'60 Words' that changed the world

 

Radiolab's superb look at how 60 words written in the days after Sept. 11, 2001 have “blurred the line between war and peace.” If you've never listened to Radiolab make this episode your first.

“When I first got this role I just cried like a baby because I was like, “Wow, next Halloween, I’m gonna open the door and there’s gonna be a little kid dressed as the Falcon.” That’s the thing that always gets me. I feel like everybody deserves that. I feel like there should be a Latino superhero. Scarlett does great representation for all the other girls, but there should be a Wonder Woman movie. I don’t care if they make 20 bucks, if there’s a movie you’re gonna lose money on, make it Wonder Woman. You know what I mean, ’cause little girls deserve that.”

The stunning salvaging of the Costa Concordia
Admirers of mind-boggling engineering feats take note: Above is just a peek at the extensive effort undertaken to raise the wrecked Costa Concordia from the Italian coast.
Our own Tom Kington has the story on the salvage effort, but for now, we’re just going to look at those crazy photos.

Elon Musk is constantly traveling between San Francisco and Los Angeles to attend to his business at Tesla and Space X. So he said to himself, “there has to be a better way.”

Turns out there is.

Load yourself into an enormous shotgun shell and shoot yourself 400 miles across the state at 800 mph. It sounds crazy, but Musk swears it will work. And if he doesn’t build it, someone else will.

Musk’s proposal to revolutionize mass transit is called the Hyperloop. It would transport passengers in individual aluminum pods powered by turbines and solar energy in above-ground tubes, cost $6-10 billion to build, and make the trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles in 35 minutes. Oh, and a ticket will run you around $20.

But it only exists in a 57-page alpha white paper. And if someone grabbed the idea and ran with it today, Musk says it would still be 7 to 10 years away.
