    When the world's most powerful laser zaps a target, it's eerily silent. If you're close enough to know the exact moment the system fires, chances are you're standing in a darkened control room, watching a silent countdown. The only hint that something has occurred is a timer that hits zero and immediately starts counting up again. But hidden from view is an experiment of staggering proportions and...

He was 68 then, with piercing blue eyes and a full head of hair dyed chestnut. People who knew him called him a "visionary" and a "mad, brilliant scientist." For nearly 20 years, he had been president of the Alfred Mann Foundation, a medical resea... View full abstract»

    PICTURE AN ALL-ELECTRIC VEHICLE cruising down the highway, emitting little noise and no noxious fumes. It's such an improvement that you have to wonder why only a handful of all-electric vehicles are now available on the mass market. · Here's a big reason: Picture the driver of that same car getting a call from a relative living far away who needs immediate help.
