To mark Global Astronomy Month, and following on from the BBC's Stargazing Live TV programmes, the School of Physics and Astronomy is holding an evening of astronomical entertainment at the Mile End campus on Tuesday 4 April
Astronomer Dr David Quénard of the School of Physics and Astronomy is one of the authors of a research paper, published on 8 March in the Astrophysical Journal Letters, that reports the discovery of an unexpectedly large amount of interstellar dust in a very distant galaxy.
On Monday February 20, a delegation of PsiStar students have visited CERN and its facilities. They visited the first synchrocyclotron built at CERN in 1954 and then they went underground to visit the cathedral-size CMS and ATLAS experiments, taking data at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
It is sad to announce the recent passing of Professor Sir Peter Mansfield, who studied Physics at Queen Mary College, graduating in 1959 before moving to Nottingham University. Professor Mansfield made several key contributions in the the field of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, leading to the development of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) for medical applications.
There is a growing number of projects across the UK giving the opportunity for school students to run their own research projects. Ever wondered how the projects come together? Are you a researcher or teacher and thought about running such a project?
Before the Cassini spacecraft makes its final plunge into Saturn's atmosphere in September this year, one of its last acts will be to take a photo of an intriguing object that Professor Carl Murray of the School of Physics and Astronomy has been studying for nearly four years.
Twenty-five years ago today, on 9 January 1992, astronomers published the first unambiguous discovery of an exoplanet — a planet beyond our Solar System. Since then the search for, and study of, exoplanets has become an exciting and productive branch of astronomy, one in which researchers in Queen Mary's School of Physics and Astronomy are actively engaged.
