CONFERENCES IAU 100 Hours of Astronomy

In collaboration with Astrophysical Observatory of Turin – National Institute for Astrophysics and Italian Institute of Nuclear Physics.

Astronomy and Space-Time, from the origin to the end of Time in shaping the Universe
Saturday, 5.30 pm
with Mariateresa Crosta (Inaf)

The 100 years that celebrate the IAU foundation also mark the 100 years from the experiment that confirmed Einstein’s theory of gravity, the theory that shapes our Universe over a range of sixty orders of magnitude.

In the past, Astronomy has helped us to perceive and quantify Space and Time, make predictions through observations, and understand the fundamental mechanisms of nature. But Einstein told us that space-time is one elastic continuum, so today’s Astronomy works with new tools to map and explore the Universe, in which even our traditional concept of Time might not exist anymore.

A journey into Extreme Universe
Sunday, 5.30 pm
with Luca Latronico (INFN)

The 100th birthday of IAU occurs at the beginning of a new era of astrophysics, powered by new observations of energetic photons at the extreme boundary of the electromagnetic spectrum and new particle messengers from the cosmos.
Luca Latronico, a researcher from the Italian Institute of Nuclear Physics, will guide the audience in a journey towards upcoming discoveries on the Extreme Universe enable by some of the most advanced telescopes operating today on observations of gamma rays and gravitational waves.
