Unfortunately the tubes may suffer from the very low temperatures at high altitudes, and send wrong data to the captain — that may lead to a crash in the worst case scenario. Australian engineers offer a brand new technology to calculate the plane speed: two lasers beams are emitted in opposite direction, the difference in frequency gives the speed, thanks to the Doppler effect.

`there's a time for work and a time for play' never find the time for play?
