Episode 45 - The Future Of Flight

This week we examine some of the ways we may be flying through the air in the near future, including drones, hypersonic jets, and (not in the air) the hyperloop.

Also, a brick laying robot, and New Horizons takes a nap, and what I'll be doing at next week's March for Science.

Episode 43 - Pollution Solutions

This week we go over a few of the ways people are tackling air pollution and excess carbon. Making ink from soot, making diamonds from CO2, and more.

Also, mammal cells turned into computer circuits, and NASA's Cassini probe final mission.
