Kraków invites you to participate in a cyclic international event, where cosmic science meets technology. The aims are to facilitate networking of people interested in space exploration, to promote and popularize scientific and industrial achievements, to inspire and to create new research directions concerning extraterrestrial environments. Show us what is your project/research. Meet a lot of…

Exploring Into Darkness

Exploring Into Darkness

WISH is a space science mission project whose primary goal is to reveal the first-generation galaxies in the early young universe. We launch a 1.5m-aperture telescope equipped with 0.5-degree-diameter wide-field NIR camera by 2020 in order to conduct ultra-deep and wide-area sky survey with the depth that cannot have been achieved by previous ground-based telescopes.…

From the Milky Way to Re-ionization

From the Milky Way to Re-ionization

This is the fifth in the series of Guillermo Haro Conferences organized by INAOE and AMC. The conference will be dedicated to the topic of Young Massive Star Clusters and their surrounding medium over a large range of scales from those in the Milky Way to those in the most distant galaxies. This topic is…

Exploring the dark sector of the Universe with supercomputers

L'Universo è composto dal 95% di energia scura e materia scura. Comprendere la fisica del cosiddetto "settore scuro" rappresenta la principale sfida della cosmologia moderna. Oggi, grazie a sofisticate simulazioni numeriche, possiamo iniziare a comprendere l'evoluzione dell'Universo primordiale e la formazione delle strutture cosmiche. The primary lens through which scientists look at the night sky…

Discovered a new type of black hole quasar-like object

E' noto che ogni galassia ospita nel suo nucleo un buco nero supermassiccio spesso circondato da un disco di accrescimento super brillante composto di gas a temperature elevate che dà luogo alla fenomenologia tipica dei quasar. Ora, un gruppo di ricercatori della Penn State University hanno individuato con grande sorpresa una nuova classe di quasar…
