FROM OUR LATEST ISSUE, JUNE 2015

• America’s Next Spyplane — The SR-72 will travel at six times the speed of sound (twice the speed of its predecessor). Traveling at such extremes means it will need weapons designed specifically for the task.

• Long Live the Mammoth — De-extinction might not happen exactly the way it does in Jurassic Park, but using a starkly similar process, bringing the mammoth—or at least mammothlike creatures—back could very well be possible.

• The New Faces of Energy — Entrepreneurs and startups are working to change the way we use and produce energy with molten salt reactors, tiny turbines, and a method for turning plastic into fuel—to name a few.

• The Cure-All — Stem cells are being marketed as a cure to chronic pain. But is the unregulated, unproven treatment too good to be true? Our writer goes under the knife to find out.

• Now — A smart grill that talks back, sensors to sniff out what’s in the air, the weird world of mobile payments, and more!

• Next — The safety of self-driving cars, the ups and downs of everyone’s favorite drug, a robot built for disasters, and more!

• Manual — How to build a DIY particle detector, a real-life tricorder inspired by science fiction, absurd machines that do silly tasks, and more!
