Stargazing enthusiasts had to turn to astronomy books and home telescopes to observe planets and stars and determine constellations. Today, they have mobile apps for that. Stellarium Mobile Plus, one of the most versatile planetarium apps, utilises augmented reality combined with the camera of the mobile device to show people exactly where the stars are. Users can easily point their device camera towards the sky and locate the position of constellations and stars. This app can be used to discover more educational information about a specific celestial body or to plan ahead for their stargazing activities.

Stellarium Mobile Plus is a planetarium application that highlights what people see when they look up at the stars. The app allows users to determine satellites, comets, planets, stars, constellations, and other deep sky objects in real-time. A well-structured and minimalist user interface makes it easy to navigate and quick to learn for both kids and adults who love to discover the night sky.

Says Guillaume Chereau, Co-Founder of Noctua Software Ltd.: “We are actively working on porting our astronomical app on a wide array of devices such as IoT devices, web browsers, and all mobile devices. A French version and other language adaptations will also be available soon.”

The company takes pride in its main product to be one of the leading Android and iOS planetarium simulation apps on the market. Recently, they released stellarium-web.org – a web browser version of the Stellarium App. Stellarium Mobile Plus is now available for Android and iOS. Interested users can download it today on Google Play Store and in Apple Store.

Apr 8, 2020

WASHINGTON — Russia interfered in the 2016 election and may try to sway next year's vote as well. But it's not the only nation with an eye on U.S. politics. American officials sounding the alarm about foreign efforts to disrupt the 2020 election include multiple countries in that warning. Concerns abound not only about possible hacking of campaigns, but also about the spread of disinformation on social media and potential efforts to breach voting databases and even alter votes. The anxiety goes beyond the possibility that U.S. adversaries could directly affect election results: The mere hint of foreign meddling could...

3 get Nobel prize for showing how cells sense low oxygen

Apr 8, 2020

NEW YORK — Two Americans and a British scientist won a Nobel Prize on Monday for discovering details of how the body's cells sense and react to low oxygen levels, providing a foothold for developing new treatments for anemia, cancer and other diseases. Drs. William G. Kaelin Jr. of Harvard University, Gregg L. Semenza of Johns Hopkins University and Peter J. Ratcliffe at the Francis Crick Institute in Britain and Oxford University won the prize for advances in physiology or medicine.

Where have the wild birds gone? 3 billion fewer than 1970

Apr 8, 2020

WASHINGTON — A comprehensive study shows there are nearly 3 billion fewer wild birds in North America than in 1970. The new study finds that the bird population in the United States and Canada was probably around 10.1 billion nearly half a century ago and has dropped 29% to about 7.2 billion birds. Study lead author Kenneth Rosenberg, a Cornell University conservation scientist, says the thinning of the flocks is happening before our eyes but is so slow we don't often notice. Rosenberg and colleagues projected population data using weather radar, which captures flocks of migrating birds, 13 different bird...

No Deal: Auto workers strike against GM in contract dispute

Apr 8, 2020

DETROIT — More than 49,000 members of the United Auto Workers walked off General Motors factory floors or set up picket lines early Monday as contract talks with the company deteriorated into a strike. Workers shut down 33 manufacturing plants in nine states across the U.S., as well as 22 parts distribution warehouses. It wasn't clear how long the walkout would last, with the union saying GM has budged little in months of talks while GM said it made substantial offers including higher wages and factory investments. It's the first national strike by the union since a two-day walkout in...

Union votes to strike at General Motors' US plants

Apr 8, 2020

DETROIT — The United Auto Workers union announced Sunday that its roughly 49,000 workers at General Motors plants in the U.S. would go on strike just before midnight because contentious talks on a new contract had broken down. About 200 plant-level union leaders voted unanimously in favor of a walkout during a meeting Sunday morning in Detroit. Union leaders said the sides were still far apart on several major issues and they apparently weren't swayed by a GM offer to make new products at or near two of the four plants it had been planning to close, according to someone...
