CMU Tartan Racing Team and their vehicle "Boss":
Tartan Racing Team Tartan Racing Team's Boss The Carnegie Mellon Tartan Racing Team is an entrant in the DARPA Urnban Challenge.
The competition takes place Saturday 11/3/2007 at the former George Air Force Base in Victorville, CA.
The Urban Challenge features driverless ground vehicles maneuvering in a mock city environment, executing simulated military supply missions while merging into moving traffic, navigating traffic circles, negotiating busy intersections, and avoiding obstacles.
Image Credits- Team: DARPA web site, Boss: Vincent Zeng/tartanracing.org
Update: Boss won the Darpa Urban Challenge!

ISS SPACEWALK:
ISS Spacewalk (2007Jul23) --- Astronaut Clay Anderson, Expedition 15 flight engineer, waves to the camera while participating in a session of extravehicular activity (EVA) as construction continues on the International Space Station.
During the 7-hour 41-minute spacewalk, Anderson and cosmonaut Fyodor N. Yurchikhin (out of frame), commander representing Russia's Federal Space Agency, installed a television camera stanchion, reconfigured a power supply for an antenna assembly, and performed several get-ahead tasks. Also, while riding on the end of the Canadarm2, Anderson jettisoned the Early Ammonia Servicer (EAS) by shoving it opposite of the station's direction of travel. The station's robotic arm end effector is at left.
