Secret to a Successful Relationship!

Monday, September 8th, 2014

In 1964, Roddenberry proposed the original Star Trek TV series to Desilu Studios as “like Wagon Train, a Wagon Train to the stars.” The network rejected the show’s first pilot, “The Cage”, starring Jeffrey Hunter as Enterprise Captain Christopher Pike; however, NBC executives, still impressed with the concept, made the unusual decision to commission a second pilot: “Where No Man Has Gone Before”. The first regular episode (“The Man Trap”) of Star Trek aired on Thursday, September 8, 1966.

Birth of the First Real Tricorder

Tuesday, November 17th, 2009

NASA Gas TricorderMany years from now when Tricorders are common place, we just might look back on October 30th 2009 as the birth of the first real tricorder. While the iPhone currently has motion, sound, light, location, radio wave and distance sensors, Jing Li a physical scientist, along with several other researchers at NASA’s Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California developed a working prototype of a harmful gas detector for the iPhone.

The team, working under the Cell-All program in the Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate, created a small stamp sized detector to be plugged in to an iPhone to “collect, process and transmit sensor data.” The sensor can detect and identify low concentrations of airborne ammonia, chlorine gas and methane.
