16 avril 2019 : « A Cosmic Tasting Menu Dust, Ice and Water – Connecting Laboratory Studies to Space Exploration » – IAU Symposium 350 Public Lecture Series

Dr Kimberly Ennico (NASA)  will share a handful of science missions she has worked on personally at NASA and explain how they have benefited from laboratory astrophysical studies here on Earth. The talk will feature how scientists are exploring molecules and dust in our Universe, with e.g. Spitzer & SOFIA space telescopes (and ground based observatories), and our hopes for the James Webb Space Telescope. She will ponder the unfamiliar in the familiar — in distant tiny Pluto — and how New Horizons’s data begs novel interpretation of exotic ice mixtures and their flows. She will look next to the role of water in our solar system, from water on the Moon to the plumes from the icy moons of the giant planets to the mysteries of Mars’ wet past. Voir la vidéo …

Janvier 2019 : Astrophysique de laboratoire : Nanocosmos

Le 9 janvier 2019, Christine Joblin et Hassan Sabbah, tous deux chercheurs à l’IRAP, participaient au forum  » A la croisée des Sciences : Interagissez, Imaginez, Innovez » organisé par l’Université Fédérale Toulouse Midi-Pyrénées avec le soutien de la Région Occitanie Pyrénées-Méditerranée. Leur contribution est disponible sous forme de diaporama et de vidéo. Voir le diaporama / Voir la vidéo …

Décembre 2017 : « Nanocosmos Team & Lorenzo Palloni present « ESTRELLA » » – ERCcOMICS

NANOCOSMOS is an ERC project that investigates the processes involved in the formation and evolution of cosmic dust, heretofore unknown: several teams from ICMM-CSIC in Madrid, Spain and the IRAP-CNRS in Toulouse, France are taking advantage of the new observational capabilities of the ALMA observatory in order to reveal the physical and chemical conditions in the dust formation zone of evolved stars. In conjunction with groundbreaking ultra-high vacuum experiments and astrophysical modeling, these observations are providing a cutting-edge view of cosmic dust. Voir la vidéo …

Novembre 2017 : « NANOCOSMOS_ERC, Gas and dust from the Stars to the Laboratory »

The Nanocosmos project, funded by an European Research Council Synergy grant, will study the environments around evolved stars with several laboratory experiments. Among them, the Stardust Machine will reproduce how dust grains born and evolve when ejected from the dying star, trying to disentangle the beginnings of those molecules and, therefore, our own chemical origins.
