The amended Framework Education Programmes published on 1 February 2021 by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports introduced significant curriculum reduction for physics education in elementary schools. The Education Programme disregards, for example, Newton’s laws or the explanation of the transformations of different forms of energy.
The Pierre Auger Collaboration is releasing 10% of the data recorded using the world’s largest cosmic ray detector. These data are being made available publicly with the expectation that they will be used by a wide and diverse community including professional and citizen-scientists and for educational and outreach initiatives.
Latest observation by GRANDMA network allows scientists to set limits on specific astrophysical phenomena. Astronomers were looking for gravitational waves to see events invisible to optical and radio telescopes.
A serial production of protective masks will be launched by the Institute of Physics in cooperation with ten Czech companies
One of the first batches of the planned weekly 50 000-piece productions will be delivered to the institutes of the Czech Academy of Sciences, where researchers test samples for the presence of the coronavirus
This year marks the 20th anniversary since the founding agreement of the international Pierre Auger Observatory in Argentina has been signed. The celebration ceremony that took place last week in Malargüe was attended not only by a delegation of Czech scientists but also by the Czech Ambassador in Argentina Karel Beran.
Successful FZU scientific teams which deal with current scientific and technical challenges in the fields of nanoelectronics, photonics, magnetism, functional and bioactive materials and plasma technologies will join forces in this modern centre
Exploring the extreme Universe: International collaboration for a new gamma-ray observatory launched
The new observatory will probe the most extreme phenomena and environments to address some of the most compelling questions about our Universe, from the origin of high-energy cosmic rays to searching for dark matter particles
The Institute of Physics has ranked among the group of prestigious European institutions having the right to use the certificate. However, it is important to realize that it does not end by gaining the award. On the other hand, to retain it our progress needs to be evaluated in regular intervals.
The unique L3-HAPLS laser system, developed by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) for ELI Beamlines, was on July 2, 2018, ceremonially launched.
The Otto Wichterle Award is a prestigious honour coming with a financial reward which has been awarded to excellent young scientists by the Czech Academy of Sciences since 2002.
Masek took the picture of it with the aid of the FRAM robotic telescope, which is a part of the Pierre Auger Observatory in Argentina. The observatory is designed to detect ultra-high-energy cosmic rays.
