The Turing biopic, The Imitation Game, is based on the classic biography 'Alan Turing: the Enigma'. We talk to its author Andrew Hodges, fellow and tutor in mathematics at Wadham College, University of Oxford.
Alan Turing's ideas on morphogenesis are helping scientists to develop ways to make complex materials build themselves.
Only one country has so far managed to land objects on Mars successfully - the USA. Not wanting to get left behind, Europe is building its own rover - the ExoMars. Its three prototypes are currently roaming a mock section of Mars built at Airbus's facilities in Stevenage, UK.
