Humanoid Robots Getting Set To Head To Mars

NASA is teaming up with scientists and students from four universities, in an effort to design humanoid robots to send to Mars. This 5’9, 275 pounds robot named Valkyrie, that can already walk and is learning to interact with people, will be used to carry out vital tasks in environments deadly to human beings. Holly Yanco, professor of computer science, explained “Up in the head, you can see we have a stereo camera pair, we hooked it up to an Oculus Rift, so somebody who’s remotely controlling the robot can see through the robot’s eyes.” It also has cameras on...

Tonight On Dark Thirty Radio Elon Musk Hopes We Are Living In A Virtual Reality When asked what the likelihood was that we are all living in a simulated matrix, founder of SpaceX and co-founder of Tesla Motors, Elon Musk used video games as an analogy. “40 years ago we had Pong – two rectangles and a dot. That’s where we were. Now 40 years later  we have photo-realistic, 3D simulations with millions of people playing simultaneously and it’s  getting better every year.” Musk says he himself believes that “it would seem to follow that the odds that we’re in...

Tonight On Dark Thirty Radio Planet Nine Stolen From Another Galaxy A recent hypothesis suggesting that the highly theorized Planet Nine is actually an exoplanet  from a neighboring planetary system that our Sun stole from another star is now proving to be a very real explanation to its existence in our galaxy…if it exists at all. Astronomer Alexander Mustill from Lund University in Sweden, explained that the evidence is based on the strange alignment of rocky objects in the Kuiper belt, which seems to suggest that  some kind of massive cosmic body is exerting a very strong gravitational force on...

First Human Thought Successfully Converted To Sound

An incredible new groundbreaking device has just successfully turned human thought into speech. Professor Robert Knight and colleagues at UC Berkeley are leading the research by studying how  “hearing words, speaking out loud and imagining words involves overlapping areas of the brain.” Now, scientists have successfully played back a word someone was thinking by monitoring their  brain activity. Knight explains “We applied a temporal realignment procedure that improved our accuracy in classifying words that are spoken or imagined. Our work showed us it is possible to capture the  brain signals that represented an intended word.” “We want to develop an...

Could NASA Have Miscalculated Data On Asteroids?

Serious and potential terrifying allegations have been brought up against NASA, claiming their data released on asteroids is “basically all wrong.” Nathan Myhrvold, a former Microsoft chief technologist, has just published a paper in Science magazine, stating that “NASA’s statistics on the size of these asteroids is riddled with errors, none of their results can be replicated. I found one irregularity after another.” Although the chances are only around one in 10,000 of these errors causing any devastating catastrophe like an asteroid impact, Myhrvold says they made mistakes, such as ignoring the margin of error introduced when extrapolating from a...

Active SETI Aim To Send Coded Radio Messages Into Space By 2018

Two separate groups of scientists are now underway is designing a method in which to send coded  radio messages into space in hopes of deliberately attracting the attention of intelligent  life. The first group, led by Douglas Vakoch, President of the San Francisco-based non-profit Messaging Extraterrestrial Intelligence International, plan to draw upon international experts to make a message that will be both information-rich and provocative enough to illicit a response. “It’s too late to conceal ourselves in the universe, so we should decide how we want to represent ourselves,” said Vakoch. “We hope to radio transmit by the end of...
