NASA now knows what went wrong with its Mars helicopter

April 13th, 2021

All eyes were on Mars this past weekend when NASA had scheduled the first flight of its Ingenuity helicopter. It was supposed to be a monumental moment for NASA, the scientific community, and humanity as a whole, but it ended with a whimper as NASA had to delay the test flight due to some messed …

A glacier in Alaska is moving 100 times faster than it should

April 13th, 2021

Nature can be unpredictable at times, but some things are more reliable than others. Spring (usually) brings a lot of rain, birds migrate to warmer areas in the winter months, and glaciers move slow. These are trends that have been established and are expected, but they’re not always universally true. Sometimes spring is dry, sometimes …

dying galaxy

This dying galaxy is strangely beautiful

April 12th, 2021

There is a beginning and an end to everything. We often measure time in terms of how long our species tend to live, and over that relatively short span it can seem like stars, planets, and galaxies live “forever.” That’s not true, of course, but since these objects and structures exist for so much longer …

This Spot robot has been modified to pee beer

April 12th, 2021

Back in the 1950s, robots that could navigate on their own were nothing but science fiction. The idea that a robot could open a door or walk down a flight of stairs was just a pipe dream, but today we have robots that do all that and more. The “Spot” robot from Boston Dynamics was …

NASA forced to delay first Mars Helicopter flight

April 12th, 2021

NASA’s Perseverance mission to Mars has been pretty much perfect thus far. The rover and its tiny helicopter companion landed on the Red Planet with ease and after about a month of systems testing and other startup work, both the rover and the Ingenuity helicopter were given clean bills of health. This past weekend, the …

‘Mario Kart’ might teach us how to solve poverty

April 11th, 2021

Looking for solutions to some of the world’s biggest problems like poverty, environmental sustainability, and agricultural struggles in developing regions can be absolutely mind-bending. There are so many factors to consider that the sheer scope is overwhelming, and maybe that’s why it’s so hard to solve these kinds of issues. Sometimes it’s better to boil …

Here’s when you’ll finally be able to see the Mars helicopter fly

April 10th, 2021

It’s now been well over a month since NASA’s Perseverance rover arrived on Mars. Along with it, the Mars Ingenuity helicopter landed safe and sound on the Red Planet, and a significant portion of the rover’s first weeks was dedicated to delivering the helicopter to its test flight location. The helicopter was deployed and has …

This Mars image looks unreal, and it sort of is

April 8th, 2021

The image you see above is the surface of Mars. I know that’s hard to believe since you normally see Mars in dusty, vaguely orangish hues in photos snapped by NASA’s Mars rovers, but it’s true! This image, by contrast, has some orange along with shades of white and a surprising amount of blue, but …
