Nanotechnology brings together multiple science disciplines to create devices that mimic the refinements of nature. It’s difficult – and exhilarating.
Nanotechnology isn't science fiction – you can find it in the latest TV screens, solar cells and tennis rackets.
Elon Musk is an open admirer of the fictional Tony Stark, whose alter‑ego is none other than Iron Man. But Tesla’s recent financial results prove Musk to be more vulnerable than his hero…
Last week, Elon Musk 'called BS' on nanotechnology. And it threw up an important question: just what is nanotech, and is it more hype than science?
How Roko's Basilisk, a 'terrifying' thought experiment, went to the Met Gala.
Elon Musk 's Tesla has serious production problems.
Robots can't achieve high fives all round without human-like hands, tactile perception, manipulation control, seamless interaction and human reason, experts say.
With any type of human exploration, there are risks as we push boundaries, and there are inevitably mishaps and fatalities as a result. Space tourism is no exception.
Elon Musk is a master of keeping investors believing in the dream of Tesla, but analysis of the company’s output and financials reveal a darker picture.
From damaging the environment to contaminating the solar system, SpaceX's successful launch of the Falcon Heavy rocket also poses risks.
The launch of Elon Musk's Falcon Heavy rocket is undoubtedly a spectacular feat of engineering - but the release of a sports car into orbit also says something about our values as human beings.
SpaceX's Falcon Heavy could propel two fully loaded city buses more than 50 times the height of Mount Everest at 32 times the cruising speed of a Boeing 747.
