More cool results shown by Cath Trott @CathAstro@ICRAR@ARC_ASTRO3D during her invited talk at #ESOz2020: studying the Lyman-alpha & 21cm Forests using low-frequency radio observations and galaxy stacking at those frequencies. Outlook slide included. Amazing @mwatelescope !
But I’m still thinking about the request of not tweeting (publicising) your work/research... it has happened to me before (even specifically requested do no write/show anything from their research)... what is the point? Don’t you want to share your work and talk about it?
Day 2 of #ESOz2020 conference. Simon Driver @ICRAR presents a panchromatic view of the Universe. Spectroscopic surveys have to get multiwavelength data, as galaxy evolution cannot be understood if information from x-ray to radio is not available (new #thread)
Simon Driver @ICRAR emphasises that getting the spectra energy distributions (SEDs) of galaxies is key for getting accurate estimations of galaxy properties (e.g. stellar masses, dust, star-formation rates & histories). Some examples provided #ESOz2020
Simon Driver discusses the problem of the mass in galaxies. Where is it? What is the baryon budget of galaxies? #ESOz2020
On my way from Sydney to Perth for the #esoz2020... no movies (no individual screen), laptop without battery, no books and a very slow WiFi connection... another hour to go... At least I almost finished my talk and worked a bit more with my Python code...
And there we go! #ESOz2020 is starting, thanks LOC (@CDPLagos et al.) for organising this. And a warning: expect many tweets about the Conference during the week, I’m trying to compile them in a thread. It’s also my way of getting notes of the talks, photos of the slides included
#ESOz2020 starts with invited speaker Tessa Vernstrom @CSIRO_ATNF who talks about “The MWA (Murchison Widefield Array interferometer and Extragalactic Science”
Amateur astronomers around the world are noticing that something weird is happening to the Great Red Spot in Jupiter... observations are showing variability in just few hours. Stay tuned ... or even better, if you can take photos of Jupiter, do it!
Another busy day... I had to skip morning sessions at the #A3Dscimeet19 as I needed to do a couple of “urgents” things at the uni including marking quizzes from my tutorings and preparing an invitation letter for a PhD student visiting us in July...
But before I forget again, it is very important to say a big “Happy Birthday” to the @theskyentists co-host & awesome young astronomer & Science communicator @AstroKirsten as she just completed another full orbit around the Sun!
Day 2 of this very busy week. Unfortunately #Pint19AU & #A3Dscimeet19 colliding the same days and work/life balance made me arrive late for #A3Dscimeet19 1st session about the ASKAP. Kid school starts at 9:20am 45 min away from here. Mum will pick him up from aftercare at 6pm
Otherwise mum would have changed her working hours to start later, she would have taken him to school while I would have been prompt at 9am for #A3Dscimeet19, and I would have picked him up from aftercare at 6pm...
At least I arrived just on time to listen summary slide by Tristan Reynolds @ICRAR showing some great @WALLABYsurvey Early Science HI Spectral Line Observations, finding new dwarf galaxies in a galaxy group & high dark matter fractions #A3Dscimeet19
Important: even when you’re having a busy day full of things, you’re a human being and YOU NEED TO EAT AND DRINK WATER after a long meeting and 2 hours class... almost done having lunch, on my way (late) to @ARC_ASTRO3D#A3Dscimeet19
The main reason I’ve been quite off from social media lately is the #AusESO2019 conference, organised by @AAOMacquarie@AAOorg@ESO_Australia et al, starting now.After enjoying 1h40min of driving in Sydney I got in time for listening Eric Emsellem @ESO, connecting Australia & ESO
PS: GPS said “45 min” when I departed from “home” this morning...
I’m half way my trip to the Anglo-Australian Telescope @scienceANU at @SidingSpring.After 7 months & suffering the Guillain-Barré Syndrome in July, now ~98% recovered, I’m really looking forward combining supporting telescope observations & stargazing.I’ll need many more of these
You don’t know how much time I’ve waited to see this again!
Last night I didn’t have much time to tweet or share my excitement. After needing less than 5 min to get a very good polar alignment with my small telescope I took some few astrophotos... but I’ve forgotten the timelapse cable at home (ahhh!!) & have to take every shot by hand!
