“Sun In A Box” Could Help Renewables Deliver Energy On Demand

Widespread use of renewable energy is crucial to the carbon-free future we must achieve to curb climate change. Over the last four decades, it has become much cheaper but there are still small issues stopping it from becoming the exclusive source of power in our lives. A thorny one is its reliability. The tech is amazing but it depends on the Sun and the wind, so researchers are focusing on ways to store the energy produced and deliver it to …

Listen to the soothing sounds of Martian wind collected by NASAs InSight lander

The InSight Mars lander accomplished a perfect landing last week on the Elysium Planitia region of the planet, where it is hard at work preparing to drill into the surface (and taking selfies, of course). But one “unplanned treat” is a recording of the wind rolling across the Martian plains — which you can listen to right here.

The nation-state of the internet

The internet is a community, but can it be a nation-state? It’s a question that I have been pondering on and off this year, what with the rise of digital nomads and the deeply libertarian ethos baked into parts of the blockchain community. It’s clearly on a lot of other people’s minds as well: when we interviewed Matt Howard of Norwest on Equity a few weeks back, he noted (unprompted) that Uber is one of the few companies that could …

Hole dug at Stonehenge site a ‘travesty’

He said engineers did not consult him before carrying out the work. But Highways England also said no archaeological damage had been caused and its engineers “adhered to guidelines”. The proposed tunnel is part of a £1.6bn programme to upgrade the A303, which links the M3 from London to the M5 in the south west. The government wants to build the 1.9-mile (3km) tunnel past Stonehenge to hide the busy A303, but campaigners claim it could destroy archaeological treasures. Image …

Kathy Griffin Faced ‘Conspiracy To Assassinate’ President Charge Over Trump Snap

On Friday’s broadcast of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” the comedian opened up about the backlash she received (including a tweet from Trump himself) that she said “changed my life irrevocably.” Griffin, who was fired as co-host of CNN’s New Year’s Eve programming following the stunt, said she was also added to an Interpol list, which meant she was “detained at every single airport” she visited during her subsequent 18-country tour. Griffin said she would likely not “do that particular …
