Hunting for the Highest Energies

In the early 21st century, modern ground-based very-high-energy gamma-ray observatories have ushered in a new era of astronomy. The number of known gamma-ray sources increased from the handful detected prior to 2002 to more than 150 a decade later. Using three types of telescopes – small, medium, and large-sized – the CTA array will observe many new objects and phenomena. One of these instruments

„Academia” special issue 2015: Between Migration and Integration

Poland has not experienced any serious problems with immigration or immigrants. At the same time, the position adopted by public opinion and most politicians, which has been shaped by the media, is often very radical. It is likely impossible for that state of affairs to be changed quickly, although that does not mean that we cannot talk about migrations differently than we have to date.

Cooperation or Betrayal?

In the world of Darwinian rivalry, where the fittest individuals take advantage of others, explaining acts of altruism poses one of the most fundamental problems in evolutionary biology. In a previous issue of Academia magazine (4/2015), Dr. Kinga Wysieńska-Di Carlo and Dr. Zbigniew Karpiński explored this issue from the perspective of sociologists; here it is viewed through the prism of mathemati

„Academia” special issue 2015: Europe – A Weary Promised Land
