CALL FOR PROPOSAL TNG & REM

also featuring HAN-GTO, PAOLO and first NOTTIME AOT 28 (2013B) is now open for proposals Applications for observing time for the period September 1st, 2013 - February 28th, 2014 are solicited and should be submitted by Friday 3rd May, 2013, 13:00 UT

DUE TO THE SITUATION OF THIS SEMESTER, TNG TIME IS (ALMOST) COMPLETELY ALREADY AWARDED, TO GUARANTEED OBSERVERS AND LONG TERM, ONGOING PROGRAMS.

2014A/B AND 2015A SEMESTERS WILL BE SIMILARLY AFFECTED.

THEREFORE, FOR THIS SEMESTER, WE CAN OFFER A LIMITED AMOUNT OF NIGHTS, STARTING WITH 10 AVAILABLE NIGHTS, TO WHICH FEW MORE CAN BE ADDED DEPENDING ON NON ASSIGNED NIGHTS FROM EXTERNAL TACS OR SCHEDULING CONSTRAINTS.

THE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED MODE IS SERVICE, WHERE TNG STAFF ASTRONOMERS WILL PERFORM THE OBSERVATIONS IN THE SCHEDULED NIGHTS. THE QUEING MODE IS NOT OFFERED, DUE TO ITS INTRINSIC SCARSE EFFICIENCY WITH FEW AVAILABLE NIGHTS.

WE WILL BE ACCEPTING DDT-LIKE PROPOSAL DURING THE WHOLE SEMESTER, WHICH WILL BE JUDGED IN FEW DAYS BY TNG STAFF AND INAF-TAC. SERVICE MODE WILL BE THE ONLY MODALITY FOR THESE OBSERVATIONS.

TNG is a 3.58m optical/infrared telescope located at Roque de Los Muchachos Observatory in the island of La Palma (Canary Island). Its primary mirror is corrected by Active Optics and it is equipped with instruments for imaging and spectroscopy, spanning the optical and near infrared wavelengths range.

REM is a 60 cm robotic telescope located at La Silla ESO site (Chile) which can observe simultaneously with a visible and an infrared camera. The observations will be carried out in unmanned, queuing mode. INAF-TAC will allocate 1000 hours of observations.

Application forms and detailed instructions can be downloaded from

the TNG web pages ( http://www.tng.iac.es/submit.html).

LONG TERM PROGRAMS: PIs of ongoing long term programs shall not send a new proposal.

Instead, they should send to the TAC (via an e-mail to director@tng.iac.es) a conveniently detailed progress report.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE SEMESTER HAS SHIFTED BY ONE MONTH, starting 1st September; correspondingly the deadline has ben postponed.

All proposals will be judged strictly on their scientific merit.

La strana coppia da record

26/10/2020

Un gruppo di ricerca internazionale guidato dal Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics ha identificato una misteriosa sorgente di raggi gamma. Si tratta di un sistema binario da record: una pesante stella di neutroni con una compagna di massa molto bassa a solo 1.3 volte la distanza Terra-Luna, che le orbita attorno in 75 minuti, a una velocità di oltre 700 chilometri al secondo. Tutti i dettagli su ApJ Letters

L’ingrediente segreto dei potenti getti dei quasar

26/10/2020

Perché alcuni buchi neri supermassicci emettono getti di materia di grande potenza e altri no? Una possibile risposta arriva da uno studio condotto su oltre 700 quasar con Chandra, Xmm-Newton, Rosat, il Very Large Array e la Sloan Digital Sky Survey

Osiris-Rex, il raccolto è andato bene. Forse troppo

24/10/2020

Le prime immagini inviate a Terra mostrano una perdita di materiale dalla testa raccogli-campioni, che non si è chiusa in modo corretto. Segno che sicuramente polvere e rocce sono state raccolte, pare ben più dei 60 grammi indicati come obiettivo minimo. Ma una parte è già fuoriuscita, e la Nasa sta correndo ai ripari per mettere in salvo al più presto quel che resta del prezioso carico
