The size of that chip on his shoulder is cosmic. What a bunch of drunken ramblings. This clown is the epitome of incompetence. As if he did anyone a favour with his Soyuz ferry service. Without its fat returns, Roscosmos would be a trampoline playground by now. Instead of investing that money in innovation, I'm sure it all went into dachas, women, and cars.

Russia drags NASA: Enjoy your expensive SpaceX capsule, our Soyuz is the cheap Kalashnikov of rockets

Re: Call it what it is
Indeed. We need to make a distinction between AI (even narrow AI) and neural networking. The latter is very good at guessing, but just because it uses a mechanism that is similar to that of a brain, it is not exhibiting any kind of intelligence. You need at least another two layers for that.
Just the place you'd want to spot a BSOD: While waiting in line for a roller coaster that lifts you up 124ft
"Why would they mention Airbus?"
To inform people like you. Thales, which is a French group, delivered part of the rover's tech to AIRBUS, which is a European company (mostly non-UK) and built the rover (assembled in UK). Some of the involved sites happen to be in the UK. Calling it a "Brit" bot is acceptable (although slightly wishful thinking), but NOT mentioning Europe (with the exception of ESA) is specious.
The Moon certainly wasn't low-hanging fruit 50 years ago. It is today.
The Voyager missions were/are awesome. Sad you find them worthless.
What took what whom so long? Cassini-Huygens, a NASA/ESA collaboration, didn't get launched until 1997.
And what giants are you talking about? Wernher von Braun? NASA? Are you talking about the US? I am talking about the UK vs ESA.
Be precise, anonymous coward.
"Has the EU done much space travel?"
Hell yes! The EU neatly planted its flag on Titan. That's a moon of SATURN, not the low-hanging fruit that the Earth's moon is. It also has its flag sitting on a comet. Try and hit that softly as a target.
ESA, unlike the other agencies, is not into propaganda. It's into hard science. Also, you can't beat the European launcher Ariane in reliability.
Re: UK needs the EU
Politicians in the EU parliament can be voted out just as easily. And commission members are chosen by ELECTED nationals. Why keep perpetuating this fallacy that they're unelected? Sounds like scaremongering tabloid crap. Why not complete the farce and use the word "sovereignty" in there somewhere?
Endearing how Russia continues its important nation posture
Every time something gets the press' attention for a while, Russia gets all dressed up to express its opinion. As if it has any kind of authority beyond the mediocre fabricated image it tries to project.
It's Zimbabwe with a stockpile of weapons, a caption that should accompany all articles about Russia's opinion.
Re: A bit too much threatening nationalism there...
He could have mentioned what his market was like and not mention a "strong motherland." People who do that betray strong nationalistic feelings, and I can't feel pity with CEOs brandishing jingoism in an argument. Especially if you have customers outside of that little superior utopia.
A bit too much threatening nationalism there...
The ZTE CEO also said (not mentioned in this article) "We have a strong motherland and 1.3 billion people behind us, and they provide us with the confidence and determination to overcome all kinds of difficulties."
What's that threat with strength-in-numbers all about? Greater numbers equals greater righteousness? Big red flag there.
