Great Sciency Stories from East Midlands Universities

BFTF has spent quite a bit of time recently going through the 2012 news archives of the Universities of Nottingham, Leicester, Sheffield and Loughborough to see what interesting sciency stuff they were up to in 2012.

It was a revelation.

From research on how black holes form (Leicester), to creating petrol from thin air (Loughborough), to reserach on the development of plant roots (Sheffield) and producionisation of a novel nano-particle production route (Nottingham), the research going on in the East Midlands is jaw-droppingly impressive.
