On Thursday, Farah Alibay helped make history on another planet as part of the group at NASA's mission control centre helping to land the Mars rover. Not that it was easy to get there, says the 33-year-old, and she's not only talking about the delicate process of maneuvering the rover through the Martian atmosphere - "seven minutes of terror," as she calls it - to land safely on the Red Planet. "It was incredible," Alibay told CTV News about the moment of landing. "I was freaking out." Nasa Missions, Mission Control, Red Planet, The Martian, Farah, Montreal, Landing, Thursday

Girls and boys have always grown up with cultural and societal stereotypes. Despite the unparalleled access to opportunities that young women have today, many are still absorbing strong messages about how they should look, act and be. For girls, many of the most powerful influences come from the media, but young girls could find relief among the real people in their lives. Social media has changed the game, requiring educators and parents to also change strategies to help girls...

Ashleigh Dick will graduate this week with a Bachelor of Engineering (hons) in Environmental Engineering. Hailing from Warkworth, she is passionate about protecting the environment and believes we should take a holistic view of society to be effective at helping the planet survive. “As an environmental engineer, I believe we need to look more holistically at society, through the lens of poverty and education, to truly affect change for the environment.” Bachelor Of Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Tomorrow Will Be Better, Poverty, Dick, Innovation, Effective

This article is part of an ongoing series called Climate Lessons, where scientists explain what their research has taught them about climate change. Shalini Divya, MacDiarmid Institute researcher and PhD student at Victoria University of Wellington, explains why she is on a mission to find new materials to make rechargeable batteries more sustainable. When I heard a few weeks ago that the Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to the pioneers of lithium-ion battery research, I wondered...

At the centre of Rosalind Franklin’s tombstone in London’s Willesden Jewish Cemetery is the word “scientist”. This is followed by the inscription, “Her research and discoveries on viruses remain of lasting benefit to mankind.” As one of the twentieth century’s pre-eminent scientists, Franklin’s work has benefited all of humanity.
