Houseplants Will Purify Your Air: NASA

Houseplants can bring much-needed life to any room, and more and more milennials are choosing houseplants over pets and children. The millennial houseplant obsession is real and based in large part by the fact that many of us are doomed to be renters in urban environments, so our exposure to nature has to be brought indoors. But whether you live in the suburbs, the country, or the city, a previously drab and uninspired space can immediately be spruced up by the addition of an interesting houseplant.

But houseplants aren’t just for decor—they can have health benefits too. Science says the …

SpaceX in race with Boeing to crewed flights

The successful voyage of SpaceX’s unmanned Crew Dragon to the International Space Station this weekend put the US one tantalizing step closer to the day when American rockets will again ferry the nation’s astronauts into space.

Sometime this summer, both Elon Musk’s Space Exploration Technologies Corp. and Boeing Co. are scheduled to launch crews toward the ISS, ending a long drought in which the US has had to hitch rides in Russia’s Soyuz capsules.

Volvo To Drop Its Cars’ top speeds to 112 MPH

The days of underground Volvo drag races are limited. No more will practical station wagons meet on empty streets at midnight, drivers revving their engines and eyeing the finish line with steely intent, Birkenstocks slamming down on gas pedals.

OK, so the Swedish carmaker isn’t precisely known for making hot rods. Still, its S90 sedans and V90 hatchbacks can hit top speeds north of 150 miles per hour, if you pay for the maximum horsepower — that’s according to the manufacturer’s specs.
