VOZ DE AMÉRICA astrónomos "bautizan" lunas de Plutón

Voz de América - Redacción

El planeta más lejano y pequeño del Sistema Solar tiene en total
cinco lunas que lo acompañan en una órbita elíptica que está unas
40 veces más distante del Sol que la Tierra.

Las dos lunas de Plutón más recientemente descubiertas, una en el
2011 y otra en el 2012, acaban de ser bautizadas por la Unión
Astronómica Internacional (UAI) con los nombreas de Kerberos y

Se trata de la cuarta y la quinta lunas del más pequeño y lejano
planeta del sistema solar, que fueron descubiertas por el potente
telescopio espacial Hubble y denominadas entonces
provisionalmente P4 y P5.

De acuerdo con la UAI, Kerberos que orbita Plutón entre otras dos
lunas más grandes –Nix e Hydra–, tiene de diámetro entre 13 y 34
kilómetros, mientras que el Styx tiene entre 10 y 25 kilómetros.

Los nombres fueron escogidos por votación del público, y para
evitar confusiones con el asteroide 1865 Cerberus, la cuarta luna
recibió ese nombre pero en griego: Kerberos (Cerbero), monstruo
de tres cabezas que guardaba la puerta del Hades (inframundo de
la mitología griega).

La denominación de Styx (Estigia) también responde a la mitología
griega y es el nombre de otra diosa del Hades.

Satellite Broadband Aims to Revolutionize African Development

Henry Ridgwell
July 04, 2013

LONDON — A new satellite system was launched into orbit last week
that aims to bring high-speed Internet to remote communities
across the globe. Its backers say it could have a big impact in
rural parts of Africa by speeding up economic and social
development. Others argue the huge amounts of money, however,
should be spent on more basic needs.

Lift-off for the O3b - or "Other 3 Billion" - satellite system
occurred last week in French Guiana. The system goes "live" later
this year when eight satellites will enter a lower orbit to
provide a faster connection.

Its backers include Google and the Development Bank of Southern
Africa, among others.

Founder Greg Wyler said the "Other 3 Billion" are the people on
the planet without access to fast Internet.

"This will enable everybody, and it will be a cascading effect,
but it enables everybody in these societies to become
economically relevant to the rest of the world," he said.

Fast connection, pervasive coverage

The O3b satellites will provide Internet coverage anywhere within
45 degrees of latitude north and south of the equator.

Rival Inmarsat will launch a satellite Internet system called
Global Xpress later this year.

Dele Meiji Fatunla, web editor for Britain’s Royal African
Society, said, "In the rural areas I think it would have an
impact on the way people can get information related to
healthcare, information related to education."

In the Atlantic off west Africa, cable-laying ships completed the
submarine West Africa Cable System last year. Sub-Saharan Africa
alone has nine submarine cables, with a total capacity of 22

Fatunla said broadband boosts economic growth.

"I think a lot of small and medium enterprises would benefit from
that," he said. "And it might also have a political impact in the
sense that the Internet, if it’s fairly open, will allow
organizations and people to mobilize much more effectively."

Other pressing needs

But broadband by itself won’t revolutionize governance, said
Charles Kenny of the Center for Global Development in Washington.

"If government isn’t picking up the phone, if you will, if
government isn’t answering the emails, just having a broadband
connection isn’t going to help," he said.

And when it comes to healthcare, said Kenny, government money
would be better spent on basic needs.

"Vaccines, bed nets, it’s the very basic health interventions
that are having a huge impact. Africa doesn’t have many doctors;
it doesn’t matter if they’re all connected to broadband. So I
think particularly where it comes to health, broadband may not be
the 'wiz-bang' solution," he said.

But Fatunla said broadband’s potential should not be

"You have to remember that there’s going to be a core of people
who are active in societies in Africa, particularly civil
society, who will benefit from there being better access to
information," he said. "And I think those people will, in turn,
be able to pressure government structures a lot more."

Analysts warn that even though the satellites and cables are
connecting to Africa, the prices charged by Internet service
providers on the ground need to be lower before broadband’s full
potential is realized.
