uss zumwalt: the next generation destroyer


seventy-three years ago today, the famous world war ii battleship missouri was christened in new york. it was state-of-the-art back then, but a far cry from a brand new -- and somewhat more controversial -- addition to the nation’s fleet. our sunday morning cover story is reported by david martin: if batman had a warship, one admiral said, it would look like the uss zumwalt -- the newest, most a nced warship that the navy is bringing to the fleet.martin rode with captain james kirk (no relation to “star trek”’s captain kirk, although plenty of people have noted the coincidence) from norfolk, virginia up to baltimore, where the zumwalt -- with its one-of-a-kind look -- was officially commissioned as a destroyer in the united states navy.“the zumwalt looks radically different,” kirk said. “i

sometimes the best solution to a problem isn’t alway the most complex, and, similarly, the best answer isn’t always a new one one. while us humans man just be getting our feet wet (relatively speaking) with ingenuity, the animal kingdom has millennia of evolutionary trial-and-error to learn from.more: interactive map shows how animals will flee warming temperaturesbiomimicry, as it’s called, is a method for creating solutions to human challenges by emulating designs and ideas found in nature. it’s used everywhere: buildings, vehicles, and even materials — so we thought it’d be fun to round up a few of the most noteworthy examples. here are eight of the most astounding technological applications inspired by nature.bullet trains inspired by kingfisher birds123rf/josemanuelgelpidiaz123rf/tupu
