India Fails To Conquer The Moon With Chandrayaan-2 Mission During Moon Landing Attempt

In 2008, India entered the select club of countries capable of placing a satellite in orbit around the Moon: the Chandrayaan-1. But that was not enough for the thriving Asian power: its objective was to land on the lunar surface itself, like decades before the Apollo missions had done.

To do this, the Hindu space agency ISRO initially joined the Russians to start a joint mission that allowed an uncrewed moon landing. But the Russians withdrew from the project after the failure of their Phobos-Grunt mission in 2011, and the Hindus decided to move forward alone.

After several postponements of the mission, which initially should have been carried out in 2018 (on the tenth anniversary of the launch of the Chandrayaan-1), the Chandrayaan-2 mission was launched last July. This probe carried a lunar module called Vikram (in honor of the founder of the Hindu space program Vikram Sarabhai, now deceased).

 

What Happened Yesterday?

The descent of the Vikram ship (of 1500 kg, plus the 27 kg of the Pragyan rover) began a few minutes after 10 pm. , from an altitude of 30 km above the surface of our satellite (in the Apollo missions this distance was only 15 km).

The landing zone planned for Vikram was located between the Simpelius N and Manzinus C craters, near the lunar South Pole. But shortly after starting the second phase of the descent, reaching 2.1 km in height (around 10:20 pm), the expected path of the Vikram was altered :

At that time the ship’s signal was also lost. By itself, this incident would not have been worrisome, because the moon landing procedure is programmed, not requiring connection to the Earth. But he did not recover at any time and, at this time, the Vikram is considered lost, considering it crashed against the lunar surface. The reasons for this outcome will still take several days to meet.

This failure represents a blow to the public coffers of India ( although it has invested in this mission a smaller amount than the budget of ‘Interstellar’ ) and for its reputation as a space power, but also for science, for the scientific evidence that Vikram and Pragyan would have performed in the polar zone of the Moon.

There is also the circumstance that this year two other moon landing attempts have been carried out by Asian nations : China (which last January managed to land successfully on the hidden side of our satellite with its mission Change 4 ) and Israel (in this case the Beresheet, like now the Vikram, crashed during the landing ).

Adobe Illustrator App for iPad Launching This October

Adobe Illustrator App for iPad Launching This October

Adobe is now trying to bring its applications to other platforms. Recently, his party has officially launched Adobe Photoshop on the iPad with features that can be said to be almost like Photoshop on a PC or Mac.

Not long after the Photoshop application was present on the iPad, Adobe is now announcing that it will soon launch the Adobe Illustrator application on the iPad. Of course, the announcement made graphic designers very happy.

Because Adobe Illustrator is now a widely used application besides Photoshop. This application is usually used by designers to create works such as poster designs to logos. It is also known that Adobe will release this application on the iPad in October 2020.

“Design with precision, and make it more natural like designing on paper with a pen. Create lines, shapes, text, gradations, and effects. Cut or Merge using Pencil Gestures. Make designs stand out more with effects,” wrote Adobe describing the application. .

Later the Adobe Illustrator application on the iPad will also be optimized with Apple Pencil. This also makes it easier for iPad users when designing. The reason is that using fingers certainly makes the design process more difficult.

We’ll see if in the future Adobe will also bring other applications such as Adobe Premiere Pro or After Effects to the iPad, what do you think, guys?

Google Photos Has Stopped Making Backups Of Many Of Your Photos

Google Photos Has Stopped Making Backups Of Many Of Your Photos

Google Photos is one of the best tools to keep backup copies of all the photos that we take and receive on the mobile. When the application detected a new folder with images and videos, it asked us if we wanted to make a backup, which is great for securing any multimedia content.

The quality of these backups is conditioned by our device (remember that if you have a Pixel 3, for example, you will have unlimited storage until 2022 ) or the configuration that we have decided to apply. However, if we want it to stop making copies, we will have to disable this function by hand. However, although the photos and videos that we take with the mobile camera continue to upload to the cloud as usual, after the new update of Google Photos, things have changed “a little.”

If until now all these backups were made by default, backups to third-party apps have been disabled. Thus, an image or video received by WhatsApp, Instagram photos, image editors, etc. is out of the scope of Google Photos from now on. A new rule that makes even applications developed by Google itself, such as the “Messages” app, sees restrictions on making their corresponding security backups.

Why have backups on Google Photos been limited?


According to Google, the objective they intend to achieve with this limitation is to alleviate data traffic on the Internet, which is congested due to the COVID-19 crisis. This is not something new.

It is that we have already seen similar movements on platforms such as Netflix or YouTube, which reduced the quality of streaming in Europe in the harshest moments of the pandemic – and in some countries such as Spain are still stuck.

Therefore, although we have told Google Photos to make backup copies of specific applications, at the moment, those copies are no longer being made. Luckily, we can still modify the Photo settings to continue to take place, although we must enable it by hand. Next, we explain how to do it.

How to configure Google Photos to make backups of all our apps

Last week Google updated the Photos application adding a new icon and features. If we already have the application updated, these are the steps we must follow:

  • Open the Google Photos app.
  • In the lower menu, click on “Library “.
  • At the top of the screen, click on the “Utilities” icon.
  • At the bottom of the utility menu, select “Copy device folders .”
  • Here you will see the different folders on your device that contain images. If any of these folders have a cloud icon crossed out, that means Photos is not backing up that folder.
  • To make backups again, click on the folder and activate the “Create backup and synchronize” tab that you will see right at the top of the screen. Repeat this same process with all the folders you want to upload to the cloud.

Automatically Google Photos will re-synchronize all the videos and photos, keeping a backup as usual until now.

If we still have the old version of Google Photos, the steps to follow are very similar:

  • Open the Google Photos app and display the left side menu.
  • Go into “Settings” and select “Backup and Sync.”
  • In the menu, click on “Backup device folders.”
  • Use the tabs on the right to activate backup copies of any folder you want to save in Google Photos.
In this way, we ensure that all-important photos have their corresponding backup in the cloud. Solved!

A “Critical” Failure Of Apple Allowed To Take Control Of User Accounts

A Critical Failure Of Apple Allowed To Take Control Of User Accounts

A flaw in the ‘Login with Apple’ system in third-party applications and services that did not have an additional security system in place could allow ‘hackers’ to gain control of a user account.

The security flaw was discovered in April by researcher Bhavuk Jain, who informed the technology company of a ‘zero-day’ vulnerability that has already been corrected. For this discovery, Apple, through its rewards program, has paid him $ 100,000.

Specifically, it is a localized fault in the ‘Login with Apple’ system, which allows users to access third-party applications and websites with their Apple ID. This system allows the user to hide their email, if they do not want to put theirs, which generates a random and exclusive ’email’ that redirects to personal email.

Jain discovered that on those third-party sites that had not implemented additional security measures, a ‘hacker’ could create a ‘token’ linked to any email ID, which would be valid with Apple’s public key. In this way, he could gain control of an account, making this failure critical.

The investigator has indicated in his publication that Apple investigated the situation and determined that he had not identified misuse of this ruling or accounts that had been compromised.
