Data sent to Earth by NASA’s Perseverance rover after its first attempt to collect a rock sample on Mars and seal it in a sample tube indicate that no rock was collected during the initial sampling activity.

The rover carries 43 titanium sample tubes and is exploring Jezero Crater, where it will be gathering samples of rock and regolith (broken rock and dust) for future analysis on Earth.

“While this is not the ‘hole-in-one’ we hoped for, there is always risk with breaking new ground,” said Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington. “I’m confident we have the right team working this, and we will persevere toward a solution to ensure future success.”

Perseverance’s Sampling and Caching System uses a hollow coring bit and a percussive drill at the end of its 7-foot-long (2-meter-long) robotic arm to extract samples. Telemetry from the rover indicates that during its first coring attempt, the drill and bit were engaged as planned, and post-coring, the sample tube was processed as intended.

“The sampling process is autonomous from beginning to end,” said Jessica Samuels, the surface mission manager for Perseverance at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California. “One of the steps that occurs after placing a probe into the collection tube is to measure the volume of the sample. The probe did not encounter the expected resistance that would be there if a sample were inside the tube.”

The Perseverance mission is assembling a response team to analyze the data. One early step will be to use the WATSON (Wide Angle Topographic Sensor for Operations and eNgineering) imager – located at the end of the robotic arm – to take close-up pictures of the borehole. Once the team has a better understanding of what happened, it will be able to ascertain when to schedule the next sample collection attempt.

“The initial thinking is that the empty tube is more likely a result of the rock target not reacting the way we expected during coring, and less likely a hardware issue with the Sampling and Caching System,” said Jennifer Trosper, project manager for Perseverance at JPL. “Over the next few days, the team will be spending more time analyzing the data we have, and also acquiring some additional diagnostic data to support understanding the root cause for the empty tube.”

Previous NASA missions on Mars have also encountered surprising rock and regolith properties during sample collection and other activities. In 2008, the Phoenix mission sampled soil that was “sticky” and difficult to move into onboard science instruments, resulting in multiple tries before achieving success. Curiosity has drilled into rocks that turned out to be harder and more brittle than expected. Most recently, the heat probe on the InSight lander, known as the “mole,” was unable to penetrate the Martian surface as planned.

“I have been on every Mars rover mission since the beginning, and this planet is always teaching us what we don’t know about it,” said Trosper. “One thing I’ve found is, it’s not unusual to have complications during complex, first-time activities.”

First Science Campaign

Perseverance is currently exploring two geologic units containing Jezero Crater’s deepest and most ancient layers of exposed bedrock and other intriguing geologic features. The first unit, called the “Crater Floor Fractured Rough,” is the floor of Jezero. The adjacent unit, named “Séítah” (meaning “amidst the sand” in the Navajo language), has Mars bedrock as well, and is also home to ridges, layered rocks, and sand dunes.

Recently, the Perseverance science team began using color images from the Ingenuity Mars Helicopter to help scout for areas of potential scientific interest and to look for potential hazards. Ingenuity completed its 11th flight Wednesday, Aug. 4, traveling about 1,250 feet (380 meters) downrange of its current location so that it could provide the project aerial reconnaissance of the southern Séítah area.

The rover’s initial science foray, which spans hundreds of sols (or Martian days), will be complete when Perseverance returns to its landing site. At that point, Perseverance will have traveled between 1.6 and 3.1 miles (2.5 and 5 kilometers) and may have filled up to eight of its sample tubes.

Next, Perseverance will travel north, then west, toward the location of its second science campaign: Jezero Crater’s delta region. The delta is the fan-shaped remains of the confluence of an ancient river and a lake within Jezero Crater. The region may be especially rich in carbonate minerals. On Earth, such minerals can preserve fossilized signs of ancient microscopic life and are associated with biological processes.

EA boxing club barrack behind a railway underpass smeared with graffiti in Frankfurt’s no-man’s-land – no, it’s not exactly a natural CDU biotope.

On the contrary, everything screams “SPD election campaign location” when you look around the overgrown, lonely area at the former freight yard. There in the unadorned barracks of the “boxing and table tennis camp Frankfurt-Gallus”, in front of which a handful of TV teams and a bunch of reporters are lounging in the sun this morning, according to the club website, disadvantaged young people usually learn “themselves to have control of oneself instead of being violent ”.

When a few deep black limousines finally approached at 10:32 am on a battered lane through the underpass, the small convoy looks strangely staged, like a scene from the Frankfurt “crime scene”. As if a clan boss and entourage rushed up to meet in a remote location with the competition to agree on territory.

