Your Engineering Inspiration for Sunday 12 July 2020


To discover how law and policy is evolving around engineering, just navigate to the relevant section using the Articles tabs, from the ENGins front page. The death of Heathrow's third runway, changes to government subsidies for onshore windfarms, the basics of US patent law for 3D printing, and the story of a computer algorithm exonerating a man sent to prison for murder comprise a handful of recent articles that reflect the interplay between engineering and society.

Very best,

An unstable massive star has suddenly vanished from view, and astronomers aren’t sure if it collapsed into a black hole or is playing peek-a-boo behind galactic dust. The star was too far away to spot on its own, but it...
As researchers worldwide work toward a potential quantum internet, a major roadblock remains: How to build a device called a quantum repeater. Advances in quantum information science have brought on the possibility of a quantum internet—networks that carry information via...
In a world’s first, researchers in France and the U.S. have performed a pioneering experiment demonstrating “hybrid” quantum networking. The approach, which unites two distinct methods of encoding information in particles of light called photons, could eventually allow for more...
Anytime astronomers figure out a new way of looking for magnetic fields in ever more remote regions of the cosmos, inexplicably, they find them. These force fields — the same entities that emanate from fridge magnets — surround Earth, the...
