The #Arab world is home to only one observatory with a telescope of one metre in diameter, everything else is smaller and hardly suitable for the exploration of the stars.

So a professor at #UAE, along with his two undergraduate students, set out to determine where would be the best places to build new observatories that would help make the region an important player in the field of #astronomy.

ارتفعت معدلات إنفلونزا الطيور في مصر، ويقول الخبراء الآن إن الممارسات السيئة وقلة المعلومات وتراخي السياسات قد تفضي إلى جائحة Η5Ν1.

هل ستطلق #مصر العنان لجائحة أخرى من الإنفلونزا؟

A new model in which the cosmos is filled with a “quantum fluid” suggests that there was no Big Bang – and could explain the origin of two mysterious components of the universe

قد تكون المنطقة ’محترقة بالشمس‘، ولكنها ما تزال تصارع لتحقيق إمكانياتها من الطاقة الشمسية.

من أهم البلاد في المنطقة في ابحاث الطاقة الشمسية؟ ما هي التحديات التي تواجهها؟ هل فشل أمل مشروع ديزرتك في شمال أفريقيا؟

يجيب ملف ‫#‏الطاقة‬ ‫#‏الشمسية‬ عن كل هذه الأسئلة والمزيد

Up to 5,000 Egyptian children a year could be infected by Hepatitis C through their mothers.

More worrying mother-to-child transmission could contribute between a third and a half of all new cases in children under five.

The Middle East and North Africa are accustomed to conflict, but even by usual standards, 2014 was a turbulent year across most of the region. While unrest made most of the headlines, there were many positive science stories that received little fanfare.
