Since made publicly accessible in 2000, GPS has transformed our lives in some surprising ways (and may lead to electrocuting old people who wander too far away). Find out how 33 satellites work together to make sure we’re always being followed. Also: a “TimeCop” mea culpa, “Pastor Mark” marries the Amish, National Parks are free, Waiting For Guffman, Inky the Octopus, inflatable space pods, trying to remove photos from the internet, terrible robot waiters, crowd-sourcing science problems via video games, and how does arm hair know when to stop growing? (No seriously…if you know that last one, let me know.) Enjoy!