But from one of the polished Audi sedans only a demonstratively good-humored, beaming Armin Laschet (CDU) peeled off. He chose a blue suit for the appointment, but casually without a tie.

Without further ado, the Union’s candidate for chancellor explains to the waiting journalists why he had come from Düsseldorf specifically to join his Bundestag election campaign in the socially deprived area of ​​Gallus, of all places. “Those are my old topics! Youth! Integration! Opportunities for advancement! ”He rattles off. “And secondly, there is fighting here!”

So that’s what it’s all about, the great symbolism: Armin Laschet, carer and fighter. The man who gets into the boxing ring six and a half weeks before the general election and wants to show what he’s made of. Who wants to punch his way through and can also deal with it, knowing where it hurts the opponent. And with all of this, he always has a heart for the disadvantaged in this society.

In Gallus, the former Frankfurt Galgenviertel, Laschet would like to show how much he cares about topics such as integration, education and equal opportunities – at least as much as the SPD.

Get out of the sleeping car

Whether he will penetrate with this message remains to be seen. But that he could indeed benefit a lot from a huge portion of will to fight, no one will deny that. For weeks, Laschet has been scolded for being too cautious and wanting to roll into the chancellery in a sleeping car – even in his own camp.

He avoids clear positions, so the criticism, and evades election campaigns and arguments. CSU boss Markus Söder is also constantly putting pinpricks, and so far Laschet simply did not want to come up with a right defense against all of this.

In the quick case: Armin Laschet (CDU)

Now, just this morning, a new Forsa survey appeared, and it is in no way inclined to instill confidence in the candidate for the Chancellery. Not only that the CDU / CSU has slumped further in the voter survey, from 26 to a disgraceful 23 percent.

The Union is now only three points ahead of the recently unchanged Greens and four ahead of the SPD, which in turn gained three points. Above all, however, the personal, already weak popularity ratings of the Rhinelander and CDU federal chairman have once again rushed down.

SPD increases – Union sinks to 23 percent

In a recent Forsa survey, the Union is clearly losing popularity, while the SPD can improve. In the Chancellor preference, SPD candidate Olaf Scholz added five percentage points.

Source: WORLD / Daniel Franz

If the Federal Chancellor were directly elected by the people, then SPD candidate Olaf Scholz would get a whopping 26 percent, five points more than a week ago. Laschet, on the other hand, lost another three points and is now twelve percent. It is hardly consoling that Green competitor Annalena Baerbock has not been able to score for a long time and recently also lost two more points.

Because despite everything, 16 percent would still choose Baerbock; So Laschet is at the very back. Even the supporters of the CDU / CSU are, if you believe Forsa, not very happy about their chancellor personnel offer: According to the survey institute, only 39 percent of the Union supporters would currently elect the CDU boss directly as chancellor. And allegedly, of the Union voters who voted for the Union in 2017, only 24 percent would tick Laschet.

“You can learn a lot from boxing”

These are of course all setbacks in order to stick to the imagery, and Laschet is now planning the counterattack that many in his party have longed for. At least that’s the subtext this morning. “What do you actually need bandages for?” He asks when chatting with the young people about boxing. “To avoid injuries,” a blond teenager explains to him.

The candidate now wants to put on such bandages and drive the opponent in front of him. “You can learn a lot in boxing with clear rules and commitment,” he says.

After putting on his boxing gloves for a few seconds in order to produce the hoped-for, symbolic photos, he says it is high time “to come to a political election campaign”. So it should no longer be about copied book passages or laughs in the flood disaster area.

Or about detailed questions such as whether it was wise to hold a press conference in front of a gigantic heap of rubbish after the flood and to set up a neat, well-cleaned lectern – including the North Rhine-Westphalian coat of arms.

In an interview with “Bild am Sonntag”, Laschet had promised that the Union’s election campaign would really pick up speed. When asked whether quick speeches and a tough election campaign could be expected from him soon, he replied: “Yes! I’m really looking forward to these speeches. ”

But there are no speeches scheduled in Frankfurt, not to mention quick speeches. After all, it is only a stripped-down catch-up date because the originally planned three-day tour to kick off the election campaign through the German southwest had to be canceled due to the flood crisis management.

“Integration is lived here”

Those: dpa / Armando Babani

Actually, Laschet had wanted to travel on to Baden-Württemberg, but that was also canceled, now it’s Dresden’s turn. But he didn’t want to do without Frankfurt and the appointment at the boxing camp: “I’m happy that I can start my election campaign here,” he says. “This is exactly the right place, this is where integration is lived.”

