What do climate change and college admissions have in common? Intelligence, according to Prof. Robert Sternberg. At a Tuesday evening lecture, the human development professor argued that flawed Western notions of intelligence are responsible for ingrained social structures and world destruction.
As most of us are aware, much of US security and intelligence data comes from satellites orbiting the earth. With growing suspicion of countries possessing nuclear weaponry, celestial technology has seen major innovation in recent years. On Tuesday, President Obama approved a bill calling for the purchase of multimillion-dollar commercial imagery technology, including several satellites with unprecedented abilities. Most of the advancements in satellite spying have been delayed since 2005 and the Obama administration is now working to reinvigorate the program and bring intelligence to a new level.
