In this episode:
(1). Coasts at risk. We bring attention back to the effect of rising seas on the communities that now live along the coasts. New evidence and estimates tell us that much more serious programmatic efforts are needed.
(2). The return of the airship. While the world spends and focuses on projects to go faster, a British company is working on an all-electric blimp that looks like a flying five-star hotel, and of course is proceeding at a placid pace.
(3). Moon-buggy. If you have in mind the human-guided rovers of the Apollo missions of the 1970s, new lunar dune buggies are on their way to support the Artemis mission, promising increased performance.
(4). Age limits. While one strand of research tells us of a future in which age can be extended substantially, a new study sets this limit below 150 years. We understand how the "resilience" of a human body is measured and why it is not infinite.
(5). Very Digital Fingerprints. British police arrest a known drug trafficker from a close-up photo of his hand showing a cheese he has a sweet tooth. Recovering fingerprints from an image is not a new thing, but it is a frontier that is still underestimated, for better or worse.
