So as 2013 comes to a close I thought it might be a good idea to do a top 10 list for UP, looking at just a few of the highlights and important things we’ve been involved in during the year and give some hints of what's coming UP in 2014.
The Science & SciLIfeLab Prize for young Scientists awards ceremony was held at The Grand Hotel Stockholm, yesterday December 9th. Four young scientists were recognised during the ceremony.
As an Englishman living in Stockholm, I’ve always thought of the city as being north – but what did I know. Now I've travelled really, really, north. I've come to the pretty little town of Arjeplog, in Swedish Lapland just under the polar circle. Population 1,977.
At this time of year sunrise is 9.53 AM and if you want to enjoy it you better get a quick walk in whilst it’s up there, as it sets again at 1.25pm. I say quick because apart from the limited daylight, it’s also minus 12C outside. I’m assured by locals however that even this is balmy compared to the minus 45C it can get down to.
