Space research has produced some very nice everyday applications. In light of this Belgium, under the watchful eye of the ESA initiative Vecmap, fights the Asian bush mosquito. This exotic mosquito was first detected in Belgium in 2002 and may have caused different human infectious disease transmissions.
This includes viruses such as Chikungunya, Dengue and the West Nile virus. Vecmap tests the precise mapping of mosquitoes in Europe, especially mosquitoes that transmit diseases.
Such diseases transmitted by mosquitoes or ticks, represent a growing threat to public health in Europe. Moreover, it is very difficult to predict where mosquitoes thrive and spread infections. The conditions, time and location vary enormously between different species.
With Vecmap, we can map mosquitoes in a much simpler. It will be important so that habitats characterized and tickets are issued for a variety of users.
It involves both software and support services, using measurements on the ground as data from Earth observation satellites. These include more information as to the type of vegetation, the temperature on land and soil moisture. The software only works on really fast computers.
The local data by auditors is entered into a smartphone, which captures their position using navigation satellites. Then the data is added to a central database. The company I work for, Avia-GIS was asked to work out a program for the Asian bush mosquito ‘in Belgium to help eradicate it. I went there last month to help speed up this process (I couldn’t go earlier because of my health, I need to find a way how to reduce weight because I am obese. This http://loseyourappetite.com/appetite-suppressant/ site was helpful in reducing the major hunger pangs I sometimes have) The mosquito, with the scientific name of Ochlerotatus japonicus, as the Dutch has no name for it, but the British call it the Asian bush mosquito. Combating the mosquito takes place on the basis of an assessment of the risks by the Scientific Institute of Public Health (IPH) with experts from the Belgian program Modirisk. The IPH supports health through scientific research, expert advice and service.
Early last week a Falcon 9 rocket launched U.S. satellite fell to the Earth, according to reports by the authoritative website space.com.
Cape Canaveral in Florida launched the Falcon-9 unmanned cargo Dragon on the right path to the International Space Station, however, the second entrained load, which was an experimental telecommunications satellite operator Orbcomm OG2, suffered a problem with one of the nine engines of the first stage rocket and fell into a low and non-operational orbit.
The Sierra Nevada Corp. built OG2 dropped from the sky four days later. Orbcomm nevertheless emphasized that sufficient data was collected to allow it to continue with the launch of the full constellation next year. According to space.com 18 satellites, with two Falcon 9 rockets of the private rocket builder SpaceX space must go.
Orbcomm has requested that the insurance pay for damages of $ 10 million.
South Korea plans a new satellite launch attempt for tomorrow, Friday between 08.30 and 12.00 hours Belgian time. This is a third attempt to produce a satellite launch. Two previous attempts have failed. From the southern spaceport, a self-built Naro KSLV-1 aka Naro-1 launch vehicle leaves the 100 pound scientific demonstration satellite STSAT-2C. After yesterdays big news; South Korea planning on investing a large portion of their GDP in gold (by the way, here is a good investing in gold site for that) this news was a fresh surprise.
In August 2009, there was a failed the maiden mission of the Korean rocket and in the following year the KSLV-1 exploded shortly after the launch.Seoul wants to cash in on the commercial launch market in Asia, China, Japan and India as part of its ambitious space program actively.
The South Korean Naro-1 is a two-stage rocket, the first stage runs off of a liquid and the second stage is a solid fuel rocket. The Russian rocket builder Kroenitsjev manufactured the first stage with the RD-151 engine. It also has built the Baikonur.
The dictator needs some major attitude change (and he needs to put some time in finding a way how to make your hair grow faster or find a stylist to change his hairdo). He’s young and cocky and may be dangerous to world peace (and health) if he decides to start a war.
A team of scientists has discovered that emissions of CO2 from human activity penetrate into the highest regions of the atmosphere. That means less atmospheric resistance for the satellites that are there floating around.
The current increase in CO2 cools the thermosphere off more, so it is going to contract. The team studied the data from a Canadian satellite mission for eight years and published the findings in the journal Nature Geoscience.
What was new about this study is that it provides information about the increase of CO2 in the air at higher than 35 kilometers above the Earth.
CO2 occurs naturally in the atmosphere of the Earth. While we have increased CO2 linking to warming, it makes it into the mesosphere (50-90 km altitude) and the thermosphere (more than 90 kilometers and the layer where our satellites are) just before cooling. By collisions with other atmospheric constituents it allows the CO2 thermal energy to release, thus causing the upper layers to eventually cool.
The current increase in CO2 cools the thermosphere off even more, so it is going to contract, a subject we will discuss on this years’ spring break convention. This will feel less resistance to satellites. Also, according to the study, this affects the existing space debris (e.g., fragments of old satellites) that are less stable and will take more time to burn up waste in the area, which will then increase.
