The plan is for NASA to soon switch over sometime soon to using its own rockets — built by SpaceX and Boeing (NYSE:BA) and Lockheed Martin’s (NYSE:LMT) United Launch Alliance joint venture — but it remains an open question when these companies will have their spacecraft ready for use. In the meantime, American astronauts must continue to fork over $82 million a seat in payment for rides aboard Soyuz.

He explains to CNBC: “AI is the singular thing that will be larger than all of human tech revolutions added together — including electricity, [the] industrial revolution, internet, mobile internet — because AI is pervasive. It is the decision-engine that will replace people.”…….Read More
