Autonomous X-47B drone successfully lands on Navy aircraft carrier for the first time
Score one more for our robot overlords: the US Navy’s next-generation autonomous drone, the X-47B, successfully landed on the deck of the USS George H.W. Bush today during a milestone test run off the coast of Virginia. Following another historic test which took place in May, the feat makes the drone the first unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) to both take off and land on an aircraft carrier, opening up frightening new horizons for the world’s most powerful military.
