First study to examine environmental impact of deorbited satellites
The University of Southampton is leading the first ever study of the environmental impact of satellites burning up as they re-enter the Earth's atmosphere. Particles and gases - such as aluminium, lithium, chlorine and nitrogen oxide - are released as decommissioned satellites combust when they re-enter the atmosphere.

Introducing ’cooling’ green parks to Indian cities
As India grapples once again with unprecedented summer temperatures, a project led by the University of Southampton in the UK is prioritising which areas of a major Indian city need 'cooling' green space. Extreme heat, with temperatures well above 40 degrees Celsius, has already hit parts of India this year.

New image reveals magnetic fields at edge of Milky Way's central black hole
New image reveals magnetic fields at edge of Milky Way’s central black hole
A new image from the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) collaboration involving UCL's Dr Ziri Younsi has uncovered strong and organised magnetic fields spiralling from the edge of the supermassive black hole Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*). Seen in polarised light for the first time, this new view of the monster lurking at the heart of the Milky Way galaxy has revealed a magnetic field structure strikingly similar to that of the black hole at the centre of the M87 galaxy, suggesting that strong magnetic fields may be common to all black holes.

Newly born neutron star detected in nearby supernova
An international team of astronomers including UCL's Professor Mike Barlow has discovered the first conclusive evidence that a neutron star exists at the centre of Supernova 1987A, a star explosion observed 37 years ago. Supernovae are the spectacular end result of the collapse of stars more massive than 8-10 times the mass of the sun.

Space reflectors could ensure bright future for solar power farms
Reflectors placed in orbit around the Earth which reflect sunlight towards future solar power farms at dawn and dusk could help accelerate the transition to net-zero, researchers say. Space engineers from the University of Glasgow have published new research showing how kilometre-wide orbiting reflectors could boost the output of future large-scale solar farms by reflecting additional sunlight towards them even after the sun has set.

Dust cloud from two colliding ice planets dims light of parent star
For the first time, an international group of astronomers have seen the heat glow of two giant ice planets colliding, and the resultant dust cloud move in front of the parent star several years later. The star ASASSN-21qj - named after the network of telescopes that first detected the fading of the star at visible wavelengths - was then studied intensively by a network of amateur and professional astronomers including those at The University of Warwick, who monitored the changes in the star's brightness over the next two years.
