We took a look at how police body cameras work and examined some studies on just how effective (or ineffective) they can be.

With erupting concern over police brutality, law enforcement agencies are turning to body-worn cameras to collect evidence and protect police and suspects. But how do they work? And are they even really effective?

This morning’s liftoff of NASA’s Orion is the first step in what is expected to be a long and fabled history for the spacecraft. The deep-space craft, launched into orbit on a Delta IV rocket at 7:05 a.m. today, could put astronauts back on the moon in 2020 and take them to Mars by 2030.

More and more -- that's what we'll see from plastics and composites in 2015, more types of plastics and more ways they can be used. Two of the fastest-growing uses will be automotive parts, plus medical implants and devices. New types of plastics will include biodegradable materials, plastics that can be easily recycled, and some that do both.

Polish design firm NAS-DRA has proposed parasitic robotic drones that capture carbon dioxide from the air during the day and release it at night to plants growing on their wings. #robotics

Most science-fiction writers come to their subject well-schooled in the liberal arts, not science. Here’s a look at the few classic science-fiction writers who were actually trained in science, be it physics, math, or engineering.

Most science-fiction writers come to their subject well-schooled in the liberal arts, not science. Phillip K. Dick studied philosophy. Roger Zelazny picked up an MA from Columbia in Elizabethan and Jacobean drama. A surprisingly small handful started out as professionals in technology. Here's a look at the few classic science-fiction writers who were actually trained in science, be it physics, math, or engineering.
