How deaf researchers are reinventing science communication

How deaf researchers are reinventing science communication

Science is a language unto itself, and scientists rely on precise, standard terminology for common ground in their work.

The new supercomputer behind the US nuclear arsenal

The new supercomputer behind the US nuclear arsenal

“Sierra” was just crowned the second-most powerful supercomputer on the planet. And while most of its peers use their power for climate simulations, astrophysics, and other civilian work, Sierra is purpose-built for an entirely different mission: nuclear weapons.

We decoded NASA’s messages to aliens by hand

We decoded NASA’s messages to aliens by hand

In 1977, twin golden records were sent into space on the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft. Still sailing through space at nearly 60,000 km per hour, the records contain sound, songs, and images from earth. But how did NASA include images on an analog record? Here, we decoded the audio, and see the images the…
