Click, Print, Gun: The Inside Story of the 3D-Printed Gun Movement

  Being a 3D-printing novice, I was once somewhat skeptical of the promise behind what’s being billed as a truly game-changing technology. I saw Makerbot CEO Bre Pettis on the cover of Wired in late September, and while the novelty of the process incited wonder in my inner 10-year-old, I didn’t think much about it...

New Spaced Out: The Space Composer

I am not someone who has a background in science. While it always intrigued me it was not something that ever came innately. Working at Motherboard has helped me redefine the somewhat nebulous notion of science and what application it has in real life. In producing the second season of Spaced Out, it seemed important...
The Man who Hunts Spy Satellites

The Man who Hunts Spy Satellites

The Paris episode of Spaced Out is out. See my original text here: Thierry Legault is not your average amateur astronomer, inviting the kids over and pointing a dinky backyard telescope at the Big Dipper.

Tardigrades Strike Back (with a little help from Mike Shaw)

“The First Animal to Survive in Space” struck a chord with the internet. Often, we here at Motherboard are not ever sure of why something pieces sail into the stratosphere while others remain cast away like an old teddy bear prize at Coney Island. With 9 million views and counting and over 20,000 comments Motherboard...

First Animal to Survive in Space

Watch my ep of Spaced Out! Mike Shaw is a quiet unassuming man in love with the wilderness. He also knows far more about tardigrades then almost anyone. These microscopic creatures, whose name comes from the German for “slow walker,” and who are sometimes called “water bears,” after their bear-like gait, are biological oddities. While...
