Scientists have developed a material so dark that when you look at it, it's like staring into a black hole. The material, made of carbon nanotubes, is another step in the scientific quest which began in the 1990s to create the blackest of blacks. However don't expect Vantablack, as it's known, to appear on a catwalk near you. Quality validation date: 2014-07-17 [read more]

While cloud computing is indeed a revolution in the way we use our computers, the main players in this growing market are still struggling to captivate and build trust among businesses and everyday citizens. Cloud-sceptics are concerned over data security and legal exposure but, more importantly, a lack of understanding and information is what really holds them back. The FP7-funded CLOUDCATALYST project aims to tackle this issue by providing useful tools to foster the adoption of cloud computing in Europe and to boost the European Cloud Computing market.
