    • Back to more science-y stuff: Two new pieces of technologies from the U.S and Australia are harvesting water taken from air lying in desert environments – The U.S using special metal frameworks and Australia using…well, you’ll just have to listen in to find out what we’re using.
    • Out of control Chinese space station Tiangong-1 is due to crash back to Earth this weekend, and…
    • Last but not least: New DNA editing technology helps brew delicious beer – skipping the need for hops.
