Astrochemical origins of water on Earth

Professor Edwin Bergin, of the Department of Astronomy at University of Michigan and Dariusz Lis at NASA JPL-Caltech, discuss the astrochemical origins of water...

VascTech materials – the possibilities are endless

Dr Chris Mangun, Director of Advanced Materials at CU Aerospace, explains the benefits and applications of VascTech (Vapourisation of sacrificial components Technology), a unique process to imbue composites with three-dimensional vasculature. In biological systems, fluid transport through internal vasculature enables...

The Great Green Wall: Protecting Sahel through science-led intervention

The Great Green Wall initiative works towards reducing land degradation and deforestation through science-led natural resource management and intervention. Deborah Goffner, research director for the French National Centre for Scientific Research, is currently leading a research group in the international...

Cleaning rivers to clean the seas – part II

River Cleaning proposes a new and innovative system to stop pollution from oils and other liquid pollutants in river waters. Parallel and integral to the plastic recovery system, it is designed to always allow navigability with the utmost respect...

The science of tactile melodies

Yasuhiro Suzuki, an associate professor at Nagoya University, Japan, explains time related variations in tactile sensations and tactile melodies. Tactile science has not dealt with time-varying tactile sensations like melodies but have dealt with tactile sensations that do not change...

Creating innovative materials with AI and fundamental physics

Dr Mazhar Ali of the Ali Group at the Max Planck Institute discusses the role of AI and fundamental physics in the creation of innovative materials. Marc Andreesen, one of the most successful ventures capitalists in history, famously wrote that...

iCUPE Datasets for Polar Regions

The Horizon 2020 iCUPE project aims to improve our understanding of pollution sources, environmental changes, and their impact on polar regions. The coordination of the Integrative and Comprehensive Understanding on Polar Environments (iCUPE) project is led by Professor Tuukka Petaja...

Drone usage in flood science and beyond

Drone usage has increased greatly in many sectors over the last ten years. Dr Guy Schumann, CEO of RSS-Hydro, analyses the adoption of drone technology in a number of sectors, including disaster response. According to a report by PwC,1 drone...

Sustainable agriculture: Nutrient removal from agricultural runoff

The NuReDrain project discuss their work developing innovative technologies for removing the nutrients from agricultural runoff. The North Sea region is recognised as an intensive farming area. Nutrient inputs from land have resulted in eutrophication of rivers, lakes, estuaries, and...

Could financial incentives help preserve tropical forests?

Environmental scientists from St. Edward’s University discuss how paying landowners to protect trees could help preserve tropical forests. Tropical forests are home to half of the species on earth, while providing essential global services such as regulating climate, purifying air...

How PilotEdge is changing the way pilots interact with flight simulations

The multiplatform distributed virtual training environment (MDVTE) is the only flight simulation experience comparable to operating an actual aircraft. Flying an aircraft is a highly technical skill. Pilots require hundreds of hours of training and experience before they receive their...