Young people have the chance to move forward on their own and make a contribution to society. “That can only be done through the German language,” says the Christian Democrat, who is particularly impressed by the fact that only German is spoken at the Gallus Box Camp.

He wanted to enforce that in the future in kindergarten, at the age of three, “language proficiency tests” are made. This must become mandatory nationwide so that every child can get language training in kindergarten if necessary. “This is the only way for a child to have the same starting opportunities as everyone else when they start elementary school.”

Otherwise, however, Laschet has little new in terms of content. The future of jobs in industry must be discussed, he says, and announces that this question will be linked to climate policy. Young people should have a chance for a future if they perform for society. “So the jobs must still be there in the future, but they must be climate-neutral. Our competitors don’t have an answer. ”

Again he warns of another school lockdown due to Corona. “I can only appeal: Don’t just look at the incidence figures, think of the children and adolescents too,” says Laschet. All efforts should be directed towards advancing vaccination. Because activities like those in the boxing club would have suffered far too much in the corona pandemic. “You cannot learn socially together only digitally via the screen.”

The hiring of Argentine striker Lionel Messi by PSG – added to those of four other players during the summer – is causing some teeth to cringe in Europe. Some see it as the effects of anti-competitive financial “doping” that no regulatory framework would curb. In particular financial fair play, a mechanism instituted in 2010 by UEFA, the umbrella body for football in Europe, which aims to prevent clubs from spending more than they earn.

“We respect the rules of financial fair play and we will always respect them, assured Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, the president of the PSG, Wednesday, August 11, during the first press conference of Lionel Messi. If we sign Leo, it’s because we can do it. Otherwise, we wouldn’t have signed it. ”

In March, Joan Laporta openly doubted it. While PSG had made, a little earlier, calls for the six-fold Golden Ball, the president of FC Barcelona had said that the leaders of the Parisian club could ” perhaps “ recruit the Argentinian “If they continue to disregard the standards of financial fair play”.

Possible introduction of a “luxury tax”

“They had significant losses. I would be curious to know if they will ignore the rules of financial fair play to recruit him. If that happens, I hope that UEFA and FIFA [la fédération internationale] react firmly and that the Court of Arbitration for Sport [TAS] will not tremble when it comes time to deliver its verdict ”, Mr Laporta added. The latter referred to a judgment of the CAS which, in March 2019, had concluded that there was no need to prosecute PSG, while the adjudicatory chamber of the financial control body for clubs, a body dependent on UEFA wanted to re-examine the club’s dossier.

Launched at low speed in the holes of the “Coastal”, the national road connecting Abidjan to San Pedro, the heavyweight of Dramane Ouedraogo bumps into an infernal din. His friend and his apprentice, seated on the passenger side, jump in their seats without flinching. “The road tires the man”, launches the driver as his old truck sinks into yet another pothole: “After a trip, it’s like someone hit me, my whole body hurts. ”

Between Abidjan and Sassandra, his weekly 270 km journey, the truck driver fights relentlessly with his large-format steering wheel and his gearbox lever patched with tape to overcome the upheavals of the road. “When we leave, we don’t even know if we are going to reach our destination! “, he says.

Driver for twenty-two years, Dramane Ouedraogo transports construction material and sometimes fruit or other food from the region. It is never an easy task. On the way, it stops at Fresco, undoubtedly the most isolated town of the route as the road, on one side as on the other of the town, is “Spoiled”. From Fresco, the truck takes no less than four hours and thirty minutes to reach Grand-Lahou, 76 km to the east, and four hours to the west to reach Sassandra, 68 km away.

A puzzle for producers

Dramane Ouedraogo is one of those carriers essential to the life of the inhabitants of the coast. In Fresco, a small town of 20,000 souls bordered by the lagoon and then the ocean, the economy revolves around fishing – controlled by Ghanaians, as often in Côte d’Ivoire – and agriculture, the prerogative of Ivorians. Here, the climatic conditions are ideal. Everything grows: cocoa, coconut, palm seeds, cassava …

The problem is the transport of agricultural products to the ports of Abidjan and San Pedro. A headache for producers, especially during the rainy season. Few transport companies risk it. Despite the tourism, fruit and mining potentials often praised by local elected officials, the region is one of the poorest in the country.

