He was the very first person to walk in space. A rescue team on skis brought him to safety after an emergency landing in the Siberian forest. Now, Alexei Leonov is coming to Trondheim.
Japanese researchers have access to the largest scientific vessel ever constructed, one that has a 120 metre tall derrick capable of drilling to 7500 metres below the seafloor. They’re using it to hunt for life deep under the seafloor and explore for mineral deposits at the bottom of the ocean — topics that are of great interest to Norwegian researchers.
The number of adults in Norway who suffer from PTSD is equivalent to practically an entire year class of Norwegians, claims a new study.
How and why do movements of the Earth’s crust still cause death and destruction millions of years after they first happened? A new technique sheds light on this question.
Forty-six science superstars will gather in Trondheim this 18-23 June for the Starmus Science Festival, a one-of-a-kind event that mixes cool science seminars with red-hot concerts.
What is the best form of first aid for a cold, injured body? Mountain medicine researchers are now co-operating to find the answer. At present there is actually no “best practice” for treating this type of patients.
Production of electricity is responsible for about a quarter of global greenhouse gas emissions, and demand is poised to rise as underserved populations connect to the grid, and electronics and electric vehicles proliferate.
