As the press service notes, before the launch campaign, it is necessary to conduct a full cycle of electrical and pneumovacuum tests. Roscosmos specialists will check the performance of the onboard equipment of the upper stage, as well as the tightness of its tanks and pipelines. The Fregat upper stage is designed to launch three Gonets-M communications satellites and the Skif-D demonstration satellite for broadband Internet access, the first satellite under the Sfera federal project. Upper stage “Fregat” manufactured by JSC “NPO named after S.A. Lavochkin is used as a part of medium-class space rockets and ensures the effective performance of all tasks for launching one or more spacecraft into working orbits or trajectories departing from the Earth. The entire launch process is carried out autonomously, without interference from the Earth. More than 100 successful launches have already been carried out with the help of the Fregat upper stage, more than 800 spacecraft have been put into calculated orbits. The federal project “Integrated development of space information technologies” (“Sphere”) is a project aimed at creating multi-satellite orbital constellations of promising spacecraft for communication and remote sensing of the earth.

Is this iPhone possessed by the devil? The girl took a picture of herself in front of the mirrors and discovered that the reflections in the mirrors did not match her pose.

Is this iPhone possessed by the devil The girl took

Modern mobile photography is increasingly turning into computational photography every year. And sometimes this results in very interesting incidents, as in the photo below.

Is this iPhone possessed by the devil?  The girl took a picture of herself in front of the mirrors and discovered that the reflections in the mirrors did not match her pose.

At first glance, it may seem that everything is in order with the picture. But if you look more closely, you can see that the girl who published this photo looks different in two neighboring mirrors, and besides, neither of the mirrors reflects the girl’s real pose.

Creating such an image in Photoshop or another editor is not difficult, but the caveat is that this photo was taken on an iPhone without any further processing.

The reason for this result is actually quite simple. For some reason, the iPhone algorithms mistook the girl’s reflections for other people, and since modern photos are taken by gluing together many instantly taken photographs, we see that from somewhere in this set of photos the iPhone took one girl, from somewhere else, and then I glued it all together.

The funny thing is that in the past, when there was no talk of any modern smartphones or cameras, such a photo could have been regarded as the work of the devil.
