You’ve likely heard that cannabis is the safest of all recreational drugs—safer, in fact, than even alcohol. However, there’s one drug that beats cannabis for safety, according to the 2017 Global Drug Survey. Hallucinogenic mushrooms, also known as psilocybin or psychedelic mushrooms, were found to be the safest of all substances based on the number of people needing emergency medical treatment after taking it.

Perhaps the biggest revelation of the study, though, is the ranking of alcohol as a dangerous drug. The substance ranked only above synthetic cannabis and methamphetamine in danger levels. Behind magic mushrooms and cannabis as the least dangerous were LSD, cocaine, amphetamines, and MDMA/ecstasy.

If the Earth survives until the year one million, what will it look like? The National Geographic Channel is currently tackling that question with a new series called Year Million, which illustrates how the planet will look in the faraway future.

The series, which premiered May 15th, explored how artificial intelligence will possibly surpass human intelligence, how disease treatment will help humans live longer, virtual reality, the internet, and more. Actor Laurence Fishburne narrates the series, which features some of the best minds in science today, including Brian Green, Ray Kurzweil, and Michio Kaku.

If you’ve ever wanted to own your own rocks or dust from the surface of the Moon, your opportunity may be just around the corner. A Florida company called Moon Express is preparing a mining expedition, where they’ll gather material from its surface to sell on Earth.

The spacecraft is scheduled for a 2020 launch, at which point it will become the first mining expedition by a private company. As soon as the craft lands on Earth, Moon Express will put the collected materials up for sale to the highest bidders.
