Every once and awhile I have to get dressed up for a wedding or something. And it's kind of fun, but it always reminds me that I'm just not fancy on the inside. No matter how decked out I am I'm still a jeans and a tshirt person deep down. But hopefully that's not true of luxury tech products that people spend a lot…
Yesterday the whole world celebrated the 50th anniversary of Valentina Tereshkova's historic space adventure. The solo flight of the Soviet's Vostok 6 spacecraft on the 16th of June 1963, aboard the first female cosmonaut, was a really big hit in the communist countries.
Artists' impressions always played key role in promoting the ideas of space travel, forming our view of future, preparing people for the upcoming of manned or unmanned cosmic missions, spreading the visions of astronomical scientists and aerospace engineers.
It is always interesting to see how people imagined the future in certain ages, even so we have the separate trend 'retro futurism' for our viewing pleasure. A few weeks ago I purchased an amazing Hungarian dia film set (of two parts), which was created back in 1960, just one year before Gagarin's flight and one year…
When you search for the very first picture of the far side of the Moon on the Internet, only a very low quality version can be found. A few days ago I purchased a book published by the USSR Academy of Sciences in 1959 and I gladly stared at the much better images in it. I hope you are going to enjoy too.
Iranian officials happily announced on Monday that it downed and recovered a US drone as it was performing reconnaissance over Iranian territory. However, US officials have already denied that the drone is theirs and that, even if it were, there's nothing Iran can do with it. Here's why.
Within the next year or two, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security will instantly know everything about your body, clothes, and luggage with a new laser-based molecular scanner fired from 164 feet (50 meters) away. From traces of drugs or gun powder on your clothes to what you had for breakfast to the adrenaline…
For the first time, scientists have managed to use fMRI scans of a human to control the movements of a robot body. The link between man and machine allowed the researchers to control a robot in France from a brain scanner in Israel.
Medical imaging has become a routine part of assessing health problems over the last few decades. But a new study reveals that children who undergo CT head scans triple their risk of developing leukemia or a brain tumor.
An eye tracking study of 54 users under the age of 34 shows that Facebook users and Google+ users read their homepage in the same way.
Police in England will soon deploy 3-D laser scanners to the scene of car crashes, saving time and allowing wreckage to be cleared from roadways more quickly. The 3-D accident reconstruction will also be more accurate than human-generated reports.
Unless the blades of this airplane propellor can defy gravity and float, the iPhone's camera totally distorted reality with this picture. How did this happen? No, it's not Photoshop. It's because of the camera's "rolling shutter".
Built in 1841, you'd expect that the last ever wooden whaling ship would need a bit of patching up by now. Luckily, state-of-the-art 3D laser systems are on hand, able to scan for weak structural points in need of fixing.
They may not have bones to break, but all toys have something going on underneath those plastic shells of theirs. Scan Toys, an exhibition of toy x-rays at the Centro Cultural Recoleta in Buenos Aires, lets you see their guts.
When a headline says "Computer Technology Brings 300 Million-year-old Spider Fossils Back to Life," it's time to run to the hills, and start stockpiling canned food, gasoline cans, and weapons. Plenty of weapons.
It wasn't supposed to happen—not yet at least—but it did: This past June, a judge in the Indian state of Maharashtra convicted a woman of killing her ex-fiance, citing as proof an EEG scan showing "experiential knowledge" of the crime. Many people do think there's something to this, that an EEG or MRI scan of the…
