The Space activities department was established by the INAF administrative advisory panel on 10th February 2005, and was conceived to create the conditions necessary for the development of space-based  research programs in a multi-national context.

Its main activities are:

- monitoring of INAF's space programs;
- providing a link between ASI and INAF's scientific community;
- providing support for the initialisation of scientific activity of common interest via a "negotiating table" between ASI and INAF;
- giving support to personnel during all successive phases of negotiation with ASI (draft agreements, progress and final meetings);
- providing a link and support for ongoing space activities involving INAF and universities;
- giving support to the management of the ASI Science Data Centre;
- giving management support to engineering and product assurance of programs that involve INAF institutes;
- reporting, where appropriate, to the INAF CDA and CS on progress in the various areas.

Gaia draws a new map of the galactic spirals An international team led by researchers of the the Italian National Institute for Astrophysics (INAF) has compiled the most detailed map yet of the Milky Way’s spiral structure within about 16,000 light years from the Sun, by making use of the position and brightness of around 600,000 young stars measured by Gaia, the European Space Agency’s star surveyor

The morphology of the X-ray afterglows and of the jetted GeV emission in long gamma-ray bursts

May 12, 2021

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
