Developer Releases Windows 95 OS as an App For Windows 10, macOS and Linux (slashdot)

Mark Wycislik-Wilson, writing for BetaNews: Last year, developer Felix Rieseberg released Windows 95 as an Electron app to let 90s computer users relive their younger years. Now he's back with a second version of the Windows 95 app, and it's even better than ever -- gaming classics such as Doom and Wolfenstein3D are now included, for starters! Based on the Electron framework, Windows 95 2.0 is written in JavaScript, and is essentially a 500MB standalone virtual machine. The original release was ...

Lessons from SpaceX: How to build the next Toyota Camry for space

M. Umair Siddiqui Contributor M. Umair Siddiqui, PhD is the chief scientist of Phase Four. In case you missed it, space is being democratized — and quickly. Last November, from a sheep farm in New Zealand, California-based Rocket Lab launched six payloads via their “It’s Business Time” small Electron rocket. The successful launch brings Rocket Lab one step closer to their goal of “super-frequent small payload deliveries .” Indeed, one of the satell...

Structure and function of photosynthetic protein explained

In Germany, an international research team has elucidated the structure and mode of action of the photosynthetic complex I. The membrane protein complex plays an important role in the electron transport processes in photosynthesis. “The results close one of the last major knowledge gaps in the understanding of the photosynthetic electron transport pathways,” said the Dr. Marc Nowaczyk, who heads the Bochum project group, Cyanobacterial Membrane Protein Complexes. Complex I is found in almost all...

Watch Rocket Lab launch 10 cubesats into orbit tonight for NASA

It’s been just over a month since Rocket Lab’s inaugural (and long-delayed) commercial launch, “It’s Business Time,” and it’s about to take another customer to space: NASA. Tonight’s 8PM scheduled launch will take 10 small satellites to orbit as part of NASA’s Educational Launch of Nanosatellites (ELaNa) XIX mission. This is not only Rocket Lab’s first all-NASA launch, but the first launch from NASA under its “Venture Class Launch Services” initiative, which is taking advantage of the new gen...

Electron and the Decline of Native Apps

SwiftOnSecurity, regarding Microsoft's switch to Chromium as Windows's built-in rendering engine: This isn't about Chrome. This is about ElectronJS. Microsoft thinks EdgeHTML cannot get to drop-in feature-parity with Chromium to replace it in Electron apps, whose duplication is becoming a significant performance drain. They want to single-instance Electron with their own fork. Electron is a cancer murdering both macOS and Windows as it proliferates. Microsoft must offer a drop-in version with na...

Acoustic phonon lifetimes limit thermal transport in methylammonium lead iodide [Applied Physical Sciences]

Hybrid organic–inorganic perovskites (HOIPs) have become an important class of semiconductors for solar cells and other optoelectronic applications. Electron–phonon coupling plays a critical role in all optoelectronic devices, and although the lattice dynamics and phonon frequencies of HOIPs have been well studied, little attention has been given to phonon lifetimes....

Rocket Lab successfully sent a whole bunch of satellites into orbit and scared some birds

SpaceX gets a whole lot of press for leading the charge in the private spaceflight industry, but there's a number of other companies also vying for their share of the pie. One of them is Rocket Lab, and it demonstrated its growing prowess over the weekend by launching a half dozen satellites into orbit. As reports, the company's Electron rocket took off from its private launch facility in New Zealand on Sunday, successfully dropping six satellites into place. Company CEO Peter Beck too...

Rocket Lab's Modest Launch Is Giant Leap For Small Rocket Business

Reader Iwastheone shares a report: A small rocket from a little-known company lifted off Sunday from the east coast of New Zealand, carrying a clutch of tiny satellites. That modest event -- the first commercial launch by a U.S.-New Zealand company known as Rocket Lab -- could mark the beginning of a new era in the space business, where countless small rockets pop off from spaceports around the world. This miniaturization of rockets and spacecraft places outer space within reach of a broader swa...

Measurement Shows the Electron's Stubborn Roundness (slashdot)

OneHundredAndTen writes: A new article in Nature reports of a new, extremely precise measurement of the electric dipole moment of the electron. The conclusion is that, within the margin of error of the measurement, the electron remains a perfect sphere. This implies that supersymmetric theories keep running out of corners to hide, that another nail is driven into their coffin, and that string theory looks less and less compelling. By lighting up the molecules with lasers, "the scientists were ab...

Wunderlist’s founders just raised $19M to build an online presentation tool

The founding team behind Wunderlist, the productivity app acquired by Microsoft in 2015, today announced they’ve raised $19 million to bring their next project to life: Pitch.com. The idea behind Pitch is attractive to anyone frustrated with the limits of existing presentation software. At its heart, it’s a bit like Powerpoint or Prezzi, but it places a strong emphasis on embedding online-specific content, like tweets and videos. Pitch also places a lot of focus on cross-platform support. Like S...

Exploit puts popular web and mobile apps at risk

A new exploit could allow users to bypass security checks in Electron, a popular cross-platform development framework. The exploit, posted by Trustwave, has been patched and developers should update their apps as soon as possible. The exploit could allow cross site scripting in some apps by turning on nodeIntegration, a method that allows the app to not only connect to its own modules but also Node.js modules. From the announcement: Electron applications are essentially web apps, which means ...
