Le James Webb Space Telescope. L’instrument scientifique le plus cher de l’histoire pour voir les premiers instants de l’Univers
03 Nov 2017 • Morges, Switzerland
Abstract:
Le télescope spatial James-Webb (James Webb Space Telescope ou JWST), qui doit remplacer Hubble, est attendu pour 2018. Une étape majeure vient d'être franchie dans la construction du JWST qui a débuté il y a déjà plus de 20 ans : la totalité des 18 segments hexagonaux constituant le miroir primaire ont été assemblés. À présent, une série de tests attend le plus grand télescope spatial jamais construit. Sa surface collectrice est sept fois plus étendue que celle de son prédécesseur, Hubble. L'heure est aux dernières vérifications. Ses concepteurs n'ont pas le droit à l'erreur car il sera en effet impossible d'envoyer des humains réparer cet engin qui sera installé à environ 1,5 million de kilomètres de la Terre, au point de Lagrange L2 du système Terre-Soleil.

Water during planet formation and evolution
12 Feb 2018 - 16 Feb 2018 • Zurich, Switzerland
Abstract:
The workshop will focus on processes governing the delivery of water to planetary bodies in solar and exoplanetary systems, during their formation and long-term evolution. The respective roles of water (ice) inheritance from the interstellar medium, condensation in the protoplanetary nebula and processing and delivery during accretion will be discussed. We will further consider in detail the implications of the late-stage impact phase and long-term consequences for the remarkable diversity of processes affecting the water budget during the evolution of a planetary body. The goal of the workshop is to critically assess the interplay of theory and observations/experiments on the effects of water on planets and establish new research directions.
