Before NASA’s spacecraft Juno fired its engine on July 4 to slow it and place it in Jupiter’s orbit, the probe was zipping through space at a speed so fast it's hard to comprehend.

The announcement came at a meeting in Tokyo this week, and would see Sony re-enter the robotics field since abandoning its consumer robots Aibo and Qrio in in 2006. Pictured is a stock image.

Intelligent robot that 'remembers and learns' could be scrapped after escaping a lab for a second time ...

The Promobot IR77 has been fitted with artificial intelligence meaning that it learns from its experiences and surroundings and can remember everybody it meets

I smell a rat. The article for its first breakout said that it was due to someone leaving a door open. So, they left the same door open again? Hmmm...

Blue Origin to live broadcast rocket launch for the first time ... "You can't accuse Blue Origin of being entirely secretive, considering the company has publicly celebrated after each of its three rocket landings thus far. But when Jeff Bezos' New Shepard vehicle is fired into the air on Sunday he'll be giving space fans a real-time look at the action, with the company set to live stream one of its launches for the first time.

The astronomically curious have been a bit spoilt by the slick public relations machine at rival SpaceX. Elon Musk's company has allowed fans to share the excitement of its forays into space through a series live streams covering both its successes and failures, all presented by informative SpaceX engineers and staffers.

Blue Origin has been comparatively opaque since the launch of its first rocket in April last year. Though it has rightly basked in the glory of its historic rocket landings, this revelry has taken place after the fact through blog posts, rocket-cam videos and cheeky tweets (Bezos even dared to "Welcome SpaceX to the club" following its landing of the Falcon 9 booster in December).

But now its seems intent on stepping from the shadows and putting itself out there. Originally scheduled for today (Friday), New Shepard's fourth launch has now been pushed back to Sunday as a result of a leaking O-ring in the capsule's nitrogen gas pressurization. An exact launch time hasn't been announced yet, but when it does you'll be able to tune in over at http://blueorigin.com. ..."

Feels odd calling it 'space' when it never leaves visual from the ground cameras.

Ralph Roberts originally shared to Space (General):
 
Coffee Pancakes! ... Feeling both hungry and inventive this morning, I made coffee pancakes (my own invention). Use one cup pancake mix (Hungry Jack in this case), 3/4 cut of FRESH coffee (instead of water), and a couple dashes of cooking oil. Cook in a counter top sandwich make a la George Foreman. Delicious and keeps you awake long enough to eat 'em.

Europe's robots to become 'electronic persons' under draft plan ... What can possibly go wrong?

https://www.yahoo.com/news/europes-robots-become-electronic-persons-under-draft-plan-170708335--sector.html?ref=gs
By Georgina Prodhan MUNICH, Germany (Reuters) - Europe's growing army of robot workers could be classed as "electronic persons" and their owners liable to paying social security for them if the European Union adopts a draft plan to address the realities of a new industrial revolution.

By trapping photons inside a tiny gold cavity, scientists have created a hybrid state of light and matter. This could allow them to develop tiny on-chip lasers or tweak the chemical bonds of single molecules.
