A SCIENTIST DISCOVERS AN ENTIRELY NEW WAY OF GENERATING ELECTRICITY. Interesting story of how a long-known "problem" becomes a benefit when the right mind looks at it . The new method is useless at the moment ("pathetic," even in the eyes of its inventor). But promising as a means of powering small devices.
On a considerably less cheery note, other scientists have just made a "quantum leap" in military weaponry. They've brought the old SF standby, the solid-state battle laser, to life. Somehow, I doubt it'll make the world a better place.
