Technology update 12 January 2016 3 131
In this month's special edition of Technology Update, we travel to Hamburg to learn about a European scientific mega-project to build the most powerful X-ray machine on the planet. Just as digital cameras revolutionized photography, the European XFEL will push back the boundaries of human knowledge to help us see the atomic universe in more detail and clarity than ever before.
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.
Get your skates on and tune into Technology update as we check out some of the cool tech used in Europe's largest ice rink. If you thought that 3D films were popular, wait until you see the 360-degree cinema. We also learn how to put an organ on a chip, a robot in a telescope and a mammoth in your hand.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
