Workshop on observatory synergies for astroparticles physics and geosciences

Rationale. The recent convergence between Geoscience and Astroparticle Physics. In the last years there appeared many areas of natural synergy between Geosciences and Astroparticle Physics. Earth and Astroparticle sciences share a mutual scientific culture based on common objects of study, methods and approaches. They both deal with complex natural systems at much larger scales than the human scale, need deployments […]

PCCP lecture course: “The Physics of KAGRA gravitational-wave detector” – January 8, 2019

by Eleonora CAPOCASA (National Astronomical Observatory of Japan) Three 2nd generation gravitational-wave detectors (the two LIGO and Virgo) are about to come online again, in an upgraded version, for a new data-taking period. The increased sensitivity of the network is expected to result in a higher rate of detections with louder signals so as to enter a mature phase of […]

Thanks to Borexino and neutrinos, we now know the sun with unprecedented detail !

  After more than ten years from the beginning of its scientific activity focused on the internal structure of the Sun, which gave an understanding of the power mechanism of our star with unprecedented detail, the Borexino experiment at the INFN Gran Sasso National Laboratories publishes on October 25th on Nature the compendium of its results on solar neutrinos. With […]
