The Monitor ep. 6 - The Killing Episode [Video]

On the horizon: killer asteroids, killer robots, a new way to kill killer pathogens, and an unkillable home for all the world's seeds

This week on The Monitor: The new seed vault looks exactly like Superman's arctic HQ. Robots are coming to a war near you, and we might all be annihliated by an asteroid in 2036. Plus, bacteriophages vs. MRSA.
