RadioLab - Bit Flip
(Copied below sans embedded hyperlinks/images.)
May 9, 2019
Back in 2003, Belgium was holding a national election. One of their first where the votes would be cast and counted on computers. Thousands of hours of preparation went into making it unhackable. And when the day of the vote came, everything seemed to have gone well. That was, until a cosmic chain of events caused a single bit to flip and called the outcome into question.

Today on Radiolab, we travel from a voting booth in Brussels to the driver's seat of a runaway car in the Carolinas, exploring the massive effects tiny bits of stardust can have on us unwitting humans.

This episode was reported and produced by Simon Adler and Annie McEwen.

Video: Quite a well-made video.
(The audio track in the video is all/mostly quite good music and worth downloading in its own right, IMHO.   :Thmbsup:  )
