Celebration of physics

An open event showcasing exciting science, from optical techniques in medicine to the possibility of creating artificial black holes here on Earth, is being held at the University of St Andrews.

Our enigmatic sun

The Sun is classified as an ordinary, middle-aged star and yet its magnetic field is responsible for some of the most dramatic and energetic phenomena in the solar system, such as solar flares and other eruptions.

Forecasting space weather

A study by St Andrews solar scientists to establish why one of the most dramatic forms of solar phenomena occurs could lead to a significant contribution to the development of 'space weather forecasts'.
