ICE joins the Week of Science and Technology


Researcher: Helena Domínguez; Carles Sierra; Emilio García

Setmana de la Ciència i la Tecnologia
Researcher: Helena Domínguez; Carles Sierra; Emilio García

Cada divendres, l'Institut de Ciències de l'Espai (ICE-CSIC) organitza els seus usuals #PizzaSeminars, seminaris informals a càrrec del personal investigador del centre i convidat relacionats amb diferents línies d'investigació.

Amb motiu de la Setmana de la Ciència i la Tecnologia, l'institut celebra ara una edició especial divulgativa d'aquests #PizzaSeminars, en aquesta ocasió dirigida al públic general.

L'esdeveniment inclourà diferents microxerrades d’entre cinc i deu minuts a càrrec de personal júnior de l'institut. Comptarem amb:
  • Emilio García (ICE-CSIC, IEEC), enginyer, parlarà sobre software en projectes astronòmics.
  • Helena Domínguez (ICE-CSIC, IEEC), investigadora postdoctoral, parlarà sobre intel·ligència artificial i classificació de galàxies.
  • Carles Sierra (ICE-CSIC, IEEC), enginyer, parlarà sobre NewSpace i CubeSats.

El 18 de novembre a les 17 h, en directe a través de Youtube.

Podràs seguir-ho aquí!

La Setmana de la Ciència i la Tecnologia és una de les iniciatives més importants de divulgació científica del Consell Superior d'Investigacions Científiques (CSIC). S'organitza des del 2001 amb caràcter nacional amb l'objectiu d'apropar la ciència al públic de totes les edats i despertar-ne l'interès pel saber científic. La Setmana de la Ciència i la Tecnologia al CSIC en la seva edició del 2021 està finançada per la Fundació Espanyola per a la Ciència i la Tecnologia (FECYT) – Ministeri de Ciència i Innovació. A Catalunya, està coordinada per la Fundació Catalana per a la Recerca i la Innovació (FCRI).

"From the Big Bang to Dark Energy: A Brief History of the Cosmos", talk by Emilio Elizalde


Researcher: Emilio Elizalde

From the Big Bang to Dark Energy: A Brief History of the Cosmos
Researcher: Emilio Elizalde

ICE researcher Emilio Elizalde will give the talk "From the Big Bang to Dark Energy: A Brief History of the Cosmos"

Time: 18:00
Place: Sant Cugat del Vallès Cultural House (C/ Castellví 8)
Organization: Amics de la Unesco Sant Cugat del Vallès

Elizalde will talk about how, during the last century, observers of the cosmos and pioneering scientists gained our current understanding of the Universe. In ancient times, humans had tried to explain the cosmos, often using myths and legends. He will focus on the time when cosmology finally became a true science.

It was a slow process, which lasted for much of the s. XX and involved astronomers, cosmologists and theoretical physicists. I will explain the extent to which his discoveries changed our view of the cosmos: from being small, static, immutable, and eternal, it became enormous and dynamic. We will discover that it had an origin, from almost nothing, about 14 billion years ago and that it suddenly experienced a gigantic expansion (the Big Bang), which still continues, albeit in a much smoother way (dark energy).

But, as always, in addition to acquiring precious knowledge, new mysteries have been created where absolute certainty had previously reigned.

From the "preprint" to the web: on the origins of Ciberspace (II), by Emilio Elizalde


Researcher: Emilio Elizalde

Article at Emilio Elizalde's blog
Researcher: Emilio Elizalde

Like all other great advances in human history, www and cyberspace emerged from the exchange. Let's review it: navigation, the exchange of goods and valuable species, brought us to America; trade and connection between populations, by rail, and between continents, by aviation; the exchange of conversations, on the telephone, and the exchange of images, on television. In the case of the internet, it was the exchange of our pre-publications (preprints), immediately (as in the case of telephone conversations) and around the world. To do this, a group of theoretical physicists and engineers created the necessary tools and protocols (languages, editors, codes and networks), as is described in this article in great detail.

A handful of reflections on the future (II), by Emilio Elizalde


Researcher: Emilio Elizalde

Article at Emilio Elizalde's blog
Researcher: Emilio Elizalde

A first analysis of the many contributions on this subject allows us to differentiate, from the outset, those of scholars and professionals in predicting the future, or futurologists, from those who talk more about those who build the future of 'an effective way, with its important discoveries that open new paths and possibilities that no one had thought of before. Within the contributions of this second group, one finds the opinion that the future is something to be done, that it should be built, and that not so much time should be devoted to making predictions. Below I will give some references to these two ways of approaching the subject.
