JAMES WEBB SPACE TELESCOPE: SCIENCE OPPORTUNITIES AND MISSION PROGRESS

The James Webb Space Telescope, the planned successor for the Hubble Space Telescope and the Spitzer Space Telescope, is making excellent technical progress. It will carry four instruments to cover the wavelength range from 0.6 to 28 µm with imaging, spectroscopy, and coronography, and will have a deployable 6.5 m aperture telescope cooled to about 40 K. It will be launched by an Ariane 5 vehicle from French Guiana to reach an orbit around the Sun-Earth Lagrange point L2. Two of the flight instruments are completed ...

TWEAKING GENERAL RELATIVITY: MOND RELATIVISTIC GRAVITY THEORY AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR DARK MATTER

The success of the standard concordance cosmological model in predicting the primordial abundances of the light elements, and modeling the power spectrum of fluctuations of the cosmic microwave background have suggested to many that its ingredients are all one needs to understand galaxies and galaxy systems. However, a number of known problems with this expectation may signal the failure of standard gravity theory already on galaxy scales. An alternative nonrelativistic gravity theory - AQUAL, suggested by the phenomenological MOND paradigm, does rather well for ...

MEASUREMENT OF THE THERMAL SPECTRUM OF HAWKING RADIATION FROM AN ANALOG HORIZON

Hawking predicted that black holes should radiate thermal radiation, the temperature being a function solely of the geometry near the horizon of the black hole. The same arguments show that one would also expect thermal radiation from other horizons, like the sonic horizon formed in a trans-sonic flow, or the horizon to fluid surface gravity waves formed by a blocking flow.This talk will discuss the phenomenon of black hole thermal emission, problems with its derivation, the ubiquity of such thermal emission by horizons, and the measurements ...

STAR FORMATION IN THE DESERT: PROBING THE LOW-DENSITY EXTREMES

Over the past decade multi-wavelength observations have revealed the extraordinary ubiquity and diversity of star formation in galaxies, ranging over billionfold ranges in star formation rates (SFRs), whether expressed in absolute terms, or in terms of areally or mass-normalised SFRs. Considerable attention has been focussed on the high-density extremes in starbursts and galactic nuclei, but much can be learned as well from star formation in low-density regimes-- in the outermost discs of spiral galaxies, and in early-type galaxies, low surface brightness galaxies, and extreme ...

ON THE FORMATION OF MASSIVE GALAXIES

Looking backwards we have been able to reconstruct from the detailed structure of our own Galaxy and from the fossil evidence derived from the study of nearby galaxies a plausible history of how galaxies formed over the last several billion years. In addition, now that we have a quite definite cosmological model, providing us with a quantitative picture of how perturbations grew from very low amplitude Gaussian fluctuations, we can perform the forward modeling of representative pieces of the universe using standard physical processes ...
