World’s second vertical forest tower will rise in Switzerland

Posted by in categories: habitats, sustainability

Stefano Boeri Architetti won the bid just one year after completing their first acclaimed vertical forest, or Bosco Verticale, one year ago in Milan. Like its predecessor, the forested tower planned for Lausanne will be covered by shrubs and plants, and will add 3,000 square meters of greenery along its 117-meter-tall facade. The new tower is named “La Tour des Cedres” after the architects’ vision to install over 100 cedar trees on the structure.

Why NASA’s EmDrive Might Be the Most Exciting Breakthrough in Tech Right Now

Posted by in categories: energy, physics, space travel

Earthlings, meet the EmDrive, the rocket of the future.

Allegedly, Eagleworks Labs at NASA’s Johnson Space Center has defied a Newtonian law of physics and created a futuristic warp drive. If it’s real, it could be the most exciting breakthrough in space-travel technology to date: an engine that gets from point A to point B without using any fuel — and does it crazy fast.

Despite months of skepticism, our nation’s aerospace agency wants you to believe its latest findings are legit. Recent studies purportedly prove the EmDrive’s authenticity. Even NASA researcher Paul March hopped on a (non-NASA-affiliated) spaceflight forum to chat about the agency’s findings.

NASA is about to announce key findings from its Mars mission – watch live right here

Posted by in categories: internet, mobile phones, space

NASA’s announcement in late September that it found evidence of flowing water on Mars was only the beginning of the revelations that will be the result of its current Mars mission. The organization’s exploratory mission carried out by the Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) spacecraft began with the intention of examining Mars’ atmosphere to an extent that had never before been possible, and now NASA is about to reveal what it is calling key science findings on the “fate Mars’ atmosphere.”

NASA is being very tight-lipped about its upcoming announcements, which are scheduled to be made beginning at 2:00 p.m. EST / 11:00 a.m. PST on Thursday, November 5th. If you’re interested in NASA’s current mission though — and you certainly should be — you’ll be able to find out what NASA has in store for us the very same moment that the rest of the world does, because NASA will broadcast its special news conference live on the web.
