They don't call it rocket science because it's easy.
A flying saucer plummeted through the skies over Hawaii today in the second test of NASA’s new Mars landing system. If this had been a real flight to Mars, we’d have just killed a rover by slamming it into the planet below.

And now, the pleasant thought for the day
Have you ever described a wine you were drinking as fruity, sweet, or having a hint of coconut? Well, congratulations, because you were totally drinking a component of koala urine.

Spooky beyond words. Not scarey, just spooky.
Google's Artificial Neural Networks dream about many things — most of them, a lot creepier than electric sheep.

Automated driving as seen by GM from the 1950's.  Pay especial attention to the line at the 8 minute mark of the video - shudder.

Hey James... Always enjoy YOUR posts... but just stopped following "Atoms, Steam & Gas..." because I'm tired of all the SPAM posts of a couple of Authors here and their never-ending self-promoting posts of their e-books. Will continue to follow you though. Thanks

This church is for sale.  Found it while we were out driving around.  It would be a challenge though as it is a designated historical building.  The listing is here http://www.icx.ca/propertyDetails.aspx?&PropertyId=15529890&PidKey=967071992&Mode=2&Cul=1

I have thought about this sort of thing for the better part of 20 years.  The majority of people, policy makers included, don't seem to have a clue as to what's coming.   Street lighting, road paint, the need for less road maintenance, less gasoline consumption, etc, etc.
After years of futuristic speculation, the self-driving vehicle may be just around the bend. We speak to a lead engineer at Volvo who wants to take driving out of your hands. And we ask about the ethical concerns driving on autopilot and how to integrate these cars into our cities.
