COVER STORY: Preparing the next generation of GPS
Originally developed by the U.S. military, the Global Positioning System (GPS) as we now know it became operational in 1995, and has since become vital to nearly every facet of modern life, from our smartphones to the internet and the electrical grid. David Pogue was invited into the Air Force’s GPS Master Control Station at Schriever Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, Colo, and visits Lockheed Martin, where a new generation of GPS III satellites is being built.

COMMUNITY: The Cemetery Angel
When the AIDS crisis hit in the 1980s, Ruth Coker Burks – who’d inherited 262 plots in a family cemetery in Hot Springs, Arkansas – became a mother of sorts to countless sons, many abandoned by families and churches because they were suffering from what was called “the gay cancer.” Coker Burks became a one-woman AIDS help center: driving patients to appointments, trying to find doctors, drugs, or filling-out death certificates. And in many cases she gave them a final resting place. Seth Doane reports on the woman who has been called “The Cemetery Angel,” who gave – and received – so many precious gifts.

ON BROADWAY: “Jagged Little Pill”: Alanis Morrissette’s landmark album inspires a Broadway musical
Alanis Morrisette’s 1995 album, “Jagged Little Pill,” became the unexpected soundtrack of a generation of young women who’d realized they didn’t really fit into the box society was trying to put them in. It won five Grammys and sold more than 33 million copies worldwide, making it one of the most successful albums of all time. And now, 25 years later, “Jagged Little Pill” has been turned into a Broadway musical, with an original story by Oscar-winner Diablo Cody (“Juno”). Correspondent Luke Burbank talked with Cody, and with Morissette, who explains the joys of growing older, and of never shying away from confronting the big issues of life.
