ESO: Furthest ever detection of a galaxy’s magnetic field

Using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), astronomers have detected the magnetic field of a galaxy so far away that its light has taken more than 11 billion years to reach us: we see it as it was when the Universe was just 2.5 billion years old.

On the track of elusive neutrinos

Neutrinos are ubiquitous elementary particles that interact only very weakly with normal matter. Therefore, they usually penetrate it unhindered and are therefore also called ghost particles. Nevertheless, neutrinos play a predominant role in the early universe. In order to fully explain how our universe evolved, we need above all to know their mass. But so far, it has not been possible to determine this mass.

Science on Stage: Quantum Computing in STEM Education

Science on Stage is the European network for STEM teachers focusing on the exchange of best practice teaching ideas.

One of its activities is bringing highly relevant topics and new technologies to the classroom by developing teaching materials from teachers for teachers.
