Scientists and engineers in the UK are working to use ideas from advanced space technology to improve the lives of farmers and reduce food waste in developing countries.
Due to a warmer climate and a lack of technology, expertise and infrastructure, up to 40% of food in developing countries can be wasted, with much of this waste being fresh produce.
An international collaboration of scientists and engineers, including many from the UK, have submitted its Conceptual Design Report (CDR) for the Future Circular Collider (FCC).
UK scientists, as part of an international team, have helped to design and build a prototype particle detector that aims to unlock some of the mysteries surrounding rare cosmic rays that enter Earth’s atmosphere from deep space.
A number of STFC-supported researchers have been honoured for significant achievements in astronomy and geophysics by the Royal Astronomical Society (RAS) in its annual awards.
A team of UK scientists are applying technology developed for space research to help tackle the amount of ammonia that the farming industry releases into the atmosphere and try to make farming more efficient
UK organisations holding grants from Horizon 2020, the European Union’s flagship programme for research and innovation, need to submit information about them into a UKRI portal designed to capture basic details about the grants.
For the first time, astronomers have direct evidence of white dwarf stars solidifying into crystals – fifty years after the discovery was first predicted.
Astrophysicists have discovered an enormous bubble currently being ‘blown’ by the regular eruptions from a star in a nearby galaxy – and studying this phenomenon could help scientists to better understand how the universe expands.
STFC is about to harness the power of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to more efficiently sort through the swathes of experimental data produced at its national multidisciplinary science facilities with the aim of making quicker scientific breakthroughs.
A nearby galaxy is headed on a collision course with the Milky Way, scientists have warned, which could cause Earth’s solar system to be shunted out of its galaxy into the depths of space.
