12. December, 15:00: High Energy Astrophysics with small budgets

Speaker: Rene Hudec (Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic) | Location: PR 8/18

The recent progress in cubesatellite technologies allows astrophysical payloads for cubesatellites to be considered. In will present and discuss possible payloads and projects based on very small satellites for X ray and UV astronomy (CZ BRITE X-UV). In addition to that I will briefly present our robotic telescopes (and show some recent results for HE sources, e.g. blazars) as well as recent Austrian-Czech project on digitization and scientific use of historical astronomical photographic records and will discuss some examples of importance of these long-term data (typically covering up to 100 years) for high energy astrophysics.
