China’s new bullet train is world’s fastest, smashes record

By Raziman | February, 2012, 16:23 PM PST

“Bigger, better faster” is a perhaps the most apt way to describe China’s ambitious approach to revamping its infrastructure. For instance, the world’s second largest economy boasts the two longest bridges in the world, including the world’s longest seabridge unveiled back in July.
And while the country is already home to the world’s fastest passenger trains, they’re recently shown that they’re still working hard to outdo even themselves. Over the weekend, local train manufacturer CSR Corp successfully completed a trial run of their fastest train yet. China Daily reported that the test train reached a world record-breaking speed of 311 mph. Previously, the title of fastest passenger train was held by the Beijing Shanghai High Speed Railway, which operated at a top speed of 300 kilometers per hour.
The shape of the train is designed to aerodynamically cut through drag like a knife — literally. Stretching six carriages long, the front end is tapered to a fine point, similar to sharp edge of an ancient Chinese sword. It’s powered by a system capable of 22,800 kilowatts and is comprised of lightweight plastic material, magnesium alloy and reinforced with carbon fiber. In comparison, China Railways High-Speed (CRH) trains run at 9,600 kilowatts.
The test run also shows that Chinese officials have remained undaunted by a series of setbacks that bring into question the safety of moving passengers at such high velocity. In July, two bullet trains ran into each other in the Zhejiang province, a tragic accident that left 40 people dead. And an investigation by the New York times revealed that engineers were cutting corners by using low-quality hardening agents to fill in the concrete bases that stabilize the tracks.
So will China put in operation trains that push commuters beyond what is considered safe travel? I’d say very unlikely, considering that the government has begun to backtrack by requiring that bullet trains operate at rate a few notches below what they’re capable of. For instance, trains with a top speed of 350 kh will be lowered to 300 kilometers per hour.
And as for this latest feat, locomotive expert Shen Zhiyun told China Daily that the test run will merely serve as “useful reference for current high-speed railway operations.”

Contact lost with hypersonic glider after launch

LOS ANGELES (AP) — An unmanned hypersonic glider developed for U.S. defense research into super-fast global strike capability was launched atop a rocket early Thursday but contact was lost after the experimental craft began flying on its own, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency said.
The problem occurred during the critical point of transition to aerodynamic flight, DARPA said in a statement that described the mission as an attempt to fly the fastest aircraft ever built.
"More than nine minutes of data was collected before an anomaly caused loss of signal," it said. "Initial indications are that the aircraft impacted the Pacific Ocean along the planned flight path."

