    The Last Chance to Defeat China and Win Back the Cyber Domain?

    Over 68 countries went with Huawei for 5G deployment, despite U.S. warnings of national security risks. What does that mean? If Beijing succeeds in the strategy that it is implementing now, 10 years from now, there would be nowhere to go. The U.S. is struggling to go 5G itself, what happened? They took 85 billion dollars and they bought Time Warner… They can’t afford to go to 5G and they’re desperate that nobody else go to 5G. A wholesale open access model will break the mobile industry’s oligopoly. But is that all it takes to prevent China’s dominance in the cyber domain? It is absolutely a government decision because it’s…

The Arctic will be perhaps the single most influential region on earth in the coming century and yet almost no-one even lives there. Eight nations have territory above the Arctic Circle—Denmark though their constituent country: Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Russia, the United States, and Canada—and they are all in close quarters. This circle represents the distance a plane can fly in three hours. Most of these countries can reach each other faster than they watch Titanic. Anchorage, Alaska is, in fact, closer to Tromsø, Norway…

    China’s Crazy Plan to Launch an Artificial Moon

    Guess what? China has announced plans to launch an “artificial moon” into our skies by 2020. And, as crazy as that sounds, it’s not actually the first time something like this has been attempted. But first. China’s new plan. As reported in China Daily, China plans to launch an “illumination satellite” into orbit above the city of Chengdu. Well actually, four illumination satellites. The first as a proof of concept in 2020 and the next three as the real deal in 2022. There aren’t a ton of details about the satellites themselves yet, like how big they are or what they will be made of, but we DO know they’ll…

    World’s Future MEGAPROJECTS

    Welcome to TDC. This is our mini-documentary on the most ambitious, fascinating infrastructure Megaprojects of the near future. The rulers of the United Arab Emirates have insane amounts of money to spend. Thanks to everyone’s thirst for oil, they’ve been on a construction spree unlike any the world has ever seen for such a small country, investing in one ambitious infrastructure project after another. At one point, 24 percent of all the world’s construction cranes we in Dubai. Unfortunately, that was before the 2008-2009 global financial meltdown, which led to much of the investment in the city drying up faster than the water on somebody who just got out of…

    China’s Superintense Laser Could Create Matter From Energy

    E=mc2, energy is equal to mass times the speed of light squared. We’ve demonstrated this to dramatic effect with nuclear bombs, converting a little mass into a lot of energy, but we’ve never done it the other way around and turned energy into mass. At least we haven’t done it… yet. When you think high energy, where does your mind go? That’s right, to Trace. But after that, probably lasers. And lasers are getting extremely powerful. The current record-holding laser resides in China, at the Shanghai Superintense Ultrafast Laser Facility. In 2016 it set the bar at 5.3 million billion Watts of power, or 5.3 Petawatts. Even though that’s a…
