Scientists have, for the past two decades, debated the practicality of a hypothetical engine called EmDrive that would require no form of fuel to propel a spacecraft. That sounds quite out-of-science, right? Of course, a working EmDrive would cancel one of the fundamental laws of physics. However, this anomaly hasn’t discouraged scientists. Many top research organizations, including DARPA and the Advanced Propulsion Physics Laboratory of NASA, are busy in their labs pursuing this course because a breakthrough would be completely extra...
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has one item on its wish list - a β€œsecure messaging and transaction platform” for the U.S. military. The messaging platform would make use of standard encryption and security features of apps such as WhatsApp, Ricochet, or Signal, and also use a decentralized Blockchain-like backbone structure that would make it more resilient to cyberattacks and surveillance. According to a notice looking for proposals, which was recently posted online, DARPA aims to have β€œa secure messaging syst...
