ESP8266 GMail sender

ESP8266 GMail sender | Actual IT | Scoop.it
Hello and welcome to my first Instructable. I will show you how to send emails from any ESP8266 wifi module using Gmail server.This instructable relies on Arduino core for ESP8266 WiFi chip, which makes a self-contained microcontroller from it (no need of AT commands and master devices). You can connect sensors and get notified by email about changes.Before we begin Required hardware: Any ESP8266 (I'm using ESP8266-07 ebay link). In my case USB UART Board(I'm using FT232RL FTDI Serials Adapter Module ebay). Not needed if your board has usb port. Some jumper cables. WIFI router of course.List may be incomplete. Required software: Arduino Software Arduino core for ESP8266 WiFi chip Sketch with project and test code (ESP8266_Gmail_Sender.zip).

‘Dark twin’ galaxy discovered that contains 99.9% dark matter

‘Dark twin’ galaxy discovered that contains 99.9% dark matter | Actual IT | Scoop.it

Welcome to the dark side of the universe. In a direct contrast with the beautifully bright Milky Way galaxy, a "dark twin" called Dragonfly 44 has been discovered 300 million light-years away in the Coma constellation, according to a new study.

 

But don’t cue “Star Wars’ ” Imperial March theme music or Darth Vader breathing just yet (even if the closeup image looks like a slightly creepy emoji). Although it’s massive and mysterious, Dragonfly 44 is really just misunderstood.

 

Dragonfly 44 went unnoticed until last year because, when regarding the darkness of space, this galaxy resembles a virtually indistinguishable blob. But by looking at it with some of the world’s most powerful telescopes, including the Dragonfly telescope array designed and built by study authors Pieter van Dokkum and Roberto Abraham, researchers realized something else. It is named for the telescope that found it.

 

Dragonfly 44 is an incredibly large but diffuse and dim galaxy. Encircling its core is a halo made up of clusters of stars, much like what we see in the Milky Way. But this galaxy is only 0.1% stars. The Milky Way has more than a hundred times that. The researchers knew that something had to be holding those few stars in place.

 

“We knew as soon as we discovered the galaxy that it would be so tenuous if it was just made up of stars and no dark matter, that it would quickly disrupt and disappear,” said van Dokkum, lead study author and Yale University astronomer.

 

A huge amount of gravity was working to hold those stars in place, and once researchers used star velocity to measure how much mass the galaxy contained, they realized that the other 99.9% is dark matter.

 

To put this in perspective, Dragonfly 44 is comparable in size to the Milky Way, which is 100,000 light-years wide. Mostly it is just unseen because it is cloaked in darkness.

 

“It’s very exciting because we thought we had sort of figured out what the relationship is between galaxies and dark matter,” van Dokkum said. “This discovery turns that on its head. Now, you can have a hundred times fewer stars in the galaxy with the same amount of dark matter as the Milky Way. That was entirely unexpected, and that means that there is something missing in our description of galaxy formations, and there are physics that we don’t yet understand in that process.”

 

This newly observed galaxy could hold the secrets to understanding dark matter, the hypothesized ingredient that makes up 90% of the universe. Given the fact that we know next to nothing about it, this find could open the door to our discovery and understanding of the mysterious building block.
