Engineers aim for the stars with new rocket engine
A ‘self-eating' rocket engine which could place small satellites in orbit more easily and more affordably is under development at universities in Scotland and Ukraine. In a paper published in the Journal of Spacecraft and Rockets , engineers from the University of Glasgow and Oles Honchar Dnipro National University in Ukraine discuss how they have built, fired, and for the first time throttled up and down an ‘autophage' engine which could change how small satellites are sent into space.

Opinion: The Dambusters raid took place 75 years ago - here's how they made a bomb bounce
Opinion: The Dambusters raid took place 75 years ago - here’s how they made a bomb bounce
Hugh Hunt from Cambridge's Department of Engineering - who recreated the Dambusters†raid in 2011 - discusses how engineers made a bomb bounce 75 years ago in an article for The Conversation .† Sir Barnes Wallis was a genius engineer who designed a very special bomb during World War II. The idea was that it would bounce across water and destroy German dams along the Ruhr Valley, causing massive flooding and damage to water and hydroelectricity supplies.

Unexpected atmospheric vortex behaviour on Saturn's moon Titan
Unexpected atmospheric vortex behaviour on Saturn’s moon Titan
A new study, led by a University of Bristol earth scientist, has shown that recently reported unexpected behaviour on Titan, the largest moon of Saturn, is due to its unique atmospheric chemistry. Titan's polar atmosphere recently experiences and unexpected and significant cooling, contrary to all model predictions and differing from the behaviour of all other terrestrial planets in our solar system.

Duo of titanic galaxies caught in extreme starbursting merger
Duo of titanic galaxies caught in extreme starbursting merger
A pair of exceptionally rare hyper-luminous star-forming galaxies have been discovered, representing an extreme galaxy merger. The two extremely bright and massive galaxies have been caught in the act of merging in the early universe. These so-called hyper-luminous starburst galaxies are exceedingly rare at this epoch; as a pair, they may represent one of the most-extreme examples of violent star formation ever observed.
