Imagine sending a spacecraft the size of an airline cabin bag to the #Moon – what would you have it do? ESA issued that challenge to European teams last year, and two winners have now been chosen.

The Lunar Meteoroid Impact Orbiter, or #Lumio for short, would circle over the far side of the Moon to detect bright impact flashes during the lunar night, mapping meteoroid bombardments as they occur.

Drones learn to navigate autonomously by imitating cars and bicycles - All today's commercial drones use GPS, which works fine above building roofs and in high altitudes. But what, when the drones have to navigate autonomously at low altitude among tall buildings or in the dense, unstructured city streets with cars, cyclists or pedestrians suddenly crossing their way? Until now, commercial drones are not able to quickly react to such unforeseen events.

Life is fun

Polar bear (Ursus maritimus)

Svalbard

This cub does not have any siblings to play with, and its mother is only occasionally and reluctantly returning the playful approaches. As with all kids it’s looking for things to do and fun things to discover, and here it’s likely wondering what its mother is going to do next.

From our point of view this is a super cute and cuddly cub and it’s hard not to utter “aaaw” when you see it in such a child-like posture, but soon it will become a formidable predator if it survives to adulthood.

With the sea ice shrinking fast, so is the access to food, so it is in luck to have a mother that has found a way to sea ice in the summer, as that is where the food is. But soon the sea ice will be a shadow of its past, and much further to the north than this at 81.31 degrees north, so the future is truly uncertain.

Found by the roadside

It's always a bonus finding some beautiful flowers while walking Billy and Archie, but not terribly easy to hold the camera still while they're pulling on their leashes :)

Reduced Attention to Audiovisual Synchrony in Infancy Predicts Autism Diagnosis

An ability to integrate information from different sensory modalities is important for infants' development and for their perception of the environment. A new study suggests that infants who pay little attention to synchronous sights and sounds may be at elevated risk for developing autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This knowledge about early development in ASD may contribute to earlier detection and intervention in the future.

The research is in Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry. (full access paywall)

Is our species about to take an evolutionary leap? "I think that the definition of being human is about to change a lot in the next century," says Michelle Thaller, astronomer and Assistant Director for Science Communication at NASA. Over the next few decades, Thaller speculates that humanity's augmented evolution will begin as we start to merge with A.I.s.
