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)."

Così si oscurò Betelgeuse

Aug 13, 2020

Cosa fece impallidire per mesi, dal novembre 2019 all’aprile 2020, una fra le stelle più brillanti del cielo? Una possibile risposta arriva ora da una lunga campagna osservativa condotta in banda ultravioletta con il telescopio spaziale Hubble: la responsabile fu una nube di polvere prodotta a seguito di un’imponente emissione di plasma dalla stella stessa

E alla fine esplosero le nane nere

Aug 13, 2020

Il fisico Matt Caplan dell'Università dell'Illinois propone sulle pagine di Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society una nuova teoria, alternativa allo spegnimento lento e sommesso, su quello che sarà – tra innumerevoli miliardi di anni – l’ultimo atto del cosmo. «Uno spettacolo che non potrà comunque avere spettatori», commenta Massimo Della Valle dell’Inaf di Napoli

Molto giovane, incredibilmente ordinata

Aug 12, 2020

Trovare una galassia così “composta“ a 12 miliardi di anni luce da noi è stata una grande sorpresa. Visto da Alma grazie a una lente gravitazionale, il suo è il disco galattico più ordinato mai osservato nell’universo primordiale. A firmare l’articolo, uscito oggi su Nature, un team guidato da una dottoranda del Max Planck originaria del Salento, Francesca Rizzo
