Sep. 2013 - Boulby Cosmic rays & Carbon Capture project features at the British Science Festival.

Aug. 2013: To celebrate the opening of the Boulby International Subsurface Astrobiology laboratory (BISAL) the BBC's Rebecca Morelle spent the day underground discovering all about studies of life in Boulby salts, and how that links to the search for life on Mars and beyond. Check out our new Youtube channel for the BBC Breakfast news item and the BBC website for the web article.

Apr. 2013: On April 24 2013 Boulby hosted a workshop in collaboration with the UK Centre for Astrobiology: From Outer Space to Mining. Bringing together organisations interested in developing space exploration technology and mining companies, the workshop's objective was to enhance technology transfer from space exploration to solving Earth-based problems.

Dec. 2012: STFC & Boulby hosted the ASPERA-funded multidisciplinary deep underground science workshop 'Underground Synergies With AstroParticle Physics' - 18th/19th Dec 2012 in Durham. See the conference website for more information

Nov. 2012: The UK Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) have announced funding for a collaborative study to explore the development of cosmic ray muon detection technology for deep geological structure mapping for Carbon Capture and Storage sites. Boulby is playing an important role in this work.
