The Cherenkov Telescope Array Releases its Updated Science Case

The latest iteration of the Cherenkov Telescope Array's (CTA's) science case, Science with the Cherenkov Telescope Array, was made available today via the CTA website library and arXiv and will be published in a special edition of the International Journal of Modern Physics D.

The work includes more than 200 pages that introduce and elaborate on CTA's major science themes and place CTA in the context of other major observatories.

La supernova Casiopeia A no explica el 'mar' de rayos cósmicos

  • Hasta ahora se pensaba que los rayos cósmicos eran fruto de la aceleración de partículas en los restos de estas explosiones
  • Los telescopios MAGIC, en Canarias, han permitido medir con precisión el espectro de rayos cósmicos de Casiopeia A

Prime candidate to explain cosmic ray sea runs short of energy

Scientists have been advocating for decades that cosmic rays are accelerated in the remnants of supernova explosions. However the MAGIC telescopes have now observed that one of the best candidates, the supernova remnant Cassiopeia A, falls very short of the required energy.

T2K presents hint of CP violation by neutrinos

The international T2K Collaboration strengthened its previous hint that the symmetry between matter and antimatter may be violated for neutrino oscillation. A preliminary analysis of T2K's latest data rejects the hypothesis that neutrinos and antineutrinos oscillate with the same probability at 95% confidence (2σ) level

T2K presenta indicios de violación de carga-paridad en neutrinos

  • El nuevo análisis refuerza la posibilidad que los neutrinos se comporten de manera diferente en sus formas de materia y antimateria
  • Investigadores del Institut de Fìsica d'Altes Energies (IFAE) en Barcelona, del Institut de Física Corpuscular (IFIC) en Valencia y de la Universidad Autónoma de Madrid participan en el resultado
