Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd (SSTL) and the University of Surrey (UniS) cordially invite members of the media to the live televised launch of the China DMC+4 earth observation satellite on Tuesday, 27 September at 7.52 a.m. at UniS School of Management.
China DMC+4, which will be launched from Plesetsk in northern Russia, will be used both to monitor preparations for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, and will be the most advanced satellite to form part of the Disaster Monitoring Constellation (DMC). DMC provides rapid response imaging data of disaster areas to aid organisations and government agencies, and which has already been used to assist in Darfur, the Indian Ocean Tsunami and the recent floods caused by Hurricane Katrina in the Gulf coast of the USA.
The launch is a mark of increasing Sino-British cooperation and the success of UK high-tech industry in exporting to the developing markets of China. It also confirms SSTL status as the world leader in the field of small satellites.

For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.
According to Albert Einstein's Equivalence Principle, all bodies are accelerated at the same rate by the Earth's gravity, regardless of their properties. This...

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
