7:05 pm
have heard is that the flight data recorder has been found and of course this is crucial for investigators in trying to work out what happened on board that plane this is taking on national significance here we have condolences coming from the kremlin from by the way putin and also from the prime minister as well dmitri medvedev but he made putin is supposed to be meeting the palestinian leader mahmoud abbas to morrow in sochi now he has canceled that trip to sort. the meeting with mahmoud abbas is now going to be taking place in moscow instead. and of course it is very early at this point to. look at what the cause of the crash might have been but there have been some reports that site possible well a technical problem and some communication with the pilot that he might have asked

to land before before obviously things played out the way they did yeah i mean there have been numerous reports coming out over the course of the last few hours indicating difference things now one of them was that this plane could have crashed into a helicopter operated by the russian postal service well that was fairly quickly dismissed by the russian post postal services or they didn't actually have any any helicopters there could tooth something like that the facts that this plane seems to be burning when it came down will be something of course that the the investigators are looking into the fact that it pretty much disintegrates it will be something of course that the investigators will be looking at. it could have been the weather the weather has been bad here today but it's not atrociously bad so i mean certainly it's weather that i have experienced when i've been taking off
7:07 pm
on previous flights here in russia our experience worse but the weather could have played a plate of facts of the if the investigators are trying to find the grounds crew at domodedovo airport that predicts this particular flight they're also trying to speak to the air traffic controllers as well all of these people might be able to give the investigation some clue as to what happened all right thanks very much roy hallums bringing us all the latest on that russian plane crash understand no survivors from that henri thank you very much. israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu has vowed to continue military operations inside syria a day after israeli warplanes carried out a series of strikes there now senior who says israel is determined not to accept on

7:28 pm
university of california at berkeley is home to one of the six teams hoping to create within four years a device that can read and control one million neurons right now we can only watch one hundred at a time our goal is to be able to see that many neurons every one of them individually and not only to be able to watch what they do as you do an m.r.i. but to be able to play back to them the patterns of activity in space and in time so that you could actually reconstitute and synthesize the experience of the real world and thereby replace something that is missing because of an injury this military funded program could replace lost senses in wounded soldiers but could also put entirely new senses into healthy soldiers if it works the project will be a world changing leap for example while we were developing this proposal we had a few meetings sort of saying we can't do this this is physically impossible will
7:29 pm
never get there our goal is to take like a microscope something like this and squash it down really tiny so it can fit on the head of a mouse while it's running around that this is one of our first prototype cohen working on math it can turn a low grade two d. picture of the brain into your useful three d. images so they can take think it's like this. process. to a life you have them we can create custom patterns and should light exactly where we want at the right moment for and post-doctoral research or nickel up the gaar is building the system that will convert real world experiences into man the directs lasers to light up individual neurons so here is a movie casablanca. this is what you have to turn that into for it to then be shown on the brain and not on that wow you did find on the site and you tell me which neurons you want to activate and we will at the exact time give the exact amount of
7:30 pm
light that's required to activate in your own the project could rebuild soldiers or eventually give them enhanced abilities on the battlefield by the way if it works we will have crossed into a new ethical and medical world a world where we can read human thoughts and implant new ones jake aboard al-jazeera berkeley california. let's take another look at the day's top stories now a passenger plane has crashed in russia killing all seventy one people on board the sars have allan's plane came down shortly after taking off from the capital moscow . chalons has mall. because of the heavy snow fall in moscow and the regions over the last week or so it makes the operation on the ground very very
