The third issue of the Paolo Farinella Prize

The third issue of the Paolo Farinella Prize is devoted to planetary science and specifically for studies on the collisional processes in the Solar System, which was one of the major research interest in Paolo’s career. The award ceremony will be hosted by the European Planetary Science Congress (EPSC) meeting in London, UK (8th to 13th of September 2013)."

"To honor the memory and the outstanding figure of Paolo Farinella (1953-2000), an extraordinary scientist and person, a prize has been established in recognition of significant contributions given in the fields of interest of Paolo, which span from planetary sciences to space geodesy, fundamental physics, science popularization, and security in space, weapons control and disarmament. The prize has been proposed during the "International Workshop on Paolo Farinella the scientist and the man", held in Pisa in 2010, and is supported by the University of Pisa and by IAPS-INAF (Rome). The first “Paolo Farinella Prize” was awarded in 2011 to William Bottke, for his contribution to the field of "physics and dynamics of small solar system bodies". In 2012, the Prize was awarded to John Chambers, for his contribution to the field of "formation and early evolution of the solar system ". The third issue of the Paolo Farinella Prize is devoted to planetary science and specifically for studies on the collisional processes in the Solar System, which was one of the major research interest in Paolo’s career. The award ceremony will be hosted by the European Planetary Science Congress (EPSC) meeting in London, UK (8th to 13th of September 2013)."

Come è già accaduto con InSight, la missione Mars 2020 dà molta importanza agli appassionati di Marte e porterà con sé 3 microchip con ben 10,9 milioni di nomi

Variabili cataclismiche come farfalle nello spazio

Mar 27, 2020

Un nuovo studio basato su massicce simulazioni al computer supporta le previsioni di 35 anni fa sulle binarie cataclismiche, proponendo una teoria unificata per queste stelle e mostrando che le nove osservabili sono solo la punta dell'iceberg. Tutti i dettagli su Nature Astronomy

Fuga dal pianeta rovesciato

Mar 27, 2020

In un recente studio pubblicato su Geophysical Research Letters i ricercatori hanno scoperto che, al momento del flyby del Voyager 2 avvenuto il 24 gennaio 1986, nella coda della magnetosfera di Urano c'era un plasmoide – formato in gran parte da idrogeno ionizzato – in fuga dal pianeta. Si tratta della prima rilevazione di un plasmoide nella magnetosfera di un gigante ghiacciato e rappresenta, per Urano, un importante meccanismo per la perdita dell'atmosfera
