BICEP2, come 'ripulire' il segnale gravitazionale dalla polvere galattica

A Marzo di quest’anno, il gruppo di ricercatori che lavorano al programma scientifico BICEP2 riportarono possibili evidenze del passaggio delle onde gravitazionali primordiali, dopo aver analizzato i dati relativi alla polarizzazione della radiazione cosmica di fondo (post). Nonostante ciò, molti scienziati hanno sollevato tutta una serie di dubbi su una “scoperta” di tale portata poiché…

Yale Frontier Fields Workshop

Hubble and Spitzer have observed galaxies over 95% of the way back to the Big Bang, well into the epoch of reionization and close to the dawn of galaxy formation. The most distant galaxy candidates have been discovered using two complementary observational strategies: blank field observations such as CANDELS and the Ultra Deep Field; and…

Multimessenger Astronomy in the Era of PeV Neutrinos

The Joint Space-Science Institute -- a collaboration between the University of Maryland and NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center -- is pleased to be hosting a conference on Multimessenger Astronomy in the Era of PeV Neutrinos.  The theme is inspired by the IceCube discovery of a significant sample of high-energy neutrinos from astrophysical sources, but the conference…
