Hands On With the DJI Mavic Pro: A Serious Drone That Fits in Your Daypack

I’ve been a bit slow getting into flying serious drones, after my early experiences with nanocopters and the Parrot made me worry I’d crash an expensive piece of hardware. But with the introduction of DJI’s practically pocket-sized Mavic Pro ($ 999 at Amazon), I decided to take the plunge. At $ 1,000 plus the need for a smartphone, the unit isn’t really any less expensive than a Phantom 4. But it is impressively compact and crams most of the important features of a Phantom 4 Pro into its small chassis. 4K Video, ...

ESA: Time to Get Serious About Removing Space Junk

Humanity has been shooting things into space for a few decades now, and we’ve gotten pretty good at it. What we haven’t gotten so good at is bringing things back down. Scientists have been sounding the alarm about the buildup of space junk for years, a point that was reinforced at the recent European Conference on Space Debris. The message was clear: we need to stop talking about doing something and actually do it before space gets too crowded. We’ve launched some 7,000 spacecraft as a species since 1957 when ...

SNL’s best political guests “I’m not giving up and neither should you.” That’s how Kate McKinnon began this week’s “Saturday Night Live” — in what was one of the more somber and emotional openings in the history of the longtime NBC variety show. McKinnon — dressed as Hillary Clinton — sat at a piano and played Leonard Cohen’s hit, “Hallelujah.” There were no Donald Trump jokes and there was no Alec Baldwin. Once the song ended, McKinnon looked at the camera and told viewers not to give up before delivering ...
