"For much of the past two centuries, scientists have struggled to explain why, exactly, ice is slippery — and why skates can glide atop it so well." http://bit.ly/2oeUdZN

    The surprising science of why ice is so slippery
    Winter Olympic ice sports depend on this one fact: Ice is slippery. The low friction of ice is why speedskaters can reach 35 mph, why figure skaters can twirl in dizzying circles, and why a 40-pound curling stone can glide and accomplish whatever the heck the point of curling is.

With Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies increasing in popularity, researchers are looking into the impact of maintaining the systems that support them on our climate. http://bit.ly/2oacs2f

    Bitcoin: The Surprising New Climate Threat
    Combusting coal. Driving cars and trucks. Flying airplanes. Operating industrial parks. The list of top carbon-intense activities may soon be getting a new addition: bitcoin mining. To most folks working outside of tech and economic spheres, it's mind-boggling to conceptualize just what bitcoin is, never mind that it has the potential to have a very real - and very large - impact on our physical world.
