  • The largest wildfire in New Mexico history—which is still burning—was started by the U.S. Forest Service, federal investigators announced Friday. The catastrophe began as two fires that merged into one. Both wildfires have now been conclusively traced to planned burns conducted by the Forest Service. Planned or “prescribed” burns are used to reduce the threat of extreme fires by reducing the amount of dry fuel in the forest. So far, the New Mexico fire has destroyed 330 homes and scorched some 500 square miles. The cost of battling the blaze has surpassed $130 million, and rises another $5 million each day.

 

  • A severe pilot shortage is leading airlines to reduce capacity and hike ticket prices as the busy summer travel season begins. And this is no passing storm. As United CEO Scott Kirby told investors. “The pilot shortage for the industry is real, and most airlines are simply not going to be able to realize their capacity plans because there simply aren’t enough pilots, at least not for the next five-plus years.” In part, the crisis can be traced to a Covid shutdown-prompted wave of early retirements and a coinciding lull in pilot hiring, training and licensing.

 

  • In Arthur C Clarke’s award-winning 1973 novel, Rendezvous With Rama, a mysterious 50-kilometre-long cylindrical spacecraft enters the Solar System. A space mission is mounted to intercept it and study it before it flies back out and is swallowed up by the darkness of interstellar space. Now, remarkably, science fiction is morphing into science fact. Astrophysicist Prof Avi Loeb of Harvard University believes ‘Oumuamua, a mysterious interstellar object that flew through the Solar System in 2017, may have been an alien Rama-like artefact. But being a scientist rather than a science fiction writer, he wants data. “With that in mind, I have set up Project Galileo,” he says. “Its aim is to scan the heavens for the next ‘Oumuamua and send a space mission to fly by it and photograph it.” More than 100 scientists, led by Loeb, are involved in Galileo. They are subtly shifting the emphasis of the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) from looking for signs of alien biology or electromagnetic signals to hunting for objects as signs of alien technology. Loeb thinks this change is long overdue. “For 70 years we’ve been barking up the wrong tree,” he says, alluding to the 70-odd years astronomers have been searching for intelligent radio signals from our Galaxy. “That search is predicated on the assumption that extraterrestrials communicate via radio waves, a technology we have used for just over a century and which advanced extraterrestrials may have long ago left behind,” he adds. “I think a better strategy is to look for artefacts: alien tech.”

 

  • Sprawling network of secret biological labs has been plagued with critical safety flaws, while funds allocated to fix the issues have been consistently disappearing. Multiple laboratories were simply not fit to handle the hazardous materials and pathogens they have been working with, Chief of Russia’s Radioactive, Chemical, and Biological Protection Forces Lieutenant General Igor Kirillov said during a briefing on Friday. The facilities that were supposed to meet the biosafety requirements were riddled with assorted issues, the official said, citing a report by the Ministry of Health of Ukraine. The ministry allegedly uncovered multiple violations at the Anti-Plague Institute, including the improper containment of pathogens, faulty ventilation, and a lack of control over access to hazardous materials. The institute has had a large collection of some 654 pathogens, including anthrax, cholera, and other infectious diseases, Kirillov added.

 

  • Northrop Grumman tweeted Wednesday that its new stealth bomber “made strides toward flight readiness with a successful loads calibration test.” A press release from Northrop Grumman described how the B-21 Raider “completed the first — and most critical — loads calibration test.” The first of three ground test before the aircraft takes to the skies in 2023. The next two tests will be engine testing and low-speed and high-speed taxi tests. Air Force Magazine noted the B-21 was initially supposed to take flight in the second half of this year, though Northrop Grumman has pushed that back to 2023 (cause of delays weren’t cited).
    Northrop Grumman said the stealth bomber would be unveiled later this year.

 

  • Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree stating that certain foreign copyright holders may be paid in rubles, expanding on previous counter-measures against companies based in ‘unfriendly countries’ that are currently imposing sanctions on Moscow. Published on a government website on Friday, the executive order extends the existing special ruble-based payment mechanism to include the fulfillment of financial obligations to some intellectual property owners, including those that are “associated with unfriendly countries,” have “supported anti-Russian sanctions,” or ceased business activity in Russia under the pretext of penalties and pressure from their own governments. All royalties, fees, and other payments will be transferred to a special Type-O bank account, opened in a Russian bank for each affected IP owner, with or without their consent. Funds cannot be withdrawn from the account, but can only be directed to a limited range of purposes, such as paying taxes, without special authorization from Russian officials.

 

  • The air “mix” that we breathe on planet Earth is made up of about 78 percent nitrogen, 21 percent oxygen, 0.9 percent argon, and 0.1 percent other gases. But there is also a generous helping of different compounds and elements, with one of these “ingredients” thrown into focus by new research. Dutch chemists have discovered that a reactive, or “unstable” class of compound called organic hydrotrioxides exists in the atmosphere. Despite their brief existence, the chemicals could have an effect on life on Earth that we know hardly anything about, research published in Science on 26 May said. “These compounds have always been around – we just didn’t know about them,” chemist Henrik Grum Kjærgaard from the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, was cited by media outlets as saying, adding: “But the fact that we now have evidence that the compounds are formed and live for a certain amount of time means that it is possible to study their effect … and respond if they turn out to be dangerous.”

