Toward the end of WWII, scientists began working seriously to develop a wearable propulsion device that would enable a single user to fly. Now a reality, jet packs are prohibitively expensive and difficult to control. Because jet pack flights are brief, most do not achieve the minimum altitude necessary to deploy a parachute in the event of a breakdown. What is currently the only practical use for jet packs?

Any two randomly selected cheetahs will be so similar genetically that a skin graft from one will likely provoke no immune response in the other. In the distant past, cheetahs underwent a population bottleneck—an evolutionary event in which a species nearly dies out and is repopulated by a few individuals whose genes are then disproportionately reflected in the ensuing generations. All humans can trace their ancestry back to a single woman. When did she live?
