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.

Nevicano stelle

13/12/2018

Come ogni anno, nel periodo che va dal 3 al 19 dicembre si ripete il fenomeno delle Geminidi, lo sciame meteorico causato dal passaggio dell’asteroide 3200 Phaethon. Il picco del fenomeno sarà questa notte: una vera e propria pioggia di stelle – anzi nevicata, viste le temperature. Anche Google ha voluto ricordare questo suggestivo fenomeno dedicandogli il doodle di oggi

Dna spaziale, trovato un pezzo mancante

13/12/2018

Un gruppo internazionale di astronomi guidato da Víctor M. Rivilla dell’Inaf di Arcetri (Firenze) ha scoperto l’abbondante presenza, nello spazio interstellare, dell’isomero Z della cianometanimina – considerata un precursore dell’adenina

BepiColombo: occhi aperti, aspettando Mercurio

12/12/2018

Acceso con successo lo strumento Simbio-Sys, gli "occhi" della sonda BepiColombo che scandaglieranno con una accuratezza senza precedenti la superficie di Mercurio. Gabriele Cremonese, dell'Inaf e Pi di Simbio-Sys: «È stata una grande soddisfazione vedere tutti e tre i componenti accendersi e rispondere ai nostri comandi, con una certa suspence dovuta ai due minuti luce necessari per avere una risposta ogni volta che interrogavamo lo strumento»
