Planet Analysis and Small Transit Investigation Software (PASTIS)

Start date: Oct 1, 2014, End date: Sep 30, 2016,

"Detection and characterization of extrasolar low-mass planets are currently limited by several astrophysical and instrumental effects. New exoplanet-hunter instruments, with improved capabilities, are foreseen at the horizon 2016 - 2017. To find other Earths, new state-of-the-art instruments must be followed by the state-of-the-art of data analysis software that takes into account for the astroph ...

Sounding Stars with Kepler (ASK)

Start date: May 1, 2011, End date: Dec 31, 2015,

The NASA space mission Kepler is providing continuous high-precision photometry of thousands of stars. The aim of Kepler is the discovery of Earth-size planets around stars similar to the Sun, and a thorough study of the continuum of planetary systems in the Universe.Because of their unprecedented precision, the Kepler data act as a precious source of information for various astrophysical studies ...

Gaia Research for European Astronomy Training - ITN (GREAT)

Start date: Mar 1, 2011, End date: Feb 28, 2015,

Gaia is the ESA cornerstone mission set to revolutionise our understanding of the Milky Way. This proposal will shape a critical mass of new expertise with the fundamental skills required to power the scientific exploitation of Gaia over the coming decade and beyond.The GREAT-ITN research theme is 'Unravelling the Milky Way' focused on four fundamental problems: unravelling the origin and history ...

The detection of more than 300 extrasolar planets orbiting other solar-like stars opened the window to a new field of astrophysics. Many projects to search for Earth-like planets are currently under way, using a huge battery of telescopes and instruments. New instrumentation is also being developed towards this goal for use in both ground- and space-based based facilities. Since planets come as an ...

SOS - Science on Screen (ScienceOnScreen)

Start date: May 1, 2011, End date: Nov 30, 2011,

Everyday we are flooded with scientific terms: in the media, at the supermarket, at the pub with our friends. But who makes this science? And how is it done? How is a scientists’ everyday life? Who better to set things straight than scientists themselves?Using amusing but accurate real life stories, this proposal aims for the production of a television show, to be broadcast on the 23rd of Septembe ...
