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.

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.

Così si oscurò Betelgeuse

13/08/2020

Cosa fece impallidire per mesi, dal novembre 2019 all’aprile 2020, una fra le stelle più brillanti del cielo? Una possibile risposta arriva ora da una lunga campagna osservativa condotta in banda ultravioletta con il telescopio spaziale Hubble: la responsabile fu una nube di polvere prodotta a seguito di un’imponente emissione di plasma dalla stella stessa

E alla fine esplosero le nane nere

13/08/2020

Il fisico Matt Caplan dell'Università dell'Illinois propone sulle pagine di Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society una nuova teoria, alternativa allo spegnimento lento e sommesso, su quello che sarà – tra innumerevoli miliardi di anni – l’ultimo atto del cosmo. «Uno spettacolo che non potrà comunque avere spettatori», commenta Massimo Della Valle dell’Inaf di Napoli

Molto giovane, incredibilmente ordinata

12/08/2020

Trovare una galassia così “composta“ a 12 miliardi di anni luce da noi è stata una grande sorpresa. Visto da Alma grazie a una lente gravitazionale, il suo è il disco galattico più ordinato mai osservato nell’universo primordiale. A firmare l’articolo, uscito oggi su Nature, un team guidato da una dottoranda del Max Planck originaria del Salento, Francesca Rizzo
