Exploring the X-ray Transient and variable Sky
ID: 607452
Start date: 2013-09-20, End date: 2017-01-01
A wide diversity of astrophysical phenomena - from stellar flares in the solar neighborhood to accretion in galactic nuclei at cosmological distances - are characterized by flux and spectral changes on time scales ranging from a fraction of a second to several years. Every da...

Ultra-luminous supernovae : understanding their nature and cosmic evolution
ID: 291222
Start date: 2012-04-01, End date: 2017-03-31
"Until the last few years, all of the exploding stars in the Universe were thought to be of two types : core-collapse of a massive star or thermonuclear explosion of a white dwarf. The advent of wide-field synoptic sky surveys has opened up a new parameter space which allows ...

Mars Analogues for Space Exploration
ID: 607297
Start date: 2013-12-13, End date: 2018-01-01
Assessing the habitability of Mars and detecting life, if it was ever there, depends on knowledge of whether the combined environmental stresses experienced on Mars are compatible with life and whether a record of that life could ever be detected. However, our current ability...

Stardust-The Asteroid and Space Debris Network
ID: 317185
Start date: 2013-02-01, End date: 2017-01-31
Asteroids and space debris represent a significant hazard for space and terrestrial assets; at the same time asteroids represent also an opportunity. In recent years it has become clear that the increasing population of space debris could lead to catastrophic consequences in ...
