  • ?Fukushima nuclear reactor will get mapped with subatomic particles (1602 characters)

    Thu, 02 Jul 2015 02:02:00 -0400?Fukushima nuclear reactor will get mapped with subatomic particlesEngadget RSS Feed


    Scientists from Los Alamos National Lab have discovered how to look through and map just about anything with a new process: the science-fictionally sounding muon tomography. Even in places like the highly radioactive Fukushima reactor, the method doesn't require any disassembly or any need for x-rays or ultrasound. Instead it logs the movement of muons (of course), a radioactive subatomic particle that exists, well, everywhere. Two giant aluminum sides are put either side of whatever needs looking into, and the system measures the trajectory of these muon particles. From this, the scientists are able sketch the object, given enough of the tiny things.

    There's a drawback however, and it's time. There's typically just one muon per square centimeter per minute, says Matt Durham, the paper's lead author. This means it could take around four to six hours to scan one part of a pipe. Durham doesn't see it as a huge issue, however: "You could have a guy come in, set up a scanning machine, go off to his other duties, then at the end come back and can make a judgement call." If an issue is spotted, a more precise scan and inspection would happen. If not, the process continues elsewhere. With assistance from the Los Alamos lab, Toshiba built big, serious version of the muon detector, and plans to place a huge 27-square-foot slab on both sides of the Fukushima plant's core. Whereas robots have so far struggled, the company hopes the technique will be able to detect and help pinpoint the melted fuel inside.

  • This website only lets one person in at a time (1359 characters)

    Thu, 02 Jul 2015 01:13:00 -0400This website only lets one person in at a timeEngadget RSS Feed

    As I write this, I'm waiting in line. Not at the grocery store or camping out for a superfluous wearable, but to get into a website. That only one person can visit at a time. For a total 60 seconds. It's madness. There are 3,662 people ahead of me and my ticket number is 113,664. I'm not great at math, but I estimate that it's going to be awhile before I see what's contained on Most Exclusive Website. As site designer Justin Foley tells The Washington Post, he made this website because it's the exact opposite of what the internet is supposed to be: open and accessible by anyone. As for what's in the metaphorical box (or Marcellus Wallace's digital briefcase), that isn't so clear, but WaPo thinks it's random pictures of an "internet-famous animal." So, Grumpy Cat perhaps?

    The website isn't exactly new, but it recently made an appearance on Johnny Lists, subsequently hit the front page of Reddit and collapsed under the weight of so many people trying to log in at once. As Foley tells it, of the 300,000 people who've tried accessing the site since Tuesday just 55,000 made it in and out of every nine people waiting in line, eight of them jump ship. And me? I accidentally closed the tab. Cripes. Time to start over.

    André Borschberg, the pilot at the controls of the Solar Impulse 2 aircraft, has broken the world record for the longest solo flight. Borschberg has now been aloft in the solar-powered plane for more than 80 hours without refueling or touching down, breaking the 76-hour record set by Steve Fossett in 2006 on board the Virgin Atlantic Global Flyer. And Borschberg isn't done yet ? the pilot and co-founder of Solar Impulse has another 40 hours in the air before he's due to reach his destination in Hawaii.

    The solar-powered plane took off from Nagoya in Japan on the eighth stage of its 13-stage round-the-world trip earlier this week. The journey to Hawaii was previously set to begin in Nanjing, China, but bad weather conditions forced...

  • Exploring the Relationships Between Tech Skills (Visualization) (1671 characters)

    Thu, 02 Jul 2015 00:30:00 -0400Exploring the Relationships Between Tech Skills (Visualization)Slashdot

    Nerval's Lobster writes: Simon Hughes, Dice's Chief Data Scientist, has put together an experimental visualization that explores how tech skills relate to one another. In the visualization, every circle or node represents a particular skill; colors designate communities that coalesce around skills. Try clicking "Java", for example, and notice how many other skills accompany it (a high-degree node, as graph theory would call it). As a popular skill, it appears to be present in many communities: Big Data, Oracle Database, System Administration, Automation/Testing, and (of course) Web and Software Development. You may or may not agree with some relationships, but keep in mind, it was all generated in an automatic way by computer code, untouched by a human. Building it started with Gephi, an open-source network analysis and visualization software package, by importing a pair-wise comma-separated list of skills and their similarity scores (as Simon describes in his article) and running a number of analyses: Force Atlas layout to draw a force-directed graph, Avg. Path Length to calculate the Betweenness Centrality that determines the size of a node, and finally Modularity to detect communities of skills (again, color-coded in the visualization). The graph was then exported as an XML graph file (GEXF) and converted to JSON format with two sets of elements: Nodes and Links. "We would love to hear your feedback and questions," Simon says.

