Climate change will likely not result in increased plant growth as once thought. A new Danish research project shows that future periods of drought will limit growth – and that is bad news for the climate.
Danish researchers will supply crucial technology for a new mission to find evidence for the Big Bang theory. The mission requires technology that can measure distances of five million kilometres with the precision of a picometre – that's 0,00000000001cm.
In a hazardous initial attempt to sabotage the heavy water plant at Rjukan in Norway, 41 young Allied soldiers died. A soldier who was stricken from the roster for this mission, which was aimed at stalling Nazi Germany’s development of an atomic bomb, tells the inside story.
