Welcome The Center for Space Plasma and Aeronomic Research (CSPAR) at The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) announces the 9th Annual International Astrophysics Conference: Pickup Ions Throughout the Heliosphere and Beyond to be held at the Sheraton Maui Resort and Spa on the island of Maui, Hawaii, March 14 - March 19, 2010. It is now recognized that pickup ions are present in almost all possible space environments, created from atoms originating at comets, planets, the satellites of the gas giants, and the interstellar medium. Indeed, pickup ions can be formed whenever a neutral gas and plasma interact. Over the past three decades, the physics and consequences of pickup ions has been studied in considerable detail, ranging from artificial comet experiments (AMPTE) in the Earth’s magnetosphere, to interplanetary missions to comets Halley, Giacobini-Zinner, and Grigg-Skjellerup, the planets Venus and Mars and the satellites of Jupiter and Saturn, to the outer heliosphere and the solar wind-local interstellar medium boundaries (heliospheric termination shock, inner and outer heliosheath). We will soon have new and detailed observations from the Rosetta mission exploring the interaction of the solar wind with comet

Astrophysics
Although astronomy is as old as recorded history, it was long separated from the study of physics. In the 17th century Galileo Galilei made quantitative measurements central to physics and very important observation in astronomy. Kepler discovered the laws of planetary motion, and later that century Isaac Newton bridged the gap between Kepler's laws and Galileo's dynamics, discovering that the same laws that rule the dynamics of objects on earth rules the motion of planets and the moon. Celestial mechanics, the application of Newtonian gravity and Newton's laws to explain Kepler's laws of planetary motion, was the first unification of astronomy and physics.
These discoveries transformed maritime navigation: starting around 1670, the entire world was measured using essentially modern latitude instruments and the best available clocks. The needs of navigation provided a drive for progressively more accurate astronomical observations and instruments, providing a background for ever more available data for scientists.
Spectroscopy
Spectroscopy is a branch of physics (optics) that is central to astrophysics. The word 'spectrum' is used today to mean a display of electromagnetic radiation (plural is 'spectra'). In 1671 Newton reported his experiment of decomposing the sunlight into colors using a prism. When you see a rainbow, you are seeing a spectrum.

National Astrophysics and Space Science Programme
South Africa has a long history of excellence in astronomy, a sound high-tech infrastructure and clear skies. Researchers from around the region have joined forces to create a cooperative, combined graduate programme, hosted at the University of Cape Town where South African students and students from around Africa and the rest of the World can study under the guidance of some of South Africa's leading scientists. Three degree programmes are on offer: Lectures will be given by staff in the NASSP consortium and will cover most areas of modern Astronomy, Astrophysics and Cosmology. In addition to lecture courses, students will be expected to take a substantial practical component which will involve several field trips to some of southern Africa's space science research facilities. These include the South African Astronomical Observatory site at Sutherland where the Southern African Large Telescope (SALT, the largest optical telescope in the southern hemisphere) is located; the radio telescope facility at Hartebeesthoek and the High Energy Stereoscopic System (HESS). Students graduating from this programme will be both equipped to do research at the cutting edge of Astrophysics and have the broad science skills needed in any modern technological society.

First Stellar Coronal Loop Imaged Graduate student Bill Peterson, along with Professor Robert Mutel and colleagues from NRAO and ETH Zurich, have made the first images of a coronal loop structure on a star other than the Sun. In the January 14, 2010 issue of Nature we report multi-epoch radio imaging of the Algol system, in which we see a large, persistent coronal loop approximately one subgiant diameter in height, whose base is straddling the subgiant and whose apex is oriented towards the B8 star.

It involves studies of the physical properties (luminosity, density , temperature) and chemical composition of celestial objects as well as their interactions. Scientists in the field of astrophysics are known as astrophysicists . They typically apply many areas of physics, including mechanics electromagnetism , statistical mechanics, thermodynamics , quantum mechanics, relativity, nuclear and particle physics , and atomic and molecular physics. Astrophysics can be subdivided into observational and theoretical aspects. Through observational astrophysics, scientists have discovered and studied such objects as planets stars , pulsars, magnetars, galaxies nebulae , and black holes. They have also observed the birth and death of stars

The study of cosmology is theoretical astrophysics at the largest scales. Because it is a very broad subways, astrophysicists typically apply many disciplines of physics including, but not limited to, mechanics, electromagnetism, statistical mechanics thermodynamics quantum mechanics relativity, nuclear and particle physics , and atomic and molecular physics. In practice, modern astronomical research involves a substantial amount of physics. The name of a university's department ("astrophysics" or "astronomy") often has to do more with the department's history than with the contents of the programs.
