Predicting when and how seismic movements will occur on the Earth is one of the great aspirations of scientists. Technologies derived from artificial intelligence such as big data analysis or deep learning are beginning to provide clues about how to achieve this: neural networks or heat maps may be the key to predicting earthquakes.
In 1945, when the whole world was still thinking in terms of war, a young radar technician from the Royal Air Force was looking up at the sky and contemplating the future. Arthur C. Clarke’s ideas about satellites were more than a decade ahead of the state of telecommunications at that time.
The challenge of overcoming distances has led engineers to develop surprising and complex solutions, which find their ultimate expression in bridges. In this review we encounter both impressive examples of recently built bridges and the innovative methods used to erect them.
In the year that marks the 50th anniversary of the arrival of man on the Moon, a new space race begins to conquer the satellite. NASA is preparing for a new manned space mission by 2024 which, however, must still overcome important obstacles such as the financing or the technology needed to make this trip possible.
