    The launch of China's first astronaut, Yang Liwei, on 15 October 2003 has set the cat among the pigeons in the formerly complacent roost of experienced space travellers.

The author discusses what this manned flight means for the world's space industry and the polit... View full abstract»

    The changing TV landscape, especially the move to high-definition video, is placing unprecedented demands on the technology of broadcast routers. Making television programmes is becoming increasingly complex.

    Chip making companies are belatedly preparing themselves for the widespread use of database-driven tools. A central database would do little to reduce the amount of data needed to describe a chip, but would dispense with the need to read all the data in and write it all back out again whenever a change needs to be made.

    Digital cinema offers a high-quality image, unaffected by repeated showings. So why can't you see it at your local multiplex? The explanation for this apparent impasse is a combination of technical complexity and an industry structure that's fundamentally antipathetic to investment in digital technology. A lack of common standards is another major part of the answer. Resolution has become a big is... View full abstract»
