“Free-viewpoint video” technology, under development at the Poznań University of Technology, will enable viewers to watch video from varying points located on a virtual trajectory of their own selection
We talk to Dr. Włodzimierz Strupiński about the two-dimensional form of carbon that is taking the world of high technologies by storm, Poland’s role in its development, and the relationship between science and business
Prof. Marek Konarzewski, a corresponding member of the PAS whose work deals with issues of evolutionary biology, ecology, and physiology, discusses the lives of people and animals in post-reproductive age
The experimental pharmacologist Prof. Stanisław Jerzy Czuczwar, Vice President of the Polish Academy of Sciences, tells us about how he got into medical research, about the search for new epilepsy treatments, and how pharmaceuticals are in a way akin to cell phone towers.
As a scientist, she showed a continual drive to push forward a research agenda that she had sketched out in her youth. As a citizen, she demonstrated unyielding courage in defending the values she held dear. It has now been 40 years since the death of Maria Ossowska, the precursor of moral sociology
Blazars are active galaxies centered around supermassive black holes. They generate strong electromagnetic radiation in a very wide spectrum – from visible light to radio, infrared, ultraviolet, X-ray, and gamma radiation. All those kinds of radiation are studied by Dr. Alicja Wierzcholska (PAS Institute of Nuclear Physics), winner of START competition organized by the Foundation for P
Cereal crops are widely regarded as the most valuable grasses. But there are also “ordinary” species that can be used as cultivars for future agricultural varieties, as well as models for molecular research into plant tolerance of low temperatures and drought. These include ryegrasses (Lolium) and fescues (Festuca)
Back in the 1960s, as a 21-year-old, he managed the first gigantic computer in Poland. Now the young people he gives win prizes in prestigious programming contests. We talk with Prof. Jan Madey about the history and future of computer science.
