HAARP Facility to Resume Ionospheric Research this Week

Alaska’s super-power High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) transmitters in Gakona, Alaska, will fire up again for the spring research campaign April 6 – 14. University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) Space Physics Group researcher and HAARP Chief Scientist Chris Fallen, KL3WX, told ARRL that more than 40 hours of “externally funded” experiments are in the queue. “Scientists from US universities and government labs will explore the physics of scintillations, magnetic field-aligned plasma irregularities, artificial and natural atmospheric airglow, stimulated electromagnetic emissions, plasma waves, and radio-enhanced ionization,” Fallen said. “The HAARP transmitter is still at 80% net power, but by summer...

The WWII Spy Station With Super Powers

At first glance, the Chopmist Hill area of Scituate, Rhode Island looks like many rural New England towns. It’s a quiet and heavily forested place, about 20 miles west of the capital city of Providence. The economic hub of Chopmist Hill consists of a gas station and a Dunkin’ Donuts. Driving through the town, there would be no reason to suspect that, in 1946, this peaceful village came very close to becoming the United Nations Headquarters. The climate was acceptable, and the proximity to Providence, Boston, and New York City was convenient. The most important reason for its consideration, however,...

This Radio Is Controlled With Water Glasses [Video]

When was the last time you poured water onto your radio to turn it on? Designed collaboratively by , and , Pour Reception seeks to challenge what constitutes an interface, and how elements of play can create a new experience for a relatively everyday object. Lacking buttons or knobs of any kind, Pour Reception appears an inert acrylic box with two glasses resting on top. A detachable instruction card cues the need for water, and pouring some into the glasses wakes the radio. Read More: Hackaday

New info on mystery space radio pulses (FRB)

Astronomers have fresh insight on a mysterious source of recurring radio pulses from space. Fast radio bursts (FRB) are one of the most persistent puzzles in astronomy. While usually short-lived, one source in the sky was sending out repeated flashes. Now, a team says the strange emission could be caused by a dead star with an exceptionally powerful magnetic field. Details were reported here at the 231st American Astronomical Society meeting. The first FRB was discovered in 2007, in archived data from the Parkes Radio Telescope in Australia. Astronomers were searching for new examples of magnetised neutron stars called pulsars,...
