Satellite MATS takes its first image of the upper atmosphere
On November 9th, it was time for MATS to take the first images of the atmosphere. At 10:32 CET, the control center at Esrange Space Center came in contact with the satellite via the tracking antenna at Esrange.
On Wednesday November 16th at 7:47 CET one could finally watch the launch of the Artemis I mission. I was looking forward to it for a while now as the launch date was postponed multiple times because of technical issues and some hurricanes. But as often in science it is worth waiting as the mission is now going well.
Are you also excited that humanity wants to return to the moon and with the first Artemis mission came closer to this goal?
Imagine that a nuclear accident would happen in Sweden or that nuclear weapons would be used in our neighbourhood. Then we need to know how to act to reduce the damage caused by ionising radiation. How the damage is treated depends on how much of the cells' DNA has been destroyed. Listen to the authorities and follow the instructions, is hospital physicist Tomas Palmqvist's advice. The best way to protect yourself is to keep your distance from the radiation source and expose yourself to as little radiation as possible. Concrete houses protect better than wooden ones and close all the vents in case the worst happens.
In a new dissertation, titled "Early Determination of Arbitral Jurisdiction: Balancing efficacy, efficiency, and legitimacy of arbitration", Dr Fabricio Fortese examines the timing of judicial determination of jurisdictional disputes in the presence of an arbitration agreement.
A new study by DEEP researcher Julie Garrison and colleagues shows that the Baltic Clam ingests a higher amount of unicellular phytoplankton than what was previously thought. Knowing what the Baltic Clam preferably eats is important to accurately estimate carbon cycling in the Baltic Sea.
