Big news in the gaming world, with Google launching Stadia, their high performance cloud gaming service, add AI and object recognition to your robots with Nvidia’s $99 board computer, and we must wonder why an entire solar system with star was kicked out of the Milky Way family..hmm…passing bad gas?  Once we have the new Halo interstellar drive we could do an upclose investigation, even though the star was ejected at a phenomenal speed of a million miles an hour!

Back on this planet, the mostlly female millenial Nordic group known at the Northern Star Team are researching the future of education in the Bay area and give us a report on their findings so far. Though their results are preliminary, it does appear that we can look forward to more fun and passion in the educational process..

Did you ever notice that dogs have a sense of North and South?  Observational research shows that they often poop on the North/South access (after circling around a couple of times).  And new research shows that some humans have this ability as well. Who knew and what can these folks do with this hidden superpower? Enjoy..

Some fun space news this week, as we have the first passenger to fly on Virgin Galactic. True, Beth Moses works for the company but still, she wasn’t a pilot or co-pilot, but as astronaut instructor, will be the guide for the first paying passengers about what to expect on their first flight out of the Earth’s atmosphere. We have Dr. Bruce Damer tell us what’s happening with Hayabusa2, the Japanese flight to an asteroid, and it’s efforts to capture some dust and bring it back to Earth for study.  Dr. Bruce tells us why this is exciting and important.

And we finish the show with San Lorenzo Valley Middle School science teacher Rachel Hager hosting a group of SLV students at our KSCO studios, where we discuss with them their efforts to test the San Lorenzo River for potential toxins and pollution.  Our young citizen scientists give us a great report and we look forward to sharing it with you!

Listen Now to Future News 2.19.2019

This show is unique in that Mrs. Future is leading with stories and Dr. Future is responding with comments and queries, kind of the opposite of how the show usually plays.  Why? Because Dr. Future has a touch of laryngitis, and simply has to cut down on the verbiage to preserve his fragile voice.   

Lots of cool Future News this week, including the first Israeli Lunar Lander, AI creating amazing fakes, and Bobby Wilder on the latest in Alzheimer’s research.  Enjoy!
