  • The First HQ Photo Of The Earth Taken From The Mars Curiosity Rover

    This view of the twilight sky and Martian horizon taken by NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover includes Earth as the brightest point of light in the night sky. Earth is a little left of center in the image, and our moon is just below Earth. Someday, when the first humans walk on Mars — after they’ve taken a commemorative “one small step for man” selfie, of course — they will turn their iPhone 27′s back towards Earth and snap a photo of their home planet that might look something like the image above. Taken on January 31st, this is the first photo of Earth captured by the Mars Rover Curiosity from the Red Planet’s surface. It was shot 80 minutes after sunset, and if you look very closely (or scroll down to the zoomed in version) you can see two tiny specs that are Earth and the moon. Actually, if you yourself were standing on Mars, NASA explains that “a human observer with normal vision… could easily see Earth and the moon as two distinct, bright ‘evening stars.’” The image was captured by the left eye camera of Curiosity’s Mast Camera (or Mastcam), and at the time it was taken, Earth more »

  • NASA Bets On Private Companies To Exploit Moon’s Resources [Link]

    With an ever disappearing federal budget when it comes to science and exploration, what is NASA supposed to do? How about partner with private firms to mine moon rocks? The President may have said that we as a country won’t return to the moon, but that can’t stop private sector money to finance lunar missions to get whatever is hiding up there. I’m guessing cheese. Lots and lots of delicious moon cheese.

  • Photo of the Day: Spectacular Fresh Impact Crater On Mars

    A dramatic, fresh impact crater dominates this image taken by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter on Nov. 19, 2013.

  • Slow Watches Tell 24 Hours of Time Using 1 Hand (Watch Wednesdays)

    The concept of the Slow Watch might be a little unsettling at first if your one of the few who depend on a turn of your wrist for the most precise time (air traffic controller, NAVY Seal or human DVR), but if your cell phone tells accurate time and you want something a little more unique give it a shot. What might require a bit of adjusting might just give you a completely different outlook on the concept of time. A full 24 hours of display on a watch has never been done before and while the single hand might give off the theory of a simple mechanism under the hood, it’s actually quite complex. The watch has a Swiss Made Ronda Caliber 505.24H GMT movement that originally has 4 hands plus the date, but SW only uses the one hand that shows the 24 hour time in order to create a true slow watch that is reduced to only one necessary component. A unique differentiator for the watch lover. Slow Watches $250-290

  • First Porsche Car Goes On Display [6 Photos]

The historic car was recently uncovered in an Austrian garage where it has sat untouched since 1902.

  • Remembering The Apollo 1 Tragedy [10 Photos]

    NASA planned on launching the Apollo 1, the first manned mission of the Apollo manned lunar landing program, on February 21, 1967. That day would never come, however, when a cabin fire during a launch test at Florida’s Cape Canaveral Launch Station killed all three crew members and destroyed the command module on January 27, 1967. Command Pilot Virgil I. “Gus” Grissom, Senior Pilot Edward H. White II, and Pilot Roger B. Chaffee lost their lives that day, but their deaths were not in vain. A 20 month suspension of Apollo flights followed in order to correct lthal dsign and construction flaws. Less than three years later, the program became the greatest success of the century when Apollo 11 successfully landed on the moon on July 21, 1969. These historical photos from NASA show the heroic crew preparing for the flight and the charred command module after the tragedy.

  • The Google Smart Contact Lens Project

    Google announced last week they’re currently testing a new “smart” contact lens which uses a tiny wireless chip and miniaturized glucose sensor that are embedded between two layers of soft contact lens material to detect glucose levels for diabetics. The prototypes, not yet FDA approved can generate one reading per second using tear fluid from the eyes of it’s wearer. The contact lens is also being tested to detect early warning signs that would trigger a tiny LED light to indicate a spike or decline in normal glucose levels. The project is still in its early stages, but making leaps and bounds in clinical research to help refine the prototype as said on Google’s blog.

  • Range Rover Quiets Critiques by Crossing the Worlds Largest Desert in Record Time

    Over the past decade Range Rover has transformed from a top-of-the-line off road beast capable of taking on the elements, terrain and anything else the world throws at it. Through recently, housewives of Beverly Hills and over privileged teenagers use it as a symbol of wealth and luxury, a stigma Land Rover had seemed to accept, catering to the luxurious with it’s newest sleek, “aerodynamic” look, claiming better gas milage at high speeds because of the new shape. Because people who can afford an $80,000 SUV worry about highway gas milage. Some enthusiasts thought the drastic change was a travesty to the boxy beginnings that was once a Range Rover signature, some rolled with the punches claiming progress. Either way Land Rover is now attempting to rebuke the ‘house wife’ stigma with their newest campaign. ‘Driven Challenges’, an ad campaign pushing their newest edition Rover to the ultimate tests in climate, terrain and performance. The campaign began this year at Pike’s Peak International Hill Climb, where the RR set a record for a production vehicle. Now they’re setting their sights on The Empty Quarter. The largest sand desert in the world. The Quarter is so big, it shares borders with more »
