    Market-ready: Electric propulsion systems 'made in Germany'

    Electric propulsion systems are considered to be particularly promising space technology. Although they produce less thrust, their fuel efficiency is significantly higher than that of conventional chemical engines. Satellites can thus be made considerably lighter and more durable. Additionally, the payload capacity can be increased because of the lower fuel mass needed.

    The riddle of male pregnancy

    20 September 2017/Kiel. Cell division, laying eggs, viviparity – nature knows different ways to reproduction. A unique one is that of seahorses and pipefishes. In this fish family the males bear the offspring until birth. What male pregnancy can tell us about the evolution of sex roles and parental care in general, is investigated by evolutionary biologist Dr. Olivia Roth from the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel. The European Research Council has now awarded her with a "Starting Grant" of EUR 1.5 million over a period of five years.
