Pre-Main Sequence stars (which are still contracting and whose nucleus is still not hot and dense enough to ignite the nuclear fusion) are often observed surrounded by a disc of gas and dust called protoplanetary discs. Among the reasons why it is crucial to study these discs, it must be cited the fact that they are the environment of planet» Read more
Palermo Astronomical Observatory “Giuseppe S. Vaiana” is one of the research centres of the National Institute for Astrophysics (INAF). It works together with Palermo University through the Department of Physics and Chemistry.
OAPa’s main characteristic is its specific vocation in the field of space astrophysics. The network of activities also involves several frontier research fields both at the national and international level.
OAPA astronomers participated at the study: “Laboratory unraveling of matter accretion in young stars” of G. Reves published by Science Advances
Pre-Main Sequence stars are young stars (solar type pre-main sequence stars are younger than about 30 million years), that are often observed surrounded by a disc of haas and dust called “protoplanetary discs”. These discs can actively accreting matter onto the central star, with a complex process resulting from a complicated interplay between the gas of the disc and the» Read more
Archeo-astronomy with the Gaia-ESO Survey. “The Gaia-ESO Survey: matching chemodynamical simulations to observations of the Milky Way” of B. B. Thompson recently published
Not all the archaeologists do their studies digging holes or classifying artifacts in dusty museums… some of them actually use telescopes… Galactic archeology is a branch of astronomy dedicated to the study of the formation and evolution of the components of our Galaxy (bulge, bar, disc and halo) by analyzing ages, dynamics, and chemical abundances of stars. Not an easy» Read more
