Happy 70th Birthday 1984. It's happening right now in China.

George Orwell's 1984 was published exactly 70 years ago today but its horrifying vision of a world in which every citizen is monitored at all times by an all-knowing, all-seeing authoritarian " Big Brother " government seems oddly closer and more threatening than ever.

Polar bear fur-inspired insulation is even better than the real thing

Those carbon tubes were subsequently wound together into a "spaghetti-like" arrangement, forming a small cube of insulating aerogel. When tested, that aerogel was found to be both lighter and more resistant to heat flow than other insulating materials. Additionally, it was highly hydrophobic (water-repellant), plus the tubes were even stretchier than hairs from the actual bears.
