Technology update 30 November 2009 15 159
This time Technology Update joins the jet set, bringing you a look at Moscow’s newest international airport, Sheremetyevo: state-of-the-art security, catering for the mile high club and what happens when it all goes wrong at 30,000 feet. We also attach a camera to our suitcase to track its journey from the check-in desk to the airplane through the labyrinth of security systems, so you can see the side of the airport you don't normally see.
It's October and that means one thing in Moscow, it's time for Open Innovations. Join us as we explore one of the highlights of the tech calendar. We also learn how one man's waste really is another man's treasure with a machine that not only destroys waste cleanly, but actually produces green energy from it. A promising new cancer treatment is based on biology not chemistry and high-tech specs promise to make navigation easier and safer for the blind and visually impaired.
On this episode's aviation special, the Tech Up team finds out what's up in the world of aviation at the MAKS airshow. Breakthroughs on a molecular level give Russia's fifth generation stealth fighter huge advantages in the air. A cross between a battery and combustion engine takes aircraft to new heights and a master of illusion evens the odds down on the ground.
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.
In this Technology Update installment; the latest supercomputers need a whole new kind of cooling system, computer memory goes nano and advanced microelectronic technology shapes the next generation of satellite systems.
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.
The Russian Health Care Week exhibition shows off some of the latest developments in medical research, while the Bakulev Centre for Cardiovascular Surgery announces that it has successfully implanted a patient with a newly-designed heart valve, Dental Photonics offers innovative dental surgery, and Moscow State University pioneers mitochondrial research with the hopes of stalling the aging process.
In this episode, we learn how airport security technology can be used to put a smile on a girl's face. A radical new drilling machine makes short work of solid granite, opening up new possibilities for oil companies. A design classic still has room for improvement and we learn how to dispose of tyres and improve roads in one fell swoop.
In this episode, we look at the anatomy of the ambitious Sochi Olympics. How did the subtropical resort prepare itself to host the international winter games? We will explore in detail what was done to make the event possible: from the ideas behind the torch design, to the construction of the Olympic Park and solving the problems of accessibility and energy supply. Finally, we'll discover how xenon can be used to help athletes achieve better results.
The festive season's over so it's time to focus and hit the road. On this month's show, join us for our mad tea party complete with cool tunes as we learn about the next industrial revolution and its potentially life saving technology.
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.
For a broad view of the latest discoveries of Russia’s scientific nerve center, Novosibirsk, we take a stroll in its techno-park and meet the masterminds behind its technological breakthroughs in nuclear physics, air purifying technology and computer games industry.
