What to expect from Elon Musk’s Mars colonization update this week

Tech News Keywords: , , , , , , , , ,

On Friday, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk will be giving a “major” update on his plans to colonize Mars during a presentation at the International Astronautical Congress in Adelaide, Australia. His talk is meant to add to the one he gave at last year’s IAC conference in Mexico, when he revealed the full architecture of his plans to send thousands of peoples to the Martian surface. This time around, it seems his speech may revolve around making the concept more feasible — mainly by scaling things down. Musk has only dropped a few hints about what he’ll talk about this week, but we can probably expect the announcement of a smaller launch vehicle, as well as ideas for how to pay for the high costs of developin...

(Reuters) — Dubai staged a test flight on Monday for what it said would soon be the world’s first drone taxi service under an ambitious plan by the United Arab Emirates city to lead the Arab world in innovation. The flying taxi developed by German drone firm Volocopter resembles a small, two-seater helicopter cabin topped by a wide hoop studded with 18 propellers. It was unmanned for its maiden test run in a ceremony arranged for Dubai Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed. Meant to fly without remote control guidance and with a maximum flight duration of 30 minutes, it comes with plenty of fail-safes in case of trouble: back-up batteries, rotors and, for a worst case scenario, a couple of parachutes....

This week, all eyes are on Saturn and, more specifically, the Cassini spacecraft which circled the planet one last time before crashing into its murky surface on Friday. It left behind thousands of images, including some final shots like the photo of Saturn's clouds near the terminator, which is the boundary between night and day. It also took the awkwardly named "goodbye-kiss" image of Titan. The moon's gravity gave Cassini one final push around Saturn before its dramatic end. Much less tragic is the Juno spacecraft now on its eighth flyby of Jupiter. It offered a striking vision of the planet's spiraling clouds in a series of color-enhanced image... Read More

SpaceX is poised to fire off a fresh Falcon 9 rocket on Thursday, delivering a comically tiny payload for Taiwan’s National Space Organization. At 1,047 pounds, the Formosat-5 Earth-observing satellite is almost light enough for a human to deadlift—but it’ll launch atop a Falcon 9 rocket with 50 times more capacity. The overkill is thanks to a years-long delay, and SpaceX will take a substantial financial hit to make good on a contract it signed in 2010. Elon Musk’s spaceflight company will attempt to launch the rocket from Vandenberg Air Force base in California during ... Read More

When Monday’s total solar eclipse gets under way, tracing an arc of temporary night across the nation, it will come as a profound relief. “Mr. Trump Makes a Spectacle of Himself,” ran the headline on a Times editorial earlier this week; only a greater spectacle, generated by some larger and far more marvellous force, might allow us to briefly look away. The eclipse fits our historical moment disconcertingly well. It will be American from beginning to end. It starts over the Pacific Ocean at around dawn; becomes visible in Oregon at around nine ...

On a Thursday afternoon in June, a 17-foot-tall rocket motor—looking like something a dedicated amateur might fire off—stood fire-side-up on the salty desert of Promontory, Utah. Over the loudspeakers, an announcer counted down. And with the command to fire, quad cones of flame flew from the four inverted nozzles and grew toward the sky. As the smoke rose, it cast a four-leaf clover of shadow across the ground. This was a test of the launch abort motor, a gadget built to carry NASA astronauts away from a rocket gone wrong.

The spiral galaxy NGC 5949 is categorized as a dwarf galaxy because of its less-than-average amount of stars. NGC 5949 is also only 44 million light-years from Earth, making it ideal for observation. Astronomers are excited to study starburst galaxy IC 10, a tiny galaxy with prolific star formation. The Chandra X-ray Observatory has discovered more than a dozen x-ray binary star systems in IC 10, which is when a black hole or neutron star feeds off a massive, young star. Eventually, the star will collapse in an enormous supernova, leaving a pair of black holes, neutron stars, or a mixture of both. If the two objects are close enough, they create gravitational waves which will cause the two to merge. ... Read More

Catching Up With Dawn, the Massive Spacecraft Exploring the Asteroid Belt

It’d be hard to invent a more Star Wars-esque spacecraft than Dawn. It’s 65 feet from tip to tip. It’s exploring the asteroid belt. And it’s got an ion drive, for Pete’s sake. But Dawn also has a serious job to do. Launched in 2007, it’s been investigating Ceres and Vesta, two mysterious protoplanets in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. These are smallish, truly ancient bodies, remnants of the early solar system (protoplanets being bodies that formed earl... Read More

A Total Solar Eclipse Feels Really Really Weird

In Business, Events, Government, Science & Nature by Wired NewsLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords: , , , , , , , , ,

Have you ever witnessed a total solar eclipse? Usually, when I give a lecture, only a couple of people in an audience of several hundred raise their hands when I ask that question. A few others respond tentatively, saying, “I think I saw one.” That’s like a woman saying, “I think I once gave birth.” What these people are remembering is some long-ago partial solar eclipse. These are quite common. They occur every few years in various places across the globe. But believe me, if you’ve seen a total solar eclipse—when the moon passes directly between the sun and the earth—you’ll never forget it. Part of what makes a total eclipse so breathtaking has to do with invisible light. During ... Read More

The Apple ARKit Proves the Future of Augmented Reality Will Be on Your Phone

In Business, Education, Gaming, Government, Mobile Technology, Science & Nature by Wired NewsLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords: , , , , , , , , ,

The AR revolution will come not with a bang, but a tape measure. At least, that seems to be the lesson so far from ARKit, Apple’s new augmented-reality platform. ARKit lets developers build AR apps—which integrate digital experiences into the physical world via iPhone or iPad, a la Pokemon Go. Those apps will be available to consumers when iOS 11 arrives in September. But developers have started tinkering—creating tools that let you see how furniture fits in a room, or quickly calculate the area of your kitchen. Compared to the likes of Magic Leap or Google Glass, these apps are simple, almost trivial. But that smallness might be precisely what makes them so potentially huge. Matthew Miesniek... Read More

Hypnotized by Elon Musk’s Hyperloop

Tech News Keywords: , , , ,

In March, 1934, Modern Mechanix reported on an unusually ambitious plan to solve Manhattan’s traffic and housing woes. Norman Sper, a “noted publicist and engineering scholar,” proposed to “plug up” the Hudson River with a pair of dams at either end of the island. This would reroute the water around Harlem and the East Side, exposing the riverbed between New York and New Jersey. The resulting dry land, once filled in, would nearly double the city’s size and create a gold mine in future real estate. Sper called his vision “the world’s eighth wonder.” But, like m... Read More
