NASA ‘Smart SPHERES’ Tested on ISS: little spherical robots, with smartphones for brains, that are designed to move around in zero-G conditions and help out astronauts. So cool.
Yet another reason why many exo-planets aren’t going to be habitable: not even a strong magnetic field can save you from irradiation if your sun’s solar wind is strong enough.
How do you weigh something in zero-G, when they’re weightless? By using a Kinect, apparently.
/facepalm. Russia had another space-launch fail Friday, as a rocket with a satellite payload crashed after launch. Many articles on it, understandably.
