No shuttle, but Seattle gets full-size simulator

Seattle's Museum of Flight will not get a space shuttle. It will, however, get a full-fuselage shuttle trainer that every shuttle astronaut used to prepare for spaceflight.

By Jack Broom
Seattle Times staff reporter
12 April 2011


Seattle's Museum of Flight will not get a space shuttle.

It will, however, get a full-fuselage shuttle trainer in the new $12 million facility it is building. The trainer is the only one of its kind in the world. Every shuttle astronaut used the simulator to prepare for spaceflight. Unlike the actual shuttles, the public will be allowed to walk inside the trainer.

Ending years of speculation, NASA Administrator Charles Bolden officially announced this morning that sites in New York, California, Washington, D.C., and Florida will become permanent homes for the agency's four space shuttles after the program winds down later this year.

Former astronaut Bonnie Dunbar, who led the museum's effort to get a space shuttle, acknowledged her disappointment at today's decision, but said she was thrilled that the museum will get the trainer, which she trained in. She also complimented Bolden for handling the selection process with "such grace and fairness."

Bolden, a former shuttle commander, made the announcement from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida on the 30th anniversary of the first space-shuttle launch and the 50th anniversary of the first manned spaceflight.

Backers of the Seattle museum's efforts to get a space shuttle had conceded they faced stiff competition. Twenty-one museums and visitor centers, some with more direct ties to the shuttle program, had applied to host a shuttle on permanent display.

The winning sites:

• As expected, Bolden said the shuttle Discovery will go to the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum.

• Endeavour, targeted for its final launch April 29, will spend its retirement in Los Angeles at the California Science Center.

• Atlantis, targeted to complete the final mission of the shuttle program this summer, will then go to Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

• Enterprise, which was used for early flight testing but did not fly in space, will go to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York.

Two other shuttles, Challenger and Columbia, were destroyed during missions, killing their crews.

The shuttle trainer that is coming to Seattle is one of five.

Museum patrons will be able to enter the trainer, something that wouldn't be possible if an actual shuttle joined the Museum of Flight's new Space Gallery exhibit.

"Had we received the shuttle, you wouldn't be able to touch it or walk through it since it's an artifact," said Lee Keller, spokeswoman for the Museum of Flight.

The state's political leadership quickly expressed disappointment in the decision that Seattle won't be getting an actual shuttle.

In a statement, Sen. Patty Murray said she was "going to continue pushing NASA to keep us in mind as they think about where to send future space program artifacts."

Rep. Adam Smith said in a statement the Museum of Flight would have made "an ideal home for a NASA space shuttle," given the state's history of aviation innovation.

Gov. Chris Gregoire said her disappointment was tempered by the decision to give the Museum the fuselage training module,

"The largest of the trainers, this addition will allow visitors to actually climb aboard the trainer and experience the hands-on training that astronauts get. Visitors will not be allowed in the other shuttles, and this trainer is a true win for our dynamic museum," Gregoire said in a statement.

Since their creation as the first reusable spacecraft, NASA shuttles have flown more than 130 missions, carrying more than 350 people into space and traveling more than half a billion miles.

The Museum of Flight's bid for a shuttle was spearheaded by Dunbar, a veteran of five shuttle missions and a Yakima-area native.

Seattle's independent, nonprofit Museum of Flight is well along on construction of a $12 million, glass-enclosed Space Gallery, designed by SRG Partnership architects, to provide the indoor, climate-controlled site NASA is requiring for the shuttles.

The Seattle bid also stressed the area's aerospace history, the fact that more than 26 astronauts have Northwest ties, and the fact that Boeing 747s are used to transport space shuttles.

The museum also touted its educational programs, which NASA said would be a priority for any location seeking to host a shuttle.

"I feel very good about the fact that we met the requirements that NASA laid out," Dunbar said before the decision. But she acknowledged, "We've got some other strong institutions out there."

Last week, all 11 members of the state's congressional delegation wrote to Bolden, supporting Seattle's bid for a shuttle.

