Serengeti National Park is the symbol of Africa’s abundant wildlife. The park as we know it today could be history within a few decades.
Tomorrow’s maritime technology must be able to handle extreme conditions during Arctic and deep-water operations. A new research centre designed to develop these technologies holds promise for Norwegian industry.
Proper and prompt treatment in the emergency room saves lives. With help from Norwegian doctors, a hospital in Nepal has started to sort patients into red, yellow and green categories. The system has made a difference.
Only a few of the Stone Age rock carvings in Norway depict animals in a naturalistic way. Four of them are located around the Trondheimsfjord.
When racers are chasing hundredths of seconds, the difference between winning and losing is tiny. The type of fabric and seam locations can determine whether a cyclist makes it onto the podium or not
The best weapon in the battle against salmon lice in the Norwegian aquaculture industry has proved to be the use of what are called “cleaner fish”, fish that eat salmon lice. But these fish often die during breeding. Now, researchers have found a way to help the young fish survive.
Four NTNU architecture students spent their autumn semester working on rebuilding Streetlight, an orphanage in the Philippines that was destroyed by a typhoon before Christmas last year.
Scientists have recently found a species of sea slug that has apparently made its way north from the Mediterranean Sea. Sometimes called sea slugs or sea butterflies, these mobile nudibranchs are carnivores that eat coral and jellyfish.
Atomic level changes in nanomaterials are contributing to incredible advances in solar cell and LED technology. NTNU researchers have found a way to design nanowires with a built-in current that will make them even more effective in solar cells.
Calanus finmarchicus makes up about 90 per cent of the bottom of the food chain in northern oceans, and is eaten by fish and baleen whales alike, but as the ocean becomes more acidic due to CO2 emissions, populations may decrease dramatically.
When the oil runs out, Norway will have to depend on nanotechnology as its main source of income. Nanotechnology is all about creating custom materials on a tiny scale that allows for incredible possibilities in the real world.
DNA profiles of the sea eagle population from a large island in mid-Norway are providing new and useful information as to how the birds avoid being killed by wind turbines.
Women who have complications during pregnancy are at a much higher risk for cardiovascular disease. Now, information from 30 000 women will make a huge contribution to preventing disease and saving lives.
If you have this beautiful flower in your garden, you should uproot it before the seed pods explode, releasing thousands of seeds. It spreads like the black plague.
NTNU is one of Europe’s top research centres on carbon capture and storage.
Microorganisms that live in the depths of an oil reservoir can withstand such extreme conditions they can be used in harsh chemical processes.
The polar bear is known for having alarmingly high concentrations of PCB and other pollutants. But researchers have discovered that Greenland sharks store even more of these contaminants in their bodies.
Underwater mining is a growing industry. Norway might be mining gold from 2000 metres below sea level in just a few years.
Battlefield tourists are on the hunt for the beautiful in the ugly. Meaning in the meaningless. And sometime timeless in the past.
