Lots of interesting news this week, and we have a lot of fun sharing it. The first drone capable of flying humans has been developed in Germany, the Volocopter VC200. Want to take a ride?  Check out our links page for videos.  An International Space Station Astronaut participated in last weekend’s London Marathon, using gear aboard the space station, including an iPad for virtually being on the London running route.

And GMO Mosquitoes are in the news of late as the latest frontier for eradicating humanity’s greatest pest.  But at what cost? What could go wrong?  We also got a kick out of reporting about Brainprints, a new form of security. And of particular interest to our live audience is the field of light therapy and optogenetics, which promises breakthroughs in pain control and wound healing. Researcher Bobby Wilder calls in to gives us some DIY info on using lasers..Enjoy!
