Cassini-Huygens

Produced by the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), this A4 colour brochure describes the leading role played by UK scientists and engineers at universities, observatories and Research Councils in the international mission to Saturn and Titan. The Cassini-Huygens mission set off from Earth on 15...

Carolyn Porco: Could a Saturn Moon Harbor Life

In this talk, courtesy of TED, Carolyn Porco shares exciting new findings from the Cassini spacecraft's recent sweep of one of Saturn's moons, Enceladus.

Samples gathered from the moon's icy geysers hint that an ocean under its surface could harbour life. Scientists were initially excited by the discovery...

Building Images

In this activity, students create colour images from satellite data. This allows them to study how different surfaces reflect different wavelengths of light, how coloured images are created using an RGB model, and how band combinations can be chosen to examine a particular landscape effectively.

This issue of Catalyst contains the following articles: 

From Pollutants in Whale Blubber to CSI Chemists

This article looks at scientists who are monitoring the accumulation of synthetic chemicals which are...

Build Your Own Universe

This resource, produced by SEPNet and Queen Mary University of London, uses Lego to represent the building blocks of matter. Different colour Lego bricks are assigned to different quarks and leptons. The quarks can be put together to make hadrons, such as protons and neutrons. The blocks can also be used to show...

Black Hole in the Milky Way

In this video from the European Southern Observatory, we go to the centre of the Milky Way to investigate a supermassive black hole. Two scientists describe a 16-year long study, which used several of ESO’s flagship telescopes, to produce the most detailed view ever of the surroundings of the monster lurking at...

Beryllium

In the build-up to the Christmas Lectures in 2012, the Royal Institution published a new video for every day of advent revealing the elements that really excite and inspire people. In this short film, biochemist Liz Bonnin looks to the stars for her pick from the periodic table.

The properties of beryllium...

Autonomous navigation

Dr. Mark Woods explains how the rover technologies must be partly autonomous, since the signals from Earth to Mars take too long for every command to be send from Earth.  The technologies developed for space, also have applications on Earth.

This video is part of a series of ten which look at the one of the...

Big Telescopes

The Big Telescopes poster links ground and space based telescopes with the parts of the electromagnetic spectrum that they are observing and their locations on Earth or in space.

The poster explains how larger telescopes allow scientists to learn more about the early universe and map our own galaxy with...
