  1. It appears this may have been circulating for some time, but there is an image from the HiRISE camera from NASA that "suggests" the object in the image is alien in nature. To me it could be anything, but is one of the more interesting images I've seen that seem to fool your eyes into seeing (perhaps) something that is not there.
  2. yeah, I agree. More focus needs to be on getting away from fossil fuel dependence, refining electric and hydrogen as well. And certainly Google has demonstrated that in the very near future, automobile automation will be taking on a life of its own, somewhat literally. Movies like the forth coming reboot of Total Recall will entice though, with more cars that resemble those from Back to the Future. Its fun to dream though.
  3. This topic has been on many people's minds for years now. The dream of flying a car off the highway to avoid traffic, then lightly touching down at your destination. As this thread seems to indicate, that is still a ways off, though the company that makes the Terrafugia Transition seems to hope it is sooner than we expect. http://slashdot.org/submission/2007837/traffic-jam-ahead-no-problem-take-to-the-skies-in-your-terrafugia For about $279,000 though and sooner than we may think. I still think the vehicle of the future would take off vertically and land anywhere, not just on dedicated runways. But the whole concept brings up 200 other questions on safety and transportation issues.
  4. I thought this article was interesting and thought provoking. Has anyone else heard about this finding that humans from 1 million years ago may have used fire? http://slashdot.org/submission/2006745/did-our-ancient-ancestors-cook-1-million-years-ago
  5. Lets hope their new tests can shed some light (pun intended) on this intriguing topic
