Welcome to this week’s Reading List, your Sunday guide to some of the most interesting science and technology stories on the internet this week. This week, we’ll examine the response to the Ebola Outbreak, climate change, transportation and nuclear bombs.

  • During the height of the Ebola crisis, medical professionals were subjected to mandatory quarantines upon returning to the United States. That was a counterproductive measure that hurt recovery efforts. [New York Times]
  • We know that the earth is warming up, but our records only go back so far. the New Bedford Whaling Museum is looking through old ship records to get an idea of how the climate looked in previous centuries. [South Coast Today]
  • In the two years since Elon Musk proposed the idea of the Hyperloop, the plans for the project have begun to explode as companies race to figure out how to develop it. [Wall Street Journal]
  • We no longer detonate nuclear warheads in our atmosphere, so physicists are now looking through the millions of hours of recordings of explosions for new data. [Wired]
