Introduction

We are used to seeing spectacular astronomical images in the press and on the internet. This course gives an in-depth introduction to two of the most important instruments used to create these images and explore the science behind them – telescopes and spectographs.

This course is drawn from the preparatory work for the practical residential school at the Observatori Astronomic de Mallorca. The course image shows a student at work in one of the telescope domes at the Observatori.

7.4 Proteomics

Traditionally, the study of the biochemistry or structure of a protein necessitated its purification to a high degree. The development of protocols for cloning, manipulation and expression of genes greatly facilitated this kind of study, as will be clear to you from the previous section. In recent years, a number of high-throughput techniques have, to an extent, obviated traditional approaches and permit simultaneous analysis of all the expressed proteins in a cell or organism, known as the <

2 Solar thermal energy

Solar heating of trapped air, water and solids has been used for centuries, but modern architectural design can enhance all three effects for space heating, hot water supply and heat storage. Such passive solar heating relies on short-wave radiation being absorbed by materials so that they heat up and then slowly re-emit long-wave radiation. The most obvious example is inside a greenhouse, where solar radiation that passes through the glass heats the inside air to temperatures well abo
