814. WE-Heraeus-Seminar — Heritage of SOFIA – Scientific Highlights and Future Prospectives
22 Apr 2024 - 26 Apr 2024 • University of Stuttgart, Germany
Organizer:
Wilhelm and Else Heraeus-Foundation
Abstract:
SOFIA, the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy, is a Boeing 747SP aircraft modified to carry a 2.7-meter telescope. Flying above 99% of the water vapor of Earth’s atmosphere, SOFIA provided the astrophysical community with regular access to the mid- and far-infrared universe. Being an 80/20 partnership between NASA and the German Space Agency, DLR, the project was cancelled in 2022. The end of the SOFIA mission is leaving the astronomical community with no far-IR observatory in near sight, however with a rich heritage of astronomical data awaiting to be explored. This 814. WE-Heraeus-Seminar will bring together experts and young researchers in the field of infrared astronomy and infrared instrumentation to celebrate SOFIA's scientific highlights, to explore its data heritage, and to discuss and define scientific goals, technologies, opportunities, and also strategies towards future far-IR astronomy and its platforms.

“Some Like It Hot!” A Journey from the Hot IGrM to the Multiphase CGM
22 Apr 2024 - 17 May 2024 • Garching, Germany
Organizer:
MIAPbP - Munich Institute for Astro-, Particle and BioPhysics an institute of the Excellence Cluster ORIGINS
Abstract:
The exchange of mass, energy, and metals between galaxies, their surrounding circum-galactic medium (CGM), and the gas permeating halos at larger scale represents a fundamental part of the modern astrophysics. Both components still elude our knowledge. Indeed, we are very far from having a census of the CGM properties in the bulk of the galaxy population. Furthermore, the halo gas is well known at large scale only in the most massive halos of our Universe, the galaxy clusters (intra-cluster medium, ICM), but it is still very elusive in the bulk of the virtualized halo population at the group mass scale (Intra-group medium IGrM).

With the advent of instrument such as eROSITA, XRISM and JWST, and the enormous variety of results collected by Alma, MUSE, KCWI and LOFAR, it is time to review the state of the art of this research field. The final goal of this workshop is to fill the knowledge gap and review in an unbiased way all the key aspects of the baryon cycle: from the hot IGrM enclosed in the bulk of the virtualized halo population, to the CGM at hundreds of kpc from the central galaxy, and down to the main mechanisms in act at the galaxy center able to trigger the baryonic exchange.

Habitability: The Astrophysical, Atmospheric and Geophysical Implications
21 May 2024 - 14 Jun 2024 • Garching, Germany
Organizer:
MIAPbP - Munich Institute for Astro-, Particle and BioPhysics an institute of the Excellence Cluster ORIGINS
Abstract:
It is widely accepted that habitability and the capability of a planet to maintain its habitable conditions are deeply interwoven with its chemical composition and physical properties such as its atmospheric and geological/geophysical characteristics, orbital motion, dynamics, and its interactions with its host star. How these interactions originate and how they enable the planet to maintain its habitability are complex questions that can only be answered through collaborations between scientists of their respective fields. This workshop aims to bring together scientists from the fields of stellar astrophysics, planetary science, planetary dynamics, geology, and geophysics to discuss fundamental questions regarding the formation, characterization, and detection of habitable planets. Our plan is to facilitate interactions among participants through lectures, presentations and discussion sessions as well as to provide them with ample time to initiate collaborations and carry out their independent research. Our workshop is open to scientists of all levels, in particular junior and early-career researchers.

Quantum Aspects of Inflationary Cosmology
24 Jun 2024 - 19 Jul 2024 • Garching, Germany
Organizer:
MIAPbP - Munich Institute for Astro-, Particle and BioPhysics an institute of the Excellence Cluster ORIGINS
Abstract:
How did quantum fluctuations of the inflaton field provide the seeds for structure on cosmological scales? Did other fields play a role during inflation? How did their quantum fluctuations imprint on cosmological observables (e.g., non-Gaussianity) or survive as cosmological relics today (e.g., dark matter, matter/antimatter asymmetry)? How can these degrees of freedom be embedded into a compelling UV theory? By bringing together experts on particle physics and cosmology, we hope to develop a deeper understanding of these tough questions over the course of this 4-week MIAPbP meeting.

DPG-Lehrerfortbildung — Astronomie
01 Jul 2024 - 05 Jul 2024 • Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, Germany
Abstract:
Diese fachliche DPG-Fortbildung behandelt exemplarisch ausgewählte Themen der Astronomie, zum einen von den physikalischen Grundlagen her, zum anderen auch für den direkten Einsatz im Unterricht. Von der Geschichte der Erforschung des Sonnensystems mit Hilfe der Raumfahrt, Betrieb einer Schulsternwarte, einfachen Beobachtungen und Rechnungen geht es über Planeten und Exoplaneten zum Weltraumwetter, von der Multimessenger-Astronomie, Durchmusterung der Milchstraße und deren Schwarzen Loch zur Entfernungsbestimmung im Universum, und von visuellen und Teleskopbeobachtungen sowie dem „Paradoxon“ des dunklen Nachthimmels bis hin zur Darstellung von Physik und Astronomie in Filmen.

High-Energy Plasma Phenomena in Astrophysics
09 Sep 2024 - 20 Sep 2024 • Garching, Germany
Organizer:
MIAPbP - Munich Institute for Astro-, Particle and BioPhysics an institute of the Excellence Cluster ORIGINS
Abstract:
In recent years, spurred in large part by the development of first-principles numerical simulations, the plasma astrophysics community has made important strides in understanding the plasma processes relevant for astrophysical systems. The next step, which will be a key topic of the MIAPbP program, is to connect the rich plasma behavior to observed radiative phenomena. These phenomena include old puzzles, e.g. hard X-ray emission from accreting black holes, gamma-ray flares from blazars, cosmic ray acceleration, giant magnetar flares and GRBs. Plasma physics is also key to solving new puzzles such as the cosmological FRBs and gamma-rays from neutron star mergers. The role of plasma instabilities is especially prominent in transient phenomena and strong connections are emerging between plasma physics and time-domain astronomy, a quickly developing observational field. Plasma physics also plays an increasing role in multi-messenger astronomy where main targets are energetic compact objects capable of producing neutrinos, gravitational waves, and nonthermal radiation. The current efforts to understand plasma behavior lay the foundations for the future of high-energy astrophysics. Within a two-week MIAPbP program, we want to facilitate progress in this direction by bringing together both senior researchers as well as early-career scientists.

Bad Honnef Physics School — Searching for Quantum Gravity in the Sky
16 Feb 2025 - 21 Feb 2025 • Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, Germany
Organizer:
Wilhelm and Else Heraeus-Foundation
Abstract:
The goal of this physics school is to offer master and Ph.D. students from the field of experimental and theoretical physics as well as mathematics and philosophy, a coherent introduction to the subject of quantum gravity phenomenology from both theoretical and experimental perspectives. The participants should be interested in, or already work on, the search for quantum gravity from the theoretical or experimental side, and be motivated to learn from both sides to be able to get a more complete overview over the research field.
