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.

Turbulence is a complex phenomenon with driving mechanisms still not clearly understood in contemporary science. Turbulence naturally appears in astrophysical plasmas, including the solar wind at planetary and interstellar shocks. The shocks in astrophysical plasmas are usually collisionless due to a very low density of the medium and therefore they differ from those observed in ordinary fluids, because they often result from interaction of nonlinear structures.

Sample return space missions are one of the possible options to extend our knowledge about extra-terrestrial materials, processes occurring on surface and subsurface level, as well as interactions between regolith and technology. Collection of surface or subsurface material from such bodies is a key technical process that needs to be performed to achieve the goals of such missions. Although in terrestrial environment the sampling process is relatively easy, smart solutions are needed for zero gravity, unknown and remotely accessible space environment.

The interstellar gas in the Local Interstellar Cloud (LIC) surrounding the Sun is composed mainly of hydrogen and helium. But it contains also other chemical elements, among which the most abundant are oxygen and neon. The neutral atoms from the LIC flow into the heliosphere, where some of them are ionized and carried away with the solar wind as pick-up ions (PUIs), but some of them reach the Earth's orbit and distances even closer to the Sun. Underway, they are focused by solar gravity and form a characteristic, elongated patterns in density, with a cone of enhanced concentration at the downwind side of the Sun.

The November issue of the prestigious science journal Astrophysical Journal Supplement Series presents results of investigations of interstellar matter in the immediate galactic neighborhood of the Sun, carried out by the Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) space probe. An important contribution to the findings presented in a series of 14 papers published in a special topical issue of ApJS was brought by a team of scientists from the Laboratory for Solar System Physics and Astrophysics of the Space Research Centre of the Polish Academy of Sciences (Centrum Badań Kosmicznych PAN, CBK PAN), led by Dr. Maciej Bzowski.
