John Coxon, a space plasma physicist at the University of Southampton, spends most of his day thinking about how the Sun and the Earth’s magnetic fields interact.
The Science and Technology Facilities Council’s (STFC) UK Astronomy Technology Centre (UK ATC) in Edinburgh welcomes Namhla Mabombo.
Software engineers from across Europe are working together to improve the speed and accuracy of science results from particle accelerators.
Secondary school students explored engineering at ISIS Neutron and Muon Source (ISIS), taking in activities, tours and a ‘Fizz Bang Zap’ show, giving a flavour of real-world engineering at ISIS.
Swansea University has pioneered a new way to connect with the community through science. Oriel Science takes the University’s research and packages it into interactive and thought-provoking exhibits to increase the public’s awareness and interest in science.
A team of scientists from the University of Oxford and the Central Laser Facility (CLF), has used high-power lasers to recreate the sort of supersonic turbulence found in star-forming nebulae.
Through photosynthesis, plants are brilliant at converting the Sun’s energy into fuel – humans, not so much. A collaboration between Newcastle University and Sorbonne Université is aiming to rectify this by creating fuel through artificial photosynthesis.
The subterranean world of the Boulby Underground Laboratory is a place of extremes rarely captured by an artist’s sketch. Last month, two artists spent a week in Boulby’s dark tunnels to investigate how art is made and used in conditions deep underground.
School students celebrated six months of work on real engineering projects as part of the Engineering Education Scheme (EES) at the Science and Technology Facilities Council’s (STFC) Rutherford Appleton Laboratory this week.
A team of scientists from Oxford, Liverpool, Maryland and the Central Laser Facility (CLF) have used the Astra Laser to develop an innovative way to keep laser beams focused over long distances.
