As drones become cheaper, more powerful, and more accessible, it is only a matter of time before everyone gets one of their own, whether it be just for entertainment purposes like how one might approach R.C. cars and helicopters, or professional purposes when it is used for filming or photography, or commercial purposes where it could be used for deliveries.With so many drones potentially in the sky, it is only […]
We do know that NASA has launched their UFO in the past, but this does not mean that it is something that no one else is interested in a year down the road. In fact, it would definitely be nice to be able to see another set of tests of the NASA UFO being broadcasted (live or delayed, it does not matter), as the next launch attempt happens to be […]
NASA’s chief scientist Ellen Stofan has a rather outlandish claim – although I am quite sure that many others would think otherwise and say that it is realistic. Just what is this particular claim of Stofan’s? Depending on how you look at it, she did share that “I think we’re going to have strong indications of life beyond Earth within a decade, and I think we’re going to have definitive […]
While planes are probably the most efficient way of traveling great distances, they’re not exactly the most eco-friendly modes of transportation either. However both Boeing and NASA are hoping to change that with the testing of the Boeing ecoDemonstrator (a 757) where the plane is expected to go on a series of flights.What makes these flights so significant is that the plane will be testing out NASA’s experimental fuel-saving techniques. […]
NASA has revealed more information about its Asteroid Redirect Mission (ARM), which is no longer attempting to capture an entire asteroid. The agency has now decided that a non-crewed spacecraft will be travelling to one of the three candidate asteroids in the year 2020. When the craft arrives in 2022, it will then employ robotic arms to pick and protect a small boulder from the asteroid, and spend various years […]
For a moment it looked as though Google Glass could be the way of the future and certainly there are plenty of possibilities surrounding its technology. Unfortunately Google decided to put an end to the current program but that does not mean that the concept is dead. Hardly. In fact NASA has recently teamed up with the Osterhout Design Group in San Francisco in a bid to develop smart glasses […]
Mars rovers have collected a lot of data about the Red Planet but its not like they don’t run into problems up there. The surface of Mars is extremely tricky to navigate and this can make it tough for the rover to travel long distances in a Martian day. The solution being proposed by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory involves using an autonomous drone dubbed as the Mars Helicopter. It would […]
Nissan of Japan alongside NASA will be pitting their brains together to work on an utopian dream that some companies like Google have already have an interest in – self-driving cars. Hailing from Yokohama, Japan, Nissan alongside NASA’s engineers at Ames Research Center at Moffett Field, California, will team up in a five-year research-and-development partnership for autonomous vehicle systems – and if all goes well, such advancements can be applied […]
NASA does have some pretty cool toys that they have unveiled in the past, in addition to other events that have marked pivotal moments of history in the lives of humankind. Having said that, here we are with a brand new robot that will offer the flexibility of a yogi so that this unique robot will be able to be flexible enough for it to work in dangerous areas such […]
We have landed a man on the Moon decades ago and since that day we have not looked back. Space exploration is a topic of great debate and fuels our curiosity about reaching out to planets closest to Earth. NASA often talks about sending a human mission to Mars and this week it is conducting a flight test that is very well going to be the first step in that direction. […]
It has taken quite some time, but technology giant Google can now lay claim to owning an airfield that they can make use of, at least for a prolonged period of time. Why do we say so? Google’s very own Planetary Ventures wing has decided to sign a lease with NASA which would enable it to manage the Moffett Federal Airfield.
NASA has had its fair share of robots, or rovers, sent over to the Red Planet in the past, and it does not look as though the facility is about to slow down in its efforts anytime soon. In fact, NASA’s Maven spacecraft has reportedly arrived at Mars on late Sunday after completing its 442 million mile journey which kicked off close to one year ago.
When it comes to time capsules, they can prove to be worth exploring, especially when you take into consideration how time passes us by so quickly, it is nice to have something physical from the past to refer to many decades down the road. NASA intends to enlist public participation in their upcoming Asteroid Time Capsule, where you can send your tweets to space as well as share your Instagram […]
NASA is not all about rovers running around on the moon as well as on the Red Planet, you know, as the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has begun to work on a new kind of robot – or rather, robots, that could actually make their way across distant planets one fine day in the future as part of a space exploration expedition. Given the nickname “swarmies”, these […]
