  • ITU Satellite Webinar – Non-Geostationary Satellite Systems​​: entering into the era of broadband service d​​elivery​
    on 15/09/2020 at 10:02

    Oct. 07, 2020Non-Geostationary Satellite Systems​​: entering into the era of broadband service d​​elivery​ ​Since the World Radiocommunications Conference 2019 took place in Sharm el Sheik, less than a year has passed overcoming turbulences and challenging circumstances. An overview of WRC-19 decisions followed by presentations from NGSO Operators will update us on the new regulatory framework and the current situation of these exciting projects, providing clarity on the direction towards WRC-23 and the benefits that these systems will bring to the society in a near future.

  • Space Cafe Tokyo Online – September 2020
    on 15/09/2020 at 09:57

    Sep. 29, 2020Every month, we have Space Cafe Tokyo at Good Heavens British Bar in Shimokitazawa, Tokyo. However, due to the COVID-19 situation, we have decided to hold events via Zoom and YouTube Live for now. Please gather in front of your computer/tablet/smartphone with drinks! ” The dark side of the universe.” Ever wondered why we need dark energy and dark matter? Dark energy and dark matter are two mysteries of fundamental physics that have been revealed by studying the cosmos. Come along to this Space Cafe Tokyo to hear Prof. Tamara Davis (University of Queensland) talk about the multiple lines of evidence that convince us the dark side of the universe is real. After this talk you should understand why astrophysicists are so sure that the vast majority of the universe is made up of stuff we can’t see or touch. Speaker’s info: Professor Tamara Davis is an astrophysicist searching for the elusive “dark energy” that’s accelerating the universe. Highlights of her 20 years in the field are measuring time-dilation in distant supernovae, helping make one of the largest maps of the distribution of galaxies in the universe, and using astrophysics to test new theories of gravity. Her accolades include the Astronomical Society of Australia’s young researcher award, the Australian Academy of Science’s medal for female leadership in science, and an Order of Australia.

  • Persephone Pluto System Orbiter and Kuiper Belt Explorer
    on 10/09/2020 at 03:11

    Oct. 07, 2020GoSpaceWatch Online Lecture: Persephone Pluto System Orbiter and Kuiper Belt Explorer by Dr Carly Howett, Southwest research Institute, Boulder, Colorado, USA. Persephone is a NASA-funded concept mission study to investigate the feasibility of sending a mission to orbit within the Pluto system and further investigate the Kuiper Belt. We will discuss the science motivation for returning to Pluto, as well as the complexities and difficulties with sending a probe to Pluto. Dr. Carly Howett (SwRI) is the Principal Investigator of Persephone, and is the Deputy Principal Investigator of the Ralph Instrument on NASA’s New Horizons mission (which encountered Pluto in 2015).
