problem “suffered by the upper class.”The Inter-American Court of Human Rights, with its headquarters in San José, will analyze a complaint in September about the prohibition of in vitro fertilization. Costa Rica could face fines for not legalizing the in vitro, which is considered a human rights violation.Who are the Invisibles? Learn more about the people asking for change in Costa Rica in this Friday’s edition of The Tico Times. Facebook Comments A couple thousand people in San José demanded equal rights in Costa Rica for issues such as homosexual rights, the establishment of a secular state, the approval of in vitro fertilization and immigrant rights – in a movement called “Marcha de los Invisibles” (“March of the Invisibles”).A diverse crowd, which included LGBT community members, heterosexual couples, and indigenous rights supporters – marched through the capital Saturday morning to the Legislative Assembly. Two weeks ago, a human rights committee in the assembly rejected a bill that guaranteed economic rights to heterosexual couples. Protesters waved signs calling for respect. Leaders of the march shouted chants through megaphones.“Morality is personal, human rights are universal.” read a colorful banner carried by the demonstrators. Local police monitoring the event said some 2,000 people attended the rally, although organizers said the number was closer to 5,000.The protest was called in retaliation for the Human Rights Commission vote. Marchers called for the ouster of evangelical legislator Justo Orozco, the head of the commission, whose statements against homosexual rights have caused a stir in the country.“INJusto [Unfair] Orozco, caveman,” “The problem is not God, it’s Justo.”  “Invisible no, here I am,” “I am visible, I have rights.” “We are happy lesbians, and we are here. “Gay, 100 percent human,” read some of the signs.

Costa Rica experiments with aquaponics to fight drought

first_imgThe Costa Rican government is launching a pilot aquaponics program in hopes of offering an alternative to farmers hit by drought.Agriculture and Livestock Ministry (MAG) officials are looking at possible implementation in the provinces of Guanacaste, Puntarenas and Alajuela, the most affected by severe drought conditions in recent years.Aquaponics is a production method that combines aquaculture — raising aquatic animals such as fish, crayfish or prawns in tanks or ponds — with hydroponics — cultivating plants in water — in a symbiotic environment.Water from the process is rich in minerals, especially ammonium widely found in fish waste, and it works as an effective fertilizer that reduces crops’ growing time by up to 50 percent.The process also reduces water use by up to 90 percent, according to research from MAG’s National Animal Health Service (SENASA).When done in ponds, the water can be used to irrigate large crop fields. Farm animals can drink it. And the fish can be sold as well as eaten by the farmers.Last month SENASA’s experts installed the first aquaponics system at a public high school in Sardinal, Guanacaste in order to start evaluating the results.The experimental module was built in Costa Rica, but program coordinator Luis Molina Carvajal said another nine systems will be imported from abroad and will be installed at high schools and other locations in those three provinces in the coming weeks.SENASA experts say results from the first system show it is both sustainable and efficient.“The system at Sardinal contains 3 cubic meters of water, started with 10 tilapia and is now capable of producing 18 kilograms of forage a day,” Molina told The Tico Times.Ministry officials have started informing farmer groups and chambers about the project, hoping they’ll be interested in promoting aquaponic projects among their members.Leaders of Guanacaste’s Federation of Cattle Farmer Chambers have already expressed interest in the program and SENASA will install one of the modules at the group’s facilities in Liberia.“We are also contacting other regional chambers and informing them about their options for obtaining loans and social assistance so that even small farmers can implement a module on their farms,” Molina said.The project is also being proposed as a way to produce forage at farms in the higher elevation areas of Cartago province, where grass has been affected by ash from the Turrialba volcano since last year.The exact cost of implementing an aquaponics system is one of the variables that ministry officials are trying to determine. So far they haven’t been able to find a local company able to supply the materials for a full system.“Currently we are finishing negotiations with a company in Mexico that offers the manufacture, installation and required training for maintaining the remaining nine systems,” Molina said. The experimental modules will be installed over the next three weeks.In addition to financing options, ministry officials are engaging in “persuasion efforts,” as Molina calls them. He said farmers can be reluctant to try new production techniques.“Weather conditions in Costa Rica traditionally have been mostly favorable for agriculture,” Molina said. “So our farmers are, for example, not used to storing fodder and feed for various months as farmers must do in countries where snow covers fields for up to six months, or who must grow all of their crops in greenhouses, like in Israel or Saudi Arabia. Our farmers usually want simple solutions.”Severe drought conditions in 2014 caused an approximately 75 percent reduction in pasture growth, Agriculture Minister Luis Felipe Arauz reported earlier this year.The reduced feed affected production — mostly in Guanacaste, Puntarenas and Alajuela —  with losses totaling some 5.8 million liters of milk, 2.5 million kilograms of meat and 2,400 kilograms of honey.Costa Rica’s agricultural sector lost at least $25.6 million last year due to drought, according to government data.
