Space Junk - We take out the trash
End-of-life satellites and other space junk left in orbit constitute a rapidly growing problem and have attracted great political attention because space junk is a threat to communications and national security. Space junk is a threat to the future use of space because of the danger of collisions between active satellites and disused ones abandoned in space. Researchers from Aalborg University Esbjerg have invented a simple self-expanding construction which will allow them to remove some of this space junk in the future.
CADScor® System from Acarix: Listening to find blood clots
While working on a master’s thesis, two students and their supervisor at the Department for Health Science and Technology invented a method to detect whether or not a patient is at risk of getting a blood clot. Ever since, the Danish electronics company Acarix has been working to refine the principles of this ground-breaking invention with the objective to detect the risk of a blood clot within a few minutes.
