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.

Bringing high spatial resolution to the Far-infrared -- A giant leap for astrophysics

16
Feb, 2020

The far-infrared (FIR) regime is one of the few wavelength ranges where no astronomical data with sub-arcsecond spatial resolution exist. Neither of the medium-term satellite projects like SPICA, Millimetron nor O.S.T. will resolve this malady. For many research areas, however, information at h...

Exploring the formation pathways of formamide near young O-type stars

27
Dec, 2019

Context. As a building block for amino acids, formamide (NH$_2$CHO) is an important molecule in astrobiology and astrochemistry, but its formation path in the interstellar medium is not understood well. Aims. We aim to find empirical evidence to support the chemical relationships of formamide...

ALMA and ROSINA detections of phosphorus-bearing molecules: the interstellar thread between star-forming regions and comets

26
Nov, 2019

To understand how Phosphorus-bearing molecules are formed in star-forming regions, we have analysed ALMA observations of PN and PO towards the massive star-forming region AFGL 5142, combined with a new analysis of the data of the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko taken with the ROSINA instrument ...
