Elon Musk, SpaceX, global warming satellites and self-driving motorcycles (What the Future)

Science
No. This is not a clip from Terminator six. This is real. But don't expect to see it on the road any time soon. Welcome to What The Future. On todays show, BMW's self driving motorcycle. California's plan to fight climate change from space, and we finally learned who will be the first paying passenger on a spaces mission to the moon. Okay, this might be the coolest video you see all week. BMW modified this motorcycle to drive itself. Now the bike can't start on its own. Somebody has to get it balanced and moving, but once it's going, it can do pretty much everything else. Throttle, Hold brake, steer and stay balanced. This is just a prototype. The goal isn't to put it into production, but BMW is using this to study riding dynamics. And hopefully build new safety technologies in the future. So think features like lane assist and automatic braking. Who knows when any of that would actually go into production bikes, but BMW says it hopes to implement findings from this research soon. All right, Governor Moonbeam is living up to his nickname. California governor Jerry Brown his state will launch satellite to monitor climate change. Actually he said, So we gonna launch our own setelite, our own game setelite Okay why the fighting words? Brown suggested that the Trump administration is using NASA enough for climate research. California team up with company called Planet Rat it specializes in tiny setelite In fact there more than 150 planet live satellites taking images of the Earth right now. The plan is to develop satellites that can pinpoint the source of pollutant. That data would be made available to the public along with the help of the Environmental Defense Fund. No timetable on when California would launch It's for satellites. We do know when SpaceX plans to send a tourist to the moon and we know who it is. On Monday, Elon Musk said Yusaka Maezawa will be the first paying SpaceX passenger. He is the Japanese billionaire that founded online fashion mall Zozotown. And he is not going alone. He says he'll invite six to eight artists. He hopes they'll create art based on their experience for a project he is calling dear Moon. Maezawa hasn't said how he'll select the lucky [UNKNOWN] but if you're watching I'd like to consider myself a bit of an artist. It's not clear how much coin he dropped for this. All we know is he has already put a deposit down that Musk called a quote, non trivial amount. Now if all goes as planned, the mission launches in 2023. [SOUND] And one more note, NASA's test has sent back its first image. And the satellite has already found its first new planet. Scientists call it a super Earth that's orbiting a star nearly identical to our own sun. That's gonna do it for this week. Thank you for watching What the Future. I'm in the open, we'll see next time. [MUSIC]
