False news from space … or science? Who has news write to this blog

 

For some decades the models with which science describes the universe have experienced a real revolution with respect to the intuitive way of knowing the world, which was based from ancient times on the undisputed platform constituted by our sensory perception. Over the centuries a powerful current of thought, which has sensed the fallacy of the senses in knowing the nature of reality, has gradually grown between alternating events, even if it has remained hidden from the peoples for long historical periods and at the beginning of the twentieth century gave rise to a real revolution of our way of knowing what we call the universe. In recent decades, concepts considered to be untouchable for centuries have been confronted and reshaped in fundamental science. It was the year 1994 when scientific journals from all over the world published the most amazing discovery of all time in the field of physics: the possibility of moving a body and consequently information, between two distant points at will, had been officially proven. in an arbitrarily short time. This meant that you could overcome the speed of light with its fantastic 300,000 kilometers per second. The most certain barrier of all physics, which had been the sure point to evaluate the coherence of any theory, had at that precise moment yielded. Of course, everyone will think that television and the press have highlighted the great scientific achievement with striking filming services and impressive articles of journalism. And yet none of this happened. The news passed practically quietly and general information was concerned to talk about the usual facts more or less irrelevant as usual, and in fact today most people are not aware of this important achievement of human thought.

Da alcuni decenni i modelli con cui la scienza descrive l’universo hanno conosciuto una reale rivoluzione rispetto al modo intuitivo di conoscere il mondo, che era basato fin dai tempi antichi sulla indiscussa piattaforma costituita dalla nostra percezione sensoriale. Nel corso dei secoli una potente corrente di pensiero, che ha intuito la fallacia dei sensi nel conoscere la natura della realtà, è via via cresciuta tra alterne vicende, anche se è rimasta celata ai popoli per lunghi periodi storici e all’inizio del XX Secolo ha dato origine a una vera rivoluzione del nostro modo di conoscere ciò che chiamiamo universo. Nei decenni più recenti sono poi stati affrontati e riplasmati nella scienza fondamentale concetti ritenuti intoccabili per secoli. Correva l’anno 1994 quando le riviste scientifiche di tutto il mondo pubblicavano la più strabiliante scoperta di tutti i tempi nel campo della fisica: era stata ufficialmente provata la possibilità di spostare un corpo e conseguentemente l’informazione, tra due punti distanti a piacere, in un tempo arbitrariamente breve. Ciò voleva dire che si poteva superare la velocità della luce con i suoi fantastici 300.000 chilometri al secondo. La barriera più certa di tutta la fisica, che aveva costituito il punto certo per valutare la coerenza di qualsiasi teoria, aveva in quel preciso momento ceduto. Naturalmente ognuno penserà che la televisione e la stampa abbiano evidenziato la grande conquista scientifica con suggestivi servizi filmati e con imponenti articoli giornalistici. E invece non accadde nulla di tutto questo. La notizia passò praticamente in sordina e l’informazione generalista si preoccupò di parlottare come sempre dei soliti fatti più o meno irrilevanti, e infatti tutt’oggi la maggioranza delle persone non è assolutamente a conoscenza di questa importante conquista del pensiero umano.

Balilla very British

Great cars: The Fiat 508S Sports Balilla

by Motor sport magazine

In it’s day the little sports version of the Fiat 508S Balilla was a much sought after car, which left a very profound mark on the sporting scene in Europe and, most notably, in this country. Yet it was a development of the ordinary Fiat Balilla, which did not pretend to be anything more than useful family transport. With, however, the proviso that in the just-pre-WW2 era most Continental small saloons possessed better handling and other aspects of control than their rather more soggy and less inspired British counterparts. Starting at the unquestioned summit, with the splendid Lancia Aprilia, other foreigners, like the Fiat 500 Topolino (compare with the Austin Ruby), two-stroke DKW, and the 1100cc Fiat Balilla pillarless saloon, I regard as making this all too clearly evident.

These good cornering and steering characteristics in sporting versions of modest economy cars from Italy, France and Germany were apparent in the very attractive sports Fiat Balilla, as discerning British trials, rally and racing amateurs were quick to realise.

They soon saw that they were in for something rather special, in the class of low-priced, competition cars of modest engine size. At this time, in the 1930s, there was a prolific amount going on to attract the sporting motorist – long distance road rallies, mud-trials, the long-haul MCC historic trials, and racing for amateurs and the more experienced at Brooklands and elsewhere. For these pursuits the smart little sports Fiat was significantly useful…

DESTRIERO, the record

It/Eng.version

The DESTRIERO record has just turned twenty-five.

At dawn on 9 August 1992, this ship, which carried the banner of the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, conquered the Atlantic crossing record, covering 3,106 nautical miles without refueling on the Atlantic Ocean, from New York to the Bishop Rock lighthouse in the Isles of Scilly in England, using 58 hours, 34 minutes and 50 seconds, at an average of 53.09 knots, tearing apart the previous record of the English Hoverspeed catamaran of 3 days, 7 hours and 54 minutes, ie with an average of “only” 36 , 96 knots.

Il record del DESTRIERO ha da poco compiuto venticinque anni.

All’alba del 9 agosto 1992, questa nave, che portava il vessillo dello Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, conquistò il record di traversata atlantica, percorrendo 3.106 miglia nautiche senza rifornimento sull’Oceano Atlantico, da New York al faro di Bishop Rock nelle Isole Scilly in Inghilterra, impiegando 58 ore, 34 minuti e 50 secondi, alla media di 53,09 nodi, facendo a pezzi il precedente record del catamarano inglese Hoverspeed di 3 giorni, 7 ore e 54 minuti, ovvero con una  media di “soli” 36,96 nodi.

 

Il Destriero venne costruito da Fincantieri tra il 1990 ed il 1991 nei cantieri di Muggiano e Riva Trigoso, in soli 270 giorni. Lo scafo è stato varato il 28 marzo 1991 presso i cantieri Fincantieri di Muggiano, La Spezia, alla presenza di rappresentanze della marineria civile e militare. La nave, costruita interamente in alluminio, aveva una lunghezza di 67,7 metri, con carena dislocante a prua e planante a poppa, su progetto dello studio navale Donald L. Blount and Associated, era equipaggiato con tre Turbine a gas General Electric LM1600 – MTU, capaci di sviluppare complessivamente 51.675 hp / 38.535 kW (continui) e collegati a tre idrogetti KaMeWa model 125 tramite riduttori Renk-Tacke.

Destriero Nastro Azzurro

The Destriero was built by Fincantieri between 1990 and 1991 in the Muggiano and Riva Trigoso shipyards, in just 270 days. The hull was launched on March 28th 1991 at the Fincantieri shipyards in Muggiano, La Spezia, in the presence of representatives of the civil and military navy. The ship, built entirely of aluminum, had a length of 67.7 meters, with a displacement hull in the bow and a planing aft, designed by the naval firm Donald L. Blount and Associated, it was equipped with three General Electric LM1600 gas turbines – MTU, capable of developing a total of 51,675 hp / 38,535 kW (continuous) and connected to three KaMeWa model 125 hydro-jets by Renk-Tacke gearboxes.
