    Drones: is the sky the limit?

    What new risks will drones pose to privacy and personal safety? Drones: Is The Sky The Limit? is a high-flying examination of the past, present, and future of remotely controlled pilotless aircraft. With applications for home use, entertainment, homeland defense, and more, will people continue to make the critical decisions? Or will computers take over the controls?

About

Developed by subject experts from the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, Drones: Is The Sky The Limit? explores the modern phenomenon of drones, their uses throughout history, and the exciting possibilities of the future role that drones will play in our society.

Over the last 75 years, drones have evolved from remote-controlled planes used for target practice into versatile and highly specialized aircraft. As these aircraft fill the skies, they raise concerns about airspace, privacy, and ethics in modern warfare. But these concerns are eclipsed by excitement for their potential: someday drones will explore Mars, serve as pilotless flying taxis, and deliver packages and groceries to our front doors.

Drones: Is The Sky The Limit? features real drones, drone related-artifacts, in-depth label paneling, and rich audio-visual content, and provides a birds-eye view of the aeronautics, engineering, science, technologies, and innovations of one of the most intriguing topics dominating our current culture.
