Space stunner: Moon is shrinking, shocking study reveals

Researchers led by Thomas Watters, from the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C., published their findings Monday in Nature Geoscience.

The expanded subsidizing demand, reported by US President Donald Trump in trademark style through Twitter, comes nearly two months after Vice President Mike Pence proclaimed the target of shortening by four years NASA's past course of events for returning space travelers on the Moon out of the blue since 1972.

By combining information gathered by LRO and data from the various Apollo missions, researchers were able to "advance our understanding of the Moon while suggesting where future missions intent on studying the Moon's interior processes should go", according to LRO project scientist John Keller.

"We found that a number of the quakes recorded in the Apollo data happened very close to the faults seen in the LRO imagery", said Nicholas Schmerr, an assistant professor of geology at the University of Maryland, in a statement.

The researchers say that the Moon does not have any tectonic plates which can cause an natural disaster, but it has been reporting several tectonic activities due to the gradual cooling down of the satellite's interior.

These fault scarps resemble small stair-step shaped cliffs when seen from the lunar surface, typically tens of yards (meters) high and extending for a few miles (several kilometers). The Artemis mission will send the first American woman and the next American man to the moon by 2024.

At least eight are linked to thrust faults that are formed as the moon shrinks. But 28 of those quakes were relatively shallow and powerful - one had a magnitude of 5.5, according to a NASA factsheet. "I think it is very handsome that 50 years after Apollo, the Artemis program will carry the next man and the first woman to the Moon", said NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine, according to the Verge.

Nasa's total annual budget is approximately $21.5 billion, and in the 2019 fiscal year, the agency spent about $4.5 billion on developing the Orion spacecraft, the Space Launch System (SLS) heavy rocket and a new lunar orbital mini-station, three elements essential to the Artemis mission. These images show that there are boulders at the bottom of bright patches on the slopes of the faults.

The Apollo 11, 12, 14, 15 and 16 astronauts placed seismometers—instruments that measure the shaking produced by quakes—at their landing sites.

In 2010, Watters spearheaded a team that scrutinized images from Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter instigated in 2009 and discerned innumerable serpentine cliffs administered broadly over the surface.

NASA also released a William Shatner-narrated promotional clip to explain its integrated moon-Mars goals this week, optimistically punctuated by the tagline "We are going". This provides further evidence of moonquakes due to thrust faults.

"They use a lot of statistical arguments, and I think they do good science, but I wouldn't say it's definitely there", Ceri Nunn of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, not involved in the study, tells Mann.

Mobile wallet Ipaymu and QR codes increase sales in Indonesia

Nowadays the majority of payment transactions in Indonesia are conducted by means of cash. However, modern technical solutions soon will be able to change this situation. Recently an e-wallet Ipaymu was introduced to citizens of the country, which will help to draw attention of smartphone users with the possibility to make mobile payments by means of QR technologies and will probably increase the popularity of cashless payments.

QR codes are used for medical purposes

QR codes have gained popularity around the world. They are used in all spheres of a human activity, helping him to get quick access to the information of his interest, for convenience of making purchases and payment of bank receipts.
