More and more every nanosecond, the world we inhabit is explained by, controlled by, and made up of data. Where you go, what you read, the weather, your food, your body -- all data. And we are acquiring the power to gather, understand, and use that data in never-before-seen ways.

The incredible innovations, like drone swarms and perpetual flight, bringing aviation into the world of tomorrow. Plus: today's greatest sci-fi writers predict the future, the science behind the summer's biggest blockbusters, a Doctor Who-themed DIY 'bot, the organs you can do without, and much more.
