QUAND A MOI, POUR TUER LE TEMPS, JE M'AMUSE AVEC MON PC A CREER DES AFFICHES COMME CELLE-CI...
Subject: ECLIPSES DE SOLEIL, PHYSIQUE ET EXPEDITIONS 2008 - reminder
REMINDER: SPECIAL ECLIPSE SEMINAR at CERN TOMORROW Wed 5 Dec 16;30, MAIN AUDITORIUM
The NOTTE Experiment, or How to become a Total Solar Eclipse Chaser
The NOTTE experiment (Neutrino Oscillations with Telescope during Total Eclipse) aims at searching for visible photons emitted through a possible radiative decay of solar neutrinos.
The experiment and the expeditions organized by a group of physicists and astrophysicists from INFN and INAF Bologna hunting for Total Solar Eclipses from 1998 to 2006 wil be described. The results of observations performed during total solar eclipse expeditions in 2001 (Zambia) and 2006 (Sahara desert, Libya) are presented and a beautiful photo gallery will be shown. Other peculiar observations that can be made during a solar eclipse are also illustrated.
The seminar will be followed by a brief presentation of future camps for solar eclipse chasers and scientists organized in 2008 in Russia, Kazakhstan, China and Mongolia, in 2009 in Shanghai and on the Easter Island in 2010.
