California forces to withdraw autonomous taxis
Posted on: 2/8/2017 at 9:05 AM
After skipping traffic lights and endangering the circulation of cyclists, California has said enough. The Department of Motor Vehicles of that state has eliminated the registration of autonomous taxis, which for practical purposes means that they have to return to the garage.

The move comes after the negotiations between Uber and the administration came to a standstill. The Motor Department threatened the company with legal sanctions if it did not withdraw the experimental taxis because they did not have the permission to drive autonomously.
The day that Sweden started to drive on the right
Posted on: 2/8/2017 at 9:02 AM
a day known at the time as day H (Dagen H) or its name in Swedish Högertrafikomläggningen (the traffic circulation change to the right). So before reaching that chaotic date and to understand a bit better why a change that would affect citizens so much, let's see what is the reason that on the planet some drive on the right and others on the left.

Dagen Högertrafik, that H day, was obviously not a decision that was taken lightly, on the contrary, it had been planned for years before its application, mainly in recognition of the inherent problems that arose from the fact that among the nations of Continental Europe, Sweden was the only country where people still drove on the left. In fact, all the immediate neighbors to Sweden already did (Norway and Finland mainly, since they are land border with the country).
NASA's new space taxis
Posted on: 2/8/2017 at 9:01 AM
NASA has just announced the next phase of Launch America, its plan to create a new fleet of shuttles and capsules that will put their astronauts in orbit. Boeing and SpaceX will be the finalist private companies that will compete to manage that fleet of space "taxis".

In essence, the $6.8 billion project will go halfway to fund Boeing's CST-100 capsules, and Dragon V2 from Elon Musk's company. Now, both companies will have to carry out test flights in which they demonstrate to NASA that their prototypes can climb into orbit and connect successfully to the International Space Station.

The agency will choose only one of the companies based on the performance of the test flights. With the Launch America program, NASA hopes to reduce the current costs of sending astronauts into space, as well as becoming independent of the Soviet rockets they currently use to that purpose In the future, these capsules could even be used for space tourism.
