China’s ingenious ‘death zone’ spy drones near invisible to radar

Post Pic
China is testing a tiny bat-sized spy drone the country hopes will help it dominate a region of the atmosphere known as the ‘death zone’. Also known as ‘near space,’ the area begins roughly 20km (12 miles) above sea-level and is regarded as a death zone for drones as the thin air makes it hard for them to generate lift. Simultaneously, the extremely low temperatures of the zone means that... 

Drivers are distracted by cutting-edge technology crammed into modern cars
