This edition of Futuris looks at the new, more intelligent breed of remote-operated vehicles (ROVs) and how they will benefit us. If an undersea mission is too deep or risky for human divers, researchers can send down an ROV, as we discover in the French city of Marseille. At the time of our visit, the Janus research vessel was about to leave Marseilles port for a day at sea. It carries a piece of technology often used to observe or manipulate items on the sea floor: a pressure-resistant robotic platform tethered to the ship by a very long cable. “Humans can’t go beyond a certain depth,” explained Peter Weiss, robotics and automation engineer, Comex. “If we want to go below 700 metres then we need a robot. That’s when we use the so called ROVs — to perform these kind of deep-sea operations.” A full look at #DexROV underwater! inea_eu</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/EU_H2020">EU_H2020jgspaceapps</a> <a … [Read more...] about How will the new intelligent breed of ROVs benefit us?
Italy’ s Margherita Hack was not only a highly-respected astrophysicist but a popular science writer, public intellectual and civil rights activist. She died at the weekend at the age of 91. Known as the ‘lady of the stars’, her research contributed to the spectral classification of many stars and the asteroid 8558 Hack is named after her. She led the observatory at Trieste from 1964 to 1987 – the first woman to hold the position. One of her many gifts was the ability to explain the most complicated of concepts in such a way that most people could understand them. She said: “I’m an atheist in the sense that I do not believe in God, I do not believe in the afterlife. I believe that the soul is our brain. It’s impossible to scientifically prove either that God exists, or that God does not exist. The idea of God does not convince me. I prefer to believe that there is matter and that matter has the properties we observe.” When … [Read more...] about Science says ‘ciao’ to Italy’s Margherita Hack: the ‘lady of the stars’
