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.

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
