Astronomers at the European Southern Observatory in the Atacama desert, Chile, have discovered what could be a planet in one of Earth’s closest star systems, Alpha Centauri A.

This “planet candidate”, as described by scientists as it could very well be a strip of dust, a foreign asteroid, or even a glitch in the system, was detected from the analysis of 100s of hours of data received via the Very Large Telescope (VLT) in May and June 2019.

Alpha Centauri A

Distanced at 4.37 light-years (1.34 parsecs) from the Earth’s solar system, the Alpha Centauri is considered the closest star system to our…

On the 23rd of July, 2020, at exactly 12:41 pm, the Tianwen-1 spacecraft lifted off the Wenchang Satellite Launch Centre in Hainan, China, on board a March 5 rocket.

On the 10th of February, 2021, the spacecraft successfully moved into the Red planet’s orbit. This is the first step in the three-step mission of Tianwen-1 whose mission is to orbit, land and deploy a rover on Mars.

The spacecraft initiated a 15-minute burn of thrusters which slowed it down just enough to be pulled into the planet’s gravity.

Tianwen-1 is expected to remain in orbit until May…

“I truly want us to live in a world 50 or 100 years from now where people are jumping in their rockets like the Jetsons and there are families bouncing around on the moon with their kid in a spacesuit,” Jared Isaacman told The Associated Press news agency following the announcement by Space X on its goal to launch an all-civilian trip to Mars later this year.

Owned by Elon Musk, Space X is an aerospace manufacturer and space transportation services company established in 2002.

Has been several months since the world suffer one of the most precise and dedicated **zero day** exploits of our history.
(For those who does not know what a zero day is go [here]), but long story short, we were hit by something we did not know that existed, and had no defense against it until was too late, and… made every infrastructure and protocol fail, every security dude worse nightmare)

Literally this little virus spread across our lives and disrupt every industry, causing major collapses across the world, across culture, governments and industries.

As humans, we failed to defend…

So security, if we could agree, it’s a catch up game…

I have more than 15 years of security experience and every single time I felt that I was running behind, behind developers, business goals, release times, policy, and many many more reasons.

Trying to reason a deadline or QA, Threat modeling constantly and getting into the CD/CI in the development environment is always a struggle.

Either you have an backlog of the size of Iguazu falls, and can barely catch up, and let’s face it, developers are extremely clever to back channel to get faster their feature request from an extremely ever hungrier business development.

And security can wait right…
