So apparently people are excited about Warp Drives due to this news story about NASA's group thinking about them and that the energy requirements might be lower than previously thought. http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2012/09/warp-drive-plausible/

If you're interested in learning more about the physics behind warp drives, you should listen to a Titanium Physicist podcast we did a few months ago, where Ben, Jocelyn and I explained the idea behind the Alcubierre warp drive to SMBC's Zach Weinersmith.

I ofter hear disparaging remarks about the virtual observatory (VO), or lack thereof, but things are definitely happening! The scientific goal of the VO is to use a uniform set of queries enable astronomers to discover data sets worldwide and aggregate them into new data products and to perform new scientific analyses. The VO does this by developing standards and protocols to support common queries to disparate and inhomogenous data sets distribu...

We think technology should work for you—to be there when you need it and get out of your way when you don’t.

A group of us from Google[x] started Project Glass to build this kind of technology, one that helps you explore and share your world, putting you back in the moment. We’re sharing this information now because we want to start a conversation and learn from your valuable input. So we took a few design photos to show what this technology could look like and created a video to demonstrate what it might enable you to do.

Please follow along as we share some of our ideas and stories. We’d love to hear yours, too. What would you like to see from Project Glass?
