Working from a beachside shack on California's Monterey Bay , Nate Lindsey fired a stream of infrared laser pulses down a long fiber-optic cable extending onto the ocean floor.
A great way to anger the gods is to call your ship unsinkable.Using an absurdly powerful laser, the researchers etched fine patterns into the metal, which trap air.
“Suddenly stopping solar geoengineering could cause the climate to change very rapidly, allowing ecosystems and economies less time to adapt to new conditions,” says Proctor.
A new report from threat detection firm RiskIQ details how Magecart hackers have found a way to scan Amazon S3 buckets—cloud repositories that hold data and and other backend necessities for sites and companies—for any that are misconfigured to allow anyone with an Amazon Web Services account to not just read their contents, but write to them, implementing whatever changes they want.

In the latest episode of WIRED's Technique Critique series, dialect coach Erik Singer analyzed a series of actors portraying US presidents and zeroed in on three comedians—Jimmy Fallon, Taran Killam, and Darrell Hammond— who have taken on Trump.
They showed it’s possible to use a simple trigger to coax the same basic set of DNA molecules into implementing numerous different algorithms. As these DNA tiles link up during the assembly process, they form a circuit that implements the chosen molecular algorithm on the input bits provided by the seed.
UK weather warning: World to experience EXTREME heat for next FOUR YEARS SCORCHING heatwaves like the one we have just experienced will be with us annually for the next four years at least, scientists have warned.
Maybe it’s a good idea for the international community, and specifically the World Bank, to look into this as part of our work on solid waste management to see if we can help countries manage their waste and its consequences while contributing to their infrastructure development.
