Mini satellite from Japan will send Morse

Five small low-cost satellites are deployed today from the ISS to conduct scientific missions and test a possible type of optical communication scheme.

CubeSats, palm-sized satellites measuring 4 inches, are solar-powered cubes that will orbit the Earth for the next 100 days.

  2. 2. Mini satellite from Japan will send MorseFive small low-cost satellites are deployed today from the ISS toconduct scientific missions and test a possible type of opticalcommunication scheme.CubeSats, palm-sized satellites measuring 4 inches, are solar-powered cubes that will orbit the Earth for the next 100 days.One of the satellites launched was a Japanese one tasked withsending a Morse code message that would be seen across theworld.To be the first orbiter to transmit a message across the sky usingLED is what the designers of the satellite is hoping to achieve. Thesmall cube, measuring only 10cm, is set to send a message in Morsecode using bursts of intense light.
  3. 3. The message was only meant to be seen in Japanbut according to Professor Takushi Tanaka ofFukuoka Institute of Technology, they were floodedwith requests from researchers in Slovakia,Germany, Britain, Hungary, Italy and US that thesatellite also communicate when it flies over theircountries.“Requests came from far more people than Iexpected – a man in Silicon Valley wanted to see itwhile another man wanted us to flash it overCentral Park in New York,” said Professor Tanaka.
  4. 4. Tanaka said they would try their best to fulfill the requestsbut also cautioned observers against possible deceptionfrom random light flashes and added that seeing theMorse code message would depend on the weather.The satellite is named Niwaka, a pun in southwesterndialect of Japan. It will flash the message “Hi this is NiwakaJapan” to observers around the world equipped withbinoculars. They will, weather-permitting, be able to catchcolored flashes of light from the sky — red for those in thesouthern hemisphere and green for those in the northern.That is because the front part of the satellite has adifferently colored LED from its back part.
  5. 5. Astronauts on the International Space Station (ISS) havelaunched the satellite from its Kibou (Hope) laboratory andis set to orbit Earth 16 times per day. Three of the fivesatellites launched is from Japan, each of them provided byWakayama University, Tohoku University and FukuokaInstitute of Technology.Aside from transmitting the Morse message, the satellite isalso set to take pictures of Earth using its camera and high-speed data transmission capability.The satellites were released at 400 km above the Earth lastweek and is now in regular orbit. Certain locations andtimes will be announced on the ISS website.
  6. 6. Beeswax discovered as ancient tooth fillingAn ancient tooth patched with beeswax filling and was recovered fromSlovenia a hundred years ago could very well be the oldest evidence ofancient dentistry.According to a report by researchers published in the PLoS ONEjournal last week, the beeswax filling is 6,500 years old and wasapplied on a tooth recovered from Italy. It was estimated that theperson who owned it could be in his 20s. Furthermore, the extremewear on the tooth is evident of other activities like making tools,weaving and softening leather where it was used, aside from eating.Radiocarbon dating performed on the beeswax and a large ionaccelerator, revealing it to be thousands of years old. The particularjaw has been in an international center for a hundred years and yet noone noticed something interesting in it until recently.
  7. 7. The beeswax is apparently applied to the left tooth of a jawaround the time of death but scientists cannot determine ifit was before or after. But if the person was still alive whenthe beeswax was applied to his tooth, then this discoverycould be the oldest evidence of therapeutic dentistry in theEuropean region.Experts assume that the beeswax application might be forrelieving sensitivity and pain in teeth so they are nowlooking into dental tests to verify if this treatment will beeffective.
  8. 8. “At the moment we do not have any idea if this is an isolatedcase or if similar interventions were quite spread in NeolithicEurope. In collaboration with our interdisciplinary team, we areplanning to analyze other Neolithic teeth in order to understandhow widespread these types of interventions were,” saidarcheologist Federico Bernardini.On the other hand, it is also possible that the beeswax wasplaced on the tooth after death as part of burial customs at thattime, and that the crack they found was due to its exposure formany years. This particular hypothesis is believed to be unlikelybecause of how the beeswax was placed in the crack.Discovering proof of ancient dentistry is very rare, with oldestexamples dating back from 5000 to 9000 year-old teeth found inthe Middle East.
