    The Yamaha Motobot met the world at the Tokyo Motor Show this week. Motobot is a motorcycle-riding robot that isn’t as a good a rider as a human yet, but is heading there. High-speed motorcycling takes control and accuracy, and Yamaha hopes to put that to use in designing safer motorcycles. Read more here: http://pops.ci/7ghUJm (Credit: Yamaha)

    Three months after New Horizons flew close to Pluto this summer, NASA released a picture of Pluto’s crescent. Taken by New Horizon’s Multi-spectral Visible Imaging Camera 11,000 miles away, the image shows Pluto’s deep layers of hazy atmosphere. On the right, sunlit side of the photo are icy plane Sputnik Planum accompanied by the Norgay Montes and Hillary Montes. (Credit: NASA/JHUAPL/SwRI)

    A surveillance blimp escaped from a military compound in Maryland on Wednesday. The 200-ft long aircraft floated over to Pennsylvania, chaperoned by two fighter jets for security. By the time it finally grounded, it had taken a 3 hour journey that downed multiple power lines. It remains unclear how the blimp broke loose.

    Flood water from the devastating rains in South Carolina this month has now made it out to the Atlantic Ocean, carrying with it sediment and fertilizer. The NASA-NOAA Suomi NPP satellite has imaged the runoff as it interacts with ocean current. Climatologists can use imagery like this to better understand the wind and water patterns.

    The Atacama Desert in Chile typically receives little to no rain each year, but the effects of El Niño has changed that this year. Some parts of the desert have received 14 years worth of rain in just one day, resulting in a sea of pink flowers. (Credit: Twitter user Tomás Cuadra Ordenes)
