This is the Lockheed Martin Fortis, which works by transferring loads through the device to the ground in a standing or kneeling position thereby allowing the wearer to lift heavy tools as if they were weightless. The design uses a Equipois zeroG® arm that can manage objects up to 36 lbs (16 kg) and the entire exoskeleton moves with the body and can adapt to the person wearing it, which will increase productivity and reduce muscle fatigue over the long term.
This rare photo of Earth was taken from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft that is currently orbiting Saturn. Earth appears as a small blue dot as it is taken from the outer solar system and is only visible when the camera is pointed towards the sun. This particular photo occurred during a total eclipse where the sun was blanked out by Saturn but provided enough light to keep Earth in view.
