One day, we might be able to access the Internet through a ceiling light. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute in Berlin have developed a new optical wireless technology that doesn't need a traditional radio-based router. Instead, the digital data is transmitted via light. The researchers developed a special modulator to regulate the LED light source, and a photodiode captures the light on the laptop. The new technology is especially promising for settings where radio wireless is undesirable, or where it can't reach - including places like offices, hospitals and aircraft cabins. Another benefit is security. Because every wall or opaque surface acts as a firewall, optical wireless technology is almost impossible to wiretap.

The Upper Middle Rhine valley in Germany has been popular with tourists since the beginning of the 19th century, with the arrival of the first steamships. Hundreds of thousands of visitors flock to the region every year to view the some 40 hilltop castles and fortresses in this region, which was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Steve Polasky briefly reviews major sources of uncertainty and how incorporation of uncertainty alters the choice of optimal climate change policy. He discusses current debates on how best to frame climate change policy in light of uncertainty; whether it should be framed as setting limits on GHG concentrations to avoid potentially catastrophic damages or as an application of benefit-cost analysis.

People with a large number of moles have an increased risk of skin cancer. London skin researcher Veronique Bataille wanted to find out why, and she made a remarkable discovery. People who have lots of moles have a very particular type of skin; it ages more slowly, is less sensitive to sunlight and it doesn't develop wrinkles as easily. Bataille discovered the cause in the subject's cells. The chromosomes carrying the genetic information looked unusually young under the microscope, as can be seen in length of the chromosome ends - the telomeres - which normally become shorter as cells ages. So, the conclusion for anyone with moles: they'll keep you young, but will unfortunately increase your risk of skin cancer.

Charles Godfray is a population biologist who has broad interests in science and the interplay of science and policy. His research involves experimental and theoretical studies in population and community ecology, epidemiology, and evolutionary biology. He is interested in food security and how the global food system will need to change and adapt to challenges, including climate change. He has a particular interest in the concept of "sustainable intensification" and the relationships among food production, ecosystem services, and biodiversity. Dr. Godfray chaired the Lead Expert Group of the UK Government Office of Science's Foresight project on the Future of Food and Farming. He is a Fellow of the UK Royal Society, and as Hope Professor, he directs the Oxford Martin Programme on the Future of Food.

Although some still argue about the causes, climatologists now widely agree that global warming is a fact. And 2014 was the warmest year recorded since such studies began 130 years ago. Researchers from the Alfred Wegener Institute in Bremerhaven are studying the effects climate change is having on the world's largest ice cap at the South Pole. Even though the region is widely considered to be stable in terms of climate, they've discovered some sobering evidence that this impression could be wrong. Tomorrow Today takes you to the planet's most hostile yet vital environment.
