RICAP13 on Astro-Particle Physics

RICAP13 on Astro-Particle Physics

RICAP-13 will be the fourth edition of the RICAP Conference. The acronym stands for Roma International Conference on Astro-Particle physics, the Conference is entirely dedicated to the study of high energy cosmic rays and it is organized by the three public Universities of Roma (University “Roma Tre”, University “La Sapienza” and University “Tor Vergata”). These…

Forti indizi di materia scura ‘leggera’ nel centro galattico

C'è una strana 'emissione' nel centro galattico ed esistono forti evidenze che si tratti di materia scura 'leggera' che sta per esaurirsi. Allo stesso tempo, alcuni rivelatori sotterranei ultra sensibili stanno cercando degli indizi sull'esistenza di particelle simili. La maggior parte dei teorici ritiene che le WIMPs siano le particelle più probabili che compongono la materia scura…

STARS 2013 e SMFNS 2013

The events are the second and third in a series of meetings gathering scientists working on astroparticle physics, cosmology, gravitation, nuclear physics, and related fields. As in previous years, the meeting sessions will consist of invited and contributed talks and will cover recent developments in the following topics: STARS2013 - New phenomena and new states of…

CDMS-II, evidence of wimpy dark matter?

Physicists operating an experiment located half a mile underground in Minnesota reported this weekend that they have found possible hints of dark-matter particles. The Cryogenic Dark Matter Search experiment has detected three events with the characteristics expected of dark matter particles, MIT graduate student Kevin McCarthy reported at the American Physical Society meeting in Denver on April 13. “There’s a…

The Modern Radio Universe 2013

The Modern Radio Universe 2013

80 years ago, in spring 1933, Karl Jansky published his discovery of cosmic radio emission. This paved the way not only for a new discipline, radio astronomy, but also for an exploration of the universe that now encompasses almost the entire electromagnetic window. Today, radio astronomy is about to enter into yet another new era…
