The venture capitalists and tech lords over at Burning Man are converting a Boeing 747 jumbo jet into an art car.
The U.S. Air Force’s unmanned X-37B space plane landed quietly back on earth over the weekend after having been in orbit for the past 674 days “conducting experiments.” Measuring 29′ 3″ long and 9′ 6″ high with a 14′ 11″ wingspan, the plane is thought to be some type of “space bomber spy plane” that is tracking Chinese movements outside of earth’s atmosphere. The military won’t confirm the speculation.
Richard Mosse (of infrared photography fame) directed this short “Death Is Elsewhere” on the USS Theodore Roosevelt. Featuring the X-47B drone in maneuvers on the aircraft carrier, it’s an up close look at the beautiful design of one of the pilotless killers.
A United Flight from Newark to Denver had to be diverted to Chicago for a time-out yesterday after two passengers got into tussle over a reclining seat. It all started when a man used the Knee Defender—a lock that jams up the reclining capabilities of the forward seat—to prevent the lady in front of him from reclining while he was typing away on his laptop. After the man refused a flight attendant’s request to remove the banned device, the furious woman in front took the matter into her own hands and tossed her cup of water all over the business-minded traveler. Emotions kept increasing, and the plane was forced to make a pit stop to hand the big babies over to the TSA, who promptly dismissed the case as “a customer service issue.” The real kicker here though? The grown-up children had been previously sitting in the airline’s “economy plus” section.
