Scottish rocks to play a key role in Mars space mission
Scottish rocks to play a key role in Mars space mission
Ancient rocks from the Isle of Rum in northwest Scotland are playing an important role in an international space mission to discover more about Mars. It's amazing to think that somewhere right here in the UK might be able to tell us something about the geology of a different planet Helen Williams A group of scientists, including from the University of Cambridge, have this week been collecting samples of rock from the NatureScot National Nature Reserve (NNR) as part of the NASA and European Space Agency (ESA)-s Mars Sample Return Program.

Medieval monks accidentally recorded some of history's biggest volcanic eruptions
Medieval monks accidentally recorded some of history’s biggest volcanic eruptions
By observing the night sky, medieval monks unwittingly recorded some of history's largest volcanic eruptions, according to a new analysis of 12th and 13th century European and Middle Eastern chronicles. An international team, including researchers from the University of Cambridge, drew on readings of medieval texts, along with ice core and tree ring data, to accurately date some of the biggest volcanic eruptions the world has ever seen.

Deep-sea devices 'hear' earthquakes, singing whales and an exploding ship
Deep-sea devices ’hear’ earthquakes, singing whales and an exploding ship
Explosions from a sinking ship are among the unexpected sounds detected by 50 highly sensitive seismometers placed on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean as part of an international collaboration led by UCL researcher Professor Ana Ferreira. The seismometers, which have now been collected after spending a year at the bottom of the ocean, record the Earth's ground motions on the sea floor and thus capture the Earth's "pulse".

Satellites to map ocean clouds that keep Earth cool
Satellites to map ocean clouds that keep Earth cool
A new European Space Agency (ESA) mission involving UCL researchers will 3D map Earth's "cooling blanket" of low-lying ocean clouds that may be at risk of disappearing due to climate change. The 10 Earth Explorer mission, known as Harmony, has been approved by the ESA Programme Board on Earth Observation, meaning it can move from the preparatory phase into the design consolidation and implementation phase, with a launch scheduled for 2029.
