    It was considered the strongest evidence for the presence of ceratopsians (horned dinosaurs) outside Asia and North America. The discovery was even described in Nature. Scientists from the Polish Academy of Sciences, however, question this in their research, showing that the fossils belonged to a completely different group of dinosaurs.

    Polish algae experiment to be carried out on ISS

    The International Space Station will be the staging area for an experiment with algae that naturally live near volcanoes. The experiment has been developed by a start-up founded by a doctoral candidate from the University of Warsaw. Algae are universal organisms that could be used in the future to produce oxygen for astronauts and perform other important tasks, scientists say.

Galvanization like printing - coatings for solar cells and more

A new method of coating materials with thin layers in a way that resembles printing has been developed at the Jagiellonian University. It requires a minimal amount of chemical materials and can accelerate the development of 3rd generation organic solar cells.
