Lightweight aerogel suspended in honeycomb structure. Credit: University of Bath Extremely low-density graphene-based aerogel ‘meringue’ can improve passenger comfort and reduce noise up to 80%. An incredibly light new material that can reduce aircraft engine noise and improve passenger comfort has been developed at the University of Bath. The graphene […]

Impression of a GRB outflow showing the prompt phase (gamma-ray flash), reverse shock and forward shock. Credit: Nuria Jordana-Mitjans Astrophysicists from the University of Bath in the UK find the magnetic field in gamma-ray bursts is scrambled after the ejected material crashes into, and shocks, the surrounding medium. An international […]

Olmsted (STScI) Astrophysicists have developed a new method for finding changing-looking quasars – important but extremely rare objects in deep space. Astrophysicists from the University of Bath have developed a […]
