When Boston Dynamics' Atlas Robot Performs Parkour Actions Like a Human

Boston Dynamics now has some amazing robots like Spot which are currently on sale in the market even though the price is quite expensive.

But not only Spot, but Boston Dynamics now also has several other types of robots that come with their respective abilities, and recently they have demonstrated the capabilities of one of their newest robots, Atlas.

Through a short video uploaded to YouTube, Boston Dynamics shows how the ability of its Atlas robot can perform various parkour actions smoothly.

Because Atlas itself has legs and arms like humans, the robot can also do things like jumping, running, and doing backflips.

Boston Dynamics itself says that parkour is one of the most perfect ways to experiment with Atlas and in the video, it can be seen that this robot can maintain its own body balance when doing activities that are quite difficult.

Surely the presence of this Atlas can help many things in the future. We’ll see when Boston Dynamics will also sell the robot along with Atlas, which is now widely used for various purposes.

Starship SN20 can make an orbital flight in a few weeks. SpaceX is preparing corrections

Starship SN20 is a spacecraft that SpaceX has been preparing for a long time. The machine is now assembled and in Boca Chica, it is accompanied by the first stage called Super Heavy.

It is he who will enable orbital flight. When can it be expected? Here the secret was revealed by the founder of the company, Elon Musk.

According to the information provided by Elon Musk in the pages of Twitter, SpaceX will want to conduct an orbital flight of the Starship S20 in the next few weeks.

He claims that everything is basically ready and now the company only expects approval from the relevant authorities. Only then will it be possible to implement such a mission.

SpaceX may make changes to the Starship SN20 ship

While the latest prototype is basically ready for launch, there may still be some modifications. Elon Musk has revealed that SpaceX wants to remodel the wings.

They will be made smaller and look slightly different as well. This is to allow, among others on the reduction of elements related to thermal shields. However, these modifications may not appear until later versions.

Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin Company Criticizes SpaceX's Going To The Moon

Some time ago the space companies SpaceX and Blue Origin fought to seize funding from NASA to bring astronauts to the Moon. But the result of the fight was won by SpaceX.

Even though NASA had already decided to choose SpaceX as the company that would help it fly astronauts to the Moon, it was found that Blue Origin did not accept it.

Previously, the company created by Jeff Bezos had made an offer to NASA so that the funds provided could be less than what had been promised, now it has released an infographic that compares its rocket with SpaceX.

Through its official website, Blue Origin said that SpaceX’s Starship rocket has a system that is too complicated and also risky for astronauts who will fly to the Moon later.

Blue Origin also compared SpaceX’s Starship rocket with its rocket which is considered much safer.

It was stated that SpaceX needed 10 trials to land the Starship on the Moon, while the Blue Origin rocket was claimed to only need 3 trials to land on the Moon.

In addition, the size of SpaceX’s Starship rocket is said to be too inconvenient, so astronauts will have to descend to the surface of the Moon in an elevator. While Blue Origin has a shorter rocket so astronauts can descend by using stairs only.

But after all, SpaceX already has a lot more experience in outer space. Because they have also worked with NASA to take astronauts to the ISS twice and everything was run successfully without any problems.

NASA's Perseverance Rover is now actively looking for signs of life on Mars

After successfully landing on Mars some time ago, now NASA’s Perseverance rover is ready to look for signs of ancient microbial life on the red planet.

Previously this rover had explored a number of areas on Mars and collected rocks from the planet. But now the rover will be even more active to search for information on the planet.

Currently, the rover has 43 sample tubes which will later be filled with rock fragments and Martian dust to be sent back to Earth for further investigation. The process was carried out at four locations including Jezero.

Well, after that, Perseverance will then make a long journey to the north, an ancient river that is said to have been one of the sources of life on the planet Mars.

Scientists hope that at this location, the Perseverance rover can find minerals that can later be used to preserve fossils of ancient life after biological processes.

NASA and JPL are now also quite often providing updates regarding their rover while on Mars. Some time ago his party also uploaded a view of the surface of the planet Mars in 360-degree mode on its official YouTube account.
