Happy Saturday y'all! Below, I have rounded up some things for you to think about this weekend:

1. A seemingly unlikely partnership between Uber and NASA was announced this week along with the news that Uber plans to add flying taxis to its line of service offerings by 2020. There are also some concept videos that show how these taxis may work that are worth taking a look at. The vehicles actually look just like helicopters, but imagine being able to call a helicopter to come pick you—and up to three of your friends—up and fly to your destination. All from your phone.

That's all for this week's edition of Weekend Thoughts. Until next week, keep thinking wilder.
