A team of physicists, working at STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, have built a ‘particle accelerator simulator’ that, instead of being many miles in diameter, can fit on a desktop.
24 UK companies were at CERN last week with STFC and the Department of International Trade hoping to win contracts to supply goods and services to the world’s largest lab.
Start-up companies at the ESA Business Incubation Centre UK (ESA BIC UK) now have free access to tools and services that will enable them to quickly and affordably test their new technologies in space, thanks to an exciting new collaboration with Open Cosmos.
Last week, we inspired future engineers with a day of engineering activities in support of the government’s 'Year of Engineering’ campaign.
With nearly 20% of the world’s population, but less than 10% of its farmland, China faces enormous challenges to feed its growing population, reduce the environmental footprint of its agricultural sector and meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
NASA’s Mars Insight lander is set to touch down on Mars in a mission study the heart of the Red Planet and be the first to measure ‘Marsquakes’.
It’s not every day a student gets to judge a scientist, but that’s exactly what happened when STFC scientists took part in this year’s ‘I’m a Scientist – Get me out of here!’ competition.
A team from Portugal have used ISIS Neutron and Muon Source to analyse bone that has been treated for use in medical grafts in the hope it will lead to more effective and safer bone implants in the future.
Researchers at the University of Bristol are using neutrons to investigate the properties of chemicals used in fire-fighting foams in a bid to make them more efficient and environmentally friendly.
Some may think science is only for the super smart, but in reality, science impacts everyone, everywhere. World Science Day for Peace and Development aims to highlight the importance of science in our daily lives.
