The approximately 500,000 pieces of human-made debris orbiting our planet pose a threat to satellites, space vehicles, and astronauts. To clean up the problem, Stanford engineers have developed a robotic gripper that has "fingers" lined with gecko-inspired adhesives that work in space: [ Stanford.io Link ]

We're sad to share that Maryam Mirzakhani, the first woman to win a Fields Medal, has died. She was a pure mathematician and was drawn to solving some of the most difficult problems in math. She was particularly excellent at developing ways to calculate the surfaces of curved objects with increasing precision, which has many downstream implications in everyday life.