The 7:45 a.m. launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base, 130 miles (200 kilometers) northwest of Los Angeles, was the second of two planned flights of a Falcon Hypersonic Technology Vehicle-2. Contact was also lost during the first mission.
Shaped like the tip of a spear, the small craft is part of a U.S. military initiative to develop technology to respond to threats at 20 times the speed of sound or greater, reaching any part of the globe in an hour.
The HTV-2 is designed to be launched to the edge of space, separate from its booster and maneuver through the atmosphere at 13,000 mph (21,000 kph) before intentionally crashing into the ocean.
Defense analyst John Pike of wasn't surprised with the latest failure because the hypersonic test flight program is still in its infancy.
"At this early stage of the game, if they did not experience failures, it's because they're not trying very hard," he said.
Pike said it's possible for engineers to still glean useful information about what worked and what didn't, despite the flight ending prematurely. The key is to analyze what happened in the final five seconds before contact was lost.
DARPA used Twitter to announce the launch and status of the flight.
The agency said the launch of the Minotaur 4 rocket was successful and separation was confirmed via a camera. Communication was then lost.
DARPA's statement quoted Air Force Maj. Chris Schulz, the HTV-2 program manager, on the challenge of flight in "virtually uncharted territory."
"We know how to boost the aircraft to near space," he said. "We know how to insert the aircraft into atmospheric hypersonic flight. We do not yet know how to achieve the desired control during the aerodynamic phase of flight. It's vexing; I'm confident there is a solution. We have to find it."
A team of experts will examine information gathered by more than 20 air, land, sea and space data collection systems, DARPA said.
The HTV-2 is intended to put theory, simulations and wind tunnel experience to the test in real flight conditions at speeds producing temperatures in the thousands of degrees and requiring extremely fast control systems, according to DARPA.
The first HTV-2 was launched on April 22, 2010. It returned nine minutes of data, including 139 seconds of aerodynamic data at speeds between 17 and 22 times the speed of sound, DARPA said.
That craft detected an anomaly, aborted its flight and plunged into the ocean, the agency said.
The military and NASA have also been working on powered aircraft capable of flying at speeds greater than five times the speed of sound, or Mach 5.
In 2004, NASA's unmanned X-43A reached Mach 9.6 on a flight off California. Powered for 10 seconds by a supersonic combustion ramjet, or scramjet, that set a speed record for jet-powered flight.
The X-43A also set the previous record of Mach 6.8 earlier that year.
The unmanned X-51A Waverider, a demonstrator, developed by the Air Force, DARPA, Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne and Boeing, has been tested twice.
Powered by a scramjet, the first X-51A reached about Mach 5 for 140 seconds after being dropped from the wing of a B-52 in May 2010, according to Boeing. Last June, a second craft had problems in a flight off the California coast and the test was terminated. Two more flights are planned for the X-51A program.
The HTV-2 was launched atop a Minotaur 4 rocket built by Orbital Sciences Corp. from decommissioned Peacekeeper intercontinental ballistic missiles. The Minotaur 4 made its debut last year carrying the first HTV-2.
"From what we can tell based on preliminary data, it looked like the rocket did its job," said Orbital spokesman Barry Beneski.
Minotaur 4 is part of the Minotaur rocket family. There have been 22 Minotaur launches since 2000 — a 100 percent success rate. The price of a single flight ranges from $15 million to $30 million depending on the rocket style, according to the company.

Petronas Towers

The Petronas Towers (also known as the Petronas Twin Towers) are skyscrapers and twin towers in Kuala LumpurMalaysia. They were the tallest buildings in the world from 1998 to 2004 until surpassed by Taipei 101, but remain the tallest twin buildings in the world.The building is the landmark of Kuala Lumpur with nearby Kuala Lumpur Tower.

The Petronas Towers were the tallest buildings in the world for six years, until Taipei 101 was completed in 2004. The height of the towers is measured to the top of their structural components such as spires, but do not include antennas. Spires are considered actual integral parts of the architectural design of buildings, to which changes would substantially change the appearance and design of the building, whereas antennas may be added or removed without such consequences. The Petronas Towers still remain the tallest twin buildings in the world.

The Petronas's height compared to some other well-known tall structures
Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower) and the World Trade Center towers were each constructed with 110 occupied floors – 22 more than the 88 floors of the Petronas Towers. Willis Tower’s tallest antenna is 247.4 ft taller than those of the Petronas Towers, however, in accordance to CTBUH regulations and guidelines, the antennas of Willis Tower were not counted as part of its architectural features. The spires on the Petronas Towers are included in the height since they are not antenna masts. Therefore, the Petronas Towers exceed the official height of Willis Tower by 10 m.

Designed by Argentine architects César Pelli and Djay Cerico under the consultancy of Julius Gold and Filipino engineer Domingo Basa, the Petronas Towers were completed in 1998 after a seven year build and became the tallest buildings in the world on the date of completion.[11] They were built on the site of Kuala Lumpur's race track.[12] Because of the depth of the bedrock, the buildings were built on the world's deepest foundations.[13] The 120-meter foundations were built within 12 months by Bachy Soletanche and required massive amounts of concrete.[14] Its engineering designs on structural framework were contributed by Haitian engineer Domo Obiasse and colleagues Aris Battista and Princess D Battista.
The 88-floor towers are constructed largely of reinforced concrete, with a steel and glass facade designed to resemble motifs found in Islamic art, a reflection of Malaysia's Muslim religion.[15] Another Islamic influence on the design is that the cross sectionof the towers is based on a Rub el Hizb, albeit with circular sectors added to meet office space requirements.[16]
Tower 1, the west tower (right in the top-right photograph) was built by a Japanese consortium led by the Hazama Corporation while Tower 2, the east tower (left in the top-right photograph) was built by Samsung C&T and Kukdong Engineering & Construction, both South Korean contractors.[citation needed] The sky bridge contract was completed by Kukdong Engineering & Construction. Tower 2 became the first to reach the world's tallest building at the time.[17]
Due to a lack of steel and the huge cost of importing steel, the towers were constructed on a cheaper radical design of super high-strength reinforced concrete.[18] High-strength concrete is a material familiar to Asian contractors and twice as effective as steel in sway reduction; however, it makes the building twice as heavy on its foundation than a comparable steel building. Supported by 23-by-23 metre concrete cores[19] and an outer ring of widely spaced super columns, the towers use a sophisticated structural system that accommodates its slender profile and provides 560,000 square metres of column-free office space.[20] Below the twin towers is Suria KLCC, a shopping mall, and Dewan Filharmonik Petronas, the home of the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra.
Other buildings have used spires to increase their height but have always been taller overall to the pinnacle when trying to claim the title. In the aftermath of the controversy, the rules governing official titles were partially overhauled, and a number of buildings re-classified structural antenna as architectural details to boost their height rating even though nothing was actually done to the building.

