MaaS Australia, founded by investors in MaaS Finland, is on board to take the concept to a country very different from Finland.One click would pay for it all and you could choose based on price, time, possibly a preferred route, or maybe even sights and scenes along the way.The monthly commuter package would include all your travel that month, whether by car, bus, taxi or other mode of transportation.As a bonus, this package would cover home grocery order deliveries, too.The economic models for consumers show that most people would save money by only using cars when they need them, along with other transportation services, rather than paying the costs of ownership.It ll be a big change from the long-standing love affair Americans and people in many other countries have had with their cars, and it won t change overnight.
Android Pay is available for UK customers from today, allowing them to make contactless payments to shop terminals, travel around London's TfL networks and make in-app purchases via their smartphones.Apple Pay currently has around 12 million monthly users globally, making it by far the most-used mobile payment platform, following its initial release in the US during October 2014.Comparatively, Android Pay and Samsung Pay trail behind with around five million monthly users each, data from Bloomberg found.While Samsung Pay is limited to compatible Samsung devices, around 80 per cent of the world s smartphones run Android, compared to around 17 per cent for Apple s iOS system.In the UK, the Android/iOS split is around 59 per cent to 35 per cent, according to Kantar Worldpanel ComTech.Works with both contactless and traditional payment terminalsRequires fingerprint authenticationExclusive to Samsung smartphones
Photo: AFPEstablishing a human colony on the moon and travelling to Mars has been the stuff of dreams since the dawn of the space age.They are growing vegetables in soils similar to those found on the moon and Mars, looking for ways to help space pioneers grow their own crops.The US space agency makes ground similar to that on the moon from sand found in an Arizona desert, while Mars crimson soil is scooped from a volcano in Hawaii, Wamelink says.If analyses show that the vegetables contain arsenic, mercury or iron, making them unfit for human consumption, the soil can be purified by growing other plant species such as violets, which absorb the poisons.Extremely cold temperatures – dropping to minus 62 degrees Celsius on Mars – as well as a lack of oxygen, means that lunar or Martian vegetables and fruit could only be grown in a closed and controlled environment.Technology and the know-how to keep astronauts alive on Mars still has a long way to go says Christophe Lasseur, a European Space Agency life support expert, who deals with metabolic aspects of space travel.

Flights are getting cheaper this year, but prices vary depending on your destination.To figure out whether a flight is actually a good deal, Luiz Maykot, a data science analyst for Adobe, came up with a simple formula.The formula is pretty straightforward: multiply the trip s round-trip miles by $0.032, then add $230.Maykot explains how he came up with the formula:I calculated the average price paid by everyone in the data sample, based on how many days in advance they purchased their tickets up to 300 days in advance .Put simply, the number you crunch gives you a general idea of what the majority of flight prices have been in recent years.MarketWatch explains the formula in a little more detail and also includes a calculator to help you do the math, so check out the full post at the link below.
Nathan Brenner was found guilty last year by a magistrate of two counts of operating a commercial passenger vehicle without a licence, and one count of driving a commercial passenger vehicle without driver accreditation.But Victorian county court judge Geoffrey Chettle on Wednesday dismissed the charges and ordered the Taxi Services Commission to pay Brenner s appeal costs.He was charged after an undercover officer used the Uber app to travel from the Hilton hotel to South Yarra.The opposition transport spokesman, David Hodgett, says the government has wasted taxpayers money trying to fight Uber instead of regulating the service to provide industry certainty.This is not about taxis versus Uber but rather what ways we can get our city moving in the most efficient way, he said.The time for excuses is over, the Uber Victoria general manager, Matt Denman, said on Wednesday.
The crazy future of transport: in pictures View GalleryFor a jet or rocket to be classified as hypersonic, it must travel at five times the speed of sound, or Mach 5."You could fly long distances over the Earth very, very quickly.The Antipode would travel at 24 times the speed of soundThe team plans to run 10 trials on the rocket, which has a supersonic combustion engine that uses oxygen for fuel, making it lighter than traditional rockets.Boeing and the German space agency are also working on the project with the US and Australian militaries.Earlier this year a concept design for the Antipode, which could travel from London to New York in just 11 minutes at 12,427 miles per hour, was released.The X-15, operated by the United States Air Force and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration secured the official world record for the highest speed ever reached by a manned, powered aircraft.