“The trucks no longer want to come here, we have to beg those who are heading for Abidjan”, assures Hervé Lobognon, owner of a 23 hectare coconut grove. Over the years, selling your coconuts has become more and more complicated and expensive. Truck drivers have to spend twice as much gasoline as on a normal road. As a result, they increase their rates. Here, transporting a full dumpster costs 400,000 CFA francs (610 euros) instead of 300,000 to 350,000 CFA francs.

And the goods do not always arrive at their destination. So the farmer sometimes accompanies the transporters to the processing plant, in order to avoid unpleasant surprises. “Once, it took me three days to reach Abidjan, relate-t-il. One day the tire bursts, the next day the radiator heats up. Sometimes the truck overturns, the merchandise rots and in those cases, I don’t win anything. “ Hence his bitterness when he saw the politicians take the road with their all-terrain car, without ever taking action. “It’s wickedness”, he comments.

“It happens that a woman dies on the way”

“On the Coast, the breakdowns are inexplicable, even our bosses do not believe us”, protests Dramane Ouedraogo, as broken as his old truck that he repairs after each trip. “In five years, I will no longer be able to do this job, he breathes. Accidents, holes, fatigue, overturned truck, merchandise thieves… You put your life in danger and you are afraid. “ All for a very meager salary: “I earn 100,000 francs a month at best. I wish that one day the money I put in my pocket wouldn’t come out. “

The isolation of Fresco is not only economic. It is also sanitary. At the city hospital, resources are extremely limited. Due to the lack of an operating theater, the work of which has barely begun is taken over by wild weeds, the hospital has neither surgeon nor gynecologist. Cesarean sections must therefore be scheduled elsewhere, sometimes even in Abidjan. In an emergency – when the blood bags cannot be kept due to the numerous power cuts – patients are forced to take a taxi to Abidjan. Or six hours of hectic road.

“The ambulance is under hold”, deplores Doctor Ludovic Djé-Bi Ta, director of the hospital, showing the bricks on which the broken down vehicle has been based for weeks. The nearest ambulances being 20 or 35 km away, the taxi “Saves time”, justifies the director, annoyed. In these cases, which occur between five and ten times a month, “It happens that a woman dies on the way”, he notes. The race is the responsibility of the families, “But if they have no money, the hospital intervenes [pour payer la note] », he specifies.

According to the developers, new materials inspired by the chainmail used in the armor worn by medieval knights could be used to create future spacesuits.

The material can hold more than 30 times its own weight and is flexible, California Polytechnic Institute in Pasadena.

In the future, not only will it help astronauts walk on Mars, but 3D-printed material may cover the spacecraft and protect it from meteorites and other deep space hazards.

Further down the globe, it hardens from a soft bend and can return to its original state, providing additional protection for sports men and women.

High-tech garments also open the door to a smart exoskeleton that allows paralyzed people to walk again, or provide armor to modern soldiers.

The team doesn’t say how much it will cost for 3D printed matter, or even when it becomes commercially available or even available on a spacecraft.

In the future, not only will it help astronauts walk on Mars, but 3D-printed material may cover the spacecraft and protect it from meteorites and other deep space hazards.

How it works: 3D-printed chainmail-inspired material

Structured fabrics, such as woven fabrics and chainmail, derive their properties from both their constituent materials and their shape.

Their designs can target desirable properties such as high impact resistance, thermal conditioning, or electrical conductivity.

However, once realized, fabric properties are usually fixed.

This material is a structured fabric with adjustable flexural modulus and consists of three-dimensional particles placed in a layered chain mail.

Chain mail has a complicated shape, but when pressure is applied to the boundary, particles get entangled and the chain mail is clogged.

“With a small external pressure (about 93 kilopascals), the seat shows that it is more than 25 times stiffer than in a relaxed configuration,” the team writes.

“This dramatic increase in bending resistance occurs because the interlocking particles have high tensile resistance, unlike those found in loose granular media.”

“Our work provides a route to lightweight, adjustable and adaptable fabrics with wearable exoskeletons, tactile architectures, and potential applications in reconfigurable medical support.”

The traditional chainmail worn by medieval knights consists of a series of linked metal rings.

In summary, it’s sturdy, yet supple, so you can wear it on your body.

It buffered the warriors from the arrows, softened the blows from swords, axes, maces and other weapons, and covered their bodies snugly.

Created in California, the new textiles are made of plastic rather than fiber or metal, switching between rigid and soft states as needed.

Project leader Professor Chiara Darao states that the material is adjustable.

“Stiffness-altering materials may be used in space applications,” he said.

