A NASA rocket is going to blast colored clouds into space — here’s how to see them

Posted by in category: space

Sat 17 June…NASA rocket to blast colored clouds into space…similar to our 2017 SpaceApps Groups Idea :…er/project

  • NASA is launching a rocket that will create colorful clouds in space.
  • The rocket launch and clouds may be visible as far away as New York City.
  • Such clouds will eventually be used to probe two big holes in Earth’s magnetic shield, called cusps.
  • The launch will be live-streamed by NASA Wallops Flight Facility.

NASA is about to launch a rocket that will puff out highly visible clouds of red and blue-green vapor into space.

The rocket was supposed to launch on May 31, but bad weather and poor visibility pushed the mission back to Saturday, June 17, with a liftoff time between 9:05 p.m. and 9:20 p.m. EDT.

LEAF Panel: How to Promote Longevity? ft. Drs. Aubrey de Grey, Alexandra Stolzing, Oliver Medvedik

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

On the 9th of June we teamed up with the Major Mouse Testing Program (MMTP) for a live stream longevity panel on the MMTP Facebook page. The panel included Dr. Alexandra Stolzing, Dr. Aubrey de Grey, Dr. Oliver Medvedik, MMTP coordinators Steve Hill and Elena Milova, President Keith Comito, and one of the most active contributors Alen Akhabaev. The event was one of the rewards from the MMTP campaign launched on last year.

During the first section the panelists discuss the science and progress in the field, touching upon senescent cell therapy with senolytics, its progress and limitations, stem cells therapies and other promising interventions to slow down and potentially reverse age-related damage to health.

When artificial intelligence is bad news for the boss

Posted by in categories: business, economics, information science, robotics/AI

The two academic authors from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who became the pin-up boys of the Davos crowd for their previous book on The Second Machine Age (2014), do a neat job of scanning the technological horizon and highlighting significant landmarks. This is a clear and crisply written account of machine intelligence, big data and the sharing economy. But McAfee and Brynjolfsson also wisely acknowledge the limitations of their futurology and avoid over-simplification. No one can really have much idea how the business world is going to evolve or predict the precise interplay between all these fast-changing forces.

A new book by the authors of ‘The Second Machine Age’ suggests that digital disruption is coming to the corner office.

400 Burger Per Hour Robot Will Put Teenagers Out Of Work

Posted by in categories: employment, robotics/AI

Just a quick heads up, high school students. You might want to save your job application efforts for retail gigs, because the fast food space is about to be invaded by robots.

We already showed you an autonomous grillmaster that can monitor and flip an entire grill full of patties. Today’s bot is even more versatile. Not only can it cook the patty, but it can also dice up fresh toppings like tomatoes, pickles, and onions… and it can even deftly stack everything on a toasted bun.

This autonomous marvel was designed and built by Momentum Machines, who just wrapped up a successful funding round to the tune of $18 million. It’s pretty clear why they attracted so much cash.

China’s Micius satellite sets distance record for quantum entanglement in space

Posted by in categories: encryption, quantum physics, space

Chinese researchers report that they’ve set a new distance record for quantum teleportation through space, the phenomenon that Albert Einstein once scoffed at as “spooky action at a distance.”

The technology isn’t yet ready for prime time, but eventually it could open the way for a new type of unbreakable encryption scheme based on the weirdness of quantum physics.
