One of the most fantastical ideas to spring from the minds of humans has become a common trope — time travel. As a genre, time travel dates back around 100 to 150 years ago, with books like The Time Machine, A Connecticut Yankee in King Authur's Court, and even A Christmas Carol. But the concept is far older than that, beginning with the human sense of regret. Nerdwriter digs into the past to find the origin of trying to change what's already happened, or what's going to happen in the future.
On a lonely stretch of Nevada highway, Koenigsegg smashed the record for the fastest street-legal car ever made. The Agera RS averaged 278 mph over two runs, with a max top speed of 284 mph — leaving the previous record-holder, the Bugatti Chiron, wondering what happened. Ride along with the Agera RS on this incredible top speed run, and then watch the same car drive to get lunch in this video.
For those that grew up in late '70s and '80s, the graphic designs of NASA are some of the most memorable of the period, appearing on everything from hats to the Space Shuttle. This reprinting of the NASA Graphics Standards Manual celebrates this outstanding identity system, which was used from 1975 to 1992. Recreated for public use for the first time from the personal copies of the original designers, Richard Danne and Bruce Blackburn, it covers the logo, placement, color schemes, and other design standards that helped capture the imagination of a generation and make the American space agency a lasting, iconic part of our legacy of exploration. Included are scans of Danne's personal copy of the original manual, a forward from Danne, an essay by Christopher Bonanos, reproductions of the original NASA 35mm slide presentation, and scans of the 'Managers Guide', a follow up booklet distributed by NASA. Each copy is individually wrapped in a foil static shield, adding even more nostalgic rocket-age flair to this iconic design reference.

As deceptively simple as cooking a steak might seem, it's easy to mess a good cut of meat up. The number one cause of bad meat is over cooking — anything over medium rare and you're doing it wrong.

The leading cause of death is being alive. Our bodies are full of zombies — senescent cells that refuse to die when they should. As these cells accumulate, they wreak havoc on healthy cells around them — and making us age in the process. Kurzgesagt looks at how scientists are looking at reversing aging as a means to keep us healthier for longer.
