    The Internet will break down without new biologically inspired routing. The future Internet will need smarter routing algorithms to handle diverse data flows and prevent failures. Although there are no tried-and-true solutions yet, early designs might follow an architecture like this one. View full abstract»

    Two decades ago, the U.S. Navy began designing what it then called its "21st-century destroyers." These were to be a fleet of 32 guided-missile destroyers that would be able to cruise near coastlines and attack forces on land with mind-boggling might.

    One of the very first facts you learn about electromagnetism-long before you walk into your first physics class-is that every magnet has two poles. Cut a bar magnet in half and you wind up with two magnets, each of which has its own north and south poles. And that's true for every single object in our experience that boasts a magnetic field-whether it's the entire Earth or an iron atom. There are ... View full abstract»
