Despite the short delay, the world’s largest and most advanced space telescope will be launched on December 22 to a distance of 1.5 million kilometers from Earth, a particularly useful location for conducting observations and offering solutions to many unanswered riddles. The origins of the universe and the finding of new planets are discussed. In many ways, astronomy is at a watershed moment. As astronomers point out, we are merely at the beginning.
The results follow each other continuously, and we are now reporting them at an almost daily rate, thanks to never-before-achieved technological improvements, big telescopes on the ground, and advanced observatories put directly in space. Even recent Nobel Prizes in Physics have been awarded for astrophysics discoveries, ranging from new exoplanets to gravitational waves. In 190 pages, a new book from Mondadori Università’s Science and Philosophy series chronicles the most recent achievements of modern astronomy. On the other hand, Patricia Caravio, a writer and former head of the National Institute of Astrophysics (INAF) in Milan, is a well-known personality. She is an astrophysicist who has worked on space initiatives for a long time. The title is intriguing: Sidereus Nuncius 2.0, which pays homage to Galileo’s legendary masterpiece, which is now replete with new discoveries in a new and current form of astronomy.
Sidereus Nuncius 2.0 will be presented in Conversano (Bari), at the Castello degli Acquaviva d’Aragona conference hall, on Thursday, November 25 at 6.30 p.m. as part of the PugliaScienza review 2021, which is part of the Puglia region’s cultural program, the Department for Culture, Protection and Development of Cultural Enterprises, and the Conversano municipality’s “Dentro Il Borgo” program Professor of General Physics at Bari Polytechnic, Nicola Giglito, spoke with the author: “Astronomy is a very old science,” says Caravio, who has received numerous awards, including Republica’s Leader of Merit, and is facing huge changes. The exploration of the universe is not limited to “light.” It all started with visual observations, and now this research is expanding to include infrared, ultraviolet, X, and gamma radiation that human eyes cannot detect.
Different and complementary information is carried by cosmic rays, neutrinos, dust, meteorites, and gravitational waves. We make progress in understanding the universe and increasing the quality of life for all of us by learning to decipher these messages.” Puglia is quickly moving on to more useful space assignments. Paolo Minafra, an amateur astronomer and event organizer, has already brought in astronauts from space such as Paolo Nespoli and Luca Parmitano, as well as Franco Malerba last summer, to Bari and other provinces for educational and educational events. Puglia, a scientific and technologically advanced province, is home to one of Italy’s earliest aerospace regions, and is gearing up for its first port European space, at Grotagli (Taranto), as part of Virgin Galactic’s upcoming private and tourism space flights. The headquarters of SITAEL, a firm that makes technological advancements and critical components for satellites and space probes, is located in Mola, in the province of Bari.
Only the next day, in Conversano, at the same time and place, but on Friday 26, the presentation of the book “Spazio Made in Italy,” produced by the Espress series of the “Il Capricorno” in Tours yen, to celebrate Italian firms in the space sector. Pierluigi Pirelli, SITAEL’s General Director of Operations, will attend the presentation. PugliaScienza 2021 will take place in Conversano during the Christmas season, from December 22 to 29, with the “Show of Poets Among the Stars” at Piazza San Giuseppe, featuring artworks from the Federico II International Prize and Poets Among the Stars cycles. On December 18 and 19, an astronomical observatory will be installed on the Torre Maestra in Castello degli Acquaviva d’Aragona. Other meetings with astronomy and space exploration champions are planned for January.
