It is easy to imagine what society will be like if robots played a larger role in everyday lives. Well, it turns out, the future sits closer than predicted. In mid-February, Boston Dynamics posted a video demonstrating their SpotMini quadruped robot of the Darpa Robotics Challenge extending an arm out of its head to turn a handle and open a door. Boston Dynamics also recently developed robots that can run, jump, and even flip. These were designed to help improve techniques in catching criminals.

Boston Dynamics has made massive developments in robot technology, but some people fear that robots will eventually take our jobs or become too advanced.

SpaceX also recently launched their newest and biggest rocket yet, the Falcon Heavy into orbit, with CEO Elon Musk’s own Tesla convertible onboard. As part of the experiment, the boosters had to detach from the rocket and land with pinpoint accuracy on landing pads. This launch was done to demonstrate that the Falcon Heavy can transport large payloads. This will eventually lead to the ability to send more large equipment into space and set up stations on the moon, and possibly other planets.
