The science of hydrology is turning to thermodynamics to predict the evolution of water flow. The result is a detailed empirical case-study of ecological interest where the use of maths helps us to understand our world.
Astrophysicists from Liege have discovered three Earth-sized planets around a star 40 light years away. These planets could present habitable conditions on their surfaces. In addition, the large telescopes of the future will be capable of studying them in detail and detecting whether or not life exists on them!
How will Lake Kivu react to the massive exploitation of methane and climate change? And what will the impact be on local fishing, among other things? This unique ecosystem is the start of a major turning point that requires supervision.
