    Huge historic event yesterday: Skynet activated

    X47-b drone landed on aircraft carrier, a first in human history, that we know of...

    Navy drone X-47B lands on carrier deck in historic first - latimes.com

    After two historic carrier landings, Navy's X-47B drone scrubs a third - NBC News.com

    One of only two X-47B drones in the program, Salty Dog 502 touched down for the first time at 1:39 p.m. Wednesday, and snagged the third wire that stretched across the deck (one of many possible wires to grab) before coming to a rapid "arrested" stop. Carrier engineers then launched the aircraft once again from the deck, and after circling, the craft performed a second successful landing, this time hooking the second wire.


    Scary and cool at the same time.

    Skynet Activate!

    No seriously though there will be a time in the near future where wars are fought almost entirely with drones... that is creepy.
