Big Bang Theory - Gravitiational Waves Detected


There's no way for us to know exactly what happened some 13.8 billion years ago, when our universe burst onto the scene. But scientists announced Monday a breakthrough in understanding how our world as we know it came to be.

If the discovery holds up to scrutiny, it's evidence of how the universe rapidly expanded less than a trillionth of a second after the Big Bang.

Disposal of Radioactive Substances


The CDETB Curriculum Development Unit on behalf of DES and on the recommendation of RPII is establishing an inventory of radioactive materials in all Post Primary Schools. All schools whether of not they have radioactive materials should log on and complete this on-line survey using the password disactive13 as soon as possible. This opportunity to have radioactive materials removed will be available for a limited period only. Any school not wishing to dispose of their radioactive materials under this DES initiative will be obliged, due to the enforcement of EU Council Directive 2011/70/EURATOM, to pay from their own funds more onerous disposal charges.
