This Halloween, prepare for something really, really dark.
One of the most important scientists of the 20th century, Rosalind Franklin helped us to better understand the stuff life is made of: DNA.
Lithium – modern technology depends on it, from batteries for mobile phones, to powering electric cars, and even treating bipolar disorder. It was one of the three elements to be produced in large quantities during the Big Bang, but 13.8 billion years later, questions about how this intriguing element came into existence still remain.
Two start-ups from the European Space Agency's Business Incubation Centre at Harwell (ESA BIC Harwell) have recently been working with Transport for London and Nitrous to keep London moving and reduce pollution in the capital.
Professor Simon Morris--Head of the Physics Department at Durham University, member of the European Southern Observatory (ESO) Council, and one of the UK's ELT project leaders--explains why astronomy is an international business.
Professor Niranjan Thatte, lead investigator for the Extremely Large Telescope's HARMONI instrument, talks about how it feels to be part of this ground-breaking project.
A step change in precision for particle accelerators and light sources worldwide is one step nearer, thanks to pioneering start up, D-Beam – the newest member of the STFC CERN Business Incubation Centre (STFC CERN BIC).
On the top of a mountain in Chile, construction of the largest visible and infrared telescope ever built – the Extremely Large Telescope, or ELT – is underway. When the telescope is operational, its 39-metre primary mirror will gather 217 times more light than the Hubble Telescope.
Move over R2D2 – robots are no longer just the stuff of sci-fi. They're already here, and whether it's through advancing drug design or charting the oceans, UK technology is transforming the impact that robots are having on our lives.
During her time as one of Canada's foremost aeronautical engineers, Elsie MacGill was a real high flyer.