Dialogue Between A Mother And Her Child In Her Womb

Mom : Assalamualaikum my dear. How are you today?
Baby : Waalaikumussalam my dear mom.
I'm feeling good today mom.But there are something growing out from my body!!! (his arms & legs) what are these mom? I don't like it. It keeps getting in my way. I can't move as freely as I used to be before!
Mom : Owh that are your hands and your legs my darling. Alhamdulillah, you are growing as you should.
Baby : Can you make it go away mom? I don't need these hands and legs. They are of no use to me now.
Mom : You must not say that! Be grateful dear. You will need them when you are born. You will need it to walk on this earth. To be Allah's servant. You will be in such a great loss if you don't have them in the future.
End of conversation...
The baby doesn't know the difficulties that he is going to face on the earth if he doesn't have any hands or legs. Because he never used it in the womb. For him, his world is his mom's womb.
Can you see how similar we are and the baby? We have never ever encounter the life after death. We only know the world as the earth that we are living now. Just like an innocence baby. Our amal ma'ruf as our arms and legs in akhirah. We can live without them in this world right? But what about in akhirah? Can we leave without them? And we have been given so many reminders and guidances from Allah through His messenger and The Book, Quran. Who else can we trust if not our GOD, Allah? Think bout it ^_^

Islam Bukan Sains Dan Sains Bukan Islam

Istilah mengIslamkan sains seakan-akan menjadi satu gelombang baru untuk para saintis Islam membuktikan kebenaran Islam. Pengislaman sains ialah satu cara untuk memaparkan ilmu sains sebagai selaras dengan ajaran Islam.
Al-Quran Sebagai Sumber Inspirasi
Gerakan ini menggunakan penemuan-penemuan sains moden dan memadankannya dengan ayat-ayat Al-Quran yang difikirkan boleh diterima akal. Di antaranya ialah penemuan sains berkenaan bumi ini bulat dan memadankannya dengan ayat ke-19 Surah Al-Hijr atau memadankan Surah Ar-Rum ayat ke-48 dengan pemahaman sains berkenaan kitaran hujan.
Terkini, apabila teori letupan agung (Bing Bang) oleh Edwin Hubble mulai diterima oleh masyarakat sains kontemporari menggantikan teori steady-state oleh Fred Hoyle, pada masa yang sama dikeluarkan juga dalil daripada Al-Quran (ayat ke-30, Surah Al-Anbiya) yang telah lama menyokong penemuan saintifik ini.
Para pengusul dalil ini membuat tafsiran berdasarkan dua kata dasar bahasa Arab dalam ayat tersebut, 'ratq' bermaksud 'bercantum' dan fataq yang bermaksud 'memisahkan atau membelahkan'.
Dengan erti kata lain, Islam itu sendiri sudah lama membuktikan teori gelombang agung kerana ianya sudah dinyatakan didalam ayat Al-Quran yang berumur lebih daripada 1400 tahun.
Cara pemikiran ini dirancakkan lagi di dalam buku-buku karya Harun Yahya dari Turki.
Pembaharuan berfikir secara saintifik di dalam membuktikan kebenaran Islam sebenarnya adalah satu trend yang sihat sebagai satu lagi wadah dakwah yang mencerminkan budaya umat Islam berfikir sudah berubah. Sebagai contoh nilai bantu wadah dakwah ini, apabila bukti saintifik yang menunjukkan satu rekahan yang begitu panjang di permukaan bulan sepadan dengan mukjizat Nabi Muhammad SAW yang telah membelah bulan apabila dipinta oleh orang-orang Quraisy telah membuatkan manusia barat berbondong-bondong menjadi 'saudara baru' memeluk Islam.
