As A.I. improves, so will its ability to improve humans. Machines won't take over, they'll grow with us. What are you thoughts on the future of technology as it concerns human development? Are you excited? Scared? Hopeful?

Check out this amazing gallery of illustrations telling the story of Russia's space program. These photos show just how impactful space was to the general public and the amount of wonder it inspired. Time to bring back that.

Making the Impossible Possible.
Introduction
Founded in 1995, XPRIZE is the leading nonprofit organization solving the world’s Grand Challenges by creating and managing large-scale, high-profile, incentivized prize competitions that stimulate investment in research and development worth far more than the prize itself.  The organization motivates and inspires brilliant innovators from all disciplines to leverage their intellectual and financial capital for the benefit of humanity. 

XPRIZE conducts competitions in five Prize Groups: 
Learning; Global Development; Energy & Environment; Life Sciences; and Exploration (Ocean and Deep Space).  

Prizes won include the $10 million Ansari XPRIZE for private, suborbital space flight; the $10 million Progressive Insurance Automotive XPRIZE for creating safe, affordable, production-capable vehicles that exceed 100 MPG energy equivalent (MPGe); $1.4 million Wendy Schmidt Oil Cleanup X CHALLENGE for solutions to speed the pace of cleaning up seawater surface oil resulting from spillage; and the $2 million Northrop Grumman Lunar Lander XCHALLENGE for advanced rocket development. 

Active prizes include the $30 million Google Lunar XPRIZE, the $10 million Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE, the the $2.25 million Nokia Sensing XCHALLENGE and the $2 million Wendy Schmidt Ocean Health XPRIZE.  To learn more about the XPRIZE, please visit http://www.xprize.org
