NASA astronauts successfully pilot SpaceX’s Crew Dragon spacecraft manually for the first time – theinformationsuperhighway

NASA astronauts Doug Hurley took over manual control of the SpaceX Crew Dragon spaceship on Saturday, shortly after the historic first launch of the vehicle from Cape Canaveral in Florida. Crew Dragon is designed to fly fully autonomously throughout its missions, including automated docking, de-orbit, and landing processes. However, it has manual control systems in case something goes wrong and the astronauts have to take control. This test is the first time the manual controls have been used in space and is an integral part of Crew Dragon's certification for the regular use of human flights.

astronaut Bob Behnken and Hurley removed their fashionable SpaceX Spacesuits just before Hurley completed the manual maneuvers, which is also part of the plan. You can do without the suits in the pressurized cabin during the transit to the ISS and you only have to put them back on to dock with the space station, and the inside of Crew Dragon actually offers enough space for you to move around in. This also makes it easier for you to operate the Spacecraft control.

In manual maneuver tests, in which Hurley uses the spacecraft's touchscreen controls to move the capsule to the so-called LVLH position (locally vertically locally horizontally), using the earth as a reference navigation point. This basically means placing the kite in the same orientation as an airplane flying over the earth, with the planet "under" the kite during flight. The test includes notifying the flight computer that it will not take over while Hurley is performing the maneuvers, but does not include final completion of the control commands by sending them to the flight computer as this is the one that actually completes the automated flight and docking process.

Hurley will conduct two tests during the mission, the one he just called a "far field" flight test because he is far from the ISS, and a "near field" test that will be done when they're closer to the station.

You can try the manual control system used by Behnken and Hurley itself – no spaceship required. All you need is a browser and this ISS Docking Simulator, which was created and published by SpaceX. It's a bit tricky, but not as difficult as you might think thanks to the intuitive design of the user interface.

Welcome back to This u00a0Week u00a0in Apps, the Extra Crunch series that summarizes the latest operating system news, the applications they support, and the money flowing through it all. N.

The app industry is hotter than ever: 2019 saw record downloads and $ 120 billion in consumer spending in 2019. People are now spending three hours and 40 minutes a day on apps that compete with television. Apps are not just a way to spend idle hours. You are big business. In 2019, mobile-first companies had a combined valuation of $ 544 billion, 6.5 times higher than companies with no mobile focus

In this Extra Crunch series, we help you stay up to date with the latest news from the world of apps that are delivered weekly. N.

This week we're continuing to look at the impact of the Coronavirus outbreak on the world of mobile applications. Fresh data from App Annie on trends in various app categories that benefit from pandemics, locks and social changes. We also keep up to date with COVID-19 contact tracking apps, make headlines, and keep up with the other news of the week. N.

We launched some notable new apps this week, including HBO's new streaming service, HBO Max, and three new app experiments by the Facebook research and development group. Android Studio 4.0 was also launched this week. Instagram gets better AR tools and IGTV gets ads. TikTok is classified as spam in India. N.

In the meantime, what's going on with the app review? A shady app is at the top of the iPhone app store. Google takes action against apps that spread conspiracy theory. And a TikTok clone uses a pyramid scheme invitation system to raise the charts. N.