The mobile wallet for Android-powered smartphones is opening for business in the UK — its first market outside the U.S. where it launched in September 2015 — starting out on NFC-enabled Android devices running KitKat 4.4 or later.Tap to pay big in the UKNotably, American Express is not yet included in the card types supported it s available in the U.S. though so watch this space .Google last week gave a preview to journalists and analysts to show how Android Pay works, using an Android handset to tap to buy coffee at Holborn Grind and to travel from Holborn Tube station.That might sound sensible if you re a risk-averse consumer or retailer; but fiddly and time-eating if you re someone who is always looking for ways to do things quicker.Normally the Oyster system that TfL uses just charges you for the maximum cost of a ride when this happens; but if you use Android Pay you ll now get a warning when you pass the machines to remind you if you forget.It s possibly a mark of how Google wanted to make sure it gets the experience right from the start, lest the public or regulators find any other reasons to scrutinize the company.
Eight studies have received funding under Phase 2 of the NASA innovative Advanced Concepts program, including a proposal to blast tiny spacecraft to other star systems using powerful lasers.The high-risk, high-reward ideas — which received grants under Phase 2 of the NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts NIAC program — include a possible way to induce a hibernation-like state in Mars-bound astronauts and a proposal to blast tiny spacecraft between the stars using powerful lasers."The NIAC program is one of the ways NASA engages the U.S. scientific and engineering communities, including agency civil servants, by challenging them to come up with some of the most visionary aerospace concepts," Steve Jurczyk, associate administrator of NASA's Space Technology Mission Directorate in Washington, D.C, said in a statement Friday May 13 .This basic idea is at the heart of the $100 million Breakthrough Starshot project, which Stephen Hawking and other scientists announced last month.In this concept, a spacecraft would slow down upon approach to a planet by generating its own magnetic field.- See more at: http://www.space.com/32894-nasa-interstellar-flight-tech-niac-space-grants.html sthash.r4Idujwq.dpuf"Phase 2 decisions are always challenging, but we were especially challenged this year with so many successful Phase 1 studies applying to move forward with their cutting-edge technologies," Jason Derleth, the NIAC program executive at NASA Headquarters in Washington, D.C., said in the same statement.
The next generation of air travel just got a step closer, with the successful completion of a rocket test in the Australian desert that could one day lead to flights from London to Sydney taking as little as two hours.The test is part of a series of ten, run by a team comprised of US and Australian military scientists.At the Woomera Testing Range, they were able to send an experimental scramjet attached to a rocket booster to an altitude of 278 kilometres with a top speed of Mach 7.5 - more than seven times the speed of sound.That's far faster than the 'supersonic' Concorde aircraft ever achieved, and passes the threshold for 'hypersonic travel' instead - defined as travel at more than five times the speed of sound."The practical application of that is you could fly long distances over the Earth very, very quickly but also that it's very useful as an alternative to a rocket for putting satellites into space.""It is a game-changing technology... and could revolutionise global air travel, providing cost-effective access to space," Australia's chief scientist Alex Zelinsky said in a statement.
Android Pay launches in the UK with support for MasterCard and Visa from at least eight banks and can be used anywhere contactless cards can.Not every Android smartphone supports NFC, however, but the contactless technology that also allows instant Bluetooth pairing with supported devices, is included on the majority of top and middle-tier Android smartphones sold in the UK.Photograph: GoogleVisa credit or debit cards and MasterCards from the Bank of Scotland, First Direct, Halifax, HSBC, Lloyds Bank, M Bank, MBNA and Nationwide Building Society will be supported from launch, with London s Underground network also supporting Android Pay for travel in the same way it does Apple Pay.Google will also have a bespoke offer system called Android Pay Day, operating on the last Tuesday of the month starting in June when retailers including Starbucks UK and Deliveroo will have special offers.Samsung Pay, which uses both NFC and magnetic stripe for payments, has yet to launch in the UK, but is expected soon.Over 84m contactless credit cards have been issued in the UK as of February 2016 and over £1.3bn was spent using contactless payments in the month with usage growing 36.5% year-on-year.
