Chinese scientists find 6G radiation can increase the size of brain cells

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, internet, neuroscience

6G radiation is affecting brain cells. As 6G as the successor of 5G is poised to take over the world, should we worry? I feel so.


Discovery could help assess new communication technology and also develop therapies to treat brain diseases, Beijing researchers say.

The Elon Musk space company may be popular for ferrying astronauts and cargo missions on its reusable rockets, but its satellite internet services have also made a mark in recent times. When Russia invaded Ukraine earlier this year, it also tried to break the communication chain inside the country by attacking its fiber optic network. However, SpaceX’s terminals were flown in, and connectivity was restored in a matter of days.

The entanglement of two quantum memory systems 12.5 km apart from each other

Posted by in categories: computing, internet, quantum physics

Quantum computing technology could have notable advantages over classical computing technology, including a faster speed and the ability to tackle more complex problems. In recent years, some researchers have also been exploring the possible establishment of a “quantum internet,” a network that would allow quantum devices to exchange information, just like classical computing devices exchange information today.

Saving water with wireless technologies is possible — but there are challenges

Posted by in categories: food, internet, robotics/AI, sustainability, wearables

Water is the most essential resource for life, for both humans and the crops we consume. Around the world, agriculture accounts for 70% of all freshwater use.

I study computers and information technology in the Purdue Polytechnic Institute and direct Purdue’s Environmental Networking Technology (ENT) Laboratory, where we tackle sustainability and environmental challenges with interdisciplinary research into the Agricultural Internet of Things, or Ag-IoT.

FCC Cancels $886 Million in Funding for SpaceX’s Starlink

Posted by in category: internet

“The Commission determined that these applications failed to demonstrate that the providers could deliver the promised service,” the FCC said in a statement.

FCC Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel added: “We cannot afford to subsidize ventures that are not delivering the promised speeds or are not likely to meet program requirements.”

In December 2020, the FCC tentatively awarded $886 million to SpaceX to help its Starlink service supply high-speed broadband to 642,925 locations in 35 states. However, it came with a requirement (Opens in a new window) that SpaceX provide a long-form application about how Starlink would meet its obligations before the federal funding could be fully secured.

Elon Musk’s bid for a $886 million Starlink subsidy was rejected by the FCC: ‘it failed to demonstrate’ that it ‘could deliver’

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, internet, satellites

The Federal Communications Commission denied SpaceX’s bid for $886 million in US subsidies on Wednesday.

Elon Musk’s startup was seeking funds to provide its satellite internet service to rural communities in nearly 650,000 locations across 35 states. The FCC funding is part of a $9.2 billion Rural Digital Opportunity Fund — an effort to bring WiFi to remote areas of the country where it would be more expensive to serve customers.

Starlink and LTD Broadband were both denied FCC subsidies. The agency said in a press release that both companies “failed to demonstrate that the providers could deliver the promised service.”

ISPs spent $235 million on lobbying and donations, “more than $320,000 a day”

Posted by in categories: government, internet, space

The biggest Internet service providers and their trade groups spent $234.7 million on lobbying and political donations during the most recent two-year congressional cycle, according to a report released yesterday. The ISPs and their trade groups lobbied against strict net neutrality rules and on various other telecom and broadband regulatory legislation, said the report written by advocacy group Common Cause.

Of the $234.7 million spent in 2019 and 2020, political contributions and expenditures accounted for $45.6 million. The rest of it went to lobbying expenditures.

Comcast led the way with $43 million in lobbying and political contributions and expenditures combined during the 2019–2020 cycle, the report said. The highest-spending ISPs after Comcast were AT&T with $36.4 million, Verizon with $24.8 million, Charter with $24.4 million, and T-Mobile with $21.5 million. “The dollar amounts are shocking,” the report said. “In total, these corporations spent more than $234 million on lobbying and federal elections during the 116th Congress—an average of more than $320,000 a day, seven days a week!”

SpaceX says researchers are welcome to hack Starlink and can be paid up to $25,000 for finding bugs in the network

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, internet, satellites

SpaceX says responsible researchers are welcome to hack into its satellite internet network, Starlink. It added that it could pay them up to $25,000 for discovering certain bugs in the service.

The announcement came after security researcher Lennert Wouters said last week he was able to hack into Starlink using a $25 homemade device. He said he performed the test as part of SpaceX’s bug bounty program, where researchers submit findings of potential vulnerabilities in Starlink’s network.

In a six-page document entitled “Starlink welcomes security researchers (bring on the bugs),” SpaceX congratulated Wouters on his research.