Pembaca Pasif
Sebenarnya, umat Islam adalah pembaca-pembaca yang pasif walaupun ayat-ayat Al-Quran itu sendiri mengajak mereka untuk berfikir secara kritis dan inovatif.
Sebagai contoh, teori letupan agung telah berada di dalam dada Al-Quran selama lebih daripada 1400 tahun tetapi tiada seorang pun umat Islam yang menyedari akan tujuan sebenar ayat tersebut.
Surah ini sudah dibaca oleh berjuta-juta umat Islam dari dulu sehingga sekarang tetapi tiada seorang pun yang berhenti sejenak dari bacaan mereka dan merenung dengan kritis maksud di sebaliknya. Kemudian dengan sabarnya menunggu waktu malam untuk melihat langit di atasnya untuk memerhati apakah ayat itu cuba menyampaikan sesuatu berkenaan langit dan bumi. Mungkin dulu ianya satu. Selepas membuat pemerhatian dan mendapat keyakinan bahawa langit dan bumi mungkin pada suatu masa dahulu bercantum, mulai mencipta radas-radas dan alat-alatan saintifik untuk membuktikan pemerhatiannya sekaligus membenarkan ayat-ayat-Nya.
Tugasan ini mungkin rumit dan meletihkan tetapi ianya juga salah satu wadah jihad untuk sarjana-sarjana Islam. Sebaliknya, apa yang berlaku adalah hampir kesemua sarjana dan pemikir Islam kontemporari hanya menunggu 'durian runtuh' dan menikmati hasil penat lelah pemikir-pemikir yang mencipta penemuan tersebut.
Jika kita membilang sudah berapa banyak penemuan sains yang sepadan dengan dalil-dalil Al-Quran yang dibaca oleh Muslim setiap hari, mungkin sudah ramai penerima hadiah Nobel terdiri daripada umat Islam dan bukannya orang Yahudi.
Di dalam artikel ini, saya akan cuba memperkenalkan cara untuk memanfaatkan kaedah-kaedah sains untuk menyelesaikan permasalahan umat Islam masa kini. Mungkin ada sarjana-sarjana Islam akan membantah kerana Islam tidak boleh di'sains'kan sepertimana ilmu laduni (ilmu yang diturunkan oleh Allah secara langsung kepada manusia). Dalam erti kata lain, Islam tidak boleh diukur oleh radas-radas dan alat-alat saintifik.
Sebenarnya, Islam itu sendiri mempunyai cabang ilmu yang bersifat mengukur iaitu ilmu Fikah. Ilmu fikah menyerupai ilmu Fizik di dalam sains di mana ianya melibatkan akal kerana sains lebih bersifat akal. Ini bermakna Fiqah adalah cabang ilmu di dalam Islam yang mengkaji suatu permasalahan ummah yang boleh diukur, dikaji dan diulangi.
Menentukan Arah Kiblat
Kebanyakkan saudara baru selalunya merujuk kepada buku oleh Ahmed Galwash yang menyatakan untuk mencari arah kiblat yang betul adalah dengan mengunakan peta Mercator, kemudian letakkan satu hujung pembaris ke arah si pencari berdiri dan satu hujung pembaris lagi pada arah Mekah, buat satu garisan menggunakan pen dan itulah arah kiblat.
Ramai juga muslim menggunakan konsep bulatan agung (Great Circle concept) yang selalunya digunakan dalam penerbangan. Jarak bulatan agung ditakrifkan sebagai jarak terpendek di antara dua titik pada permukaan satu sfera. Kaedah pencarian arah kiblat yang tepat menggunakan konsep bulatan agung telah dicipta oleh Fred Sawyer III, seorang ahli matematik.
Satu kaedah bergeometri juga diperkenalkan dengan menggunakan ukuran darjah satu sudut di antara utara dan kedudukan seseorang kearah Kaabah. Sudut itu dipanggil azimuth, daripada perkataan Arab samt yang bermakna arah.
Walaubagaimanapun, permasalahan arah kiblat kebanyakkan diselesaikan oleh mereka yang dilahirkan Muslim lebih bersifat santai dan boleh dibahagikan kepada dua kategori; mengikut cara tradisi dan menggunakan kaedah bermatematik.
