No, it may take a week. Download from Jupiter is not fast, due to power limits.

Also the money for redoubling the rails in the latest train tragedy was there but was not spent. This depends on Italy's greatest handicap, its bureaucracy, which is still in Borbonic mood.

If it was sighted by ESO in Chile it must be visible in the Southern Hemisphere. So maybe Parkes or another Australian radio telescope could receive any signal.

A school was restructured in 2012 and should have been up to modern standards, yet it crashed. Prof Boschi of the Italian Geophysical Institute says that at Norcia, which was rebuilt after a quake in 1979, no building crashed. Much depends on the quality of work done. Many rebuilding operations are assigned to the lowest bidder, and you can see the results. Many older building and churches survived the shocks, they have done this for centuries, The first quake in Amatrice was in 1609, two others followed.

We don't need broadband, which is useful only for soccer games and porn. We need secure homes, schools and hospitals. Will the Gov understand this?

Many animals seem to foresee a quake with unusual behavior. Unfortunately, they are unable to communicate with us.
They might be able to hear very low frequency waves, which we don't perceive, caused by fracturing of rocks.

It will take much more money to rebuild what was destroyed. Unfortunately, no money is spent in building anti earthquakes homes, school and hospitals. A 6 magnitude quake would do little damage in Japan or California, and kill very few people.Dead are more than 60 and the count is rising.

Together with a friend I started a domain in 1996, which was desysoft.it. We leased a 64k line from Telecomitalia and paid a huge sum for it. The host was a Pentium running Solaris, which also cost a lot of money. Not being Google, we had to shut it down. I went home and started Linux on a PII Deschutes at 400 MHz. That was my first BOINC client, running SETI classic.

Magnitude 6.2 at Norcia, other shocks in central Italy. 22 dead so far, but this is a partial number. Many villages destroyed, with rescue teams searching survivors. All TV stations broadcast live the rescue efforts.

Accumuli, Amatrice and Arquata del Tronto partially destroyed.Amatrice gives its name to a spaghetti plate.

I remember using Gopher in 1992 on my UNIX host, which was a RISC machine built by MIPS and branded BULL.The Gopher server at Pisa University had a directory named "top models" in which were photos of top models. They had to close it, too many visitors. I stated Netscape on Solaris OS only in 1996, after retiring.

Le Olimpiadi sono finite, e' ricominciato il campionato di calcio, si sta svolgendo la Vuelta. Ma Peter Sagan ha forato e non ha vinto la Mountain Bike delle Olimpiadi.Grandissimo Usain Bolt e tutta la Jamaica. L'Italia e' al decimo posto nel medagliere, con 8 medaglie d'oro, `12 d'argento e 8 di bronzo. Memorabili i 1500 metri stile libero vinti da Gregorio Paltrinieri.

As a side comment, we at vLHC@home have simulated 3 trillion events (particle collisions) since the project started in 2010.

Jeff Steinhauer of the Technion University of Haifa, Israel, says that he has proven the existence of Hawking radiation emanating from a black hole with acoustic waves on a Bose-Einstein condensate at a temperature close to absolute zero. But there are doubts from other scientists. However his experiment does not cost much and is contained in one room only, so his efforts are worth of praise.

On the September issue of CERN Courier, which is already online, there is finally a good news: the SESAME synchrotron radiation source in Jordan is inviting research proposals both in physics and biology.So, even in the troubled Middle East, some good can be done.
Tullio
SESAME has 2 beamlines, one in infrared and one in X rays.
