Triceratops ‘Skull 21’ exhibition
The restoration of a Triceratops skull is the subject of an exhibition at the Science Centre Delft from October 3. The skull – dubbed ‘Skull 21’ - formed part of the collection at the Mineralogical & Geological Museum brought together by staff of the former faculty of Mining (now Geoscience & Engineering). The skull was damaged when it was transported from Wyoming (USA) to the Netherlands in 1950 and has now been restored to its former glory.

Help from an unexpected quarter: geosciences data techniques can help predict corona spread
An international team of scientists is studying the possibility of using data assimilation, a data technique from geosciences, to predict the spread of coronavirus and the efficacy of certain measures. TU Delft geoscientists on the team think that data assimilation might prove a useful tool for the RIVM epidemiologists. A paper on the subject has been submitted to scientific journal Foundations of Data Science.
