Australian teenager Kirra-Belle Olsson posted photos on Facebook of the injuries she sustained in a shark attack on Friday, as she made it clear it was not the shark’s fault.

The 13-year-old Rip Curl-sponsored surfer was bitten on the leg by a wobbegong shark while surfing at Avoca Beach, on the central coast of New South Wales. She was about 10 to 15 metres from shore when she said she “dropped in on” the shark, meaning she caught the shark’s wave.

“I took the wave and then I twice felt something grab my foot, and I thought it was a mate behind me trying to scare me,” Olsson told ABC News. “Then the third time it (the shark) swung me around and tried to pull me under.” Read more…

Whether you’re into mining, energy or tourism, there are lots of reasons to explore space. Some “pioneers” even believe humanity’s survival depends on colonizing celestial bodies such as the Moon and Mars, both becoming central hubs for our further journey into the cosmos. Lunar land peddlers have started doing deals already — a one-acre plot can be yours for just 16.75 pounds ($ 26.96).

More seriously, big corporations, rich entrepreneurs and even United States politicians are eyeing up the Moon and its untapped resourcesRussia has plans for a manned colony by 2030 and a Japanese firm wants to build a ring of solar panels around the Moon and beam energy back to Earth. Read more…

How do you keep small drone aircraft safe in the world’s busiest national airspace? One idea is to have them use cellphone networks to feed data back to an air traffic control system made just for drones.

A startup called Airware is working with NASA on a project exploring how to manage the swarms of commercial drones expected to start appearing in U.S. skies. The four-year program will create a series of prototype air traffic management systems and could shape how widely commercial drones can be used. Airware’s main business is selling control software and hardware to drone manufacturers and operators. Read more…
