2014 UN/IAF Workshop on space technology for socio-economic benefits; September 26th - 28th in Toronto, ON. | Space Conference News | Scoop.it

Space technology has advanced rapidly in recent years. Nevertheless, a number of countries still lack the human, technical and financial resources required to conduct even the most basic space-related activities, such as meteorology, communications and natural-resource management. The need to make the benefits of space technology available to all countries has thus grown more urgent with each passing year.

2014 IAU Symposium: September 15th - 19th in the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador

2014 IAU Symposium: September 15th - 19th in the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador | Space Conference News | Scoop.it

In recent years, both space and ground based telescopes are providing new insights to investigate jet physics. New data on jets have been accumulating from space missions such as Swift, XMM-Newton, Chandra, Suzaku, Fermi, Hubble, Spitzer and WISE. Upgraded and future ground based facilities such as JVLA, ATCA, ALMA, LOFAR and SKA will provide higher quality data at both the lowest and highest radio frequencies.


At higher energies, the atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes, HESS, MAGIC, and VERITAS have provided evidence indicating rapid time variability in jets, and in the future these facilities will be augmented by CTA. Although we are now living in a "golden age" and despite the recent progress, many new and unsolved problems specific to the physical mechanisms underlying jet physics are still under debate...

2014 Bright Emissaries Conference: August 11th - 13th in London, ON.

2014 Bright Emissaries Conference: August 11th - 13th in London, ON. | Space Conference News | Scoop.it

The Bright Emissaries Conference, co-chaired by Carol Jones and Aaron Sigut, will bring together a preeminent group of 70 astrophysicists from six continents to share their most current research related to all observational and theoretical aspects of B-emission Stars. These stars are 10 times more massive than our Sun and emit between 100-10,000 times its energy. Most importantly, they spin at very high rates of rotation and as such, material is launched from the stellar surface to form disks. Disks are ubiquitous in the universe, with the disks of spiral galaxies, such as our Milky Way, and the planetary disk out of which our solar system formed, being prominent examples. Understanding the effect of the rate of rotation of a disk on its dynamics may ultimately provide a clearer picture of stellar evolution, in short, how Earth came to be...

The unprecedented high-precision data that are being gathered by current and forthcoming surveys will provide a new vision of our Galaxy as well as a challenging window into the high redshift Universe. These massive amount of new data needs to be interpreted and understood within a cosmological framework. Observations of the chemo-dynamical properties of baryons in galaxies of different morphologies up to very high redshifts will also be available when new observatories start to collect data (ALMA, ELT, LSST)....
