Technology update 12 January 2016 4 97
We have a blast with company Streamer, the Be-200 reaches new heights in the record books and Peter Scott falls off a massive wheel.
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.
In this edition of Technology Update we take a look at Russia's most sophisticated bridges: one of the newest and the boldest landmarks on the Moscow's skyline, Russia's first man-made bobsleigh run, and the construction of the biggest cable-stayed bridge in the world.
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.
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.
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.
On this month's show, the line between virtual and reality becomes even more blurred and Russia and America join forces to fight cancer. We take the Shaman out for a spin and Peter Scott becomes the cool kid in the class.
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.
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.
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.
