...within in our galaxy," said Julie McEnery, the project scientist for the mission at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. "Fermi continues to be an amazing engine for pulsar discoveries."
"Currently we lack re-supervision capacity and the doctoral-student pipeline is too narrow. We need to support reers who are capable of supervising postgraduate students, and to create appropriate incentives for students to remain in the system up to doctoral level. We have recently begun investing in emerging reers through postdoctoral fellowships in the Thuthuka programme, and re-career-advancement fellowships" she added. The Department of Science and Technology received a total of R6 470,2 billion from the National Treasury for the 2014/15 financial year
"Regulation is sometimes a precondition for the successful functioning of a market, and standard setting crucial," he said. "Look at the role standard setting played in the emergence of the mobile phone industry and the way my predecessors very astutely set standards that helped Vodafone in its early days."
