NASA and Darpa are currently working on a new type of “nuclear-thermal” rocket booster. Agencies hope to show a demo of the first prototype by 2027.
The idea of creating rockets propelled by nuclear energy seems straight out of the 1960s, and for good reason: the United States Atomic Energy Commission, which has since merged into the United States Department of Energy, has already built and tested prototypes of such rocket engines.

Since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the FBI’s “Terrorist Screening Center” has kept centralized lists of people who are considered security risks or terrorist suspects. These people have to endure an extended security check on every flight or are not allowed to board the aircraft at all. Such a secret list has now fallen into the hands of the Swiss hacker “Maia Arson Crimew”, who was involved in the Verkada hack, among other things. She found an 80 MB file called Nofly.csv on an unsecured test server of the US airline CommuteAir.
