Your Engineering Inspiration for Saturday 08 August 2020


Looking for a more in-depth look at recent developments in engineering, science and tech? Our Explainers section might help.

In recent weeks, supplementary articles have covered: the recent discovery in Earth science of the 'bloblike features' that lurk under our feet (and their relevance to seismic activity); an overview of string theory and why it persists; speculation on how Jeff Bezos' iPhone X was hacked; and an enlightening update from the frontier of fertility technology.

The stories that you're delivered—in this newsletter and across the site—will depend on your customisation preferences.

Very best,
