  • Terrain LIDAR scans jungle in search of a lost city
  • Interesting video...right up to the point where the two ladies launched into a tirade about deforestation, "untouched" land, keep man out, etc., etc. I get so tired of the "for experts only" kind of designations that are put on these things. Yes, it's history...document it, but don't shut the entire human race out. After all, man lived in this very location, hundreds of years ago...why not again, sometime?

  • 6 famous people you may not know are engineers
  • Surprising to learn this about Jimmy Carter, especially after hearing him mispronounce the word "nuclear" in at least one of his speeches. You would think that people working in a field would, at least, be able to pronounce it, correctly.

  • 1st liquid-fueled rocket launches, March 16, 1926
  • Hi Michael, Goddard was such a hero of mine, as a young student, that I wrote a book report on his accomplishments. Back then, Goddard, Yeager, and Von Braun were our heros. Unfortunately, nowadays, kids care more about the public exploits of Lady Gaga...

  • The chip glitch
  • A "monetary reward"...count yourself lucky! Good job on your troubleshooting. It's often extremely difficult to get management to understand that manufacturing defects do, indeed, exist.

  • Halloween Robots: Trick or Treat?
  • A witch costume...OMG! Think of all the Wiccan followers you might have offended. The Supreme Court may be hearing of this.

  • Marketers talk funnier than ever
  • You want to see "funny"? Look at the ads in many audiophile magazines that describe things like "low phase distortion copper" and "passive preamps". I've also seen marketing for a "passive radar jammer"...that was a new one on me.
