Numbers, please: the fipping errors

Numbers, please: the fipping errors

Round? Pfff. Today 61 years ago, the physicist richard feynman held his famous lecture "there’s plenty of room at the bottom". In the area of miniaturization, nanotechnology, feynman saw a basis for technical progress. The smaller one thing was, the smaller the mistakes are also. A car that is built by a factor of 4000 reduced can still tolerate an error in the magnitude of 10 atoms, so feynman.

But sometimes little mistakes have gross effects. It is reminiscent of the most expensive typographical mistake of the world 15 years ago, which produced a damage from converted 300 million euros: a stock handler of mizuho securities sold instead of a share of j-com for the price of 610.000 yen mistakenly equal to 610.000 shares of the company for the price of 1 yen.

Fall asleep on the keyboard

Smaller fell out of an antiquity handler. He wanted at least 3000 marks for three raritats, but she put in his online shop for 3 marks for sale. The attempt to accuse the sum in court failed. Another magnitude had the error of a broker of bear stearns in october 2006. He wanted to sell shares worth four million us dollars, but set shares worth four billion for sale. The mistake was listed as securities worth 600 million dollars had already been sold.

Direct observation of extrasolar planets is not yet possible. But this could soon change

"So the only one is the sky, the immeasurable space. … In it are visible numerous stars, celestial bodies, globes, suns and earths … And countless others must reasonably be amed to exist. … We see only the suns, which are the coarser, even the roughest bodies, but not their earth bodies or planets, which, because their masses are much smaller, are invisible to us. … According to this, there is not one single world, one single earth, one single sun, but as many worlds as we see luminous sparks above us." this was not written by a contemporary astrophysicist as a plea for the existence of inhabitable worlds beyond our own solar system, but by giordano bruno in 1584 in his work de l’infinito, universo e mondi (on the infinite, the universe and the worlds).
