Since 2004, more than 10 million books from libraries all over Europe and the U.S. have been scanned into Google's electronic index, to be accessed by anyone in the world with an internet connection. Specialists can see patients more easily thanks to long-distance medical exams conducted via satellite links with remote-controlled scanners. Researchers from Australia's James Cook University have discovered a type of algae that soaks up carbon dioxide at a rate the makes carbon emissions experts keen to invest. Synchrotron, a sophisticated new particle accelerator, allows scientists to prove the chemistry of behind diseases such as multiple sclerosis, in order to find a cure. Finally, a visit to the Museum of Computing in the U.K. offers a look back at the history of computers since the mid-20th century.
