  • Woman of the Week - Vera Rubin

    Published 22/11/16
    rubinYou've almost definitely heard of dark matter, but have you heard of the woman who proved it's existence? The first evidence of dark matter was found by the astronomer Vera Rubin in the 1970s, who observed that stars at the edge of galaxies move much faster than expected. Calculations using visible mass predicted that the stars should be moving considerably slower speeds, so something else had to be causing this increase in velocity; dark matter. The phenomenon had been predicted in the 1930s by Fritz Zwicky but it wasn't until Rubin 40 years later that it was proven.

  • History Society

    Published 22/11/16
    This term in History Society, members of the History department are taking the lunchtime session to give us a talk on an area of interest or expertise. So far we have heard about indigenous Canadian tribes from Mr Connor and how their societies functioned, interacted with foreign invaders and how they continue to live in modern-day Canada. Mrs Stanley discussed the American Civil War and how the legacy of it has sometimes distorted the conflict's root causes. This week Dr Tustin spoke of 'The Northern Ireland Troubles - The Perspective of a Biased Veteran'. He gave us an insight into what it was like for him to serve as a soldier during the Troubles and how the conflict was fought out militarily and politically.
