Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
You will learn details about his pedagogical achievements, and a great approach to teaching. Find out how Professor Tyc has contributed to advances in invisibility or geodetic lenses. You can also read about his broad popularization activities.
On the occasion of the celebration of 100 years since the beginning of teaching at the faculty (October 19, 1920), the Dean of the Faculty of Science MU Tomáš Kašparovský praised a total of 35 personalities, including our colleagues Professor Jana Musilová and Professor Zdeněk Mikulášek.
The course was started by doc. RNDr. Miloslav Zejda, Ph.D. with the lecture "HRD - the most important astrophysical diagram". Classes will be held in person from 19 October to 7 December 2021, always on Tuesdays from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm in the auditorium of the MU Faculty of Science.
CubeSat GBRAlpha, released by our colleague Norber Werner and his team, detected the second gamma-ray burst. Thanks to the Nordic Optical Telescope, we also know the redshift of the burst. The Neil Gehrels Swift team determined the exact coordinates of the burst in the Aquila constellation
Colleagues from DTPA prepared an afternoon program for children from the JCMM Brno suburban camp. Together with the children, they assembled a solar telescope, the children built a paper sundial with the help of a compass, and there was even time for a lecture on threats from the depths of space.
The CubeSat of our colleague Norbert Werner and his team detected its first gamma ray burst. The burst was found in the data by Jakub Řípa. It is the first gamma ray burst ever detected by one unit CubeSat and by the CubeSat dedicated only to gamma ray burst observation. Congratulation to the team!
Our two students have been awarded the Dean's price - PhD student Romana Grossová supervised by Norbert Werner and master's degree student Samuel Valach supervised by the director of our institute Rikard von Unge
Our colleague Ernst Paunzen and his collaborators discovered not only over one thousand of chemically peculiar stars but also several mercury-manganese stars in LAMOST survey.
Prof. Norbert Werner, from the Department of Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics, has been awarded Ignaz L. Lieben Award. The award is given by Austrian Academy of Science to scientists for outstanding achievements in the fields of molecular biology, chemistry or physics. Norbert Werner was awarded for his achievements in X-ray astronomy.
On the morning of the 22nd of March the Soyuz rocket carried nanosatellite GRBAlpha to orbit. Our colleagues were participating on its development.
Our colleagues from the Department of Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics have made a brand new vidcast "Dialogues about Cosmos".
There are 9 videos from physics departments available for the online Researcher's Night 2020 available till the end of the year.
Our experts have devised a technique that facilitates the production of nanofibre mask filters. Now, with the help of a grant from the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic (TAČR), they are verifying how the plasma-treated surface of the filter handles temperature fluctuations, storage and other "pitfalls" of commercial production.
Our colleague Mgr. Jiří Žák has been awarded as an outstanding masters degree student, award for excellent teachers gained prof. Tomáš Tyc and prof. Mirko Černák gained award for his long-term excellent research results. Congratulations!
Roger Penrose, Reinhard Genzel and Andrea Ghez received the Nobel Prize for their work in the field of black hole research.
Online summer school GATE for students of astronomy and astrophysics took place in August - successfully!
An astrophysicist of world renown will be undertaking research at Masaryk University in Brno since this summer. Originally from Slovakia, Norbert Werner is coming to south Moravia thanks to a special grant. He will be researching intergalactic gases here and wants to cooperate with Brno companies focused on the space industry.
Astrophysicist Norbert Werner has become the third grant holder of MUNI Award in Science and Humanities (MASH). After eight years at Stanford University in the United States, he moved to Loránd Eötvös University in Budapest, Hungary. He is also giving lectures in Hiroshima, Japan.
