ESO's fleet of telescopes in Chile have detected the first visible counterpart to a gravitational wave source. These historic observations suggest that this unique object is the result of the merger of two neutron stars. The cataclysmic aftermaths of this kind of merger - long-predicted events called kilonovae - disperse heavy elements such as gold and platinum throughout the Universe. This discovery, published in several papers in the journal Nature and elsewhere, also provides the strongest ev...

For the first time, NASA scientists have detected light tied to a gravitational-wave event, thanks to two merging neutron stars in the galaxy NGC 4993, located about 130 million light-years from Earth in the constellation Hydra. Shortly after 8:41 a.m. EDT on Aug. 17, NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope picked up a pulse of high-energy light from a powerful explosion, which was immediately reported to astronomers around the globe as a short gamma-ray burst. The scientists at the National S...

The first Copernicus mission dedicated to monitoring our atmosphere, Sentinel-5P, has been launched from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome in northern Russia. The 820 kg satellite was carried into orbit on a Rockot launcher at 09:27 GMT (11:27 CEST) today. The first stage separated 2 min 16 sec after liftoff, followed by the fairing and second stage at 3 min 3 sec and 5 min 19 sec, respectively.

The first full-scale model of the rocket motor that will propel Ariane 6 and Vega-C into orbit has been cast and filled with inert propellant for testing at Europe's Spaceport in French Guiana. The P120C is the largest solid-propellant rocket motor ever built in one segment. Each P120C will hold over 140 tonnes of propellant in a carbon fibre casing almost 11.5 m long and about 3.4 m in diameter. It is derived from Vega's current first stage motor, the P80, which holds 88 tonnes of propell...

There's no map showing all the billions of exoplanets hiding in our galaxy -- they're so distant and faint compared to their stars, it's hard to find them. Now, astronomers hunting for new worlds have established a possible signpost for giant exoplanets. A new study finds that giant exoplanets that orbit far from their stars are more likely to be found around young stars that have a disk of dust and debris than those without disks. The study, published in The Astronomical Journal, focused on ...

Astronomers have identified a bumper crop of dual supermassive black holes in the centers of galaxies. This discovery could help astronomers better understand how giant black holes grow and how they may produce the strongest gravitational wave signals in the Universe. The new evidence reveals five pairs of supermassive black holes, each containing millions of times the mass of the Sun. These black hole couples formed when two galaxies collided and merged with each other, forcing their superma...

      “Analysis of small-scale variability of coronal observations with the  

      Hinode/X-Ray Telescope”

     

       The analysis of the time variability of coronal emission is one useful tool to 

      look for evidence of pulsed heating. During my PhD program, I analysed

      the small-scale variability of an active region, that was observed by XRT/ 

      HINODE when it was close to the disk centre in 2006 Nov 14, in the  

      Al_poly filter band. I compared measured fluctuation intensity distributions 

      with the distribution expected for Poisson noise and found small but  

      important asymmetries. Using Monte Carlo simulations, only part of the

      asymmetries can be explained by Poisson photon statistics, and we have

      to include a tendency for exponentially decreasing intensity, such as

      would be expected from a cooling plasma produced after a nanoflare

      (Terzo et al., 2011).

     

    •   Analysis of small scale variability (seconds) of emission of solar coronal plasma with statistical analysis of X-ray images sequences of the solar Corona, gathered by the solar satellite HINODE/XRT.
    • Managing, visualization, and analysis of the large set of data from the satellite was made by tools and self-made routines, programs and simulation in IDL programming language, in UNIX environment.
    • Serial and Parallel computing: solution of plasma physics and MHD

    equation with C, Fortran and MPI (Message Passing Interface)

    • Computational methods, numerical algorithms and simulations with
    •                 Fortran, C, IDL, MPI. 
    • Application of numerical models (Monte Carlo simulations) and MHD

                  simulations on plasma physics.

    • Research Activity in Plasma Physics, Statistical Physics, data analysis,  
    • Serial and Parallel Computing.
    • Comparison of theoretical results with observational results, and data analysis results.

      “Analysis of Active Region's Loops observed with HINODE/XRT”

      Nine filters on two filters wheels are available on HINODE/XRT. The ratio of 

      the emission measured in different filters is well known to provide an

      estimate of the temperature of the plasma assumed isothermal along the  

      line of sight. During my Master Degree Thesis, I addressed temperature 

      diagnostics, in an Active region (AR10923) observed in 2006-11-12 in five 

      different filters (Al_poly, C_poly, Be_thin, Be_med, Al_med). I compared the 

      temperature obtained from the filter ratio along selected coronal loops

      with those obtained from a hydrostatic loop model, concluding that a good

      description of the observed loops needs different and/or more complex

     models.
