X-ray astronomy: satellite design and astrophysics of galaxy clusters


Professor Melville Ulmer will spend two weeks at IAG/USP where he will give a series of lectures on astronomical satellites, focusing on X-ray astronomy. These lectures will be part of a mini-course offered by the Graduate Astronomy Program at IAG. During the first week we will focus on technical topics such as the design and development of satellites. In the second week of the course he will address the scientific case for an X-ray satellite, specifically, clusters of galaxies. Prof. Ulmer will discuss current issues that are driving the study of galaxy clusters through X-ray observations (e.g., state of the gas in the outskirts of clusters, cooling-flow and feedback, acoustic waves in the intra-cluster gas, the impact of cluster collisions in the hydrodynamics of the intracluster medium).