    Thu, 02 Jul 2015 00:01:00 -0400Nikon announcement: Nikkor 16-80mm f/2.8-4E, 500mm f/4E and 600mm f/4E FL ED VR lensesNikon Rumors

    Nikon officially announced three new lenses (this post will be updated multiple times in the next few hours, refresh for the latest version):

    Nikkor AF-S DX 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR


    MTF charts:



    Lens design:

    The world's lightest* 5x normal zoom lens compatible with the Nikon DX format

    TOKYO - Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR, a 5x normal zoom lens compatible with Nikon DX-format digital SLR cameras.

    The AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR is a fast, 5x normal zoom lens that supports angles of view for focal lengths of 16-80mm (effective angles of view equivalent to those of a lens with 24-120mm focal lengths in FX-format/35mm [135] format), as well as a maximum aperture of f/2.8 at the maximum wide-angle position.

    It is the world's lightest* lens, combining superior performance with excellent portability, further maximizing the agility of Nikon's DX-format digital SLR camera system. The AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR is a high-performance lens that boasts superior optical performance and Nikon's exclusive technologies. In addition to a built-in VR mechanism that enables nimble, yet full-scale hand-held shooting with vibration reduction compensation equal to a 4.0-stop* increase in shutter speed, it is the first lens compatible with DX-format digital SLR cameras to be equipped with a built-in electromagnetic diaphragm, and for which Nano Crystal Coat and fluorine coat have been adopted.

    The latest optical design and fast maximum aperture respond to the vigorous photographic needs of professional and advanced amateur photographers by enabling capture of a wide variety of scenes, beginning with true wide-angle photography.

    Primary AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR features:

    • Equipped with a vibration reduction (VR) mechanism that effectively compensates for camera shake (camera shake compensation equivalent to a 4.0-stop*2 increase in shutter speed)
    • Adoption of Nano Crystal Coat, aspherical lens elements and ED glass elements for superior optical performance with which chromatic aberration and ghost are suppressed
    • Equipped with an electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism that achieves stable auto-exposure with high-speed continuous shooting
    • Adoption of Nikon's exclusive and highly durable fluorine coat, which effectively repels water and oils, and makes cleaning the lens easier even when it does get dirty, on the outer surfaces of the extreme front and rear lens elements

    *1 Among 5x normal zoom autofocus (AF) lenses with a maximum aperture of f/2.8 at the maximum wide-angle position for digital SLR cameras equipped with image sensors equivalent to the APS-C size available as of July 2, 2015. Statement based on Nikon research.

    Lens design:

    Adoption of fluorite elements for the world's lightest* lenses 500 mm and 600 mm super-telephoto lenses with a maximum aperture of f/4

    TOKYO - Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of two super-telephoto lenses compatible with Nikon FX-format digital SLR cameras. Both lenses offer a maximum aperture of f/4. The AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4E FL ED VR has a focal length of 500 mm, and the AF-S NIKKOR 600mm f/4E FL ED VR has a focal length of 600 mm.

    The AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4E FL ED VR and AF-S NIKKOR 600mm f/4E FL ED VR have been made significantly lighter with the adoption of two fluorite elements for each. The AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4E FL ED VR weighs approximately 3,090 g*, making it roughly 20% lighter than its predecessor, and the AF-S NIKKOR 600mm f/4E FL ED VR weighs approximately 3,810 g*, making it about 25% lighter than its predecessor. This reduction in weight makes both lenses the world's lightest* lenses available at their respective focal lengths. In addition to fluorite elements, adoption of a magnesium alloy for lens barrel components not only contributes to the lighter weight, but also preserves strength and durability. Adoption of fluorite and ED glass elements also enables superior rendering with effective reduction of chromatic aberration, and adoption of Nano Crystal Coat provides excellent optical performance with which ghost and flare are suppressed.

    In terms of functions, the lenses offer a vibration reduction (VR) function that exhibits camera shake compensation equal to a 4.0-stop* increase in shutter speed. The lenses are also equipped with a SPORT VR mode, which enables effective photography of subjects that are moving rapidly and unpredictably. Improved VR performance that allows for a more stable view through the viewfinder makes immediate shooting after the camera is turned on and the shutter-release button is pressed halfway possible. In addition, superior AF tracking performance and an electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism enable stable and reliable auto-exposure (AE) with high-speed continuous shooting of sporting scenes, wild birds, and the like.

    The lenses offer professional photographers powerful support with advanced specifications that include fluorine coat, which repels dust and water and makes cleaning the lenses easier when they do get dirty, and a tripod collar ring that uses bearings for smooth transition from shooting in vertical orientation to horizontal orientation, and vice versa.

    *1AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4E FL ED VR: Among fixed focal length (prime) autofocus lenses with a focal length of 500 mm and maximum aperture of f/4, compatible with digital SLR cameras equipped with a full-size image sensor, available as of July 2, 2015.
