LIGO, speculazioni su una presunta ‘scoperta’

Questi sono giorni abbastanza caldi, si fa per dire, perchè ci stiamo avvicinando al D-Day. Infatti, il prossimo giovedì 11 Febbraio potrebbe segnare una data significativa nella storia della scienza poichè i ricercartori che lavorano all’esperimento Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) potrebbero annunciare una grande notizia: stiamo parlando della rivelazione sperimentale delle onde gravitazionali, una delle predizioni più spettacolari della teoria della relatività generale Continua a leggere LIGO, speculazioni su una presunta ‘scoperta’

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 matter in the Universe, general relativity, gravitation, cosmology, heavy ion collisions and the formation of the quark-gluon plasma, white dwarfs, neutron stars and pulsars, black holes, gamma-ray emission in the Universe, high energy cosmic rays, gravitational waves, dark energy and dark matter, strange matter and strange stars, antimatter in the Universe, and topics related to these.
SMFNS2013 – Strong magnetic fields in the Universe, strong magnetic fields in compact stars and in galaxies, ultra-strong magnetic fields in neutron star mergers, quark stars and magnetars, strong magnetic fields and the cosmic microwave background, and topics related to these.
