The nuclear mirage

Global warming lustfully feeds the desires and proposals of those who, as if in a mirage, see nuclear energy as a solution.

Text - food and population increase

Will science feed us all?

These are just a few examples of how an increase in the generation of energy and food, per se, might not address the needs of the population which is in fact still growing.


The energy crossroads

Energy is the blood that moves today’s society and is one of the factors that has decisively contributed to improving humanity’s quality of life. This paper addresses the potential challenges and opportunities in the development of global energy systems, emphasising how deeply interconnected the energy and climate debates are.


Science and the challenges of our time

Adults and older people have most likely always wondered how the young will manage to survive in the world they are left with, and at this point in history, this is a central question in our debates. In order to resolve it, we must resort to one of the main tools we have devised to try to understand the world we live in, the one we call science.


A mysterious universe

Understanding the nature of the main constituents of the universe is crucial to obtain a precise description of the way in which it reached its present state.


Violent universe

We see the sky and admire its regularity and stability, its apparent immutability. We have always done so; it does not come as a surprise, since humans have always been startled by any change in the sky, associating it with omens or the mood swings of gods. At that time, they might call these changes «new stars», even if they were, for example, a supernova explosion, as in the case of Tycho’s supernova in the sixteenth century.
