Solar Orbiter shows the Sun as never seen before
Solar Orbiter, a European Space Agency (ESA) spacecraft carrying instruments proposed, designed and built at UCL, has had its closest approach yet to the Sun, providing breathtaking images and movies of the solar poles, of powerful flares, and of a curious solar "hedgehog". The close approach to the Sun, known as perihelion, took place on 26 March.

Colossal black holes locked in cosmic dance at heart of galaxy
Colossal black holes locked in cosmic dance at heart of galaxy
Astronomers find evidence for the tightest-knit supermassive black hole duo observed to date. An epic deep space cosmic ballet of two giant black holes orbiting one another every two years has been observed for the first time by an international team of astronomers. Locked in an epic cosmic waltz 9 billion light-years away the two supermassive black holes appear to be orbiting around each other every two years.

Researcher predicts spacecraft's brush with comet
Researcher predicts spacecraft’s brush with comet
For the second time in its mission so far, the Sun-observing spacecraft Solar Orbiter has flown through the tail of a comet, generating a wealth of science data - helped by an early prediction of the event by a UCL PhD researcher. For several days in mid-December, the European Space Agency (ESA) spacecraft - which carries instruments designed and built at UCL - found itself flying through the ion tail of Comet C/2021 A1 Leonard, analysing particles from the comet and the way its tail interacted with the solar wind.

Iron integral to the development of life on Earth - and the possibility of life on other planets
Researchers at the University of Oxford uncover the importance of iron for the development of complex life on Earth - which also may hint at the likelihood of complex life on other planets. Iron is an essential nutrient that almost all life requires to grow and thrive. Iron's importance goes all the way back to the formation of the planet Earth, where the amount of iron in the Earth's rocky mantle was 'set' by the conditions under which the planet formed and went on to have major ramifications for how life developed.

Cosmic dawn occurred 250 to 350 million years after Big Bang
Cosmic dawn, when stars formed for the first time, occurred 250 million to 350 million years after the beginning of the universe, according to a new study led by researchers at UCL and the University of Cambridge. The study, published in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society , suggests that the NASA James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), scheduled to launch in November, will be sensitive enough to observe the birth of galaxies directly.
