Airbus Envision’s Flying Cars Prototype By Year End

Airbus Group  is gearing up to test a prototype for a self-piloted flying car as a way of avoiding gridlock on city roads by the end of the year, the aerospace group’s chief executive said on Monday. Airbus last year formed a division called Urban Air Mobility that is exploring concepts such as a vehicle to transport individuals or a helicopter-style vehicle that can carry multiple riders. The aim would be for people to book the vehicle using an app, similar to car-sharing schemes. “One...

Is The Milky Way Stealing Stars?

Is The Milky Way Stealing Stars?

Some of the most distant stars in the Milky Way may have been lifted from another galaxy, research released Wednesday shows. The unintended donor, known as the Sagittarius dwarf, is one of dozens of miniature galaxies that loop around the Milky Way. The Sagittarius dwarf is located about 3.4 million light-years away from Earth. Computer simulations show that Sagittarius paid a price each time it flew by its bigger neighbor. The Milky Way’s heftier gravitational tug has stripped away about one-third...

Nissan Chooses London For Self-driving Car Tests

Japanese automaker Nissan said it will conduct its first European real-world trials of self-driving vehicles in London, choosing Britain just months after it said it would build two new models in the country despite concerns over Brexit. The government has said it wants to encourage the development and testing of autonomous driving technology in Britain, helping build an industry to serve a worldwide market it reckons could be worth around 900 billion pounds ($1.1 trillion) by 2025.

Will Apple’s Supposed Jump In AR Be A Game Changer?

The super-cool and innovative tech power house Apple is rumored to have come up with some game-changing glasses which superimpose information and pictures onto reality. Dubbed AR, no other technology company has come up with the idea before and it is believed to be the brain child of Tim Cook himself. Of course, it is all top secret because other companies will steal the idea before Apple gets it to market. However, word on the street is that Apple is working with the German optics manufacturer...

Could Garnet Type Planets Support Life?

Could Garnet Type Planets Support Life?

Earth’s surface is ever-changing, with tectonic plates bumping together to cause earthquakes and volcanoes, grow mountains and replenish and redistribute elements — and that dynamic environment helps life thrive. But with a slightly different ratio of elements in the sun, the planet could have been far less forgiving. Planets are mostly made of the same stuff as their stars, and researchers have used that fact to simulate two very different rocky planets: one whose upper mantleis mostly the...

U.S. Defense Department Testing 3D Printed Drone Swarm

The Department of Defense has been testing low-cost, autonomous, micro-drones for low-altitude intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance missions. The drones, dubbed Perdix, operate as a swarm and are not individually pre-programmed. Instead, they act as a collective organism with one distributed brain for decision-making, the DOD said in a statement on Monday. “Because every Perdix communicates and collaborates with every other Perdix, the swarm has no leader and can gracefully adapt to...

Astronomers To Focus More On Alpha Centauri Seeking New Planets

Breakthrough Initiatives, a private organization that’s dedicated to looking for life elsewhere in the universe, has enlisted the help of a massive telescope in Chile to search for planets around one of the nearest star systems to our sun, officials announced today. Earlier this year, scientists announced the discovery of a potentially rocky planet orbiting the nearest star to the sun, Proxima Centauri; the planet orbits in a region where its surface temperature might be right to host liquid...

European Automakers Look To Challenge Tesla’s Dominance

Europe’s powerhouse automakers are rallying the full force of the continent’s industrial prowess to build a network of ultra-fast charging stations as they look to stoke demand for electric cars and break Tesla’s stranglehold on the market. BMW, Volkswagen, Ford and Daimler plan to build about 400 next-generation charging stations in Europe that can reload an electric car in minutes instead of hours. The long time it takes to charge batteries is one of the main disadvantages of...

Have Astronomers Found A New Way To Search For E.T.?

A newly proposed technique could make it possible to search for life on alien planets much sooner than scientists had expected.   Earlier this year, scientists discovered a planet orbiting the nearest star to Earth’s own sun. Although relatively little is known about this newly discovered planet, which was dubbed Proxima b, evidence suggests it’s possible that it has the right conditions to support life. Of course, scientists are eager to look for signs of life on Proxima b (and members...
