New members of the Royal Danish Academy of Science and Letters

A list of researchers a.o. from Aarhus University has recently been published

Earth as a 'time machine' is more efficient than calculated by Feynman

The core of the Earth is years younger than the surface. We knew that from Einsteins general theory of relativity, but a thorough recalculation shows that the original value calculated by Richard Feynman i 1962 needs correction. Instead of a few days, the difference amounts to 2,5 years. Ulrik Uggerhøj from IFA and collaborators show this in a new…

Are humans the new supercomputer?

Today, people of all backgrounds can contribute to solving serious scientific problems by playing computer games. A research group from IFA has extended the limits of quantum physics calculations. The results of game based research was published in Nature 14 April 2016.

Don't come too close to the stars if you are a super-Earth

Coming too close to the fire will get your fingers burnt. This old adage is also valid for exoplanets orbiting remote stars. Mia S. Lundkvist and a group of astronomers, of which many are affiliated with the Stellar Astrophysics Centre at Aarhus University, Denmark, have shown that it is also true in the real world. In the newly published paper…

The sugar of life found on comet 67/P

The fundamental building blocks of life seem to be 'easily' found in the Universe. Thanks to data transmitted from the comet lander Philae during it's short active period on comet 67/P, researchers from Aarhus University have participated in finding results that may change our fundamental understanding of the origin of life on Earth.(Article in…

Deadly stars - the Sun included

It happened in 1859. It almost happened in 2012. It will happen again: The Sun erupts in an enormous flare with a potential to destroy the electromagnetic infrastructure on Earth. It might be even worse, Christoffer Karoff and Mads Faurschou Knudsen of IFA and Department of Geoscience warns in a paper due to-day in Nature Communications. Our Sun…

Victor Silva Aguirre co-authors Nature paper

The age of a young to middle-aged star can be determined from how quickly or slowly it rotates, but the relationship breaks down for old stars; models now show that old stars are rotating much quicker than expected, perhaps because magnetic winds are weaker and therefore brake the rotation less effectively.

’Groggy’ elektroner ændrer på atomer

Forskere har gennem de sidste år lært, hvordan man kan observere på ultra-hurtige processer i atomer og molekyler. Feltet kan føre til ganske fundamentale gennembrud i vores forståelse af naturens virkemåder. Et internationalt forskerhold, med aarhusiansk deltagelse, har netop fundet frem til en vigtig brik i det arbejde.
