PoreLab is a Norwegian Center of Excellence created in 2017 and situated at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim, and the University of Oslo (UiO). It focuses on the physics of porous media using experimental, theoretical and computational methods. It is led by six principal scientists from physics, chemistry and reservoir engineering.

Dust bunnies in space!

Together with the astronomer Jane X. Luu, Njord and PoreLab UiO professors Eirik Grude Flekkøy and Renaud Toussaint, may have identified the solar system’s largest dust bunny.   Illustration: PoreLab/UiO (left) og Wikipedia/CC BY-SA 4.0 (right). It is an interstellar object, travelling through our solar system, never to return, and was first observed from Hawaii in October 2017. It’s
