Easter can be calculated with greater accuracy using new ‘old’ astronomical method

18 March 2016

Easter can fall early and late, in fact, the timing can fluctuate by an entire month from late March to late April. Using a new astronomical method of calculation, the date of Easter would be better defined as the first Sunday after

Climate variations analysed 5 million years back in time

16 March 2016

When we talk about climate change today, we have to recognise the natural variations to be able to distinguish them from the human-induced changes. Researchers from the NBI have analysed the natural climate variations over

Protected Majorana states for quantum information

09 March 2016

Quantum technology has the potential to revolutionize computation, cryptography, and simulation of quantum systems. However: quantum states are fragile, and so must be controlled without being measured.

Cancer treatment on a cellular level

02 March 2016

The most common treatments for cancer are radiation and chemotherapy. However they have side effects and also damage healthy tissues. Researchers at NBI are therefore working to develop a gentler treatment that ‘tricks’ the

Diversity of nature formulated

01 February 2016

We humans are affecting nature to a greater and greater degree and this is contributing to the reduction of biodiversity globally. To better assess the consequences requires a better understanding of the environmental

The solar system’s ninth planet in sight

26 January 2016

Two American researchers believe that they have found evidence that there is still a giant planet in our own solar system that we have never seen. It has long been known that the small dwarf planet Sedna moved in a strange
