Issue #75 - February 2015

The February 2015 issue arrives to the familiar, swelling chords of Strauss' Also sprach Zarathustra. As the sun slowly rises over the limb of Saturn's enigmatic ice-moon Enceladus, we ask the eternal question: is there life... out there... in the dark... CUE THE BRASS! Seriously though, new discoveries about what some of Earth's weirdest lifeforms can do - and how they do it - make us wonder... if life is out there, will it be stranger than we can imagine? Of course that's not all...

We also profile the worst jobs in science (BEES! Mutant flamethrowing Bonobo rabies-infected sewer-pipe tax audit root canal paperwork!). Then it's out into the open air to ask... is air actually making us sick? What's in that stuff anyway?

Meanwhile, it's looking like the V6 is the super-engine of the future, not that you need one to ride around on an affordable underwater scooter. Plus cleaning your teeth with sound, next-gen robot vacuums, the pure awesomeness of the Theremin, a bunch of nostalgic pictures of the Lunar Roving Vehicle, and quite a lot more...

Including: why are product manuals so short and basic these days?

All these questions and more are answered within!
