Our Amazing Future (Cont.)

There are even more amazing discoveries coming in the future, but whether they are good or bad remains to be seen. The US government is encouraging auto makers to develop driverless cars?and planes without pilots as well.

Tom Krisher reports that cars that drive?and even PARK?themselves could be available from US car manufacturers within the next 10 years. He quotes General Motors engineer Larry Burns as saying, "This is not science fiction," and researcher Sebastian Thrun as saying, "It will really change society, very much like the transition from a horse to a car."

Meanwhile, Lolita C. Baldor reports that pilotless "drone" planes have become a major weapon in the Iraq war, eliminating the need to recruit more military pilots. Will this technology eventually make it to the consumer airline industry?
