The new supercomputer behind the US nuclear arsenal

The new supercomputer behind the US nuclear arsenal

“Sierra” was just crowned the second-most powerful supercomputer on the planet. And while most of its peers use their power for climate simulations, astrophysics, and other civilian work, Sierra is purpose-built for an entirely different mission: nuclear weapons. We took a tour of this massive system, and found out why the US builds supercomputers to…

Supersonic air travel is finally coming back

Supersonic air travel is finally coming back

Supersonic air travel is back. 15 years after the Concorde was grounded, everyone from aerospace companies to NASA to small startups is working to bring back ultrafast civilian aircraft. We take a look at the engineering challenges that make supersonic flight so difficult, and try to figure out what’s different about this new generation of…

We decoded NASA’s messages to aliens by hand

We decoded NASA’s messages to aliens by hand

In 1977, twin golden records were sent into space on the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft. Still sailing through space at nearly 60,000 km per hour, the records contain sound, songs, and images from earth. But how did NASA include images on an analog record? Here, we decoded the audio, and see the images the…

Should your phone push you to take your pills?

Should your phone push you to take your pills?

There’s a surprising problem in American health care that doesn’t get discussed much: up to 50% of patients don’t take long-term medication properly. “Medicine non adherence” costs money and lives every year, and recently, technology is swooping in to help. More smartphone apps are hitting the market that monitor patients as they take their medicine…but…

How four rogue satellites could change the spaceflight industry

How four rogue satellites could change the spaceflight industry

Earlier this year, a company launched four tiny satellites into orbit without permission. These “rogue satellites” caused an uproar in the space community, and in the future, others like them could increase the risk of catastrophic collisions in orbit. We talked to some space experts about what’s at stake when no one knows exactly what’s…
