The ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO) has revealed how oddly ‘light’ carbon monoxide forms in Mars’ atmosphere. The finding paints a better picture of how carbon-containing matter can be formed on the Red Planet without life, and helps clarify a puzzling discovery made by NASA’s Curiosity rover last year.
Today, ACTRIS was established as a European Research Infrastructure Consortium for state-of-the-art data and services in atmospheric research.
From April 20 until June 25, an urban and contemporary art exhibition has opened in Ixelles, Brussels, inspired by science and with contributions from a few BIRA-IASB scientists.
On 13 April 2023,the ESA spacecraft JUICE will take off on board an Ariane 5 launcher from ESA’s Spaceport in Kourou, French Guyana. After an 8-year-long journey, JUICE, an acronym for JUpiter ICy moons Explorer, will investigate Jupiter and its icy moons, with a special focus on Ganymede, the largest moon in the solar system.
A NASA Earth-observing satellite has helped researchers track carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions (sources) for more than 100 countries around the world.
Every individual has something relevant to say, something you never thought of. A human mind is restricted to its experiences, knowledge and perspectives. No one can do all or know all. This is the central argument for the need of diversity, and today, on the International Day for Women and Girls in Science, we want to emphasize the need for women’s perspectives and abilities in scientific research.
