The University of Leicester is spearheading the development of new power generation technologies for space exploration as part of a European Space Agency funded programme.
Cyberattacks may become impossible with the creation of the first practical quantum random number generator.
Abrupt changes of wind power generation output are a source of severe damage to power systems. Researchers at Kyoto University developed a stochastic modeling method that enables to evaluate the impact of such phenomena. ...
'Jurassic park' made a dinosaur-sized leap forward in computer-generated animation on screen, 25 years ago
With 25 years of hindsight, Jurassic Park marks a pivotal point in the history of visual effects in film. It came 11 years after 1982's Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan debuted computer-generated imagery for a visual effect ...
