Since 2012, Mark Devries has been flying drones over America's largest factory farms. In just-released aerial footage, he reveals the sheer size of the massive, toxic, feces-filled "lagoons" that they create.
Those lagoons you're looking at belong to Smithfield Foods, which bills itself as is "the largest pork producer and processor in the United States." They are often hundreds of feet long, and are fetid cesspools of wastethey are the result of pig excrement being sprayed out of the compounds where the animals are packed in like dirt-encrusted, antibiotics-loaded sardines.
"These factory farms make it exceedingly difficult to see the giant, open-air cesspools of toxic waste on their property," Devries tells me in an email. "They are surrounded by trees, and often barbed-wire fences. With drones, I can bypass the trees and barbed wire, and see close-up what is being hidden."
What he did end up seeing repulsed him, he said.
"Even though I knew what to expect in the abstract, I was...
The reopening of diplomatic relations with Cuba means the people of the small Caribbean island are likely to finally get internet access that's on par with the rest of the world.
Today, President Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro announced that the two countries, which have had no formal relations since the early 1960s, will begin normalizing relations. Though the repeal of the United States' longstanding trade embargo will require Congressional action, Obama said he will use executive orders to ease restrictions on travel and banking. The United States will also open an embassy in Havana.
What's this all have to do with the internet there? Well, the submarine cable system that connects much of the world with fiber optics has basically bypassed Cuba. Instead, the country has been relying on extremely old and slow satellite technology to give its people (limited and censored) internet access. Obama specifically said he will allow American telecom companies to work with Cuba.

For every space launch in history, the rocket being used first ignites, travels for a bit with the satellite (or spaceship, or whatever), then separates and crash lands somewhere. Its carcass is useless, broken, and expensive. Friday, for the first time in human history, a space company will try to recover its rocket so that it can be flown again.
SpaceX will try to recover part of its Falcon 9 rocket by landing the first stage of it (most rockets have separate stages, which each contain engines and propellantthe Falcon 9 has two) on a 300 by 100-foot autonomous drone ship. If it's successful, it'll be a huge step toward CEO Elon Musk's goal of reducing the cost of human spaceflight "by a factor of 100."
Rockets are really damn expensive. The Falcon 9 costs upward of $35 million to manufacture. Refueling the first stage costs a couple hundred thousand. And that's after you've got a design. Starting from scratch with research, development, and testing costs, well, many, many millions...
