The Pulse: Leap of Space

On July 29th, 1958, President Eisenhower signed the National Aeronautics and Space Act and soon we sent men where only our imaginations had taken us. The Pulse celebrates major advancements in space travel and considers the challenges that have — so far — kept us from building a community on Mars. We visit a lab hoping to produce the power source that will fuel tomorrow’s space missions. An analysis of the movie “2001: A Space Odyssey” suggests how the filmmakers got the future so wrong.

Climate One Radio's National Magazine:
Does Greening the Economy Leave Some People Behind?

Cities are leading the way in the greening of America’s economy. From urban parks and farms to microgrids and living buildings, dynamic urban planning can adapt to changing coastlines and severe weather delivered by a volatile climate.
