Cropped from: Abell 2744, nicknamed Pandora’s Cluster, was the first of six targets within the Frontier Fields programme, which together have produced the deepest images of gravitational lensing ever made. The cluster is thought to have a very violent history, having formed from a cosmic pile-up of multiple galaxy clusters.  Credit:  NASA, ESA and the HST Frontier Fields team (STScI)

A new look at the early Universe with JWST

Just a few months since its launch, the James Webb Space Telescope has already provided a wealth of exquisite data and extraordinary results, being a worthy successor of the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. Thanks to its unprecedented high resolution and sensitivity, the new infrared space telescope is revolutionising the way we see our Universe.

The EPS Historic Site award to the Department of Physics of UNIMI

The award ceremony as EPS Historic Site of the Institute of Complementary Physics of Milan University took place in the hall of the Department of Physics “Aldo Pontremoli” on 16th September 2022. The Institute of Complementary Physics was the first physics institute established at the foundation of Milan University in 1924. The Institute was established by Aldo Potremoli, its first director, and was immediately characterised by the extreme modernity of its research topics.
