    Filed under "Science" but come on, this is really "Gaming."

    NASA engineers have built four robots nicknamed "Swarmies" to test whether a group of robots can autonomously and effectively scout an area for resources, and they've model the software design after how ants do the same thing. It's like a very complicated, expensive game of SimAnt.

    "You can't take the sky from me!" -Elon Musk, probably.

    We've been pretty excited about SpaceX lately with their Falcon 9 rocket launches and landings, the Dragon V2 crew module, and their new spaceport in Texas, but some members of congress don't share our enthusiasm.