On Monday, Sen. Patty Murray reiterated her conviction that "Washington state would offer this national treasure a fantastic home in a community that values our aerospace history."

Doug King, CEO of the Museum of Flight, has said the Space Gallery, which is across the street from the Museum of Flight's primary building, was in the works even before NASA invited museums to apply for a shuttle, and will proceed with or without a shuttle.

The museum also has moon rocks, an Apollo space capsule and a Mars lander.

New York Times

April 13, 2011
Egyptian Prosecutors Order 15-Day Detention of Hosni Mubarak
By LIAM STACK

CAIRO — Egyptian prosecutors said on Wednesday they had detained former president Hosni Mubarak and his two sons for 15 days to face questioning about corruption and abuse of power, just hours after he was abruptly hospitalized in the beach resort of Sharm el Sheik.

The state-run daily newspaper Al Ahram said Mr. Mubarak, forced out of office by the revolution here on Feb. 11, was taken ill after prosecutors had begun questioning him about the accusations.

His detention was announced on state television and on a Facebook page set up by the Egyptian prosecutor general’s office, which also ordered that his sons be detained for 15 days for an investigation into allegations of corruption and abuse of authority.

“The public prosecutor has ordered the detention of former president Mohamed Hosni Mubarak and his two sons Alaa and Gamal Mubarak for 15 days pending investigation after the public prosecutor presented them with the current state of its ongoing investigation of charges and submitted the detention decision to the relevant police authority,” the Facebook posting said.

The Facebook page was set up to promote communication between the authorities and the families of those killed and injured during the 18 days of protest and turmoil that led to Mr. Mubarak’s ouster as a clamor for reform in the Arab world spread from Tunisia to Egypt. The protests have since spread to Yemen, Bahrain, Jordan, Syria and elsewhere.

Word of the detentions of Mr. Mubarak’s sons inspired exuberant demonstrations in Sharm el Sheik, with a crowd of young men chanting “15 days” and “God is great” in the face of riot police standing guard as the two brothers were driven away to detention, according to amateur video footage.

On Sunday, Egypt’s public prosecutor ordered the former president and his sons to be questioned in connection with a range of charges related to corruption and the use of violence against protesters during the uprising that began Jan. 25 and unseated him on Feb. 11. More than 800 people were killed during the three-week uprising, according to Egypt’s Health Ministry.

The specific reason for Mr. Mubarak’s admission to the hospital was not clear, although news reports spoke of heart problems. The justice minister, Mohammed el-Guindi, said questioning of the former president resumed in the hospital, an indication that his health problems were not severe.

Mr. Mubarak, 82, has been staying in Sharm el Sheik since he left office. His hospitalization came two days after he was told that he would be questioned in connection with possible criminal charges. News reports said that the questioning started on Tuesday.

Little is publicly known about the state of Mr. Mubarak’s health, a taboo topic during his 30 years as the leader of Egypt. As recently as 2007, a prominent newspaper editor, Ibrahim Eissa, was sentenced to six months in jail for publishing articles about Mr. Mubarak’s health. Rumors have circulated that Mr. Mubarak has suffered from pancreatic and colon cancer.

In Sharm el Sheik, a crowd pelted the police van carrying the brothers with water bottles, stones and flip-flops, The A.P. reported

The moves follow growing pressure from Egyptians to prosecute Mr. Mubarak and his family. Last Friday, tens of thousands of people rallied in Tahrir Square in Cairo calling for trials of Mr. Mubarak and his associates, including some members of the military council that now rules the country.

A core of protesters remained in Tahrir Square after that rally. They erected a barricade of barbed wire after clashes with security forces before dawn on Saturday left at least two people dead and dozens wounded.

On Tuesday afternoon, the protesters were forcibly removed from Tahrir Square by men in civilian clothes armed with clubs, who fought with protesters and removed their barricades, local news reports said. Many protesters were detained by the military police as they fled the square.

