Technology update 26 May 2011 8 120
HeliRussia showcases the world's best. The Mi-38 finally arrives to master the mid-size market, with "glass cockpit" avionics and a take-your-pick menu of new Canadian and Russian engines. Gyroscope-based Inertial Navigation Systems keeps aviation on an even keel. Old school radar air-traffic systems go digital. And the lightweight Ansat is the helicopter jack-of-all-trades.
In this episode, we learn about the technology keeping the Moscow Metro rolling, new modelling and surveying techniques make waves in the oil industry and a dream team of robots go places too dangerous for humans. Tune in for all the latest news and innovations here on Technology Update.
Russia celebrated Cosmonauts' Day on 12 April in honour of Yury Gagarin's historic flight in space, so we wanted to get into the spirit of things and see what's changed since then. On this month's cosmic special, Russia's latest space capsule promises to make spaceflight more comfortable than ever. We learn how solar wind helps us tune into our favourite show on the old wireless and a ray gun represents the latest in cutting-edge technology.
This episode of Technology Update is dedicated to innovations in medicine: from laser scalpels to a search for the ‘fountain of youth’. You will learn about the evolution of artificial heart valves and the latest developments in this area; discover how state of the art lasers help dentists in their work and find out about what advances have been made in the field of extending human life and youth.
Distant space travel is a dream that requires never-ending research, incredible technology, and an imagination to match. But at top Russian institutes, that dream is inching closer to reality. Beyond orbit – on Technology Update.
On this month's show, we turn up the heat with Moscow's firefighters as they put their latest gear to the test. An electronic glove may mean one less language barrier for us all. An unlikely material helps buildings survive the bumping and grinding of tectonic plates not to mention the trials of time. And despite the robot invasion, we still find the time to indulge in some of Moscow's more cultural pursuits.
This month, we get 2015 off to a flying start! Join us as Russia's next gen heavy-class launcher takes to the skies for the first time. We really push the boat out and visit the world's longest pool and play with models and we check out a future where talking to robots is perfectly natural.
In this episode of Technology Update, a new tractor transmission makes for a smoother ride, Russian scientists conjure up cutting-edge crystals, the EU sets its laser sights on Japan and one of the tech giants comes to town.
This month, we make the most of the sun with Ryazan's solar regatta team. Russia's trams and metro get a facelift in Ekaterinburg. Science flourishes in Tomsk as a versatile new compound promises to make life on the farm a little easier and a new app from IT company Parallels combines the power of a desktop with the portability of a smartphone.
