Mars HiRISE

The High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment is basically a 143-pound camera on board the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. It consists of a 0.5 m (19.7 in) aperture reflecting telescope, the largest so far of any deep space mission, which allows it to take pictures of Mars with resolutions of 0.3 m/pixel (about 1 foot), resolving objects below a meter across. This false-color subimage shows the north polar layered deposits at top and darker materials at bottom exposed in a scarp at the head of Chasma Boreale, a large canyon eroded into the layered deposits. Jan Frojdman wanted to see animated versions of these images, so he created a 3D conversion to make it a reality. Continue reading for another video and more information.

Lockheed Martin Laser Weapon

Lockheed Martin's combined fiber laser uses multiple beams generated through fiber optics to focus a single, intense laser beam on its target, and the company is set to delivery its first 60 kilowatts system to the US Army. An earlier 30kW fiber laser weapon was used by Lockheed Martin disable a truck from over a mile away back in 2015. "The inherent scalability of this beam combined laser system has allowed us to build the first 60kW-class fiber laser for the U.S. Army. We have shown that a powerful directed energy laser is now sufficiently light-weight, low volume and reliable enough to be deployed on tactical vehicles for defensive applications on land, at sea and in the air," said Robert Afzal, Ph.D. Future applications include drones, small aircraft, and even rockets.
