Luxury condos cast their shadows over those who slumber in the lee of North Station, wrapped in rough gray blankets. Krejci scores in the last seconds of the game, sending boisterous fans off to the sports bars that surround TD Garden; workers pour out of just-constructed offices to eat gourmet burgers and drink craft beer. In the backdrop, the wishbone towers of the Zakim soar above the sparkling water. This neighborhood is once again a dynamic part of the city, with all of its contradictions and imperfections and stories simultaneously told.

By Daniel CleryMar. 14, 2019 , 9:30 AM PENTICTON, CANADA—Reporting from the Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory here requires old-school techniques: pad and pen. Upon arrival, I must turn off my digital recorder and cellphone and stash them in a shielded room with a Faraday cage—a metal mesh that prevents stray electromagnetic signals from escaping. The point is to keep any interference away from the observatory's newest radio telescope, the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME). On a clear, cold day in January, Nikola Milutinovic stands on the vertiginous gantry that runs along the focus of one of CHIME's four 100-meter-long, trough-shaped dishes. Milutinovic, a scientific engineer at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, scans their reflective surfaces for snow, which generally sifts through the metallic mesh but sometimes sticks and freezes. Snow-covered hills surround him, shielding CHIME from the cellphone towers, TV … [Read more...] about A homespun Canadian telescope could explain mysterious radio signals from the distant universe

This is the story of the ultimate cult: a wired, high-tech, designer-drug, billion-dollar army of New Age zealots, focused around the leadership of a blind and bearded madman, armed with weapons of mass destruction. Like scenes of an apocalyptic future in a cyberpunk novel, this story is also the stuff of nightmares. Cultists wired electrodes to their heads while chanting ancient mantras and logging on to computer nets. Methamphetamine, LSD, and truth serum - the product of homemade laboratories equipped with the latest gear - ran through their veins. Those same labs worked at refining enough chemical and biological weapons to kill millions. Other cultists attempted to build a nuclear bomb while massive facilities were built to manufacture handguns and explosives. All this activity went toward preparing for - and then unleashing - Armageddon. In 1984, guru Shoko Asahara had a one-room yoga school, a handful of devotees, and a dream: world domination. A decade later, Aum Supreme Truth … [Read more...] about Aum’s Shoko Asahara and the Cult at the End of the World
