Meet Prospero, Aquarius and SW 6010: the robots changing modern farming

I remember reading a piece about farmers using drones, and I must say I was impressed. For farmers, the transition from manned aircraft to drones is an easy choice to make. Not only are they much cheaper, but they also provide imaging tools, which can be used for detecting a variety of crop-related issues, ranging from problems with irrigation to measuring chlorophyll levels in plants. So today I want to talk about the next step in agri-tech evolution: robots. Although most modern fa...

This Giant Oil Rig Could Usher in a Radically Altered Arctic

What's orange, white, and big all over—and a potential harbinger of big changes in the Arctic if not the whole planet? The answer is Goliat, a mammoth, beer-glass-shaped, floating oil platform that’s set to become the northernmost in the world. Last week the 65,000-ton rig arrived for commissioning near the remote Norwegian town of Hammerfest. It had ridden piggyback all the way from a South Korean shipyard, more than 15,000 miles, aboard the world's largest heavy lift...

Can You Shoot Down Drones?

Robots that fly and spy on us are being put in the hands of private citizens. Drone regulations are being written by lobbyists for drone manufacturers and other companies. You’re going to wake up one day, and there’s going to be a drone outside your bedroom window writing you a ticket for sodomy. I’m not the only one who knows what’s coming. Just take a look at this crazy, gun-toting New Jersey man who shot one down that was flying over his property…   CBS ...

Drones - Natural Evolution, or Abomination?

Ask one technologist and he or she might say that lethal autonomous weapons — machines that can select and destroy targets without human intervention — are the next step in modern warfare, a natural evolution beyond today's remotely operated drones and unmanned ground vehicles. Others will decry such systems as an abomination and a threat to International Humanitarian Law (IHL), or the Law of Armed Conflict. The U.N. Human Rights Council has, for now, called for a moratorium on the ...

How astronauts survive diplomatic tensions in space

Washington — While the United States and Russia traded sanctions this week in a burgeoning crisis over Crimea, astronauts from both nations rose above the discord in their sanctuary hundreds of miles from Earth. Experts say mounting political and economic tensions between the old Cold War foes are unlikely to upset cooperation in space at the moment -- something which would be damaging to both sides. Not that talking politics is taboo aboard the International Space Station (ISS), where A...

Now Facebook Has a Drone Plan

With all his talk of better data compression and more efficient phone chips, Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s chief executive, has had a bit of trouble getting people excited about Internet.org, his ambitious plan to get everyone in the world onto the Internet. Not anymore. The web was abuzz on Tuesday after a report in TechCrunch that Facebook was in negotiations to buy a manufacturer of drones, Titan Aerospace, for about $60 million. If a deal is completed, it will ...

LVAC: Advancing the Technology Readiness Of SLS Adaptive Controls

NASA engineers demonstrated just that when they used a NASA F/A-18 aircraft recently to simulate a rocket in its early flight phase to test adaptive software for NASA's new rocket the Space Launch System (SLS), the largest, most powerful launch vehicle for deep space missions. The tests are helping engineers working on the development of the SLS at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., ensure the rocket can adjust to the environment it faces as it makes its way to space...

NASA: Mars hiding water? New gully on Red Planet holds promise of liquid H2O

Images gathered by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) reveal the formation of the giant gully on the Red Planet. In earlier images taken by the MRO, the gully was not present. The new images collected show a dip in the planet’s mid-southern latitudes, with the photos having been taken on May 25, 2013. The US space agency made note that when HiRISE photos were snapped of the area on November 5, 2010, the deep gouge could not be seen. However, NASA is still trying to figure out the main ...

Crimea Crisis Unlikely to Strain Russia US Cooperation in Space

There is a lot being said and written about Crimea crisis and how it will affect the world, especially the relationship between the United States and Russia. However, space experts believe that this is not going to have any adverse implications on the joint operation in the space arena. Experts believe that there will be equal amount of cooperation from both sides and there is no impact at all to be seen. Some of the experts also believe that although both the countries are Cold War foes, but th...
