Probably like many, I vaguely remember the launch of the Rosetta mission some ten years ago with its goal to land a probe on a comet. Certainly I was interested at the time, but I must admit that in the intervening decade I've really not thought about it very much at all. But suddenly the eyes of (more...)

In the last couple of years at the cinema, I've seen remakes of Total Recall, Godzilla, Carrie and The Day The Earth Stood Still, not to mention reboots of Spiderman and Superman - all of which I'd argue were totally unnecessary. Now they've brought the remake syndrome to (more...)

The bright sparks at Google have coined a phrase for their particular brand of innovation: they call it Ten-X thinking.

Does anyone else remember the 1970s science fiction TV series Space 1999? It told the tale of Moonbase Alpha and how, after a nuclear explosion, the moon was flung out of orbit, with the Alphans sent careening off through the solar system and beyond.

I've just booked a Christmas ride for the kids aboard the Santa Special at our local steam railway.

It's not easy to comfort a twelve year old who's crying her (more...)

To my surprise, I've become a bit of a fan of the US Sherlock Holmes drama 'Elementary'. It took a little while to get used to the idea of it being set in modern day New York rather than old London Town, and that sidekick John Watson was now Joan Watson, but with its intelligent storylines, sharp (more...)

Work to exploit tidal and wave power as part of the renewable energy mix is gathering momentum, with the UK rapidly becoming a knowledge hub.
