First sightings of solar flare phenomena


First sightings of solar flare phenomena confirm 3D models of space weather

Video of magnetic field lines “slipping reconnection” bring scientists a step closer to predicting when and where large flares will occur. 

 

Human civilisation is nowadays maintained by technology and that technology is vulnerable to space weather

Biographies in bone


 

The diet and journeys taken by those who lived in the Sahara Desert thousands of years ago are being analysed through their teeth and bones.

 

There seems to have been an astonishing degree of commercial activity – trade routes across the Sahara linked settlements that were like islands in a sea of sand

Kelvin Waves on Quantum


 

Kelvin Wave Seen on Quantum “Tornado” for First Time

 

” We weren’t surprised to see the Kelvin waves on the quantum vortex, but we were excited to see them because they had never been seen before. Seeing the Kelvin waves provided the first experimental evidence that previous theories predicting they would be launched from vortex reconnection were correct. “

ATHENA project


 

ATHENA desktop human “body” could reduce need for animal drug tests

ATHENA project team is developing four human organ constructs that are based on a significantly miniaturized platform

By developing this ‘homo minutus,’ we are stepping beyond the need for animal or Petri dish testing: There are huge benefits in developing drug and toxicity analysis systems that can mimic the response of actual human organs
