III Italy-Ukraine Scientific Meeting “Are We Alone in the Universe?”

A Virtual Conference on the Occasion of the Italian Research Day in the World

On June 9-11, 2020, the III Italy-Ukraine Conference celebrating the Italian Research Day in the World will be held, this year in a webinar format due to the COVID-19 emergency that made traveling impossible.

Organized at the initiative of the Embassy of Italy to Ukraine (Kyiv), V. N. Karazin Kharkiv National University (Ukraine), and INAF — National Institute of Astrophysics (Italy), the web meeting deals with the question: “Are We Alone in the Universe?”, a very topical issue addressed in different aspects: scientific, technological, astrophysical, philosophical, sociological, legal, historical, biological, futurological, theological, and many more.

16:00-17:45 Italian time or 17:00-18:45 Ukrainian time

The conference can be accessed at the following link.

The scientific reports by qualified specialists will be delivered with subtitles in Italian, Ukrainian, and English.

The morphology of the X-ray afterglows and of the jetted GeV emission in long gamma-ray bursts In a new article published in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, an ICRA-ICRANet research team (some of them INAF associates) sheds light on the mass and spin of stellar-mass BHs from an extensive analysis of long-duration GRBs

The best place and time to live in the Milky Way

Mar 05, 2021

The best place and time to live in the Milky Way More than 6 billion years ago, the outskirts of the Milky Way were the safest places for the development of possible life forms, sheltered from the most violent explosions in the universe: gamma-ray bursts and supernovae. This is demonstrated by a new study, led by researchers from INAF and the University of Insubria in Italy, which investigates the incidence of these events throughout the evolution of our galaxy

Magnetic anomalies on the young craters of Mercury
