The Wirecutter performed a battery of tests on two top-performing
routers with six devices, and the results were unmistakable: If your
current router is at least three years old, there is no reason not to
upgrade to a new router.
Not only can a newer router improve the speed and range for users, the
routers typically have upgraded internal components and strong external
antennas. Many also support the latest Wi-Fi standard — 802.11ac —
which has top speeds that are nearly three times faster than the

“NASA is developing the next generation of suit technologies that will enable deep space exploration by incorporating advancements in science and technology,” says Jason Crusan, director of Advanced Exploration Systems in NASA’s Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate. “We have learned a lot about space suit performance through our experience on the International Space Station, and designing for a planetary surface will require us to build on that knowledge.”
The agency is asking entrants to create a test with the ability to simulate the level of fiber degradation associated with exposure to lunar dust and dirt. The results will need to detail any damage (such as cuts, color changes or tears) caused to the material, as well as detail the size and volume of particles that make it through the various layers of the garment.
Upon completion of the competition, NASA expects to award three US$5,000 prizes.
