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

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

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

Astronomers find dust in the early universe

02. marts 2015

Dust plays an extremely important role in the universe – both in the formation of planets and new stars. But the earliest galaxies had no dust, only gas. Now an international team of astronomers, led by researchers from the Niels

Snapshot of cosmic burst of radio waves

19. januar 2015

Snapshot of cosmic burst of radio waves A strange phenomenon has been observed by astronomers right as it was happening – a ‘fast radio burst’. The eruption is described as an extremely short, sharp flash of radio waves from an unknown source in the universe.
