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.

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.

Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde and his team of experts have created the world's largest smog vacuum cleaner. The Smog Free Tower uses patented ion technology to produce smog-free bubbles of public space, allowing people to breathe and experience clean air for free. The first 7-meter high Smog Free Tower equipped with environment-friendly technology is now open for public at Vierhavensstraat 52 in Rotterdam NL, and will travel around the world. The first Smog Free Tower cleans 30.000m3 per hour without ozon, runs on green wind energy and uses no more electricity than a waterboiler (1400 watts).

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.”

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.

If the TF-X will have a cruising speed of 322 km/h (200 mph) with an 805-km (500-mile) flight range, and will require no runway space whatsoever to take off and land. The four-passenger hybrid vehicle will include rechargeable batteries that can be changed either by its engine or by electric car charging stations. It will be small enough to drive on regular roads and fit in regular garages, and the flying part will be computer operated, so you won't have to be a pilot to drive one.

The plan calls for a new statue that’s way taller than the ancient one. At 122 metres tall, the new Helios would be nearly four times the height of the original. The proposal also includes an interior library, museum, cultural centre, exhibition hall, and, of course, a crowning lighthouse that’s visible for 56 kilometres. It’s estimated that the project can be rebuilt at a cost of 240 to 260 millions euros (US$264 to US$286 million). Funding is expected to come from cultural institutions and international crowdfunding.

Hyperloop, for those of you not yet living in the future with the rest of us, was an idea unveiled by SpaceX and Tesla CEO Musk back in 2012. It involves using vacuum-sealed tubes to move passenger pods at incredibly high speeds, up to 1,225 kilometers per hour (760 mph). This could supposedly take people from San Francisco to Los Angeles in 30 minutes. Musk simply released a design document to the public for others to develop. HTT, and the confusingly similarly named Hyperloop Technologies – both announcing they would build test tracks, in California and Nevada respectively.

As if the world's tallest building, biggest shopping mall and largest man-made island weren't enough. Dubai will soon have another record breaker: a 1.2km ski slope. It will be constructed as part of Meydan One complex, which will cover over 40 million square feet and is estimated to cost $6.8 billion to build. The project will also feature a shopping mall, the 711m tower comprising office blocks apartments and shops, a civic plaza, 4km canal and a marina with 100 yacht berths.

And a 2020 timeframe would underscore Apple's 'aggressive goals and could set the stage for a battle for customers with Tesla Motors Inc and General Motors Co.' Both of those are planning to release a sub-£26,000 ($40,000) electric car in 2017 that can travel more than 200 miles (320km) on a single charge.

Passengers and witnesses will also be able to activate eCall manually by pressing an in-car button.

The Internet is transforming so many sectors of our economy, and we are Internet TV; and that sector has grown from very small 15 years ago to starting to be significant now." Hastings anticipates that sports networks that have had such success in maintaining an audience will ultimately adopt an on-demand model. Consumers will be able to watch any game on any device in the future, just as companies such as HBO currently provide.

The supercharged process, called C4 photosynthesis, boosts plants’ growth by capturing carbon dioxide and concentrating it in specialized cells in the leaves. That allows the photosynthetic process to operate much more efficiently. It’s the reason corn and sugarcane grow so productively; if C4 rice ever comes about, it will tower over conventional rice within a few weeks of planting.