 

  • A lawsuit has been filed in Nairobi, Kenya, accusing Meta and an outsourcing company called Sama of violating labor laws and the Kenyan constitution. Filed on May 10, the suit filed by Daniel Motaung accuses the two companies of union busting, wage theft, racial discrimination, psychological torture, unequal pay for equal work, and human trafficking, among other accusations. Sama provides content moderation for Facebook in Africa. According to the suit, the company treated employees poorly, misled them with inaccurate or vague job postings and then subjected them to disturbing content. Content moderators were subjected to content that included beheadings, the sexual abuse of children, kidnapping, and murder. Some employees, a previous TIME investigation revealed, were paid $1.50 an hour and Motaung was paid $2.20 an hour. Motaung says that the company flew workers to Kenya from other parts of Africa, focusing on Africans from disadvantaged backgrounds. The job postings, he says, did not say they would be content moderators or be subjected to the disturbing content that caused him and his colleagues to suffer trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The suit alleges this amounts to human trafficking.

 

  • The Defense Advanced research Project Agency (DARPA) has begun work on a new wing-in-ground effect aircraft concept dubbed the ‘Liberty Lifter’, with the preliminary design looking like a cross between Soviet engineer Rostislav Alexeyev’s ekranoplans and Howard Hughes’ H-4 Hercules (aka. The Spruce Goose). In a press release issued last week, DARPA promised to design, build and fly a “long-range, low-cost X-plane capable of seaborne strategic and tactical lift,” with the vehicle expected to complement “existing cargo aircraft by proving revolutionary heavy air lift abilities from the sea.” In a video accompanying the release, DARPA showed off a rendered version of aircraft taking off and landing, arriving at a tropical location and unloading armoured vehicles. The agency took note of the fact that unlike traditional aircraft or ships, the Liberty Lifter isn’t dependent on fixed airfields or ports.

 

  • Researchers from the Geological Society of America are going to crack open an 830-million-year-old salt crystal to study ancient microorganisms they believe are there and may even still be alive. The team of geologists first reported their discovery in the journal Geology earlier this month. According to them, the microorganisms they want to study are little remnants of prokaryotic and algal life that were preserved inside microscopic bubbles of liquid in the crystal. Such crystals are known as halites, a type of rock salt which is the natural form of sodium chloride (NaCl). This very halite was extracted from the 830-million-year-old Browne Formation of central Australia, and contains organic solids and liquids. The discovery has shown that microorganisms can remain well preserved in halite over hundreds of millions of years. Scientists believe this will help them search for life “in both terrestrial and extraterrestrial chemical sedimentary rocks”. Geologists also hope that similar microorganisms could be discovered on Mars, where vast salt deposits located in what once used to be water-filled reservoirs have already been identified. Since the news about plans to crack open the crystal was shared online, some people have been expressing concerns about whether there are risks of starting a new pandemic once ancient microorganisms are released. However, researchers insist they will carry out the procedure with the utmost caution. Also, some biologists who have commented on the upcoming experiment said that a microorganism that has never seen a human can in no way cause a disease among us.

 

  • China’s interest in US agriculture poses a broad range of potential “security threats,” the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission has warned. In a report published Thursday, the commission complained about limited information on Chinese ownership and use of US farmland, citing a lack of federal requirements on foreign ownership reporting, and limited enforcement mechanisms for false reporting. The report suggested that “without the proper collection of land data, it will be increasingly difficult for the US government to monitor and consider any potential risks to national security.” The report also claimed that there is a threat of Chinese weaponization of GMOs (genetically modified organisms), suggesting US “economic and food security…could be at risk if GM seed code is used to create a bioweapon.”

 

  • The Namibian government is on a deliberate drive to encourage the development and investment in renewable energy projects, with lithium batteries used for storing solar energy. AFRITIN Limited has announced that metallurgical test work results have shown the successful production of a petalite lithium concentrate at its flagship asset at the tin mine at Uis, where it will be constructing a pilot processing plant. According to a statement from the London-listed technology metals mining company’s CEO, Anthony Viljoen, this indicates the potential for a lithium by-product at the open-cast mine, situated in the Erongo region.

Monolith on Mars Moon

When the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) spacecraft was mapping the small moon of Mars, Phobos, and sent its incredible images from the small, potato-shaped moon back to Earth, ufologists had a field day speaking about the mysterious structure that was clearly visible on the surface of Phobos. Martian monolith was photographed by the HiRISE camera onboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, from about 180 miles (300 km) above. According to scientists at the University of Arizona, this intriguing object is projected out of the martian surface and appears to be perfectly rectangular, standing in an upright position and measuring about 5 meters across. The discussion on the monolith became more intense when Buzz Aldrin, one of the first men to land on the Moon, jumped into the matter. He said: “We should visit the moon of Mars, there’s a monolith there, a very unusual structure on this little potato-shaped object that revolves around Mars once every seven hours. When people find out about that they are going to say, “Who put that there? Who put that there?” Well, the universe put it there, or if you choose, God put it there.”
