Episode 42 - CRISPR and gene editing

This week we dive into the world of CRISPR-Cas9 and gene editing with a hopefully easy to understand overview of the basics. What is CRISPR, what can and might it do, what are the concerns and roadblocks.

Also, new nano metal techniques for improving hardness, and the Air Force X37 sets a record.
