Gliders Launch with 454 Cubic Inches of Pull

Gliders—sailplanes—are engineless flying machines powered by gravity’s conversion of altitude into airspeed. Without a doubt, they are aviation’s purest expression of flying for fun. It is also the most social aeronautical neighborhood, because glider pilots alone cannot pull their craft aloft for a flight’s initial investment of altitude. I discovered Sky Soaring Glider Club last year, when its Cessna 150 tow plane, with its more robust powerplant, swooped low on its touchdown pass to the club...

Here's every spacesuit NASA astronauts have worn since the 1960s — and new models that may soon arrive

NASA gave astronauts their first operational spacesuits in the early 1960s. Since then, the designs have evolved considerably. Recently, astronaut Anne McClain encountered an issue with a suit that was introduced in 1983, leading NASA to cancel what would have been the first all-female spacewalk. New spacesuits are in development for exploring the moon, Mars, and beyond. Space may be the final frontier, but it's wildly inaccessible and downright deadly to any plucky human without a great spac...

IBM and Clinton Global Initiative collaborate to help impact lives through technology

By Dr. Angel Diaz, IBM Vice President of Developer Technology, Open Source, and Advocacy When Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico on September 20, 2017, I watched intently as the storm devastated my homeland and the place where my parents still live.

Death toll hits 25 from California fires as search goes on

By GILLIAN FLACCUS, PAUL ELIAS and ANDREW SELSKY PARADISE, Calif. — With hearses standing by, crews stepped up the search for bodies in the smoking ruins of Paradise, and relatives desperately tried to find more than 100 missing loved ones, as wind-whipped wildfires raged Sunday on both ends of the state. The statewide death toll stood at 25 and appeared certain to rise. At least five search teams were working in Paradise — a town of 27,000 that was largely incinerated on Thursday — and surround...
