Uber exec warned of rampant safety problems days before fatal crash

On March 19, the world learned that Uber had a serious safety problem when a prototype self-driving car struck and killed pedestrian Elaine Herzberg in Tempe, Ariz. But signs of Uber's safety problems were evident to company insiders even before the crash. And at least one Uber executive tried to raise the alarm on March 13—just days before Herzberg's death.

Robbie Miller worked for Google's self-driving car program until 2016, when he left for the self-driving truck startup Otto. Otto was snapped up by Uber later that year, and Miller became an operations manager in Uber's self-driving truck program.

Miller quit his job at Uber in March 2018 and went on to lidar startup Luminar. Before he left the company he sent an email to Eric Meyhofer, the leader of Uber's self-driving car project, about safety problems at the company. The email, which was obtained by The Information's Amir Efrati, is absolutely scathing.

Technical tour-de-force traps positrons

We don’t often play with them, but plasmas are a central part of modern life. The plasmas that we can create on Earth, however, are unlike some of the plasmas that are thought to exist in space—the ones in space appear to include antimatter. Those plasmas are hard to observe, and as a result, we don’t think we understand them very well.

That makes a pair of recent publications on the trapping of positrons—the positively charged cousin to the electron—very interesting. While they don't get as far as exploring plasmas with antimatter, they do show that we can trap the antimatter long enough to make some.

Plasma: A fluid that is not a fluid

Before we get to the good stuff, we need to trudge through some well-explored fields. A plasma is basically a gas, but the gas consists of ions—atoms that have had one or more electrons removed—and free electrons.
