The World’s Biggest Data Centres
Almost all of the global internet traffic invariably will find itself moving through a data centre. Data centres are massive, warehouse-like structures that are packed with servers – computers that are designed to offer data and services to the users that are connecting to them. These huge centres are what powers the world’s internet, allowing […]
What Is Genome Engineering?
When we think of ‘engineering’, what first comes to mind is the mechanical and electrical side of engineering – such as construction, electrical plants and the like. However, what people’s minds often don’t think of – when it comes to engineering – is that this practice happens as well in the medical field.
The Greatest Engineering Innovations To Come Out Of Africa
When one speaks about ‘engineering innovations’ and the continents which were responsible for developing these, Africa is not one of the continents which readily comes to mind. However, while they may not have been responsible for developing a particular technology from scratch, Africans have taken already-developed technology. They have adapted it to the needs of […]
The World’s Largest Restoration Projects
Climate change is a problem that we can no longer ignore as a whole, and we’re beginning to feel the harsh impacts of deforestation and carbon emissions, such as the latest global pandemic. And while there are countless people complaining about the world coming to an end, there are just as many that are working […]
Interesting Tech That Failed To Catch On
When major technological advancements are happening at a near breakneck speed, expectations are that the world would be rapidly pushed forward into a science fiction future. There is only one problem with that; the technology, no matter how promising, has to catch on in order to succeed.
The World’s 5 Largest Data Centres
The internet is nothing more than one massive, global network that almost every single functioning device in the world is currently a part of. But large amounts of the traffic that these devices generate needs to be stored safely, along with the countless terabytes of information that we collectively produce during any given day. This […]
The World’s Leading Carbon Capture Projects
Climate change is the biggest challenge that the human race has ever face, and it’s going to take all of our innovation and technology to avert the worst of what’s to come. One of the largest problems we’re dealing with is excess carbon in the atmosphere, more than our planet is able to successfully pull […]
The World’s Leading Supercomputers
When we look at the smartphones that we carry around with us every day, it’s incredibly easy to forget the decades of engineering that went into making them work as smoothly as they do. In fact, they are thousands of times more powerful than the computers that sent the first people to the moon, and […]
Public Transportation In The Future
At the moment, the world has something of a transportation problem. Not only are most major cities around the world clogged almost every single day, but the amount of emissions released by these massive traffic congestions is becoming more and more of a health problem. Individual cars don’t work well for large cities, as too […]
Advances In Mobile Technology
We’ve come a long way since the early days of mobile technology – giant phones that had limited reception and all they did was make phone calls. In 2020, the phone you carry around in your pocket is more powerful than the average computer of twenty years ago. It can also do a lot more […]
