“The newest humanoid robot from NASA just might be mistaken for a superhero.
The space agency’s new Valkyrie — a 6 foot 2 inch tall (1.9 meters) robot with a glowing NASA logo on its chest — bears an uncanny resemblance to Marvel’s superhero Iron Man, but this space age automaton was built for work, not comic book heroics. A team of engineers at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Tex., designed and built Valkyrie in just nine months, according to press reports.”

7-Year-Old Zora Ball Is the World’s Youngest Game Programmer
The youngest person to create a full version of a mobile application video game. A first grader at Philadelphia’s Harambee Institute of Science and Technology Charter School, she’s already more accomplished than everyone you know.
Ball built the app in the Bootstrap programming language, and unveiled her game at FATE’s “Bootstrap Expo” at the University of Pennsylvania.
Apparently some grumpy olds were suspicious that her older brother was really the mastermind behind the program, but Zora showed them. When asked to reconfigure the app on the spot, Ball showed naysayers what was up when she executed the request perfectly.
“We expect great things from Zora, as her older brother, Trace Ball, is a past STEM Scholar of the Year,” said Harambee Science Teacher Tariq Al-Nasir. No pressure, baby geniuses, but there’s an entire world for you to save. Please hurry.
YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES
A step in an amazing direction because it’s girls like her that will lead the next generations of fangirls and actually take charge and make the games of the future. Also goes to show why funding for black gir codes is important. More girls like Zora need a chance to shine
Amazing awesome girl!
This little girl is amazing! This is why you all need to support diversity/ tech inclusion programs like Black Girls Code. They are starting little black girls out as young as six years old and introducing them into technology through coding, robotics, science, math ect.
this is amazing

For a Men’s magazine they stage-managed themselves with other heterosexual socialites [including Herbert Grönemeyer, August Diehl, Moses Pelham, Thomas D] as homosexual couples, aiming more tolerance. (…) The issue now very relevant for the athletes before the olympic games in Sotschi.
Well done, GQ. Well known people from different areas supporting the movement in one of the most successfull man’s magazines.
I think this will help to spread the word about the laws in russia, so people are more aware of the issue. And this consolidates our position towards this (at least I hope so).
FIVE YEAR MISSION, SPOCK!
