July, 2019 – August, 2019
We are exploring energy in this edition. While it was one of the most fundamental inventions of the last century, that literally gave us all more time in the day to pursue stuff, gave us all the modern comforts, it has always been in the back-burner for most of us from IITs. It was never very cool. And honestly burning fossils to power our modern lives, at a fundamental level, never seemed like a great idea. Sure enough, we have destroyed the planet as we know it, as we all became slaves to modern, well-powered life. It is time for a refresh though. The last decade has been one of the most innovative for power which makes us hopeful about a better future for our kids.
