OPTICON Call for Proposals for semester 2013A and International School of Astrophysics "Francesco Lucchin"

Call for Proposals to be supported via the OPTICON Trans-National Access programme in semester 2013A including observing nights available at Telescopio Nazionale Galileo (TNG). International School of Astrophysics "Francesco Lucchin" to be held in Vulcano – Aeolian Islands (Italy) in September 17-22, 2012.

OPTICON Call for Proposals for semester 2013A

 

With the new OPTICON contract expected to run until 2016, its Trans-National Access programme continues towards integration and coordination of the participating telescopes, including the Telescopio Nazionale Galileo (TNG). As part of this move, the funding for the programme has been pooled, and the proposals for OPTICON time at all the telescopes are being reviewed together by a single international Time Allocation Committee (TAC) to ensure network-wide competition and uniform review criteria.

The call for observing time at night time telescopes supported by the OPTICON Trans-National Access will close at exactly 1200 UT on 2nd September 2012 and no requests for late submissions will be accepted. The semester is centred on February 2013 to July 2013, but there are small variations at some telescopes to accommodate their normal semesters and maximise scheduling flexibility.

For more information please refer to OPTICON webpage.

 

International School of Astrophysics "Francesco Lucchin" (XII Cycle, II Course)

 

The next Course of the Internationa School of Astrophysics "Francesco Lucchin" to be held in Vulcano – Aeolian Islands (Italy) in September 17-22, 2012 will discuss the topics:

- The Sun: a Plasma Physics Laboratory (Chair: Francesca Zuccarello)

- Formation of the Solar System: clues from exploration (Chair: Priscilla Cerroni).

 

Information concerning this event can be found at the School web page.

 

The deadline for the registration has been postponed to 10th August 2012. Participants should register to the school by filling the on-line registration form. For practical reasons the maximum number of participants will be 50. In case more people apply, priority will be given to PhD students. Participants will have to confirm by 10th August 2012 that they will attend the school. The deadline for the hotel booking is 10th August 2012. A number of grants will be available to partially cover the expences: applicants have to mark the specific field in the registration form. Note that priority for the grant assignment will be given to applicants with earlier registration date.

Se 4,2 milioni di chilometri vi sembran pochi

23/01/2018

Nella notte del 4 febbraio prossimo un asteroide del diametro di circa 500 metri raggiungerà la minima distanza dalla Terra, a oltre dieci volte lo spazio che ci separa dalla Luna. Rischio zero per impatti o interazioni con il nostro ambiente planetario. Facilità di osservazione? Molto bassa, la sua luminosità non lo renderà visibile ad occhio nudo

Viaggio nel tempo a bordo della polvere di stelle

Senza muoversi dal loro laboratorio, analizzando gli isotopi di alcune meteoriti, un team di ricercatori della Carnegie University è tornato indietro di 4,6 miliardi di anni per studiare in quanto tempo si formino i grani di polvere dopo le violente esplosioni di stelle

Braccia rubate alla materia oscura

Per spiegare come possano le braccia delle galassie a spirale Infrangere la terza legge di Keplero si ipotizzano la dark matter o una correzione della seconda legge di Newton. Un team internazionale composto da ricercatori dell'Isc-Cnr e del Laboratoire de Physique Nucleaire et de Hautes Energies di Parigi apre la strada a ipotesi diverse
