Summer, but not as hot as it was the previous couple of weeks. For now, we have some badly needed rain.

https://newatlas.com/space/neutron-images-find-zinc-culprit-arecibo-radio-telescope-collapse/

Almost three years after the event, neutron scans by the Oak Ridge National Laboratory have uncovered the cause of the platform collapse that resulted in the destruction of the 1,000-ft (300-m) Arecibo Observatory radio telescope.

As part of this effort, Adrian Brügger, director of Columbia University’s Robert A. W. Carleton Strength of Materials Laboratory, took whole sections of the failed cable sockets, complete with cables and socket liners, and subjected them to neutron scans at Oak Ridge's High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR).

In the case of Arecibo, the scans allowed Brügger to make cross section images of the cable sockets and determine which cables slipped and by how much, even if they were still buried inside the zinc lining. What became apparent was that as cables were subject to the stress of supporting the platform they began to fray. This, in turn, caused the zinc to flow under the tension. Eventually, the zinc flowed so much that the sockets failed and the cables were pulled out entirely.

Exactly how much of this slippage occurred before or during the event could not be determined. What is known is that two cables failed before the collapse, with a third failure causing the platform to fall.

Let's drop it in here.

Nasa promises transparency as it steps up UFO research

Summary

* Nasa officials have been speaking about a newly-published, lengthy study into hundreds of reports of UFOs - or UAPs, as it calls them
* It says most UFO sightings have been explained, but there are a few that are not "known human-made or natural phenomena"
* Nasa says there is no reason to conclude that extra-terrestrial sources are behind the UAPs, but it also cannot rule out that possibility
* The organisation says it wants to create a "roadmap" for future study and wants to move from "sensationalism to science" - which has pledged to do transparently
* The report details how artificial intelligence could be used to investigate future sightings
* It says it's important for national security and air safety - 16 of the world's leading data and AI scientists have worked on the study

I am getting this on Seti Forums: SETI@home is temporarily shut down for maintenance. Please try again later.
Is it resurrection or just a final spasm?

Message 113459 - Posted: 27 Jan 2024, 1:02:54 UTC - in response to Message 113458.  

The message probably happens when they take it off-line to perform backup of forums (occasional spasms).

/Sarcasm on >
I would hedge my bets on chance of project revival are about the same as odds of the Dallas Cowboys Football team winning the Superbowl this year!

5 hours on and the message is still there I'd say it crashed and no one has the root password anymore.

Well, if they have shut it down for good, one could have expected that they at least announced the shutdown, either on the website, or somewhere else.
