A retinal implant - or bionic eye - which is powered by light has been invented by scientists at Stanford University in California. Implants currently used in patients need to be powered by a battery. The new device, described in the journal Nature Photonics, uses a special pair of glasses to beam near infrared light into the eye. This powers the implant and sends the information which could help a patient see.

An enormous hurricane raging at Saturns north pole has an eye 2,000km (1,250mi) across - big enough to cover the UK 12 times over. The striking images of the storm were snapped from a height of 420.000km (260,000mi) by the Cassini spacecraft, which arrived at Saturn in 2004. They were captured in red and infrared wavelengths and have been false-coloured to show detail. Scientists say the hurricanes winds reach a staggering 150m/s (330mph). But they do not know just how long the sto
