Space Drone Heads to Mars in 2021, Happy Mothers Day!

This is super cool! I was wondering how long it would take them to get around to this. I mean everything about a flying drone on Mars makes sense. It can travel farther, faster and take areal shots of the ground, all things the regular rover can't. In combination they will be able to explore so much more.

I'm not going to take credit for the idea, but in my short film, the rover robot I built has two separate drones that detach from it to explore ground, water and air. 

In Nasa's defense, I think we are just reaching a new era of technology that creates this type of drone usefulness to be able accomplish this task. After all, mine are working earthbound toy robots.

When NASA's Mars 2020 rover touches down on the Red Planet in February 2021, it  will contain something never seen on another planet. Nasa has been working on this for over four years of design, and testing. The Mars copter is an, autonomous rotorcraft about the size of an orange and it weighing less than 4 lbs (1.8 kg). It has the potential to revolutionize the study of other planets in deep space exploration. Check out the video below to see it in action.

The Predator Teaser is here!

Hell yeah! It's about time. I am seriously looking forward to this movie. Check out the teaser below. 

Computer Simulation suggest 68 percent of the universe does not exist!

We're talking about the space in between space. Our observable universe has holes in it, but what is in those holes is the question. Dark energy has never been directly observed, and can only be studied through its effects on other objects. Its properties and existence are still purely theoretical, making it a placeholder plug for holes in current models.

The mysterious force was first put forward as a driver of the universe's accelerated expansion in the 1990s, based on the observation of Type Ia supernovae. Sometimes called "standard candles," these bright spots are known to shine at a consistent peak brightness, and by measuring the brightness of that light by the time it reaches Earth, astronomers are able to figure out just how far away the object is.

This research was instrumental in spreading acceptance of the idea that dark energy is accelerating the expansion of the universe, and it earned the scientists involved the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2011. But other studies have questioned the validity of that conclusion, and some researchers are trying to develop a more accurate picture of the cosmos with software that can better handle all the wrinkles of the general theory of relativity.

According to the new study from Eötvös Loránd University in Hungary and the University of Hawaii, the discrepancy that dark energy was "invented" to fill might have arisen from the parts of the theory that were glossed over for the sake of simplicity. The researchers set up a computer simulation of how the universe formed, based on its large-scale structure. That structure apparently takes the form of "foam," where galaxies are found on the thin walls of each bubble, but large pockets in the middle are mostly devoid of both normal and dark matter.

The team simulated how gravity would affect matter in this structure and found that, rather than the universe expanding in a smooth, uniform manner, different parts of it would expand at different rates. Importantly, though, the overall average rate of expansion is still consistent with observations, and points to accelerated expansion. The end result is what the team calls the Avera model.

Vintage Control Rooms and Stations, why not?

Here is a small collection of vintage control rooms from various countries. You can learn to either use them, repair them or design them if you stay in school and love technology.

Everyone in this room seems to be in lab coats so they are smart, very smart. This entire room probably uses less computing power than an iphone now.

I am going to have to include one of these in my next comic book story just because they are so freakin cool to look at. Seriously, it's not like there is one big button that says "Start Here" It's just amazing to think that someone was trained for a very long time how to use this.

We have a new trailer coming soon.

First look at Sci-Fi Horror Nightflyers by George R.R. Martin

The Nightflyers setting is about as far from Westeros as you can get. The original book is about a spaceship crew in search of aliens, who wind up in the middle of a deep-space bloodbath when the ship's AI computer turns on them. There are no GoT sprawling vistas or looming castles in the minute-long teaser—it's all tight, claustrophobic shots of unhappy astronauts and malfunctioning high-tech junk. 

But space setting or no, the show still seems to deliver on the one thing we've come to expect from anything George R.R. Martin-related: a ton of brutal murders.

Martin himself pops in during the clip to explain that the show is "a haunted house story on a starship" and "Psycho in space," but the thing seems more like Alien filtered through SyFy's other recent foray into prestige TV, The Expanse.
