If you see an antimatter version of yourself running towards you, think twice before embracing.
The future is coming! Some are calling it the 3rd or “3D Industrial Revolution”. But how does 3D Printing work, and what can you expect?
A look at what Mars may have looked like once.
Video: The Evolution Of Mars.
This is a concept video by NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland of how the Martian atmosphere and landscape may have changed in the past 4 billion years.
All going to plan, NASA will launch MAVEN this Monday, to find out whether the theories of change are correct. MAVEN will orbit Mars with a suite of instruments that will scan the upper atmosphere for proof of the existence of a much richer ancient atmosphere above the Red Planet.
The spacecraft will arrive at the Red Planet on Sept. 22, 2014, and slip into an elliptical orbit ranging from a low of 93 miles above the surface to a high of 3,728 miles. It also will take five “deep dips” during the course of the mission, flying as low as 77 miles in altitude and providing a cross-section of the top of the atmosphere
This is a revolutionary shift. Once upon a time, medicine was a discipline based on the nuanced diagnosis and treatment of sick patients. Now, Big Data, networked computers and a culture obsessed with knowing its numbers have moved medicine from the bedside to the desktop (or laptop). The art of medicine is becoming the science of an insurance actuary.
There’s a black hole in a galaxy 22 million light-years away that’s incredibly bright and energetic. Astronomers naturally assumed it was a supermassive black hole. But new observations show it’s actually quite tiny — throwing many conceptions of what we thought we knew about these things completely out the window.
Starr says Google Glass is no more intrusive than camera-equipped cell phones that do nearly the same thing.
"I think privacy is vapor now," Starr said. "There are cameras everywhere. There are recording devices everywhere."
The price of a bitcoin topped $900 last week, an enormous surge in value that arrived amidst Congressional hearings where top U.S. financial regulators took a surprisingly rosy view of digital currency. Just 10 months ago, a bitcoin sold for a measly $13.
The spike was big news across the globe, from Washington to Tokyo to China, and it left many asking themselves: “What the hell is a bitcoin?” It’s a good question — not only for those with little understanding of the modern financial system and how it intersects with modern technology, but also for those steeped in the new internet-driven economy that has so quickly remade our world over the last 20 years.
Bitcoin is a digital currency, meaning it’s money controlled and stored entirely by computers spread across the internet, and this money is finding its way to more and more people and businesses around the world. But it’s much more than that, and many people — including the sharpest of internet pioneers as well as seasoned economists — are still struggling to come to terms with its many identities.
With that in mind, we give you this: an idiot’s guide to bitcoin. And there’s no shame in reading. Nowadays, as bitcoin is just beginning to show what it’s capable of, we’re all neophytes.
Eric Schmidt, the CEO of Google, has described his company’s policy: “Google policy is to get right up to the creepy line and not cross it.
