The GEMMA Podcast
A podcast about Gemini Observatory and its role in the Era of Multi-Messenger Astronomy. Featuring news related to multi-messenger astronomy (MMA), time-domain astronomy (TDA), our visiting instrument program, and more through interviews with astronomers, engineers, and staff both here at Gemini (North and South) and abroad.
Science Meetings organized by Gemini
March 2020: The Chilean community has been gathering in small meetings on this topic in previous years and this meeting aims to continue the tradition with the goal to strengthen this area of research and encourage collaborations.
October 2019: There were five main themes for this symposium:
- White dwarfs in binaries and Type Ia supernovae progenitors
- Precision studies of white dwarf structure
- Stellar physics and galactic evolution
- Fundamental physics from observations of white dwarfs
- Dust and gas debris around white dwarfs
August 2019: 10 years into the ESO Public Survey VISTA Variables in the Via Lactea (VVV), and its second phase, the VVV eXtended Survey (VVVX), the science team met in Hilo to discuss the current status of the survey, future follow-up programs with high-multiplx spectrographs and the opportunities of multi-wavelength analysis using existing and future catalogs from, among others, ATLASGAL, GLIMPSE, DECAPS, UKIDSS-GPS, Gaia, VPHAS, Chandra X-ray, and time domain analysis with ZTF, LSST, IPAC/Neowise, OGLE and TESS/K2.