“Sure, one of our co-authors, Dr. Doughoffmann, is from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

“We believe that command-changeable stiffness fabrics can be very useful as a protective layer in deployable structures that change shape and size.”

Such devices are used in solar panels and spacecraft sails.

“Manufactured on different scales or with different constituent materials, they can be used as protective wearables or as emergency shelters,” says Darao.

In testing, when pressure was applied, a layer of interlocked particles caused a phenomenon known as a “jamming transition.”

According to Daraio, this will significantly change the mechanical configuration, changing the hollow shell from floppy to hard, which could be useful in a variety of robotic and medical applications in the future.

The US team 3D printed chainmail. In this chainmail, each link was constructed by connecting stanchions and placed in a sealed plastic bag to expel air.

The team discovered that when the air was removed, the resulting pressure increased stiffness by more than 25 times.

The team doesn't say how much it will cost for 3D printed matter, or even when it becomes commercially available or available on a spacecraft.

The materials listed in Nature provide the hope of a very durable garment or exoskeleton that fits the human body and can be used to lift heavy objects more easily and safely.

The materials listed in Nature provide the hope of a very durable garment or exoskeleton that fits the human body and can be used to lift heavy objects more easily and safely.

Professor Dalio said that in its original state, the fabric is flexible and can be hung on complex objects like any other fabric, such as the human body.

“When compressed, the interconnected particles clog each other and are about 25 times harder than in a relaxed configuration,” he said.

“The resulting structure can hold more than 30 times its own weight.”

The materials listed in Nature provide the hope of a very durable garment or exoskeleton that fits the human body and can be used to lift heavy objects more easily and safely.

You can also form complex architectures and lock them in place without having to revert to a flexible state.

One example where this can be used is a spacecraft that has moved to another planet and needs protection from asteroids and space debris.

NASA is investigating a variety of high-tech fabrics that it expects to be used to protect spacecraft and astronauts.

One use for this is during manned Mars missions to Mars in the 2030s and 1940s.

It can also be used on Jupiter’s ice satellite Europa and as a life-seeking probe in the world of other aliens in a harsh environment.

It also provides additional protection for sports men and women with its ability to fall from the soft, bendable state to the hard and return to the earth.

The material can hold more than 30 times its own weight and is flexible. Created by experts at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena.

Professor Caraio said the work provides the first step towards materials that are lightweight, adjustable and protective.

He said that the adaptive fabrics created from this study have a wide range of potential applications.

These are seen in the form of wearable exoskeletons, tactile architectures, and reconfigurable medical support.

Dr. Laurent Orgeas, a mechanical engineer at the University of Grenoble Alpes in France, who was not involved in this study, said there are many potential uses.

The team doesn’t say how much it will cost for 3D printed matter, or even when it becomes commercially available or available on a spacecraft.

Created in California, the new textiles are made of plastic rather than fiber or metal, switching between rigid and soft states as needed.

He states: “Chainmail can be draped into multiple configurations before being” packed “in selected static shapes with load-bearing capabilities such as biomedical, sports, or military exoskeletons.

“Chain mail can also be useful in civil or mechanical engineering as a resizeable, deployable structure, for example to create temporary shelters and bridges.”

Dr. Orgeas added: “The use of AI (artificial intelligence) algorithms may be an attractive approach for optimizing link shape for a targeted combination of flexibility, jamming, and load-bearing capabilities.”

The survey results were published in the journal Nature..

NASA plans to send a manned mission to Mars in the 2030s after the first landing on the moon.

Mars has become the next major leap forward for human space exploration.

But before humans arrive on the Red Planet, astronauts take a series of small steps by returning to the Moon for a year’s mission.

Details of the mission in lunar orbit were revealed as part of the timeline of events leading to the mission to Mars in the 2030s.

At the Humans to Mars Summit in Washington, DC yesterday, Nasa outlined a four-step plan (pictured) that hopes one day humans will be able to visit Mars.This involves multiple missions to the moon over the next few decades

May 2017, Greg Williams, Deputy Deputy Administrator of Policies and Planning NasaOutlined the space agency’s four-stage plan, which it hopes will one day be able to visit Mars, and its expected time frame.

Phases 1 and 2 Includes multiple trips to the lunar space to allow the construction of habitats that provide a staging area for the trip.

The last piece of hardware delivered is the actual deep space transport that will later be used to carry the crew to Mars.

And a one-year simulation of life on Mars will take place in 2027.

