Last week we inspired over 400 families with STFC’s computing science.
Are plastics the destroyer or saviour of our planet? Could we ban plastics completely? These are just a couple of the questions that will be explored by internationally acknowledged Professor Averil MacDonald OBE, in an exciting one-off public lecture at the Pyramid and Parr Hall in Warrington, 15 November 2018, 7-8pm.
A team of researchers from the University of Oxford are hoping that the STFC’s ISIS facility will help them solve a local mystery – why a set of busts that stood outside of the Sheldonian Theatre in Oxford crumbled beyond recognition within a few short decades when their predecessors endured for two centuries. Did the mason simply use inferior quality stone, or was some 19th century student skulduggery to blame?
A new ground receiving station at the Cuban Meteorological Institute (INSMET) was put through its paces by a tremendous natural force. eOsphere, based in the Harwell Campus Space Cluster, developed this new satellite technology to strengthen early warning flooding systems by forecasting and monitoring extreme weather events. eOsphere satellite ground receiving stations have been installed worldwide, helping countries to become more resilient to natural disasters.
The first intake of apprentices will be welcomed to the new Oxfordshire Advanced Skills (OAS) training centre at Culham Science Centre in September 2019. Construction on the new training centre is already underway.
In a new study, published in Nature Communications, researchers using the Central Laser Facility’s OCTOPUS imaging cluster have identified new structures on the surface of cells that could lead to the development of new cancer drugs.
A space tech start-up company from the ESA BIC UK is using space technology to help farmers keep their chickens healthy.
Three, two, one… lift off! The out-of-this world National Satellite Test Facility (NSTF) art competition is now open, asking 5-11 year olds to use their imagination to draw a picture inspired by one of the following questions: What does a satellite look like? Where would you build a satellite? And who builds a satellite?
This Halloween, get ready to visit the dark side – but there is no need to be afraid, as it is actually a global celebration of science.
A space tech start-up company from the ESA BIC UK has joined The Ocean Cleanup in its mission to rid the world’s oceans of plastics and litter.
