Scientists say a world that's 490 light-years away qualifies as the first confirmed Earth-sized exoplanet that could sustain life as we know it — but in an environment like nothing we've ever seen. http://www.advexon.com The planet, known as Kepler-186f, is "more of an Earth cousin than an Earth twin," Elisa Quintana, an astronomer at the SETI Institute at NASA Ames Research Center, told the journal Science.

22 teams selected for final stage of Space Robotics Challenge Phase 2

22 teams selected for final stage of Space Robotics Challenge Phase 2 NASA, in partnership with Space Center Houston, has selected 22 qualifying teams to compete in the competition round of Phase 2 of the Space Robotics Challenge. Eligible teams will advance to the final virtual competition round, which will begin in late January. Phase 2 of the Space Robotics Challenge a NASA Centennial Challenge, is a $1 million prize competition to advance autonomous robotic operations for space exploration missions on the surface of other worlds, such as the Moon and Mars. While many of NASA’s planetary surface robotic systems already have some autonomous capabilities that can fulfill a desired concept of operations, the agency envisions a future when humans and robots are working and living together ...

The Jet Propulsion Laboratory W/ Doug Ellison – Part 1

The Jet Propulsion Laboratory W/ Doug Ellison - Part 1 I had a weekend trip to LA for TwitchCon and I took the opportunity to visit Opportunity.... or at least a model of this robot and its extended family. Doug Ellison heard I was coming and helped me get access to the usual public tour and some extra bits behind the scenes. I grabbed a ton of footage and this is going to be a 3 part series, but Doug did an amazing job of narrating a lot of the details we don't normally get to hear about. https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/
