University of Warwick Department of Physics involved in two new projects funded by UK Research and Innovation
University of Warwick's Christmas Lectures move online to bring the annual science extravaganza to your living room
Physicists at the University of Warwick will be working their way onto your Christmas viewing schedules as their spectacular Christmas Lectures return once again, with a little bit of Christmas magic (explained by physics). The University of Warwick Department of Physics has moved its annual science extravaganza online and they are available from 15 December.
Warwick researchers to explore the Milky Way & famous maths problem thanks to major European grant award
The ERC today, the 9th December, announced the winners of its latest Consolidator Grant competition for mid-career researchers. The funding is part of the EU’s current research and innovation programme, Horizon 2020, and worth in total €655 million. With this support, the new grantees will be able to consolidate their teams and have far-reaching impact. The two Warwick academics who have received the award are Professor David Loeffler, from the Mathematics Institute, and Dr Pier-Emmanuel Tremblay from the Department of Physics.
In direct contradiction to the official forecast, a team that includes University of Warwick scientists and led by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) is predicting that the Sunspot Cycle that started this fall could be one of the strongest since record-keeping began.
Fast-moving gas flowing away from young star’s asteroid belt may be caused by icy comet vaporisation
A team of astronomers, including a scientist from the University of Warwick, has detected fast-moving carbon monoxide gas flowing away from a young, low-mass star: a unique stage of planetary system evolution which may provide insight into how our own solar system evolved and suggests that the way systems develop may be more complicated than previously thought.
