Will Son Doong prove to be the worlds biggest cave? And what secrets are undiscovered inside this unique ecosystem?

When there is no driver, car interiors can go wild
It took a long time before car designers realized they didn't have to deal with a horse. That may sound funny, but the first “horseless carriages” looked just like, well, carriages. And it’s going to be just like that as we switch to self-driving cars. It’s a challenge that calls for out-of-the-box thinking.
A Pictorial History of Santa Claus
Contrary to what many believe, Santa Claus as we know him today – sleigh riding, gift-giving, rotund and white bearded with his distinctive red suit trimmed with white fur – was not the creation of the Coca Cola Company. Although their Christmas advertising campaigns of the 1930s and 40s were key to popularising the image...

BMW i3 review: A city car for the future
With the new i3 electric vehicle (EV) city car, BMW is making a pretty clear statement—the company is serious about designing and building cars properly adapted for the 21st century. It’s a radical departure from the Bavarian automaker’s mainstream offerings, looking like little else on the road. In fact, its looks alone are polarizing enough for some people to dismiss it instantly (looking at you, Senior Reviews Editor Lee Hutchinson). But keep an open mind about the i3's appearance, and you to...

The Joys and Complications of Buying an Architectural Masterpiece
The upper floors of the Woolworth Building, arguably Cass Gilbert’s most famous creation, are turning residential; the Puck’s top floors, too. Zaha Hadid is finally adding her brand to the New York skyline with a condo on the High Line. Cross the city limits, and you’ll find glassy moderns by the likes of Philip Johnson and Jules Gregory for the price of a West Village two-bedroom (or less). Which is all to say it’s never been easier (if you have the cash) to hang your hat in an architectural ma...
Viking women were most certainly not stay-at-home moms
The traditional picture of Vikings is one of boatloads of hairy men pillaging their way along the coasts of Europe. Though true to some degree, this stereotype has more recently been tempered with the appreciation of Vikings as explorers and settlers, founding colonies from the Black Sea to Canada. Left out of this picture are Viking women, but with the results of state-of-the-art DNA sequencing techniques, geneticists from Norway and Sweden have provided a picture of the Viking world that revea...
The Dominant Life Form in the Cosmos Is Probably Superintelligent Robots
If and when we finally encounter aliens, they probably won’t look like little green men, or spiny insectoids. It’s likely they won’t be biological creatures at all, but rather, advanced robots that outstrip our intelligence in every conceivable way. While scores of philosophers, scientists and futurists have prophesied the rise of artificial intelligence and the impending singularity, most have restricted their predictions to Earth. Fewer thinkers—outside the realm of science fiction, that is—ha...
Sony Hacking: President Obama Says Company Made 'Mistake' in Canceling 'The Interview'
President Obama says Sony Pictures Entertainment made a "mistake" in canceling its planned release of the movie "The Interview" following a destructive cyber attack the U.S. government says was launched by North Korea. "Sony is a corporation. It suffered significant damage. There were threats against its employees. I’m sympathetic to the concerns that they faced," Obama said. "Having said all that, yes I think they made a mistake." "We cannot have a society in which some dictator in some place c...

US: Sony Cyberattack is ‘Serious’ National Security Matter
U.S. officials are treating a cyberattack on Sony Pictures as a "serious national security matter," with the National Security Council considering a proportionate response, the White House said Thursday. Evidence shows the attack against Sony was carried out by a "sophisticated actor," White House spokesman Josh Earnest said. But he declined to blame North Korea, saying the investigation is still progressing.

Nobel Prize for the brain's GPS discovery
The Nobel Prize for physiology or medicine has been awarded to three scientists who discovered the brain's "GPS system". UK-based researcher Prof John O'Keefe as well as May-Britt Moser and Edvard Moser share the award. They discovered how the brain knows where we are and is able to navigate from one place to another. Their findings may help explain why Alzheimer's disease patients cannot recognise their surroundings.

The New Sound of Crowd Control
An LRAD is a long-range acoustic device, a powerful portable speaker designed to scare people away with sound, and it's becoming increasingly popular among police departments. It is often described by critics as a sound cannon, offering a user “the ability to issue clear, authoritative verbal commands, followed with powerful deterrent tones.”

These Dreamers Are Actually Making Progress Building Elon's Hyperloop
When Elon Musk unveiled his idea for the Hyperloop in August of 2013, no one seemed sure what the next step would be. The Tesla Motors and SpaceX CEO dropped a 57-page alpha white paper on us, noting he didn’t really have the time to build a revolutionary transit system that would shoot pods full of people around the country in above-ground tubes at 800 mph. Fortunately for futurists and people who enjoy picking apart complicated plans, an El Segundo, California-based startup has taken Musk up o...
NASA has emailed a wrench to astronauts in space
Responding to International Space Station (ISS) astronauts’ need for a wrench, NASA solved the problem by emailing a digital file to the ISS. The astronauts then 3D printed the tool. In a post on Backchannel, Mike Chen, founder of Made In Space explained how the process worked. Made in Space is a Silicon Valley startup that built the 3D printer that was shipped to the ISS in September. In November, the first-ever 3D-printed part was, yes, made in space.
Can You Balance on One Leg? You May Have Lower Stroke Risk
If you can't balance on one leg for at least 20 seconds you may be at risk of a stroke, Japanese researchers suggest. Difficulty standing on one leg may indicate that small strokes or tiny bleeds have already occurred, which means the risk for more serious strokes is high, the investigators reported online Dec. 18 in the journal Stroke.
