NASA/SpaceX SpaceX has taken another small step toward sending astronauts into space after launching the Crew Dragon capsule early Saturday morning and successfully docking with the International Space Station. spacex-demo1 SpaceX Affixed to the top of a Falcon 9 booster, the rounded cone capsule of the Crew Dragon blasted off in a blaze of fire and smoke from Kennedy Space Center in Florida at 2:49 a.m. ET Saturday. The launch was the first step in the Demo-1 mission, designed to test the capabilities of the capsule over the next week, but it was only the beginning. After launch the capsule coasted to the ISS, making a number of maneuvers to line up with a specialized docking adapter aboard the station. Though live footage of the event appeared low-key, both the Crew Dragon and the ISS were traveling at over 17,500 miles per hour during the monumental docking attempt.  Crew Dragon achieved soft capture with the ISS at 5:51 a.m. ET, but the high-speed space grab wasn’t over. Shortly after, 12 hooks reached out from Crew Dragon to firmly attach it to the ISS, enabling a “hard capture” of the capsule at 6 a.m. ET and marking the first successful docking of a Commercial Crew capsule at the ISS.

SpaceX/NASA On Saturday morning, the historic launch was celebrated with cheers and applause at Kennedy Space Center, after multiple delays pushed the maiden flight back from an expected launch in 2018. The site of the landmark launch was Pad 39A, which has previously seen NASA’s Saturn rockets carry astronauts to the moon aboard Apollo spacecraft and the famous launches of NASA’s space shuttles. SpaceX CEO Elon Musk expressed his appreciation for both the SpaceX team and NASA at a post-launch press conference but noted the mental toll the experience had on him. “To be frank, I’m a little emotionally exhausted,” he sighed. “That was super stressful, but it worked… So far.”    Though the launch was a success, SpaceX still has a few more obstacles to overcome before the demonstration mission is complete. The capsule will remain docked at the ISS until March 8, then begin what is arguably the most important part of its demonstration: successfully returning to Earth. The capsule is fitted with enhanced parachutes and is set to splash down in the Atlantic Ocean. The Falcon 9 blasts off, carrying Crew Dragon for the first time. SpaceX Speaking of the Atlantic, the reusable Falcon 9 booster that launched Crew Dragon landed on the droneship Of Course I Still Love You drifting in the ocean, approximately 10 minutes after liftoff. As part of its Commercial Crew program, NASA handed contracts to both SpaceX and Boeing in 2014 to develop rockets that could send astronauts back to space. NASA hasn’t launched humans to space since 2011, when the Space Shuttle program ended. In the meantime, the agency has paid for spots on the Russian-built Soyuz spacecraft at a cost of over $80 million per seat. That makes Saturday’s success particularly important, helping chart a course for NASA to bring launches back to American soil and keep costs down.  “We want to make sure we keep our partnership with Russia, which has been very strong for a long period of time,” NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said before the flight. “But we also want to make sure we have our own capability to get back and forth to the International Space Station.” The Crew Dragon separates from the Falcon 9 in Earth’s shadow. SpaceX The Crew Dragon capsule is an enhanced version of SpaceX’s Dragon capsule, which has ferried cargo from Earth to the ISS on 16 previous occasions. This iteration can carry seven human passengers, which it’ll eventually shuttle to the ISS in low Earth orbit. Provided this demo mission proceeds as planned, the Crew Dragon will have to demonstrate its safety in one more “in-flight abort test,” scheduled for later this year. If it passes that test, SpaceX and NASA will finally be ready to make another giant leap, sending astronauts to the ISS from the US for the first time since 2011. last_img read more

