This week we tackle a listener-submitted topic: the physics-defying “EM Drive” rocket. Find out the fantastic promise–yet much less fantastic reality–of “a reactionless propulsion system that supposedly generates thrust by converting electrical energy via microwaves.” Also discussed: “Stand By Me” and “Kindergarten Cop,” the Enchanted Forest, Corpse Flower, ClintonKaine domain, Jack Davis dies, Ice Bucket Challenge works, Google simulates Quantum Computing, Netflix’s “SlowTV,” the Magna Carta is in Portland, Todd is perplexed by water filtration straws, and celebrating 50 episodes! Thank you to everyone for listening – it’s been a fantastic ride!
