CONTENTS

THE NONACOUSTIC DETECTION OF SUBMARINES  •  Tom Stefanick
The best insurance against nuclear attack is the nuclear submarine armed with ballistic missiles. Virtually undetectable, such a vessel can ride out a first strike and unleash devastation on the attacker. Are there advances in physics or new technologies that can render the oceans transparent and the deterrent vulnerable?

GRAVITY AND ANTIMATTER  •  Terry Goldman, Richard J Hughes and Michael Martin Nieto
Would an antiapple fall to the ground at the same rate as an apple? General relativity and quantum mechanics suggest a positive answer, there is a crack in the voice of apparent affirmation: the two theories have never been reconciled. Indeed, attempts to do so suggest that in sway of gravity, matter and antimatter are not the same

CATALYTIC ANTIBODIES  •  Richard a Lerner and Alfonso Tramontano
Like the proverbial matchmaker, enzymes help reactions to happen faster by bringing the reactants together under favourable circumstances. Unfortunately nature has supplied only a limited repertoire of these molecules. Now there is genuine promise that their number can be extended by antibodies designed to act as catalysts

CONSTRUCTION CRANES  •  Lawrence K Shapiro and Howard I Shapiro
They are essential tools of the building trade and can be found in a wide variety of forms wherever high-rise structures climb toward the sky. Selecting the right crane for the job is critical for reasons both of economy and of safety, and at a crowded urban site the choice can sometimes present a formidable engineering challenge

HOW THE LEOPARD GETS ITS SPOTS  •  James D Murray
An interplay between the number and variety of pigment cells in an embryo and the size of the embryo is a factor; additional factors are mathematical rules like those that govern the vibration of a violin string or the surface of a steel drum. Such resonances, interacting with size and shape, determine whether spots, stripes or other patterns form

FATNESS AND FERTILITY  •  Rose E Frisch
If its figurines are an indication, Paleolithic society favoured fullness of figure in women, as did Rubens and Renoir. there is biological sense in such a standard of beauty. A woman must store a threshold, or minimum, amount of body fat in order to be able to reproduce; gaining or losing just a few pounds can make all the difference

THE ROMAN PORT OF COSA  •  Anna Marguerite McCann
Two decades of interdisciplinary archaeology have produced a portrait of the economy, society and technology of a Mediterranean Roman port. Concrete piers, fish farming and processing, amphora manufacture and a freshwater-distribution system supported a bustling population dominated by a single entrepreneurial family, the Sestii
