communicationJapan’s next generation terahertz communication will push to 400 gigabits per second

Nippon Telephone and Tokyo Institute of Technology have jointly developed an ultra high-speed IC for wireless front-end that operates on a terahertz frequency band, and in the 300 GHz band they have succeeded in developing the world’s fastest 100 gigabit …

broadbandFCC Proposed 10 Mbps wireless download speed is Nigeria’s download speed

Under a new FCC proposal, any area able to obtain wireless speeds of at least 10 Mbps down, 1 Mbps would be deemed good enough for American consumers. Under the previous FCC, wireless was deemed important, but not yet anywhere …

5gTransmission of video signals 100 times faster than fastest cellular network

Researchers have demonstrated the transmission of two separate video signals through a terahertz multiplexer at a data rate more than 100 times faster than today’s fastest cellular data networks. Multiplexing, the ability to send multiple signals through a single channel, …

aliensArecibo seeing unusual signals from 11 light years away at Ross128

The Planetary Habitability Lab at the University of Puerto Rico is conducting a scientific campaign from the Arecibo Observatory to observe red dwarf star with planets. These observations might provide information about the radiation and magnetic environment around these stars …

communicationBoosting interstellar communication to a laser pushed sail probe to multiple megabits per second

Michael Hippke has calculated how to have multi-megabyte communication speeds between a laser pushed sail probe and a telescope at our solar systems gravitational lensing point. Previously Hippke had determined how to use stellar photon pressures of the stellar triple …

communicationOneweb building High-Volume Satellite Manufacturing Facility

OneWeb Satellites, a 50-50 joint venture between would-be constellation operator OneWeb and satellite manufacturer Airbus, has inaugurated the first serial-production line for its planned 900 communications satellites for OneWeb’s low Earth orbit constellation. “This facility is a pivotal step toward …

communicationSpacex will begin deploying low cost mass produced internet satellites starting in 2019

SpaceX said it plans to launch thousands of satellites on Falcon 9 rockets beginning in 2019 to establish what would one day become a global broadband internet constellation. Patricia Cooper, SpaceX’s vice president of satellite government affairs, told the Senate …

5gTerabit DSL could solve the last mile problem with far less cost

John Cioffi described Terabit DSL (TDSL). It include carrying 50-600 GHz wireless signals through the tiny spaces between individual twisted pairs or the cables that bundle a hundred of them. “We are shooting for a terabit/second over 100 meters, 100 …

communicationMIT wants to build an add-on 1 MW sub-critical molten salt reactor beside their 6MW light water reactor to avoid 10 years of regulatory approvals

MIT plans a one-megawatt demonstration molten salt reactor. It would be incapable of sustaining a fission reaction on its own, the researchers believe they could avoid building a standalone experimental prototype, which the Nuclear Regulatory Commission generally requires. That site …
