In grade school and beyond, we learn about Christopher Columbus and his pioneering voyage of 1492. Merely two decades after it, however, European explorers stumbled on the Pacific, an ocean roughly twice as large as the Atlantic and far more difficult to navigate. Polynesian navigators were the first to cross the Pacific from west to east by island-hopping from the coast of China to the Americas.

Saildrone has been doing just that with its fleet of autonomous science vessels, and the company has now raised a massive $100M round C to pursue its ro-boat aspirations further. Saildrone's boats have been in continuous use for years now, making all kinds of interesting voyages that would be too dangerous or too tedious for a human crew to attempt. For instance earlier this month one of the vessels sailed straight into a hurricane for a NOAA project to better understand these increasingly frequent and violent storms.

A new study in Nature Computational Science shows that people’s brains aren’t optimized to travel the shortest distance to get to their destinations. Instead, we’re naturally prone to simply choose paths that seem to point toward the destination—the “pointiest path,” so to speak.It’s called vector-based navigation: the formulation of a journey based on angles that a
Hello and welcome back to Max Q. It was a busy week for the space industry! It appears that small rocket startup Astra has identified the root cause of the anomaly that led to its launch failure at the end of August. Evidently, it was due to a propellant leakage, which caused one of the engines to shut down one second after launch, Astra's chief engineer Benjamin Lyon said in a blog post.
