Another bit of Star Trek comes true

The New Scientist is reporting (here) that some clever person in the States has just developed a working cloaking device. Admittedly it only works in the microwave part of the spectrum, and only at one specific frequency, and only in two dimensions (so you would still ‘see’ a distorted shadow of the object), but it’s a start. Doubtless the US military will now be watching the research with great interest.
