Automakers and technology companies racing to develop self-driving vehicles are running into a problem: cars that can think are no good without affordable and reliable technology that allows cars to see.
Chaotic market for one sensor stalls self-driving cars
Sometimes in forecasting tornadoes, you can get everything technically right, and yet it all goes horribly wrong.
Tornado forecasting improves, but still deaths keep coming
NASA's Mars InSight mission is stuck between a rock and a hard place — quite literally.

Until recently, trying to study key traits of cells from people and other animals often meant analyzing bulk samples of tissue, producing a mushed-up average of results from many cell types. It was like trying to learn about a banana by studying a strawberry-blueberry-orange-banana smoothie.
New techniques let scientists zero in on individual cells
