Two thousand years ago the heat of a volcano burned the contents of a library in the doomed Roman city of Herculaneum. Today, a team of researchers from the University of Kentucky, working at the UK and STFC’s x-ray synchrotron Diamond Light Source research facility, are using the light of a billion Suns to hopefully reveal the writing locked away within the ancient charred papyri.
A team of scientists working at the Central Laser Facility (CLF) have made a key breakthrough in understanding how a parasite called Toxoplasma gondii reproduces with its host. The parasite, which causes a disease called toxoplasmosis, can infect almost any warm blooded animal but must reproduce in cats, can control the behaviour of its host and is thought to infect as much as half the world’s human population.

World Space Week got off to a great start at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, with 180 primary school pupils taking part in a Space Explorers Day on 4 October.
Particle accelerators have been responsible for achieving some of the greatest scientific breakthroughs in human history - CERN’s Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland enabled scientists to discover the Higgs boson.
Recently, STFC’s Hartree Centre at Daresbury Laboratory teamed up with Siemens, Invest Northern Ireland and Ulster University in its first steps towards increasing engagement with businesses in Northern Ireland.
