  • The Physical Properties of the Near Earth Asteroids 2005 UD and 2001 SG286

    Research into the orbital and physical properties near-Earth asteroids (NEAs) is important as these objects can reveal information about the origin and history of our planetary system.Here we present our findings regarding the physical characteristics of the near Earth asteroids (NEAs) 2005 UD and 2001 SG286. The 2005 UD is currently a possible

  • The planetary system of Proxima Centauri seen with ESPRESSO

    During last decade there have been a tremendous increase in detection and characterization of low-mass exoplanets, reaching the Earth size and mass domain, in particular those orbiting M dwarf stars, due to their smaller sizes and masses, resulting in planet larger transit amplitude and radial velocity signals. Extremely precise instruments such as

  • The rich chemistry of two warm-giant planets

    High-resolution (HR) ground-based spectrographs have drastically improved the investigation of exoplanet atmospheres. In this scenario the near-infrared (0.9-2.45 μm) HR (R /sim 50000) spectrograph GIANO-B mounted at the Nasmyth-B focus of the Telescopio Nazionale Galileo (TNG) telescope is playing an important role.With the simultaneous detection

  • The Visual Monitoring Camera on Mars Express: calibrating a new science instrument made from an old webcam orbiting Mars

    The Visual Monitoring Camera (VMC) is a small camera onboard Mars Express, initially intended to provide visual confirmation of the separation of the Beagle 2 lander. In 2007, a few years after the end of its original mission, VMC was turned on again to obtain full-disk images of Mars for outreach purposes (Ormston et al., 2011). As VMC obtained

  • Detection of barium in the atmospheres of the ultra-hot gas giants WASP-76b and WASP-121b. Together with new detections of Co and Sr+ on WASP-121b

    Context. High-resolution spectroscopy studies of ultra-hot Jupiters have been key in our understanding of exoplanet atmospheres. Observing into the atmospheres of these giant planets allows for direct constraints on their atmospheric compositions and dynamics while laying the groundwork for new research regarding their formation and evolution

  • Hubble constant and nuclear equation of state from kilonova spectro-photometric light curves

    The merger of two compact objects of which at least one is a neutron star is signalled by transient electromagnetic emission in a kilonova (KN). This event is accompanied by gravitational waves and possibly other radiation messengers such as neutrinos or cosmic rays. The electromagnetic emission arises from the radioactive decay of heavy r-process
