"If you tried to start a car that's been sitting in a garage for decades, you might not expect the engine to respond. But a set of thrusters aboard the Voyager 1 spacecraft successfully fired up Wednesday after 37 years without use.

“The Voyager flight team dug up decades-old data and examined the software that was coded in an outdated assembler language, to make sure we could safely test the thrusters," said Jones, chief engineer at JPL.


On Tuesday, Nov. 28, 2017, Voyager engineers fired up the four TCM thrusters for the first time in 37 years and tested their ability to orient the spacecraft using 10-millisecond pulses. The team waited eagerly as the test results traveled through space, taking 19 hours and 35 minutes to reach an antenna in Goldstone, California, that is part of NASA's Deep Space Network.
Lo and behold, on Wednesday, Nov. 29, they learned the TCM thrusters worked perfectly -- and just as well as the attitude control thrusters (- which have been failing lately - )."


Via NASA -With these thrusters that are still functional after 37 years without use, we will be able to extend the life of the Voyager 1 spacecraft by two to three years."

Aus der heutigen Papier-FAZ (via Perlentaucher) über das Fernsehfilmfestival in Baden-Baden:

"Er [Der deutsche Fernsehfilm] nimmt virulente Themen zwar auf - wie etwa zuletzt den religiös motivierten Terror oder die Gefahren der digitalen Welt -, aber dies eher nach dem oberflächlichen Erregungs- und Verfahrensmuster der Talkshows. Die Themen kommen und gehen. Die zwölf Filme des Festivals widmen sich sogar gänzlich zeitlosen Topoi: Familie, Vertrauen, Krankheit, Tod und Glauben. Damit macht man nichts falsch. Doch 'es ist noch kein Schiff gerettet worden, indem alle zum Mitteldeck rennen', meinte Jury-Mitglied Thea Dorn."

Für den Satz verzeiht man Frau Dorn sogar den von Adorno abgeleiteten Künstlernamen.

Ok, das Foto ist im Vorbeigehen aufgenommen und leider total unscharf geworden. Aber ich schwöre, dieses polnische Bestattungsunternehmen hat den Firmennamen "Orkus" gewählt. Was ich aufgrund der mir so einfallenden, eher negativen Konnotationen eher ... mutig finde.

(PS: Mir fällt gerade ein warum die wahrscheinlich hier sind und das ist leider schon tragisch. Aber es geht ja nicht darum, sondern um den kuriosen Namen, also lass ich das stehen.)

Und wer noch ein praktisches Weihnachtsgeschenk für die Jugend sucht, kann ja mal sowas erwägen: (Gegebenenfalls einfach noch in 'nem Schutzumschlag verpacken und den beschriften mit "Wie werde ich Youtuber?", aber im Wesentlichen kann sich doch in den 99 Jahren nichts geändert haben.)

Zitat Wikipedia: "Mit Orcus wird seine böse, bestrafende Seite bezeichnet, der Gott, der die Toten im Jenseits folterte." Ja, nee, vielleicht nicht ganz passend.

Das scheint kein Scherz zu sein.

Ich gehe davon aus, dass die hiesigen Kaninchenzuchtvereine lückenlos auf Botox überwacht werden. Oder lauert da auch ein Skandal?

Die BBC hat eine interessante Reportage über einen Trickbetrüger veröffentlicht, der locker die Goldmedaille gewinnen würde, wenn es olympische Spiele für Trickbetrüger gäbe:

The playboy who got away with $242m – using ‘black magic’

Die Geschichte erinnert stark an Hollywood-Filme wie "American Hustle". Vielleicht verkauft der Protagonist ja noch als Krönung seiner Karriere die exklusiven Filmrechte gleichzeitig mehreren Hollywood-Studios. Zuzutrauen wäre es ihm allemal.
