Search and rescue: Google-owned robot is new disaster response champ
Mon Dec 23, 2013
The Wright Brothers first flight lasted only 12 seconds over a distance of 120'. Now flying in an airplane is a common occurance. This is just the beginning of the age of robots. They will continuously improve until they too are commonplace.
Rugged Mars terrain chewing up Curiosity's wheels; inspection set
Fri Dec 20, 2013
I think the clearly machined-in square holes are there to eject dirt and pebbles that could accumulate inside the wheel. There may be smaller punctures that aren't readily visible in the pictures. For an aluminum wheel speding a lot of time going over rocks, they don't look that bad.
Comic Sans 'Doge' takes bite out of 'Unflattering Beyonce' to win Internet in 2013

It takes heat to evaporate water and that is coming from warming oceans. Hurricanes, Tornadoes, Snow and ice storms are caused by wea …
Wounded in Afghanistan, troops begin healing in Germany
Wed Dec 4, 2013
I made the C-130 trip to Landstuhl from Iraq in 2008. I saw the medivac process first hand. It's a very impressive and efficient operation. It was also sobering to see all the young soldiers on stretchers stacked 3 high like cord wood with multiple injuries from IED's. Many on my flight were only 19 …
LAX suspect had 'patriot' movement propaganda on him, expert says
Sat Nov 2, 2013
The Patriot Movement and the Patriot Act both dilute and sully the word by corrupting it's meaning for political purposes. I now equate anyone who uses the word Patriot to justify spying on citizens, unwarrantable searches, and execution by drone AND terrorists (foreign or domestic) who recruit gull …
