The Venus Project

• January, 2013

Wikipedia excerpt: The Venus Project is an organization started by self-educated structural engineer, industrial designer, and futurist Jacque Fresco. Fresco’s project aims to restructure society through worldwide utilization of a theoretical design that he calls a resource-based economy. Those ideas use a version of sustainable cities, energy efficiency, natural resource management and advanced automation with a global socio-economic system based on social cooperation and scientific methodology.

Vijay Kumar – Robots that fly

• December, 2012

At the General Robotics, Automation, Sensing and Perception (GRASP) Lab, at the University of Pennsylvania, flying quadrotor robots move together in eerie formation, tightening themselves into perfect battalions, even filling in the gap when one of their own drops out. You might have seen viral videos of the quads zipping around the netting-draped GRASP Lab (they juggle! they fly through a hula hoop!). Vijay Kumar headed this lab from 1998-2004; he’s now the Deputy Dean for Education in the School of Engineering and Applied Science

Can You Hack It?

• December, 2012

AKA Hackers Wanted This film explores the origin of true hackers vs. today's computer criminals by following the adventures of Adrian Lamo and other well-intentioned hackers, who found security holes and pointed them out so they might be fixed, only to eventually be arrested. Commonly thought of as computer criminals and vandals, a true hacker is an innovative thinker able to 'hack' himself out of a given problem or situation, whether it be computer related or not. Historically, hackers have accounted for mankind's greatest inventions

Tokelau islands shift to solar energy

• November, 2012

Tokelau has become the first territory able to meet all its electricity needs with solar power, officials say. The South Pacific territory – comprising the three atolls of Atafu, Nukunonu and Fakaofo – had been dependent on diesel to generate electricity. New Zealand, which administers Tokelau, funded a $7m (£4.3m) solar project. Solar grids were constructed on the three atolls, with the last completed earlier this week. “The Tokelau Renewable Energy Project is a world first. Tokelau’s three main atolls now have enough solar capacity,

World’s biggest geoengineering experiment.

• October, 2012

Controversial US businessman’s iron fertilisation off west coast of Canada contravenes two UN conventions A controversial American businessman dumped around 100 tonnes of iron sulphate into the Pacific Ocean as part of a geoengineering scheme off the west coast of Canada in July, a Guardian investigation can reveal. Lawyers, environmentalists and civil society groups are calling it a “blatant violation” of two international moratoria and the news is likely to spark outrage at a United Nations environmental summit taking place in India this week.

Quantum Teleportation Goes the Distance

• October, 2012

Record-Breaking Distance of 143 Kilometers Through Free Space An international research team including several scientists from the University of Waterloo has achieved quantum teleportation over a record-breaking distance of 143 kilometres through free space. The experiment saw the successful teleportation of quantum information — in this case, the states of light particles, or photons — between the Canary Islands of La Palma and Tenerife. The breakthrough is a crucial step toward quantum communications via satellite. Unlike the teleportation of solid objects popularized in science fiction,
