Gear  |  News
NASA is developing the capabilities needed to send humans to an asteroid by 2025 and Mars in the 2030s...
"Our next step is deep space, where NASA will send a robotic mission to capture and redirect an asteroid to orbit the moon. Astronauts aboard the Orion spacecraft will explore the asteroid in the 2020s, returning to Earth with samples. This experience in human spaceflight beyond low-Earth orbit will help NASA test new systems and capabilities, such as Solar Electric Propulsion, which we’ll need to send cargo as part of human missions to Mars. Beginning in FY 2018, NASA’s powerful Space Launch System rocket will enable these “proving ground” missions to test new capabilities. Human missions to Mars will rely on Orion and an evolved version of SLS that will be the most powerful launch vehicle ever flown.
A fleet of robotic spacecraft and rovers already are on and around Mars, dramatically increasing our knowledge about the Red Planet and paving the way for future human explorers. The Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity rover measured radiation on the way to Mars and is sending back radiation data from the surface. This data will help us plan how to protect the astronauts who will explore Mars. Future missions like the Mars 2020 rover, seeking signs of past life, also will demonstrate new technologies that could help astronauts survive on Mars.
Engineers and scientists around the country are working hard to develop the technologies astronauts will use to one day live and work on Mars, and safely return home from the next giant leap for humanity"

Atari ET cartridges from 1982 unearthed in landfill

Gear  |  Video
In 1983 Atari allegedly dumped millions of unsold E.T. game cartridges in a Alamogordo, New Mexico landfill after deeming them unsellable because the game sucked so hard. And now that rumor seems to be true, as excavators have just uncovered hundreds of the game while searching the landfill. And the game's designer Howard Scott Warshaw, now a psychotherapist, was on hand.
"I've been carrying this thing, the theoretically worst video game of all time, for 30 years now," Warshaw said. "It was a game that was done in five weeks. It was a very brief development. I did the best that I could, and that's OK."

Korner is a cheap and super simple alarm home security system.  It consists of small motion-detecting tags that attach to the corner of your door or windows, and a wireless dongle that you plug into the ethernet port on your router. If one of the tags detects movement that it associates with the window being opened, it’ll send a signal to the dongle, which will then notify you on your smartphone. Using that app, the user can then contact the police, or forward the alert to someone else who can look in on their place. The app also lets them turn the system on and off manually, or set it to a program. They're currently raising production funds for Korner, on Indiegogo, $89 pledge will get you a set with three of these, and one fob.

The Vipukirves Axe features a unique design that promises to do away with many of the issues that leave your wood-splitting skills looking more like Paul Wall’s than Paul Bunyan’s. Thanks to its curvy blade design and narrow end, the axe pierces into wood with ease, then immediately twists slightly to the right, detaching the chopped portion from the log instantly. The result is a specialized axe that works faster, more efficiently.(Watch the video above). It will set you back €155.74 or about $215, plus €47.26 ($65) in shipping.
