The article presents developments related to engineering and technology. Robot builders, rail engineers and rocket scientists are queuing up outside "FameLab" auditions in Great Britain this month, hoping to make it into the final this summer. In another development, authorities in Switzerland are planning to wrap part of the Gurschen glacier in Andermatt in hi-tech foil in a test to stop it melting.
