Earth’s atmosphere can be turned into massive surveillance system using LASERS, scientists discover
“BAE Systems are designing a directed energy laser system that could allow military commanders to spy on enemy activities from space. BAE believe that within 50 years, one of their aircraft could use an “atmospheric lens” to observe people from very long distances using the Earth’s atmosphere as a tool. The lasers temporarily change the Earth’s atmosphere into magnifying glass structures which can alter light and radio signals. This means users can listen into radio signals for thousands of miles.”
The powers-that-be just keep coming up with new ways to spy on us, don’t they. Don’t worry about your privacy: you have none. Modern technology just makes it way too easy to keep track of what you’re doing. But if you’re not doing anything wrong you should have nothing to hide, right? Ok, maybe there’s something that you do that while not illegal would embarrass you if it became known. Well my advice then is either stop doing it or stop being embarrassed about it. Then nobody will have a hold over you.

“Airbus Group plans to test a prototype for a self-piloted flying car as a way of avoiding gridlock on city roads by the end of the year, the aerospace group's chief executive said on Monday. Airbus last year formed a division called Urban Air Mobility that is exploring concepts such as a vehicle to transport individuals or a helicopter-style vehicle that can carry multiple riders. The aim would be for people to book the vehicle using an app, similar to car-sharing schemes.”
