Description

FROM OUR LATEST ISSUE, JUNE 2015

• America’s Next Spyplane — The SR-72 will travel at six times the speed of sound (twice the speed of its predecessor). Traveling at such extremes means it will need weapons designed specifically for the task.

• Long Live the Mammoth — De-extinction might not happen exactly the way it does in Jurassic Park, but using a starkly similar process, bringing the mammoth—or at least mammothlike creatures—back could very well be possible.

• The New Faces of Energy — Entrepreneurs and startups are working to change the way we use and produce energy with molten salt reactors, tiny turbines, and a method for turning plastic into fuel—to name a few.

• The Cure-All — Stem cells are being marketed as a cure to chronic pain. But is the unregulated, unproven treatment too good to be true? Our writer goes under the knife to find out.

• Now — A smart grill that talks back, sensors to sniff out what’s in the air, the weird world of mobile payments, and more!

• Next — The safety of self-driving cars, the ups and downs of everyone’s favorite drug, a robot built for disasters, and more!

• Manual — How to build a DIY particle detector, a real-life tricorder inspired by science fiction, absurd machines that do silly tasks, and more!

Customer Reviews

Poor update, without issues warning

This latest update seems rushed. I now know that only older issues are affected by the pdf-scan style pages, so I can understand if the update broke something in the old digital issues. I can give a star back for that. A one-time pop-up would have been nice to explain the issue though.

But this new update is still much slower than it used to be--or at least I perceive it to be. Pages shouldn't load halfway, giving you a blurry image to look at until it fully loads. The old app simply had white pages until it loaded fully, which still didn't seem to take as long as in this new update.

Why did they ruin the old issues?

After the update the old versions of the Magazines were PDF scans of the paper editions. I pay extra to HAVE the digital edition, the digital scans are unreadable on the iPad. I was behind by several issues and am really upset about loosing the real digital versions. Thankfully it does look like the NEW editions are back to normal. If they had stopped making the digital edition I literally would have canceled my subscription to both the digital and paper versions.

Couldn't access subscription

I subscribed to the digital issue of this magazine with hopes of sharing it with my teenage boys. They love anything to do with science and technology. I have not had access to the magazines since day one and never got a real reply back as to why. They have no record of my subscription but they have all of my account information and charged me for another year. I had to go through iTunes to get my subscription canceled and get my money back since the magazine company would not respond.
