UPC research news
  • UPC students hunt muons in stratosphere to test theory of relativity
    Within the framework of the European REXUS/BEXUS programme, a group of five students from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) has been selected to design and carry out an experiment in the stratosphere with the aim of testing Einstein’s special theory of relativity. The experiment will involve studying muons, elementary particles present in the atmosphere. The team is the youngest one participating in the programme (and the only one from Spain). Contributions to help fund the project can be made until 8 June at http://igg.me/at/gocadmus.
  • A device with mobile games and remote medical monitoring for at-home pelvic floor rehabilitation
    As part of the European WOMEN-UP project, in September the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya and the Hospital Clínic de Barcelona (Spain), along with the Academic Medical Center (the Netherlands) and Kuopio University Hospital (Finland), will carry out the clinical trial of a system designed to improve pelvic floor muscle training, a recommended treatment to prevent or treat urinary incontinence. This technological solution incorporates serious games for mobile phones that are driven by muscle movement and remote medical monitoring through a web platform.
  • UPC students launch balloon into stratosphere with drawings made by children at Sant Joan de Déu Hospital
    On Saturday, 4 March at 11 a.m. local time, a team of 20 students of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) launched a high-altitude balloon from Seròs, in the Catalan province of Lleida. On board was a very special payload: 21 drawings made by children being treated at Sant Joan de Déu Hospital in Barcelona. The balloon, which reached an altitude of over 25,000 m, was equipped with three cameras that took photographs of works created by the children, with the curve of the earth, the stars and the sun as a backdrop. Secondary school students in Seròs (in the county of Segrià) attended the launch, and the children and their families were able to follow the progress of the mission live at the hospital.