first_img Apple Aug 31 • Your phone screen is gross. Here’s how to clean it Microsoft is jumping on the digital health bandwagon. Gety Images For the past couple years, tech companies like Apple, Google and even Facebook have been doing something seemingly against their interests: Encouraging us to stop using them. On Monday, Microsoft joined those companies by encouraging business people to be more mindful of their time too. The new features, built into the company’s Office 365 business productivity service for Windows PCs, Macs and mobile devices, tracks how people use their computers and then displays that information on a dashboard.For example, Microsoft’s software will soon start showing people how often they focused on a task and for how long. And it will also cheer them on if they successfully disconnected after work. You can even set goals for how often you have quiet days, Microsoft said. Read on ZDNet: Microsoft Build 2019: Azure is the star, and Windows is a bit player The new features, announced at the company’s Build developer conference in Seattle, are the latest in a growing trend of tech companies aiming to make us feel better about using their devices and services. They’re doing this by encouraging us to be more mindful about how much of our lives get taken up by technology in the first place. At Apple, this comes as part of a feature called Screen Time, which shows you how often you use your phone and what types of apps you’re using most. You can also set limits on how long you can use specific apps, like Facebook. Google’s Android software for phones and tablets has a tool called Digital Wellbeing that offers similar features. Even Facebook and Instagram, which are often derided as places people zone out and lose hours tapping and scrolling, have a screen time feature. For Microsoft, these features are part of a broader refinement to Microsoft’s Office 365 business software. The suite, which includes access to the company’s popular Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Outlook apps, is used by 180 million people. Microsoft said the new features will be available “in the next few months.”  Aug 31 • iPhone XR vs. iPhone 8 Plus: Which iPhone should you buy?

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles General Motors has dominated its American counterparts when it comes to offering in-car commerce. Its MyLink infotainment system has been adding various integrations over the last couple years, whether it’s placing reservations through Yelp or ordering a Domino’s pizza on the fly. Fiat Chrysler’s latest announcement along similar lines should help it keep up with the Joneses.Fiat Chrysler Automobiles announced on Monday that the next iteration of its Uconnect infotainment system will include something called Uconnect Market. This commerce platform is similar to GM’s Marketplace, in that it will allow a variety of third-party companies to offer connected buying services directly through the infotainment system. It was developed in partnership with Xevo, which has lent its expertise to GM, as well.When setting up a Uconnect Market account, owners will have the opportunity to add a credit card for use within the marketplace. That can then be used to authorize card-free fuel fill-ups at participating Shell stations, in addition to paying for parking through integration of the ParkWhiz service. People will also be able to book service appointments and check out offers on various services, and they can also book restaurant reservations through Yelp.This builds on news from earlier in the year. In April, FCA announced that it would rely on tech from Harman and Google for its upcoming connected-car services, which will allow for over-the-air updates and, when its EVs start rolling out, additional services catered to electric cars. It can also work with usage-based insurance and even peer-to-peer car sharing, so the sky’s the limit.Uconnect Market is expected to make its way to owners via over-the-air update in the second half of 2019. It will work with 2019 and 2020 model-year vehicles from Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram, so long as those vehicles pack both the connectivity itself and Uconnect’s 8.4-inch touchscreen.  Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid: First hybrid minivan wins on fuel economy 2019 Maserati Levante GTS: Heart of goldlast_img read more

Houstons Contributions to Combat Climate Change

first_img Share Listen The United Nations has just released a report on global warming and a local expert told Houston Matters Wednesday the Bayou City has become of the American metropolises leading the way with initiatives to better protect the environment.Gavin Dillingham is program director of Clean Energy Policy at Houston Advanced Research Center (HARC) and said what the report presents isn’t surprising but “hopefully it’s a wake-up call to a lot of people that may not have been paying as much attention to it or that still need maybe more information or data.”Dillingham noted that, a few years ago, the City of Houston “first looked at its internal operations and really tried to focus on reducing greenhouse gas emissions there through just improving operations in buildings and fleet to waste management, etcetera.”“Now the City is looking to do that on a community wide basis through its Climate Action Plan,” the expert added.Dillingham also highlighted that one of the main goals of Houston’s Climate Action Plan is to meet the city’s greenhouse gas reduction goals as initially established in the Paris climate agreement, from which the Trump administration withdrew last year.For Dillingham, there are several American cities that are working towards meeting those goals and “the City of Houston has really taken a good leadership role” by trying to combine cost-effective measures that will better protect the environment but that will also promote the city’s economic vitality.The expert also underscored the fact the City of Houston has recently joined the 100 Resilient Cities Network, a $164 million global effort to build urban resilience around the world.At a regional level, the HARC expert explained his organization is working on helping a group of nine counties near the Texas Gulf Coast to prioritize efforts to combat climate change.
