Where to get the GAIA 160-Hybrid drone: https://www.foxtechfpv.com/gaia-160-hybrid-hexacopter-arf-combo.html

We did it!!!!!!
Broke the Flight Time Record!!!!!
This is a historic moment for UAV drone.
Foxtech GAIA 160-Hybrid has made aviation history by completing the 100km crossing sea bay flight in 180 minutes.
On 9th September, Foxtech team successfully completed the crossing sea bay flight with GAIA 160-Hybrid from changdao to dalian. GAIA 160-Hybrid took off from a yacht in changdao and landed on a coast of Dalian, the total range is 100km, this is the longest single flight of a hexacopter in the World! Foxtech GAIA 160-Hybrid hexacopter broke the flight time record!
FOXTECH GAIA 160-Hybrid hexacopter has an onboard 2000w generator that offers plenty of power to 6 very high efficiency motors to ensure a long flight time. It is installed with redundancy flight controllers, three GPS and a full range of optional equipments like RTK GPS, 20km datalink, parachute, secondary radio control to make this drone very reliable and very safe.
Foxtech team arrived in changdao on 5 September, but due to the heavy wind and bad weather conditions the flight was actually delayed, we have to stop the mission and wait for another good weather to try again. Finally, Foxtech team was ready to make their attempt on 9 September. Departing from a yacht in changdao, weather was cooperative and all was going well.
Foxtech GAIA 160-Hybrid successfully took off from the yacht, with GPS guidance and automated flight, the drone could fly independently. And the drone was accompanied by a yacht staying within a range of 500 meters, so that our operator could control the aircraft at any time. During the flight, the wind was rising, force 7 grades, the wind speed is about 17m/s. But with the robust stability of GAIA 160-Hybrid and rich experience of our technicist, GAIA 160-Hybrid overcame the adverse weather conditions, and just over 3 hours after takeoff, GAIA 160-Hybrid landed safely in a coast of Dalian.
The journey was filled with challenges, because any type of adverse wind will have a
severe impact on the drone. So this time the successful flight dramatically proved the.
reliability and potentials of GAIA 160-Hybrid, proved that Foxtech GAIA 160-Hybrid is a high-performance flying platform which is able to adapt many complicated environment, especially the strong breeze and gale weather. A longer flight time coupled with good stability of GAIA 160-Hybrid opens a wide range of new commercial possibilities for businesses such as inspection of offshore platforms, search and rescue, power line inspection etc.

Tesla Pickup Truck Surfaces As Rad SpaceX Off-Roader On Mars

Posted by in categories: space travel, sustainability

What happens when you combine a Tesla pickup truck with a bit of off-road SpaceX flair? The answer is in this Tesla truck render.

If the render looks familiar it’s because we’ve seen a similar Tesla truck render from the same render artist before. However, this SpaceX off-road version didn’t register on our radar the first time around.

Police hijack a botnet and remotely kill 850,000 malware infections

Posted by in categories: cryptocurrencies, cybercrime/malcode

In a rare feat, French police have hijacked and neutralized a massive cryptocurrency mining botnet controlling close to a million infected computers.

The notorious Retadup malware infects computers and starts mining cryptocurrency by sapping power from a computer’s processor. Although the malware was used to generate money, the malware operators easily could have run other malicious code, like spyware or ransomware. The malware also has wormable properties, allowing it to spread from computer to computer.

Since its first appearance, the cryptocurrency mining malware has spread across the world, including the U.S., Russia, and Central and South America.

Quantum Darwinism spotted in diamond spins

Posted by in categories: evolution, quantum physics

A handful of spins in diamond have shone new light on one of the most enduring mysteries in physics – how the objective reality of classical physics emerges from the murky, probabilistic quantum world. Physicists in Germany and the US have used nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centres in diamond to demonstrate “quantum Darwinism”, whereby the “fittest” states of a system survive and proliferate in the transition between the quantum and classical worlds.

In the past, physicists tended to view the classical and quantum worlds as being divided by an abrupt barrier that makes a fundamental distinction between the familiar macroscopic (classical) and the unfamiliar microscopic (quantum) realms. But in recent decades that view has changed. Many experts now think that the transition is gradual, and that the definite classical states we measure come from probabilistic quantum states progressively (although very quickly) losing their coherence as they become ever more entangled with their environment.

Quantum Darwinism, put forward by Wojciech Zurek of Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, argues that the classical states we perceive are robust quantum states that can survive entanglement during decoherence. His theoretical framework posits that the information about these states will be duplicated many times and disseminated throughout the environment. Just as natural selection tells us that the fittest individuals in a species must survive to reproduce in great numbers and so go on to shape evolution, the fittest quantum states will be copied and appear classical. This redundancy means that many individual observers will measure any given state as having the same value, so ensuring objective reality.

Confirmed 34 People Missing, 5 Rescued in Diving Boat Fire

Posted by in category: futurism

The U.S. Coast Guard stated in a press conference 34 people are missing or unaccounted as search and rescue recovery efforts are currently underway.

There was a total of 39 people on board with 34 people sleeping below deck and 5 crew members. The Coast Guard confirmed the five crew members were awake at the time of the fire and jumped from the boat before being rescued by a Good Samaritan vessel named Grape Escape.

The Coast Guard confirmed the Conception boat was anchored 20 yards off Platt’s Harbor on the northside of Santa Cruz island. The shoreline of the island is being searched for any survivors.