Phases 3 and 4 will begin after 2030 and will include a sustained crew expedition to the Martian system and surface of Mars.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3Design and ergonomics

From the outset, there are two important things to know about the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and more generally about foldable smartphones in clamshell format. First of all, the phone isn’t aimed at the same audience at all as the Galaxy Z Fold 3, which is very focused on productivity and the comfort of a large tablet screen. Second, you have to hang on to the concept to appreciate it. Indeed, if you do not think you will derive any pleasure from closing the phone after using it, this product is most certainly not for you. You have been warned.

If these caveats don’t cool you off, then chances are the Galaxy Z Flip 3 will catch your eye. He fully assumes his DNA fashion which seeks to seduce the general public – while the Fold rather courted the technophiles. We have a subtly revamped aesthetic with straighter and more angular finishes than on the first Z Flip and thinner borders around the internal foldable screen.

This gives it a more modern look which I particularly liked.

Getting started Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3

This impression is reinforced by the rather wide black band which frames the external screen of the phone to give a two-tone look to the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and which goes well with the plethora of colors available for this product. The grip comfort is for its part guaranteed by the contained weight of 183 grams and the small size of the smartphone in its folded form – a 72.2 x 86.4 x 17.1 mm pebble easy to store in the pocket.

Moreover, the effort made by Samsung to improve the robustness of the phone is a big bonus compared to last year. Not only does the smartphone finally become waterproof with an IPX8 certification (these are the first folding with the Fold 3 to benefit from it), but we also benefit from Gorilla Glass Victus protection on the front and back associated with a frame and a hinge made of reinforced aluminum.

The most palpable progress in terms of durability lies in the internal screen which sees its protective plastic film become 80% more resistant. I tried to leave a mark with my thumbnail without going with the back of the dead hand (I know that’s the wrong expression, eh). One, two, three attempts, all unsuccessful and therefore rather reassuring. We obviously advise you to be careful, but this guarantee of quality is very good to take.

Another very important point: the clap when closing the phone is still as satisfying to hear.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3Screens

For screens, know that the internal panel offers a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with Full HD + definition and an adaptive 120 Hz mode for good fluidity. Nothing really surprising here. For a real interesting novelty, you have to look at the side of the external screen.

This one grows compared to the previous generation to reach 1.9 inches (against 1.1 inches previously). It seems quite anecdotal presented like this, but the difference is really felt. Notifications, incoming messages, music control and weather forecasting… All the small features offered by this display become much more practical to use. The Galaxy Z Flip 3 becomes more relevant to use even when it is closed.

One example comes to mind: The stopwatch and voice recorder widgets are easy to access on this small screen and they’re handy things to have on hand, without wasting time unfolding the phone. Another use case, you can still take photos with the Galaxy Z Flip 3 when it is closed by using the external panel for the camera return. Now, however, it is possible to switch from one sensor to another and also to go to video mode with a swipe of the finger up or to the side. Note also that the definition of the small panel is 260 x 512 pixels.

For the rest, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 benefits from a Snapdragon 888 and 8 GB of RAM, enough to allow it a good power on a daily basis. For photos, you’ll find two 12-megapixel sensors on the back (wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle) and a 10-megapixel sensor in the internal screen bubble. Regarding autonomy, we can not help but have some fears in view of the 3300 mAh battery which, from what Samsung France told us, supports up to 15 W only on the load (and charger is not supplied).

5G, stereo speakers and Flex Mode are still there. As a reminder, this last option allows you to use the Galaxy Z Flip 3 in a seated position by dividing the screen in two.

In the camera for example, you will see the preview on the upper half and the buttons on the lower half.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3Pricing and availability

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 therefore comes above all to refine the design to make it more modern and pleasant while offering a better external screen. All of this is also wrapped up in better protections to reassure customers.

Folding smartphones for everyone soon?

However, to attract users, it is also necessary to be attractive in terms of price. The folding smartphone cannot yet boast of having a good quality / price ratio, but by launching at 500 euros less than its predecessor, it is taking a serious step forward to accelerate democratization. We’re not there yet, but we’re getting closer.

Various colors of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 // Source: Frandroid

For comparison, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 cost as much as the Galaxy S21 + when it was released. It will not be the day before that we will see them everywhere, but the chances of meeting a nice commercial success, all things considered, are not to be taken lightly.

Not yet under 1000 euros

It is therefore necessary to count on a recommended price of 1059 euros for the Galaxy Z Flip 3 with 128 GB of storage and 1109 euros for the one with 256 GB of storage. Pre-orders (charge pack offered) begin on August 11 and last until August 26. August 27 will mark the commercial launch of the smartphone.

