The Czech press said that Czech technology will help answer the question "Is there life on Mars?"

59

The Czech press has released a material that tells how Czech technology will help answer the question "Is there life on Mars?" In the material of the Czech observer Radek Dragun, it is reported that the Mars-2020 mission launched to the Red Planet with a Mars rover will provide data on the composition of the planet's soil. In the Czech Republic, it is believed that it is the analysis of the soils of Mars that will make it possible to draw a conclusion as to whether life exists (existed) on Mars in primitive forms (for example, bacteria).


The rover was launched to Mars a few days ago as part of NASA's Red Planet program. It would seem, what does the Czech Republic have to do with it ...

The press of the Czech Republic writes that it is with the help of components produced in the Czech Republic that the Martian soil will be taken. So, it tells about tantalum capacitors from the manufacturer AVX. These capacitors are used in a laser installation, through which samples of the Martian rock will be obtained.

From the material:

The machine uses a laser cannon to blast rock on the surface of Mars.

Representative of the Czech manufacturing company Slawomir Pala:

Tantalum capacitors (using tantalum pentoxide in the implementation of a certain technology) have high reliability and stability of electrical and temperature indicators during operation for a long time.

It is strange that the technology of using tantalum pentoxide in capacitors is called "Czech".

The Rover Perseverance rover is equipped with 350 Czech-made capacitors.

The Czech press said that Czech technology will help answer the question "Is there life on Mars?"


From the publications of the Czech media:

Another 350 Czech-made capacitors are already on Mars. They are part of the design of the Curiosity rover. His laser installation has already worked more than 100 thousand times, and Czech capacitors are still usable.


The Rover Perseverance is expected to land on Mars in February 2021.

            But what is funny is that the first tantalum capacitors appeared in the First Soviet semiconductor computer M-222 back in the mid-60s and at that time that computer was a military machine - there these tantalum capacitors were used (electrolytic tantalum pressurized) in large enough quantities.
            And what have the Czechs got to do with it? Although, in fact, these conduits failed extremely rarely.

    This question was answered long ago by the character of the lecturer from Carnival Night, played by Filippov. The one with the asterisk turned into three or better five stars. I don’t understand. Well, they will find microbes or wood lice on Mars. They will ditch several billion dollars on this, so what? Will they be brought to Earth to cause an epidemic? Probably, not. And then what? Here Filippov answered this question. It would be better if these billions were given to pregnant pensioners. As for the Czechs, as they say among the people, where the horse is with a hoof, there is claw cancer.

      AVX is a fairly large and old American office. They have over 10 employees worldwide. They have been involved in multilayer ceramics since about the 000s of the last century.
      You showed one of the factories located in South Carolina.
      The Czech Republic also has its own production. It is possible that it was they who produced the aforementioned capacitors.
      This year, AVX was bought by the Japanese Kyocera.

    Several years ago, when Grybauskaite was the president of Lithuania, the students of Vilnius University made a small box, pushed some electronic device into it and managed to attach this "device" to a European satellite. This "device", after the satellite was put into orbit, at a certain radio frequency, broadcast "beep-beep-beep" on the air. After that, President Grybauskaite publicly declared: "Lithuania is a space power!"
    It seems to me alone that there is a similar baida with the Czechs? Not?

    Comrades, all of you are interested in the question: "Is there life on Mars?" I ask everyone to look at the sky! From below, the stars seem small, small. But as soon as we take a telescope and look with an armed eye, as we already see two stars, three stars, four stars ... The best, of course, five stars. Whether there is life on Mars, whether there is life on Mars, this is unknown to science. Science is not yet in the know ...

    With great pleasure they used tantalum capacitors in their radio crafts, having previously removed them from the decommissioned electronics of our military-industrial complex, and this was in the early 80s, and the equipment had ALREADY been written off. So this technology is definitely not Czech!

    It would be nice to first formulate what life is. And then the basic formulations of "life" are reduced to a description of a person. Anything that does not breathe oxygen or is not carbon-organic is not considered a life form. And of course, the main thing is that the "iPhone" (according to Surdin) can do, then it will prove reasonableness.

    For a long time already, cosmonauts Grechko and Romanenko, on Salyut-6, used a six-channel camera made by the Carl Zeiss Jena factory from the then GDR to photograph the Earth's surface. And the inhabitants of the GDR were proud of this and had the right to do so.
    Today's Czechs, if their equipment is at the forefront of space exploration, also have reason to be proud.

      I agree that there is a reason, although not a big one. But your comparison is incorrect. A six-channel camera (clearly a piece and complex product) and a fairly massive stamping of serial parts (although tantalum conductors are not that massive, because of the price they go only for critical products), and the technology for their manufacture is not particularly outstanding, long developed and debugged.

        They are not "podniks". If you think in this logic, the Belarusians should (in your opinion) be called "Podrosiyisniki". A normal, small European country, with a good standard of living, quite peaceful and integrated into the European Union.
        Yes, they have chosen for life not a Russian model and not an orientation towards Russia, it happens. Not many countries choose to live "in the Russian way".
        You do not despise them - you hate Russia because it is not such a great power as you would like. But the Czechs (as well as Bulgarians, Romanians, Germans, Finns, Dutch, Danes, Swedes, Greeks, French, British, Norwegians, etc.) have nothing to do with it.
        In general, the logic of "contempt" is flawed in its very essence. You pump yourself up with hatred and, gradually, become not critical of your own life, of what is around you.
        From a certain moment it becomes easy and simple to manage you.
        Hatred based on a deep sense of inferiority (in this case, your own country - in your mind) transfers you from the state of a subject, independently shaping your own destiny, into an object used by others.

            "Fraternal Union with Russia" - on what basis? What could be the basis of such a union?
            Countries are "friends" on the basis of common cultural, including religious roots, relying on economic ties, often formed over hundreds of years. The Czech Republic and Russia have none of this.
            "Material benefits" are at the heart of effective economic interaction. Nothing from "prostitution" in the politics of the Czech Republic, like other former socialist countries, is not close. After the collapse of the USSR, they restored the form of the economic system that they had previously, and nothing more.
            And, naturally, they strove to join the European Union. But not in "fraternal", but culturally and historically close.
