But they weren’t sure how to interpret these indirect clues.
Temperatures have risen in almost every city in the United States since 1970, but no metropolitan area is heating up as quickly as Las Vegas.
Couple the beam from a 100 gigawatt laser with a single-layer lightsail and remarkable things can happen.
