  • NASA’s always looking at ways to explore space – the trick is getting a good idea and sufficient funding to pull it off.  Space.com’s got an article here about possible “next steps” beyond low Earth orbit.

A flying-wing drone, a heat-stroke pill, delaying the next ice age, and Diablo III

Technology

  • The Scimitar, a flying-wing design for a UAV body, maneuvers entirely by morphing the wing surface – no flaps or joints involved.  This means that it’s apparently very easy to fold up (for a drone) – you can cram three of them into a torpedo, for example, for launching from a submarine.  Very interesting possibilities.