Kompas kiblat sebenarnya adalah evolusi daripada kaedah bermatematik.
Kaedah tradisi termasuklah, "Jika anda boleh melihat Kaabah, maka itulah arah kiblat' atau 'Jika anda berada di Mekah, ikut arah di mana penduduk asal itu menghadap'.
Tetapi masalah menjadi semakin rumit apabila seseorang Muslim itu tidak tinggal di Mekah. Maka pelbagai petua dicipta seperti mengikut arah angin tertentu atau teruskan solat tanpa mengetahui arah kiblat kerana empat dinding Kaabah mengala ke semua arah.
Kemudian kaedah bermatematik dicipta, atau kuasi-matematik. Secara sejarahnya, masalah paling utama dalam menggunakan kaedah bermatematik adalah tiada ilmuwan boleh menentukan longitude sesuatu tempat secara tepat. Maka, kaedah bermatematik adalah paling berkesan tetapi dilemahkan dengan fakor geografi. Oleh kerana itu, walaupun kaedah bermatematik lebih maju dan tepat, tetapi keputusannya  -- mengikut penemuan terkini – tersasar.
Ada usaha fuqaha beraliran sekular menggunakan pengiraan trigonometri. Ianya dikira menggunakan lokasi koordinat seorang muslim, koordinat Kaabah (atau Mekah), dan satu formula trigonometri bersfera mudah untuk menentukan bulatan agung yang di antaranya menggunakan kaedah trigonometri seperti sine dan cosines dan kadangkala menggunakan sektor kuadran tangents dan cotangents.
Perpecahan Umat Islam
Sepanjang sejarah Islam, ahli-ahli astronomi Islam telah menghabiskan masa mereka untuk menentukan arah kiblat dan mencipta alat-alat seperti astrolabe, di mana kemudiannya menjadi alat yang terpenting untuk pelayaran dan penjelajahan. Perlu diingati, kiblat pertama umat Islam sebenarnya bukan Kaabah tetapi Jeruselam dan umat terdahulu berkongsi arah dengan orang Yahudi dan kemudiannya arah kiblat telah berubah selama-lamanya ke Kaabah oleh Nabi Muhammad SAW. 
Perubahan ini memberi identiti sendiri kepada umat Islam supaya berbeza daripada orang Kristian dan orang Yahudi. Oleh itu, kiblat menjadi urat nadi umat Islam.
Persoalan arah kiblat menjadi mudah di negara di mana penduduknya adalah majoriti Islam kerana telah dijawab beratus tahun dahulu oleh nenek moyang mereka yang juga beragama Islam. Tetapi oleh kerana proses mobiliti dan penyebaran populasi yang dibawa oleh sejarah pengkolonian, pembaharuan oleh era globasisi dan penghijrahan umat Islam secara besar-besaran telah mencipta satu keperluan untuk menentukan arah kiblat yang lebih tepat di negara-negara yang mempunyai Islam minoriti seperi Amerika, Australia dan New Zealand.
Contohnya,kebanyakkan masjid-masjid pendatang di Detroit, Amerika, ketika dulu menghadap Timur atau tenggara. Kemudiannya pada tahun 1978 seorang Fuqaha Islam, S. Kamal Abdali, telah mencadangkan bahawa arah kiblat bagi Amerika Utara adalah di Timur Laut dan cadangan ini diterimapakai di Amerika Utara sehingga kini.
Malangnya, permasalahan arah kiblat menjadi semakin rumit apabila melibatkan perbezaan mazhab dan pada akhirnya umat Islam berpecah-belah.
Lebih memalukan, di dalam era matematik, geografi dan komputer ketika sains pelayaran, pengiraan dan Cartography mencapai kemuncaknya, dan dengan penciptaan teknologi terkini, orang bukan Islam tidak menemui masalah di dalam mencari arah untuk belayar sehingga ke kutub utara dan mengembara hingga ke bulan, walhal umat Islam masih tidak mempunyai persetujuan di dalam isu yang kecil ini.
