Congratulations to the Ingenuity #MarsHelicopter team on the first powered flight on another planet!

How far could robotic rotorcraft like Ingenuity take us in space exploration? Far. Very far.

Let’s talk about titans and dragonflies. 1/4
Saturn’s moon Titan is bigger than Mercury! With a soupy atmosphere thicker than Earth's and only 1/7th the gravity, it’s the perfect place to explore with a flying rover. 2/4
The surface is loaded with enigmatic features like dunes of weird carbonaceous material and mountains of ice-rock. It even has boulders and pebbles created by liquid methane, as seen in this image from @esa's Huygens probe that landed on Titan. 3/4 photograph of rocky terrain...

Two years ago today, our Cassini spacecraft entered the atmosphere of Saturn, becoming part of the planet it had explored for 13 years.

This was not the end of the story.
The science has continued. Here are just some of the discoveries that scientists have made with Cassini data in the past couple of years. For starters, they’ve finally solved a long-standing mystery — the length of a Saturn day:
As Cassini dove close to Saturn during its final year, the spacecraft provided intricate detail on the workings of the planet’s complex rings, recent analysis shows:

1/n #NASA dnes rozhodla, že další misí, která se dočká realizace, bude #DragonFly. Bude se jednat o quadrokoptéru, která zamíří.... a teď se podržte.... k Saturnovo měsíci Titan. Ano, k tomu samému měsíci, na kterém úspěšně přistála evropská sonda #Huygens v roce 2005! Image
2/n Titan je přitom vyjma Země jediným dalším tělesem ve sluneční soustavě na jehož povrchu se nachází kapalina! V případě Titanu se ale nejedná o vodu, ale o kapalné uhlovodíky. Cílem sondy bude tenhle fascinující svět obklopený hustou atmosférou detailně prozkoumat. Image
3/n Jelikož by sonda měla být quadrokopitéra napájena radioaktivním pohonem, to jí umožní operovat na povrchu Titanu dlouho. Je tak šance, že oproti Huygensu, který byl statickou sondou, DragonFly procestuje nad povrchem Titanu stovky (!) kilometrů. A to bude pecka :) Image

Google announces overhaul of internal review process for controversial projects after backlash over China censored search plan:… #Dragonfly
Hi @Kent_Walker, could you please explain why of the 100 reviews you have conducted so far under Google's new internal ethics review structure, Dragonfly was not included? Shouldn't it have been at the top of the list?…

NEW: Google censored China search plan "effectively ended" after major internal dispute. Secret data analysis operation integral to the project shut down after @theintercept exposed it & the company's furious privacy team confronted executives:… #Dragonfly
Key to this story is, a Chinese-language web directory service that claims to be “China’s most used homepage.” Google purchased the site in 2008 from Cai Wensheng, a billionaire Chinese entrepreneur.
Unlike most Google-owned websites — such as YouTube & is not blocked in China & can be freely accessed by people in the country using any standard internet browser. That makes it uniquely valuable for the company.

I spoke to @YonatanZunger, who was until last year a 14-year veteran of Google & one of the leading engineers at the company. He was among a small group who had been asked to work on Dragonfly -- he was tasked with producing a privacy review of the China search engine.
Zunger is the first person with direct involvement in Dragonfly to go on the record about the project. He told me it was managed in a "highly unusual" way from the outset.
Zunger said that in early 2017 he pointed out to executives managing Dragonfly that Chinese people could be at risk of interrogation or detention if they were found to have used Google to seek out information banned by the government.

NEW: Google built a prototype of a censored search engine for China that links users’ searches to their phone numbers, making it easier for Chinese authorities to monitor people’s queries:… #Dragonfly
Google compiled a censorship blacklist for the search engine that included terms such as “human rights,” “student protest,” & “Nobel Prize” in Mandarin, according to information newly obtained by @theintercept.
The search platform also appeared to have been tailored to replace weather & air pollution data with info provided by an unnamed source in Beijing. The Chinese government has a record of manipulating details about pollution in the country’s cities.

NEW: Google executives misled staff in a meeting Thursday on the company's China censorship plans. Here's 13 questions they've been dodging & must answer. #Dragonfly…
Google CEO Sundar Pichai claimed in the meeting that Dragonfly was an “exploratory” project -- which contradicts information contained in internal Google documents & statements made by senior Google officials on the project, seen by The Intercept.
As recently as last month, Google’s search engine chief Ben Gomes told Google staff who were working on Dragonfly that they should have it ready to be “brought off the shelf and quickly deployed.”

Google employees have circulated a letter that condemns the Dragonfly project & criticises the secrecy around it. "We urgently need more transparency, a seat at the table, & a commitment to clear and open processes: Google employees need to know what we’re building," they write.

Revealed: Google is planning to launch a censored search engine in China that will blacklist websites & search terms about human rights, democracy, political opposition, academic studies, religion, & peaceful protest:…
The confidential project - code-named "Dragonfly" - has been underway for more than a year. It's a dramatic shift in Google's policy on China nearly a decade after the internet giant pulled its search engine out of the country, citing concerns about "forces of totalitarianism."
A source familiar w/ the plans is raising concerns about the censored search platform, saying Google is "collaborating in the oppression of [China's] people." Amnesty International has condenmed the project, calling it "a big disaster for the information age."
