A big group of scientists centered at CERN, the Swiss particle physics lab, was already the best in the world at making antihydrogen, the antimatter version of hydrogen.
At one resort in the Swiss Alps, for example, snow depth during the winter is now roughly 40 percent lower on average than it was in the period from 1909 to 1988.More than 60 percent of the world’s ski slopes are currently supplemented by snowmaking machines, according to industry analyst Laurent Vanat.
This year’s award goes to a Canadian physicist, James Peebles, whose theoretical work underpins the current understanding of the universe’s beginnings, and to two Swiss astronomers, Michel Mayor and Didier Queloz, who discovered the first planet orbiting a Sun-like star .
But starting in December 2020, visitors to the Swiss Alps will be able to enjoy the best of both by taking a ride on the Goldenpass Express, in a panoramic train designed by Pininfarina .The Italian design firm is best known for its work in the automotive realm, collaborating most famously with Ferrari on the F40, Testarossa, GTO, Daytona, and more.
Shulmin says Kaspersky hasn't yet been able to connect TajMahal, named for a file the spyware uses to move stolen data off a victim's machine, to any known hacker groups with the usual methods of code-matching, shared infrastructure, or familiar techniques.
“We already know that 80 percent of consumers are bringing a phone or a tablet into the bathroom to do something,” says Kohler project lead Jonathan Bradley.
Researchers at LakeDiamond, a spinoff of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, think their solution could be the dilithium crystal of roaming drones.They have developed an artificial diamond that can help a laser beam maintain its quality over much longer ranges, and say ground-based networks of these diamond-enhanced power sources could send drones flying great distances, without wasting power to haul their big batteries around.LEARN MOREThe WIRED Guide to DronesLakeDiamond CEO Pascal Gallo says the company’s lab-created diamond—a smooth, tiny rectangle placed directly in front of the laser source—can convert a low-power laser diode into a beam with consistent, parallel rays that can stretch several hundred meters.
