Astronomers at the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics (MPE) have succeeded in measuring the black hole mass from the motion of luminous gas that is seen swirling around Sagittarius A*, the black hole at the center of the Milky Way. It matches the measurement honoured with the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2020. Conclusion: [...]
An international team of scientists led by Dr Stuart Ryder/Macquarie University and Prof. Ryan Shannon/Swinburne University of Technology, has spotted a remote blast of cosmic radio waves lasting less than a millisecond. This 'fast radio burst' (FRB) is the most distant ever detected. Its source was pinned down by the European Southern Observatory’s (ESO) Very [...]
An international team of researchers led by Ph.D candidate Mark Snelders (ASTRON and University of Amsterdam) has discovered radio pulses that last only millionths of a second. With this it has been proven that previously discovered fast radio bursts (FRBs) can last even shorter than a thousandth of a second, giving life to the term [...]
The 2024 Commission Work Programme was adopted on 17 October 2023. The Work Programme puts a strong focus on simplifying rules for citizens and businesses across the European Union. It reflects on the achievements of the past four years, outlines the Commission’s new proposals for the months ahead and presents significant initiatives aimed at cutting red [...]
In light of the disruptions caused by the fallout of Hamas’ terrorist attacks across Israel, the European Commission has carefully assessed the challenges experienced by partner organisations in the region. In line with the European Union’s commitment to foster inclusivity and collaboration among our research community members, the European Commission would like to inform that [...]
An international research team led by Project Assistant Professor Satoshi Ohashi of the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ) has conducted high-resolution and multi-wavelength observations of a protoplanetary disk around a relatively young protostar, DG Taurus (DG Tau), using ALMA to study the structure of the disk and the size and amount of dust, the [...]
Using the NOEMA observatory, an international team of scientists has measured the precise distances for a large (135 sources) sample of the brightest galaxies selected from surveys done with the Herschel telescope. Robust values of the distances were derived for all sources, based on the detection of at least two emission lines for each object, [...]
The Horizon Europe Info Days - Cluster 4 will take place on 11-12 oct 2023. Aim is to inform potential applicants about the funding opportunities of the 2024 calls of Horizon Europe Cluster 4 'Digital, Industry and Space' Work Programme 2023-2024. Read more.
After a major upgrade, the Sardinia Telescope (SRT) issued a call for proposals. See here. SRT participates in the Transnational Access program of the Opticon Radionet Pilot program (ORP), which is funded by the EC Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under grant agreement No. 101004719. Access/funding can be offered through the ORP project. Submission deadline: [...]
