New, smaller satellites are developed

Copyright 2008 by United Press International

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (UPI) — U.S. scientists say they are developing a satellite about the size of a loaf of bread that will be deployed to study space weather.

The National Science Foundation-funded project called Radio Explorer, or RAX, is being led by the University of Michigan and the SRI International Corp., a California independent research and technology development organization.

The satellite, called CubeSat, is to be the first free-flying spacecraft, and will be built, in part, by members of the university’s Student Space Systems Fabrication Laboratory.

CubeSats are approximately 4-inch cube-shaped devices that launch from inside a P-Pod — a special rocket attachment developed by California Polytechnic State University and Stanford University.

The RAX satellite will essentially be made of three CubeSats and will measure the energy flow in the Earth’s ionosphere, where solar radiation turns regular atoms into charged particles.

“This project will help us better understand space weather processes, how the Earth and sun interact and how this weather produces noise in space communication signals — noise that translates to lower quality telecommunications capabilities and error in GPS signals,” said Assistant Professor James Cutler, a co-principal investigator with physicist Hasan Bahcivan of SRI. RAX is scheduled for launch in December.Digg!

    This blog is really nice and informative. We are pleased to know this blog is really helping people and it’s our pleasure to post informative content on this useful blog created by webmaster.

    Here’s our market view on American stock market for 10th October, 2008

    The stock market has collapsed – since Sept. 19 the DJIA is down 25% and the S&P 500 is down 28% and down 42% from a year ago.

    How can this happen so quickly and so dramatically when so many good things have occurred? Oil is down to $82 a barrel; interest rates are very low; the dollar is up; valuation levels are extremely attractive among many blue chip stocks.

    What's the real problem? The problem that is killing the stock market is a lack of hope about the future.

    Hope springs from optimism that is based on facts and history. Look at the history of America and really all of mankind. Life is full of setbacks and problems – that's just the deal. But this too shall pass, as all scary periods have.

    Doomsayers have been around forever and their batting average is zero. Buying stock is based on hope – hope for the future. If one doesn't have hope, they shouldn't be in this business.

    So what is the best service we, as professionals, can provide for our clients?

    First, discuss the fact that we are dealing with serious problems but it is not at all like 1929. The Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department are doing many things to restore confidence in the financial system. There is global coordination in attacking the problem, which is lack of confidence.

    Tell your clients to look at history of our great nation and what has happened since 1776 when we faced very serious problems. The stock market actually rose steadily about six months after Pearl Harbor and until the end of WWII even though the outcome was not at all clear for several years.

    No one knows when the stock market will bottom and a new bull will commence. We do know that stocks and mutual funds offer the best values we have seen since Black Monday, Oct. 19, 1987.

    Almost all Americans have hope about the future of our nation, but they need help to control their normal fears. Team
