Simon Foster from the Department of Physics at Imperial College London explains how a solar eclipse occurs and how to view it safely.

This weeks partial eclipse will happen on 20 March 2015 between approximately 08:30am and 10:30am (GMT). If you miss this one, it will be 2026 before you can catch the next!

Fascinating video piece by our interns Jenny Mitchell , Eliot Barford and Sam Tracey. The jazz and classical music fans are commenting like crazy as well. Great work team! +Eliot Barford

I have to come clean with you. The solar panels have spoken and they say they like Adele. There's no accounting for the musical tastes of spanking new technology.
The sound vibrations that make up music can make solar panels work harder, according to new research, and pop music performs better than classical. Scientists showed that high pitched sounds like those common in pop and rock music caused the greatest improvement in the solar cells' power output, ...

Scientists at Imperial and ZSL have captured rare footage of a little-known wild cat, which has red fur and a long distinctive tail with a black and white tip. I think it looks foxy, but they wouldn't let me write it it the press release. Mraw.
Scientists have captured rare footage of a little-known wild cat, which has red fur and a long distinctive tail with a black and white tip. Almost nothing is known about the habits of the mysterious bay cat, but it is thought to be at risk of extinction due to widespread loss of its habitat on ...

I made a video exploring one of the latest developments in graphene - how to paste carbon nanotubes onto any surface using a process similar to electroplating silver onto cutlery.

Maybe you'll get to see me on Youtube if this goes well :)
 
Love the CHRISTMAS LECTURES? Vote now!

We've been working hard to make past lectures available online but there are plenty more to go. To help us complete the project, we’re excited to have reached the final stages of the EMC Heritage Trust Project and the results will be decided by a public vote.

I prefer to go around on the road and head onto that island (sometimes the next light is green too so I get straight into the park). It cuts your time to cross and avoids too much pedestrian/bike melee.

Scientists have started taking data at a new Dark Matter detector in the USA, apparently it's knocked the socks off some past results, and they're already about to build a 100x more powerful one in the same goldmine in South Dakota. But Ian Sample still has reports it as 'fails to see a particle' in The Guardian http://lnkd.in/bujkDuC I detect more Higgs'-style-hype on the way...
Scientists testing the Large Underground Xenon (LUX) experiment have reported promising scientific and technological results today. They have set up the experiment to identify the nature of dark matter, an invisible substance that physicists believe is all around us, making up most of the matter ...

Excuse for a crowbarred analogy. Hope the LEGO marketing people don't come down on me like a ton of... oh.
Rows of aluminium studs help solar panels extract more energy from sunlight than those with flat surfaces. Most solar cells used in homes and industry are made using thick layers of material to absorb sunlight, but have been limited in the past by relatively high costs.

Hello!
This pub has really gone downhill since being taken over in 2011. Rude, careless staff, no atmosphere, what a shame.

Bierhäusle Feldberg is a great place to stay, with lovely big rooms, beautiful views, great food and super friendly staff. I'd recommend it for any families and couples, or if you're travelling on your own (like me). It has easy access to skiing at Feldberg piste, nature walks in the Black Forest, nearby is a beautiful waterfall - it was frozen when I visited. Travel is easy, it's close to the train station so easy to arrive by rail interchange at Freiburg. Thanks again to Alex and Thomas for a welcoming me to your hotel, I hope to come back!

Faraday museum with excellent science stuff. Beautiful architecture and the lecture theatre from the Christmas lectures from the telly. Don't go to the restaurant though, rather expensive. Sign up for cool events and science quizes and talks.
