All-Sky Camera in honor of Jane Phillips

Hi Jane, we saw you there, today, alive. You were among us, people who loved you and appreciated your work and friendship. You were alive in our thoughts, when we were remembering you. Today we gathered to put a plate on the All-sky camera in your honor, but, to say the truth, the real honor was to spend some of our time with you. Too short, though, like a fireball that lasts few seconds, but amazes you! Bye, Jane!                                          ...

To not end up like dinosaurs

Our Researchers, Laura Faggioli and Marta Ceccaroni, pubblished a dissemination article about the activities aimed to not end up like dinosaurs. The article was published on the n. 68 of magazine “Coleum Astronomia 2017” and it was written in cooperation with the ESA SSA-NEO Coordination Centre team of ESRIN (Italy). From the definition and classification of NEOs, to the mitigation techniques, the article describes the process used to monitor the  Near Earth Objects throughout the computation of the orbit and the probability of collision with the Earth. In the article some examples of real events are reported in order to explain...

Prisma Day

We are very pleased to announce that today, May 16th 2017, the first Italian meeting about meteors and meteorites science will take place in Florence at the Museum of Natural History. The meteors, or falling stars, are the visible traces of asteroids’ or comets’ fragments with dimensions of less than one meter. They get into the Earth’s atmosphere at high speed, and they crush to the ground. The Prisma Project idea is to locate the point of impact and the meteors’ pieces. The region of possible impact can be very large, and its extent is related to the orbit accuracy. Starting from...
