Help The FCC Fight Itself

Right now, you can go online and connect with friends, watch videos and read the news. There’s a good chance you are reading this online right now.

We do much more on the internet than consume content, however. Increasingly, the internet is also where we create. We use online platforms and digital services to develop, share and spread ideas around the corner and around the globe.

This is the open internet experience we all know, and it’s a big part of why America’s internet economy is the envy of the world.

But this week, the leadership at the Federal Communications Commission put forth a plan to gut the foundation of this openness. They have proposed to end net neutrality, and they are trying to force a vote on their plan on Dec. 14.

“The Hubble Deep Field saw approx. 13+ Billion Light Years in one direction, so can we can assume we would see 13+ Billion in all directions? The deep field picture showed infant galaxies that are misshapen and just short of the first stars. The big bang itself lies just beyond. Does this imply that the entire universe is roughly 26+ Billion Light Years across? How is it that I have seen estimates showing we only see a small percentage of all the structure that is out there in our universe?”

When we look out at the distant Universe with our most powerful telescopes, as far as we can possibly see, what do we find? Galaxies, smaller and fainter and more and more distant, as far as we’re capable of looking. We have yet to hit the limit of where the galaxies come to an end; as far as we’ve ever been able to look, we’ve found light. Yet at some point, they must cease. There can’t be an infinite number of galaxies in a finite volume of space, and since the Universe has only had 13.8 billion years since the Big Bang, there has to be a finite number of galaxies, and a point beyond which they no longer exist. The deepest view of the Universe, the Hubble eXtreme Deep Field, revealed 5,500 galaxies in a volume comprising just 1/32,000,000th of the sky. But even that appears to be less than 10% of the galaxies out there in the Universe, despite containing galaxies much more distant than 13.8 billion light years.

How does this all make sense? And what do we know about what we haven’t yet seen? Find out on this week’s Ask Ethan!

Heat from the friction of rocks caused by tidal forces could be the “engine” for the hydrothermal activity on Saturn's moon Enceladus. This presupposes that the moon has a porous core that allows water from the overlying ocean to seep in, where the tidal friction exerted on the rocks heats it. This shows a computer simulation based on observations from the European-American Cassini-Huygens mission. It also offers among others an answer to the long-standing question of where the energy that can support water in liquid form on the small, cryovulcanic moon far from the sun comes from. The Heidelberg University research group led by planetary scientist Assistant Professor Dr Frank Postberg participated in the investigation.

In 2015, the researchers had already shown that there must be hydrothermal activity on Saturn's moon. Icy volcanoes on Enceladus launch huge jets of gas and icy grains that contain fine particles of rock into space. A detector on the Cassini space probe was able to measure these particles. They originate on the sea floor more than 50,000 metres below the moon's ice shell, which ranges in thickness from three to 35 kilometres. Using computer simulations and laboratory experiments, the scientists discovered signs that deep below the rock and the water interact – at temperatures of a least 90 degrees Celsius. But where does the energy for the hydrothermal systems that drive the transport of matter come from? And how exactly do the grains of rock get to the surface of the icy moon?

The current studies under the direction of the University of Nantes (France) offer an explanation. According to Dr Postberg, the rock core of Enceladus is probably porous, which is why the water from the overlying ocean is able to deeply permeate it. At the same time, strong tidal forces from Saturn affect the “loose” rock in the moon's core. The new computer simulations show that the frictional heat is transferred very efficiently to the water circulating through the core, heating it to more than 90 degrees Celsius. This water dissolves some constituents of the rocky material. At certain hotspots, the hydrothermal fluids vent back into the ocean. Due to the cooling dissolved material now partially precipitates as fine particles, which are carried by the warm water to the ocean's surface. The hotspots are located primarily at the poles of Enceladus.

Food supplement

Capped langur (Trachypithecus pileatus)

Bhutan

This large male had carried a sizable piece of rock up a tree and was meticulously breaking off pieces and grinding them in his hands as to release the good parts. He would then seemingly taste a piece and eat it all if it was of the right stuff.

You can see his white lips from previous tastings.

The rest of the group was in part doing the same or just hanging out. After some more chipping off of the rock it just dropped it. The rock hit the ground with a loud thump which was proof that this was a powerful male able to lift and carry a big piece of abrasive rock up the tree to have his supplement of the day.

There are most definitely more easy ways to get this done, and I encountered other langurs eating off the dust of the roads which is quite interesting to watch as it looks like they are praying.
