During the recent Rio+20 conference climate change was hotly debated but the people gathering the data remained behind the curtains. The University Post talks to one of Copenhagen's very own researchers about life in the field, the dangers, the politics and the boredom of living in the Arctic circle
The Rio +20 Earth Summit was not a total failure, according to professor and leader of UCPH's Sustainability Science Center Katherine Richardson. She talked to the University Post about the future of sustainability and how scientists can compete with lobbyists
Greenland’s glaciers can recuperate within a short time frame if temperatures drop, shows research from the University of Copenhagen. 80-year-old photographs, discovered in a basement archive, prove that the ice was actually melting faster then, than it is now. See some of the old photos right here
Crazy costumes, smart inside jokes and even some tricky computer science 'code poetry' were all on offer at the DIKU revue
The Revue season at the University of Copenhagen isn't over yet, and this time around we bring you photos from DIKU, the department of computer science. The revue was complete with crazy costumes, smart inside jokes and even some tricky computer science 'code poetry' so much so that tickets to this year's show sold out in just 2.5 hours.
Click through our photo gallery to see for yourself just what all the fuss was about.

From 24 April until 23 December, the Zoological Museum will host a new exhibit on spiders. Our Danish correspondent went to check out the sites and thrills of the exhibition while documenting the multitude of installations on offer.
The exhibit of course, features the real live versions of the animals, including the world's largest spider, but also allows visitors to see artistic representations of these eight-legged creatures.
More information about the exhibit can also be found in our article.