COVID-19 apps for contact tracking in the messages u00a0 n

    n

  • Latvia: Reuters reported this week that Latvia wants to be one of the first countries to launch a smartphone app, Stop Covid, that uses Apple's new toolkit and Alphabet u2019s Google to detect coronavirus infections. N.
  • Australia: The role of the country's Covidsafe app in recovery seems marginal, The Guardian reports. In the month since its inception, only one person has been reported who has been identified based on their data. In fact, a survey found that Australians supported using telecommunications metadata to track close contacts (79%) rather than downloading an app (69.8%). In a second survey, their support for the app dropped to 64%. The app has been slandered by public debate about it and technical issues. N.
  • France: The country's data protection officer, CNIL, reviewed its StopCovid contact tracking app and found that, with some limitations, there were no major problems with the technical implementation and legal framework for StopCovid. France does not use the Google and Apple contact tracking API, but a controversial central contact tracking protocol called ROBERT. This assumes that a central server assigns a permanent ID and generates short-lived IDs that are attached to this permanent ID. CNIL says the app will eventually be open source and will create a bug bounty. The app cast its first vote on Wednesday for publication. N.
  • Qatar: Amnesty International has discovered serious security vulnerabilities in Qatar's mandatory contact tracking app. An investigation by Amnesty's security laboratory discovered a critical vulnerability in the configuration of the Qatar EHTERAZ contact tracking app. Corrected now, the vulnerability would have allowed cyber attackers to access highly sensitive personal information, including the name, national ID, health status, and location data of more than a million users. N.
  • India: India’s contact tracking app Aarogya Setu will go open source on Tuesday, Ajay Prakash Sawhney, Minister of Electronics and Information Technology. The code will be published on GitHub. Almost 98% of the more than 114 million users of the app are on Android. The government will also offer security experts who find bugs or vulnerabilities a $ 1,325 cash reward. N.
  • Switzerland: Several thousand people are currently testing a pilot version of the Swiss contact tracking app SwissCovid. Like Lativia, the app is one of the first to use Apple and Google's contact tracking API. Employees from EPFL, ETH Zurich, the army, selected hospitals and government agencies will be the first to test the Swiss app before it is released in mid-June. N.
  • China: China's health tracking QR codes, embedded in popular WeChat and Alipay smartphone apps, raise privacy concerns, according to Reuters. In order to be able to roam freely, people must have a green rating. You must now also submit their QR codes for health to gain access to restaurants, parks, and other venues. These efforts met with little resistance. But the eastern city of Hangzhou has since suggested that users receive a color-coded health badge based on their medical records and lifestyle habits, including how much they have exercised, their eating and drinking habits, whether they have smoked, and how much they have slept the night before . This proposal sparked a storm of criticism of China's Weibo, a Twitter-like platform. N n

    The public interest notice replaces the substance of what Trump wrote, meaning a user has to actively click through to view the offending tweet.n

    Engagement options are also limited as a result by this label, meaning users can only retweet the offending tweet with a comment; they cannot like it, reply to it or vanilla retweet it.n

    Twitter’s notice goes on to explain why it has not removed the offending tweet entirely — and this is where the public interest element of the policy kicks in — with the company writing: “Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible.”u00a0n

    Twitter appears to be shrugging off the president’s decision yesterday to sign an executive order targeting the legal shield that internet companies rely on to protect them from liability for user-created content — doubling down on displeasing Trump, who has accused social media platforms generally of deliberately suppressing conservative views despite plenty of evidence that ad-targeting platform algorithms actually boost outrage-fuelled content and views — which tends, conversely, to amplify conservative viewpoints.n

    In the latest clash, Trump had tweeted in reference to violent demonstrations taking place in Minneapolis sparked by the killing of a black man, George Floyd, by a white police officer — with the president claiming that “THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd” before threatening to send in the “Military.”n

    “Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Vielen Dank!" Trump added — making a bald threat to use military force against civilians.n

    n

    Twitter has wrestled with the issue of how to handle world leaders who break its content rules for years. Most often as a result of Trump, who routinely uses its platform to bully all manner of targets — from rival politicians to hated journalists, disobedient business leaders and even actors who displease him — as well as to dispense direct and sometimes violent threats.n

    Since being elected, Trump has also used Twitter’s global platform as a foreign policy weapon, firing military threats at the likes of North Korea and Iran in tweet form.n

    Back in 2018, for example, he teased North Korean leader Kim Jong Un with button-pushing nuclear destruction (see below tweet) — before going on to “fall in love” with the dictator when he met him in person.nnn

    North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the u201cNuclear Button is on his desk at all times.u201d Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!n

    Twitter’s go-to defence for not taking offending Trump tweets down in the past has been that, as U.S. president, the substance of what the man tweets — however mad, bad and dangerous — is inherently newsworthy.n

    However, more recently, the company has created a policy tool that allows it to intervene — defining terms last summer around “public interest” content on Twitter.n

