A brand new strategy aimed at improving the productivity of the UK economy and the skills of its workforce has been launched by Harwell Campus.
An international team of scientists have utilised the UK's premier neutron and muon source, the ISIS facility, to study the structure of electrons in useful materials – such as those with superconductivity or magnetism.
A hole at the heart of a stunning rose-like interstellar cloud has puzzled astronomers for decades - but new UK research offers an explanation for the discrepancy between the size and age of the Rosette Nebula's central cavity and that of its central stars.
Advances in ocean monitoring are providing more insights about our seas and environment than ever before, from marine life, to sea temperatures, pollution and weather.
American and British business is expected to benefit from a new collaboration agreement signed today between leading US and UK research laboratories. The deal focuses on translating high performance computing techniques widely used in academia into processes to boost industrial productivity and innovation.
The first-ever observed interstellar visitor to our solar system has had a violent past – causing it to tumble around chaotically as it travels through space – an STFC-funded scientist has discovered.
Drivers over the age of 65 from across the UK are needed to take part in a new voluntary research project designed to help senior drivers stay on the road safely for longer.
The Science and Technology Facilities Council's (STFC) flagship new business innovation centre – which will bring together the best of academia and industry – is now welcoming applications from start-up companies.
UK physicists have for the first time used an extremely powerful laser beam to slow down electrons travelling at near-light speeds – a quantum mechanical phenomenon thought to occur only around objects like black holes.
It’s an exciting start to the New Year for the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) and the teams involved in the mission, as it begins what will be its final set of tests. JWST has made the journey from the NASA Johnson Space Center in Texas where it has been for the last nine months undergoing extensive cryogenic testing, to Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems (NGAS), California, where it will remain until it is ready for launch in mid-2019.
