At the end of the second world war, the allies captured 21 top, surviving Nazi leaders, and put them on trial in Nuremberg, Germany.

What made them tick and why di…
 
Wherever you happen to be listening to this show, at some level beneath your feet the rocks in the Earth reach a temperature hot enough to boil water and create steam. With steam, you can turn a turbine and create electricity. If everywhere on Earth is just a few kilometers away from tapping into this source of energy, why don’t we use this everywh…
 
There are some subjects that are perceived to be mind-numbingly dull and boring. One such subject is accounting. Yet, believe it or not, accounting and bookkeeping have not only have been around since the dawn of human civilization, but they also had a hand in shaping it.

Located on the far right side of the periodic table are the Noble Gases. These elements, six of which can be found in nature, are unlike any other elements. They don’t play well with the other elements and are pretty content to be by themselves. Nonetheless, they have found a unique place in technical products, industrial applications, and even spa…

Creating such a world for humans may be far off, but one man did try to create a utopia for rats. He created a world that had everything they would want and where all their needs are taken …
 
On September 2, 1945, on the deck of the battleship USS Missouri, the Japanese Empire formally and unconditionally surrendered. With that, the second world war was over and everyone stopped fighting, went home, and lived happily ever after. Except, not everyone.

In 1838, an American portrait painter by the name of Samuel Morse developed a system whereby signals could be sent down an electrical wire. This system allowed for information to be sent almost instantly over vast distances. However, sending pulses of electromagnetic energy down a wire isn’t in and of itself communication. So, he developed a system…
 
For over 2,000 years, stories have been passed down about the famous and infamous people from ancient Rome. While many of these names still are familiar to most people today, it doesn’t really tell us much about how the average person lived back then?

When one thinks of the history of North America, it often invokes images of native Americans and cowboys riding on horseback. However, horses weren’t in the Westen Hemisphere when Europeans arrived.

Situated in the north of the nation of Chile lies one of the most extreme environments on Planet Earth. The Atacama Desert. What makes the Atacama Desert so unique isn’t its size or its temperature, it is the amount of precipitation it gets….or rather the lack thereof.

In 1940, an investigation conducted by the British military found that only 1 in 5 of their bombers were actually landing bombs within five miles of their intended targets.

Even though it has since been surpassed in height, it still remains the iconic bu…

Justin Ahrens, Jeff Bloom, Michele Pistone, and Kelly Wang discuss the last day of 2022’s HOW Design Live in Boston. What a great event, and one that feels way too short.
