Breaking!

Elon Musk announces manned Moon flight taking place as early as next year!

"SpaceX says it will fly two people to the moon next year.

Company chief Elon Musk announced the surprising news Monday.

Two people who know one another approached the company about sending them on a weeklong flight just beyond the moon. Musk won't identify the pair or the price tag. He says they've already paid a "significant" deposit.

Musk says SpaceX is on track to launch astronauts to the International Space Station for NASA in mid-2018. This moon mission would follow about six months later, using a Dragon crew capsule and a Falcon heavy rocket.

Musk says the moon mission is designed to be autonomous—unless something goes wrong. SpaceX says the passengers would fly to the moon, but won't land on it."

Smart cities one of the big themes at Mobile World Congress

The big themes of Mobile World Congress (MWC) so far center around the internet of things, artificial intelligence and 5G wireless, according to Computerworld. https://goo.gl/6L1OlF

AT&T has created an exhibition showing off smart city tech, including a light pole equipped with sensors that can communicate to public safety and traffic officials about road, parking and pedestrian conditions. Sensors can also be installed to monitor air pollution, weather or the sound of gunshots, according to Computerworld.

AT&T has announced it has joined in an exclusive agreement with Current, a division of GE, to deliver internet of things technology to cities in the U.S. and Mexico. Specifically, AT&T will be GE's exclusive reseller of intelligent sensor nodes in the two countries.

The nodes are integrated within light poles, almost invisibly, and can work with lighting elements from multiple manufacturers, AT&T said. They are equipped with three cameras and multiple sensors. Data from the nodes can be sent wirelessly over AT&T's 4G LTE network, or it can be connected to a fiber optic backhaul.

City governments can use existing light poles and power supplies that are then equipped with more energy-efficient LED lighting. Costs savings from energy-efficient lighting can be used to pay for sensors and for the software platform used to aggregate sensor data, Computerworld said.

San Diego has a project to equip 3,200 streetlights with LED lighting and sensors, expected to bring a $2.4 million reduction in energy usage annually, AT&T said. https://goo.gl/gUwfaV

John Gordon, chief digital officer of Current, said in an interview that GE technology helps keep the intelligent-node sensor data available for general purposes. In the past, cities were forced to tie one type of sensor to one application.

"Anybody can access this data," Gordon said.
