Imperial College London – Science for Humanity

We were founded in 1907 with a mission ‘To be useful’ – but we know that before anyone can usefully change something, they first need to understand it. That’s what we do here: We use science to try to understand more of the universe and improve the lives of more people in it. Join us at Imperial – a place to ask your questions. And to get closer to the answers, together.
