The last bean



Late February illustration for Michael's monthly physics fact: Scientists have worked out how to levitate using lasers. Maybe in a couple of decades people will commute to work and various educational institutions on lasers, some kids will mess about in a suspension of gravity, some commuters will be annoyed at hold-ups and business men will still read newspapers. There will be umbrellas at 20ΓΈ and additional baggage carriers at ∆ 2 extra charge.
