Engineers have been at Russia's Plesetsk launch site for a month now, ticking off the jobs on the 'to do' list so that the Copernicus Sentinel-5P satellite is fit and ready for liftoff on 13 October. With the satellite now fuelled, the team has passed another milestone. Fuelling a satellite is a particularly delicate operation. Hydrazine is extremely toxic so only a few specialists wearing 'scape' suits remain in the cleanroom. Once filled with 82 kg of hydrazine, the satellite was weighed...

The Sun's recent activity has caught the interest of scientists and space weather forecasters worldwide, highlighting the need to keep a watchful eye on our star and its awesome power. On 6 and 10 September, our Sun produced a pair of solar flares, the strongest observed in over 10 years. They were accompanied by huge eruptions of billions of tonnes of matter into space. While many such eruptions fall back onto the hot surface, these two did not and became 'coronal mass ejections' (CMEs) -...

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has observed a planet outside our solar system that looks as black as fresh asphalt because it eats light rather than reflecting it back into space. This light-eating prowess is due to the planet's unique capability to trap at least 94 percent of the visible starlight falling into its atmosphere. The oddball exoplanet, called WASP-12b, is one of a class of so-called "hot Jupiters," gigantic, gaseous planets that orbit very close to their host ...

    Carditis

    CARDITIS's objective was to overcome the weaknesses of the existing methods for the accurate reconstruction and simulation of the cardiac system. CARDITIS aimed at providing cardiologists and cardio surgeons with a software and hardware platform, which could be used as an intelligent interventional and surgical simulator. Its primary objective was to expand understanding of the human cardiovascular system.


    Care-Paths

    The goal of CARE-PATHS was  to set up an intelligent operational environment for making Clinical Governance effective, to support Health Professionals, Clinicians and Care Operators, in continually improving the quality of their services and safeguarding high standards of care. The approach adopted by CARE-PATHS was to exploit emerging technologies in knowledge management and semantic web for enabling the methodology of "Clinical Pathways" to function, to be effective and to succeed.


    Weight-Info

    The objective of WEIGHT-INFO was to provide the citizen with an easily and from everywhere accessible, integrated environment where any weight related issue is targeted in a personalised effective manner from the citizen point of view. The work programme was constituted of 11 work packages, dealing both with the construction of a reliable information environment (certified by medical organizations) and with the realisation of easily accessible online services, customised to deal with different user profiles, needs and weight problems. The usage of portable phones and other new communication devices was taken into consideration in the system design and implementation.


    E-Remedy

    In the envisaged scenario, where a rehabilitation treatment was prescribed, the physician, in co-operation with the physiotherapist, identified a personalised rehabilitation program for the patient, taking into account the patient status and needs. Based on patient’s personal needs, at the centre, the rehabilitation protocol was accurately defined, depending on the actual patient status; using the Rehabilitation process management tool the rehabilitation period, the frequency of visits and possible additional examinations were accurately planned.
