What do you do if you’re a cash-strapped Uber driver looking to make a few extra bucks without putting in extra hours? Why, you sell goods to passengers, of course. And that is exactly what New York-based Cargo is setting out to enable with its in-car commerce platform for the ride-hailing industry. Cargo partners with brands across confectionery, electronics, cosmetics, and more to offer riders access to goods such as chocolate bars and USB cables. The company sends a transparent case to drivers, along with the goods, which they place in the vehicle’s front compartment, allowing passengers to see at a glance what’s on offer.

NASA Just Proved It Can Navigate Space Using Pulsars. Where to Now?

In Gaming, Government, Science & Nature by Wired NewsLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords: , , , , ,

Half a century ago, astronomers observed their first pulsar: a dead, distant, ludicrously dense star that emitted pulses of radiation with remarkable regularity. So consistent was the object's signal that astronomers jokingly nicknamed it LGM-1, short for "little green men." It wasn't long before scientists detected more signals like LGM-1. That decreased the odds that these pulses of radiation were the work of intelligent extraterrestrials. But the identification of other pulsars presented another possibility: Perhaps objects like LGM-1 could be used to navigate future missions to deep space. With the right sensors and navigational algorithms, the thinking went, a spacecraft could autonomously dete... Read More

Some say the tiny satellites could even fend off an asteroid attack.But there’s still one big problem: CubeSats can’t move once they’re in space -- which limits their survival and makes them dangerous.Paulo Lozano, director of the Space Propulsion Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is leading the way in the development of mini thrusters for CubeSats.

A Chinese space station is falling to Earth next year — but it’s the last thing to worry about

In Business, Government, Science & Nature by The VergeLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords: , ,

Sometime in late March of next year, a Chinese space station named Tiangong-1 is going to fall back down to Earth — and some big pieces may survive the reentry. The module’s descent has caused a bit of concern about debris raining form the sky. But in reality, a falling space station is the last thing anyone should be worried about. Satellites and spacecraft fall to Earth all the time. Vehicles in lower orbits get bombarded by small particles in the planet’s upper atmosphere, and that eventually drags them downward. But usually, these falling objects are small enough or shaped in such a way that they’ll burn up safely while re-entering the atmosphere. The problem with Tiangong-1 ... Read More

A vast, gray expanse loomed just a few hundred meters below as Neil Armstrong peered out his tiny window. From inside the spidery lunar lander, a fragile cocoon with walls only about as thick as construction paper, the Apollo 11 commander finally had a clear view of where the on-board computer had directed him to land. He did not like what he saw there. A big crater. Boulders strewn all around. A death trap.... Read More

Saturn's rings sure are pretty, and Matt Damon’s been to Mars, but our eight-planet solar system may not be that special after all. Today, scientists using data from NASA’s Kepler spacecraft announced they’d discovered an eighth planet orbiting a star 2,500 light years away. They’ve named the planet Kepler-90i after the star it orbits, Kepler-90, which is slightly hotter and more massive than our sun. “This discovery of an eighth planet ties Kepler-90 with our own solar system for having the most known planets,” said NASA astrophysicist Paul Hertz during a press conference about the...

The astronaut Scott Kelly was calling from the International Space Station; he had read my book about the end of the Space Shuttle era, and he wanted to talk about his own attempts to portray the personal and emotional meanings of spaceflight in a journal he was keeping during his mission. We talked a long time that day—about Russian literature, our shared love of Tom Wolfe’s “The Right Stuff,” what the inside of a spacesuit smells like, and the food on the I.S.S. ... Read More

The Last Guardian wasn’t the most technically accomplished game of last year, or the best designed. But it was one of the most memorable, thanks in large part to its star, a towering bird-cat-dog hybrid named Trico. Playing as a young boy, you built a powerful and lasting relationship with the creature, which felt more like a real living thing than anything I’d previously encountered in a virtual world. I still get chills thinking about the first time we met, and a little weepy when I remember the way the game ended.

President Donald Trump is officially directing NASA to send astronauts back to the Moon, as a pit stop to eventually send people to Mars.

The signing appropriately coincides with the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 17 landing, the last time humans ever landed on the Moon.

When he was aboard the Space Shuttle in the 1980s, NASA astronaut Bill Shepherd believed space exploration would soon become a regular part of daily life. “I always thought we should go as fast and as far as our vision takes us,” Shepherd said on Long Island last week. “Mankind has always sought to explore and we haven’t done great exploration in a long time.” There is evidence the time to explore again is approaching for Long Island. If you were dropped here from somewhere else, or born after a certain time, you may not fully comprehend Long Island’s contribution to aviation. It’s a high-flying business story of daring and entrepreneurship that took mankind from flying in motorized kites to land... Read More

The surface features that NASA thought were made up of liquid water may actually be flowing grains of sand instead, according to new research from the US Geological Survey.

In 1986, young Black Brooklynite Spike Lee made his first feature-length film with a small budget and big aspirations.

With its black-and-white polish and its documentary-style storytelling, She’s Gotta Have It the film gave the mainstream world a glimpse of Black urban life. Now, a new Netflix series has Lee rebooting his 30-year-old storyline, viewing She’s Gotta Have It through a modern lens. But can Lee in 2017 be as groundbreaking as he was 30 years ago?
