    Norway has always been a nation of fishermen, not traders, farmers, or burghers: the Gulf Stream, ice-free ports and the call of the sea made physical exploration more appealing. The country had the most intrepid Vikings and polar explorers, but no scientific geniuses, no Niels Bohrs (Danish) or Alfred Nobels (Swedish). The communities were tiny, roads were poor: there was a small urban middle cla... View full abstract»

    The Department of Energy reckons that between 6 per cent and 10 per cent of electricity generated in the US is lost in transmission, so a superconducting grid looks very attractive. But the brittle nature of ceramic high-temperature superconductors means long-distance connections are impractical. View full abstract»

    THE ARGUMENTS that are usually made to support the use of clean, renewable energy sources in more `normal¿ continents apply also to Antarctica. In fact, when it comes to the coldest, windiest, highest, driest and remotest continent on Earth, the same arguments are considerably amplified. View full abstract»

    In every commodity market in the world, except electricity, storage is used to address the periodic imbalance between supply and demand. We store food, water and fuel to dampen price volatility, create efficiency in consumption, and increase reliability in delivery. Only the electricity market meets peaks in demand by overbuilding generation, transmission, and distribution assets, which then sit i... View full abstract»

    THE GRADUAL advance of the thin client has been one of IT¿s quieter revolutions, and one that tends to be cast in a subordinate role in debates around the future of Windows, Cloud Computing, and virtual desktops. Despite this it has the potential to radically reshape both the appearance and the economics of IT into the next decade. View full abstract»

    Reducing carbon emissions and cutting energy costs is driving a mini-renaissance in many areas of engineering, with new tools and technologies being developed for domestic, commercial and industrial consumers. But a clever idea can only become a great one if it has the potential to be used on a significant scale. View full abstract»

    The UK wasn¿t the first country to have a cellular network. The Japanese launched their first network on 1 December 1979, and by 1983 the US had functioning AMPS networks in some cities. In Scandinavia, the NMT system was already offering roaming. But Margaret Thatcher¿s UK government, with its emphasis on enabling competition and encouraging entrepreneurship, created a febrile atmosphere in whi... View full abstract»
