"Strange and Stringy": String theory is helping to make sense of newly discovered states of matter that have previously defied explanation.

"Bionic Connections": A new way to link artificial arms and hands to the nervous system could allow the brain to control prostheses as smoothly as if they were natural limbs.

"The Coming of Megafloods": Huge flows of vapor in the atmosphere have unleashed massive floods every 200 years, and climate change could bring more of them.
