asteroid defense

Here’s how MIT wants to save Earth from killer asteroids

February 20th, 2020

If science fiction movies have taught us anything, it’s that saving Earth from a killer asteroid is going to take some big drills and probably nuclear weapons. Thankfully, if a particularly large space rock ever were to threaten Earth, our plan of attack would probably be a bit more level-headed. That is, as long as …

Before they inevitably revolt, watch a bunch of tiny robots play soccer

November 8th, 2019

If you’ve ever wondered what the robot apocalypse would look like, look no further than what unfolded on the lawn outside of MIT’s Building 10 this week.

December 17th, 2018

In science fiction, “shrink rays” are the easiest way to turn a large object into something much, much smaller, but here in reality things aren’t that simple. Creating so-called “nano-scale” versions of objects is a difficult task that researchers at MIT aimed to make a bit easier, and the result is a new system that …

mit plane

MIT’s magic plane flies without fuel or moving parts

November 22nd, 2018

Air travel is the safest, speediest way to get from one place to another, but you know what would make it even better? If planes didn’t have to worry about pesky engines and messy fuel. I mean, if a plane could just go we’d all be better off, right? Well leave it to MIT to come …
