SSTL's low-cost Carbonite-1 imaging satellite before completion. This first iteration of the Carbonite took 6 months to build. 1

Spy Satellite Tech Now Cheaper Than Ever

Spy Satellite Tech Now Cheaper Than Ever This July, a scheduled rocket launch served as the cover for the secret deployment of the Carbonite-1, a new low-cost imaging satellite. Using off-the-shelf cameras and telescopes, the Carbonite-1 is designed to orbit the Earth at a distance of 500km, capturing stunning images of the planet at 1-meter ground resolution. The satellite’s manufacturer, SSTL, envisions a web of cheap Carbonite satellites orbiting the globe but does this bold vision of the future spell an end to our terrestrial privacy rights?

Drone Regulations Ahead: NASA and UK Developing ‘Traffic System’

Drone Regulations Ahead: NASA and UK Developing UAV ‘Traffic System’ Soon, hobby and commercial drone operators may face new rules and hardware requirements.  NASA, in cooperation with the British government are working together to develop a traffic system for all low-flying drones below an altitude of 500 feet. The system will also offer a database for commercial drone pilots (like the future Amazon delivery system) to register their drones and track them for forthcoming flight regulations. Classifications Currently, airspace is classified internationally by subsets under the spectrum of ‘A through G’, with Class A aircraft being set-aside for commercial flight and Class G...

University of Buckingham shows proof of microbial alien life outside of our planet for first time. 1

EXTRATERRESTRIAL LIFE PHOTOGRAPHED BY SCIENCE FOR FIRST TIME EVER!?

Scientists May Have Just Photographed Alien Life For the Very First Time! (Buckingham, UK) An exploratory project in Derbyshire involving powerful magnets launched into the stratosphere has just allegedly revealed scientific proof-positive that alien life exists outside of Earth. This not only resonates with the panspermia theory, that life on Earth came from other parts of the galaxy, but also suggests that alien life could be raining down on Earth from particles accumulated in our atmosphere all of the time. “As far as we can tell the particle has no relation to anything found on Earth,” Professor Milton Wainwright of...
