Our Drone Future

This three-minute video from designer Alex Cornell imagines a future San Francisco in which an autonomous (seemingly police or military) drone is set free to patrol the skies of the city by the bay, in order to keep its citizens “safe.” We won’t give away the ending, but it’s safe to say that the video reflects the tenor of the debate over whether or not more-evolved versions of the drones that America currently flies over war zones will ever be allowed to patrol domestic skies. It also comes as more individuals, including presumably the filmmakers, are pushing the limits of federal aviation regulations as they fly drones such as the DJI Phantom around US cities.

Paying Amy

Countless numbers of people have seen the pictures of 8-year-old “Amy,” as she is called in court documents, being sexually abused by her uncle. She is a victim of child pornography in a terrible, viral way. Since her uncle took the pictures in the late 1990s and sent them to a man he met through an AOL bulletin board, they have surfaced on the computers of child pornography collectors all over the world, factoring into 3,200 criminal cases in the United States alone.

Every Black Hole Contains a New Universe

Our universe may exist inside a black hole. This may sound strange, but it could actually be the best explanation of how the universe began, and what we observe today. It's a theory that has been explored over the past few decades by a small group of physicists including myself.

Simulations back up theory that Universe is a hologram

A team of physicists has provided some of the clearest evidence yet that our Universe could be just one big projection. At a black hole, Albert Einstein's theory of gravity apparently clashes with quantum physics, but that conflict could be solved if the Universe were a holographic projection.

Trigger Effect

On a clear blue day on Jan. 17, 1989, a man whose peripatetic life included years as a troubled Sacramento youth walked onto a playground in Stockton and shot 35 children, killing five. In the span of only a few minutes, the act marked the first mass shooting of schoolchildren in American history. Today, 25 years later—and one year after the massacre at Newtown—these once-unthinkable tragedies have become terrifyingly familiar as citizens and political leaders from Sacramento to Washington choose sides in the fight over the future of guns in America.
