This section brings together posts on recent (and sometimes past) science at Jodrell Bank and elsewhere. Where we can, we try to give links to the bloggers themselves so you can follow their work in future. Many of them work here, many work on our University Main Campus in Manchester and some of them are national and international collaborators.

This summer’s bluedot festival falls on the 50th anniversary of the historic 1969 Moon Landing and we’re thrilled to announce the first phase of our mind-blowing Moon-themed line-up! Taking place 18-21 July 2019 our multi award-winning festival will bring a summer of celebrations honouring the moment humankind stepped foot on another celestial body and celebrating Jodrell Bank’s unique […]

Astronomers from around the world have combined radio telescopes on five continents, including at Jodrell Bank, to prove the existence of  jets (narrow streams of material that emerge from the aftermath of a violent collision of neutron stars). Neutron stars are ultra-dense stars, roughly the same mass as the Sun, but similar in size to a […]

Moon Landing 50th will run throughout 2019 and is set to include a wealth of events and activities to engage our visitors and communities with this important anniversary.

British Science Week is a national celebration of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths and, this year, takes place from 8th – 17th March. Here’s three great ways to get involved at Jodrell Bank:

Taking place 18-21 July 2019 and marking the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, this summer will see our fourth instalment of the multi award-winning festival and an even bigger celebration than ever before.

An international team of astrophysicists, including researchers from Jodrell Bank, have discovered that a remarkable star has been continuously erupting, on an annual basis, for millions of years.

Two University of Manchester astronomers have been awarded some of the Royal Astronomical Society’s (RAS) most prestigious prizes for their research and work in the field.

Last week, we released the audio recordings from a Soviet space mission from almost exactly fifty years ago, just as the race to the Moon was approaching the finish line.

An approximately 14 million year old pulsar star that is the “slowest-spinning” of its kind ever identified has been discovered by a Jodrell Bank PhD student.

Visitors to the Discovery Centre will notice that the Lovell Telescope is currently undergoing some maintenance work. A number of significant tasks are being undertaken: painting, steelwork repairs at the top of one of the supporting towers, and replacement of the original 1957 surface.
