NASA Astronauts Replace Failed Computer During Spacewalk on Tuesday

Two US astronauts have successfully completed Tuesday what NASA calls a “space path” critical to repairing failed equipment that helps supply the International Space Station.

“We have declared victory,” said Rob Navias, the NASA commentator, about two hours’ walk from the emergency by space station chief Peggy Whitson, 57, and flight engineer Jack Fischer, 43 years.

The reason for the trip was the sudden Saturday breakup of a computer relay box known as a multiplexer-demultiplexer (MDM) unit. MDM – about the size of a small microwave oven and weighing 50 pounds (23 kilogrammes) on Earth – helps to use solar power, power generation and robotic equipment to the ISS.

It also regulates the operation of radiators and cooling circuits. Since there are two MDMs in the orbit, the loss of one does not affect the life of the crew or impede the operation of the station.

However, a spokesman for the space agency has described Tuesday’s mission as a “critical contingency space bridge” and qualified as “high priority” to replace the failed box when the spacewalk more possible.Durant shorter than normal – Which lasted only two hours and 46 minutes and much less than the typical 6.5 hours – Whitson took the initiative and replaced the MDM.

After removing the malfunctioning unit, he saw a few flakes of debris and returned briefly to the airlock for the equipment to be cleaned before installing the new box.

“We now have two healthy MDMs,” Navias said afterwards.

Fischer, making the second space stage of his career, have installed a pair of antennas in the US laboratory module Destiny to improve wireless communication capability for future space routes.

Manchester bomber may not have acted alone: UK minister

Manchester bomber may not have acted alone: UK minister

The suicide bomber who carried out the suicide attack in Manchester, which killed 22 people, may not have acted alone, British Secretary of State Amber Rudd said. It was a devastating time, which was more sophisticated than some of the attacks we’ve seen before, and it seems likely – you can – not do this alone, “Rudd said.
Salman Abedi, a native of Libya, exploded at the end of an Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena on Monday night, killing 22 people and wounding 64 others. After the attack, the level of terrorist threat in the UK rose To “critical”, indicating that security services believe that other attacks could be imminent.

These include Buckingham Palace, Downing Street, Embassies and Westminster Palace. Military personnel can also be seen at other events in the coming weeks as concerts and football games, working under the command of the police, May said. Deputy Commissioner Mark Rowley, the UK’s oldest anti-terrorist agent with Scotland Yard, said: “We still have critical uprising lines that we are looking for urgently but leave a certain degree of uncertainty, which led to the Joint Center for the Analysis of Terrorism to judge independently that the threat level must be elevated to critical, which means that another attack could be imminent. ”
“The public expects that the police are doing extraordinary things, everything that is possible to protect them.” The first thing we do is to stretch our police resources.We have mobilization plans, cancel the license, extend shifts.we can double the number of agents in the Streets, armed and unarmed, “Rowley said.
The first time the alert level rose to criticism in the UK was in 2006 during a major operation to stop a plot to blow up transatlantic jets with liquid bombs. Then in 2007, security chiefs have retreated as they hunt down the men who had tried to blow up a London nightclub before attacking Glasgow airport.
The Islamist terrorist network (ISIS) has claimed the attack on Monday night by Abedi, a local Manchester United – as the citizens of Manchester are known.
However, the UK government said the claims remain unchecked.

Asus ZenFone Live (ZB501KL) review: Live and let live

Asus ZenFone Live (ZB501KL) review: Live and let live

For a company like Asus, which has launched a Zenfone laser and Zenfone autofocus Zenfone Zoom, the Zenfone live is not a surprise. Asus has always had great talent for tricks and Zenfone live is also a very effective smartphone. It is, in fact, the world’s phone, and probably the only one, equipped with a real-time beautification feature for live streaming.

“Zenfone Live is the world’s first smartphone with optimized hardware real-time embellishment technology” that works in conjunction with the BeautyLive phone application to ensure a “perfect look when you go live,” according to Asus. In essence, the phone can allow live streaming a more beautiful version of itself on social media channels like Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. Well, why not?

Design and quality of construction
Zenfone is alive and well when it comes to design. It is very industrial and very generic, live Zenfone. But nothing luxurious about it. Nothing too bland and boring either. It’s somewhere in the middle. Asus said, the phone comes with a metallic finish. It feels very plastic in the hands though. Up front, the Zenfone comes with a 2.5D curved crystal, but Asus does not mention whether there is a kind of protective layer.

Some time passed Asus has overcome the bad mood of previous ZenFones. The live Zenfone, too, is very thin and very light, almost nonexistent in the hands. Weighs only 120 grams and measures only 8 mm. The elegant dimensions really help the cause. The live Zenfone was designed to record videos – live videos to be precise – and many of them, and they should be light on their hands. It is very light on the hands.