We have a subtly revamped aesthetic with straighter and more angular finishes than on the first Z Flip and thinner borders around the internal foldable screen.

This gives it a more modern look which I particularly liked.

This impression is reinforced by the rather wide black band which frames the external screen of the phone to give a two-tone look to the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and which goes well with the plethora of colors available for this product. The grip comfort is for its part guaranteed by the contained weight of 183 grams and the small size of the smartphone in its folded form – a 72.2 x 86.4 x 17.1 mm pebble easy to store in the pocket.

Moreover, the effort made by Samsung to improve the robustness of the phone is a big bonus compared to last year. Not only does the smartphone finally become waterproof with an IPX8 certification (these are the first folding with the Fold 3 to benefit from it), but we also benefit from Gorilla Glass Victus protection on the front and back associated with a frame and a hinge made of reinforced aluminum.

The most palpable progress in terms of durability lies in the internal screen which sees its protective plastic film become 80% more resistant. I tried to leave a mark with my thumbnail without going with the back of the dead hand (I know that’s the wrong expression, eh). One, two, three attempts, all unsuccessful and therefore rather reassuring. We obviously advise you to be careful, but this guarantee of quality is very good to take.

Another very important point: the clap when closing the phone is still as satisfying to hear.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3Screens

For screens, know that the internal panel offers a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with Full HD + definition and an adaptive 120 Hz mode for good fluidity. Nothing really surprising here. For a real interesting novelty, you have to look at the side of the external screen.

This one grows compared to the previous generation to reach 1.9 inches (against 1.1 inches previously). It seems quite anecdotal presented like this, but the difference is really felt. Notifications, incoming messages, music control and weather forecasting… All the small features offered by this display become much more practical to use. The Galaxy Z Flip 3 becomes more relevant to use even when it is closed.

One example comes to mind: The stopwatch and voice recorder widgets are easy to access on this small screen and they’re handy things to have on hand, without wasting time unfolding the phone. Another use case, you can still take photos with the Galaxy Z Flip 3 when it is closed by using the external panel for the camera return. Now, however, it is possible to switch from one sensor to another and also to go to video mode with a swipe of the finger up or to the side. Note also that the definition of the small panel is 260 x 512 pixels.

For the rest, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 benefits from a Snapdragon 888 and 8 GB of RAM, enough to allow it a good power on a daily basis. For photos, you’ll find two 12-megapixel sensors on the back (wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle) and a 10-megapixel sensor in the internal screen bubble. Regarding autonomy, we can not help but have some fears in view of the 3300 mAh battery which, from what Samsung France told us, supports up to 15 W only on the load (and charger is not supplied).

5G, stereo speakers and Flex Mode are still there. As a reminder, this last option allows you to use the Galaxy Z Flip 3 in a seated position by dividing the screen in two.

In the camera for example, you will see the preview on the upper half and the buttons on the lower half.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3Pricing and availability

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 therefore comes above all to refine the design to make it more modern and pleasant while offering a better external screen. All of this is also wrapped up in better protections to reassure customers.

Folding smartphones for everyone soon?

However, to attract users, it is also necessary to be attractive in terms of price. The folding smartphone cannot yet boast of having a good quality / price ratio, but by launching at 500 euros less than its predecessor, it is taking a serious step forward to accelerate democratization. We’re not there yet, but we’re getting closer.

For comparison, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 cost as much as the Galaxy S21 + when it was released. It will not be the day before that we will see them everywhere, but the chances of meeting a nice commercial success, all things considered, are not to be taken lightly.

Not yet under 1000 euros

It is therefore necessary to count on a recommended price of 1059 euros for the Galaxy Z Flip 3 with 128 GB of storage and 1109 euros for the one with 256 GB of storage. Pre-orders (charge pack offered) begin on August 11 and last until August 26. August 27 will mark the commercial launch of the smartphone.

Remember that we also took charge of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and that other products were announced by Samsung during its conference:

Germany and the Netherlands do an about-face. The two countries announced, Wednesday, August 11, the suspension of the expulsions of Afghan migrants to their country of origin, because of the fighting on the spot between the Taliban and pro-government forces, which are causing many civilian victims.

Alongside the Belgian, Danish, Greek and Austrian governments, Germany and the Netherlands had nevertheless asked the European Commission last week to maintain the possibility of deporting Afghan migrants, despite a call from Kabul to stop these expulsions.

