Help shape ESA's space science programme

What do you think are the most important questions that ESA's future science missions should tackle? Now is your chance to tell us. Günther Hasinger, ESA Director of Science, is inviting the public to share their views on the questions that Voyage 2050, ESA's space science programme for the 2035-2050 time frame, should address. This public consultation opened in March and will run until the end of June.

De quels grands équipements la recherche suisse a-t-elle besoin?

La Confédération a chargé les Académies suisses des sciences d'établir des feuilles de route pour les infrastructures de recherche dans les différents domaines scientifiques. Ces feuilles de route servent à la Confédération à identifier les grands équipements dans lesquels elle doit investir dans les années 2025 à 2028. La nouvelle méthode d'établissement de cette base de décision donne davantage la parole aux scientifiques, explique Jürg Pfister, Secrétaire général de la SCNAT, qui est responsable du projet au sein des Académies.

La SCNAT crée le plus grand réseau de connaissances sur le paysage

Etalement urbain, déclin de la diversité des paysages et de la biodiversité, paysages de montagne marqués par le changement climatique: afin de mieux protéger les paysages suisses avec l’implication de la sphère politique et de la société, de les utiliser et de les façonner de manière plus durable, l'Académie des sciences naturelles (SCNAT) regroupe dès 2019 différentes activités dans une entité baptisée Forum Paysage, Alpes et Parcs. Le plus grand réseau de connaissances sur les paysages naturels et culturels en Suisse verra ainsi le jour. Felix Kienast, de l'Institut fédéral de recherches sur la forêt, la neige et le paysage WSL, en est le président. De même, de nouveaux présidents viennent d’être nommés à la tête d'autres unités de la SCNAT.

«My fear is that the tasks are underestimated severely by Open Data advocats»

On the national and the international level science is pushing towards Open Data. As noble as the principle is, the challenges for scientists are immense. Nicolas Thomas, space scientist from the University of Bern, will talk at the event «Open Data and Data Management – Issues and Challenges» on 29 October in Bern.

XENON1T probes deeper into Dark Matter WIMPs, with 1300 kg of cold Xe atoms

Results from XENON1T, the world’s largest and most sensitive detector dedicated to a direct search for Dark Matter in the form of Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs), are reported today (Monday, 28th May) by the spokesperson, Prof. Elena Aprile of Columbia University, in a seminar at the hosting laboratory, the INFN Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso (LNGS), in Italy.
Extract from the computer simulation created by Dr. Joachim Stadel and other scientists from the University of Zurich: every yellow dot is a halo of dark matter in which a galaxy is embedded. The dark 'threads' are places in the universe with a high density of dark matter, while in the light spots ('voids') only few dark matter is present.

Measuring the Invisible Cosmos

In 2021, the European research satellite Euclid will be launched into space. With Euclid, scientists from Switzerland and 15 other countries want to gain a better understanding of dark matter and dark energy. These two 'things' fill large parts of the universe in the view of modern astronomy, but neither dark matter nor dark energy have been directly observed so far. Researchers at the University of Zurich have prepared a complex computer simulation of dark matter in preparation for the Euclid mission. This mission is of great interest not only to astronomers and astrophysicists but also to particle physicists since particle physics is on the quest for the discovery of the nature and structure of dark matter with its own experiments.
