A collaboration of engineers, biomedical scientists, and clinicians in the Netherlands has recently reached a breakthrough in cell-based bone regenerative therapies. Although bone has a...

Lithium Power International: Pioneering the lithium supply chain

Industry-leading energy company Lithium Power International (LPI) is advancing their Maricunga brine project in Chile, a significant enhancement to the lithium supply chain. Adversity often...

Studying neutron star matter in the laboratory

Goethe University’s Professor Joachim Stroth explores neutron star matter and what happens when two of the densest macroscopic objects we know of merge. What happens when two of the densest macroscopic objects we know of merge? Incredible amounts of kinetic...

RSS Hydro: developing effective disaster risk management strategies

RSS Hydro Geoscientist & UAV Pilot, Margherita Bruscolini, discusses the necessity of understanding the components of disaster risk and how this will facilitate the design and application of effective disaster risk management strategies, as well as spreading awareness among...

Floating offshore wind energy opens up an ocean of possibilities

Dr Axelle Viré, Associate Professor at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), discusses the opportunities and challenges brought by floating offshore wind farms. Existing large-scale offshore wind farms use bottom-fixed wind turbines which are directly mounted on the seabed. This...

Unravelling the mysteries of the unknown and dark Universe

The Center for Cosmology at the University of California, Irvine, is on the frontier of discoveries of the nature of our cosmos – such as the nature of the dark Universe – with research spanning observational astronomy to theoretical...

Surveying new skies with the James Webb Space Telescope

The James Webb Space Telescope will revolutionise our understanding of the atmospheres of planets found orbiting other stars. Since the first detection of a planet orbiting another star in 1995, astronomers have found over 5000 “exoplanets,” mostly due to NASA’s...

Understanding solar neutrinos and the primordial Sun

Professor Wick Haxton from the University of California Berkeley discusses neutrino experiments past and present and explains how solar neutrinos may also come to answer the question of whether exo-planet formation leaves chemical imprints on host stars. In the summer...

Attaining accurate weather forecasts and nuclear theory with supercomputers

Professor James P. Vary from the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Iowa State University explains how supercomputers are revolutionising weather forecasts and predictive science. Do you ever wonder how your local weather is forecast for up to a week...

VTT PlasticsCompass: a comprehensive guide to developing sustainable plastics

VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland introduces its PlasticsCompass, an end-to-end method to develop sustainable plastics, from materials selection to production. The headlines are filled with stories about microplastics saturating the ocean, contaminating sea life and consequent­ly being ingested by...

Generating functional cartilage tissue by 3D bioprinting stem cells

A team of Swedish researchers have devised an innovative method to produce functional cartilage by 3D bioprinting stem cells. Today, several hundreds of millions of people worldwide are suffering from Osteoarthritis (OA). There is also an increase in OA incidence...

Potential applications for low-temperature plasmas

Dr Joseph Zimmerman, a Senior Scientist at CU Aerospace, discusses recent experimental investigations of applications for low-temperature plasmas. Solids, liquids, gases, and plasmas. As the world’s understanding of the fourth fundamental state of matter and complex plasmadynamics expands, new technologies...
