Imagine a plane that has wings made out of glass; thanks to a major breakthrough in understanding the nature of glass by scientists at the University of Bristol, this has just become a possibility.

Word of the Day
  • The abrogation of a law by a higher authority; annulment.
  • In music, during the eighteenth century, a song or an instrumental piece similar to the serenade, intended for performance in the open air.
The word 'cassation' comes from the French 'cassation', from Latin 'casso' ("destroy, annul").