    It warned then (almost a full year ago, in June 2019) that it might place a public interest notice on tweets that would otherwise violate its rules (and therefore merit a takedown) — in order to “to provide additional context and clarity,” rather than removing the offensive tweet.n

    Fast forward a year and the tech giant has started applying labels to Trump’s tweets — beginning with a fact-check label earlier this week, related to the forthcoming U.S. election, and following up now with a public interest notice related to Trump glorifying violence.n

    So, finally, the tech giant seems to be inching toward drawing a limit-line around Trump in near real time.n

    Explaining its decision to badge the U.S. president’s threat to order the military to shoot looters in Minneapolis, the company writes: “This Tweet violates our policies regarding the glorification of violence based on the historical context of the last line, its connection to violence, and the risk it could inspire similar actions today.”nnn

    We have placed a public interest notice on this Tweet from @realdonaldtrump. https://t.co/6RHX56G2ztn

    “We’ve taken action in the interest of preventing others from being inspired to commit violent acts, but have kept the Tweet on Twitter because it is important that the public still be able to see the Tweet given its relevance to ongoing matters of public importance,” Twitter goes on.n

    It also links to its policy against tweets that glorify violence — which states unequivocally (in bold): “You may not threaten violence against an individual or a group of people.”n

    Back in June, when Twitter announced the “abusive behavior” label, it also warned that tweets that get screened with a public interest notice will not benefit from any algorithmic acceleration, writing: “Weu2019ll also take steps to make sure the Tweet is not algorithmically elevated on our service, to strike the right balance between enabling free expression, fostering accountability and reducing the potential harm caused by these Tweets.”n

    However the newsworthiness of Twitter’s decision to finally apply its own rules vis-a-vis Trump will ensure there’s plenty of non-algorithmic amplification (and no little irony).n

    We reached out to the company with questions about its decision to apply a public interest screen on Trump’s latest tweet but at the time of writing it had not responded.n

    On Wednesday night, Twitter CEO and co-founder, Jack Dorsey, put out a series of tweets defending its decision to apply a fact-check label to Trump’s earlier misleading tweets about vote-by-mail.n

    “This does not make us an ‘arbiter of truth,'” wrote Dorsey. “Our intention is to connect the dots of conflicting statements and show the information in dispute so people can judge for themselves. More transparency from us is critical so folks can clearly see the why behind our actions.”nnn

    Fact check: there is someone ultimately accountable for our actions as a company, and thatu2019s me. Please let our employees down. Weu2019ll continue to point out incorrect or disputed information about elections globally. And we will admit to and own any mistakes we make.n

    Dorsey’s remarks followed pointed comments made by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to Fox News, seeking to contrast Facebook’s claimed “neutrality” when policing its platform with Twitteru2019s policy of taking a stance on issues such as political advertising (which Twitter does not allow).n

    u201cI just believe strongly that Facebook shouldnu2019t be the arbiter of truth of everything that people say online,u201d Zuckerberg told the conservative news station. u201cPrivate companies u2026 especially these platform companies, shouldnu2019t be in the position of doing that.u201dn

    It’s notable that Dorsey used Zuckerberg’s exact turn of phrase — u201carbiter of truthu201d — to reject Facebook’s attack on Twitter’s policy as a straw man argument.n

    Update I, Trump reacts: In early reaction to Twitter’s move the Trump administration has now quote-retweeted the offending tweet from the official White House Twitter account — reamplifying the president’s violent threat.nnn

    u201cThese THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I wonu2019t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we'll take control, but when the looting begins, the shooting starts. Thank you!u201d https://t.co/GDwAydcAOwn

    Trump has also reiterated his threat to regulate social media by revoking Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act in a new series of tweets this morning — accusing Twitter of ignoring “lies & propaganda being put out by China or the Radical Left Democrat Party.”nnn

    Twitter does nothing against all the lies and propaganda spread by China or the Radical Left Democrat Party. They have targeted Republicans, Conservatives and the President of the United States. Section 230 should be revoked by the Congress. Until then, it will be regulated!n
