Astrophysical data

A page that provides access to scientific data, news, and also some information on my activities, that involve studies about intermediate mass protostars (circumstellar disks modelling, chemical conditions in envelopes, and so on).

Astrophysical data

This page provides access to download data for any of the sources we have worked on. Among the data you will find articles, .30m and .lmv files (continuum, CO data, …) for Gildas, and status files to load the modelings that appear in our articles within the JPARSEC tools.

The search form below provides an easy access. Simply type in the source name (or a J2000 position as a set of six values separated by one space for h m s º ' ”) and, optionally, the search radius in degrees. Then click on the Search button, and a list of data will appear. In the list you will see a popup message describing each downloadable file if you keep the mouse on the link without moving it. The source name is solved using Simbad, so any identifier recognized by Simbad is allowed. If you leave the source name field empty and click on search, the table will show all available data. To obtain details for a given source, including maps generated on the fly using JPARSEC library, click on the name of a given source. Note that the search is not working in some cases, for example in the latest version of Chrome.

  • Is it time for a new astronomical yardstick? (2018/04/20 12:00)
    One physicist is proposing we do away with units such as light-years, astronomical units, and arcseconds.
  • The majestic Earth as seen through the eyes of astronauts (2018/04/20 12:00)
    We've gotten so accustomed to seeing photos of Earth from space that sometimes it's easy to forget just how beautiful our planet truly is. Many astronauts have reportedly experienced profound spiritual transformations when viewing the Earth from space, a phenomenon that has come to be called the "overview effect." Apollo 14 astronaut Alan Shepard recalled, "When I first looked back at the Earth, standing on the Moon, I cried. "Looking out the window of his Apollo spacecraft, astronaut Edgar
  • To Seek Out New Life: How the TESS Mission Will Accelerate the Hunt for Livable Alien Worlds (2018/04/19 12:00)
    The just-launched Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) could soon provide the breakthrough identification of dozens of potentially habitable exoplanets right in our cosmic backyard
  • The hunt for the Sun’s ancient siblings (2018/04/19 12:00)

    Thousands of stars were born in the same cluster as the Sun, but where are they now? To help solve this mystery, astronomers have analyzed the DNA of 340,000 stars.

  • Martian moons likely formed after impact with Ceres-sized object (2018/04/18 12:00)
    Based on new research, scientists think that the martian moons Phobos and Deimos likely formed after a catastrophic collision between Mars and a dwarf-planet-sized object. SwRItv According to a new study published today in Science Advances, Mars’ two moons — Phobos and Deimos — likely formed following an impact between proto-Mars and a minor planet roughly the size of Ceres, which is 587 miles wide (950 kilometers). To carry out the study, the researchers created a new mode
  • The world’s most advanced camera aims to image habitable exoplanets (2018/04/17 12:00)
    With its high contrast ratio, DARKNESS could reveal planets hidden in the light of their host stars.
  • Meteoric Diamonds Are Evidence of Long Lost Planets (2018/04/17 12:00)
    Diamonds found in meteorites on Earth may have come from an ancient long-dead planet the size of Mercury or Mars, the first potential known relics from these lost worlds, a new study finds. Scientists examined a ureilite, a kind of meteorite that is rich in carbon and sometimes even possesses diamonds. More than 480 ureilites have been discovered so far, says study lead author Farhang Nabiei, a materials scientist and electron microscopist at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausann
  • Researchers recreate the ice giants’ interiors (2018/04/17 12:00)
    Uranus and Neptune are believed to contain superionic ice at pressure and temperatures not found on Earth.