Diceritakan cara menentukan arah kiblat bagi masjid baru di Tierra del Fuego adalah dengan memanggil seorang Fuqaha dari Algeria dan mendengar pendapatnya dan apabila masjid itu siap dibina seorang lagi Fuqaha ternama Islam melawat masjid tersebut telah memberi pendapat yang berbeza berkenaan arah kiblat.
Fatwa secara subjektif ini telah membuatkan Islam amat sukar diterima di benua Amerika. Kaedah memberi fatwa secara subjektif ini juga telah mencipta jurang baru sesama umat Islam dan akhirnya mengakibatkan perpecahan. Sewajarnya, kaedah memberi fatwa yang bertunjangkan ijtihad bersandarkan dengan fakta yang lebih bersifat saintifik supaya mudah diterima akal.
Projek Satu Arah Kiblat
Isu ini sebolehnya tidak boleh dipandang enteng oleh umat Islam terutamanya sarjana-sarjana Islam. Oleh itu, satu projek yang dinamakaan 'Satu arah kiblat' dicipta oleh saya dengan khidmat nasihat oleh seorang ulama terkenal UK telah dilancarkan.
Tujuan utama projek ini adalah untuk menentukan arah kiblat secara saintifik demi menyatukan umat Islam di samping memberi satu kaedah baru kepada dunia Fikah berkenaan ijtihad.
Seperti yang telah dibincangkan, terdapat dua cara menentukan arah kiblat iaitu (1) cara tradisi dan (2) kaedah bermatematik, tetapi kini kami memperkenalkan kaedah ketiga iaitu secara kaedah saintifik. Kaedah ketiga ini amat mudah iaitu dengan memerhatikan arah piring satelit yang boleh didapati di mana-mana sahaja.
Sebagai bukti, jika anda berada di Malaysia, cuba perhatikan arah piring satelit Astro dan arah mana-mana masjid yang berdekatan. Sepanjang pemerhatian saya, hampir kesemua piring satelit Astro menghadap ke arah kiblat dengan tepat. Ketepatan arah kiblat menggunakan arah piring satelit adalah amat tepat dan terbukti apabila diukur ketepatannya dengan kompas kiblat.
Untuk memastikan bahawa kaedah ini boleh diterima pakai di seluruh dunia, kami akan mengumpul data arah piring satelit di segenap benua. Dengan data yang akan dikumpul, maka kesimpulan dapat dibuat secara statistik sama ada kedudukan piring satelit di seluruh dunia kesemuanya menghadap Kaabah.
Jika kesimpulan berstatistik mendapati kesemua piring satelit di seluruh dunia menghadap Kaabah maka satu alat baru dapat dicipta dengan memahami lebih lanjut fenomena ini dan sekaligus meredakan perselisihan di antara umat Islam masa kini.
Seperti dinyatakan, kompas kiblat datangnya daripada evolusi kaedah bermatematik yang bergantung kepada ketepatan koordinat sesuatu lokasi dan seperti yang dibincangkan masih lagi diragui ketepatannya.
Oleh kerana itu, proses membina masjid baru di benua Amerika masih lagi menggunakan kaedah tradisi dengan pedoman seorang Fuqaha yang selalunya bersifat subjektif.
Di dalam kesempatan ini, saya ingin memohon kerjasama semua Muslimin dan Muslimat supaya dapat berganding bahu untuk membantu saya melaksanakan projek ini. Kami dalam peringkat membina laman web sebagai alat untuk pengumpulan data.
Tujuan pembinaan laman web ini adalah untuk meminta kerjasama individu Muslim memberi arah mana-mana piring satelit yang mereka jumpai dengan pengesahan daripada arah masjid yang berdekatan dan juga daripada kompas kiblat.
Walaupun kompas kiblat kurang tepat tetapi penggunaannya masih lagi boleh diterima pakai pada peringkat pengumpulan data. Semoga projek ini dapat menjadi satu nafas baru kepada penyatuan umat Islam di seluruh dunia.
