Following a debate that took place during the 131st General Assembly of the Polish Academy of Sciences, the members of the Academy adopted a position statement on the issue of migration.

„Academia” special issue 2015: Newcomers to the National Home

”Nationalist ideologies, depicting their countries as being nation-states, frequently fail to consider the quite numerous “admixtures” that occurred during the course of long-ongoing migrations. Ideologies touting the notion of “racial purity” or raising such slogans as “Poland for the Poles,” “a true Poland of true Poles,” etc. are senseless, not only because of their wickedness but in terms of t

Turning in the Widening Gyre

Discs: these round, flattened objects have been widely associated with athletics competitions since the Antiquity. Thrown correctly, they spin through the air, and the low friction around them means they can travel a long way. But that’s not why discs are important in contemporary astrophysics – here we are interested in the energy they give off

„Academia” special issue 2015: Between Migration and Integration

Poland has not experienced any serious problems with immigration or immigrants. At the same time, the position adopted by public opinion and most politicians, which has been shaped by the media, is often very radical. It is likely impossible for that state of affairs to be changed quickly, although that does not mean that we cannot talk about migrations differently than we have to date.

Hunting for the Highest Energies

In the early 21st century, modern ground-based very-high-energy gamma-ray observatories have ushered in a new era of astronomy. The number of known gamma-ray sources increased from the handful detected prior to 2002 to more than 150 a decade later.
