    Flight of the Aerospike: Episode 1

    Hi, I’m Liz from ARCA Space Corporation, and today we’re introducing a new weekly series about what it takes to fly an aerospike. The aerospike is a type of rocket engine that maintains its efficiency from ground level all the way to space. This makes it ideal for rockets that need to reach space in only one stage. The aerospike is one of the defining features of ARCA’s Haas 2CA rocket. In our case, a linear aerospike. Other variants of this rocket engine have been extensively tested by NASA and Rocketdyne over the last 50 years. But an actual space flight with this type of rocket engine has never been…

    How your immortal consciousness will travel the universe | Michio Kaku

    We physicists are now looking into the brain itself. And we can see blood flow. And we can even see thoughts, thoughts as they’re being created. And we can now show that certain old wives’ tales are correct. Every parent, for example, believes that their teenage children suffer from brain damage. It’s partially true. Scanning the prefrontal cortex of teenagers, you find that it’s not fully formed. And that’s why they take risks, because they don’t understand how dangerous certain things are. Another old wives’ tale is, when a man talks to a pretty girl, he starts to act stupid. Absolutely true. We have brain scanned men talking to pretty…

    A Theory of Flight | Better Worlds

    From the ladies in the beauty shop to the guys holding down the sidewalk in front of the Quik Mart, Carlinda’s name was on everyone’s lips. Story was, she got fired from her job designing rockets for rich folks. Now she was back in the neighborhood… plotting her revenge. Carlinda and her team are building an open-source rocket to go to Europa. Everyone wants to go there. There are domes there filled with plants, most of them extinct on Earth. There are no days hot enough to kill you, and the air is always safe to breathe. There’s no way I could afford to go there on my own. Only…

    We need to track the world’s water like we track the weather | Sonaar Luthra

    We need to build a weather service for water. Yet, until we collectively demand accountability, the incentives to fund it will not exist. The first time I spoke at a conference was here at TED, eight years ago. Fresh out of grad school, little did I know that in those few minutes onstage, I was framing the questions I was going to be asked for the next decade. And, like too many 20-somethings, I expected to solve the world’s problems — more specifically, the world’s water problems — with my technology. I had a lot to learn. It was seductive, believing that our biggest water quality problems persist because they’re…

    5 Fastest Methods of Space Travel

    Space; I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but it’s pretty big. So, when you’re choosing how to get somewhere, your choice of transport is rather important. For example, if you wanted to drive the 400,000 km to the moon, it would take you about six months, so long as space traffic was okay. In August, they announced the discovery of a new planet orbiting our nearest neighbouring star, Proxima Centuari, that has the possibility of being habitable. The big question is; can we realistically get there and when we do will it be made of cheese? Because as tasty as that would be, it’s not very practical. Proxima Centuari is…
