In the United States, from the end of August 2015 until the end of January 2016, there were “519 incidents involving passenger aircraft and unmanned drones”!

Okay, so this is really cool. Airbus is using something they’re calling “smart glasses” — they’re more like goggles, really — that allow people to use their mind, eyes, and head to explore new plane models.

I’ve written about various ways people go missing in several of my books. Since I’m a mystery/thriller/suspense writer, the answers are usually crime-related, of course.

We’ve been talking lately about Cape Canaveral, and this week I dug up some more fun facts that you might find interesting: The Astronaut Beach House You know about Cape Canaveral Air Force Station […]
Where do great minds think? I often wonder where other authors do their thinking. I know Lee Child works from an office in his Manhattan apartment.
