A plan to send humans to Martian orbit was outlined by members of Lockheed Martin during the Humans to Mars Summit and, at the same time, the U.S. House of Representatives Space Subcommittee in Washington, DC. The plan calls for a laboratory around t
Orbital ATK unveiled a proposal this week for the creation of a four-person lunar orbit habitat which could be sent to the Moon as early as 2020. The outpost would utilize a modified version of the company's Cygnus cargo ship as well as NASA's Or
Another round of CubeSats, including eight Planet Lab Dove Satellites, were deployed from the International Space Station (ISS) by the Expedition 47 crew. A total of 17 tiny spacecraft were deployed from NanoRacks CubeSat Deployer (NRCSD) at the end
The China National Space Administration (CNSA) presented several slides of the design of its future space station, called Tiangong 3--meaning "Heavenly Palace" in Chinese. The station is expected to be built between 2018 and 2022.
It is hard to miss the warnings. In the race to make computers more intelligent than us, humanity will summon a demon, bring forth the end of days, and code itself into oblivion. Instead of silicon assistants we'll build silicon assassins.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) wants to prevent information about its creepy biometric database, which contains fingerprint, face, iris, and voice scans of millions of Americans, from getting out to the public.

OF THE MANY counterintuitive features of quantum mechanics, perhaps the most challenging to our notions of common sense is that particles do not have locations until they are observed.
In yet another instance of the media jumping on the climate alarmist bandwagon, The New York Times this past February boldly headlined "Seas Are Rising at Fastest Rate in Last 28 centuries."

Most of the people on planet earth live on less than $4 a day. Many are illiterate. In their struggle to survive, they cannot even fathom what is going on in the elitist genetic laboratories around the world where the quest to develop a genetically
Light is a fundamental avenue of study in physics, and its properties are well established with steadfast rules and invariable constraints. So, until recently, we thought we knew just about everything there was to know about it.
A handful of scientists around the United States are trying to do something that some people find disturbing: make embryos that are part human, part animal.
