These Robots Drill Through Ice In The Hunt For Life In Other Planets

Explorer and engineer Bill Stone has been steadfast in his desire to travel to space since he watched the first astronauts land on the moon as a boy. Today, he’s closer than ever to launching his own inventions—advanced unmanned robots called “Cryobots”— into space to understand whether life exists beyond our planet. With help from NASA, his team is testing these bots in the most remote corners of our planet in order to one day collect data from space that could turn science fiction into reality.

Crushing things using a hydraulic press was a big thing during the early part of this year. But now, it’s time to think about a less destructive yet equally mezmerizing way to destroy things. Thankfully, people nowadays are always in search of unique ways to pass the time and we have found another channel to binge watch on Youtube. The WaterJet Channel, on Youtube, has recently carved a perfect-looking pumpking using a 60,000 psi water jet cutter. Watch how this machine was able to execute this task perfectly. What a fun and less messy way to carve pumpkins!