On Sunday, Mr. Mubarak denied the accusations against him and released a five-minute audio recording to a Saudi-owned satellite television network, Al Arabiya, defending his reputation. In the recording, he denied that he or his family had abused power or had any assets abroad.

Mr. Mubarak’s hospitalization prompted suspicions that he — or the ruling military council, which is increasingly seen as bent on protecting him — may be staging “an elaborate ruse to get him out of the country for treatment,” said Hani Shakrallah, editor of the news Web site Ahram Online.

“It could be a way to avoid questioning,” Mr. Shakrallah said. “But avoid it for how long? The military are determined to try him.” He added: “The report is not that far-fetched. It is possible they brought him in for the questioning, and the man got so upset that he fell ill.”

Mona El-Naggar contributed reporting.

Wired

Unpaid Blogger Hits ‘Slave Owner’ Huffington With $105M Class Action Lawsuit
By Sam Gustin
April 12, 2011 | 4:10 pm
Categories: Media

Arianna Huffington is like a “slave owner on a plantation of bloggers,” according to the lead plaintiff in a class action lawsuit that seeks more than $100 million in damages on behalf of 9,000 unpaid bloggers who, he argues, should be paid for helping build the Huffington Post into the valuable media property AOL bought for $315 million.

The lawsuit, led by well-known New York labor activist and Huffington Post blogger Jonathan Tasini, alleges that thousands of writers and other contributors have been wrongly denied any compensation for the value they created for the Huffington Post.

While not an unprecedented legal action, the scale of the alleged infractions — and the high profile of both Huffington and AOL — means that the outcome of this case could set an important standard about the rights of freelancers in the internet age.

“This is about justice,” Tasini told Wired.com by phone Tuesday. “Arianna Huffington is like a slave owner on a plantation of bloggers. The truth is, without the bloggers there was no Huffington Post and there would be no sale to AOL. She has decided to rob all these bloggers of a fair share of this profit-making venture.”

The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in New York federal court (.pdf), seeks at least $105 million in damages on behalf of the Huffington Post’s unpaid writers and other contributors. It names AOL, TheHuffingtonPost.com, Arianna Huffington, and Ken Lerer, the wealthy New York investor who co-founded the website with her, as defendants. They have 21 days to respond to the lawsuit.

In a statement e-mailed to Wired.com, Huffington Post spokesperson Mario Ruiz dismissed the complaint as “wholly without merit.” The lawsuit was first reported by Jeff Bercovici at Forbes.com.

“As we’ve said before, our bloggers use our platform — as well as other unpaid group blogs across the web — to connect and help their work be seen by as many people as possible,” Ruiz said. “It’s the same reason people go on TV shows: to promote their views and ideas. HuffPost bloggers can cross-post their work on other sites, including their own. Aside from our group blog, to which thousands of people from around the world contribute, we operate a journalistic enterprise with hundreds of paid staff editors, writers and reporters.”

AOL and Huffington have laid off more than 200 editorial staffers and freelancers over the last month, including some veteran journalists.

Tasini and his lawyers are pursuing a two-pronged legal strategy, with two separate legal claims. The first is “unjust enrichment” under federal law, and the second is a New York state statutory claim for “deceptive business practices.”

The reason for the two claims is that if the judge throws out one claim, the plaintiffs will still have another claim to fall back on, lead attorney Jesse Strauss of New York law firm Kurzon Strauss told Wired.com by phone Tuesday.

It’s important to note that this is not a breach-of-contract case — it’s not clear what contract, if any, Huffington’s 9,000 unpaid bloggers had with the website — or a copyright case.

Rather, by making an “unjust enrichment” argument, Tasini is alleging that Huffington built her business and reaped tens of millions of dollars off the backs of unpaid labor.

(Disclosure: This author worked at AOL prior to joining Wired.com five months ago, and contributed a few music reviews to the Huffington Post several years ago. He was not paid.)

“TheHuffingtonPost.com has been unjustly enriched by engaging in and continuing to engage in the practice of generating enormous profits by luring carefully vetted contributors, with the prospect of ‘exposure’ (which TheHuffingtonPost.com deceptively fails to verify), to provide valuable content at no cost to TheHuffingtonPost.com, while reaping the entirety of the financial gain derived from such content,” according to the lawsuit.

