CUA’s promising new commercial aerospace technologies

Champaign-Urbana Aerospace (CUA) aims to identify, develop, and distribute promising new commercial aerospace technologies. Founded in 1998, CUA’s 10,000 sq...

Astrophysical plasma study benefits from new soft X-ray transition energies

The new standard for X-ray transition energies set for neon, carbon dioxide, and sulphur hexafluoride paves a way to achieving a high accuracy analysis of astrophysical plasmas. The analysis of astrophysical plasmas is vital in the pursuit to learning more...

The number of UK space jobs are continuing to expand

Despite global impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic, 3,000 new jobs have been created in the UK space sector in one year. According to new figures released today (13 April 2022), demonstrate that employment in the UK space sector has risen...

Developing cutting-edge software for the Square Kilometre Array Observatory

UK institutions have been granted £15m to develop the ‘brain’ of the Square Kilometre Array Observatory, which is the biggest radio telescope in the world. The Square Kilometre Array Observatory (SKAO) is positioned to investigate the evolution of the early...

Astronomers have observed the most distant galaxy candidate yet

At 13.5 billion light-years from Earth, astronomers have discovered the most distant galaxy candidate yet. At a staggering distance of 13.5 billion light-years from Earth, the galaxy candidate, known as HD1, may be the farthest astronomical object ever perceived by...

Baby universes could present as primordial black holes

The Kavli Institute believe that primordial black holes, which formed in the early Universe, could be hidden ‘baby universes’.

Closely analysing Jupiter’s origin

A research team from University of Zurich (UZH) and the National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) has utilised computer modelling systems to analyse and dissect Jupiter’s origin. One of the most important questions that remains largely unanswered within the...

Mars’ climate history to determine potential habitability

A collaborative research team, led by Purdue University, has discovered that mounts of ice in craters provide a new insight into Mars’ climate history. Newly discovered deposits of layered ice in craters scattered around Mars’ Southern hemisphere indicate that the...

Studying the dynamics of stars in the Large Magellanic Cloud

Scientists at the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP) have utilised data from the VISTA survey to study the dynamics of stars in the Large Magellanic Cloud. Using a technique of repeated imaging observations to build a velocity map of...

Simultaneous measurements of low-energy solar neutrinos made possible

Scientists working on the Borexino neutrino detector in Italy have shown that simultaneous measurements of low-energy solar neutrinos are possible. Physicists measuring the properties of solar neutrinos have had to make a compromise – either measure the particles’ energy with...

Simulations of the early Universe revealed by astronomers

The Harvard-Smithsonian Centre for Astrophysics has revealed a simulation of the early Universe, which is described to look like fireflies flickering in the darkness. The simulation recreates the early Universe, a time after the Big Bang when the cosmos transformed...
