Peptides Derived from the Tight Junction Protein, Claudin-1, Disrupt Skin Barrier and Promote Responsiveness to an Epicutaneous Vaccine - Journal of Investigative Dermatology
This suggests a patch based flu vaccine booster might work if you had a traditional flu vaccine injection first, allowing easier immunization maintenance

Rocket recycling – catching rocket stages after launch
Huh, catching a winged first stage booster rocket by the nose, air towing to a landing site, then releasing it again so it can glide to land. Avoids boost-back for recovery (more fuel for main flight), doesn't require a landing site forward in the ground track for the booster either. Catch-and-release, like a big mouth billy bass...

Spray On Kit
Apparently this is the real deal, a nanoparticle/nanocapacitor suspension paint. A spray on paint kit to create either a conformal antenna or to enhance an existing antenna. They painted a tree and were able to send VHF signals 14 miles. Boosting existing antennas is anywhere from 10% to 40% (40% was 20dBm for an iPhone 3 test). The videos also talk about potential uses in other EMF applications, such as (?AC) electric motor windings.

Paul Allen funding a newspace start that mixes Burt Rutan designing a monster carrier plane, Elon Musk's Falcon 9 converted into a Pegasus style winged air launch rocket, and some dudes who will build the rocket/aircraft interface who previously did the MOAB for the military. This might have legs. The carrier aircraft is drool-worthy for other newspace companies, in case this venture flames out...

The DIRECT guys are proposing Leviathan, an update to the old Truax Sea Dragon design using annular aerospike rocket engines. Which is exactly the idea I was kicking around with college friends back before 2000. Sea Dragon basically revolved around the logical end to the big dumb booster argument, making a rocket so large that certain materials handling issues become easier. Namely, using submarine pressure hull manufacturing techniques on half inch thick steel plates formed into a cylindrical tank body. You build this in a shipyard, not a clean room hangar. Due to size, sea transport and launh is must, but that ends up making a lot of other things easier. Leviathan neatly sidesteps one of the issues with Sea Dragon; the second stage expandable nozzle skirt. Aerospikes get almost equivalent performance for less complexity and risk. Reusuability is easier at this size, and sets the ground for SSTO.
