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.
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 new laboratory is part of the Detector Development and Data Processing Department. It was set up at the premises of the Institute of Information Theory and Automation of the CAS
CTA will be the next generation ground-based instrument in the detection of gamma rays, which are very high-energy electromagnetic radiation emitted by the hottest and most powerful objects in the Universe – such as supermassive black holes, supernovae and possibly remnants of the Big Bang
The Pierre Auger Observatory in Argentina examines high-energy cosmic rays. According to new findings, these cosmic particles are created in distant extragalactic objects.
This year's awards went to the Department of Optical Materials, Department of Thin Films and Nanostructures and the Department of Astroparticles Physics.
The Pierre Auger Observatory is the world’s leading science project for the exploration of cosmic rays. The Observatory has achieved excellent results helping scientists to better understand particles with energies more than a million times larger than the beam energy at the current world largest accelerator.
Neutrinos, the most common particles in the Universe, we still know a little about them. They are the subject of research of NOvA experiment.
An author or co-author of six inventions, six patents and several papers in peer reviews.
The Nobel Prize is connected to the theoretical discovery of a mechanism that contributes to our understanding of the origin of mass of subatomic particles.
This image was first of the asteroid photographs made within the European project GLORIA, the global network of robotic telescopes. The image has thus achieved wide publicity, it was shown e.g. at the web pages of NASA or published in the newspaper Guardian.
