Powerful new telescopes are opening up the view to the universe's furthest galaxies, and revealing how they developed (http://bit.ly/HOldLite).

An EU-funded project has shown that by setting up onsite facilities, fruit and vegetable processors can cost-effectively transform their by-products into sustainable added-value compounds. This can boost rural employment and provide a new source of ingredients for the chemicals, materials, food and pharmaceutical industries.
