A scientist from Aberystwyth University has had an Antarctic glacier named after him.
Glasser Glacier takes it name from the university's Professor Neil Glasser, who works in the Department of Geography and Earth Sciences and is also director of its Institute of Geography, History, Politics and Psychology.
I am really honoured to have this glacier named after me. We spent seven weeks on fieldwork in this area of Antarctica in 2011. On all our maps and publications it is called ‘Un-named Glacier’ but it is great to know that from now on it will be known as Glasser Glacier!
Measuring around 1500 metres long and 500 metres wide, Glasser Glacier is on James Ross Island and flows westward from a large ice dome on Lachman Crags. The Antarctic Place-Names Committee named the glacier after Professor Glasser in recognition of the 'significant research' on Ulu Peninsula.

A very rare sea turtle has been rescued after it was washed up on a beach in Aberystwyth.
The Kemp’s ridley sea turtle is the world’s rarest marine turtle species and is officially classified as ‘critically endangered’ in the wild.
The creature was found on North Beach on Saturday. RSPCA staff say it was very lethargic and was also suspected to have septicemia.
It is now being treated at a special aquarium in Bristol.
I am still in shock about being able to have dealt with this beautiful rare species and so honoured. I still keep pinching myself!
RSPCA staff took the turtle to Bristol Aquarium, who were happy to take her in for rehabilitation as they have experience with caring for stranded sea turtles.
At the Aquarium the turtle will receive specialist vet checks and treatment. The turtle still has a very guarded prognosis but is now in expert care with brilliant facilities.
