How complex systems fail: Lessons from Boeing’s 737 MAX 8 crashes – Part I

A traditional approach to understanding Boeing’s 737 MAX 8 failures would result in us attempting to draw a line between cause and effect, beginning with the issues with the angle of attack sensors. But taking a complex systems approach, especially through the lens of the sand pile model, provides a more useful way of viewing these types of incidents, writes Dr Sean Brady in Part I of a two-part article.

Researchers produce artificial 'worm gut' that breaks down plastics

A team of scientists have developed an artificial 'worm gut' to break down plastics, offering hope for a nature-inspired method to tackle the global plastic pollution problem.
