    • Mars: Pictures reveal ‘winter wonderland’ on the red planet Mars-Pictures-reveal-winter-wonderland-on-the-red-planet1

      Earth’s North Pole is famous for its snowy climes – and for hosting Santa’s workshop, of course. But as these pictures reveal, it’s not the only planet with snow scenes this holiday season. This is the Korolev crater, near the north pole of Mars, as captured by the European Space Agency (ESA)’s Mars Express mission. The crater is 82km (50 miles) across, and filled with ice 1.8km thick. It was named after rocket engineer and spacecraft designer Sergei Korolev, the architect of the Soviet Union’s space programme. Mr Korolev worked on the first interplanetary missions to the Moon, Mars...

On Tuesday, Trump ordered the creation of “Space Command”, a new organizational structure within the Pentagon that will have overall control of military space operations. SpaceCom, as...

    • Japan’s flying cars: Future or fantasy? Japan's-flying-cars-Future-or-fantasy1

      This summer, Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) stated intentions to allocate about 40 million U.S. dollars of the 2019 METI budget to support flying car technology.  It also organized a task force of 21 companies from aviation, automotive, and information technology sectors to help Japan catch up with other international flying car competitors. The amount of money allocated is relatively limited, but it has focused industry and investors’ attention on the race to make flying cars more than a fantasy.  Emerging from the score of government-led flying car companies is a scrappy start-up “Cartivator.” Cartivator representative...

    • North Korea’s high-tech pursuits: Propaganda or progress? North-Korea-high-tech-pursuits-Propaganda-or-progress

      North Korea often flaunts its military hardware but of late, it appears to be making progress in developing civilian technologies – or at least is claiming to be. As with most things in the country, it is difficult to verify these claims, but it is significant to note the importance being given to technology. In recent months, state media have publicly celebrated various achievements in advanced technologies, including an “intelligent home system”. Beyond the purpose of propaganda, emphasis on the sector reflects North Korea’s desire to harness technology to improve its economy – a key goal for Supreme Leader...

    • Space Odyssey helps launch first 8K TV channel Space-Odyssey-helps-launch-first-8K TV channel

          Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey will help launch the world’s first super-high definition 8K television channel on Saturday. Japanese broadcaster NHK said it had asked Warner Bros to scan the original film negatives in 8K for its new channel. Super-high definition 8K pictures offer 16 times the resolution of HD TV.

As well as improved picture resolution, broadcasts can include 24 channels of audio for immersive...

    • Anti-shaking camera: DJI sticking with 3-axis gimbal Anti-shaking-camera-DJI-sticking-with-3-axis-gimbal

That’s why camera companies are creating various tools for us to remain steady. Typical anti-shaking methods include: – Optical image stabilization (OIS). It can be found on a lot of smartphones. When you tilt the phone, the lenses will tilt toward the opposite direction to offset the shaking. – Electrical image stabilization (EIS). Smartphones, cameras and camcorders all can be equipped with such technology because it’s...
