MSP284. Weird Science: Reverse Aging, Abandoned Mines & Brainrot

Once again, Rich Bradbury and Matt Armitage explore the world of weird science. Matt looks at the potential anti-aging effects of space travel on billionaires, the use of AI to decode dog vocalizations, and the accidental broadcast of a NASA training exercise.

Returning to the theme of innovative energy solutions, they discuss a new material from MIT that uses soot, carbon black, in concrete to store electricity. Before turning to gravity batteries in abandoned mines and skyscrapers, and the concept of buildings as energy storage devices.

Finally, Rich confronts Matt’s brainrot, a term used to describe the impact of social media on one's worldview and mental health.
