Coming back to Earth from outer space is as much a challenge as sending probes and spacecraft into space. Deep Bandivadekar, an aerospace PhD student, explores what it takes to return safely from outer space and a new frontier of research: transpiration cooling
Space technology is on the forefront of monitoring climate change and uses interesting techniques to detect changes from far above in the sky (practically, it’s the outer space). Deep Bandivadekar presents a sneak peek.
Michael Turner explains the problems that may arise from the rise in satellites and potentially overlapping trajectories.
Michael Turner celebrates 50 years since the first lunar landings and assesses the scientific legacy of the Apollo missions and the potential for future exploration of the moon and beyond.
To celebrate the release of our 10th print issue, and it’s theme ‘Competition Vs Collaboration’, we teamed up with Stratonauts for an exciting project. Premiered at our launch party and awards night, watch as we launch...
This month our Head of Podcasts, Annabel May, visited the Cafe Scientifique event “The Sleeping Giant” and catch up with main speaker Dr Ryan Milligan – ex trucker and NASA researcher. Dr Milligan is a solar physicist and new to the Physics and Astronomy department in the University of Glasgow, but in the past has worked at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland, just outside of Washington D.C.
Event and interviews held on November 6th, 2017.
