“How Dumb Are Drones?”

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/tech/how-dumb-are-drones.html

“For many, the word “drone” summons images of innocent civilians killed in wars conducted from thousands of miles away and raises concerns about invasions of privacy. For others, a drone is simply a next-generation military weapon that saves both lives and money. And for still others, drones are a fascinating backyard hobby for adults and children alike. But no matter what you think about them, drones are here to stay. The Air Force predicts that within a decade nearly 30 percent of its attack and fighter planes will be drones. It’s not just the military that sees their potential, either. Drones are being used for humanitarian purposes such as search and rescue missions, environmental conservation, and forest fire detection.”

They say you can’t see them or hear them.

They say they can’t be shot down.

But they have to take off and land from somewhere. Find that place.
