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,

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,
