DIANA Project

DIANA is an European Framework Seven (FP7) project, SPACE-2011 collaboration, project no 284405, which conducts a systematic collection and coherent analysis of observational data from the birth-places of extrasolar planets, the so-called protoplanetary discs. DIANA stands for DIscANAlysis.

SAFARI/SPICA Project

SPICA is a joint European-Japanese project under phase-A study at ESA: an infrared space observatory with a large, cryogenically cooled telescope. One of the instruments on board is SAFARI, a far-IR spectrometer providing instantaneously wavelength coverage of the 34 to 230 micron domain. One of the core objectives of this mission is to trace the gas, dust and ice evolution in planetary systems.

Enrichment of the HR 8799 planets by minor bodies and dust

27
May, 2020

In the Solar System, minor bodies and dust deliver various materials to planetary surfaces. Several exoplanetary systems are known to host inner and outer belts, analogues of the main asteroid belt and the Kuiper belt. We study the possibility that exominor bodies and exodust deliver volatiles ...

Gas and dust cooling along the major axis of M33 (HerM33es) -- Herschel/PACS [CII] and [OI] observations

12
May, 2020

M33 is a gas rich spiral galaxy of the Local Group. We investigate the relationship between the two major gas cooling lines and the total infrared (TIR) dust continuum. We mapped the emission of gas and dust in M33 using the far-infrared lines of [CII] and [OI](63um) and the TIR. The line maps ...

Photoevaporation of the Jovian circumplanetary disk I. Explaining the orbit of Callisto and the lack of outer regular satellites

11
May, 2020

Context: The Galilean satellites are thought to have formed from a circumplanetary disk (CPD) surrounding Jupiter. When it reached a critical mass, Jupiter opened an annular gap in the solar protoplanetary disk (PPD) that might have exposed the CPD to radiation from the young Sun or from the st...
