22 April 2013: TEDxCERN simulcast at UCL

CERN is hosting a TEDx event on 3 May 2013. Although the TEDxCERN main stage will be in Geneva, the UCL Institute for Origins and UCL Physics and Astronomy are hosting a live "simulcast" from 12:30 onwards on the day. More...

19 April 2013: New research hub promises cheaper energy, cleaner environment and economic development

Scientists will today launch a new centre for research into catalytic research – the study of materials which speed up chemical reactions.  New developments in this area have the potential to help production of clean fuels, develop new drugs and clean up pollution – and to maintain the UK’s strong position in this commercially important field.

19 April 2013: Sounds of UCL: competition winners and panoramas

What sounds make up London’s global university? UCL Communications has announced the winners of its ‘Sounds of UCL’ competition, which invited staff and students to capture ambient audio clips that reflect the life of UCL. More...

17 April 2013: Star factory in the early Universe challenges galaxy evolution theory

A team including Mat Page (UCL Space and Climate Physics) has discovered an extremely distant galaxy making stars more than 2000 times faster than our own Milky Way. Seen at a time when the Universe was less than a billion years old, its mere existence challenges our theories of galaxy evolution. The observations were carried out using the European Space Agency's Herschel Space Observatory. More...
