Game Changing Science
September 11, 2015
Imagine hyper-sonic travel, an asteroid defence system, extreme weather mitigation or a dive into the realm of dark matter. What science fiction does for our imagination, science is developing into potential true breakthroughs.
Researchers at Lockheed Martin in Palo Alto, California, along with NASA and several universities including Imperial College London, have made breakthroughs in all of these realms.
In a matter of decades we could be travelling from England to Australia in less than 90 minutes. We may be able to predict destructive weather in order to prepare for and prevent the high material and human cost of these events. Though none of this matters if the earth is struck by an extinction-size asteroid. Now a NASA mission to collect samples from the asteroids most likely to collide with earth might allow us to thwart their impact. Read the full Telegraph article here.
All these astounding possibilities are borne out of incremental changes in the way we understand our world.
