  • Presented the first results of the Planck mission, which reveals new information on the origin of the universe | IFCA (Instituto de Física de Cantabria)
    Following the publication by ESA of the first full sky Planck image in July last year today sees the release of the first scientific results from the mission These results are being presented by the Planck Collaboration at a major scientific conference in Paris this week based on 25 papers submitted to the journal Astronomy Astrophysics Drawn from Planck s continuing survey of the entire sky at millimetre and submillimetre wavelengths the catalogue contains thousands of very cold individual sources which the scientific community is now free to explore This is a great moment for Planck Until now everything has been about collecting data and showing off their potential Now at last we can begin the discoveries says Jan Tauber ESA Project Scientist for Planck We can think of the Universe as a stage on which the great cosmic drama plays out over three acts Visible light telescopes see little more than the final act the tapestry of galaxies around us But by making measurements at wavelengths between the infrared and radio Planck is able to work back in time and show us the preceding two acts The results released today contain important new information about the middle act when the galaxies were being assembled Eventually Planck will show us the best views yet of the Universe s first act the formation of the first large scale structures in the Universe where the galaxies were later born These structures are traced by the cosmic microwave background radiation released just 380 000 years after the Big Bang as the Universe was cooling Planck has found evidence for an otherwise invisible population of galaxies shrouded in dust billions of years in the past which formed stars at rates some 10 1000 times higher than we see in our own Galaxy today Measurements of this population had never been made at these wavelengths before However in order to see it properly contaminating emission from a whole host of foreground sources must first be removed These include the individual objects contained in the Early Release Compact Source Catalogue as well as various sources of diffuse emission However data collected across Planck s unprecedented wide wavelength range confirm the theory that it is coming from dust grains set spinning at several tens of billion times a second by collisions with either fast moving atoms or packets of ultraviolet light An important step towards removing this contamination was also announced The anomalous microwave emission is a diffuse glow most strongly associated with the dense dusty regions of our Galaxy but its origin has been a puzzle for decades This new understanding helps to remove this local microwave fog from the Planck data with greater precision leaving the cosmic microwave background untouched The Planck Collaboration has identified 189 so far including 20 previously unknown clusters that are being confirmed by ESA s XMM Newton X ray observatory Among the many other results presented today Planck has shown new details of yet other actors on the cosmic stage

  • Researchers offer daily high resolution weather forecasts | IFCA (Instituto de Física de Cantabria)
    University of Cantabria UC are producing since early this year daily weather simulations and predictions of high resolution for the Iberian Peninsula that are distributed freely over the Internet with the system iMeteo www meteo unican com imeteo This system is based on web 2 0 technologies allowing to interact view and combine personalized predictions to explore in detail the results The Meteorology Group formed by researchers at the Institute of Physics of Cantabria IFCA CSIC UC and the Department of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science at the University uses his own adaptation WRF4G of one of the most popular forecasting models WRF to calculate and validate some meteorological topics such as precipitation wind snow or the minimum and maximum temperaturas Open Access simulations have a resolution of 9 km each grid which divides the map has this dimension and are the basis for demand forecasts with higher resolution up to a mile on specific areas of interest By way of comparison the system of the Spanish Agency of Meteorology AEMET has a version to 16 kilometers up to 72 hours forecast which is also published for free and can be viewed in iMeteo and another 6 up to 36 hours The goal of iMeteo is not to provide an alternative for operational forecasting of time in Cantabria but to promote practical applications of this system in some studies predictions of wind power civil engineering said José Manuel Gutiérrez research professor and head of the Meteorology Group This high resolution is being used as the basis of a pilot project with the NCAR National Center for Atmospheric Research USA to adapt and implement in Europe a system of monitoring and maintenance of roads and also forms the basis of various proposals submitted under the Renewable Energy Plan in Cantabria Thus

  • First results of the search for the Higgs boson in collisions at the LHC 7 TeV have been published by CMS | IFCA (Instituto de Física de Cantabria)
    responsible for weak interactions one of the four fundamental forces of nature with the strong interaction electromagnetism and gravity have mass This is one of the fundamental principles of the Standard Model of Particle Physics the currently accepted theory that describes fundamental particles and their interactions The article by CMS First Measurement of W and W Production and Search for Higgs Boson in pp Collisions at s 7 TeV is the first step of the collision probability of production of such particles produced in experiment and the search for Higgs through its transformation decay in W and W bosons Each W boson is observed in CMS through its transformation into a charged lepton electron or muon the corresponding neutrino is not detected The data used for this analysis include events during the period of operation of collisions between protons at 7 TeV in the center of mass of 2010 which represents a luminosity estimated number of collisions recorded of 35 5 picobarns reverse According to the article by CMS the data in the first year of the LHC at this level is insufficient power to detect the Higgs boson in the Standard Model proposed To detect it should increase the number of collisions by a factor 10 at least However some theoretical physicists have postulated the existence of an extra generation of fundamental particles quarks and leptons in addition to three already identified so far by the Standard Model If this theory were true the Higgs production could have been observed in the data collected by CMS in 2010 which is discarded in this article Not find evidence of the Higgs in its 2010 data to exclude the mass range of the Higgs boson between 144 and 207 GeV with a confidence level of 95 and on theoretical models that
