To many people, mankind's "giant leap" is synonymous with Neil Armstrong's "small step" onto the surface of the moon. But NASA astronaut Donald Pettit disagrees. The leap, he says, actually occurred far closer to home.

Retinal cells 'go with the flow' to assess own motion through space

Retinal cells 'go with the flow' to assess own motion through space

A new study helps to explain how specialized retinal cells help stabilize vision by perceiving how their owner is moving.|
 
 Think of the way that a long flat highway seems to widen out around you from a single point on the horizon, while in the rear-view mirror everything narrows back to a single point behind you. Or think of the way that when a spaceship in a movie accelerates to its "warp" or "hyper" speed, the illusion is conveyed by the stars turning into streaks that zip radially outward off the screen. That's how a new study in Nature says specialized cells in the retina sense their owner's motion through the world -- by sensing that same radiating flow.

God Help Us... Trump To Announce ATC Plan Monday

Announcement of 'Air Traffic Control Reform Initiative' Scheduled For 1130 ET

Well... we had a feeling that it was coming sooner or later, but it now appears that 'sooner' is what we can now expect. President Trump, ignoring the advice of much of the aviation industry (except for the airlines interested in undertaking a power grab), has scheduled a Monday morning announcement in the East Room of the White House in order to publicize the 'Air Traffic Control Reform Initiative' that he plans to send to Congress.

A technology developed by Purdue researchers could provide an "instantly rechargeable" method that is safe, affordable and environmentally friendly for recharging electric and hybrid vehicle batteries through a quick and easy process similar to refueling a car at a gas station.The innovation could expedite the adoption of electric and hybrid vehicles by eliminating the time needed to stop and re-charge a conventional electric car's  and dramatically reducing the need for new infrastructure to support re-charging stations.

John Cushman, Purdue University distinguished professor of earth, atmospheric and planetary science and a professor of mathematics, presented the research findings "Redox reactions in immiscible-fluids in  – membraneless battery applications" at the recent International Society for Porous Media 9th International Conference in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

Cushman co-founded Ifbattery LLC (IF-battery) to further develop and commercialize the technology.

The Boeing 797X?

 

The Boeing 797X?

Boeing strangely has not yet confirmed the project’s designation, but it is reasonable to assume the company will not break with the numbering system that it established in 1956. So what is it? We know it is a family of two widebody aircraft sized to capture an estimated 2,000-3,000-unit slice of the commercial aircraft market over the next two decades.

Although often referred to as a 757 replacement, the market opportunity encompasses both the legacy single-aisle and widebodies like the 767. It will probably be able to accommodate up to about 220 passengers and fly between 4,500-6,000nm (8,330-11,100km).

Blue Origin To Build Florida Launch Complex

 

Blue Origin Rocket Chart

 

Jeff Bezos' rocket company Blue Origin has begun site preparation for an orbital launch complex and rocket engine test stand at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

The 300-acre site will be built on land that previously hosted a trio of Atlas rocket launch pads. The latest version of the Atlas now flies from Launch Complex 41.

Blue Origin leased Launch Complex 36 A and B, as well as Launch Complex 11, in 2015.

Some of NASA's most historic missions were launched from Complex 36, including the Pioneer, Surveyor and Mariner spacecraft in the 1960s and 1970s. The pads were operational from 1962 to 2002
