World War II bombings weakened upper atmosphere at edge of space

The Earth's electrified upper atmosphere (the ionosphere) experiences a lot of natural variation, changing with the days and from season to season. The ionosphere can also be affected by certain big events, including solar flares, volcanic eruptions, lightning—and the massive bombs dropped on Germany during World War II. Those bombings produced shockwaves strong enough to weaken the ionosphere right near the edge of space.

That's the conclusion of a new study by University of Reading researchers, just published in the journal Annales Geophysicae. More than a historic curiosity, the finding matters because ionospheric disturbances can disrupt key communications technology, including GPS systems, radio telescopes, and radio communications.

The air raids conducted by both the Germans and Allied forces in the 1940s were designed to take out critical industrial and political infrastructure—and if civilians happened to be in the line of fire, so be it. (The Allied bombing of Hamburg in 1943 reportedly left 45,000 dead.) Intensifying the fear of dying among residents was as key to the strategy as the physical destruction wrought by the massive bombs dropped. The largest bombs, weighing as much as 10 tons, were powerful enough to blow the roofs off buildings, sending intense shockwaves not just through the streets but into the skies above.

Xbox One’s mouse-and-keyboard era will begin in “coming weeks,” Microsoft says

Ars Technica - 14 hours 16 min ago

Enlarge / A future Xbox One controller.

Here at Ars, we're old enough to remember when Microsoft first claimed that full support for keyboard/mouse controls on Xbox One was "months away." (That was over 27 months ago, for those still keeping track.)

In any case, Microsoft has announced via a Tuesday blog post that the long-promised mouse and keyboard support will finally be rolling out for Xbox Insider members "in the coming weeks." That could mean the feature is 27 weeks away, we suppose, but Microsoft also promises more information during a November 10 presentation of its Inside Xbox video series, less than seven weeks away.

Microsoft's description of the features bears a striking resemblance to the details shared in a recent developer presentation which leaked back in June. That includes a partnership with Razer to promote the feature and the fact that mouse and keyboard support on Xbox One will remain very much optional for developers.
