first_img Jeff Bezos reveals plans for the moon and beyond “Anyone who wants to build a lunar base at some point must of course be familiar with the local conditions.”While the telescope is already in operation, more work remains to tweak the artificial intelligence and other software that’ll help the system discern actual lunar transient phenomena from more mundane events like birds or airplanes flying in front of the cameras in Earth’s atmosphere. Kayal hopes to have the whole system dialed in and working on solving the mystery in about a year. Tags The year’s wackiest ‘evidence’ aliens and UFOs are real (pictures) The new lunar telescope, north of Seville, Spain, includes two cameras that watch the moon every night for the odd flashes. A team led by Hakan Kayal, professor of space technology at Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg in Germany, will then analyze photo and video sequences of the event. When the telescope and the team observe the lunar phenomenon, they’ll compare their results to data from the European Space Agency, which also keeps a constant eye on the moon.”If the same thing was seen there, the event can be considered confirmed,” Kayal explained in a release Friday.He adds that figuring out the source of the strange flashes makes sense now, given the resurgent interest in establishing a presence on the moon from government space agencies like NASA and private companies like SpaceX and Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin.

Possible explanations range from meteors to moonquakes to UFOs, but they have yet to be proven. A new telescope in Spain could provide more data and perhaps an answer to the mystery. So-called “lunar transient phenomena” can refer to flashes of light on the moon that are either fleeting or longer-lasting. Some areas of the lunar surface have also been seen to darken randomly. Since at least as far back as 1787, people have documented these enigmatic lights. On April 19 of that year, astronomer William Herschel reported seeing three reddish glowing areas on the moon that he interpreted to be erupting lunar volcanoes. Apollo astronauts, including Apollo 11’s Michael Collins, also reported seeing unusually bright areas while orbiting our natural satellite.”There is an area that is considerably more illuminated than the surrounding area,” Collins told NASA mission control the day before the moon landing in 1969. “It just has — seems to have a slight amount of fluorescence to it. A crater can be seen, and the area around the crater is quite bright.”  last_img

first_imgBNPBangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) on Tuesday alleged that the government is not providing shelter to the Rohingyas fleeing from violence-hit Myanmar to brand itself as an ‘anti-Muslim administration’ to the global community.”Thousands of Rohingyas had been provided with shelter, food, water and medicine during Ziaur Rahman’s rule under such a situation. Sheikh Hasina, you’re not willing to give shelter to Rohingyas as you want to introduce yourself as anti-Muslim to the world community,” said BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi.Speaking at a human chain programme, he further said, “The Rohingyas are receiving bullets and their children are crying for lack of food, but Bangladesh is preventing them from entering the country.”Rizvi said the people of Bangladesh except the government are sympathetic to the Rohingyas as Myanmar has long been trying to eliminate a minority community.”Bangladesh government is silently watching the persecution of Rohingyas by the Myanmar forces. We strongly protest at and condemn the government’s such inactive role.”The BNP leader also criticised the international organisations for playing the role of silent spectators over the barbaric torture on Rohingyas.Aparajeyo Bangladesh, a pro-BNP platform, arranged the programme in front of the Jatiya Press Club.At least 89 people were killed as militants besieged border posts in northern Rakhine State of Myanmar on Friday. The attack triggered a fresh influx of refugees towards Bangladesh.Rizvi alleged that the government has been involved in a fight with the judiciary and the chief justice following the Supreme Court’s verdict that annulled the 16th constitutional amendment.”The ruling party leaders are now spiting venom against the chief justice as the observations in the 16th amendment verdict caused heartburn for the party. Their all leaders, including the prime minister, are criticising the chief justice. Not only that, they let loose the ACC and NBR against him,” said the BNP leader.He said Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader and prime minister’s adviser About Gowher Rizvi also met the chief justice to mount pressure on him to drop from the verdict the observations that reflect people’s views.Describing Awami League itself as a disaster, he said peace cannot be restored in the country until the party quits power. “When any anti-people regime occupies power of a country, it’ll continue to invite trouble and disaster one after another.”last_img
