A space playground for the fourth state of matter

A recipe to understand atomic structures:

  • Mix electrically-charged gas in a sealed container with particles so small they would pass through a coffee filter.
  • Perform in the weightless environment of the International Space Station.
  • Adjust voltage to observe how the particles form three-dimensional crystal structures.
  • Start unlocking the physics behind the atoms’ behaviour.

Slow flow for glaciers thinning in Asia

Providing water for drinking, irrigation and power, glaciers in the world’s highest mountains are a lifeline for more than a billion people. As climate change takes a grip and glaciers lose mass, one might think that, lubricated by more meltwater, they flow more quickly. However, satellite images from over the last 30 years show that it isn’t as simple as that.
