Description

Welcome to "Origins and Endings, " a special edition of Scientific American. For our debut on the iPad we curated some of our favorite articles from two single-topic issues, "Origins" and "The End, " and added interactive informational graphics that show how things work as well as slide shows, audio interviews with scientists and video supplements.

The app tells a compelling story: from the origins of the universe, of life on Earth and our early human ancestors through to what happens to our bodies after we die, the odds of an apocalypse, and the end of time. Our interactive feature "How Much Is Left?" demonstrates how long it will take before some of Earth's most crucial resources are depleted, whereas "The Future of Biotech and Agritech" offers smart suggestions for alternatives. Finally, in the app's Innovations section we explain how computing began long before the transistor and how that technology evolved into technologies today, including your iPad. We explain the origins of many everyday items and phenomena found in the kitchen, office and the fields of entertainment, transportation and medicine.
