  • The Mobile Service Tower rolls back from the United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket carrying the NROL-44 mission on Wednesday, September 30. United Launch Alliance
  • The Delta IV Heavy rocket is seen on the launch pad Wednesday night during the webcast at 1 minute, 33 seconds before planned liftoff. United Launch Alliance
  • The rocket, shown with a flare stack. United Launch Alliance
  • Starting to get hot at the business end of the rocket at T-10 seconds. United Launch Alliance
  • At T-7 seconds the starboard engine ignites, to be followed by the center and port engines at T-5 seconds. In this case, the abort was triggered just before ignition. United Launch Alliance
  • So the engines didn't fully ignite. United Launch Alliance
  • And so the engines slowly … United Launch Alliance
  • Went dark. United Launch Alliance
  • And then, so did the webcast. United Launch Alliance

Late on Wednesday night, United Launch Alliance's large Delta IV Heavy rocket again came within seconds of lifting off from its Florida launch pad. But once again, the launch was scrubbed.

Following the automated abort of the rocket at T-7 seconds, both the booster and its valuable National Reconnaissance Office payload were said to be safe. Because the abort was triggered just before the rocket's main RS-68 engines had begun to ignite, the delay before the next launch attempt may be less than a week.

The best children’s movies to watch on Netflix



Before the 1950s there were only two types of films, those for adults and those for children, it is since then films for boys have become a respectable cinematographic trend. Family, study, sexuality, love, rejection, growth of an ego no longer willing to come to terms with the will of others (especially adults), originality, over the years, teen movies have become the spokesperson for the present of their target, bringing at the cinema what the kids of one era after another wanted to see.

From action-packed special effects to the exploration of sexual identity, from makeover movies to first love dramas, to animated films and anime, there are many unmissable children’s titles. On Netflix there is a good selection, here are the ones to watch.

Little Women by Greta Gerwig

Although in the Netflix catalog there is also the version with Winona Ryder from 1994, we choose the one with Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson and Florence Pugh by Greta Gerwig from 2019 because, even if remaining faithful to Louisa May-Alcott’s classic and not abandoning the costumes, better approaches in spirit and staging to a more contemporary filmic language. 

The narration is entrusted to Jo (Ronan), who tells her story at the March house and that of her very different sisters. The great protagonist of this narrative but we can say of Little Women in general – is Amy, in whose shoes there is an amazing Florence Pugh. No baby-girl-boy-girl etc. can remain without ever having read or seen this cult. 

Sierra Burgess Is a Loser, by Ian Samuels

Sierra Burgess is a Loser is a teen-comedy that tells the hard life of a not-so-IT teenager at school. Sierra Burgess (Shannon Purser) is a very intelligent and somewhat nerdy young woman who ends up the (voluntary) victim of an identity mistake. Jamey, the most popular boy in school starts sending her a series of messages thinking he’s writing them to cheerleader Veronica. Once the exchange is discovered, however, she is unable to tell him, and so sets up a real parallel relationship.

Spirited Away and all Studio Ghibli films 

At the announcement that all Studio Ghibli’s animated cult films from Porco Rosso to My Neighbor Totoro had been included in the Netflix catalogue, we could only rejoice in profound joy. The films of the studio founded by Miyazaki, on the other hand, are little jewels of plot and staging, full of deep meanings and the result of boundless imagination. Watch them all. With the little ones have fun with Ponyo on the cliff, with the older ones let yourself be carried away by the wonderful stories of Kiki’s home deliveries, Howl’s moving castle or The enchanted city, but also by the amazing heroines of Princess Mononoke or Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind. Getting to know, seeing and re-watching the Studio Ghibli-Miyazaki films is a gift that you give yourself and you will give to those who don’t know them yet. 

Mowgli – Son of the Jungle, by Andy Serkis

This Netflix adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s classic is certainly not suitable for the little ones, but for grown-up kids. Forget the dancing bears and the tunes of the Disney animated version, Mowgli – Son of the Jungle is a ruthless and dark film about diversity and acceptance. The story is known, Mowgli was still a baby when he was stolen by the panther Bagheera from the clutches of the bloodthirsty tiger Shere Khan who had just exterminated an entire village of humans. Entrusted to the care of a family of wolves, Mowgli grows up thinking he is one of them, but it will only be through the famous ‘hunting test’ that he will be able to prove whether he is worthy of remaining in the pack.

Harry Potter – the saga

The world of Hogwarts and the most famous wizard ever arrived for Christmas in streaming, immediately positioning itself among the most viewed titles. From Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 1 and 2: all 8 films in the saga are available on Netflix, to watch and watch again while waiting for some news.

Effects of Ethical Hacking



Ethical hacking is a technique used to assess the security of an information system. It is a legal process that can be employed by companies or individuals. However, there are a number of negative effects that can come from using the technique.

The most obvious one is the loss of data. This can happen due to interference, theft, or damage. Some hackers intentionally destroy valuable data for malicious purposes. Other data may be encrypted, preventing it from being read.

On the other hand, there are also positive ethical hacking effects. For example, it can help catch terrorist messages. Similarly, the use of a good hacking tool can help uncover social problems.

Another positive effect is the improvement in cybersecurity. Many organizations employ programmers to check for security bugs. These can include vulnerabilities in the network infrastructure.

In addition, the effects of ethical hacking can be beneficial to the community. For example, an organization might patch a vulnerability that could lead to a data leak.

Hacking is also a good way to discover and fix weaknesses in a corporate network. An ethical hacker is an individual or group who infiltrates an organization’s network with the owner’s permission. They then identify and report any loopholes or vulnerabilities.

Unlike the more common forms of penetration testing, ethical hacking is a much more expensive process. It takes a long time and involves a lot of resources. That said, it is worth it for the potential benefits.
