  1. Flight of the Bumblebee - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    "Flight of the Bumblebee" is an orchestral interlude written by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov for his opera The Tale of Tsar Saltan, composed in 1899–1900.


    Here is the text of the scene where the Swan-Bird sings during this music:

    RussianEnglish translation
    (Гвидон спускается с берега в море. Из моря вылетает шмель, кружась около Лебедь-Птицы.)
    Ну, теперь, мой шмель, гуляй,
    судно в море догоняй,
    потихоньку опускайся,
    в щель подальше забивайся.
    Будь здоров, Гвидон, лети,
    только долго не гости!
    (Шмель улетает.)
    (Gvidon goes down from the shore into the sea. Out from the sea flies a bumblebee, whirling around the Swan-Bird.)
    Well, now, my bumblebee, go on a spree,
    catch up with the ship on the sea,
    go down secretly,
    get deep into a crack.
    Good luck, Gvidon, fly,
    only do not stay long!
    (The bumblebee flies away.)

    The following year [2008 - M.N.], the US Air Force unveiled insect-sized spies 'as tiny as bumblebees' that could not be detected and would be able to fly into buildings to 'photograph, record, and even attack insurgents and terrorists.'
    Around the same time the Air Force also unveiled what it called 'lethal mini-drones' based on Leonardo da Vinci's blueprints for his Ornithopter flying machine, and claimed they would be ready for roll out by 2015.
    That announcement was five years ago and, since the U.S. military is usually pretty cagey about its technological capabilities, it raises the question as to what it is keeping under wraps.
    Scientists have taken their inspiration from animals which have evolved over millennia to the perfect conditions for flight.
    Nano-biomimicry MAV design has long been studied by DARPA, and in 2008 the U.S. government's military research agency conducted a symposium discussing 'bugs, bots, borgs and bio-weapons.'
    Researchers have now developed bio-inspired drones with bug eyes, bat ears, bird wings, and even honeybee-like hairs to sense biological, chemical and nuclear weapons.
    And the U.S. isn't the only country to have poured money into spy drone miniaturisation. France has developed flapping wing bio-inspired microdrones.
    The Netherlands BioMAV (Biologically Inspired A.I. for Micro Aerial Vehicles) developed a Parrot AR Drone last year - which is now available in the U.S. as a 'flying video game'.
    'With insects you get a combination of both these assets in miniature. And when you consider we have been flying for just over a hundred years as opposed to 350 million years, I would say it is they who have got it right, and not us!'

    "Such a device could be controlled from a great distance and is equipped with a camera, microphone. It could land on you and then use its needle to take a DNA sample with the pain of a mosquito bite. Or it could inject a micro RFID tracking device under your skin." While DNA-sucking, RFID-chip-injecting mosquito drones are currently a bunch of bunk, a Bing image search shows a multitude of MAVs that aren't simply CGI mockups.

     The Air Force Office of Scientific Research and the National Science Foundation funded the insect flight dynamics research, so John Hopkins reseachers have turned to studying even smaller MAV bugs like fruit flies.

Feb. 19, 2013 - Looks like we have the makings of a new arms race at hand. The winner will develop the tiniest lethal drone capable of blending into a crowded cityscape. The Atlantic's Conor Friedersdorf points to a National Geographic piece on the future of drone technology, including one fascinating passage on how the U.S. Air Force is developing "micro-drones" the size of tiny creatures, capable of flying through major cities unnoticed.

The science writer, John Horgan, described what information he was able to access from the government: The Air Force has nonetheless already constructed a "micro-aviary" at Wright-Patterson for flight-testing small drones. It's a cavernous chamber—35 feet high and covering almost 4,000 square feet—with padded walls. Micro-aviary researchers, much of whose work is classified, decline to let me witness a flight test. But they do show me an animated video starring micro-UAVs that resemble winged, multi-legged bugs. The drones swarm through alleys, crawl across windowsills, and perch on power lines. One of them sneaks up on a scowling man holding a gun and shoots him in the head.

The Air Force describes these new "micro-air" weapons as "Unobtrusive, pervasive, lethal."


I share Friedersdorf's sentiment that this video is "horrifying" — namely because it signals that drone warfare is the next arms race.

According to Horgan, however, the U.S. government "takes seriously" the potential for widespread proliferation of "micro-drone" technology among terrorists and governments: What, one might ask, will prevent terrorists and criminals from getting their hands on some kind of lethal drone? Although American officials rarely discuss the threat in public, they take it seriously. [...] Exercises carried out by security agencies suggest that defending against small drones would be difficult. Under a program called Black Dart, a mini-drone two feet long tested defenses at a military range. A video from its onboard camera shows a puff of smoke in the distance, from which emerges a tiny dot that rapidly grows larger before whizzing harmlessly past: That was a surface-to-air missile missing its mark. In a second video an F-16 fighter plane races past the drone without spotting it. The answer to the threat of drone attacks, some engineers say, is more drones.

Oh, joy!

In other words: another arms race to find the smallest possible drone that can not only attack the enemy but defend against similarly undetectable micro-drones. Rather than discourage this race to the bottom, we are actively leading the charge.

Moreover, the development of these fascinatingly small weapons provides yet another secretive weapon for the military to use without any sort of oversight.

Yes, in a world with micro-drones, casualties of American drone strikes will likely decrease, given that we'd be directly killing targets rather than obliterating them and everything around them with a missile from the sky. But the possibility for such precisely targeted surveillance and assassination, at the hands of a virtually-untraceable little "bug," gives our government one more tool to easily evade supervision and accountability.