In Berlin, the interior ministry finally opted for the suspension “Due to the evolution of the security situation” in the country, justified one of its spokespersons, Steve Alter, on Twitter. Since 2016, around a thousand Afghans, refused their asylum applications, have been deported by plane to their country by the German authorities, especially during the years 2018 and 2019.

“The situation in Afghanistan is likely to change and events for the coming period are so uncertain that I have decided to introduce a moratorium on decisions [d’expulsion] and departures “, for her part, said Dutch Secretary of State for Justice and Security Ankie Broekers-Knol.

“The moratorium on decisions and departures applies for a period of six months and applies to foreign nationals of Afghan nationality”, added the minister, member of the People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVD), in a letter to the Dutch Parliament. No forced return of Afghans has taken place in the past six months, and no expulsion is expected soon, she said.

Suspension already in place in Sweden and Finland

The expulsions of Afghans were denounced in both Germany and the Netherlands by left-wing parties and associations for the defense of asylum seekers. In recent weeks, the situation in Afghanistan has changed rapidly. Galvanized by the withdrawal of foreign forces, who will have left Afghanistan for good by the end of August, after twenty years of presence, the Taliban have increased territorial gains.

They seized on Sunday most of Kunduz, a large provincial capital, in the northeast of the country. In recent days, they have taken over eight other provincial capitals, in a lightning offensive that began in May and has recently gained momentum.

The Kabul government in July called on European countries to stop deporting Afghan migrants for the next three months. Sweden and Finland had suspended removals to Afghanistan following the appeal.

Afghans made up 10.6% of asylum seekers in the European Union (EU) in 2020, or just over 44,000 of the 416,600 cases filed. This is the second largest contingent behind the Syrians (15.2%), according to the statistical agency Eurostat.

According to a European official, since the start of 2021, 1,200 people have been returned from the EU to Afghanistan. Among them, a thousand people were qualified as “Volunteers” at the beginning ; the other 200 were “Forced” from.

As the legislative elections in September approach, the Russian authorities are once again putting pressure on the Kremlin’s pet peeve. Alexeï Navalny, already imprisoned for fraud, was charged, Wednesday, August 11, with another offense punishable by three years in prison.

The 45-year-old anti-corruption activist is now charged with “Attack on the identity and rights of citizens” because its Anti-Corruption Fund (FBK) would have “Incited citizens to commit unlawful acts”, in particular by “Calling for participation in unauthorized gatherings”.

According to the Russian investigation committee, which indicted Navalny again on Wednesday, the opponent and his collaborators have “Organized the distribution on their personal pages on the Internet and on the pages of the FBK (…) of publications calling on Russian citizens to participate in unauthorized rallies in January ”, when several demonstrations in support of Mr. Navalny had taken place to protest his arrest. “Navalny was aware in advance of the illegal nature” of these gatherings, investigators said.

For its part, the opponent’s team denounced an accusation on Telegram ” stupid “, once again calling on the Russians to « voter intelligent » in September by giving their voice to the candidate best placed to beat that of power in the absence of candidates from the formation of the number one opponent of the Kremlin.

“No one undermines the identity and rights of citizens as [le président Vladimir] Putin himself and all his henchmen ”, quipped the opponent’s team. “The only rights we want to infringe are those (…) that these thieves invented for themselves: the infinite power, the possibility of stealing our money from the budget and not taking into account the opinion of the citizens ”, she added.

Unprecedented pressures

Mr. Navalny’s movement has come under unprecedented pressure since the opponent’s return to Russia in January after several months of convalescence in Germany for poisoning he accuses the Kremlin of.

At the beginning of August, its organizations were liquidated after being labeled as“Extremists” by the courts in June, websites linked to him were blocked by order of the authorities and several of his collaborators are targeted by various legal proceedings ranging from an offense “To health standards” funding organizations “Extremists”.

For Western countries and human rights NGOs, these critics of the Russian system are victims of political prosecution. Europeans and Americans have also imposed sanctions on Russian officials.

Known for his anti-corruption investigations targeting elites, Mr. Navalny is currently serving a two-and-a-half-year sentence in a colony for a fraud case dating back to 2014, which he considers political. Its allies denounce all these measures as being intended to hamper the activities of the opposition, particularly in the run-up to the legislative elections in September.

Due to the risk of imprisonment, several relatives of Mr. Navalny have left the country in recent months while the crackdown has also affected other opponents wishing to run for office and independent media. In addition, this election will take place against a backdrop of the unpopularity of the ruling United Russia party, economic stagnation, voter fatigue and repeated corruption scandals.
