EAS-EPS: collaboration in the sky

By Luisa Cifarelli & Thierry Courvoisier. Published on 01 May 2011 in:
News, , ,

We could debate endlessly as to whether astronomy is physics applied to the cosmos, and the objects found therein, or whether physics is a special branch of astrophysics, one that deals with the phenomena accessible to the laboratory. What is certain is that both sciences have deep common roots.

The communities of (particle) physics and astrophysics are getting closer now, not only in their intellectual goals, but also through the development and use of common tools, like ground based or space borne telescopes, and laboratory…
