There are plenty of very good, fun, and helpful things that drones can do — things like monitoring crops and delivering beer and saving lives. Unfortunately, over the weekend, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) released the first draft of its rules for commercial drones, and guess what? The rules would make a lot of those things illegal.
Hacks have been popping up all over the place recently. Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter and various news organisations. And off-shore oil rigs aren’t to be left out. According to the Houston Chronicle, more than one of the things have been “incapacitated” by malware that can be traced back to the internet’s most common vices: pirated music and porn.
The US Coast Guard reports that an oil platform 27.3km south-east of Grand Isle, Louisiana owned by the Houston-based firm Black Elk Energy caught fire this morning. It has confirmed that two people are dead and two are missing. While it’s impossible not to think immediately of 2010’s Deep Water Horizon disaster, it’s too early to tell the extent of the damage so far.
Though they weigh as much as 55,000 tonnes, the massive semi-submersible oil rigs dotting the Gulf of Mexico can still sink when faced with a hurricane’s onslaught. And there’s only one way to pull the rigs’ 6800-tonne decks off the seafloor after such a catastrophe — with America’s heaviest-lifting ship, the VB 10,000.
