space-elevator-japan-obayashi

Japanese construction giant Obayashi announced earlier this week that they will have an elevator to space constructed by 2050. Reaching almost 60,000 miles off the earth’s surface, transport time for humans and cargo up the space elevator will be roughly 7 days, which is really nothing at all in light years. According to the company, it is because of the development of carbon nanotechnology that “fantasy can now become a reality.” Bring down the mothership.

A noodle vendor in northern China has been detained on drug charges because he was serving noodles laced with opium to his customers. When asked to explain why he had been serving such soothing soup, the vendor said he “added it to his food to make it taste better and to improve his business.” Which makes total sense and brings us to this question; if there were Noodle dens, would you visit one?

So…are robots set to destroy us all? by Michael Odell

With walking, talking joke-cracking robots now a reality, Michael Odell looks into what exactly lies ahead for mankind in the age of artificial intelligence. Are these machines really just here to aid us – or will we end up in a world that mirrors the likes of ‘The Terminator’, Mary Shelley’s ‘Frankenstein’…or even ‘Wall-E’?
