2013-12-03 09:58:18

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A team of engineers from MIT has announced the development of a highly-efficient lidar rangefinder; a device that allows autonomous vehicles to ‘see’ what is in front of them and surveyors to measure distances. According to a new report published in the journal Science, the new rangefinder can gauge depth based on a single photon – a 100-fold improvement in efficiency compared to conventional systems. The engineering team said...

Satellite -- A satellite is an object that orbits another object. With sufficient tangential velocity, the object does not collide with the primary object it orbits, but maintains a distance from that object as the rate at which it falls towards that object is similar to the rate that it travels away, thus the object orbits the primary object and becomes a satellite. In other words: gravitational force serves as the centripetal force needed to make the object circle the primary...
