The long journey of human missions to Mars and back to Earth

The Embassy of Italy, in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute in Sydney and the Australian Academy of Science, invites you to an Italian Night with Five Southern Stars!

The Embassy of Italy, in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute in Sydney and the Australian Academy of Science, invites you to an Italian Night with Five Southern Stars!

Five amazing scientists will discuss the challenges of travelling across space, preparing for human missions to Mars, and what we can learn for life and sustainability on Earth.

Ambassador of Italy to Australia H.E. Francesca Tardioli will open the event.

The event panel will be moderated by Anna-Maria Arabia, Chief Executive of the Australian Academy of Science, Anna Maria Fioretti, Science Attaché at the Embassy of Italy, and Lillo Guarneri, Director of the Italian Cultural Institute in Sydney.

The panel

Prof. Elisabetta Barberio Not an empty Space: Cosmic Radiation and Dark Matter

Associate Professor Susanna Guatelli Protecting astronauts from the health hazards of the harsh space radiation environment: reality and simulation

Dr Stefania Peracchi Silicon mushroom: an innovative, miniaturised device for radiation protection of astronauts

Dr Eduardo Trifoni Manned entry to Mars and re-entry to Earth: an open engineering challenge

Dr Federica TurcoInterplanetary livestock: how insects could be our best resource on and away from our planet.

Free event - online and in-person attendance available. Light refreshments and a selection of Italian wines inlcuded for in-person attendees.

Radio evidence of a minor merger in the Shapley supercluster

Jan 17, 2022

Radio evidence of a minor merger in the Shapley supercluster A group of radio astronomers led by INAF has conducted a multi-frequency and multi-band study of the Shapley Supercluster, where the formation of large structures is ongoing at the present cosmological age. Radio astronomers have discovered a radio emission that acts as a "bridge" between a cluster of galaxies and a group of galaxies

Multiwavelength snapshot of a repeating fast radio burst With a multiwavelength campaign, a group of astronomers led by the Italian National Institute for Astrophysics (INAF) studied a repeating fast radio burst (FRB). The object FRB20201124A, discovered in November 2020, reactivated in March 2021, emitting a series of radio bursts

Classifying Seyfert Galaxies with Deep Learning

Sep 28, 2021

Classifying Seyfert Galaxies with Deep Learning Scientist uses deep learning to identify low luminous Seyfert 1.9 galaxies that are usually missed by human inspection among ten thousands of spectra. These results are published in the Astrophysical Journal Supplement Series by Yen Chen Chen, in the department of physics at Sapienza University of Rome and ICRANet
