Posted by in categories: internet, satellites

India launches it’s own rocket in place of Soyuz-article here.

India’s most powerful rocket, the GSLV Mk.3, launched 36 OneWeb internet satellites at 2:37 p.m. EDT (1837 GMT) Saturday. The mission resumed launches for OneWeb after the suspension of flights on Russian Soyuz rockets earlier this year.

New record data transmission speed

Posted by in categories: computing, internet

The speed demonstrated by the researchers is equivalent to twice the traffic of the entire global Internet.

The first data transmission to exceed 1 petabit per second (Pbit/s) using only a single laser and a single optical chip has been demonstrated by European researchers.

David Sinclair at ARDD2022: Great release of unpublished data from David Sinclair’s Lab

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, internet, life extension

The Aging and Drug Discovery Conference (ARDD) 2022 is pleased to present David Sinclair from Harvard Medical School, who shares new unpublished results from his lab at Harvard Medical School.

Held in Copenhagen at the glorious Ceremonial Hall, this meeting gathers the most prominent figures of the aging and longevity research field, from scientists to clinicians, investors, developers, and everything in between. The fast growth of the conference is evidence of its great quality. In 2022 we had around 400 people on-site, and many others joined through the web.

Researchers secretly converted Starlink signals into GPS systems despite Musk’s objection

Posted by in category: internet

Todd Humphreys and his team at UT Austin’s Radionavigation Lab believed that the Starlink constellation could offer precise position, navigation, and timing that could serve as a backup to the army’s GPS system.

Microsoft Confirms Server Misconfiguration Led to 65,000+ Companies’ Data Leak

Posted by in categories: business, cybercrime/malcode, internet

Microsoft this week confirmed that it inadvertently exposed information related to thousands of customers following a security lapse that left an endpoint publicly accessible over the internet sans any authentication.

“This misconfiguration resulted in the potential for unauthenticated access to some business transaction data corresponding to interactions between Microsoft and prospective customers, such as the planning or potential implementation and provisioning of Microsoft services,” Microsoft said in an alert.

The misconfiguration of the Azure Blob Storage was spotted on September 24, 2022, by cybersecurity company SOCRadar, which termed the leak BlueBleed. Microsoft said it’s in the process of directly notifying impacted customers.

Chip can transmit all of the internet’s traffic every second

Posted by in categories: computing, internet

A single computer chip has transmitted a record 1.84 petabits of data per second via a fibre-optic cable – enough bandwidth to download 230 million photographs in that time, and more traffic than travels through the entire internet’s backbone network per second.

Asbjørn Arvad Jørgensen at the Technical University of Denmark in Copenhagen and his colleagues have used a photonic chip – a technology that allows optical components to be built onto computer chips – to divide a stream of data into thousands of separate channels and transmit them all at once over 7.9 kilometres.

First, the team split the data stream into 37 sections, each of which was sent down a separate core of the fibre-optic cable. Next, each of these channels was split into 223 data chunks that existed in individual slices of the electromagnetic spectrum. This “frequency comb” of equidistant spikes of light across the spectrum allowed data to be transmitted in different colours at the same time without interfering with each other, massively increasing the capacity of each core.

SpaceX’s new Starlink Aviation service brings 350 Mbps WiFi to private jets

Posted by in categories: internet, space

The new service will provide 350 Mbps internet, even while taking off and landing.

SpaceX just announced its new Starlink Aviation service, which will allow high-speed in-flight internet that will allow users to make voice calls and stream videogames, according to the company.

The new service promises speeds of up to 350 Mbps for airliners and is aimed mainly at private jet contractors. Earlier this year, SpaceX also announced a partnership with Hawaiian Airlines to bring free WiFi to its flights starting early next year.

Internet connectivity worldwide impacted

Posted by in categories: internet, security

A major internet subsea fiber cable in the South of France was severed yesterday at 20:30 UTC, causing connectivity problems in Europe, Asia, and the United States, including data packet losses and increased website response latency.

Cloud security company Zscaler reports that they made routing adjustments to mitigate the impact. However, users still face problems due to app and content providers routing traffic through the impacted paths.

“Zscaler is working with the content providers to have them influence their portion of the path,” reads a notice from Zscaler.
