Mark shuttleworth

Mark shuttleworth - die man in die wolke

Op 25 April 2002 is 'n vuurpyl vanaf Baikonoer gelanseer en minder as agt minute later het dit die aarde se atmosfeer verlaat. Sover as wat die oog kon sien, was die ganse woestyn bedek met vroeë lenteblommetjies – ‘n veelkleurige tapyt wat gestrek het tot op die horison. Die enkele wit rookpluim wat deur die vuurpyl agtergelaat is, en bokant die blommeplaat uitgestyg het, kon vir kilometers ver gesien word. Binne in die klein en beknopte kapsule wat deel van die vuurpyl uitmaak, was 'n span van drie ruimtereisigers, die Rus en ook die vlugkaptein, Juri Gidzenko, Roberto Vittori, die Italiaanse vlugingenieur, en Mark Shuttleworth, die Suid-Afrikaanse internet-miljoenêr. Die posisie wat hy tydens die vlug beklee het, was dié van tweede vlugingenieur. Die hoof verskil tussen hom en sy twee mede-ruimtemanne was dat hy R208 miljoen uit sy eie sak betaal het vir die voorreg om die ruimtereis te kon meemaak. Mark Shuttleworth was nie net 'n ruimtetoeris nie; trouens, hy het 'n sleutelstap verder gegaan: hy het homself maande voor die tyd aan 'n streng en byna moordende ruimte-opleidingsprogram onderwerp.

  1. Oor watter persoonlikheidseienskappe moet 'n ruimtevaarder beskik?
  2. Hoekom?
  3. Sal jy met jou persoonlikheidseienskappe 'n ruimtevaarder kan word?

Baikonoer : poort na die sterre

Toe die eerste werkspanne in 1955 begin het met die konstruksie van wat vandag bekend staan as Baikonoer, die dorp vanwaar die Russe hul ruimtetuie lanseer, het hulle nie geweet wat hulle bou nie. Aanvanklik het dit bloot bekend gestaan as Terrein 10. Die posadres was Moskou-400, maar die werkers was in die woestyn van Kazachstan, 2 300 km suidoos van die hoofstad.

Op die vlaktes rondom Terrein 10 het die ander "terreine" een vir een vorm aangeneem. Terrein 9 was 'n sementfabriek en Terrein 15 was 'n aanloopbaan vir vliegtuie. Die Sowjet-elite is by Terrein 17 in luukse akkommodasie gehuisves. Terrein 3 was 'n vuurpylbrandstoffabriek. En toe, in 1956, Terrein 10.

Om mee te begin, is 'n enorme trog in die grond gegrawe, blykbaar die grootste mensgemaakte gat in die wêreld. Rondom die gat is vier reuse-pilare opgerig met 'n dik betonblad bo-op. Dit sou dien as die lanseerblad waarvandaan Spoetnik in 1957, en Joeri Gagarin in 1961 gelanseer is.

Na Gagarin se historiese vlug moes die Sowjet-Unie die naam van die lanseerterrein aan die Internasionale Lugvaartfederasie bekend maak sodat dit amptelik as vlugrekord erken kon word. Die politieke base van die Sowjet-Unie wou aanvanklik die ligging van Terrein 10 geheim hou, en het die naam van die naaste dorp ingedien - Baikonoer, 'n myndorpie 300 km verder.

Vir bykans veertig jaar was Baikonoer sinoniem met die Russiese ruimteprogram. Ten spyte van die feit dat die dorp die afgelope klompie jare erg verval het, is dit nog steeds die episentrum van die Russiese bemande ruimteprogram.

By die ingangshek is 'n sekuriteitshuisie met die woorde "Poort na die sterre" teen die muur. In die dorre woestynlandskap anderkant die heining is daar 15 lanseerterreine, monteeraanlegte, antennevelde, aanloopbane, beheersentrums, lanseerblaaie en spoorlyne.

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
ninjadapaul
20/(×-6^2)
Salomon
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
ninjadapaul
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
ninjadapaul
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
Salomon
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
Salomon
I got X =-6
Salomon
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
ninjadapaul
oops. ignore that.
ninjadapaul
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
ninjadapaul
hmm
Abhi
is it a question of log
Abhi
🤔.

or infinite solutions?
Kim
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
Azam
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
Damian
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
Azam
Hello
Uday
I'm interested in Nanotube
Uday
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
Prasenjit
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
Ali Reply
the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
