Back to the black stuff?

Since 2007 something has been stirring or rather revolving. Vinyl sales having been on the brink of extinction have been steadily climbing. The last time they were this high was 1991 when Simply Red’s Stars was number one in the charts. Vinyl sales still only account...

Obama’s supercomputer order gets a step closer

Back in July 2015, Obama put executive orders out for the USA to build the world's fastest supercomputer by 2025, this order created the National Strategic Computing Initiative. The current fastest supercomputer resides in China and is called Tianhe-2 and is in...

End of the big dream?

It was conceived on a fishing trip between the CEOs of PAN AM and Boeing. When finally created in 1969 it was the biggest airliner in the world, first wide bodied and 'two tier' passenger aircraft and it ushered in a new age of travel. Nick named the 'Jumbo Jet' and...

Return of the comet

It took McLaren 15 years to replace the F1 with the P1, Bugatti though will be delivering the successor to the Veyron, just 15 months after the last one will be delivered. When the Veyron was unleashed, the worldwide interest was immense, arguable it was the first in...

    Today, most of the water on Mars is locked away in frozen ice caps. But billions of years ago it flowed freely across the surface, forming rushing rivers that emptied into craters, forming lakes and seas. New research has found evidence that sometimes the lakes would take on so much water that they […]

    How can a doctor predict the treatment outcome of an individual patient? Traditionally, the effectiveness of medical treatments is studied by randomized trials, but is this really the only reliable way to evaluate treatment effectiveness, or could something be done differently? How can the […]

    Scientists have found evidence that when projectiles hit soft clumps of dust or hard clumps of loose glass beads, the scaling laws for energy dissipation and energy transfer are the same in each case. This helps us understand how granular clumps stick together, and how planets are formed. […]

Header Banner: Speed is the name of the game. The DarkDrug logo shows an Intel Xeon microchip die. Xeon is a brand of x86 microprocessors designed, manufactured, and marketed by Intel, targeted at the non-consumer workstation, server, and embedded system markets. It was introduced in June 1998. The advent ofoptical fibre cable has allowed the speed of data transmission to reach dizzy heights (shown in the DarkDrug logo). The field of applied science and engineering concerned with the design and application of optical fibers is known as fibre optics. The term was coined by Indian physicist Narinder Singh Kapany, who is widely acknowledged as the father of fibre optics.
