History-making Solar Airplane Grounded Until 2016

VOA News
July 15, 2015

The Switzerland-based team attempting to fly a solar-powered
plane around the world says the flight has been suspended until
next April because of irreparable damage to its batteries.

The team says the batteries on the Solar Impulse 2 overheated
during its five-day flight from Nagoya, Japan to Honolulu, Hawaii
on June 30. The team says it did not anticipate the effect rapid
altitude changes in a tropical climate would have on battery

Pilot Andre Borschberg landed the Solar Impulse 2 near Honolulu
on July 3, after traveling a record-breaking 118 hours across the
Pacific Ocean. It was the riskiest leg of its 35,000-kilometer
trip around the world because there was no place to land in an

The plane will be housed in a hangar owned by the University of
Hawaii while undergoing repairs and tests on other cooling and
heating methods for very long flights.

When the flight resumes, Solar Impulse 2 will fly across the
continental U.S. to New York, before crossing the Atlantic Ocean
to Europe or North Africa before arriving back in Abu Dhabi,
where the flight originated back in March.

The carbon fiber single-seat Solar Impulse 2 has a 72-meter
wingspan, which is longer than the wingspan of a Boeing 747, and
weighs about as much as an automobile. The 17,000 solar cells
built into the wings harness the sun's energy and charge onboard

The project is the brainchild of Borschberg and fellow Swiss
aviator Bertrand Piccard, who are alternating each leg of the
historic flight. The duo say they are aiming to demonstrate that
alternative energy sources and new technologies can achieve what
some consider impossible.

Cubans Yearn for Internet Access

George Putic, KI4FNF
July 10, 2015

Cuba is one of a handful of countries whose people still have
very limited access to the Internet. While waiting for the
government to live up to its promise of expanding connectivity,
some enthusiasts have built their own local networks to
communicate, share files and play games.

At community centers, authorized by the Ministry of Culture,
young people use their mobile devices to take advantage of the
free Wi-Fi connectivity.

Kevin, a visitor at one of the community centers, said even
though the network doesn't have the highest speed and all, it's

"You can get on the Internet, most of the time," he said.

Only a limited number of Cuban citizens have private Internet
connections, which are not cheap. Foreigners can use the Internet
at hotels, also at steep prices. The government's promises of
greater connectivity remain unfulfilled.

Local networks

But private citizens do own computers and some of them are
forming local networks to experiment, connect and socialize.

Marlon, a computer enthusiast, said in the absence of Internet
connectivity, people have created forums "servers with games
where people share with each other," exchange ideas, and debate
topics like sports, culture and music.

Cables usually run over the rooftops, in some cases connecting up
to 10 people in the same neighborhood.

"The 10th cable is the one which makes the connection to all the
others," said Marlon. "The 10th cable is connected to another
switch, which is connected to another switch, and on and on. That
is how the connection with other people is made."

Computer game enthusiasts

Exchanging music and movies, and playing games do not attract the
suspicion of the authorities, but discussions are another matter.

"Everybody knows that we are being watched and they can be very
picky and jumpy because nobody wants to lose their investment,"
said Adrian, a computer enthusiast. "Nobody wants to lose their
entertainment, the only alternative they have, and ... well, it's
a complicated matter."

Knowing that computer game enthusiasts in other countries play
tournaments with distant fellow gamers, young Cubans hope that
someday they, too, will be able to play over the Internet.

Marlon said they don't necessarily have to do that with the
United States, but any other country. "But to do that," he added,
"this local connection that we have must be turned into the

Unfortunately, the Cuban government's fear of the free flow of
information may hamper their wishes for some time.

NASA Reveals Closest Look Ever at Pluto

Smita Nordwall
July 16, 2015

The U.S. Space Agency, NASA, released long-awaited photos from
its New Horizons mission that show icy mountains on the surface
of Pluto.

Scientists also revealed images that show remarkable new details
of Pluto's moons Hydra and Charon.

U.S. scientists released photos Wednesday after an unmanned NASA
spacecraft whizzed by the distant dwarf planet following its
nearly 10-year journey of 4.8 billion kilometers (nearly 3
billion miles).

The nuclear-powered New Horizons moving faster than any
spacecraft ever built previously, at a speed of about 49,570
kilometers per hour (30,800 miles per hour) snapped pictures of
Pluto as it hurtled by.

The photos reveal details of the planet never seen before.

A zoom-in of Pluto reveals an icy range about as high as the

To the scientists' great surprise, there are no impact craters.
On Charon, deep troughs and canyons can be seen.

America's Amazing Weather Photography

Dora Mekouar
July 15th, 2015

From tornadoes to hurricanes, the government agency known as the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is the
primary source of weather data, forecasts and warnings for the
United States and its territories.

NOAA recently held a "Weather in Focus" photography contest
recognizing photographers who captured compelling images of
weather or the science used to forecast weather, water and

"From rainbows and sunsets to lightning and tornadoes, the
winning photos aren't just captivating to look at, but inspire us
to look at the world in different ways," said contest judge
Douglas Hilderbrand in a press release. "It was difficult to pick
winners from so many good entries."

More than 2,000 photos, taken between January 1, 2014 and March
31, 2015, were entered into the contest. There were separate
categories for amateur photographers, professional photographers
and people who captured images on their mobile devices.
