OceanGate plans an expedition to 3D scan the Titanic

Seattle-based OceanGate Inc. this week announced plans for a manned expedition to study the R.M.S. Titanic, the world’s most famous shipwreck. Fewer than 200 people have ever visited the Titanic since it sank in April 1912 according to historians’ estimates. To put that in perspective, more people have scaled the summit of Mt. Everest, or flown in space.

The new expedition, scheduled for May 2018, will mark the first time a team has approached the wreck since 2005. Imaging and navigation technology have advanced significantly since then, and since the famous 1995 expedition when director James Cameron captured footage of the Titanic for his eventual blockbuster.

OceanGate CEO and co-founder Stockton Rush says his company is hoping, along with its tech and research partners, to document the decay of the ship and to create high-definition, 3-D images of objects underwater there that were never possible before.

Don’t fear superintelligent AI

New tech spawns new anxieties, says scientist and philosopher Grady Booch, but we don’t need to be afraid an all-powerful, unfeeling AI. Booch allays our worst (sci-fi induced) fears about superintelligent computers by explaining how we’ll teach, not program, them to share our values. Rather than worry about an unlikely existential threat, he urges us to consider how artificial intelligence will enhance human life.

Awesome short video-resurrected B29–a time to recall

Received this great video from a friend!

GRANDKIDS, PARENTS & GREAT GRANDPARENTS – a time to recall about 75 yrs ago
 

This’ll put a smile on your face

This is way different than many of our shared stories.   This one is about a famous airplane, the B-29.   It was used in World War II (1940’s) …. so this plane is about 75 years old give or take.   This is the last one remaining …. a gentlemen found it and restored it back to almost new.

When I got to the end of the video … I cried; watch for an elderly lady named Rosie, Watching this is like reliving part of the history of our country.   Think about it … our whole country was at war and virtually every man and woman was doing something to help.

In time you will come to understand more about war …. about how awful it is … about how necessary it is — SOMETIMES.

  Enjoy this story …. I think it is an important reminder of our country’s journey to today … or our peoples’ capacity to rally to a single cause – the defense of our freedom … the defense of freedom around the world.

Some marvelous job, it flew again!

These New Robots Look Freaky But Can Do Amazing Things

Leave a comment

.

In labs around the world, robots are sprouting legs. Engineers are fine-tuning their abilities to walk, climb, and stay balanced so they can carry heavy loads or scout hazardous environments.

Just a few years ago, many of the elite robots at the DARPA Robotics Challenge struggled with simple tasks. But robots are becoming more nimble all the time, and the age of awkward, clumsy machines is receding.

Many of these impressive robots don’t look particularly humanoid — or friendly. Handle, the newest limbed robot from Boston Dynamics, has even been described as “nightmare-inducing” by company founder Mark Raibert. Others scuttle along with an unsettling resemblance to spiders, ostriches, and mammals.

But their freaky designs are meant to help these robots move about more easily, both in remote wilderness and human cityscapes. Soon, legged robots will walk among us, and their inventors are already planning how they will make our lives easier and safer. Here are a few of the newest generation of bizarre-looking but mobile robots.

How Cyborg Insects Could Save Lives and Stop Our Enemies

Between spreading illnesses, ruining crops, and infesting our homes, insects have had a long, adversarial relationship with humans. But not all insects are pests — think bees — and if scientists and engineers have their way, several more species will soon become our unwitting allies.

In labs throughout the world, researchers are hacking the brains and bodies of insects, creating so-called “biobots” that can do their bidding. Just as insects have recently been hailed as a potential solution to our impending food security crisis, the shudder-inducing creatures may also save human lives in various other ways.

For example, crawling cyborg insects could someday explore disaster zones and aid in search-and-rescue operations. By effectively surveying areas inaccessible to rescue teams, these remote-controlled insects could help find people buried under collapsed buildings. Similarly, a mass of airborne biobots could quickly search forests, canyons, and other areas for missing hikers.

Look Inside the SpaceX Capsule That Will Take Two Beyond the Moon

SpaceX has shared scant details about its newly announced plan to send private citizens on a trip around the moon late next year.

The company hasn’t disclosed the space tourists’ identities or said how much they’ll pay for the chance to buzz the moon and go far beyond before returning to Earth. Nor did SpaceX say exactly what training the tourists will undergo or how they will occupy themselves during the week or so between lift-off from Kennedy Space Center’s near Cape Canaveral, Florida and their return to Earth.

But no matter what, the tourists are in for an experience almost beyond imagining.

So says Richard Garriott, an Austin, Texas-based video game entrepreneur who in 2008 became one of only a tiny handful of private citizens to go into space when he spent 12 days in low Earth orbit aboard the International Space Station.

Amazing inventions lost through time

Science has progressed amazingly in recent years, but a handful of spectacular inventions have remained lost to knowledge. Whether it’s the Greek Fire, Roman Nanotechnology or a wonder-material desired by NASA, we’ve lost some great things along the way – these are just some of them.
