Housed in the historic city of Cambridge, the R&D facility of international cybersecurity firm Darktrace is unmistakably modern. Its stylish headquarters is all clean lines and gleaming glass, opening last year in honor of Cambridge-educated computer pioneer Maurice Wilkes--who helped design the electronic delay storage calculator, one of the world's first computers, in the 1940s. Cambridge has recently emerged as a thriving tech scene--its prestigious university provides a steady supply of both top graduates and academic innovation.

The United Kingdom will boost its ability to handle threats posed by Russia and China in space as part of a foreign, security and defence policy review being conducted by the government, Defence Secretary Ben Wallace has said. "This week we have been reminded of the threat Russia poses to our national security with the provocative test of a weapon-like projectile from a satellite threatening the peaceful use of space," Wallace wrote in The Sunday Telegraph newspaper, adding that China also posed a threat. "China, too, is developing offensive space weapons and both nations are upgrading their capabilities. Such behaviour only underlines the importance of the review the government is currently conducting," he added. On Thursday, the UK said it was concerned about a Russian satellite test which involved the launch of a projectile with the "characteristics of a weapon".
