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.

Si chiama “X-ray Integral Field Unit” e sarà posta sul piano focale del telescopio spaziale Athena dell’Esa. Luigi Piro (Inaf): «Permetterà di misurare accuratamente energia dei fotoni osservati, grazie a un sensore innovativo basato sui microcalorimetri»

Blazar colto sul fatto: cronaca di un’osservazione

21/05/2019

Noemi Iacolina, ricercatrice dell’Asi di stanza al Sardinia Radio Telescope (Srt), racconta a Media Inaf lo studio di follow up – condotto con i radiotelescopi di Medicina e Srt – di un brillamento del blazar Pks 1830-211 osservato da Agile alla fine di marzo

Oceano su Plutone, sotto una “coperta” di gas

20/05/2019

Secondo uno studio pubblicato su Nature Geoscience, al di sotto della superficie ghiacciata del bacino Sputnik Planitia di Plutone potrebbe trovarsi un oceano allo stato liquido. Questo sembra possibile grazie alla presenza di uno strato di gas idrati che, in base alle simulazioni presentate nello studio, potrebbe impedirne il congelamento
