Welcome to my weekly letter, where I share a few noteworthy articles and my own commentary. Without further ado…
- Are Green Jet Fuels Finally Ready for Takeoff? (Wired) – Yes they are, and the extra cost is totally worth it for the environment (plus common sense says any new technologies will have higher initial costs to offset the high development expenses)
- This Groundbreaking Simulator Generates a Huge Indoor Ocean (Wired) – very cool… When can we expect the next “The Truman Show: – Waterworld Edition” movie filmed here?
- Some fast-food items contain plastics linked to serious health problems, a new report shows (Washington Post) – if what you ordered at the local fast-food restaurant tastes like plastic, maybe it’s not your taste buds tricking you.
- Egypt detains artist robot Ai-Da before historic pyramid show (The Guardian) – an AI driven robotic artist, deprived of her freedom, parts of her body forced to be stripped off, and later, stricken by the hardship of re-establishing herself, all for her art and her passion… yes. Let’s all go out and buy her NFTs 😉
- A Cosmic Ray Event Pinpoints the Viking Landing in Canada (Wired) – this is super interesting to me as I’ve been playing a game where the story was inspired by Norse mythology… but also a nice intersection with the technology of using radiocarbon (Carbon-14) dating for trees.
That’s it for this week! Have a nice weekend!
It’s super easy to follow my updates:
