September 1991
New Scientist;9/21/91, Vol. 131 Issue 1787, p56
The article presents news briefs related to the field of scientific research as of September 21, 1991. Bob Reid, boss of British Rail, recently rebuffed criticism of Britain's railway system by quoting the tiny percentage of complaining customers. Thomson Consumer Electronics's Research Laboratories in Strasbourg are to be found in the new Parc d'Innovation just outside town. These are the labs where Thomson does all its work on scrambling video and TV signals. The scrambling system relies for security on computer codes.
