China's groundbreaking lunar rover found nearly 40 feet of dust on the far side of the moon

China landed a spacecraft called Chang'e 4 on the moon's far side in January 2019 — the first country ever to do so. The rover has measured a layer of lunar dust, or regolith, that's "quite thick": It extends 12 meters (39 feet) deep. The moon's dust caused problems for the Apollo missions, and understanding it better could help future spacecraft. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

As I walked past pools and the Holoholo Grill to get there, I heard an emcee with a microphone before I saw him. “We’ve got a lot of great things coming up for you all with the first-ever poke fest on Kauai,” the emcee said. “Why? Because Sam Choy said so!” If you’re talking about poke in Kauai, the name Sam Choy is guaranteed to come up. Choy — a James Beard F...

‘PigeonBot’ brings flying robots closer to real birds

Try as they might, even the most advanced roboticists on Earth struggle to recreate the effortless elegance and efficiency with which birds fly through the air. The “PigeonBot” from Stanford researchers takes a step toward changing that by investigating and demonstrating the unique qualities of feathered flight. On a superficial level, PigeonBot looks a bit, shall we say, like a school project. But a lot of thought went into this rather haphazard-looking contraption. Turns out the way birds fly ...
