Japan satellite blasts into space to deliver artificial meteorsA rocket carrying a satellite on a mission to deliver the world's first artificial meteor shower blasted into space on Friday, Japanese scientists said. A start-up based in Tokyo developed the micro-satellite for the celestial show over Hiroshima early next year as the initial experiment for what it calls a "shooting stars on demand" service. The satellite is to release tiny balls that glow brightly as they hurtle through the atmosphere, simulating a meteor shower.

Japanese company sends satellite into space to deliver artificial meteor showerA rocket carrying a satellite on a mission to deliver the world’s first artificial meteor shower blasted into space on Friday, Japanese scientists said. A start-up based in Tokyo developed the micro-satellite for the celestial show over Hiroshima early next year as the initial experiment for what it calls a "shooting stars on demand" service. The satellite is to release tiny balls that glow brightly as they hurtle through the atmosphere, simulating a meteor shower. It hitched a ride on the small-size Epsilon-4 rocket that was launched from the Uchinoura space centre by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) on Friday morning. The rocket is carrying a total of seven ultra-small satellites that will demonstrate various "innovative" technologies, said JAXA spokesman Nobuyoshi Fujimoto. Lena Okajima, chief executive of Japanese space entertainment company ALE, speaks to the media after the Epsilon-4 rocket alunch in Kimotsuki Town Credit:  JIJI PRESS/AFP By around noon on Friday, the first of the seven satellites had been successfully sent into orbit, he added, with JAXA officials waiting for signals to confirm the fate of the other six. The company behind the artificial meteor shower plan, ALE Co. Ltd, plans to deliver its first out-of-this-world show over Hiroshima in the spring of 2020. The satellite launched Friday carries 400 tiny balls whose chemical formula is a closely-guarded secret. That should be enough for 20-30 events, as one shower will involve up to 20 stars, according to the company. ALE’s satellite, released500 kilometres (310 miles) above the Earth, will gradually descend to 400 kilometres over the coming year as it orbits the Earth. The company plans to launch a second satellite on a private-sector rocket in mid-2019. ALE says it is targeting "the whole world" with its products and plans to build a stockpile of shooting stars in space that can be delivered across the world. When its two satellites are in orbit, they can be used separately or in tandem, and will be programmed to eject the balls at the right location, speed and direction to put on a show for viewers on the ground. Tinkering with the ingredients in the balls should mean that it is possible to change the colours they glow, offering the possibility of a multi-coloured flotilla of shooting stars. Each star is expected to shine for several seconds before being completely burned up – well before they fall low enough to pose any danger to anything on Earth. They would glow brightly enough to be seen even over the light-polluted metropolis of Tokyo, ALE says. If all goes well, and the skies are clear, the 2020 event could be visible to millions of people, it says. ALE chief executive Lena Okajima has said her company chose Hiroshima for its first display because of its good weather, landscape and cultural assets. The western Japan city rose from the ashes after the 1945 US atomic bombing and faces the Seto Inland sea where the floating gate of Itsukushima Shrine is. ALE is working in collaboration with scientists and engineers at Japanese universities as well as local government officials and corporate sponsors. It has not disclosed the price for an artificial meteor shower.

U.S. State Department says may ask Trump to scrap another Obama climate orderSuch a move would deepen the Trump administration's already broad rejection of former President Barack Obama's policies on global warming, which Trump has repeatedly suggested is not as serious as scientists claim. In the 2014 executive order, Obama directed the State Department and other agencies to factor climate resilience into development programs to help vulnerable populations around the world protect themselves from the effects of droughts, floods, and storms exacerbated by climate change. The State Department said in the General Accountability Office, or GAO, report published Thursday that its foreign assistance and budget bureaus "will begin working with stakeholders to consider whether to recommend that the Secretary (Mike Pompeo) ask the President to rescind" the order.

Hitachi Can't Cut Its Nuclear Bonds Soon EnoughThe Japanese conglomerate finally made a decision to suspend construction of its once-ambitious nuclear power station on the U.K.’s Welsh coast, after months of uncertainty. It isn’t clear whether Hitachi will fully exit the Wylfa project or just leave it offline. Getting rid of it is probably the best way forward, much as Toshiba Corp. found in the case of Westinghouse Electric Co., the bankrupt U.S. nuclear unit that was sold last year. There are no obvious ways to fix Hitachi’s U.K. nuclear business without sinking in more cash, which would mean taking on more debt and risk.

Chinese Tech Hiring Ads Dive as Trade Tensions, Slowdown BiteThe number of IT and internet positions advertised nationwide fell by 20 percent in the December quarter compared with a year earlier, according to a report from Renmin University and the country’s largest jobs website, Zhaopin Ltd. The drop was most pronounced in the internet and online gaming sectors, where ads slid 23 percent and 30 percent, respectively. Last year marked the first time China’s giant IT and internet sector -- led by Tencent Holdings Ltd. and Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. -- has cut back on job ads since 2015, the study showed.

The Promise of 5G Is the Problem With Huawei in Eyes of CriticsThe vulnerability helps explain the rising tension between the U.S. and Huawei Technologies Co., China’s largest technology company. Huawei is pushing for a global leadership role in 5G, but American officials suspect that would help Beijing spy on Western governments and companies. “Huawei’s significant presence in 5G creates a new vector for possible cyber-espionage and malware,” MichaelWessel, a commissioner on the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission that advises Congress, said in an interview.
