Starlink: SpaceX is now offering for ships as well

Posted by in categories: internet, satellites

What is most interesting about their announcement is that it says that in about 6 months they will be offering service to the entire planet when they will be flying enough laser satellites to pull this off.

Record-setting quantum entanglement connects two atoms across 20 miles

Posted by in categories: internet, particle physics, quantum physics

Researchers in Germany have demonstrated quantum entanglement of two atoms separated by 33 km (20.5 miles) of fiber optics. This is a record distance for this kind of communication and marks a breakthrough towards a fast and secure quantum internet.

Quantum entanglement is the uncanny phenomenon where two particles can become so inextricably linked that examining one can tell you about the state of the other. Stranger still, changing something about one particle will instantly alter its partner, no matter how far apart they are. That leads to the unsettling implication that information is being “teleported” faster than the speed of light, an idea that was too much for even Einstein, who famously described it as “spooky action at a distance.”

Despite its apparent impossibility, quantum entanglement has been consistently demonstrated in experiments for decades, with scientists taking advantage of its bizarre nature to quickly transmit data over long distances. And in the new study, researchers from Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich (LMU) and Saarland University have now broken a distance record for quantum entanglement between two atoms over fiber optics.

CRISPR-Cas9 Genome Editing Technology

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biotech/medical, chemistry, internet

We’ve learned about a few techniques in biotechnology already, but the CRISPR-Cas9 system is one of the most exciting ones. Inspired by bacterial immune response to viruses, this site-specific gene editing technique won the Nobel prize in chemistry in 2020, going to Jennifer Doudna and Emmanuelle Charpentier. How did they develop this method? What can it be used for? Let’s get the full story!

How fast is Elon Musk’s Starlink — the results are in

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, internet

Starlink is faster than ever but is it enough for rural internet users?

While Starlink’s download speeds have increased, Ookla’s Speedtest Intelligence shows that upload speeds decreased by almost 33 percent from 16.29 Mbps during the first quarter of last year to 9.33 Mbps in Q1 2022. At the same time, Starlink’s median latency increased from 40 ms to 43 ms in the U.S. and from 51 ms to 55ms in Canada though these changes are likely negligible for most users.

The U.S. and Canada aren’t the only places Starlink adoption has increased while the service’s speeds have improved as Ookla highlights in its report.

Toll fraud malware disables your WiFi to force premium subscriptions

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, internet, robotics/AI

Microsoft is warning that toll fraud malware is one of the most prevalent threats on Android and that it is evolving with features that allow automatic subscription to premium services.

Toll fraud is a subset of billing fraud, where the threat actor tricks victims into calling or sending an SMS to a premium number.

The difference is that toll fraud does not work over WiFi and forces the devices to connect to the mobile operator’s network.

FCC authorizes SpaceX to provide mobile Starlink internet service to boats, planes and trucks

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, internet, satellites

The Federal Communications Commission authorized SpaceX to provide Starlink satellite internet to vehicles in motion, a key step for Elon Musk’s company to further expand the service.

“Authorizing a new class of [customer] terminals for SpaceX’s satellite system will expand the range of broadband capabilities to meet the growing user demands that now require connectivity while on the move, whether driving an RV across the country, moving a freighter from Europe to a U.S. port, or while on a domestic or international flight,” FCC international bureau chief Tom Sullivan wrote in the authorization posted Thursday.

SpaceX did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment on the FCC decision.

Starlink Wins FCC Approval to Supply Internet to Moving Vehicles

Posted by in categories: internet, satellites

The Federal Communications Commission has signed off on SpaceX’s plan for its Starlink satellites to supply internet access to moving vehicles.

The FCC’s order comes after the company has already signed deals with airline carriers including Hawaiian Airlines and JSX to provide in-flight Wi-Fi to their passengers. Cruise line Royal Caribbean has also requested the service for its ships.

The approval covers a variety of transport including cars, plans and boats.
