Clamp band for attaching satellites, for example to a carrier rocket, is being developed by Polish engineers. A 3 mm thick steel "tape" must be capable of holding a satellite weighing up to 10 tons and withstand extreme operating conditions.
Astronomers for the first time simultaneously registered two types of waves: gravitational and electromagnetic waves originating from one phenomenon - a collision of two neutron stars. Polish researchers participated in observations conducted by research teams around the world.
Two asteroids discovered by Polish astronomy enthusiasts will be named after the women: the Polish Olympiad On Astronomy and Astrophysics winner Zosia Kaczmarek and a doctor from Kraków Marta Żołnowska, according to information published by the International Astronomical Union and Minor Planet Center.
