Joint Call for Proposals, 2013B

To the Astronomical Communities of Italy and the Nordic Countries Joint Call for Proposals, 2013B

Following the recommendations to ASTRONET on the future use of Europe's 2-4m telescopes as presented in the ETSRC report (see here), INAF andNOTSA, owners of the TNG and NOT telescopes on La Palma, Canary Islands, have agreed to enter into a closer collaboration. As an initial step toward a more comprehensive integration, an agreement has been signed for common use of facilities and services at their offices which are now located next to each other in San Antonio on La Palma.

Here we offer observing time at both telescopes for the two communities in a joint call for proposals for the coming semester 2013B (AOT28 in TNG nomenclature; Period 48 in NOT nomenclature). Note that the 2013B semester will start on the 1st of September for TNG and on the 1st of October for NOT.

There will be:

• 10 nights at TNG open for Nordic proposals

• 20 nights at NOT open for Italian proposals

Information on the available instrumentation can be found at

www.tng.iac.es/instruments/

and at

www.not.iac.es/instruments/.

The nationality of a given proposal will be determined by the nationality of the PI (provided at least 50% of PI+CoIs are Italian and/or Nordic).

Applications for each telescope should use the proposal form for the telescope they are applying for, following the instructions supplied at

www.tng.iac.es/submit.html

and at

www.not.iac.es/observing/proposals/P48/

The deadline for the submission of proposals is 12 UT on the 2nd of May 2013.

Proposals will be evaluated by the relevant telescope committee (TAC for TNG and OPC for NOT). Joint ‘Italo-Nordic’ proposals and/or proposals using both telescopes are encouraged.

In case both telescopes are requested, proposals to each telescope should be submitted, where in principle the scientific justification will be the same in both forms, and only the technical justification relevant for the specific telescope is given in each proposal separately.

It is our intention to expand this system of offering observing time at both telescopes in future semesters. We hope that this announcement will mark the begin of a scientific synergy between our communities, and lead to a further enhancement in the scientific productivity of both telescopes.

Stesse stelle, stesso ciclo?

22/09/2017

Ben poco si sa sulla periodicità dell’attività coronale delle stelle, osservabile ai raggi X: mancano infatti osservazioni di stelle a lungo termine in banda X. Ma c'è un'eccezione: il monitoraggio, lungo ben 15 anni, della stella HD 81809, realizzato con XMM/Newton

Eruzione solare “fotobomba” la cometa

22/09/2017

La “fotografia” che vale una vita… e proprio in quel momento qualcuno si mette in mezzo: tre anni fa, una bolla di plasma solare ha disturbato l’irripetibile osservazione del passaggio di una cometa vicinissima a Marte. Ma c’è qualcosa da imparare anche da questo, come dimostra un nuovo studio presentato al Congresso europeo di scienze planetarie, in corso a Riga

L’Esa punta in alto: l’obiettivo è la Luna

22/09/2017

Il futuro è il nostro satellite naturale, che dopo anni di esplorazioni nasconde ancora molti misteri. La Luna potrebbe essere usata come un trampolino di lancio verso il futuro dell'esplorazione dello spazio profondo, magari con equipaggi umani
