    The first chapter about the creation of our Solar System is now ready to be written. The cloud of molecules from which the Solar System arose consisted of several generations of stardust, say researchers after analysing a meteorite.
  • Researcher teleports with a kitten

    Researchers can now use a special beam of light called a Schrödinger kitten for teleportation. The method can eventually lead to quantum computers and to communication which is secure against eavesdropping.
  • New model helps scientists understand solar flares

    Using a new computer model, researchers can now see how a solar flare arises and develops. An increased understanding of the gigantic explosions on the Sun will over time give us better space weather forecasts.
  • New camera detects chemicals

    Soon it may be possible to diagnose diseases, measure pollution and analyse food – with a camera.
