2) ExoJC-2019 - 28 mars 2019 - LAB


Vous êtes doctorant ou postdoc? Vos activités de recherche touchent au domaine des exoplanètes? Cette annonce est pour vous!

ExoJC-2019, première rencontre annuelle des jeunes chercheurs en exoplanétologie, se tiendra le 28 mars 2019 au Laboratoire d’Astrophysique de Bordeaux.  

Ces rencontres sont un moment dédié aux échanges entre jeunes chercheurs (doctorants, post-doctorants, nouveaux recrutés) qui travaillent ou sont simplement intéressés par le domaine des exoplanètes. Pour ce domaine de recherche clairement pluridisciplinaire, elles visent à:

 1. faciliter les échanges entre les différentes expertises: sciences planétaires, techniques de détection, physique stellaire, traitement du signal, développement instrumental, modélisation ...
 2. permettre aux jeunes chercheurs du domaine de se connaitre,
 3. renforcer les liens et créer de vraies collaborations transverses ou non,   
 4. renforcer la culture scientifique.

A terme, l’objectif est de développer un esprit de communauté et d’aider à structurer la science des exoplanètes en France.

Les jeunes chercheurs en thèse et postdoc sont encouragés à participer et à présenter leurs travaux. Les présentations orales sont vivement encouragées, mais les posters seront également acceptés. La durée de chaque présentation sera assez courte (environ 10/15 minutes, ajustée en fonction du nombre de participants). La langue de la conférence sera le français afin de faciliter les échanges.

Les contributions seront à soumettre avant le 22 février 2019 sur le site web de la conférence, dont le lien vous sera communiqué très prochainement.

Les missions pourront être prises en charge par le comité d’organisation.

2) BlueMUSE @ESO/VLT

Bonjour,

Je vous contacte  au sujet d’un nouvel instrument que nous proposons pour le VLT, appelé BlueMUSE.  
Avec Roland Bacon nous proposons ce concept à l’ESO pour une phase A, et qui consiste à un IFU
visible comme l’instrument actuel MUSE, et les caractéristiques suivantes :

- une couverture dans le bleu, de 350 à 600 nm
- une résolution spectrale 2x celle de MUSE (R=3000-5000 de 350 à 600 nm)
- un champ de vue 2 fois plus large en surface (1.4 x 1.4 arcmin)

Un résumé du projet est mentionné ici:
https://bluemuse.univ-lyon1.fr/

Même si une majorité de cas scientifiques concernent la science extragalactique / PNCG, nous proposons
un cas scientifique sur les comètes dont j’attache quelques pages extraites de notre proposition à ce
mail. Ce n’est très certainement pas le seul cas scientifique qui pourrait intéresser la communauté PNP.

BlueMUSE sera proposé en 2019 à l’ESO et à ce titre fait partie de la liste des moyens sols sur lesquels les
programmes nationaux sont amenés à se prononcer dans le cadre de la prospective INSU. Il nous semblait
important de vous informer de cette demande et du cas scientifique si une partie de la communauté PNP y
trouve un intérêt scientifique.

Bien cordialement,

Johan Richard

Registration and abstract submission are now open for the science conference New Horizons in Planetary Systems. The meeting is jointly organized by NRC Herzberg and NRAO  – as part of their roles within the North American ALMA Science Center (NAASC) and will have a broad scope, including planetary systems in formation within protoplanetary disks, minor objects in the solar system, debris disks and exoplanets. Experts will be asked to provide insights from all these fields to enhance our understanding of how planets form and evolve. Although it is organized by the NAASC, the meeting is not ALMA-centric, with a strong focus on the impact of the New Horizons mission flyby of a Kuiper Belt Object in January 2019, as well as experts from the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite and other facilities, who will be asked to provide a multi-chromatic picture of the current understanding in their fields. Invited speakers have been asked to provide broadly accessible talks.
 
The meeting will be held at the Victoria Conference Centre in the heart of picturesque Victoria, British Columbia, on Canada's Pacific coast. Local attractions include whale watching, wine tours, the world-famous Butchart Gardens, and the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory.  Excellent beaches, diving, camping and hiking are all within a day's drive from Victoria.

9) Two sessions at AOGS 2019, Singapore, from 28 July to 2 August 2019

PS05: Cassini's Legacy: Science Highlights and Discoveries at Saturn

Session Summary:
The Cassini-Huygens Mission to Saturn ended in a dramatic plunge into Saturn’s atmosphere on September 15, 2017 sending back in-situ data as long as possible. Since 2004, Cassini and the Huygens probe revealed the entire Saturn system and opened up new Ocean Worlds for further exploration. In its final 9 months Cassini’s 20 Ring-Grazing orbits bought it just outside the rings followed by a series of 22 highly inclined “Grand Finale” orbits with closest approach between the innermost D ring and Saturn’s upper atmosphere. The final 22 orbits enabled the opportunity for unique science observations including: probing of gravitational and magnetic field moments to higher order and precision; determining the ring mass; in-situ sampling of the plasma environment, upper atmosphere and exosphere; and imaging both Saturn and rings at high resolution. Data obtained on these orbits have led to surprising results. We propose a multi-disciplinary session to report on analysis and modeling of data collected during this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explore Saturn up close in addition to highlighting the legacy of discoveries of the Saturn system made over thirteen years of exploration.

Conveners:
Scott Edgington, Sushil Atreya, Athena Coustenis, Wing-Huen Ip, Norbert Krupp

    We look forward to hear about your latest Cassini research.

Best regards,
Scott, Sushil, Athena, Wing, and Norbert
