Firearms have come a long way from the days of the musket and flintlock, but they're also much more complicated and involve trade offs. In preparing for missions, soldiers are often forced to choose between a close quarter or a magnified sight for their assault rifles as there's no one-size-fits-all solution. Raytheon's answer is its ELCAN Specter dual-field-of-view rifle sights that can not only switch easily between magnifications, but now includes a next-generation digital fire control...

A plastic sculpture shaped like a jagged donut now holds the title of first piece of art to be made in space.

To avoid accidents, self-driving cars and drones need to be able to quickly take in their surroundings even in extreme road conditions and bad weather, but conventional optical cameras aren't quite up to the job.

The present and the past mixed today as SpaceX's Falcon 9 blasted off for the International Space Station (ISS) from the same launch pad used by the Apollo 11 mission.

In mid-October of last year, two stubborn helium check valves prevented the probe from entering a closer orbit to the object of its attention – Jupiter. Then, later that month, the craft dipped in and out of safe mode. Because of these hiccups, NASA has just...
