Very little magnetism in this odd couple

Nov 27, 2014

Very little magnetism in this odd couple The new observations of IGR J17544-2619 obtained by the NASA satellite NuSTAR have shed light onto some of the most obscure properties and behaviours of SFXTs. The unprecedented accuracy of these measurements has allowed the team led by Varun Bhalerao at the Inter University Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics (India), with the participation of INAF researchers Patrizia Romano and Lorenzo Natalucci, to see a cyclotron line in the X-ray spectrum of this source, the unambiguous signature of the interaction between the stellar matter and the magnetic field of the compact object that is attracting it.

Bignami honored for his latest book

May 29, 2012

Bignami honored for his latest book Giovanni Bignami, INAF's president, has recently received the "Enrico Fermi - Cecina" award for popular science with "Cosa ci resta da scoprire" (Mondadori), his latest book. The book is a journey through what is still left to discover in science, and through the innovations which could happen by 2062. The other finalist was Pietro Greco, scientific journalist and co-director of Scienzainrete, author of "I nipoti di Galileo" (Baldini&Castoldi)

Radioastronomy at the speed of light

May 28, 2012

Radioastronomy at the speed of light INAF’s radiotelescope at Noto, near Siracusa, plays a crucial role in European radioastronomy with its 32-meter dish, being one of the most southerly antennas in the European region. Since May 15, it is part of the international e-VLBI network. The VLBI (Very Long Baseline Interferometry).

The up-to-date list of open positions and job opportunities is available on the Italian website.
