The Future of Water
 
10:11
The world’s supply of cheap and clean fresh water will likely plummet as the climate warms and populations boom. Can we find ways to conserve, cut waste, and find new sources before it’s too late? The latest installment of our What Happens Next series looks for solutions in an unlikely spot: a city perched on the edge of the world’s oldest desert. For the residents of Windhoek, Namibia, the arid future arrived long before the growing freshwater crisis made headlines around the world. And this city responded to worsening cycles of drought by tapping water resources from a radical source that was already on hand: wastewater from their own city sewers. And while the technology for building a toilet-to-tap management system isn’t new, the mindset required to do here offers a lesson to any city facing an increasingly arid future.

Shrek fandom and its weird, crowdsourced, movie remake

The Future of College
 
08:53
It’s hard to imagine a future for college that isn’t touched by the ongoing digital revolution. But the disruption coming to higher education may not be what we expect. On-line courses may well transform how universities deliver knowledge, but economists say digital learning isn’t likely to replace universities entirely. In a world where technology is upending jobs and industries at an ever-faster pace, graduates may need to retrain and learn new skills long after they’ve received their diplomas. This could mean colleges may become more necessary than ever, but only if they rethink the time spent there as a single stage of life. That’s why institutions like Georgia Tech are betting on a future where schools welcome back students throughout their careers, helping them stay competitive in a job market that’s transforming faster all the time. -- In collaboration with Retro Report, learn more here: qz.com/is/what-happens-next-2 Watch on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/WhatHappensNextByQZandRetroReport/ Quartz is a digital news outlet dedicated to telling stories at the intersection of the important and the interesting.

Bitcoin, blockchains, and the future of money
 
11:27
Bitcoin and blockchains: The future of money explained with ancient stones on the tiny Pacific island of Yap. Ethereum, Bitcoin and other blockchains are being called the future of money. This decentralized, digital money aims to replace physical cash and middlemen like VISA or your bank. But is this really such a new idea? We travelled to the remote Pacific island of Yap, where an ancient form of stone money has more in common with the future than you'd think.

NASA wants to 3D print houses on Mars
 
02:10
NASA already has a plan to house astronauts on Mars. NASA’s 3D-Printed Habitat Challenge asked engineers to design houses that could be built on Mars by robots using 3D printing technology. NASA recently announced winners of phase three of the competition and each house has a futuristic design. Each team was asked to consider using recycled plastic and "indigenous resources"—material found on Mars (like Martian rocks). The idea is to keep construction waste free and done by robots. This approach would also work on earth and NASA hopes this project can advance 3D printing technology in the construction sector. The team working on NASA’s Mars challenge say the project could become a reality some time around late 2030.

NASA’s fastest spacecraft will spend 6 years slowing down
 
02:28
NASA's new solar probe will touch the Sun, but getting there will be difficult. The Parker Solar Probe launches this week and will spend years flying through space. Eventually, the spacecraft will get within 4 million miles of the Sun, close enough to collect data from its corona. The solar probe is the fastest machine ever built, and requires an extremely sophisticated trajectory to reach the center of our solar system. The Parker Solar Probe will reach its final orbit in 2025. An earlier version of this video incorrectly identified the Parker Solar Probe's mission design lead; we apologize for the error.
