The Physics of a 200 MPH Hyperloop Test Run

In Education, Emerging Technology, Government, Legal by Wired NewsLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords: , ,

The hyperloop, Elon Musk's idea to make a high-speed transit system for people, has been an exercise in, well, hype. Despite a roster of companies and piles of VC money dedicated to realizing the idea—in which pods travel through a nearly airless tube at supersonic speeds—no human has taken a ride to date. But they're not the only ones on the case: Musk is holding an ongoing competition for (mostly student) teams to build and test their designs. Last weekend, 700 members of 25 teams gathered in Hawthorne, Califor... Read More

SpaceX Will Lose Millions on Its Taiwanese Satellite Launch

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 Ryan Staake and Patrick Piemonte first worked together, they helped you get around: Both were interface designers at Apple, with Piemonte working specifically on the iPhone's map technology. Now, nearly a decade later, the two are working together again—but this time, instead of helping you get around, they want to use the power of augmented reality to appreciate the hidden things around you. That's the idea behind Mirage, an iOS app the duo and a small team just released. It's not the first AR app available in the App Store, and it certainly won't be the last, but it may well be the only one to marry augmented reality's hidden-world appeal with social media's shareable, re-mixable content.

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

SpaceX has a Roomba-like robot but no one knows what it really is

SpaceX fans are extremely curious about a new robot that keeps appearing on SpaceX's drone ship "Of Course I Still Love You." Some are calling it the "Roomba" robot while others insist it should be called "Optimus Prime." There are theories as to what this robot is for, but there's no confirmation from SpaceX itself, yet. We reached out to SpaceX for more details about this mysterious robot, but it was unable to give us any information. However, we can tell you that SpaceX only refers to the machine as a robot and does not assign it any other name (like Roomba or Optimus Prime).For this video, we connected with some of SpaceX's fans.

Matthieu Komorowski wanted to be an astronaut. Still does. The French-born anesthesiologist, currently getting a PhD at Imperial College London, applied to the European Space Agency in 2008. But he knows his chances are limited. “Being basically a medical resident I didn’t get very far in the selection,” Komorowski says. “But I’ve been working on building up my skills.” Among those skills: administering anesthesia for surgery. And as Komorowski found when he started looking at the literature on space medicine, that might be more helpful than it sounds. Of all the concerns about astronaut safety and health, traumatic injury is the one that worries people the most. It has the biggest potential i... Read More
