Archaeology, 02-2011

Celtic Cuboid

Sometimes it takes a truck-mounted crane to raise the dead. Instead of excavating the burial chamber of a Celtic leader on site, archaeologists decided to cut the whole thing out of the ground, raise the 80-ton block of earth onto a flatbed truck and carry it to the lab.

Challenging Depths

Some records can’t be broken. In 1960, Jacques Piccard went down 11,000 metres to the deepest point of the ocean. It was a one-stop visit and no-one has ever gone back – until now.

We live in the digital age. The computers we share our lives with don’t handle analogue information very well. For them to understand data like a voltage reading or a mouse position it has to be transformed into the binary system.

History, 02-2011

A Girl, a Car and the Globe

Who was the first one to circumnavigate the world in a car? The answer should be common knowledge for us engineers, but strangely enough it has fallen into oblivion. The year was 1927, the car an Adler Standard 6, and the driver a young woman: Clärenore Stinnes.

The Rule of One

Amid the swirling chaos of our world an almost perfect pattern surrounds us. It connects random events and phenomena – from the large to the small, and the monumental to the inconsequential. It can be seen in the spluttering spins of dying stars and the numbers in our electricity bills.
