Where science fiction becomes science fact - that is the place Hank is exploring in today’s episode of SciShow. Many inventions we use today were first imagined in stories that described fantastical futures.  Hank talks about the origins of four of these: the cell phone, the submarine, the telemanipulator (or robot arm), and the taser.  Blast off for knowledge!

What’s Happening to Honey Bees?

You’ve probably heard about the sudden and mysterious drop in honey bee populations throughout the U.S.A. and Europe. Beekeepers used to report average losses in their worker bees of about 5-10% a year, but starting around 2006, that rate jumped to about 30%. Today, many large beekeeping operations are reporting that up to 40 or 50 percent of their swarms have mysteriously disappeared. This massive die-off of honey bee populations has been dubbed colony collapse disorder, and it is a big, big deal. Find out more in today’s episode of SciShow.

WILL YOU BE IRON MAN?

We have the technology! We can rebuild…ourselves!

Human interface technologies like Google Glass, robotic prosthetics, and bionic eyes have the potential to help people recover lost abilities, but also to grant us new abilities. Will you someday be able to turn on your super-human hearing just by thinking about it? Maybe…if you live long enough. The question of whether we /should/ well, we’ll leave that to the philosophers. This is SciShow!