In a statement, Strauss said that he and his partner Jeffrey Kurzon “intend to prove at trial that the content and services provided by the over 9,000 members of the class created substantial value for the Huffington Post, and we hope to establish a strong precedent that in the digital age content producers must be compensated for the value they create.”

Tasini acknowledged that he never signed a contract with Huffington to write for her website, but said that the lawsuit also functions to make a broader point about journalism in the digital age.

“This is about the future of culture and the future of the ability of creators to make a living,” Tasini said. “And if we don’t keep drawing these lines and fighting these fights, we won’t have a class of creators who can actually make a living.”

This is not the first time that Tasini has taken a stand for the labor rights of writers. He was the lead figure in the landmark and successful case, The New York Times v. Tasini, which affirmed freelancers’ rights in the digital age. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of Tasini and his colleagues in 2001.

And this lawsuit is just one manifestation of outrage against Huffington since she sold her website to struggling internet portal AOL for $315 million.

Separately, the Newspaper Guild, whose members number 26,000 writers and editors nationwide, has called for a strike against Huffington, a labor action spearheaded by Los Angeles publisher Bill Lasarow, who runs Visual Arts Source and ArtScene.

“This is about much more than the HuffPo,” Lasarow told Wired.com by phone Tuesday. “This issue has exposed the fact that the writing and journalism fields have undergone vast changes in recent years that have resulted in a crisis. Part of the crisis is that much of what now passes as professional writing is not. The other half is that many who once made a dignified living as respected professionals no longer are able to do so.”

Wired Danger Room

Darpa Explores the Science of Storytelling
By Madhumita Venkataramanan
April 13, 2011 | 7:00 am
Categories: DarpaWatch


Storytelling has always been an art, but do we know anything about its science? Darpa is going out on a limb to explore that very question later this week, in a workshop snappily entitled “Neurobiology of Narratives.”

This project is actually the latest in a series of studies on the neuro-scientific implications of human narratives, which began in February this year. (A final workshop, on “influence-related modeling/simulation/sensor tools,” will happen later.)

Darpa says a discussion of narrative psychology will lead to a “better understanding of the thoughts and feelings of others.”

But another reason the Pentagon would want to spend time upping its sensitivity quotient is because of an ongoing effort on its part to understand the “human terrain” of the battlefields in which they fight. The Army is investing hundreds of millions in building a teams of “cultural counselors” to get into the minds of the locals in Iraq and Afghanistan. The idea is that the better you understand the population, the easier it is to sway them to your side - and win the war.

A little paragraph tucked away at the end of the Darpa project description illuminates this. “This workshop will [connect] our understanding of the neurobiology of narratives with models…salient to security concerns,” it reads.

Translation: How are people incited into political violence/wars? How can security threats be understood and prevented by better comprehending a local culture?

In order to conduct this investigation scientifically, the workshop has five interconnected goals. One involves assessing the impact of narrative on learning and identity. This part of the workshop would discuss how convincing narratives impact identity-related judgments, such as recognizing and trusting the storyteller as part of your cultural or “in” group.

Another involves examining how narratives influence “moral neurobiology.” This implies that the group will consider how a narrative can evoke guilt and innocence, and also how a listener decides whether an action is moral or not, based on the narrative their brain is processing.

A third is the intertwining of the biology of narratives and emotions. This will discuss, in terms of our neuron signals, how listening to a narrative can impact the biology of emotions like empathy, sympathy or outrage and disgust, leading to impulsive reactions.

All this may sound fluffy but there have actually been a number of scientific studies assessing the relationship between the seemingly disparate but deeply related issues of memory, judgment, identity, narrative and neuroscience. Darpa’s workshop is trying to weave these elements together within the context of their work: security matters.

Who ever said stories were for kids?

