If you wonder whether or not drone deliveries will ever come to your neighborhood, you can stop dreaming. Alphabet, a Google’s subsidiary, just performed their first real drone delivery in Christianburg, VA. The 14-propellered drone known as ‘Wing’ delivered goods from FedEx and Walgreens that included medication, gifts, and snacks by remaining in hover mode and lowering the package via cable. Wing drones have the capability to travel within about a 6-mile radius with packages weighing up to just under 3 pounds. Alphabet wants to make it the norm in America and cut down on the number of delivery trucks hauling ass to make quota. Right now, they’re doing deliveries only in Christianburg and can deploy within minutes of order placement. Look for Wing drone deliveries to expand if all goes well.

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
