Story here.  As usual, I don’t believe we will ever see this, thought I do ultimately think this is the wave of the future.  I also think robotic vehicles, UAVs and soldiers will make war more likely, not less likely.

Robots in space

Is it the next step in Skynet?  I doubt it.  However, I have no doubts that robots like this will be vital in space travel, especially on trips to Mars and to more distant objects.

More of the story here.  I suspect that we may not know the full story of what happened here for 20 or 30 years, if ever.  However, I think this is a much more important story than we’ve been led to believe and I hope reporters keep digging.

Earth’s inner core

Interesting article on study of the Earth’s core using data generated from old Soviet nuke tests.  What they don’t tell you in the article is one of the nuke tests was the Tsar Bomba, the most powerful man-made explosion ever.  There is a kit of the Tsar Bomba and I want it.

BTW, this is what the effects of the Tsar Bomba would look like if an air burst detonation occurred over Louisville, KY

It is hard to keep track of them all.  Here it seems that Syrian and Russian a/c are attacking either Turkish units inside Syria or Turkish surrogates with Turkish supplied armor.  Great.  Just frikkin’ great.

It is vaporware for the moment.  Given the financial situation in Russia, color me skeptical that it will see the light of day anytime soon.

or should the fact there was a small explosion in Russia involving a release of radiation be a bigger deal? WTF?

 

UPDATE:  Here is a much more detailed analysis of what we know or think we know.

No, I am not talking about the weather.  South Korea firing warning shots at the Russians.  Yeah, what the hell, that is going to end well.
