KU students win gold in the United States for Mars moss project

05. oktober 2015

Can we develop a moss that can survive and grow on Mars? A group of students from the Center for Synthetic Biology and the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen decided to try.

Super-bright supernova with extreme burst of gamma radiation

08. juli 2015

Super-bright supernova with extreme burst of gamma radiation Astronomers from NBI have observed a super-bright supernova association with a very unusual long lasting gamma-ray burst. Gamma-ray bursts are in rare cases observed in connection with supernovae, which are the

Volcanic eruptions are important for world climate

08. juli 2015

Volcanic eruptions are important for world climate Large volcanic eruptions release huge clouds of ash and acid into the atmosphere. These clouds spread across the globe and block out the Sun, resulting in a colder climate for decades afterwards. Climate researchers have known

Risk of major sea level rise in Northern Europe

18. juni 2015

Risk of major sea level rise in Northern EuropeGlobal warming leads to the ice sheets on land melting and flowing into the sea, which consequently rises. New calculations by researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute show that the sea level in Northern Europe may rise more than

Research station moved nearly 500 km across the Greenland ice sheet

28. maj 2015

The entire research station NEEM has been moved 465 km across the Greenland ice sheet on skis to the new camp EGRIP, where there will be a future international drilling camp and a gateway to research programmes in East

Mars might have liquid water

13. april 2015

Mars might have liquid water Researchers have long known that there was water in the form of ice on Mars. Now, new research from NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity shows that it is possible that there is liquid water close to the surface of Mars.

Mars has belts of glaciers consisting of frozen water

07. april 2015

Mars has belts of glaciers consisting of frozen water Mars has distinct polar ice caps, but Mars also has belts of glaciers at its central latitudes in both the southern and northern hemispheres. A thick layer of dust covers the glaciers, so they appear as surface of the ground, but radar

Planets in the habitable zone around most stars, calculate researchers

18. marts 2015

Astronomers have discovered thousands of exoplanets in our galaxy, the Milky Way. By analysing these planetary systems, researchers from the Australian National University and the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen have calculated

Astronomers observe four images of the same supernova using a cosmic lens

05. marts 2015

Astronomers have for the first time observed a supernova multiply-imaged due to gravitational lensing. The light from the supernova is seen in four different images due to a cosmic phenomenon that causes light to be deflected by the
