17th International Symposium on Earth Tides, Warsaw, Military University of Technology, 15-19 April 2013
News
Participation of the members of the Department of Planetary Geodesy in the international conference: 17th International Symposium on Earth Tides, Warsaw, Military University of Technology, 15-19 April 2013.

In the middle of April this year several members of the Department of Planetary Geodesy actively participated in the international conference Earth Tides Symposium (ETS), which is a cyclic conference organized every 4 years. The main organizer of the meeting is the Sub-Commission 3.1 of the International Association of Geodesy “Earth Tides and Geodynamics”. Over 70 scientists took part this year in the conference, representing among others France, Germany, Canada, China Nanking, Spain, Austria and USA. It was decided that about 25 papers presented at the meeting will be published in a special issue of the peer reviewed journal “Journal of Geodynamics”.

Robotics in CBK PAN – Penetrator HEEP
News

Space Research Centre of the Polish Academy of Sciences (CBK PAN) has been involved in the development of space penetrators since 1997. The Institute has a lot of experience in developing hammering penetrators, including the flight models of MUPUS for ESA Rosetta mission and CHOMIK for the Russian Phobos-Grunt mission.

Currently Space Mechatronics and Robotics Laboratory is developing an entirely new penetrator called HEEP (High Energy and Efficiency Penetrator), which is several times stronger than any previously developed electromagnetic penetrator.

The smallest dust grains in the circumsolar dust cloud are the nanodust particles, i.e., the dust grains with the sizes of a few to a few tens millionth parts of millimeter. They are so small they include just several dozen thousands of atoms.

Interplanetary space is filled with magnetized plasma from the Sun (the solar wind) and interstellar gas, mainly hydrogen and helium, which continuously flows through the heliosphere. The interstellar atoms are ionized by extreme ultraviolet radiation and the solar wind. In result of ionization of the interstellar atoms, new ions in the solar wind are created.

The heliosphere is a region in the interstellar space filled with the solar wind plasma, emitted by the Sun. Since the Sun is traversing a partly ionized, magnetized cloud of interstellar gas, the solar wind expansion must be eventually arrested at a certain distance to the Sun. This happens in the locations where the solar wind pressure becomes equal to the pressure of the interstellar matter. Ultimately, however, the solar wind matter cannot accumulate infinitely inside the heliosphere and must find an exit path to the interstellar space. But where exactly is this path located? And is there just one evacuation path or more? These questions cannot be answered directly because up to now there have been just two active space probes – Voyager 1 and 2 – to reach the boundary regions of the heliosphere, and this happened in the regions least suspect of being anywhere close to the solar wind evacuation path. Therefore, answering these question can only be done by remote-sensing measurements and theoretical modeling.

CBK PAN will participate in a NASA space mission Interstellar Mapping and Acceleration Probe (IMAP), scheduled for launch in 2024. The selection of the winning proposal submitted in response to the Announcement of Opportunity released in 2017, was announced in Washington DC on June 1, 2018 (https://www.nasa.gov/press-release/nasa-selects-mission-to-study-solar-wind-boundary-of-outer-solar-system).
