Today, we look at the future, and then at the past.

 The future is almost here: In Dubai, firefighters are going to use jetpacks to deal with high-rise fires! The Martin Jetpack is providing the technology.

I had not heard of Zofia Rydet before today. At age 67, she decided she was going to photograph the inside of every house in Poland. She didn’t get to everyone, but she created thousands of photos showing an amazing cross-section of Poland in the late twentieth century. Fortunately, many of those photos are now available digitally!

Programming note: Tomorrow is the (final, we hope?) dental surgery day, so we’ll be off, but hopefully back on Thursday. See you then!
