Tundra Versus the F-150 – What’s Wrong with Toyota?

Can the Toyota Tundra go toe-to-toe with the Ford F-150, and does it make sense to try? The F-150 is the most popular vehicle in the U.S., despite a 12 percent drop in sales. Ford still managed to sell 787, 422 F-150s in 2020. Toyota sold a little over 109,000 Tundras in 2020, down two […] The post Tundra Versus the F-150 – What’s Wrong with Toyota? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

NASA Reveals Its Plan for First Helicopter Flight on Mars

So far, human exploration on Mars has been measured in the circular motion of orbiters above the planet and the meandering trails of rovers on the ground below. Early next month, NASA will enter the elusive space between those two realms, with the launch of the box-shaped helicopter Ingenuity.Read more...

Scientists Discover New Molecule, Possible Basis For Life, on Saturn's Moon Titan

CNN reports: Saturn's largest moon, Titan, is the only moon in our solar system that has a thick atmosphere. It's four times denser than Earth's. And now, scientists have discovered a molecule in it that has never been found in any other atmosphere. The particle is called cyclopropenylidene, or C3H2, and it's made of carbon and hydrogen. This simple carbon-based molecule could be a precursor that contributes to chemical reactions that may create complex compounds. And those compounds could b...

NASA scientists discovered a 'very weird' molecule in the atmosphere of Saturn's moon Titan. It could point to alien life.

This near-infrared, color mosaic from NASA's Cassini spacecraft shows the sun glinting off of Titan's north polar seas. NASA/JPL-Caltech/Univ. Arizona/Univ. Idaho NASA astronomers discovered a "very weird little molecule" called cyclopropenylidene in the atmosphere of Saturn's moon Titan. Scientists think alien life could survive in Titan's underground salty ocean. This molecule could serve as a stepping stone to more complex molecules that play important roles in sustaining life. ...

16 plutonium-powered space missions shaping our understanding of space — including the NASA rover that will search for alien life on Mars

NASA last week launched its Mars 2020 Perseverance rover to hunt for signs of ancient alien life. Once on Mars, Perseverance will be powered by a radioisotope thermoelectric generator. The nuclear "battery" is fueled by a rare human-made material called plutonium-238. Perseverance is just the latest in a long line of groundbreaking, plutonium-powered spacecraft that have changed our understanding of the solar system.

I pitted the Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado, RAM 1500, Toyota Tundra, and Nissan Titan in a battle of full-size pickups. Here's how they ranked. (GM, F, FCAU)

I've driven and reviewed all five of the full-size pickup trucks that dominate yearly new-vehicle sales in the US. After another big year in 2019 for pickups, I decided to compare the Ford F-150, the Chevy Silverado, the RAM 1500, the Toyota Tundra, and the Nissan Titan. The global coronavirus pandemic has hurt auto sales, but in the US, pickup trucks have continued to attract customers. I reviewed a variety of trim levels and price points, as well as option packages and engines, so this compa...

Titan Is Migrating Away From Saturn 100 Times Faster Than Previously Predicted (slashdot)

According to a study published in the journal Nature Astronomy, the orbit of Saturn's moon Titan is expanding at a rate about 100 times faster than expected. "The research suggests that Titan was born much closer to Saturn and migrated out to its current distance of 1.2 million kilometers (about 746,000 miles) over 4.5 billion years," reports Phys.Org. From the report: In the work detailed in the Nature Astronomy paper, two teams of researchers each used a different technique to measure Titan's ...

I drove a $50,000 Nissan Titan to see if this updated full-size pickup could finally take on Ford, Chevy, and RAM

I tested a 2020 Nissan Titan Pro-4X pickup truck, a longtime also-ran in the red-hot US full-size market. The Nissan Titan has always had a tough time stealing buyers from Ford, Chevy, GMC, and RAM, as well as Toyota. But as pickup-truck sales have boomed, the Titan doubled deliveries in 2017 and held on to those gains in 2018. So Nissan elected to update the half-ton for 2020. My well-equipped tester cost about $50,000 — an appealing price for a truck with this much going on. I kinda sorta li...

Place Your Bets: Nissan Envisions a Loftier Titan

Nissan sales tanked in 2019, following the previous year’s lead, but the brand’s Titan pickup line performance was worse than a grade school talent audition. Changes to the Titan and Titan XD for 2020 aren’t likely to move the needle in a substantive way. Which makes word of a potential off-road bruiser of a Titan […] The post Place Your Bets: Nissan Envisions a Loftier Titan appeared first on The Truth About Cars.
