In December 2015, scientists and engineers started the installation of KM3NeT.. Once completed, it will be the largest neutrino detector in the Northern Hemisphere. Located in the depths of the Mediterranean Sea, the telescope will be used to study the fundamental properties of neutrinos and map the high-energy cosmic neutrinos emanating from extreme cataclysmic events in the Universe.
Using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array [ALMA], and many other telescopes on the ground and in space, an international team of astronomers obtained the best view yet of a collision that took place between two galaxies when the Universe was only half its current age. They enlisted the help of a galaxy-sized magnifying glass to reveal otherwise invisible detail. These new studies of the galaxy H-ATLAS J142935.3-002836 have shown that this complex and distant object looks like the well-known …
The 19th International School of Cosmic Ray Astrophysics [ISCRA 2014] will take place from 4-11 July 2014 in Erice, Italy. The theme of the school is “Exploring the High Energy Universe”.
The course, which is held biannually, will focus on high-energy processes in our universe made available through present and future experiments from both ground-based and space-based observatories. ISCRA 2014 is designed to provide an overview of the new findings in high-energy astrophysics and how this has affected our understanding of the…
