  • NASA’s Cassini spacecraft just caught a glimpse of Earth, all the way from Saturn

    Golocal247.com news

    NASA and its spectacular space hardware often spend so much time checking out our planetary neighbors that we forget Earth offers some pretty cool photo ops as well. A brand new photo released by NASA is a great reminder of that, and it was shot all the way from Saturn, courtesy of the always reliable Cassini spacecraft just before it's scheduled to begin the most harrowing part of its entire years-long mission. The photo, which shows the Earth as a tiny bright dot in a black sea of space, was shot at a distance of 870 million miles. If you zoom in on the original photo you can even make out the Moon as a smaller dot to the left of our planet. The most spectacular part of the image is the fact that it was shot from between Saturn's rings, with the bold A ring seen above the Earth and bright F ring creeping into the original photo at the bottom. It's a great shot, but it's also somewhat bittersweet when you consider Cassini's immediate future. The craft is scheduled to begin its "Grand Finale" dives shortly, in which it will fly recklessly through Saturn's rings a total of 22 times until, on its final approach, it flies directly into the planet itself. That final act will destroy the spacecraft, which has already achieved far more than scientists could have ever hoped when it was launched way back in 1997. That last fateful dive is slated for September 15th, 2017.

  • Attend the March for Science without ever leaving your couch

    Golocal247.com news

    On Saturday, tens of thousands of scientists and fans of reason will take to the streets in more than 500 demonstrations planned around the world as part of the first-ever March for Science.  But even if you can't make it to a march in person, a livestream of the festivities in Washington, D.C., has you covered.  SEE ALSO: Here's why thousands of scientists are (and aren't) marching on Saturday A webcast set to go live at 10 a.m. ET Saturday will broadcast the rally ahead of the march in Washington, D.C., for any and all who want to participate but had to stay home for one reason or another.  You can watch the webcast — which will feature rally speeches and entertainment by Questlove, Bill Nye, members of Congress and many others — provided through the Earth Day Network, in the window below. At the moment, science in this country is seemingly under threat from the Trump administration itself.  If President Donald Trump has his way, as outlined in his budget blueprint, the Environmental Protection Agency's budget would be cut by more than 31 percent and many other science funding agencies would face massive cutbacks as well.  The March for Science is designed to make the voices of scientists and science supporters known to policymakers around the world. "Science is a vital feature of a working democracy, spurring innovation, critical thinking, increased understanding, and better, healthier lives for all people," the March for Science states on its website. "By marching in Washington, DC and around the world, we take one of many steps to become more active in our communities and in democratic life."

  • Apple is getting serious about self-driving cars

    Golocal247.com news

    Though Apple's plans to develop and manufacture a branded car may currently be on hold, the company's plans to research and develop self-driving car technologies appears to be moving forward. Just about a week after Apple obtained a permit to test autonomous vehicles in the state of California, Business Insider filed a public-records request and managed to gain access to materials accompanying Apple's permit application. The filed documents provide us with some interesting new information regarding Apple's training program for its nascent self-driving car initiative. According to training materials which correspond to software Apple calls the "Apple Automated System", it appears that Apple engineers have been busy developing a suite of software and hardware sensors designed to assist a car drive with the flow of traffic while avoiding other vehicles and pedestrians. According to the training packet, the car that Apple's staffers are using to test the self-driving technology is outfitted with consumer video game gear such as a Logitech steering wheel and pedals to actuate drive by wire. Whereas Apple's earlier car efforts seemed to entail hiring hundreds of employees with vast automotive experience across all aspects of the car development and manufacturing process, it stands to reason that Apple, for the time being, has decided to primarily focus its attention on self-driving technologies. With cars boasting Apple's mysterious autonomous software having been approved for use on the road, California law holds that the drivers/passengers overseeing the testing must be sufficiently trained and ready to assume control of the wheel at any moment. Apple applied for a permit for six drivers to drive three Lexus RX450h SUVs. Apple's drivers, named in the application, are mostly Ph.D.s specializing in machine learning, some of whom previously worked for companies like Bosch and Tesla, according to their LinkedIn profiles. Apple said its vehicles would be able to capture and store "relevant data before a collision occurs" in its application. That Apple is exploring self-driving technologies may not be all that surprising, but the more interesting question is if it really matters. As it stands now, we can only presume that Apple's progress with its own technology isn't anywhere close to matching what established automakers and a myriad of start-up companies have already developed. Going forward, it will be interesting to see if Apple's foray into the self-driving world will ever yield a marketable product or if it will simply become an Apple research initiative that never sees the light of day. Apple's full permit application can be viewed over here via AppleInsider.
