Focus sulle onde gravitazionali

I risultati di Planck hanno aperto una nuova finestra verso lo studio delle primissime fasi iniziali della storia cosmica (post). Oggi, uno dei punti chiave per i cosmologi è quello di verificare sperimentalmente se l'inflazione cosmica sia avvenuta o meno. I prossimi dati di Planck, che saranno pubblicati l'anno prossimo, riguarderanno la polarizzazione della radiazione…

Locating Astrophysical Transients

Locating Astrophysical Transients

New generation wide-field instruments, especially SKA pathfinders in the radio regime, will detect a huge number of transient sources that can be followed-up by very long baseline interferometry (VLBI) at the highest possible angular resolution. Finding and localization of these, as well as discussing the science case and realization of high resolution observations in multi-wavelength…

Ice and Planet Formation

Ice and Planet Formation

This workshop in Lund focuses on ice(s) and planet formation. Astrophysical ice has become an increasingly popular topic in the past years, inspired and driven by new observations of ices and vapour in molecular clouds and protoplanetary discs, models of dust coagulation and planet formation where ice plays an important role and current and upcoming…

F.O.E. fifty-one ergs

F.O.E. fifty-one ergs

F.O.E. fifty-one ergs is an international workshop on the physics and observations of supernovae and supernova remnants The workshop is organized around 3 topics: Where do supernovae come from? How do they explode? What do they leave behind?

Black holes as ‘products’ of the Universe evolution

The maths underpinning Darwin's theory of natural selection could explain how the Universe may be 'designed' to make black holes. A new Oxford University research builds on the 'cosmological natural selection hypothesis', an idea first put forward in the 1990s to explain the apparent 'fine-tuning' of the Universe’s basic parameters to allow for the existence…
