EDITOR’S ESSAY

ICE SUIT • Iceland’s unearthly landscapes have caught the attention of scientists looking to plan for future missions to Mars and the Moon. While it can’t quite provide the physical atmosphere (or lack of), its rocky plains and lava tubes aren’t a million miles from the ones astronauts will encounter on their walkabouts

SAVING OUR WILD SPECIES BEGINS AT HOME • The large marsh grasshopper was once ever-present across eastern England’s wetlands. But after decades of habitat destruction, these handsome insects have become fragmented and locally extinct. Now, London-based Citizen Zoo has a plan to bring them back – by turning regular people into at-home zookeepers

The new selfie: go-anywhere digital avatars

WE HAVE TO STOP SEEING ONLY THE DARK SIDE OF CRYPTO • The developing world is embracing bitcoin as a way to engage with modern global finance

THE TOXIC SPILL: HOW REDDIT PLANS TO CLEAN UP • To move past the incels, doxxers and edgelords, the site must balance privacy with going public

Is an AI the world’s smartest sailor? • Team Emirates New Zealand sailed to victory in this year’s America’s Cup on hydrofoils fine-tuned by McKinsey & Company’s reinforcement-learning AI. That same technology could now bring winning ways to other businesses

TIME TRAVEL FOR ATHLETES • OKKULO uses lighting conditions and sensors to help train players’ brains and bodies to react faster to stimuli – such as a 230kph ball

CELL LINES FOR LAB TESTS CAN GET WITH THE PROGRAM • Developing drugs to tackle diseases such as Alzheimer’s can mean running tests on cells that are totally different to a therapy’s intended target. But programming bespoke cells may transform testing – and create new treatments

Kitchens reinvented with Siemens inductionAir Plus • Kitchens aren’t just for cooking, thanks to the innovative integrated design of Siemens inductionAir Plus. Cutting-edge technology enables you to cook like a pro, stay in total control and still keep your guests entertained

GETTING THE FULL MEASURE OF OUR METHANE PROBLEM • From giant wildfires to sickly polar bears, there’s no shortage of shocking images depicting the need for climate action – but reliable data to help determine how to act is harder to come by. Scientists at the National Physical Laboratory are using precise monitoring equipment to track our impact on the planet more accurately than ever before

Data alone doesn’t tell us much about what the source of methane actually is

Lesson learned: making tutoring available to all

WIRED insider • Events, new products and promotions

STEP INSIDE THE ENDLESS AUDIO LOOP • 65daysofstatic don’t want to put themselves out of a job, but their music algorithms have been churning out tunes non-stop since March 2021, with no end in sight…

READY… STEADY… SCOOT! MICRORIDES GET A GREEN LIGHT TO GO FASTER • Micromobility is heading from the streets to the speedway as e-scooters get supercharged for their first-ever race series

GLOBAL HOOKUPS: WHO OWNS THE PIPES THAT CONNECT CONTINENTS? • Sprawling subsea cables are the backbone of the internet, stretching for thousands of kilometres. But ever more of this critical infrastructure is in the hands of tech giants

AN LGBTQ+ BANK: NO RAINBOW REQUIRED • Daylight serves its community with queer-specific financial products and true inclusivity

The UK is growing again

I started listening to what crops have to say, so growth can be...
