The Fermi Paradox explanations: a wide multiverse? (Science video)

In this 30 minute-long science video from the talented Isaac Arthur, we investigate the multiverse as one of the potential explanations for the Fermi Paradox (a.k.a. where is anybody?). That is to say, the same basic premise as the Stephen Baxter and Terry Pratchett books, The Long Earth, where humanity discovers a possibly infinite series of parallel worlds […]

Ingenuity rover launches heli-drone for first off-world planetary flight (science news).

NASA’s Ingenuity Mars Helicopter just became the first aircraft in history to make a powered, controlled flight on another planet, today. The solar-powered helicopter first became airborne at 12:33 Local Mean Solar Time (Mars time) – a time the Ingenuity team determined would have optimal energy and flight conditions. Altimeter data indicate Ingenuity climbed to […]