LA Times

Death toll in mass graves in Mexico reaches 116

As authorities unearth 28 more bodies in Tamaulipas state while investigating bus kidnappings, the federal government sends in more troops to monitor highways.
Officials have arrested 17 people in the case.

By Ken Ellingwood, Los Angeles Times
April 13, 2011
Reporting from Mexico City

Mexican authorities Tuesday reported the discovery of 28 more bodies in a northeastern state, bringing to 116 the number of dead unearthed since officials began investigating mass kidnappings of bus passengers.

As horror mounts over the savagery in Tamaulipas, federal officials said they had sent in more troops and would carry out "constant monitoring" of highways in the violence-ravaged border state.

The government of President Felipe Calderon has poured troops into Tamaulipas after previous episodes of grisly violence. But nothing has quelled bloodletting by drug-trafficking gangs that are essentially in control of big swaths of the state.

Mexico's interior minister, Jose Francisco Blake Mora, said criminal gangs were acting out of "desperation." Officials have arrested 17 people in connection with the bodies.

"Organized crime, in its desperation, resorts to committing extraordinary atrocities that we cannot and should not tolerate," Blake said after meeting with Tamaulipas Gov. Egidio Torre Cantu in Mexico City.

Before Tuesday, a series of mass graves found within a week in rural San Fernando had yielded 88 bodies, amid reports that gunmen were stopping buses and seizing passengers.

Authorities suspect the Zetas gang, which was blamed last year in the kidnapping and killing of 72 migrants from Central and South America in the same area of Mexico after trying to force them to work for the group.

Mexican authorities have not spelled out any motive for the bus attacks on a highway that leads to the U.S. border, 90 miles to the north. The region is traversed by thousands of Mexican and Central American migrants seeking work in the U.S.

Migrants crossing Mexico are often targets of robbery or attempts to extort money from loved ones in the U.S. or back home.

A chilling byproduct of the ruthless drug war in Mexico that has killed more than 34,000 people in more than four years is the disappearance of thousands of people, as The Times reported last month.

Officials had said they believed that most of the unearthed victims were Mexican, but only a few have been identified. The Guatemalan government said at least one of the dead was from Guatemala.

Coroner's officials have taken DNA samples from 72 victims to check if they match those of dozens of people from the central states of Guanajuato and Queretaro who were reported missing after heading north. A U.S. citizen is believed to be among those seized from buses.

Geek Tyrant

Mark Verheiden has been hired to Co-Write THE DARK TOWER TV Series
12 April 2011

User Image


Mark Verheiden has been hired to co-write The Dark Tower NBC TV series along side Akiva Goldsman, who wrote the script for the first film. Verheiden will also serve as an executive producer on the series. Verheiden has written a ton of geek friendly TV series which includes Battlestar Galactica, Heroes, Falling Skies and Smallville. I think he's a good choice in helping bring The Dark Tower to life on the small screen.

Ron Howard is set to direct the series, and Javier Bardem is attached to star in the film. The plan is to start everything off with a feature film, from there they will create a bridge to the second feature with a full season of TV episodes! We will then see the second film hit the big screen, and after the sequel is released we will see another season of The Dark Tower on TV. This season will focus on Deschain as a young gunslinger. The storylines will be taken from the prequel comic book series that King was heavily involved with. Then we will get the third and final film which will pick up with a mature Deshain as he completes his journey.

Please, Please Please don't screw this up. This is going to be a very expensive project to get it any where near right. The bean counters are going to go nuts over the cost of CGI that will be needed to get the background any where near correct! I've read this series three times in it's entirety. It's like reading 'The Stand' four times! The length and the changes in story line make it the perfect venue for TV but 48 minute blocks of TV time aren't going to work. They need 90 minute segments or the audience will loose interest.The introductory movie is a great idea as long as you don't have to wait a year till the series starts or letting the series be preempted by other crap!
Still,
I'm hoping this works because it's one of Kings better novels! That is except for his hurried ending to the story.

Hi Lone,
It does make you nervous. If they get it right it will be amazing. Let's hope they take the time, money and care with the project.
