Hungry galaxies grow fat on flesh of their neighbours

Galaxies grow large by eating their smaller neighbours, finds an international research team, including York University. Exactly how massive galaxies attain their size is poorly understood, not least because they swell over billions of years. But now through a combination of observation and modelling, researchers, including Leo Alcorn, a York Science Fellow, have found a clue.

York University researchers one step closer to creating organic batteries

York University researchers have discovered a way to make Lithium-powered batteries more environmentally friendly while retaining performance, stability and storage capacity. Using organic materials are the way forward and that has scientists like Professor Thomas Baumgartner of the Faculty of Science and his team busy developing and testing new molecules to find the right ones to replace the rare metals currently in use.
