The Latest Science News And Features

Whether you’re a patient, family member or friend, healthcare professional or scientist, we want to hear from you to create a new collection of stories to complement our Cancer Revolution exhibition. Take part in a new art project, creating incredible stories from the history of science alongside internationally acclaimed artist Bedwyr Williams. As the world’s leading group of science museums, we share our unparalleled collection spanning science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine with over five million visitors each year. Browse all our temporary exhibitions, permanent galleries, online events and festivals to find out what’s on now and coming soon at the museum.

Here, we describe a bio-photovoltaic energy harvester system using photosynthetic microorganisms on an aluminium anode that can power an Arm Cortex M0+, a microprocessor widely used in Internet of Things applications. The proposed energy harvester has operated the Arm Cortex M0+ for over six months in a domestic environment under ambient light. It is comparable in size to an AA battery, and is built using common, durable, inexpensive and largely recyclable materials. and innovation play an important role in encouraging prosperity and growth through the Science and Innovation Network . In creating the next generation of tools and working in partnership with the community we tackle some of the biggest challenges to research. Our vision is of a future where a trusted and collaborative research ecosystem drives progress for all.

Scientists say we need to future-proof our diets in a warming world by eating little-known plants. A bill is to be introduced in Parliament in two days’ time to allow the commercial growing of gene-edited crops in England. Explore the past, present and future of the everyday things in your home with our new podcast, hosted by Nihal Arthanayake.

They could be released into the wild as early as 2023, as part of a bid to save the species from extinction. AI is ‘equal to or better than’ humans when it comes to hiring people with a high performance at work, report academics at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Invented by California-based artificial intelligence company Zone7, the cutting edge technology is being used to detect injury risk and recommend pre-emptive action for sports teams across the world.

To settle the debate, researchers from the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, the University of Bamberg and The Ohio State University evaluated data from 130 experiments with a total of 10,000 participants. The analysis revealed a link between power posing and a more positive self-perception, as well as behaviour. The Science Council provides a voice on policy and ethical issues affecting the science community, fostering debate and the exchange of ideas across the network. And supporting member organisations to be more effective in meeting the needs of the science community and attracting the next generation into fulfilling science careers.
