NASA’s Valkyrie robot is a six-foot ‘superhero’ designed to save you from disasters
NASA has created a robot for DARPA’s upcoming Robotics Challenge Trials. The Valkyrie is a six-foot two humanoid machine with detachable arms, sonar sensors, mounted cameras, and a glowing, Tony Stark-esque circle in the middle of its chest, that the space agency says is mobile and dexterous enough to enter disaster zones to provide search and rescue functions.

As if crying isn’t already an awkward thing. Just imagine crying in microgravity. Thank you Commander Chris Hadfield for manning up and crying in space.

Can You Cry in Space?

Today is turning out to be a totally “Spaced” out day for FTR. Especially since I have added a whole new section on the site for Space Travel (check it out).

To continue this topic, check out this awesome animated GIF of Commander Chris Hadfield showing what happens when you “cry” in space. Brilliant!

diy: Ever wonder what happens when you cry in space?

Voyager 1 is possibly outside of our Solar System now. The farthest any man-made object has traveled. Not sure where the line is since we didn’t put a sign up “Now Leaving Sol, Come Back Soon!”. Either way Voyager Golden Record is a cool website where you can listen and view the data we put on Voyager for whoever may find it out there. Could even be future generations of humans that find it. It was launched in 1977 during the great hey day of space sciences. I wonder what we could do if we tried to do it now. For all we know it will be Amazon that launches the next one.
