The past month has seen the release of a range of fascinating autonomous vehicles, but none of them are more excitable as the GM Silent Utility Rover Universal Superstructure (Surus) Autonomous Truck. Surus uses two electrical drive units, transforming this into a four-wheel drive truck. Using GM’s Generation 2 Hydrogen Fuel Cell System, Surus boasts a capability of running more than 400 miles of range.

NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg, Expedition 36 flight engineer, equipped with a bungee harness, exercises on the Combined Operational Load Bearing External Resistance Treadmill (COLBERT) in the Tranquility node of the International Space Station. Its use is one of the ways astronauts and cosmonauts maintain muscle mass and bone density in a zero-gravity environment.

The capsule will travel about 3,600 miles (5,800 kilometers) from Earth, then zoom back again at high speeds in order to test various systems, including its heat shielding and resistance to radiation.
