The future is now. Distillations, therefore, is pausing to compare what people once predicted the modern world would look like to the actual reality on the ground—and in the air. In today’s episode we first take a look at the magic bullet, a cure-all medicine inspired by the success of antibiotics. Next, producer Aries Keck visits robots across the country to reveal why these machines aren’t always gender neutral. And finally, assistant producer Jennifer Dionisio reveals the many ways the International Space Station differs from the orbiting luxury hotel she always pictured in her head. Chemical Agent: Magic Bullet.
