Astronomy - Aug 7
Our astronomers have identified a rare moment in the life of some of the universe's most energetic objects. Now Durham University's researchers have found a phase in the development of these galactic giants that could tell us more about how quasars and their host galaxies evolve.
Materials Science - Aug 5

Surface science can make a big difference to our health, well-being and environment. Our surface scientists at Durham have been working on a whole range of applications that have already changed our lives in some way (think mobile phones and puddles) and could make a real difference to people around the world, particularly in developing countries.

Einstein's theory of General Relativity is world famous - but it might not be the only way to explain how gravity works and how galaxies form.

Environment - Jul 3

At Durham we're proud to be home to incredible women who are making a difference in the world. Their work is helping to tackle global issues such as disaster risk management, water sustainability and environmentally friendly engineering.
