For a few days, the media speculates on the release date of the latest Nexus 9 tablet, which, according to unofficial reports, is set to make its debut this week. More evidence has emerged that the launch of the new device, to be manufactured by HTC, will take place tomorrow.

While the Nexus family can not match the popularity of Samsung, LG, or Motorola, they are a very interesting alternative. Especially because they have a good class of components, and the operating system is basic, so there are no unnecessary overlays.

Google policy assumes that every next device is built by another company, so the newest Nexus 9 tablet will deliver us to HTC. Her choice of tablet vendor is quite surprising, because the Taiwanese company has rather little experience with them, and although a few years ago introduced the Flyer model, it did not enjoy much interest. So HTC has decided that it is better to focus on smartphones.

But now she has changed her mind and is building Nexus 9. If you believe in the reports of Bright Side of News, it will officially debut tomorrow in a special presentation, where Google will also display Android L. Right after its completion, the sale of a new tablet will begin, and on November 3, the first devices will reach the buyers. The product costs 250 pounds, which, given the likely specification of the device, seems to be a very attractive price.

In 2030, NASA plans to send its first manned mission to Mars. To ensure the safety of the astronauts who are there, the agency must develop an effective weather forecasting system so that the mission does not land in the midst of a powerful hurricane.

The weather on Mars is not very friendly to humans, and hurricanes appear to be very strong, and the winds reach speeds of several hundred kilometers per hour, which could pose a serious threat to astronauts who will land there.

NASA can not allow this, so it has already begun activities to create an efficient Martian weather prediction system, studying the movement of huge sandstorms using data on the temperature of the orbits.

This helped to create a pattern that predicted the paths that storms would travel through. This will make it much easier to determine the location of the astronaut landing and the location of the future base.

Soon it will be even harder to get a visa to the United States, especially for young people. The Department of Homeland Security is developing a plan for a more accurate examination of all persons wishing to come to the United States. Its part is also to look at what that person writes in social media.

If you love posing on Facebook with guns in your hand or putting a lot of photos of events where you are in a state of intoxication, you will have a serious problem getting a visa to enter the US The American government wants to more accurately check who is applying A visa, and part of it is to check how the applicant is behaving in social media.

The Department of Homeland Security’s pilot program has begun to examine selected applications from this angle a few months ago, but the agency wants to focus even more on this aspect after its recent fall. It turned out that a woman who was one of the shooters from San Bernardino, posted on the social networking sites jihadist support, but was not captured by the agency. It has managed to pass three verified in the past associated with the application of a visa, which was made when she moved from Pakistan to the USA.

Vertu is a brand that the average Smith does not say, but the richest businessmen and corporate executives know the smartphones they use. The newest product of this company is called Signature Touch.

Vertu smartphones may not match the performance of Samsung or Apple, but they certainly outperform their performance and detail. Each replica is hand-made and made from the most expensive materials, and also finished with exotic leather.

Earlier models of this company were not speed demons, but Vertu decided to go with the spirit of time and significantly upgrade their smartphones. Its latest Signature Touch model features a 5.2-inch Full HD screen, protected by a sapphire coating, which is completely scratch resistant.

The smartphone housing is made of titanium, extremely durable and very lightweight, and the rear panel is trimmed with high quality leather (you can choose a crocodile skin). Interestingly, the double flap is incorporated into the rear panel, which surrounds the camera on both sides. There are slots microSD card and nanoSIM. Of course, the flap itself also acts as an ornament and the manufacturer can engrave it at the request of the purchaser.

The interior of the Signature Touch enclosure covers the eight-core Snapdragon 810 processor with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of flash memory, which can be expanded with a maximum 2TB microSD card.

It also includes a 21 megapixel rear-facing camera with dual LED flash, autofocus, and 4K movie recording capabilities. The front camera has only 2.1 megapixels, but it is enough.

The smartphone connects to the Internet via LTE, allowing downloading files up to 300 Mbit. Its battery has a capacity of 3160 mAh, and thanks to Quick Charge 2.0 technology, recharging takes a relatively short time. Of course there is also Qi technology for wireless charging, as well as NFC, Bluetooth aptX, buttons made of ruby ​​and stereo speakers.

The Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System is the latest generation of launching systems for launching aircraft carriers, replacing existing steam catapults. The unit has recently been successfully tested on the USS Gerald R. Ford and will be officially in service in 2018.

The deck of aircraft carriers is too short for the fighter plane to achieve the speed required to break off the ground. Therefore, navies have been using a steam launch system for many years, which gives them the speed they need to fly quickly. This system works quite well, but the US Navy plans to replace it with a completely new catapult named EMALS (Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System) in 2018, which uses electromagnets instead of compressed steam.

EMALS is a much more advanced technology providing more benefits. Enables a smoother start thanks to the ability to precisely adjust the speed and thereby reduce the stresses on the airplane frames. It is also much easier to adapt it to different types of aircraft and start conditions compared to current catapults.

The Navy has already conducted several tests on board the USS Gerald R. Ford, testing the F-35, and in the summer plans for further testing, during which the catapult will be tested on F / A-18 Super Hornets, EA-18G Growlers and E2D Advanced Hawkeyes.
