SO Web-Colloquia: Thematic area 12 of the CSIC’s new White Book:Our Future? Space colonization and exploration
The exploration and colonization of the outer space represents a foreseeable future for the Humanity. This endeavour involves deepening our knowledge about the formation and evolution of the solar system, of other planetary systems, emergence of life (and its prospects once it exists), the interaction between Earth and Space (particularly with its Sun) and the impact of space conditions (radiation, gravity, etc.) on Earth-borne organisms....

SO Web-Colloquia: Flaring on the Sun at all scales
The Sun shows activity across a wide range of size and energy scales. We shall take a journey from the smallest scale events to the largest energy releases in the solar system. The energy release is due to the magnetic fields on the Sun and how they interact. Using EUV/UV spectroscopy different layers of the solar atmosphere can be probed in order to understand the physical processes that occur. The EUV imaging spectrometer onboard the Hinode...

So Web-Colloquia: The star formation process on cloud-scales in nearby galaxies
Where do stars form and how is their formation regulated across galactic disks are two critical questions for our understanding of the star formation process. High angular observations of nearby galaxies allow us to sample the star formation process across entire galactic disks reaching now regularly the scales of the star-forming units, namely Giant Molecular Clouds (GMCs) and HII regions. Such data provide new insights on the molecular gas...

SO Web-Colloquia: Recent findings on nova explosions
Nova events are the result of the interaction of low-mass binary systems. A compact white dwarf (WD) accretes material from an old and cold companion until a thermonuclear runaway takes place on its surface. Such explosive events can be considered the scaled-down siblings of supernova (SN) explosions, but its study has many advantages over SNe, as nova events are more numerous (some systems even exhibit recurrent explosions within decades) and...

SO Web-Colloquia: Following black hole evolution from z=5: mergers and outflows
The growth and evolution of the most massive black holes, and their host galaxies, can be followed from z=7 and even earlier. The critical events that shape this evolution are major mergers, Eddington or super-Eddington accretion, violent star formation, and powerful outflows. I will present the results of a systematic study of 40 AGN at z~4.8 using Gemini, VLT, Herschel and ALMA. Our recent (2019) ALMA data allow a fresh look at major mergers...

The power of low activity black holes
It is possible that most galaxies host a black hole at the centre, most of the time this being in a relatively quiescent state. The so-called low luminosity Active Galactic Nuclei are characteristic of this phase. These objects represent the vast majority of the active galactic nuclei (AGN) population in the near universe, and still the least conforming class with the standard AGN scenario. Their low luminosity is at odds with their often...

SO Web-loquio: Massive black hole binaries in the cosmos
Massive black holes weighing from a few thousands to tens of billions of solar masses inhabit the centers of today's galaxies, including our own Milky Way. Massive black holes also shone as quasars in the past, with the earliest detected a mere one billion years after the Big Bang. Along cosmic time, encounters between galaxies hosting massive black holes in their centers have produced binary massive black holes that eventually coalesced by...

SO Web-loquio: Active Galactic Nuclei: fueling and feedback
Dynamical mechanisms are essential to exchange angular momentum in galaxies, drive the gas to the center, and fuel the central super-massive black holes. While at 100pc scale, the gas is sometimes stalled in nuclear rings, recent observations reaching 10pc scale, or 60mas with ALMA, have revealed, within the sphere of influence of the black hole, smoking gun evidence of fueling. Observations of AGN feedback will be described, together with the...

X-ray Astronomy for non (X-ray) astronomers
Observations of X-rays coming from outside the solar system were pioneered in 1962 by Riccardo Giacconi and colleagues. From that very day, it became evident that X-rays would reveal a very different Universe to that shown by optical or radio telescopes. Indeed, X-rays are typically produced in the environment of black holes, or where the ambient temperature exceeds millions of degrees. X-ray telescopes (which, for good reason, are in orbit)...

Peering into the Dark: Probing the Formation and Early Evolution of Massive Stars
This presentation will focus on recent work aimed at understanding the formation and early evolution of massive protostars. The massive (M>8 Msol) stars into which these evolve are the primary drivers of galactic ecosystems. The energy and nuclear processed material these massive stars inject into their enviroment during their lives and ultimately as supernovae, shapes the physical and chemical evolution of the ISM in galaxies. These stars...

Exploring the origin of gas-rich ultra-diffuse galaxies with HI kinematics
Ultra-diffuse galaxies (UDGs) are one of the most discussed topics in extra-Galactic astronomy in the last lustrum given their puzzling properties: they have luminosities typical of dwarf galaxies, but optical scale lengths similar to very massive spirals. This intriguing combination is hard to explain, and up to date the precise formation mechanism of UDGs remains unknown. With the goal of learning more about their origins, our group has...

Galaxy clusters and their environment
Clusters of galaxies are located at the intersection of cosmic filaments.

HI mapping of nearby dwarf galaxies with SKA pathfinders: unique capabilities of KAT-7 and MeerKAT
Dwarf galaxies are by far the most numerous galaxies in the Local Universe. Their simple structure and proximity provides a unique window to the detailed investigation of various processes necessary for galaxy formation and evolution. One of the most reliable approach for studying the evolution of galaxies is to look at their physical properties using the neutral hydrogen gas (HI).  In this talk I will present ongoing work on the HI properties...

Magnetic fields, rotation, and activity in M dwarf stars

YOUNG RUNAWAY STARS
Most stars have spatial velocities within a few km/s of the average velocity of their surroundings and can be considered to be gravitationally trapped. There are, however, a small number of stars that move at velocities of tens or even hundreds of km/s with respect to their environment and that will eventually escape from there. The archetypal runaway stars are mu Col and AE Aur that escaped in opposite directions from the vicinity of the Orion...

From protostars to planets: the astrochemical link
Protostars accrete their material from the natal cloud through accretion disks. These disks are progressively dispersed by the recently formed star to form protoplanetary discs in which planets are born. Although this process takes a few million years, now we think that the final chemical composition of the gas and dust in the proto-planetary disk is to a large extent determined by the chemical evolution in the natal cloud. Determining the...

Cosmic butterflies: the product of tempestuous stellar marriages
Planetary nebulae are some of the most strikingly beautiful astrophysical phenomena known, gracing many a glossy-paged, coffee-table book and earning them the nickname "cosmic butterflies".

While it remains the standard for astronomy...

The upper atmosphere of a planet plays a key role at protecting the lower altitudes from the effects of energetic stellar EUV and soft X-ray photons and keV-energy precipitating particles. Through a variety of transport processes, the upper atmosphere also participates in the net loss of a planet’s bulk composition into space. As such, the physics and chemistry occurring in the upper atmosphere influence the evolution of a planet over its...

Nebular HeII emission from spatially resolved metal-poor star-forming galaxies
Nebular HeII1640,4686 emission, observed to be more frequent in high-z galaxies than locally, is indicative of far harder ionizing spectrum than that seen in nearby systems. Star-forming galaxies with lower metal content tend to have a larger nebular HeII intensities compared to those with higher metallicities. This agrees with the expected harder spectral energy distribution at the lower metallicities typical in the early universe. Theoretical...
