A tennis court-sized telescope orbiting far beyond Earth's moon, Webb will detect infrared radiation and be capable of seeing in that wavelength as well as Hubble sees in visible light. Infrared vision is vital to our understanding of the universe. The furthest objects we can detect are seen in infrared light, cooler objects that would otherwise be invisible emit infrared, and infrared light pierces clouds of dust, allowing us to see into their depths. Webb will unleash a torrent of new discoveries, opening the door to a part of the universe that has just begun to take shape under humanity's observations.

Going under the innocuous name of ‘Sesame Credit,’ China has created a score for how good a citizen you are. Instead of measuring how regularly you pay your bills, it measures how obediently you follow the party line. In the works for years, China’s ‘social credit system’ aims to create a docile, compliant citizenry who are fiscally and morally responsible by employing a game-like format to create self-imposed, group social control. In other words, China gamified peer pressure to control its citizenry; and, though the scheme hasn’t been fully implemented yet, it’s already working — insidiously well.

As a result of the Fukushima, Chancellor Angela Merkel pledged to switch off all nuclear power by 2022 and fill the gap with renewables – a process known as the energiewende (energy transition). Germany’s push for renewables grew out of the anti-nuclear protests of the 1980s and currently more than a quarter (26%) of its electricity comes from wind, solar and other renewable sources, such as biomass, although 44% is from coal. The country’s government wants to increase the share of renewables in electricity to 40% to 45% by 2025.

MEPs push through legislation to cut fees for use of mobiles while travelling in EU, with holidaymakers able to call, text and surf at UK rates from mid-2017. Members of the European parliament have voted through new rules that will scrap mobile roaming charges and stop holidaymakers returning home to the nightmare of a massive phone bill racked up on their travels.

By 2040, cabs will be driven by Google robots, shops will become showrooms for online outlets and call centres will be staffed by intelligent droids. The competition for work caused by a rise in the robots population will see us heading to surgeons for ‘additional processing power for our brains’. We may also be requesting bionic implants for our hands that will make us able to perform tasks as fast as any machine. Futurologists, commissioned by global job search website xpatjobs.com, say "Those who take these risks and innovate with their own bodies will be the biggest earners in such decades".

The company believes that it would be more efficient to launch spaceships from the stratosphere because of the decreased fuel consumption involved. The researchers propose using a platform on top of the space lift as a launching pad, which could cut the cost of space flight by around one third. “Astronauts would ascend to 12 miles by electrical elevator, From the top of the tower, space planes will launch in a single stage to orbit, returning to the top of the tower for refueling and reflight,” The scientists say the elevator could also be used for scientific research, space tourism, communications, and wind-energy generation.

"In the 21st century we will find out about life at a galactic scale," Milner said. "To understand the universe, you must know about atoms, about the forces that bind them, the contours of space and time, the birth and death of stars, the dance of galaxies, the secrets of black holes, but that is not enough," Hawking said. He added that the search must answer what he calls the biggest question, the existence of intelligent extraterrestrial life.

According to its developers, an aircraft powered by the SABRE (Synergetic Air-Breathing Rocket Engine) engine such as the super palne Skylon will be able to go from standstill to reaching speeds of over 5 times the speed of sound while still in Earth’s atmosphere. The engine then transitions to a rocket mode, hitting spaceflight speeds at orbital velocity, as fast as 25 times the speed of sound. One of the pivotal innovations of the system is in cooling. It uses ultra-lightweight heat exchangers 100 times lighter than existing technologies that can cool extremely hot airstreams from over 1,000°C to -150°C in less than 1/100th of a second.

The pilot project – slated to begin in 2016 – is based in Rwanda, a country whose physical and social geography poses multiple challenges for prototyping the future of the projected Redline trans-continental network. This initial plan for three buildings, to be completed by 2020, will enable the network to send supplies to 44 percent of Rwanda. Subsequent phases of the project could see in excess of 40 Droneports across Rwanda, and the country’s central location could allow easier expansion to neighbouring countries such as Congo, saving many thousands more lives.

GoPro's Six-Camera Spherical Array is a mounting accessory that will accommodate six Hero4 cameras, capturing high-resolution images and video from different angles. The content can then be stitched together to create a 360-degree virtual reality environment by using Kolor, technology developed by a French virtual reality software maker that GoPro acquired last month. Enjoying the content will require users to do virtual reality headsets like Oculus, Google Cardboard, and Microsoft's HoloLens. The content can also be viewed on PCs or smartphones using YouTube 360 or Kolor's app.

The 10-fold upgrade being planned for 2020 could take man's knowledge far into the realms of what at present is pure speculation on subjects like the true nature of time and the possible existence of other universes. Taking part in preparations for what will be called the High Luminosity LHC will be Japan's KEK and the U.S. LARP network of laboratories, which include Fermilab near Chicago whose long-running Tevatron collider closed down in September.

Before 2030, Russia plans to land its first cosmonauts on the Moon, and Europe wants a piece of the action. They’re a little late for the great space race of the ’60s, but the mission is an admirable push for the re-ignited interest in manned deep-space travel. On Tuesday, at a space and technology conference in Moscow, the head of Roscosmos Energia – Russia’s version of NASA – announced: “A manned flight to the Moon and lunar landing is planned for 2029.”

Area X has been cut off from the rest of the continent for decades. The first expedition returned with reports of a pristine, Edenic landscape; the second expedition ended in mass suicide, the third expedition in a hail of gunfire as its members turned on one another. The members of the eleventh expedition returned as shadows of their former selves, and within weeks, all had died of cancer. They discover a massive topographic anomaly and life forms that surpass understanding―but it’s the surprises that came across the border with them and the secrets the expedition members are keeping from one another that change everything.

Emma Watson has made a unique choice to pick films that portray her so well. Her latest project “Beauty and the Beast” is one of the most talked about these days. Watson stated that, “beauty seems like a completion of a nice little circle”. She has indeed turned in to a graceful beauty now when we look back her first avatar of Hermione in “Harry Potter”. Her transition is from the role of a little girl to lady stepping into women hood in the newest role is commendable.

The "liquid biopsy", which costs just £15, uses a single drop of saliva to look for fragments of a genetic molecule linked to the disease. Current tests for cancer often have a two-week turnaround time, but this breakthrough means a diagnosis "can be done in a doctor's office while patients wait". In the same time dutch researchers at the VU medical centre have developed a method of detecting various forms of cancer using only a single drop of blood. The new method even works for very early stage detection, and has been tested to up to 95% accuracy for most types of cancer.

The hippocampus, a region buried deep within the folds and grooves of the brain, is the critical gatekeeper that transforms memories from short-lived to long-term. In dogged pursuit, Dr. Theodore Berger spent most of the last 35 years trying to understand how neurons in the hippocampus accomplish this complicated feat. At its heart, a memory is a series of electrical pulses that occur over time that are generated by a given number of neurons, said Berger. This is important — it suggests that we can reduce it to mathematical equations and put it into a computational framework.

Living up to the buzzword of 'E-Performance', the technological trailblazer combines outstanding driving performance with trendsetting day-to-day practicality. The four-door e-monster has a system power output of over 440 kW (600 PS). The vehicle will thus achieve both acceleration of 0 to 100 km/h in under 3.5 seconds and a range of more than 500 kilometres. Charged via an 800-volt charger unit specially developed for the car, the lithium-ion batteries have enough power again for 80 percent of the range after just 15 minutes. The vehicle can optionally be 'refuelled' wirelessly by induction via a coil set into the garage floor.
