Bloomberg News reports that Uber and NASA have signed an agreement “on how to safely manage” a “network of flying cars.” Uber “has said it plans to roll out an on-demand vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) network in Dallas and Dubai by 2020, and Wednesday added Los Angeles to the list,” but “many regulatory hurdles” will need to be addressed before Uber is able to launch its flying taxi service, including receiving approval from the FAA. Uber Chief Product Officer Jeff Holden said, “This collaboration makes a ton of sense in order to bring this to market as fast as possible.”  (Image Credit: Aurora Flight Sciences/YouTube)
