Technology | WaveCel
Interesting engineered structure to provide protection from linear and rotational impacts, as an alternative to traditional EPS foam helmets. Seems to use a slipping/buckling triangle design? I wonder what kinds of improvements there would be using a smaller microstructure?

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...
